Break out the firecrackers! It’s July, folks. The month of scared dogs, crying babies, enthused children and really excited dads.

This month kicks off so many things. Our independence, a full month of summer goodness and, let us not forget, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! More on that later.

The 4th of July feels like Christmas, but without the parkas.

Most everyone has the day off to just relax with family and there’s usually good food involved. We usually find our way to the play in the lake, too. That makes it a favorite in my book.

The kids love it + I can’t help but see the irony here. ‘Independence’ describes these two babies of ours pretty well. If it weren’t for food + transportation, they probably would’ve left home a long time ago.

I’ve never seen a four year old with a full-time job, but Breckin could easily be the first. Addison can’t wait to grow up and live out her aspiration of becoming a zookeeper, and she will probably do it. Do independent and strong-willed go together? 😉

We had a blast taking these pics around Seattle with Trisha Marie Photography! Check her out if you need a photog. Here are some more shots from our d̶i̶r̶t̶y̶ favorite city!


Have a fun + safe holiday! And as always, you guys are cooler than sugar in a Kindergarten class when you shop my affiliate links. Thank you.
