Wardrobe Wednesday- Summer Dresses

My kids are lucky. 5 of their 8 grandparents live within an hour of us, so they are able to see them quite regularly. My husband's parents live the closest on a beautiful rural property complete with a pond, a large selection of Christmas trees a really fun tree swing. The girls and I, along with my brother went over there yesterday morning to fish for a few hours before it got too hot.

The girls wore dresses...
We also picked carrots because Grandpa somebody planted carrots in the garden and some on the corner of a field and some more on the corner of another field and so on all over the property.At home, Binny topped and washed every single carrot!





I love summer.

Speaking of grandparents, today is Grandma Dee's birthday! I love her. She called me shortly after Oliver died and left a message that went something like this...

Hello Ali? Yeah, it's Grandma. We're fine. I just wanted to call you and tell you how sorry I am to hear about Oliver. I went shopping for a sympathy card today but couldn't find one for a dog so I thought I'd just call instead.
