Steve and I just celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary! It’s so crazy amazing to look back and reflect on your time together as a married couple over the years- and an anniversary is the perfect time to do so. Even though it’s only been 4 years since we were married, we’ve had 2 babies, so it’s been busy! And it’s funny to think about how we’ve changed, how our lives have changed, and reminisce about how we first met, when we started dating, and our wedding day. Sometimes we can’t believe it’s been 4 years already, because it went by so fast, yet, at the same time, we can’t believe it’s only been 4 years, because we feel like we’ve known each other forever and it’s crazy to think about a time when we weren’t together… it’s funny how time works that way… the one thing I do know for sure, is how lucky I am, and how- even she I don’t think it’s possible- I love this man more and more with every passing day. ❤️
So we actually did it ,and have lived to tell the tale! We flew with 2 littles from Boston to Savannah, and actually, it wasn’t that bad!!
I attribute most of the success to snacks, pacifiers, bottles/pouches, naps, and felt books that included little pieces to play with! Here are some photos from our travels!
…and how I got to end my night…
Definitely the sign of a successful day! We drove up to my in laws house today to spend the night so they can drive us to the airport in the morning. This plan works out so perfectly for us because we are leaving our dog here- which means no boarding, yay!- and we don’t have to worry about long term parking, etc. and are hoping to do curbside check in with our bags… if you’ve been following the blog for the last few days, you know I’m a tad nervous about flying with two littles and I’m hoping this process goes as smoothly as possible! (I will keep you updated on how it goes and share my own tips soon!)
We had about a 3 hour car ride driving up here, which went mainly well- kiddos were in pretty good spirits for the majority of the ride, and then we were able to celebrate with all of Steve’s family- aunts, uncles, and cousins, that couldn’t make it to Sailor’s bday party the other day. We had a great little pizza party, and Sailor got sung to again- she was in all her glory 😁!
This picture was snapped on the way up to bed after Dash stayed up waaaay past his bedtime… Of course when you’re staying with grandparents, the kids get a little spoiled- which is great! At Steve’s parents house, it’s lovingly called “anything you want day” – which sounds pretty awesome…
We leave in the am for the airport! (As Dash would say, to go up in the sky!) I’ll keep you posted on our (mis)adventures ❤️
This week was the Best Week Ever! July 3-July 9th, 2017!
Sailor turned ONE and we had a killer bday party for our baby girl!
Our new toddler trampoline is definitely a hit!
The birthday girl!
Fantastic mail day…
Keep up the good work Breyer’s! (#normalizeveganism)
Dash was so proud of himself for doing this puzzle! (With a little help from us, but not a ton!)
Birthday parties with toddlers 🙂
Making a cow mask- let the ‘Moo’ing ensue!
And some eye candy- these photos!
We threw Sailor her first birthday party today!! I can’t believe my baby is one already! She started saying the word ‘up’ and took a couple of steps on her own! I think she’s gonna be walking and talking more and more- and we can’t wait! Here’s some quick pics from our fun today!
Yes, I do love vegan chocolate cupcakes.
The first time I’ve seen Dash dig into a cupcake!
Party = success! Thanks for celebrating our special day!
Are you going away on vacation this summer? We leave for South Carolina in a week and I’m equal parts excited and overwhelmed! The idea of packing for a family of four- yes, I will probably micromanage my husband’s luggage as well, and flying with 2 little ones- ages one and two, is definitely a little bananas. (Especially since we also have Sailor’s first birthday party on Saturday and I have a to- do list a mile long before leave.. eeek)
We will be heading down to Hilton Head for two weeks with my parents- which will definitely be a huge help, AND Steve and I are going to escape to Charleston, SC for a night to celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary! This is where we just booked our night away! (I’m dying!)
So, I’ve basically been reading all about tips to travel with kids, since we’ve never flown with them before. And also reading up on all the best of Charleston. (I grew up vacationing in Hilton Head, so I’m pretty prepped for that area already, and besides, we’re all just really excited about the pool and straight chillin..)
Here’s a round-up of some of the tips I’ve been scouting:
Traveling with kiddos!
and of course, our getaway!
One of my fav things to eat on the fourth, or really all summer long is corn on the cob!
How do you eat your corn? I eat mine round and round! Apparently, how you eat your corn says something about your personality- if you eat your corn round and round, you tend to be more artsy and creative, the right brained people- if you eat your corn left to right, like a typewriter, you are an orderly organized person! How interesting, right?! (My mom and I eat in the round and Steve and my Dad eat left to right!)
Happy Birthday America!
