A Historic Night...

I don't care to while end of the political spectrum you lean, everyone should be able to take a moment to reflect on what happened last night...

Hillary Clinton became the first woman of a major party to accept the nomination of President of the United States.

My little nerdy heart exploded as I thought of how far we've come... Love won... and now this!

Doodle got to stay up to watch it... She definitely didn't grasp the enormity of the moment, but I'm okay with that. She gets to grow up in a world where it doesn't matter who you love and where being a girl does limit you, it gives you limitless possibilities.

How freaking amazing is that?!

That said, I don't care how you vote in November... Well, I do care greatly, but I'm not going to get into that... Just vote.

A Hockey Casualty...

How stinking cute is my hubby?! I mean, what's not to drool over... Rock-hard abs, body by Crossfit, smiles for days, oh, is that blood?!

Joe took a puck to the face last night (deflection off of his own stick, I believe) and bloodied himself up pretty good.

At least his scar will match Doodle's! :/

Eat Her Bubbles...

Everyone knows that I didn't grow up going to camp... We went to "The Swim Club" every day and that's where the summer magic happened. Life at UMSC was awesome-- early morning swim team practice, days in the pool with friends, a snack bar treat in the afternoon, and grilling dinner with the family. It. Was. Awesome.

It hadn't dawned on me that day camps existed... Even though there was one down the road that a few friends went to, all of my friends went to the swim club!

Now, my world is a little different... We live for camp. Correction, we live ON A camp. Doodle wakes up every morning and runs through her backyard to an amphitheater where she dances and starts her day off with 400+ campers!

This past school year, Doodle made some friends (she actually made A LOT) of friends at school and a few of her little Besties go to MCC and they all decided to do swim team together. 

She wasn't the fastest on the team, but D sure did make an effort... a bunch of new friends... and a lot of memories!

I don't ever want to forget this...

Doodle has an extremely wiggly tooth... So I whipped out my camera for a few candids of that perfect baby-toothed smile:
She also came home with a bucket list that she had written on the 100th day of school. I hope they do this every year so I can track her hopes and aspirations:

Yes, Tank turned 3...

...and in typical second child fashion, Mom never posted the video. Whoops. Without further ado...
