Summer and sunflower fields go hand in hand. Last summer, we stopped along the side of the road to take pictures with about 100 other people. It was a cluster. This year, we opted for Dorthea Dix Park in Raleigh. We got there pretty early but it was still very crowded. I was amazed with… Continue reading A Day at Dorothea Dix Park
I got back in town Friday around lunch time and Liam had gone down for an early nap. Since Landon had to work, we made plans with friends to meet up at the pool after nap time. As I was pulling into the pool, Landon texted me to say they’d just closed it due to… Continue reading Weekend Wrap Up 7/6-8

A friend and I were talking about asking for experiences for our kids for Christmas over a bunch of things that will be tossed aside in a few months time (seriously, these kids outgrow toys in 90 days!).
