I love the Fourth of July and there’s nothing better than watching fireworks on the beach.
After an early dinner, we went back out to the beach so we could watch the fireworks at the pier.
When the first really big one went off, he took off running toward them saying, “I gotta’ go see those lights!”
Here are a few of my favorites. I obviously needed a tripod, but I still think these turned out beautifully.

|New Swimming Trunks

|Pizza at Pappa Rocco’s|
|Graham Cracker Snack|
|Ice Cream at Scoops|
|Really Cool Sand Castle

And in case you’re curious, I opted out of the maternity bathing suit and sported a bikini instead. I was brave enough to wear it on the beach (spending most of my time under the tent), but not brave enough to post pictures on the internet. 🙂
Last Saturday, we were able to sneak off to the beach for a few days to spend some time relaxing and enjoying time with family. We left early Saturday morning for Gulf Shores, Alabama, and made it back home Wednesday afternoon.
Alston was the best little road-trip buddy we could have asked for. He watched his movies and sang songs and napped during the 4 hour drive.
Mammy saw a onesie that said “I’m the favorite” and quickly decided she shouldn’t buy it for baby brother.
In other news, I realized I’ve been so busy posting house projects that I haven’t shared a recent picture of our favorite little guy. Don’t worry, we haven’t been neglecting him or anything. He’s been having lots of fun while we’ve been in project/renovation mode. (He enjoys painting and
helping dragging toys around while we work. One of us is usually playing with him while the other is working.)
Last night, we had our favorite little friend, Ava Reese, over for a playdate. Here’s what two 2-1/2-year-olds can do to an already disastrous room.

Needless to say, I’ll be spending most of my weekend cleaning house before we’re off to the beach next weekend. Its not just his room that looks terrible. Its pretty much the whole house.
Here he is this morning. I thought he looked super handsome and decided to take some pictures before we walked into school. (As much as I tell him that he’s handsome, he’s going to have a serious ego if I don’t tone it down a notch.)
For her gift, I made a custom silhouette of Alston.
After I created the silhouette, I printed a 5×7 of the image on cardstock and put it in this gorgeous frame I found at Home Goods.
