six.

Georgia turned 6 last week! We celebrated with friends and family at a local horse ranch called Bit of Hope Ranch.  What a special place it is! It was such a fun party and honestly it was one of the easiest parties I have thrown! The ranch provided most everything. The kids rode horses, painted, decorated bandanas and even had a water gun fight. What a hot, but super fun day it was to celebrate our sweet July baby.  



Georgia and I made necklaces for all of her girlfriends. A Pinterest find of course! 




Kudos to the Ranch host - Mr. Alan (aka my best friend's dad)

our garden grew

One of many fond childhood memories that I have, is of our little backyard garden. Georgia asked us several times if she could have a garden so we decided to give it a try this year. It truly has been a fun little project and both kids have looked forward to watering and checking on the garden each day. Back in April, Paul built a 2X6 raised garden bed. We planted tomatoes (beef steak and big beef), carrots, bib lettuce, rosemary and parsely. We were complete amateurs at gardening, but everything grew really well. I think our rainy June  definitely helped. We have enjoyed making salads and lettuce wraps with our lettuce, flavoring foods with our herbs and eating our tomatoes. 


Day 1


First tomato sighting





One of our summer bucket list items was a lemonade and produce stand. We have already made some sweet summer memories with our little garden that grew!

put a flag in it

July 4th is probably my favorite holiday! I think it is one of the easiest holidays to decorate for too. It is simple really...just put a flag in it! It makes any vase or planter festive for the occasion! Enjoy your July 4th celebrations. God bless the USA!

never go out of style



 I hope you are enjoying your summer so far. I just love this list of things that should never go out of style! A few that stand out to me are letter writing, cursive and dressing up! Stay classy folks! Happy weekend!

three-ooo

We celebrated Graham's 3rd birthday last Saturday. He really loves fire trucks so I asked the fire department to come to the house to celebrate with us. They were so great and even brought Sparky the Fire Dog! We had a casual, but super fun cookout to celebrate the big Three-ooo!
