friends…

so sweet watching our little Cecilia having a little friend… for so long all she has known or wanted to be around is her big sister… so it’s so sweet seeing her and little Mallory! This year in kindergarten she met sweet Mallory and their friendship took off. I just love little 6 year old…

friends for dinner…

I think one of my favorite things about this summer is just being home… inviting friends and family over… making really fun things to eat… having time! That’s what I love!We made this amazing strawberry cake for dessert… the drizzle on top was lemon… oh my it was so yummy! We had these sweet friends…

a visit from the fairy…

such a big day… it’s that last little stage of no longer a baby… and I don’t think we’re really ever ready for this to happen… losing a first tooth reminds me of her as a baby… because darnit I remember when she got that tooth! it was her first tooth! and now the fairy…

alligators and a little hike…

Had such a nice day out at Myakka!… one of those places you kinda forget about until you have out of town family visiting… not sure why. It’s so nice out here in the swampy peaceful quietness… only the sounds of whirly birds and lizards hopping from palm frawn to palm frawn… fish jumping, alligators…

fun in the sun…

the girls are turning into shriveled prunes… every day they spend hours in the water… that’s summer! My parents bought a pool and the girls are just loving it! us too! It’s just the perfect solution to 90 degree weather! It’s the only way to cool off… that and popsicles! If we aren’t swimming at…
