sweet sixteen, lilacs, milkshakes, croquet & cowboys.

summer is in full swing around these parts. this weekend was full of family and fun and outdoor get-togethers. not to mention, a saturday night movie, Super 8, and sunday evening milkshakes. benji and his cousins played hard. my darling niece is turning sixteen. i've watched her grow up, i met her when she was only six years old! she has become one of my heroes; she raises seeing-eye dogs, makes fast friends with anyone, is creative and athletic, lights up a room with her sparkle and has such great fashion sense. happy birthday, anne.

now your turn, what did you do this weekend?

+ tune in tuesday when i'll officially kick off my F.A.Q. session.

Sounds lovely. We finished planting the garden and wore flipflops to celebrate temps in the 60s and a day without rain :)

Sounds extremely perfect. I need moments like this with my family.

PS: don't forget this giveaway end today.

Oh how I love summertime and family time! We had a fun weekend as well, spent in Swan Valley. Looks like you guys are settling in and enjoying every moment. As always, love the photos.

Love Love Benji in a cowboy hat. What a cute little guy. Glad you had such a great weekend. It is great to keep up with a little bit of the Dansie's lives since we don't get to see you quite as often. Had kids here this weekend. Great time for family.
