Well, it’s official, at least according to the thermometer, summer is here! The temperatures went straight to the 90’s last week in Dallas, so we headed straight to the pool. During the summer months, we spend so much time in the pool or at the beach that we load up on swim wear for the boys and we’re never sorry about it. They often change out of their trunks and rash guards a couple of times (or more) each day and it’s nice to have clean and dry changes for them. We also love each of them to have a personalized “beach towel” so that we always know which towel belongs to which boy- cuts down on the squabbles. Plus swim wear for toddlers is just so cute! We can’t get enough.
Here are some of our favorite swim wear brands that have been our “go-to’s” for years. They’re all top notch quality and the cuteness factor is off the charts. Happy Summer!

May was a month full of firsts. William and Henry had their first “overnight campout” in the backyard. There were s’mores and they had their sleeping bags all set up in the tent with a place for Mommy and Gigi – which we sdly had to tell them we weren’t going to be camping with them 😉
With so much time spent outside and watching the neighborhood kids riding their pedal bikes, William was ready to move on from his balance bike. We did a lot of research and asked all of you for recommendations. We ended up with a great option in William’s favorite color- yellow. That was actually his top priority! He was thrilled and within 30 minutes he was riding it up and down the street. He hasn’t looked back!
Mother’s Day was a little different than usual, but we had a great time celebrating. We got dressed up and had a beautiful brunch by the pool, then spent the day in the pool and grilled out that evening. It was such a nice way to spend the day.
William and Henry had their last day of pre-school with a drive-by goodbye. They said goodbye to teachers and friends from a distance and we were able to get all their work from the year to look at with them later.
Another big first… Ford started sleeping through the night! That has been a game changer. He doesn’t do it every night yet, but often enough that Stia is feeling like a new woman. It’s a very welcome change!
Since we don’t foresee doing a lot of travel this summer, we made a decision as a family to introduce William and Henry to golf. We joined a golf club that’s just down the street and all the boys are obsessed. It really couldn’t have happened at a better time. They want to go to hit golf balls and ride in the golf cart. All.The.Time.
Memorial Day Weekend was the perfect way to end the month of May and welcome summer. We spent the weekend by the pool or at the golf course. We had donuts for breakfast, grilled out for lunches and dinner and spent the days either in the pool or on the golf course. By the end of the weekend, we were all exhausted!
