We’ve had a wonderful time yesterday and today celebrating our daughter Cora’s second birthday. We are going to continue to relish her by singing the “Happy birthday song” to her, because her eyes light up and she vocally joins in. I’ll continue to enjoy these days with our sweet kids, because they are still so little, yet getting so big at the same time. We also plan on heading to the pool, reading more Harry Potter together, find some tomato cages for our garden, enjoy walks together in our neighborhood, and fully enjoying these laid back mid-summer days together.
Here are some links around the web to enjoy reading during the weekend:
