My girl is 2!

Enjoying a pink Starbucks donut on her actual birthday

August had a birthday on Saturday! Yep, my baby isn't a baby anymore. Each birthday is always bittersweet for me, especially with Augie knowing that she is most likely my last babe. I don't want them to grow up anymore! If I could keep both of my kids as they are today I totally would.

When I saw my precious girl for the first time!

I will do a birthday party post of all of the rainbow-y goodness once I have the pics ready!

First week of Summer Vacation

So this week was Luke's first week of summer vacation and we've settled into a routine that keeps us outside as much as possible.

In the morning we get up and have breakfast then get dressed. We take a nice walk to the sand park that's about0.7 miles from our apt.

August has finally gotten over her fear of sand!

After a few hours at the park we head back home for lunch. Augs goes down for a nap and Luke gets quiet time to play Legos or watch a movie. And I get quiet time to get some work done! Then when August wakes up we head to the pool. That's usually the highlight of his day! All of his friends are there and he can swim and play with them for hours.

Augie got a waterbaby from our sweet neighbors for her birthday.
(Birthday party post coming soon!)
Luke actually took a few minutes to play in the baby pool with his sis.

August has also gotten over her fear of water being poured on her head. I guess the incredible heat will do that to you!

The bathing beauty! She hated her rash guard and kept yanking at it so we just took it off. Don't worry she was coated head to toe and back again in sunscreen!

What they are wearing:
Shirt: Target (No surprise it's Star Wars)
Shorts: Puma from Marshalls
Shoes: Yep, his favs AGAIN

Shirt: Carters romper I cut the bottom off of from last year
Shorts: Denim bubble shorts from the Children's Place
Shoes: Converse
Rash Guard: Absorba from TJ Maxx

First Day of Summer

We celebrated the first day of summer by going to the farmer's market and then hitting the pool after Luke got home from school.

Lukie Boy of course had to ride his scooter

Then stopped for a snack of berries and cider.
Some days they are so good and share with each other without complaint.

PS Augie's dress is the one I made for her to wear for her rainbow birthday party on Sunday. I wasn't totally in love with it but I think it's grown on me

Sweet Siblings

Lucas is the greatest big brother. He is so protective of his sister. And such an amazing helper for me!

He gets his feelings a little hurt when she won't give him kisses and hugs. Poor guy, August is definitely in a Terrible (almost) 2 stage and everything is "No!" Any time he gets near she pushes him away. He calls her Braticus Maximus. LOL

But we know she still loves her big bro! She's always trying to copy him and do the things that he does. They really do get along so well and love each other so much! I hope they stay best friends always.

On August:
Romper: Made by me from the The Maliboo Romper pattern from Lil Blue Boo
Shoes: Toms
On Lucas:
Tee: Lego Star Wars Tee from Target a while back

Shorts: Old Navy
Shoes: The trusty green Converse

Memorial Weekend style

Sadly most of my Small Style posts are about August because I never remember to take pics of Luke before school and by the time he gets home he is usually a disaster. I swear he wears clothes everyday :) I will try to get better.

Saturday was the opening of our pool. Luke went to hockey and to the Strawberry Festival with his dad so August and I had a Girls Day by the pool.
On August:
Swimsuit: Calypso for Target

All weekend long Rolling Thunder was in town and the main hotel they stay at is a block from our apartment. August was totally enamored with all of the bikes and every time she'd see a pack of them she'd get so excited and yell "Go! Go!" So on Sunday for the big ride she got decked out in her Harley gear and if it hadn't been so hot she would've been wearing her Frye motorcycle boots too. Needless to say she got a lot of attention!
On August:
Tunic: Made by me 3 Little Birds Stitch Co
Leggings: Old Navy

On Monday we played at the park...again....and went to the pool....again. We got to hang out with Luke and Augie's BFF Maya too! The kids had such a great time. I know August has worn this dress before for Small Style but Maya like them to match and so the fact that their dresses are the same style was good enough for her!
On August:
Dress: Made by me 3 Little Birds Stitch Co
Shoes: Target
On Maya:

Flip flops: Calypso for Target
