Last month, we spent a week in Detroit for my brother Alex & Allison’s wedding. We did some sightseeing and spent time with Matt’s family that lives there.
The wedding weekend was an amazing party and very sweet.

My mom did the flowers, which were beautiful.
My dad loved the Hora chair dance.

We also got to spend time with Matt’s aunt and uncle, cousins, and their kids.
Mason and Charlie even got to be part of their annual summer birthday party!
Last week, Mason started kindergarten! It was bittersweet: so excited for him to make new friends and have new experiences, but sad to not have him at home.
Happy first birthday Charlie! What a year!
Our neighborhood has a cute 4th of July parade every year. It’s one of my favorite events.
My dad is “coaching” Mason and Cole during the tug-o-war but he looks a little high-pressure.
We also had Charlie’s first birthday party and a BBQ for friends and family on the 4th.
Charlie is 11 months old today! He has four teeth and two more are coming in on the top. He crawls superfast and cruises along furniture and behind his baby shopping cart too fast. I’m busy planning his first birthday party (it’s going to be awesome!), catching him as he falls, stopping him from eating things off the floor, making sure he doesn’t slam his fingers in cupboards, keeping him off of the stairs, and loving making him smile, laugh, peekaboo, sing, dance, and play. Sweet boy!
Matt & I recently spent a couple days at Cave B Winery with our friends Dan & Kaitlin without our children. Of course we missed them but the weather, food, wine, and location were heaven.
Our fancy yurt! It even had a full bathroom and mini-fridge. There was a beautiful round skylight at the top, right above the bed so you could see the stars (which doesn’t exactly work if you wear contacts) but that skylight wasn’t so awesome at 5 am. I wish I had my eye mask.
After dinner bocce tournament.
I lucked out cause Dan’s wife is awesome. (So did Dan ;)).
