In a few short weeks...

I don't think I've blogged since we found out we are having another precious girl! I will be the first to admit that I was nervous going in to our ultrasound. For the last 16 months H was my "favorite girl" and I was nervous on how I would do with two girls. I know it sounds crazy because we have two boys at home and God filled my heart with love to go around when Ky arrived but I was nervous none the less. And when they told us "it's a girl" it took me a few hours to let it sink in. As it did joy filled my cup. I love having sisters and I mean LOVE LOVE my sisters. As we've grown older they have become some of my closest friends and I am so excited for Harper that she will be able to have that experience and now as it gets closer I can't wait to see who she looks like. Counting her toes and fingers and holding her close are high on my priority list.:)
Now we just pray for H and her heart as I know this precious gift who we are naming Willow is going to rock her world. We plan on getting her a baby doll shortly before Lo comes and hope that helps with the transition a little bit. For now she just walks around tapping on her tummy and saying Baby Willow...she's a tad confused:)

Our Summer and Bucket List

Our summer has flown by! It's hard to believe that August has arrived! This season has been full of joy,  endless baskets of laundry, gallons of ice water in water bottles, laughter around the table, cookouts with friends, adventures to the park, coffee shop, and farmers market, and memories that I hope will remain close!

We started our summer sitting around the table with a piece of construction paper and markers in hand and created a bucket list of things we hoped to experience over the course of the summer. As we sat and discussed we laughed and talked about memories of times we'd experienced some of things we were adding. The excitement was overflowing as we talked about what was to come. As summer is turning the corner and fall is slowly creeping up I look back and smile and am thankful for these moments we've had. It won't be long until our newest bundle of joy arrives.

An afternoon at the splash pad was a success!

We love smores and the time spent around the campfire!

Sweet Girl loved the slip n slide and couldn't get enough of the water!
