Because I grew up in Southwest Michigan ~ this is what summer is supposed to be like: beach days, BBQs & beautiful flowers arranged on my kitchen table.  Flowers are quickly becoming a new hobby of mine.  I want to plant them, grow them, cut them and arrange them.

I digress...  Last week we went to the beach, we usually go in the evening with the kiddos.  We love it because there's less sun (better for the kids), easier parking and less of a crowd ~ less distractions.

I'm soaking up my kids: their love for each other and their love for us - it's priceless.  When Teague lights up inevitably so does Finn.

And introducing my sand eater.  Yep, she loves it.  Nope, I can't keep her from eating it no matter how hard I try.  I could hold her the whole time, but seriously, what fun would that be?

By the way my sand eater is crawling like a madwoman and pulling up like it's her new job - she loves her new found independence.  However, she's quickly learning with independence there's responsibility.  That responsibility is balance (sorry sweetie this is a life long lesson - balance your body weight & balance your life).

I love, love, love peonys!  They smell amazing and they're so beautiful!  These are from my neighbor Jenn's yard and the hydrangeas are from mine.

    Looks like a fun time at the beach...we have yet to make it down. Maybe this week if the rain holds off. The flowers are gorgeous!
