A lot of things have happened since our Hawaii trip!


First, Sophie turned 2!! We celebrated with a party at our home with a Curious George theme. She loves that little monkey! 🙂 She is walking, talking, and all over just a happy toddler tornado.

Right around Sophie’s birthday we were super excited to announce that she is going to be a BIG SISTER!! We’re expecting twin baby girls late this fall! I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant, feeling very large and uncomfortable, but enjoying kicks and looking forward to their arrival.

In July, we took an amazing summer trip to Bermuda! The water was amazing for floating in, so clear and blue and warm! We explored the island, and really enjoyed watching sunsets over the water from right outside the door to our room, it was beautiful! We got to watch fireworks over the water too, which was pretty fun!

This summer has been full of all the wonderful summer things that make great memories. We went camping. We’ve been to the beach, and gone hiking and took our kayak out. We’ve seen waterfalls, wildlife, and flowers. We went to fairs and took walks around different towns. We’ve shared ice cream, root beer floats, watermelon, hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, and S’MORES!!! We’ve had campfires outdoors, tackled gardening and yard work, and watched our flowers grow. We visited my family for a mini-family reunion in NC and got to see my parents new house (although it wasn’t quite finished), played mini golf, took Sophie to splash parks, and soaked up the sun. Basically, all the things that you want to do in a summer, we’ve done! So, all in all pretty fantastic.

We have lots of great things coming up too! We’ll be celebrating the start of fall with a back to school party in september, in October we hope to meet our new family members, and then the holidays will be here! 2014 has turned out to be a pretty amazing year 🙂
