Life Lately

Happy Hump Day! June has been so good to us (knock on wood) and we're gotten to enjoy so much sunshine and time outside!

We took the kids to the zoo this weekend. We decided on The Maryland Zoo, even though we love the National Zoo in DC, because it's smaller, less crowded and much more manageable.  They absolutely loved it.  We've been reading Dear Zoo and Goodnight Zoo (two favorites!) for a few months now and Miller has been begging to go so we decided at the last minute to go on Saturday.  (Ironic I know with all the Gorilla drama last week but FYI no Gorillas at the Maryland Zoo ;)

After the zoo and naps we went to the pool for a little bit, had pizza and put the kids to bed so Kyle and I could enjoy some drinks out on the deck.  Another reason I love summer.  Nothing better than drinking outside.

Sunday we had my nephew Jameson's baptism and Kyle and I were the godparents.  I wish I had taken more pictures but between church and so many people I just didn't get around too it. Not even one of my boys all dressed up!

After the service we went back to my parents house for a little party and early dinner. Of course the kids were in the pool as fast as possible.

If you follow me on instagram (@eastcoastnat) you probably saw that the off the shoulder striped dress I blogged about last week finally arrived and it's so so cute!! 

We're going out for my girlfriend's birthday later this month and I cannot wait to wear it!  The dress is lined (yay!!) and it's a heavy thicker material so it can be easily dressed up or down.  There is a ton of fabric so I would suggest sizing down.  

As I mentioned we've been enjoying tons of time outside and at the pool.  The kids cannot get enough and I love how much happier we all seem to be outside.  

Miller didn't wet his pants he voluntarily dumped water down the front of himself over and over ;) #boys 

My pool day essentials- this hat and cover up are my favorites this summer! 
Cappelli Straw Hat// Trina Turk One Piece (old but similar styles on sale here)//Sundress Tassel Cover up //ZeroUV Sunglasses (only $10!!)// Havaianas 

Hope you all are having a great week!

  1. I love taking my kids to the zoo. We have Riverbanks Zoo an hour and a half away, so it's a perfect little day trip for us. www.morgan-jennifer.com

  2. I love the penguins at the Maryland Zoo! I'm definitely more of a fan of the DC Zoo, but you're right, it's SUPER huge, and I don't know how I'd handle it with kiddos.

  3. The zoo looks like so much fun! We need to get there sometime this summer. Your little nephew is adorable! And love your new OTS dress!

  4. I love taking kids to zoos! That one looks really fun...you can actually see the animals!

  6. Drinks on the deck are the best and I love your crab wine glass!

  7. Aw I love your zoo pictures! We're taking R to the zoo for the first time next week and I think he is going to love it. And that dress is SO cute on you!

  8. Love the off the shoulder dress! Yay for awesome god parents! Choosing ours was a hard choice! I guess that just means we had a ton of options! :)

  9. I haven't been to the zoo in several years! Dont think I've ever been to the Maryland Zoo which is odd because I'm from Maryland haha. Glad you guys had a good time!

  10. Looks like you guys have been having a great time! Loving your off the shoulder dress. I've been on the search for one. Beautifully Candid
