Life Lately

I started going through all my photos on my phone to get this post started and all I found was this...
and this...
and this.
Abigail and I have both been put through the ringer with colds and stomach viruses, so we've been doing a lot of sleeping and Sophia the First watching. Not complaining though ;)

When Abigail was feeling better, she was back to her old self as seen here...

We took a road trip to attend my Aunt's birthday party and she had the best seat in the house, while my mom and I were squished like sardines in the seats next to her.

When we are recovering from some sort of illness, we've been living in the pool. One day last week, after weeks of using her floatation vest, she asked me if she could swim without it. I, of course said yes and out of no where she started swimming on her own... and hasn't stopped since!

Hmm, what else is new... Oh, I broke our bed! No, not like that... you see, I wanted to hang something above our bed (that black and white tapestry that is draped at the top of the bed) and I went to go stand on the bed to hang it and the whole thing just snapped in half. Not my proudest moment... I've spent every minute since in the gym.
Kidding. Haven't been to the gym once. It's on my to-do list though. Right next to 'buy a new bed'.

Abigail had an 80's dance party at school this week. I forgot all about it until the morning of but was pretty proud of myself that I was able to throw an outfit together in minutes. It's also worth mentioning I didn't ask her to pose like this, she just did it. And I love it!  

My sister moved into a new house this week and all the help Abigail provided was to make sure there was no pizza left. She did an excellent job ;)

And that's been life lately for us. A lot of our time has been spent on an exciting project that I'll be blogging about soon, once the timing is right.  #notpregnant

Our 4th!

We took a little beach vacation over the long 4th of July weekend and when I say 'we took', I mean we free loaded on the two extra bedrooms my parents had available in their beach condo and shacked up for 4 days with them. (Thanks Mom & Dad!)
Timing couldn't have been more perfect, since Billy has had the past 10 days off while he was transitioning to a new job. It was officially the most time we have ever spent together in the 10 years that we have been together and neither one of us wanted to kill each other as he went back to work this morning, so we're doing good, guys! Doing real good. 
Other than a new job, things with our current housing situation have been really stressful and my work has been keeping me BEYOND busy, so a nice little beach vacation was much needed all around. 
The condo we were fortunate enough to stay at, Hammock Beach Resort, is perfect for a family vacation. They have the greatest kids pool with a sandy beach (minus the sharks, sub kids pooping in the pool...ya win some, ya lose some), water slides, adult only pools and hot tubs. They put on the best fireworks show on Sunday night, which made it that much easier to head home on Monday, the 4th without feeling like we were missing too much of the action.  

I went a little picture crazy, so if you made it all the way down here, you're a real gem. And if you want even more, I made this little video that captured some more of our trip. You can see that here
