Kayla – Swimsuit: Cat & Jack; Glasses: Janie & Jack (similar); Red Shorts: Baby B’Gosh; Gingham Top: Baby B’Gosh (similar); Cameron – Tank: OshKosh; Popsicle Shirt: Cat & Jack; Shorts: Cat & Jack; Shoes: Cat & Jack; Lobster Towel: Pottery Barn Kids.
It’s not even the 4th yet and we’ve been having so much fun! It is swim season and the kids could not be loving the water more. They’ve both been taking swimming lessons and are learning so fast. Kayla skipped 3 levels in her first session, we’re so proud of her. Cameron had a rough start, with lots of tears the first few classes but he has come around and is a start student at last. They both love the beach as well. Cameron loves being buried in the sand and Kayla enjoys burying him.
So many fun red, white and blue props this year, I’m in heaven. I couldn’t resist the rocket pop float. Not only does it photograph well, it’s Kayla’s favorite popsicle. The donut float is not 4th themed but I love donuts and they looked so darn cute in it together, I had to include here. The lobster towel I picked up at Pottery Barn Kids along with a cute, matching plate and cup set. Cams knows it’s his and will not let anyone else use his lobster towel.
I can’t wait to see what other fun this summer brings!
Wishing everyone a very happy and safe 4th.
PS – More pics to come including a special new addition to the family!

Kayla is very into picking out her own outfits these days. I basically have no say in what she wears anymore. It’s like my worst nightmare! She literally picks out the least matching outfits she can find everyday and then tops off the look with mismatched socks encased in two different open-toe sandals. I’m not sure if people realize she dresses herself or think I am a crazed mom of two and can’t get my act together enough to pick out matching outfits for my kid! I need to do a post on one of her every day outfits because I’m sure my description doesn’t do it justice. Luckily, she was really into her Valentine’s outfits with the sparkly heart and tutu skirt which she loves so there was no argument there. We did, however, have a shoe disagreement so I had to compromise with the white socks sticking out of her boots.
Kayla’s new favorite accessory is headbands which she likes to wear atop her favorite hairstyle, the “Elsa braid”. She had a favorite pink, shiny headband that she recently lost at a birthday party. We searched all over and couldn’t find it (most likely lost in a ball pit). She keeps asking us to call the place to ask if they’ve found it but they have not returned our calls or emails. We have no idea why one of her 12 other headbands aren’t sufficient replacements but a quick trip to target has temporarily fixed the situation.
We had a very low-key Valentine’s Day because poor Kayla got a stomach bug the day before. Poor thing was down for a couple days and even had to miss her little exchange at school. She’s much better now though!
Hope everyone had a very happy Valentine’s Day!
