I started out the trip with a girl's weekend at a cabin with some of my dear childhood/high school friends. It was so lovely to catch up, eat delicious food, have some girl time, and enjoy the lake :) I think I took about 3 pictures the entire weekend because I was too busy catching up and soaking it in.
After a few days of girl time, I rejoined Josh and Luke at my parents house and we started out a fun + busy week. There was a date afternoon/evening, pool time, cousin time, a park day at the lake, walks, and lots of rest and relaxation (although--of course--less sleep!)
We finished up our week with my cousin's wedding and then a trip to the local county fair. Then, it was time for Josh to pack up to go back to Texas (someone's gotta work, right?!), but Luke and I stayed for another week.
We had more cousin time (full of lots of "learning opportunities" as well as cute antics!) and more time to just hang outside with family. Plus, I also grilled for the first time ever! Sweet corn for the win ;)
ps. don't the kids look happy ;)
All in all, it was such a sweet visit--hardly believing that two years ago we took this chubby baby and just last year Luke was just a bit over one. And next year--there'll be another baby (and cousin!) in the mix. Yikes!
I promise it won't be so long before I send out another blog post because...
1. There is new shop product launching next Tuesday--and I'm dying to share more with you!
2. We know the gender of baby #2--any guesses? I plan on sharing more about that and this pregnancy soon!
