A Summer of Firsts

This summer has already started off as a "summer of firsts", naturally, as our little family grew a +1 last October – "hello" Rowan! The cold winter weather kept us cooped up and cozy for a little while…but now that the sun is out and the grass is green our little family is exploring everything and anything we possibly can.

Seeing the world through Rowan's eyes so far this summer has been anything short of amazing. 

It's been such a joy to watch him explore everything around him. His first time swimming, experiencing the waves crash the Lake Superior shoreline, curiously watching a small frog jump around on his lap, sniffing and holding flowers we find on our walks, watching birds and airplanes fly high in the sky, and most recently, taking a fun ride in a baby swing at the park for the first time! Every time Rowan enjoys one of these "firsts" we get the pleasure of enjoying it right along with him. It might be one of the best feelings I've ever experienced in life…

Below are photos we had captured of his first time in a baby swing at the park…big thanks to the lovely Gemma for snapping these for us! We also got to spend the evening playing in our new sandals from Naot – wearing sandals from this company is about as close to feeling like you're walking on clouds as it gets. SUPER comfortable and very cute. What I loved the most about the buckle on the side of my sandals and across Dusty's – is that they are velcro – believe it or not! Making the adjusting of the straps super quick, easy, and comfortable. You can find my sandals here, and Dusty's here. And links to tops similar to what I am wearing can be found here, here, and here.
