true independence

Hello friends! I've been so out of the blogging world for what seems like forever. Summer kicked into full gear pretty fast and I've been home for only a few days in the past two weeks. And, unlike the majority of the world, I am super un-hip with my non-internet phone. 

The 4th of July weekend was a fabulous one. The ABC family headed up to Sunriver where my family owns a home by the river. The hot sun got us out cramming in kayak, lake, swimming and running adventures. The smell of the BBQ lingered throughout the weekend and the beer ran dry. 

But what better thing to remember this year's independence day other than Audrey blossoming in her independence by walking. 

Audrey has been walking along furniture and has taken a few steps on her own, but refused to let go of someone's hand. Yesterday, she let go and just went for it. 

Every mother can agree that this is one of the most heart-melting, proud and sentimental moments you will go through. It made me want to just stop time. Freeze the moment. You want to cry, you want to laugh, but most of all, you want your baby to stop growing up so fast. 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Yes i think i can agree with that. Chloe stands now, shes not ready to start steps but she when you look in her eyes you can tell she is thinking about it.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend!

It's so sweet. To see them get so happy to get be able to get up on their own and walk off. My daughter started walking in wal-mart.
