Our MDW + Life Lately

Raise your hand if you are having trouble getting back into the swing of things after the holiday weekend (*insert raise hand emoji*)... 

Bill's parents came for a visit over the long weekend and it was so nice to spend time with them. Bill's dad helped with a big landscaping project Bill started in our backyard. There was a koi pond off to the side of our back yard that was just an eyesore and an obvious safety hazard for our dog and toddler, so he started tearing it out and they were able to fill it with soil and level it off. Now, it just needs some sod and we will have a nice grassy area to play on for Camden and baby 2! A big project that would no doubt cost us thousands if we were to hire landscapers! We were very grateful for the help! We weren't able to make it to the memorial day parade like we had planned, but we did have a nice little cookout at home.

We also all went to Camden's last swim lesson which is always fun to watch. Although, that afternoon, he started coming down with a bad cold/cough and I'm starting to think it came from swimming. He just didn't feel very well the rest of the weekend. We did manage to set up his new water table, which he loved playing with! We also worked on baby proofing more of our first floor so Camden can kind of roam around as he pleases. He doesn't really love to be confined in the 'playroom' for too long. And that boy LOVES being outside! It's so great to be able to take him outside now that the weather is nice.

Sadly, we have decided not to open our pool this season just with everything going on (having a baby being the big one). There is just so much involved and we really want to do our research on safety, chemicals, etc before we open it. I'm sure we will enjoy our pool for many years to come so I'm not too bummed about it. And let's be honest, I may not be too anxious to get in a bathing suit after baby arrives. 

Less than 4 weeks from today baby #2 will be here! We scheduled the c section for the 28th of June! Praying all goes well for the next few weeks! So, obviously June will be all about preparing for baby. I will try not to post strictly baby related things, but it's really all I can think about at this point! I'm so ready to wear something other than this dress... It has been on serious rotation the past few weeks and probably will continue to be this month!

Hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend and that your 4 day week is flying by!
Oh, and happy June!!

*Don't forget, the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is still going on now through the 5th!


  1. Sounds like you all had a great weekend!! I think it's a great idea to fill in your koi pond. My parents have one and a pool and it's a constant battle to keep the kids from getting into one or the other! You'll feel much better with the pool closed too with a toddler and newborn- next year it will be much easier to handle. Can't believe he'll be here so soon!

  2. Glad that you had a nice weekend! I bet you're getting so anxious for baby #2 - only a few short weeks away at this point!

  3. Bring on all the baby posts. I remember the one track mind you have at the end! So glad you were able to get some landscaping done before baby. Hope Cam is feeling better!


I love hearing your thoughts! It makes my day!
