sweet summertime.

Summer is in full swing around here!!! 

A few weeks ago, we got to experience the Des Moines Farmer's Market and it was so much fun!!! 
There were people everywhere but it was a good change of pace from our typical Saturday routine. 
Can't wait to go again. Fresh flowers, fresh and locally grown produce, treats and coffee <3

Peonies are my most favorite flower. They are just so full and luscious and smell amazing. 

Little miss picked me some fresh flowers too and although hers look a little like weeds, very pretty weeds at that (haha) they are very near and dear to my heart! 

She sure knows how to get her sunbathing on at such an early age! 
However, she will grow up knowing the importance of sunscreen and taking care of her skin!!!

Daddy's golf caddy companion. 

Visits from Granny and Grampy (not pictured) are always a treat. 
We sure do love them. 

Looking mighty fine in her traditional Mexican dress from Nani. 

Sidewalk chalk castles for the princess. 

28. Sounds so old! But I had an amazing birthday and had a nice dinner out with these two loves of mine. 

pure cupcake joy!!! 

Megan and Michelle, best cousins ever sent B her first water sprinkler. 
And she loves it!

sweet sleep!

Our bedtime routine goes a little like this on most nights...
After dinner, it's bath-time for B. 
Then we brush teeth. 
From here it's story-time and then prayers. 
Most nights she asks for some extra snuggles and after the extra snuggles she typically drifts into a sweet sleep. 
Well...this night was different, when I went to go in and check on the little miss, I opened the door to a wide-eyed little girl who had every pair of shoes she owned in bed with her. 

... this girl!

time for a visit

It's always a good time when family comes to visit! 

Picking up Nani, Uncle Clay and Kailyn from the airport sure was fun. 
The girls ran up to give each other big hugs, then they ran around
the airport holding hands for the remainder of the time. 
Lots of "ooo's" and "awww's" from passersby. 

Waiting to be seated for dinner. 
Blaykleigh is such a ham! 

 Hot summer afternoons spent pool side. 

Nani and her grandgirls.
