Happy Friday!! I'm sooo tired as I write this, ready for bed and for another week to close! It's been so busy lately, with Lila's birthday, Pre-K graduation, WORK, and this weekend I'm hosting a bridal shower!! 

On top of that, next week is Grant's birthday, then Father's day, so lots of celebrations on the horizons. 

Here's what we've been up to lately ...

Our sweet girl graduated PRE-K!!! They had the most adorable ceremony complete with little caps. I bought Lila some flowers and a little "grad" balloon - so sweet. All the kids also got to say what they wanted to be when they grow up. Lila said "ballerina." Another little boy said "a banana!" #goodluckdude.

Our strawberry and raspberry crops are in full swing and it's so fun to go pick and eat them right off the vines!! It's something the kids have been looking forward to each night after dinner. We have yet to have anything of substance make it from the bowl into the house though, but that's OK! 

The weather has been mostly gorgeous and sunny! We've been eating outside a lot and being silly of course. 

Such as ... this picture. 

Our hydrangeas are also in full bloom and are so pretty!! They were the perfect backdrop for Lila's Frozen party (given the nice ice blue color) and I've already had several bouquets around the house. So pretty! 

Did I mention the weather? We are lucky enough to have friends with boats and they invited us out last weekend - check out Mt. Rainier! Being on Lake Washington in the summer is my happy place. 

We all even jumped in ... the water hasn't quite warmed up yet for the summer, but it felt really refreshing on a hot day!!! 

Hope you all had a great week!
