Busy & Beautiful Summer

This blog has been suffering from a major lack of posts lately, but this blogger is having a wonderful summer! The rain has finally settled down and we are enjoying some beautiful days. We were at a wedding this past weekend of some good friends and had a lovely time. It was a whirlwind trip for us since we left bright and early the morning of the wedding and drove 6 hours to get there in time. She sat well through the outdoor ceremony (it was HOT!), but then was a bit of a crazy girl for the reception. She was running, running, running the whole time. I was a pretty exhausted Momma after that. I couldn't really blame her too much for wanting to run around so much since she had been cooped up for 6 hours in a car until then. We stayed one night and then spent the next day shopping and hanging out with family. Little Ellie doesn't really do well in hotels. She has always been a bit of a finicky sleeper and only recently started sleeping well at her grandparents' houses when she visits. So, instead of staying another night, we decided to drive home late, which would be less stressful. We got home around 1:30 a.m. last night and crashed into bed. Needless to say, I was tired today! I still haven't finished unpacking, and it's almost time for bed!

We also had a fun Canada Day and enjoyed taking Ellie to the parade for the first time. We missed it last year, but she had SUCH a blast! She was waving at people and intently watching the whole thing.

Fun at the parade on Canada Day.

Cute as a button at the wedding.

A nearly impossible-to-get family picture. This girl barely sits still for more than 2 seconds.
