Nicholas has made friends with the boy that lives next door to us. He came over today and the boys played Star Wars on the swing set. It’s so cute watching him interact with his new friend 🙂

After our dinner at the ice cream place (yes, we ate ice cream for dinner), we saw a rainbow on our drive home.

The picture doesn’t do it justice, it was beautiful! 🌈

Tonight we had an impromptu dinner with some friends we hadn’t seen for a while. My parents graciously took the kids overnight so we could go out. We are lucky to have family so close.

I enjoyed this delicious strawberry sangria. We joked that it looks like they used a vase for the glass.

I worked from home this morning and the whole time there was a helicopter circling around the neighborhood. You can’t tell by this picture, but it was flying really low.

I learned later that they were looking for pipe bombs along the power lines by our house. Some had been discovered a few miles away in Massachusetts the night before. Fortunately they didn’t find any near us. Scary!

I bought a new pair of shoes online and they arrived today. After I took them out of the box and tried them on to make sure they fit, Samantha decided she wanted to try them on too.

She started walking around the kitchen wearing the heels. It was so cute! I can’t believe how well she walked with heels on.

Went to Trader Joe’s today and found this pickle-flavored popcorn. It really tasted like a pickle! It was a little over powering at first, but I liked it the more I ate it.

I don’t think I’ll buy it again, but it was fun the try.
