I've taken quite the blog break which I've felt so guilty about because I love taking this time just for me, but the last couple of weeks have just been busy. Some fun, some just day to day business, some big stuff to share soon...and then at the end of the day, I just want to sit on the couch and veg. My hat goes off to all those serious blogger mom's who seem to have the time for it all. Here are a few highlights from the last couple of weeks!
We were visited by our new cousins for a few weeks and had so much fun getting reacquainted. Luke and Olivia are just the sweetest kids. Lauren and Olivia were instant best friends when they met in December and were inseparable during this visit as well.
Fish Fly Festival
If you live in Southeastern Michigan (even parts of Ohio, I'm told) than you know what a fish fly is. A gross looking flying bug that appears toward the end of June, appearing from the lake and in droves during the night hours. Apparently, there is a festival named in its honor. We went.
A typical carnival, but such a fun night with the family! There were rides, people watching, and glitter tattoos:)Eight Year Anniversary
We weren't able to be together on our actual anniversary and with our special guests visiting we celebrated early. Billy planned a special night out for us. We enjoyed an al fresco dinner and our first table side caesar salad. We then ventured to another venue for dessert and ended our night at a local tiki bar! Happy Eight Year Anniversary!!
Lauren hadn't seen a real fireworks show since she was a baby, and Wills had never seen one. We joined my mom and her friends last weekend for a spectacular fireworks display on the lake. Emma joined us and the kids had a blast. My actual fireworks pics came out horribly, but Jocelyn grabbed this cute one before it got dark. If we are in town next year, this is a summer must!
