we had the whole place to ourselves

if i'm not in my backyard, chances are you can find me at the beach. cloudy days or sunny days it's a favorite of mine for sure. and luckily luke loves it as much as i do. when we thought we were moving to utah, one of the things that put a giant pit in my stomach was the thought of leaving our beaches. i realize they too have beaches, but they don't have the sound like we do. and we live just 5 minutes from the lake and so i made up my mind- even more so than it had ever been made- that i was going to make a point to enjoy the water fully and to not take it for granted.

summer nights

like all of you i'm sure, we have been taking advantage of our summer nights. we keep it simple. usually just beer, our bbq, and us. clothes are optional for the boys. the PNW has been treating us real nice lately with 80 degree temps.

sam, 10 months

my favorite redhead is crawling like a mad man, pulling himself up and starting to navigate his way around furniture. loves when we hold his hands to walk. still takes 2 naps. sleeps ok. not awesome. always wakes up around 4, then goes back down. i am almost done with breastfeeding completely. i started supplementing with formula about a month ago, and realized i was pretty much done with breastfeeding. i just do it for when he needs comfort now. sam still has 4 teeth up and 4 teeth down. is a total love bug. a happy guy. really loves playing with his brother's match box cars. loves when luke jumps up and down.

4th of july

this year it was just us. we didn't go to a parade. we didn't meet up with friends or my mom. it was just us. luke and bennett went and got fireworks the day of  and later that evening we lit them off in our driveway. luke loved it.

stuck in a tent

spent last week in a tent with my family. loved it. i think i loved it more than anybody else, but whatevs. it's all a part of making memories. bennett and i met up with friends in eastern oregon for a wedding (without kids) over the weekend so it feels like i've been on vacation forever. oh, and the 4th was somewhere in there too.

sugar and spice

i know, that's suppose to be for little girls, but luke is sugary sweet and super spicy too. that's why he totally owns me. and asleep? i could stare at him all day long.
