From the Cutting Room Floor: Summer Edition

As ready as we are for fall and all that comes with it, saying farewell to summer 2016 is definitely bittersweet.  The past few months have been so good, I never want to forget the memories we have made and how we have watched our precious girls grow all too quickly, but in the best way possible.  We have spent most of our days with some sort of water activity, even if we had to get creative in our backyard to do it, and ate more popsicles than we could count.  Waverly & Avalon got closer than ever, quite literally at moments, and their ever evolving sisterhood continues to be something I will always cherish.  We wore bathing suits more than clothes, and bare feet more than shoes.  Waverly learned to go under water and Avalon learned to walk.  Then run. 🙂  We did our weekly dance class, the waterpark at least twice a week, and counted down the moment until daddy came home every single day.  We had tantrums and tears, sometimes from all of us, and then laughs to make up for it ten times over.

Sharing some pictures that I never shared here on the blog, looking at these just makes my heart all kinds of full.  I laughed this weekend when both girls slept until 7:15 and my husband said, “doesn’t it feel good to sleep in?”.  Yes, quarter after seven is considered sleeping in these days and these little ladies are alllll worth it.  I can never say it enough, these are the days, my friends!

Wishing you and yours a very happy Monday!

    Oh, they are just too cute for words. I can't get over what an amazing big sister Waverly is and just how much they adore each other. These photos just kill me. I think Mim needs a little sister. 😉
