Praise hands for a week of good health in this house!
We were able to round out the last week of July without anyone getting sick. So, we spent this week at summer camp, many afternoons spent in the pool, and time to simply soak up the goodness of summer. This is exactly how I imagined how summer break would be.
To the highlights!
I never did a smash cake session with Marcus and regret it immensely. With Julia I simply had to make it happen.
We headed off for the hills of Hollywood last weekend for a few family photos and a smashing of the cake. I am dying to see what our photographer, Sarah, captured because Julia did not disappoint!!
More Birthday Prep
It's mind boggling that in nine days Julia will be ONE. Most of my free time has been spent doing all the things birthday.
The Science Center!
Birthday prep aside, we've been soaking up the lasts bits of summer fun before school resumes.
The kids and I snuck away to the Science Center for several hours one morning/afternoon, and it took so much convincing to get Marcus home.
The USC Rose garden is right next door. I figured we could frolick through it a bit. The kids weren't nearly as into it as me. But it was pretty and the smell! Holy cow, it was so fragrant and amazing.
Fro-yo and Oreos
Bedtimes are fairly non-negotiable, regardless of season. But indulging in deliciousness? I've been pretty relaxed with those lately. Clearly the kids aren't enjoying the sweet treats.
Today we're off to enjoy some time at the beach and a weekend without plans!
Cheers to the weekend!
