Hey everyone! Now that summer is officially here I’ve found myself suddenly pretty busy with my kids and all these household things needing to be done (stupid adulthood). Which means less time for reading, which is making me a little sad. Here’s what I’ve been up to this month!
Every year on Father’s Day for the past like 11 years we have gone to a brunch at a local farm and it is absolutely my favorite meal of the entire year (yes, even more so than Thanksgiving and Christmas). It’s in an old barn that is decked out with beautiful fresh and dried flowers and has such a beautiful rustic feel. It also has the most amazing french toast with homemade bread, roasted potatoes, ham, quiche, salad, strawberry bread, and trifle. And then fresh baked pie and the most delicious strawberry shortcake for dessert!
Of course June also marked the end of the school year. We let out a little later than most areas so we’ve only been officially into summer vacation for about 10 days so far but we hope to have a good one. Trips to the zoo, beach, and our pool will fill out days. Our pool has been set up and they are already jumping in whenever possible.
June has also been the month of PURPLE! Erin is obsessed with the color. She often talks about how when she is an adult she is going to have a purple car, purple phone, and a purple house. LOL She is a big fan of the Descendants movies and has been wanting purple hair for forever so…
We also took the chance with the warmer weather to paint her room, purple. Her room was this pale, pale green from when it was used as a nursery for each kid and I was ready for it to go. And so was she. It looks so much better though a part of me is sad to see all the baby stuff go.
