Father's Day 2015

I was out of town for most of Father's Day weekend celebrating my friend Alison. I got back Sunday at 3 which was just in time for a picnic dinner in the park with Joseph's favorite sandwich, chicken salad.

I also fixed him a little basket filled with his favorite things: a tank top to wear playing beach volleyball, his favorite candy: Starbursts and Rolos, a popcorn maker, #1 Dad socks, and a picture of Harlow and Joe for his desk at work. I love any reason to celebrate him because he does so much for us. He deserves days that are all about him :)

-Dances when music comes on or when you tell her to dance.
-Harlow has been clapping her hands for a while now but only when you would tell her too. Now she claps them when she's happy or excited about something. We pulled into our driveway after our 4 hour road trip and she clapped her hands when Joe turned off the car. We had a good laugh.
-When you ask her "how big?" she lifts her hands to the sky.
-Seven teeth!!! Yes, seven. She has 4 top teeth and 3 bottom teeth.

Loves: Veggies, bath time, puffs (strawberry and blueberry), yogurt, feeding herself, playing with her toys, when dad comes home from work, kids her size, riding in the boat and golf cart (on tangier), strolling, and going "bye-bye" are a few of her favorite things.

Our Week with Family

We spent the last week home on Tangier with family due to my brother graduating high school. The week flew by which was due to a fun filled week.

A bunch of us got together for a beach bonfire, we roasted hot dogs and s'mores.

It's safe to say Harlow has the mud between her toes already. She loved the water, the boat, and riding in the golf cart. I'm so glad she will have the opportunity to spend time on Tangier in the summer and get a taste of our childhood. 

Her 1st time to the crab house. 

She "swam" in the crab float.

And her pop introduced her to a puffer fish.

It rained almost all week so we only got two good beach/boat days in.

Can't wait to go back for the 4th!
