so, i'm going to do some catch-up. i was going to make one giant post on the highlights of our summer so far, but then when i started choosing pictures, i had almost 40! i think that's just too many for one post.... so, i'm going to start with a part 1. sound good?
remember is my last post when i said we were booking a vacation? well, it was awesome! i'm the kind of person that needs a beach at least once year. sand, palm trees, fun dinners. i could move to florida or california in a second (as longs as family and friends moved too...). this year we went to south carolina. never been to surfside beach before, but it was pretty cute. maybe a little too close to myrtle beach, but still a great place to getaway.
probably my favorite picture from the whole week. man i love these two!
we don't do much on vacation. everyday pretty much looks the same. wake up, go to the beach, C takes a nap and i go to the pool, C wakes up, we go to pool or beach, take baths, dinner, bed. it's perfect. it's our kind of vacation. lazy and predictable. =)
father's day and my little brother's birthday was the sunday after we got home from vacation. it was a great family day. celebrating our daddyboy first, then time to celebrate my daddy-o and bro.

my brother is not so little (25 y/o & about 6'3), but will always be my little bro
kind of blurry, but i don't have many pictures with my bro and SIL. love this!
ok.... what next? should i keep going or stop there?
how about one more fun weekend?!?!
remember in this post when i said i couldn't wait to squeeze my best friends newest little baby?? well, the warnings invaded our house and it was perfect. i can't tell you how happy it made me to have not just them in our home, but my lexington best friends and their kids too. it was a weekend of family. the other kind of family. the kind where the kids call you aunt, only because you're like a sister to their parents. i loved so many pictures from that weekend, it was hard to narrow it down. i wanted to capture all the laughs and giggles and dancing and love.
ok - i think i'll stop there. i still have so many pictures to share, but i think 25 pictures in one post is enough.
i promise (if only for myself), part 2 will be soon!
hope you're having a fun summer too!!
