Emma has been asking all summer to do a lemonade stand. Luckily we already had a stand that my mom and I painted for Emma’s birthday party last year. She also decided
School doesn’t start until after Labor Day, but this week kindergarteners could participate in Bridge to School. They ride the school bus to school, meet other kindergarteners or see old friends, learn
The first full week of August is our county fair. It’s pretty much the girls dream day - pony rides, petting zoo, corn pit, rides, games, cheese curds, lemonade and snow cones.
Braden is working on a special project in Miami, which means he’s back to traveling every week. This week we dropped him off at the airport and had to pick him up.

After we dropped Emma at My Little Pony camp we came home to take down Emma’s unicorn party decorations. Funny how all those decorations took two adults a week to put up.
Emma is at My Little Pony musical theater camp this week. She went home with her friend after camp, which gave me and Olivia most of the day together. We spent the morning
Emma had her 5 year appointment today, which included a finger prick, 2 shots and no tears. 💪🏼
It’s been months of planning, weeks of decorating and days of food prep. Finally unicorn party day was here! Decorating started on Tuesday. Lots and lots of decorating. When I started planning

Emma continued her birthday celebration for a second straight day with lunch at the American Girl Bistro. We did some shopping, ate some popcorn and took Olivia to Build-A-Bear. The girls can’t

We squeezed in one last trip to the pool. I think we’re all happy to be home after a super long week of camping. Any time Olivia would get near the “hot
Today was our last full day and night at the campground. Some more friends joined us and we showed them all the fun the pool has to offer, which of course included ice
We’re wrapping up a long nine days at the campground. Today it was warm enough again for some swimming. We spent pretty much the entire day at the pool... complete with ice
It was a chilly 64 degrees today. Since it’s summer I didn’t really pack for 60s weather, so we headed to the nearby Walmart to get a few warmer clothes. While
The weather today was not very promising, but that didn’t stop us from spending a rainy morning at the pool. Olivia wasn’t really feeling the pool this morning, so she hung
We took a break from the campground and headed home for the day. This afternoon was the annual Blarney Stone hunt. Emma has talked about it since last year, so we couldn’t
Braden had to work this week, so it’s just us girls at the bus until Friday. We started off the morning with breakfast and tv. After breakfast was a walk to the
I told them no ice cream today, but we’re kind of on vacation and how can I say no to that face. ❤️
The pool at the campground has two diving boards. I knew it would go one of two ways when Emma asked to try it - (1) she would hate it, or (2) she
We had a long day at the campground. Coloring contest (that they didn’t win 😔). Playground. Petting zoo. Swimming. Jumping. Catching lightning bugs. S’mores. Whew!
