Apple Picking.

As of yesterday we have fully leaned into all things fall! It was just under 70 degrees, perfectly sunny, and we spent the entire day outside enjoying the crisp air. I loved everything about this summer, but bring on autumn!

Beach morning.

While in Bethany over the long weekend, we headed straight to the beach one morning to take a few pictures in the morning light. With just a few weeks until Hazel's first birthday, each moment we capture with her feels like one we'll cherish forever.

Bath time.

I'm trying to get better at remembering to pick up my camera in the normal, everyday moments we experience with Hazel. While sometimes having my camera on me can feel like a burden, Hazel is getting bigger every day, and I'm continually grateful for all the times I paused to document the sweetness of life with her. Yesterday's bath time was nothing special, just part of the daily routine, and yet these may be some of my favorite pictures I've taken of her to date.  photo IMG_1158_zpsznfgypbw.jpg  photo IMG_1157_zpsouv0fw2h.jpg  photo IMG_1145_zpsuj76hcyl.jpg  photo IMG_1168_zpswfb5w3bw.jpg  photo IMG_1171_zpszjqvayzg.jpg  photo IMG_1173_zpsboq8stid.jpg  photo IMG_1186_zpskgdoqkta.jpg  photo IMG_1197_zps3ubicgtn.jpg

I'm completely serious when I say I look forward to this day all year. There is a 30 acre field of sunflowers just a half an hour away, and I've been anticipating this since our visit last summer. My friend Christine and I always joke about how flower anxiety is a real thing - we're either afraid we'll miss peak bloom, or when we go everyone else in the world will be there, too. The fears were real this year as peak bloom happened on a Saturday and there were multiple news stories about the blooming flowers. I knew we'd be in for a crowd, so we headed there around 9AM. We shouldn't have been surprised, but A LOT of other people had the same idea. Thankfully, with 30 acres to work with, there were plenty of flowers to go around and it was just as magical as it looks. Giddy doesn't even begin to describe how I felt, and Hazel loved them, too. See you next year, sunflowers!  photo IMG_0918_zpscefifmxq.jpg  photo IMG_0920_zpsr43qwirt.jpg  photo IMG_0925_zpsmbeal0ah.jpg  photo IMG_0935_zpskjz32o1i.jpg  photo IMG_0957_zpswvadi1iv.jpg  photo IMG_0967_zpse0lh6vx5.jpg  photo IMG_0979_zpscwgbcakn.jpg  photo IMG_0984_zpsgn1yd9ro.jpg  photo IMG_0992_zpstospgeax.jpg  photo IMG_0999_zpsufizvhbg.jpg  photo IMG_1020_zpsrtgm4rmx.jpg  photo IMG_1028_zpsxeibuzfg.jpg  photo IMG_1039_zpsofhtvd0i.jpg

4th of July Parade!

Every year the town of Bethany Beach has a lively 4th of July parade - which includes a bike parade - and this year we decided to join! We decked ourselves from head to toe in red, white, and blue and had the most fun walking in the parade. Hazel recently learned how to wave, and it was the best seeing her wave to the people as we walked by in the wagon. Her and Sully were definite crowd pleasers!
