Savannah started 1st grade yesterday! When I asked Savannah what she liked most about 1st grade, she said, "playing on a new playground that has monkey bars." Ha!

Yesterday we spent a fun family day at Falls Lake with Grandma Barbara, Uncle Benny, Aunt EJ, and Cousin Harper. Falls Lake is about 20 minutes from our house and has a family-friendly beach that includes swimming, grilling, and playing areas. It was a beautiful day in a beautiful setting with our wonderful family. It was the perfect way to wrap up Savannah's last summer weekend before she starts 1st grade on Monday!

Tal and Savannah:
Savannah wanted to show me that she could swim to the yellow line
(where the water is over her head)...
...and she made it!
Savannah was so proud of her accomplishment!
We grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch...
...and relaxed while we waited for the food to cook:

Hadley (9 months) fell asleep on Grandma Barbara:
Here are some cute candid photos of Harper playing with her bucket on the beach:

These photos are dark, blurry, and untouched,
but they capture everyday moments that I want to remember forever.

This week I hung this sign in our entry. I bought it from this seller on Etsy.
I love the words in the sign, as well as how the teal and white colors
complement our home's color scheme:
Our entry is becoming more colorful and personal
with our staircase photo wall, marsh painting, and home sign:
