4th of July Weekend

We had an action packed four days for the 4th of July weekend. We started off on Friday with getting the kids early from school and heading over to the Crystal Lake Lakeside Fest. Brooke was a BIG fan of the carousel.

I had been wanting to get the kids a playhouse forever and finally pulled the trigger. So far, they LOVE it. 

That night we headed to the Cary fireworks with some of our Goddard favorites!

Me and Brooke.... and my brother was trying to give me bunny ears which is why it looks like I have something weird growing out of my head!

The next day we woke up to drive up to Fontana Beach (Lake Geneva) to have a beach day!

Then we headed to Pier 290 and played some games and watched the boats

On Sunday we setup the pool and the kids swam and played all day.

June Roundup

Somehow I blinked and the month of June flashed by. Here is how we spent most of June.

We celebrated Karyn's birthday at Shakou in Barrington with all of our favorite Goddard parents.

We hung out at Grandma and Grandad's house with Miss McKenna

We went to Three Oaks beach for after school swims

We celebrated Father's Day/ Louis and I's 7 year anniversary with mini golf

Louis and I's annual anniversary picture. I have been taking a picture of us every year on our anniversary since we have been married. I am so glad we have this little fun tradition. It is fun to watch us grow old together!

We hung out at the park in our PJ's

We even squeezed in a Kramer/Malic date

And we signed up for the summer reading program and someone seems to be a fan!

We even had a very special dinner with Ms. Hildebrandt at Tracks in Cary. We are sure going to miss her when Blake is in elementary school, but luckily for us we still have Brooke to go in her class!!
