With summer time in full swing here in Texas we spend SO much time outside and I finally decided we needed to stock up on outdoor gear for the kiddos. We spend so many lunches, play dates, parties, and dinners outside that it was time to be prepared. We have owned a bounce house (thanks to my incredible parents) for a few years now and I totally believe a small one with little toddlers is an incredible must have. We bust that thing out every chance we have:) We had a perfect pool last year as seen here but the hubs could not find it any where so I snatched this one up last minute at Target and it is perfect for a toddler and smaller little ones…Cayson and Isabella love it. This toddler table has already been a life saver…I love that it folds up flat for easy storage and travel. I made a trip to Ikea recently to grab some step stools and found these outdoor chair treasures and this perfect outdoor high chair that we had to have. This high chair is perfection-cheap, easy to clean and perfect for outdoors. I lugged our nice one outside several times and knew we needed a better solution so insert outdoor high char. I honestly wish I would have purchased more than one…I may be back to grab more:)
Having a kid friendly back yard and so called "toddler oasis" is a must in this Texas heat!
This weekend we threw a "Surprise" Perfect Pair themed family shower for one of my besties. It was a surprise at least up to 2 hours before haha…it all turned out perfect. We all talked about later what a special evening it was…these girls have been my friends since high school and its been truly incredible to watch us all stay so close and watch our families grow through lots of trials, joys and heart aches. SO incredibly thankful for these friendships. These sweet twins coming in the next 6 weeks….eek can't believe it is so close, are such little miracles and we just can't wait to meet them. Jaimee is crazy (Jen and I think so anyways) and doesn't know the gender so we took a little vote…I'm still on the fence but I voted boys:) We do know they are identical so I have a 50/50 shot which is better than just a 25% chance of being right:) I didn't take near enough photos and didn't even have a chance to actually grab my camera…thats what happens with two sweet babies and staying busy...
The table set up
Absolutely adore the names…can't wait to find out!! I think the vote was heavier at the end of the night for girls...
Delicious fajitas the hubs whipped up…so thankful for a partner who loves to host as much as me:)
This past week was my birthday week…I usually love to celebrate birthday month or week, but now that I have two kiddos of my own its so true that they become such the priority that my birthday almost came and went without me feeling the need to celebrate. A simple pool day with friends, pedicure and dinner date with the hubs was perfection…we also hosted a surprise shower Saturday for a sweet friend…well we pulled it off until 2 hours before but hey close enough;)
Ready for swim lessons!
