Don't Say It

Untitled

Frozen banana "cheers" to summer! 

I'm dying here. 

Sch**l starts in 3 days.

I can't even say it. 

We are headed to the mountains for one final adventure. 

Camping, hiking, high altitudes, wildlife, smores, and my little family snuggled together for a night - just as it should be. 

We truly have had the Best. Summer. Ever.

Gardiner Chalk Art Festival 2014

A few weeks ago as a cool enough morning presented itself on a free day we decided it was time to do our own little chalk art festival on our driveway.

Each girl got a square of her own and we started just after breakfast. Little Rosie didn't waste much time busting out her abstract piece.

Roo made a colorful pinwheel design recruiting others to help her fill in the sections as her little arms tired out.

I created a fishbowl (#chacotan)

Ava did a fabulous job on her exotic bird with only a little help from me here and there.

And GM went for size and made a giant flower in a vase (that you can dive into).

We battled the rain all day and chatted with neighbors as they went by walking their dogs or pushing their babies in strollers.

And we got really dirty.

REALLY dirty.

As everyone was finishing up I commissioned the older girls to help with a treasure box for my fish.

They have already been talking about what they want to do next year and how they want to invite friends - honestly I'm just as excited.

Summer Girl

GM7

Tomorrow our sweet MaeMae will turn 7 years old.


Seven.

GM1

I am so excited for her.

Every year this girl just gets better and better. 

GM5

She is fun and fearless.

Kind and nurturing.


GM3

When she laughs you laugh too. 

A loyal friend. 

Helpful and bold. 


GM8

I can't wait to see the woman she will become.

Because this girl…she will no doubt move mountains.
