July 2016 In Photos: Summer Fun & Ava Turns 8!

Creating my July 2016 in photos post reminds me of how much fun we had over the summer.  I know I have fallen behind but when I finally get up to creating these posts I get to reminisce a bit and I love it.

July was kicked off by celebrating Independence Day.  There was plenty of fun to be had after that…fishing, swimming, and playing filled the balmy Florida summer days.  The month came to an end celebrating Ava Rose’s 8th birthday, how can that possibly be?!?

Independence Day

This was a chill 4th of July for our family.  We usually have family visiting but this year Shane was at work and we had no visitors this year.  We enjoyed playing in the front with water to beat the heat….

And even at the pond at the end of our street.  This pic is classic because this is Alex’s very first friend, I love that they are growing up together and share their love of fishing.  <3

Audrey Violet lost her very first tooth… If you look closely her adult tooth had already come in behind it, she had shard teeth!

The girls needed new ballet shoes so that meant a trip to the mall.  I finally gave in and let them ride these critters…

Swimming Fun

The girls enjoy taking swim lessons every summer at our local pool.  This year they focused on stroke refinement but I think they enjoyed the jumps the most!

Ava decided to have to have a party outside of our home this year, she chose Pump it Up for her big event.  She was thrilled to sit on the throne with one of her closest friends…
