uncle zac

^^ Uncle Zac has been in town and Ellie couldn’t be happier having her best bud here. ^^

chicken salad

^^ Grilled chicken salads on hot summer days. Totally hits the spot! ^^

family time

^^ Park days with Gramma and Zac. Or as Ellie likes to say “Me-ma and Zaaaaaac” ^^

sunday baking

^^ Sunday baking started out looking like this and ended up with Ellie (and my kitchen!) covered head to toe in flour. It was worth it, this girl was entertained for HOURS! ^^

blog friendsellie and ryan

^^ Karina and Ryan, our blog-turned-real-life-friends came to town again, so we had to get together and let those kiddos play. They had a blast running around the playroom and splash pad, while their mama’s chatted away. ^^

brian zurcher

^^ With family/free babysitters in town, I’ve had a lot more dates with my favorite guy. The best! ^^


^^ Could this summer get any better? And I wish this girl would stop looking so grown up! ^^
