An Evening in the Backyard

These were taken on our first evening in the backyard this summer. The days have been strangely cold—summer’s been off to a super slow start. It was nice to get out, breathe in some fresh air, and chill out back before the kids went down for bed. I’m looking forward to more quiet, warm evenings like this.

A Family Outing // Andrews' Scenic Acres

It’s been a while since we’ve had a weekend to ourselves, just the 4 of us. This was the perfect place to spend time together. Margot’s got a love for picking flowers whenever she’s out, so it was the flower fields for picking that attracted us to Andrews’ Scenic Acres. We loved it—it was spacious, clean, beautiful and super kid-friendly. We picked ourselves a beautiful bouquet of flowers, walked through corn fields, chilled with chickens and went on a tractor ride. The weather is just starting to cool down, so it was nice to get both kids out in that fresh, crisp air to take in the sights and run around. We left with a pumpkin pie, pecan tarts, apples and 2 cones of their homemade strawberry and blueberry ice cream. I’m already looking forward to visiting again!

Easter 2018

We hid eggs throughout the house the night before so Margot could wake up to her first Easter egg hunt. The excitement and joy it brought her is the stuff I live for. We later headed out to our cousins' place for some food, cake, crafts and some much needed family time. It was a beautiful Easter Sunday!

It was a small little chapel that was reached by climbing a narrow stone spiral staircase. It's one of the world's most extensive collections of stained glass and was definitely a sight to see.
