Busy July!

Wow...what a whirlwind few weeks it has been! 

The week after the fourth of July my friend Andrea came to visit!  We had a great time together and even got a girls weekend away.  We headed to Friday Harbor to visit Sara and all three of us had a fun, photo filled time.  I did not take any but these two will take care of that, believe me, much better than I could!  We headed to Seattle and got to spend a day in the city with my sister in law Mollie and a good friend Katherine who met us from Portland.  I don't think I have laughed that hard in a was so good to catch up, eat and shop.  These are what girls weekends are made of!

Shortly after that we had a little scare!  Olivia had a febrile seizure that in the words of my doctor "scares the crap out of you" to put it mildly!  I noticed that she seemed a little more tired than usual that day, but we had been up early in the morning so it didn't seem to abnormal.  We laid down for naps and I was so thankful that I decided to lay down with her (to nap myself) and next thing I knew she was completely unresponsive (eyes open) and her body trembled.  It was terrifying and I had to call 911!  During the call she continued to scare me because her lips turned blue and her eyes rolled back...I thought I was losing her!  I just prayed and called Brian as the ambulance took us to the ER.  You never imagine these things happening!  Praise God it was a one time thing and she is more than ok.  It's actually pretty common and if it does happen again I'll know what to do.

A few days later we had family visits!  It's been so fun to see everyone and spend time laughing and just being together.  My girls love being with all their cousins!   Here are some of the highlights:

The McCown kids!

Summer days don't look too different than regular days as far as our routine around here goes...we still eat our meals, take naps, etc.  Toss in hot temps, friends and family visits, a few meals outside and maybe a later bedtime (it stays light so late up here!) and that's what we look forward to about this time of year!

gotta have the token messy spaghetti dinner shot!

breakfast on the patio (don't you love the bed head?)

Liv rockin' the animal print this season!

water table fun

so different from her sister who would've never set foot in grass at that age

i love the greens my camera captures :)

hooray for cherry season...another yummy summer fruit grown here!

unfortunately, winter, spring, summer or fall there is never a break from all the laundry (how it looked when we got back from Cali, just to clarify!)
