Happy Fourth of July!

I am so, so ready for the long weekend. I'm off work at noon today and it can't come soon enough. Erik and I will be spending the weekend in North Dakota at his mom's cabin. Pontoon rides, grilling and eating too much food (no doubt) and chasing my sweet toddler around the lawn.

If you're looking for festive recipes check out this post from a couple years ago.  For an easy appetizer check out these mini BLTs and for a red, white and blue dessert try these berry pudding trifles.

My little girl is a walking machine the past few days! It's so fun to follow her around the yard while she explores. She's still a little unstable but is mostly walking as her main mode of transportation now. Sometimes she'll reach her hand out for mine to get better balance, I just love that.

Wish us luck as we get ready for a 6 hour road trip with a toddler! Any tips?

  1. Take a ton of snacks, little books and some small toys. She may fall asleep too.

  7. hope the car ride wasn't too bad. As a kid when we drove from Wisconsin/Minnesota to my grandparent's in Ohio I'd always sleep the whole way, my mom called it "the shortcut".

  8. @Liz - I wish Juliet would have slept the whole way :) She slept a couple hours and fussed most of the rest. It's not easy being a toddler in a car seat for a long time but hopefully she'll sleep more when she's older. That and movies will help a lot!
