What we've been up to...

So it's been a pretty quiet month here on the blog.  We've been busy and I just haven't had much time to catch up on here.  But here is a quick peak into what's been going on around these parts!

We tried out the sprinkler for the first time this summer....and while hesitant at first, Lucy ended up loving it!  Roxy loved it too :)
Slowing approaching...

The weather in our area has been VERY dry!  So dry that there has been a burn ban for most of the summer resulting in no bonfires or fireworks!  BUT--we recently received enough rain which lead the burn ban to be lifted!  So we had our very first bonfire of the summer this past weekend.  It was so much fun (and a little nerve-wracking to be honest....toddlers and fires make for nervous parents!).  We invited my dad over and had some s'mores!  Lucy really just wanted to snack on the graham crackers but it was so much fun!

Lucy had a little fun with some stickers this past weekend and Pat was a really good sport about it! :)

And here is a fun treat that Pat and I shared a few weekends ago.  We made little ice cream bombs together and they were oh so good!  It was really fun as the options are endless.  We choose Butter Pecan and Strawberry Ice Cream  Some of our topping choices included:  shredded coconut, coffee, cinnamon, sprinkles, lime zest and sea salt.  We LOVED the coffee topping!  You can find the recipe here.
