How in the world are we already halfway through summer?? Things have been so crazy busy, good busy, but so busy! The kids and I spent a couple weeks down in Charleston visiting family and friends. Robert had a couple work trips (one of which was canceled though), so I decided it would be a great time to go down, and selfishly have some help while he was gone
We had some beach time and the kiddos loved it!
We also spent a TON of time at the pool where Brooke resumed her normal fish-like activities, including diving into the water. I couldn’t make it up.
I was lucky that my mom would watch the kids for me in the morning so I could go to CrossFit (the 6am class – phew!) and it was SO NICE to be back.
We had plenty of chill-at-grandmas-house time because Brooke got the stomach flu (the same one Henry had 5 days prior). It started on Sunday morning and Sunday evening we thought we were in the clear. Monday morning I woke up early to go to CrossFit and came back to grandmas house to craziness. Brooke was super sick, Henry was crying because he was hungry but grandma had Brooke in the bathtub – it was a mess, but we made it through (thanks Mom!). She spent the majority of the day on the couch like the below picture. Until Uncle Sam and Emmaleigh came over around dinner time and she perked up a bit to play with pop-its outside Henry just had a good ‘ole time soaking up the quiet and one-on-one time with mommy!
Once Miss Brooke was feeling better, we went out on the town – to Home Team BBQ. The wings were amazing.
We spent some time with sweet Mr. Connor (and Aunt Rah Rah and Brandon) – he took a liking to the Patron bottle (no babies drank any Patron. Mommies might have, but babies did not.)
Then we hit up the aquarium, courtesy of Uncle James and Aunt Heidi! She loves this place. She’s also a little like Snow White. The animals just flock to her. I don’t know what it is.
Like so. This guy was super interested in her.
Sassy-pants posing in front of the ‘biiiiig water’. And the whole class sitting down for a minute.
It was such a fun two weeks down there, I miss it already!! But we are home now and have spent no time getting back into the swing of things – we went to the pool last week with Lisa, Row Row and baby Brecken. Henry put his game face on for the ladies 😉
And just practicing their cute.
Pool time outside in the back yard. Everyone gets in on the fun, including Stout.
And last, but not least, the new house! It’s coming along so fast, I can hardly believe it! The kitchen. I cannot wait for this kitchen. Cabinet space galore. And the counters. I love them. More than one should love counters. And the floors! Not much longer now!
Last, but not least, I was sent a lovely package of socks to try from Kushyfoot, and considering my recent record of not posting frequently, I wanted to go ahead and let you know that these socks are great!
They also included white athletic socks which I don’t have a picture of because I wore them and they are in the giant laundry pile I have to get through. I was a little worried that they’d slip down in my shoes because of how low profile they are but they stayed in place wonderfully, and if you are one who doesn’t like to see your socks above your tennis shoes, these are your socks. Couldn’t see them at all!
The ultra-low cut foot covers are just that, ultra low. Again, I was worried these would slip off, but they stayed in place nicely. These would be AMAZING for heels because they have padding on the ball of the foot (pictured above) that is super cushy and comfy. They also come in lace styles and plenty of colors – very cute options.
Someone took an instant liking to the yoga socks with the grippies. I typically am not a huge fan of the split toe thing, but these were pretty comfortable. I don’t really have anything to do with them since I don’t really do yoga or Barre, but I’ll keep them on hand for the chance I do any of those things
I hope to be back to the blog in the next week or two, although we are closing in on our move date so who knows what will happen between then and now. I imagine I’ll get another post up though
I hope everyone is having a phenomenal summer! <3
