Harper's Ballet, Take 2!

Harper is in a summer ballet session.  I was worried because let's face it, last spring was sort of a disaster.  Harper preferred to breakdance (poor, sweet Ms Kelly was so patient)!  Remember this?

Harper prefers to rock out to Pharrell...

but this year, she is finally doing so much better.

And by the way, there is nothing sweeter than a room full of 4 year olds, all dressed in pink at the bar, doing their ballet.

Tea Party

It's been raining so much lately so I've been getting a little creative with our summer fun. But who knew a good old fashioned tea party would make the girls squeal like I've handed them the moon? We had lunch on a blanket in the kitchen with a tea set. They were charmed!

Each girl chose a doll to attend and we ate finger sandwiches (PB and J)
and peaches, and drank tea (um, water). 

Cheers, dawwling!

We had such a fun 4th of July this year!  It is fun every year, but the girls are getting older and are able to enjoy more of it.

The night before, we went out on the Severn for some dinner and July 3rd fireworks.  The girls had a blast staying up WAY past their bedtime and watching fireworks for the very first time.

The next day, Maureen and the kids came over to watch the parade with us.  We loaded everyone up and headed down the B&A trail towards the town square.  Audrey and Kate rode in the wagon and Harper and Luke rode scooters.

The parade was HOT but fun!  The girls had so much fun sitting on the curb, waving their flags, and eating ice cream.  Harper even had a sweet moment with Luke.

After the parade we had lunch at home, baths, and nap time.  That evening we went to Naomi's 2nd birthday party at her grandparents' pool.  We all swam for 4 hours, had a great cookout, and ate lots of cake.

We made it home around 9, just in time for the kids to go to bed!  They were so tired that they slept right through all of the fireworks going off in the neighborhood.  Happy 4th!
