this is what summer is about...

Summer is about...cousins spending the night.
Raleigh and Camden spent the night with us last week. We went to church on Wednesday night (I love Wednesday night supper). Then woke up and went to the Grant Park pool. We watched a movie, ate popcorn while playing with toys and laughing a lot. To say that Josie loved it, is an understatement. She smiled and giggled the entire 24 hours they were here.

The girls' room

So I like saying "the girls." The girls will share a room. Which has worked out pretty nicely so far. The family who we bought this house from had two kids. I remember telling Russ that I was so amazed (thought she was crazy) that she had two kids in this (2 bedroom) house. Ummmm now that is me. Seems natural, though.

Josie moved to a big girl bed this past weekend. It was thankfully uneventful. No big deal, yet.

I have a couple more things to do in their room before it is complete. Initials above their beds (thank you anthropologie) and a bed skirt for Josie's bed. We got the chair at the end of Josie's bed recovered recently. If any of you visited me in college this was the ugly green chair I always had....and loved. Now it is super cute! I really wanted Josie to have an iron twin bed. Russ and I waited and visited Scott's antique market and found exactly what we were looking for within 5 minutes of being there and for much less than I had budgeted....score!
