This past sunday was a blast. My friend Steph (last minute) invited us to go canoeing just a bit north of us, with her family. We had quiet plans for the day, pie baking, yard work, clean house and packing, but we (last minute) jumped into the plans. We (especially I) have been wanting to take Marlowe canoeing for quite some time now--- I grew up doing it with my dad and loved and hated it (I was scared of everything). With nap time, toddler concerns, and the heat, we never made the jump to take Marlowe before. This time around, it seemed like a good time to try... and well, we're all very happy we went. It was a blast. Like I mentioned, the weather is finally starting to slowly cool off here--- think low to mid 80's. I know still pretty hot... but our fun and adventure time is finally starting. We paddled downstream to a boat ramp stop for food, drinks, and water fun (no swimming for me), and paddled back up stream in the pouring rain! AND (thankfully??) we didn't spot any gators... so yes, all ten of us made it out alive ;) It was a good day, we're looking forward to doing it again soon.

this romper. the closest we could get marlowe into shorts/tee-- or anything not a dress.
Speaking of cooler weather, M and I are flying into Boston tonight. It'll be a nice time with family. With Alex's new work scheduling and everything so up in the air, he unfortunately won't be coming up with us... but it's a short trip and we'll back be in the Florida sun and heat before we know it. Wish us safe travels! Happy Tuesday! I'll be back tomorrow with sort-of-kind-of recipe post :)
pst. thanks steph for some of these photos. you the best, bb.
