Now all we need is the brother!

We finally finished helping mommy decorate Ben’s nursery, and we are so excited with how it came out! Emily loves sleeping with all of the boats until she’s ready to move into Abby’s room, which won’t be long, because she’s doing great sleeping on her mattress on the floor! We can’t wait to bring our little brother home to his new room! Only 13 days to go!!! Woohoo!!!

100 degrees

It’s been over 100 degrees here for the past 3 days (which mommy has NOT been happy about), but we’ve been having a BLAST in the water! Hope you’re all keeping cool!

Our new sprinkler is so cool to run through, and it even shoots balls out the top!

This morning it was so hot that we went out in our jammies and played in the water! Emily was quite the little monster with the hose!

Happy 4th of July!

We had an awesome 4th of July weekend at Nannie & Grandpa’s house, and did so many cool things! We decided to divide our post into our different events, so you could check out all the fun we had! We hope you enjoy, and had a fun and safe 4th of July!

A Day at the Beach

We went to an awesome swimming beach by Nannie & Grandpa’s house, where we went swimming in the ocean and built sandcastles… Even Emily went in the ocean!

Annual Dinner on the Beach Night!

Every year we go down to the bay by Nannie & Grandpa’s house, and we spend the evening together enjoying the beach, swimming, throwing rocks, catching crabs, and having a relaxing dinner on the beach. Grandpa even brought the blow-up crocodile this time for us to ride down the river on… We were flying! The weather was beautiful, and as usual, it was one of our favorite nights of the year! Thanks Nannie & Grandpa!

Fishing on the Canal

This year we went down to the canal one morning for some fishing with our very own poles from Grandpa. We didn’t catch anything this time, and we were pretty bored after a few minutes, but it was still a fun trip!

4th of July Parade

Daddy & Nannie took us into the town of Southampton to see their 4th of July parade. We got lollipops & balloons, and loved watching all of the big fire trucks roar by! We got a little bored by the end of this one too, but we still had a blast!

Swimming & Fireworks on the Beach

Every year, we go to daddy’s Uncle Billy’s house on the beach for some swimming, good food, and a great fireworks show at night! Abby was more interested in the little baby boy at the party this year (she is SO ready to have a brother), and Emily kept crying out, “Oh no, I hide!” every time the fireworks got really loud, but we both still had a blast!
