Our Anniversary Weekend

Thank you to everyone for your anniversary wishes on my IG over the weekend!!  This year just seemed bigger than any other one yet, five years somehow sounds so official & it's crazy to look back on everything that has happened since then.  Pretty much like parenthood, our wedding day seems like it was forever ago and like it was yesterday, all at the same time.

The girls spent the day with my parents and then the night with my in-laws. Waverly gets so excited for things like these & we have learned the hard way not to tell her until minutes before she leaves. Otherwise she will keep asking us over and over when it is time to go (apparently patience is not a three-year old virtue).  Her beaming happiness to leave us for the night is both sad and the best reminder that Avalon's current "clingy to only mom" phase is certainly short-lived. ;)


The hubs & I had the best day, which included buying a new couch (#adulthood) and both lunch and dinner out without high chairs or sippy cups.  It was glorious, absolutely glorious, and by Sunday morning, we were more than ready to get back to our babies.  So funny how just one day can leave you feeling so refreshed and rejuvenated, we were over the moon excited to reunite with our sweet girls.  We picked them up and headed peach-picking, which was so, so much fun!!!  Activities like these are just my favorite ever, if you have one near you, it's definitely worth the trip.

And just like that, we are halfway to another weekend!  Hope you are all having a great week!

  6. Even at six years old we still wait to tell Mason about some plans! He gets way too excited and his ADHD goes into overdrive! I love that Waverly loves little adventures like that. Does it make it easier or harder for you to leave her? I agree, even just an hour of alone time can refresh you and recharge you! I am so glad y’all had a great day/night! And Sunday sounds pretty perfect! Peach picking sounds like a blast, plus you got the cutest photos of your little ladies.

  7. Man, I wish we could pick peaches like that! That is seriously amazing.

    And yeah- Abigail will be six later this year and I still don't tell her anything until right before we leave :p even then, sometimes I wait until we drive up and I make sure it's officially open/happening ha!
