Sweet summertime

It's Monday morning, and we're relaxing after a busy weekend! I totally blanked on posting on Friday. My aunt and uncle were driving through from Connecticut to Nebraska, and we were having the best time with them in their short visit! Right now, the boys are finishing up watching one of their shows, and I wanted to write a short and sweet post to update on what we've been up to!

Summer birthday parties are so much fun. My friend Ashley threw her son Emerson an amazing camping party out in the State Park. N & E had a great time!

The cutest little fox cupcakes :)

Eating a s'more pop and tossing rocks into the creek.

Gotta love dirt pudding cups and gummy worms!

Ashley made a campfire handprint with Nolan. It was such a well-planned out party. Loved it!

I found an old deep-dish pizza pan in my mom's garage, and I tried my hand at Chicago style pizza for the first time. It turned out really well, and I can't wait to work on perfecting the recipe! I am always so homesick for Chicago pizza, and it will be amazing if I can actually make it at home.

We've had LOTS of park dates with friends.

And we've spent some rainy mornings downtown at the library. 

Mormor and Papa Don bought a swingset for their backyard, and Steve helped put it together.

The boys LOVE it!! It's the perfect size for them.

Saturday morning, we headed to Lowe's to build Captain America. The Build and Grow Workshop is doing another Avengers series this summer, and we're excited to collect them all :)

We spent Saturday night and Sunday morning at our church's park out in the country. We ate watermelon and potluck food, sang worship songs, played on the playground, and enjoyed the sunshine.


Hope your weekend was wonderful!

Today is Steve and my 7th Anniversary, so we're looking forward to going out to dinner just the two of us :)


  1. The party looks very thought out. Cute details! Looks like you guys are having some nice summer weather. It rained all weekend here in Dallas!

  2. Sounds like a fun weekend! Happy Happy Anniversary to you and Steve! Have a great "adult" date!


    Be sure to blog it when you perfect it, mmkay??

    And hey! We're blue shorts twins now! Awesome!


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
