summer rewind.

Once upon a time, the month of June flew right by me. Lots of fun was had
And little time was left for blogging. 
I figure what better way to celebrate the month of August than with a look back 
at the beginning of summer?

***

The husband finished up his residency program
and we hosted an after party at our house.
resident graduates!

Residents, attendings, family and friends
enjoying food & cocktails inside and outside. 
Beer pong in the garage. 
Guests at the house until 3am.
It was a good party.

My family came up for a visit 
and we had a BBQ, with both of our families
where we made the big announcement.
Baby-to-bee!
We framed our ultrasound photo and gave it to our dads as an early Father's Day gift :)
I swear Mocha has gotten so much bigger since this photo. She is growing like a weed.

hammock lights + fire pit + smores
fireworks were a hit

Then, we celebrated a year of marriage
with a romantic dinner at The Castle Hill

Can we go back and do it again?
