Yesterday was a super typical summer day for us. I worked on Slightly Askew stuff in the morning, Dave went in to work around 9:00 and I put GG down for a nap. She was quiet for about 20 minutes, but then she decided that she didn't want to be in there by herself anymore. I went in once to put her pacis back in her bed and when she kept crying I told Mason that he was allowed to go in there and talk to her (which normally cheers her up). She was REALLY mad and was screaming REALLY loud and all of a sudden I hears Mason crying and when I went in there I found this....
... he told me that Griffin's screaming scared him. :) hahaha He was genuinely upset. Poor little man!!!
Since a morning nap wasn't happening, we just played and did a few chores and then got ready to meet some friends at the pool.
We got to the pool and the boys were pretty much instantly in the water, but Griffin wanted to play a round of tetherball.
One of my sweet former students and her boyfriend met us at the pool and my kiddos ATE IT UP!
Sheaffer and I showed up to the pool wearing the exact same coverup and earrings. FABULOUS minds think alike.... but unfortunately our fabulous minds didn't remember to take a picture together. So we took selfies : )
Check out my besties rockin' the "yes mom" :) My kiddos and I had already left, but I just LOVE that my girlfriends are so much fun!
When we got home from the pool everyone got cleaned up...
... and dressed up :)
When Griffin got up from her nap the boys climbed in the crib with her.... and no.... she does not have a boppy pillow in there on the regular.... they threw it in there :)
Please make sure that you note Mason's smirk and that he is standing on his big brother. hahaha
WHEN did this boy get so big?!?!?! and so stinkin' handsome?!?!?!
Earlier in the morning I had been looking through old pics and came across this one from exactly four years ago. It seems like yesterday that he was taking swimming lessons with Kensington!!!
When I posted the pic of Luke and I on IG last night several of you asked about my denim vest... mine is by Romeo and Juliet Couture and came with a CRAZY price tag (think $200+), but I picked it up at Nordstrom Rack for a steal. I found a really cute, distressed option that you can find HERE. I also had a couple of y'all ask about how I'm going to wear the vest... so I'll put together a post for y'all next week! I'm really excited about the vest, despite my husband asking me if I had joined an '80s cover band :) hahaha
But he was seriously exhausted.
Mason fell asleep on the 3-minute ride home and was so zonked out I was able to carry him to his bed, pull off his shoes and tuck him in without him waking up.
Today they boys are having some friends over in the morning and Griffin is going on her first play date! :)
