Our Good Summer Day. {Well, Minus the Crying.}

I’d say that about 70% of our good summer day was spent hearing DEA {our sassy, stubborn 3 year-old} whine, complain, cry and defy. Needless to say, in order to de-stress, we {my CarseatDancers & me} needed to get out of the house.

AKA {our 4 year-old} found ways to “nignore” her sister and entertain herself as I dealt with Delaney’s whining. This photo was taken just prior to leaving. Seconds after snapping this shot she hugged the fan a bit too tight {while singing} and clipped her finger. Lesson learned.


DEA, after 5 “costume changes,” decided that she liked the look of sequin & ruffled polka-dots.
Our little Fashionista. {& If I might add…quite the color combo, hence my black & white photo.}


AKA was thrilled to be able to wear her new sandals out. Totally on trend! DEA: “Addison, my really wike YOUR sandals too.”


Our final destination.
This was our first time conquering “Funland.” {Del Taco‘s indoor slide & play space.} They loved it! All of their cooperation and giggles {almost completely} made up for all of the whining earlier.


Cheers to you & your good summer day!
xoox, Jen
