Being Brickner : Halfway through Summer.

Halfway through Summer.

I think I probably looked forward to this summer more than any other one yet, and so far, it's living up to all the hype.  The girls are both at such fun ages, especially as Avalon gets older, and this is really the first time that their interests are a lot alike and that they can do so many of the same things.  They both love anything water-related, which is pretty funny because Avalon seemed so scared of it at first, but now she is able to go down most of the slides at the waterpark, can wade around in the water at the bay for hours, and just last week, started jumping off the diving board at the pool (which is all ironically way earlier than Waverly did all of that!).  Waverly gets so excited about it, she loves to help catch her when she comes down or put her floatie on for her, I think she will forever "baby" her no matter what age she gets.

Of course it's also so freaking nice to be off work and able to spend so much more time at home.  I will always cherish slow summer mornings and getting to make the girls a big breakfast while they watch their favorite shows, there is just something so sweet about kids in the morning time and I try to never take those moments for granted.  The girls sitter (who watches them a couple days during the week during the year) has also been taking them for a few hours each Monday, just to give me some time to myself and it's been GLORIOUS.  I really never take time for myself and even though I spend most of it running errands solo or doing some long-awaited projects around the house, it's amazing how refreshed and rejuvenated I feel afterwards.

And in case you just came for pictures. :)


Waverly's freckles coming through from the sun and Avalon's tan skin (that she totally gets from her daddy) --things I never want to forget.  Love these summer girls so much!!!!  Hope your season is off to a great start and wishing you the happiest days ahead! XO

  3. How nice that you have a babysitter come once a week so you can get stuff done! And goodness sakes, the girls are just the sweetest! I can't believe Avalon goes down the slide at the water park - Oliver is terrified of even just getting into the pool with me or by himself in our little one. haha. I'm so glad you're enjoying your summer with the girls.

  4. Oh my goodness, they're getting so big! I love summer mornings here, too. I can't believe we're halfway through the summer. I was thinking of all the fun fall stuff I love today, and I had to remind myself to slow down. I need to savor these beach days <3
