Five for Friday - Summer is HERE!!!


It's Friday of my first full week of summer, and I'm living it up! My parents are in town visiting, so I'll keep it pretty short. And warning before you begin reading: I'm not mentioning ANYTHING school-related!

Tuesday was our 8th anniversary, and we had free babysitting since my parents are here. We took advantage of it and enjoyed a very nice dinner at Julep's. So yummy!!

The next day, we went to Maymont to see the animals. It was a lot of walking, but it was worth it. The coolest part was getting to see the bear. He actually sat down and enjoyed an apple right in front of us. Yeah, that's a real picture my dad managed to capture!

Keagan had a blast, and I think he's LOVING having his grandparents here to enjoy!

Days have been hot, but the evenings are perfect for eating outside! We've been enjoying lots of food on the grill.

Yesterday was the perfect day for the beach, so we made the trip down to Sandbridge. It was our first beach trip this summer, so it took a little while for Keagan to remember he liked it. After about an hour, you couldn't pull him away from the water. I literally dragged him kicking and screaming back to the chairs for him to eat some lunch. We were out for at least 4 hours. Unfortunately we all left with a little bit of sunburn even though we reapplied sunscreen. Luckily his is pretty light, but he's not a fan of being rubbed down with Aloe. He'll just have to get used to it!

I can't wait to make even more memories this summer and am so glad it's finally here!

  9. When my kiddos would get a sunburn I would have them take a bath with Epsom Salts (couple handfuls- they don't have to see you put it in there!) and it really takes the sting away and it doesn't seem to stay red and sore for very long! (Works for adults too!) Have fun at the beach!!
