family days / terrific trips

Whelp, it’s July. You know, THE VERY MONTH MY BOY WAS BORN A YEAR AGO [what. the. HOW.] and we moved into our little house TWO years ago! and I’m feeling all sorts of joyful to be living in this little town with my little family. We just got back from my cousins houseboat and then had Greg’s friends in town for a couple days, sooo playing catchup while everyone sleeps :) A few pictures below. as is customary ;)

THESE GIRLS. They are so sweet together! Cheeto faces and kisses obviously signal summer.

That girl. She has my heart.

Remember how last time, he was in my belly?!

BEST auntie that can get the boy that doesn’t sleep, to sleep. in a life jacket no less!

Some of the best cousins that ever were
