We are loving us some summer.
There's nothing like the pace of summer.
One morning, we met up with some other mamas and babies for fun on the farm, including a ride in the ranger. Emma and Sophie hopped right in and off they went.
Summer has begun.
We've traded heavy casseroles of pastas and beef for throwing chicken and veggies on the grill, calling all who are hungry to the table, polished off with ice cream or popsicles.
One favorite and super easy recipe, semi-homemade pizza, our Chicken and Herb Pizza.
Chicken and Herb Pizza
1 frozen cheese pizza
2 garlic cloves, minced
handful of herbs (whatever you fancy...we used oregano, basil, and parsley)
1 cooked chicken breast, diced (we use Rotisserie chicken from Target)
- preheat oven
- ask little hands to sprinkle all ingredients
- bake according to box directions
And try not to eat the whole thing by yourself.
The highlight so far, a little surprise for the girls. By no means a need but certainly a want, we've been pricing and hunting for a swing set for the girls. Some friends were looking for someone to buy theirs. So the hubs made a few trips to Lowe's for supplies, called a few friends, bought a box of donuts and this weekend, we had ourselves Christmas in June.
Since Bunny isn't quite into surprises just yet, she got a sneak peek and first dibs on the slide.
Is this ours?
The season we struggled to get pregnant with Emma Rose, somewhere deep in my heart this seed of today was planted.
We knew this day was a stake in the ground for this family, a gift yielding simple moments together to the soundtrack of laughter and smells of peanut butter and sunscreen.
And it's only the beginning.
All from a little surprise.
