Happy happy happy Monday!
On Thursday, Andrew took Smith and Ashby to a Yankees game up in NYC (they ironically played the Red Sox). So, it was me, my big and my little for a few days. We’re all back home now and gearing up for our last fun adventure before school begins later this month. Here’s hopin’ you had a great weekend and are gearing up for something besides a boring old Monday 😉 . This is a little look at life lately around the Shull house…
The big kiddos were at day camp the week before last, so I went on a lot of walks with these two early in the morning. We love to walk around the neighborhood…and almost always walk to Starbucks. Because…my name is Shay and I’m addicted.
As I was walking, I looked down and noticed their sweet feet. See anything funny? 🙂
Popcorn and movie night after a long day at camp! We like to add marshmallows and a few M&Ms to our popcorn.
Madeley at the doctor’s office entertaining herself. And me.
Lunch date on our town square with this cutie. We had lunch at our favorite diner and then…
…after we picked up the kids from their last day of camp, we headed back to the square for dinner. I was going for that sweet, posed, adorable picture…but got this instead. Ha!
A magic shop, an old rare bookstore and a cute boy on the stairs…our little town is so charming!
Love these four.
Before Manda passed, she planned every detail of her daughter’s fourth birthday. Last Saturday, we were able to see it all come to fruition just like Manda wanted. Miss Miley is so precious and us mamas love her so much. We wish more than anything that her mom could have been there that day.
Enjoying her cupcake at Miley’s party.
There are just some moments when I see Kensington and she’s all girl and not kid any more. I came home and she was just boppin’ around the kitchen making herself a snack. She just looked so old! Where did my baby go?
On Sundays…we get out of swimsuits and into real clothes. It’s a rare occasion to actually get dressed during the summer.
Last week, I told you how Madeley likes to call for everyone and she really does feel like we should all listen to her. This was her calling for the dog. She even wants the dog to come running when she says her name. Ha!
Snuggled up with the boys watching American Ninja Warrior.
About every six months, we measure the kiddos’ on the laundry room door. Everyone grew about an inch!
We were walking into Smith’s flag football game when Samuel facetimed my mom…and Madeley lost her mind with excitement. Ha! She was screaming his name and then of course, he was laughing his head off. Those two are so funny together! And side note: Ashby’s new favorite toy is her Etch A Sketch. It’s the most random circa 1985 toy for her to play with but she carries it everywhere. And you know what? It’s FANTASTIC for her dexterity in her right hand.
Back on the town square but this time…buying the two big girls stuff from the dance store for this fall.
Smith has been obsessed with climbing the rock wall this summer at our gym. I love his little tan lines on his legs. Ha!
I really don’t know who needed who more? These two were meant to be sisters.
That’s a little look at life lately!
