Although the very first picture is a table full of cute and crazy girls, we had a ton of boys at the party too to celebrate our boys turning FIVE.  We had so much fun bringing in the WHOLE HAND birthday!  We rented an awesome water slide bounce house combo, and of course, had the lake for the kids to swim in too.  They all had a blast and it was chaos, but the boys definitely LIVED THEIR BEST LIVES that day!  Prepare for a full on post of party pics!

These are the days.

Goodness gracious, I LOVE summer.  I talk it to death every year, but it is especially important to me during this season of life where the school year brings homework/schedules/strict bed times/extra curricular craziness- I appreciate the LAZY days of summer EVEN MORE.

We celebrated by sneaking off to Marco Island, Florida for a few days and it was so perfect.  The weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed it just being the two of us.  We relaxed a lot, but also got in some adventure time for my non beach loving husband.  We m…
