I don’t know about you, but I’m rather excited that the weekend is here. Time to break out the pool and water toys, because it has been a scorcher around here. We’ve only been able to play outside in short increments before Quinn demands that we go inside so she can stand over the air conditioning vents (grinning from ear-to-ear, btw) 😎
Aside from trying to stay out of the hotness, we’ve been admiring the roses from our garden, organizing the pantry (that was a necessity after Quinn pulled every. last. thing. out of the cupboard), playing, dancing, singing, and making our summer bucket list.
For the weekend, we’ll be splashing in the pool, eating all of the meat at a BBQ, and celebrating Father’s Day! I’m beyond grateful for my dad and Josh’s dad, they have been wonderful teachers, leaders, and role models for me and Josh. And of course, I am incredibly thankful every day for Josh; seeing the love he and Quinn have for one another brings me so much joy. Oh, and the fact that she calls him “sweetie” is about the most precious thing in the world.

Favorite Cookies: Pool Party Cookies. Ack! THESE ARE ADORABLE!!!!
