Another week of summer down!

I am so weirdly emotional about summer ending! The fall is always my favorite time of year and I’ve loved this time for as long as I can remember – even in the years where I was out of school and I didn’t have kids. But this year, I’m just so sad!

I knew this summer would be unlike any other, with having a new baby. Technically getting more time with the kids (all the recipes you’ve seen the last two months were ones I shot before Jordan was born!) and snuggling my last baby. I’m so sad that it’s coming to an end. It’s like everything at once – Max starting school again (like, for “real” – first grade – it’s serious!), Emilia going to school for the first time, all coinciding with the end of the “4th trimester” and Jordan growing more. I’m just a ball of emotion! It’s like I’m having one of those moments where I know my kids are as little as they are ever going to be.

So this upcoming week is our last full week of summer break and I want to make the most of it.

These two played together SO MUCH this week, it blew my mind. I mean, they always play together but they played for HOURS on end. It’s like they subconsciously know that school is starting soon and they won’t have their days together.

Um hello this is my favorite sight.

Garden veggie PJs!

What are these flower plants with the little pepper like things?!

Made my grilled buffalo chicken sandwiches for dinner one night.

The kids were asking for my pumpkin muffins. These are THE BEST.

And made a batch of my coconut zucchini bread. OMG this is SO GOOD. And if you use vegan chocolate chips, it’s vegan!

Max got a haircut and wanted to model it with his “creepy face.” As you can see, he is still in his Nike obsession.

I want to eat him up.

Took a little trip to one of our favorite places.

This is why I love the Doona so much!

I’d like to live in this.

Our morning wake ups are the best.

My most favorite girl ever.

Happiest boy!!

Max had a giggle attack while playing outside and kept telling me to take pictures of his posing like this. It was absolutely hilarious! He was laughing so hard.

Can’t get enough of my little loves!
