Summer in the City

Summer in the city, people! It doesn’t get better than this…I think we’re all excited for days full of playground and splash pad hopping all over the city. Throw in burgers and milkshakes and well enough said! So some of the girls and I checked out the Millennium splash pad with the kiddos today and we were not disappointed! Chicago you’re forgiven for that cra-zzzy winter!


Our 15 month teenager ;) such a brave kiddo getting under those waterfalls

A little Bunny’s First Birthday

I can’t believe Miss Summer turns one next month…ONE, how is that possible!!? We had the best time celebrating our little girl (a little early;) before we set sail, surrounded by family and friends! We went for a Peter Rabbit theme for the party as Summer is already a big book fan and the Maryville Tearooms was perfect with a touch of vintage decor! I got out our old jars and photo frames, bought some flowers, scattered a few photos and voila’! The Nanny’s baked cakes and made bunny shortbread and the cousins ate their weight in bunny tails (a.k.a marshmallows)! Summer loved every minute of it (well apart from the hat her Mum made her wear!). If only she’d remember! Thankfully we were able to capture some pretty sweet moments. Thanks to everyone who came with all their lovely gifts and made it so special.
