Harper Said...

"I'll take my new undies for show and tell at school today!"

Out grew her favorite pajamas and said .... 
"Maybe we could put batteries in it so its will work some more on me?" 

She got in trouble for putting her NON bath toys in the bathtub ....
"I'm going to tell on daddy for you! I am not happy about this!"

The pigs are oinking at me! They are saying, "WE LOVE YOU HARPER!"

"It's HOT! My toes are ice horses!"

"I want to dance like a princess but I don't want to wear pants"

"Takes my hair down and I will shake it like a tornado!"

AT CHURCH ---- "It's just like a sleepover! My dreams are coming true!"

Brushing her hair ---- "Please don't pull on my haircut."

"I love you and that will never change!" 

"Mommy, I need some space so I am going to think in my bedroom with my flower girl friends!"

"Jesus said that sometimes we don't need to eat our vegetables..." OH YA?

"It's my friend Conor's birthday so I am going to eat all of his cake!"

"I want to pray for every of all my friends tonight. I love them."

"I love living in the American Flag! It's so beautiful!"

We love you, sweet girl!

Our Bugaboo Summer!

September is here and saying farewell to summer is going to be a tough one! We have enjoyed so many days of sunshine as a family and though we are ready for the next season, we're sad to see this one go so soon! Our adventures this summer have been so much fun with Harper. She has learned so much about the world around her and those sun kisses cheeks make me weak at the knees. Exploring this summer wouldn't have been the same without our Bugaboo Buffalo by our side! You've read about how much we love our Bugaboo on this space here, but today, it's an entirely different story! 

Having a stroller that is durable, comfortable and beautiful is like a dream! We have fallen so in love with our Bugaboo this summer after many days at the Zoo, beach, long walks on Purdue's campus and through crowded streets at festivals and the Farmers Market! Harper is pushing nearly 30 pounds (my teeeeny tiny lady!) and carrying her is hard on my back and Michael's shoulders after hours and hours of traveling by foot, which is where our Bugaboo Buffalo stroller comes in! Harper fits perfectly into her stroller and loves to push it around too when we aren't in a crowded area! She always double checks the trunk to make sure that it's there, ready for action! Also, how beautiful is the soft pink canopy? You sure have done us proud, Bugaboo! Thank you for an amazing summer filled with luxurious travels!

Our Weekend!

We survived our first full week back at Purdue! It feels good to be home in our own beds and finally unpacked after an amazing summer full of family and traveling! We were so excited to have the Holiday weekend together at home! Friday started out like any other Friday around here... you know, dance parties and cinnamon rolls! We also spent the day exploring because we were due for thunderstorms over the next FIVE days... what? No thanks! We're trying to soak of the last bit of sunshine over here! Weekends used to be a BIG deal for us because that was our only time we would be able to see Michael outside of his Aero Lab and now that Grad School is in full force and his class load has decreased we have been able to see him so much more this past week than the entire last 2 years! It's been pretty great! ;-) 

Next up on our weekend blog post.... BROWNIES! Harps always loves surprising people with the tiniest treats so we decided to make Michael his absolute favorite dessert. Also, that robe. Whenever we are home Harper requests to wear her robe around the house, even over her clothes and it's so hard for me to say no to that tiny lady and that tiny robe! There is nothing she adores more than those princesses, let me tell ya. We spent most of our day baking and dancing around the kitchen, making up songs as we we went along. I've caught Harper singing them off and on all weekend. BE STILL MY HEART! Love making memories with my girl!

We ended our weekend at Fair Oaks Farms! Cow + Pig tours, fresh cheese and ice cream and a day full of adventures was the perfect ending to our weekend! Harper's mind was racing the entire day and she kept asking, "What's that do? How does that happen? Why?" over and over and over again. The weather was amazing and we can't wait to go back in the fall for the festivals! Also, lets talk about those pig tails, shall we? Harper wanted me to do her hair like Elsa but her hair is too short so I had to improvise! Presenting ... ELSA TAILS! Aka, Harper's new favorite hair style! ;-) Yesterday she woke up and got ready for school and came into the bathroom so that I could do her hair and insisted that I give her Elsa Tails so that she could show all of her friends at school! She also enjoyed playing Doctor to that pig and seeing the piglets roam around! We hope that you all had a wonderful Holiday weekend!
