A Fun filled Day



Things have really cranked into overdrive here and we've been busy. We are still taking pictures, but I haven't had the time to get Alan's off of his camera or write a post. So, I'm trying something new and going to try posting from my phone from time to time. We've been doing some fun stuff so hopefully this week I'll get some more posts up from the past couple of weeks!  Today was easy since I took all of the pictures!

Caroline and I went blueberry picking for the first time ever. We did pretty good for beginners and I'm sure we'll go back before the season is over! When Daddy came home we hit downtown Kennebunk for the craft fair and picked up some fresh corn. Grabbed a bite to eat and headed to the beach for some playground fun. Caroline met a friend there, an older 5 year old, who quickly became her best friend :) We had a lot of fun watching her and seeing just how fast she is growing up!

Week in Pictures

This past week we dealt with what is our usual now, very high temperatures and heavy rain. Either way, we were indoors a lot again. As always, we kept busy at home and running errands, etc. Caroline had her allergist appointment that included a peanut challenge and she did well so we will progress with that and I had my 20 week ultrasound. Caroline and Alan both came to that so she got to see her big brother, or more importantly play with all of the cool stuff at the office! We ended the weekend off with an ice cream cone at Big Daddy's. Our table, new year! It's amazing to think she had her first taste of ice cream there three years ago!



 Always happy in the kitchen


Especially when it's to make marshmallows!


 Her doctor toys were in her playhouse and it was raining, 
so she improvised and called this her first aid kit
 

 A break in the rain for bubbles!

A Weekend at Home

After a busy week, we decided to stay home for the weekend and keep things quiet. Granted, exhaustion and some altered sleep routines helped that decision :) With this hot weather we've been having, it was good to simply relax. After a slow start on Saturday, we had some fun in the pool and then headed to Hot Diggity Dog for some hot dogs. Came back for a nap and then headed out to do a few things, which included Dairy Queen for dinner and came home for a sandwich for dessert. Of course this was followed by more pool time!
Sunday was pretty much the same, except we headed to the marina for some S'mores and then to bed for a good nights sleep!


 Being extra lovey with Daddy


 Happy to have her hair in a clip like Mommy

Happy 4th of July!

I'm a few days late getting these pictures up but I wanted to combine pictures from all of the different cameras! We had a wonderful 4th of July this year. We started the day with some relaxing at home. Playing in the water table and the pool. Caroline and Daddy took a quick trip to Target to pick up some more fun pool toys. We had an easy morning in hopes that Caroline would be able to stay up and watch her first fireworks show! After her nap, we packed up the coolers and headed to the marina for a BBQ. First, we did a little fishing, where Caroline caught 2 mackerel on her first try. She caught another two and then we headed back to the marina to cook some dinner. After dinner we loaded up on a friend's boat and set off to watch the fireworks from the water. The night was gorgeous. No wind and the ocean was nice and calm. The fireworks show was wonderful and watching it from the water was amazing! Caroline was a trooper and loved it! We made it home and put her to bed at 10:30, way past her bedtime, but she was full of life the next morning telling me all about the previous night :)




She came downstairs like this :P


Some outside fun!


Relaxing with Daddy



Reeling in her fish!





Two thumbs up she says since she caught two fish!



Couldn't ask for a more gorgeous night!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Last Tuesday, July 2nd, was Daddy's birthday. The night before Caroline gave Alan a big hug and said, "Goodnight Birthday Boy!" We about died laughing. The next day, while Daddy worked, we made artwork for him, got cards ready, and baked his cake. The cake didn't turn out so well because of the extreme temperatures and humidity we had, but it still tasted good! We went to The Steakhouse with Nanny & Grampy and came back for dessert. We think Daddy had a good birthday :) We love you Daddy!


 She had to wear her tutu the whole day in honor of Daddy :)


 This was a VERY special painting for Daddy!


 Daddy's favorite: Strawberry, chocolate, and whipped cream!


The best shot! She was in major dancing mode!

A Weekend at Home

This past weekend we decided to stay home and relax. Get a few projects done around the house and play outside in between rain storms. We accomplished a lot and we had a lot of fun doing it!
