I woke up this morning and realized it's July. Sometimes the every day loop of raising babies and being on our own schedule makes for losing track of days, dates, and in this case, months. And that's always a good thing.
It's July, good groceries that means a lot around here. Top on the list, that means Bella Jane comes next month, next month. We can hardly stand it. Preparations, trips to Babysrus, and the much anticipated arrival of our sweet one.
Meanwhile, it's toasty around these parts. So little ones happily cope with trips outside to play in their jammies and make their way inside to cool off for games of Candy Land.
We don't really follow the rules, it's much more fun to decide who we want to be and where we want to live. The cards are simply a suggestion.
We drove to a little town close by for some pizza and infamous snow cones.
We love being home. Sophie still asks for home.

After your belly is full, trickle outside and watch their imaginations run wild.
The holiday to come is bringing the hubs home. Fireworks with friends are lined up, more swimming and backyard meals, a dip into our bucket list for an adventure to the peach orchard. July has much in store for us.
July is here.
Happy July to all!
