Fourth of July

  I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July! This year we had a cookout at our house and we kept things simple with the classics, hamburgers and hotdogs on our new grill, watermelon, blueberry pie, sprinklers and a waterballon fight with family.  The boys lasted in their matching outfits just long enough to snap a pic, and then they stripped down to swim shorts and Jonah to a cool tank top for the rest of the day.  I wore my thrifted red gingham dress I found at the thrift store last summer, and when I found it there I said "this would be a perfect dress for independence day."  The boys got to watch some fireworks with Cam while Jonah and I stayed home to nurse where it was quiet.  It was such a fun day, our first big holiday as three!

Pool Day

we took the boys swimming at the community pool yesterday for the first time this summer.  it was kind of spontaneous of us, and we didn't pack coolers filled with snacks or pack bags of floats and pool toys.  just a bit of sunscreen on everyone, a couple sun hats, and some change for the snack bar and we were good to go.  there was a big slide that they boys loved and jonah for the most part slept in the shade.  his little face under his linen sun hat was the most adorable thing ever, and I loved getting those cold wet hugs and kisses from cohen and elliot in the water.  I got a chance to break in my new swimsuit from lime ricki, (they sell the cutest colorful mix and match swimwear!) which I loved because the top fit like a sports bra, so I could run around with my boys and not worry about anything.  also, high waists are a must for me right now, because, hello, just had a bebe.  we had such a good time and finally got us a little color, but the best part was spending time with my family.  loving these simple summer days!
