Friday I’m in Love {July}

I realize that it’s not Friday but that’s how the last week has gone for us. I still wanted to share my Friday loves for this month, so here we are!

1 (2)

{1} I love the 4th of July for many reasons. We hosted a 4th of July pool party this year, so we all were decked out in cute 4th of July apparel. It probably doesn’t surprise you that most of it came from Target! Cat & Jack is one of my favorite brands for the kids, including their swimsuits. Crosby wore lobster swim trunks and Kenley had the Lucky Charms one piece suit. Kenley also wore the Americana stars and stripes tank. I’ve since picked up the Rose in the USA shirt on clearance for next year.

{2} We got a couple Big Joe floats last year (the watermelon and the lime) from Sam’s Club and they are my absolute favorite! The bean bag style floats are definitely the way to go since they are durable and don’t pop. We found a couple Big Joe Petz floats for the kids at Aldi last week for an amazing price! We have loved having them in the pool this summer.

{3} I have had a Road ID bracelet for a while that I wear when I run, but I got each of the kids one last year after a recommendation from a friend. We’ve used them so much this summer between trips to the theme parks and Kenley going on field trips for camp. It’s becoming second nature for the kids to wear them when we’re going to be out and about. One of nice things about the kids bracelet is that it comes with three different sized bands so it’ll grow with them!

{4} Old Navy has been having some amazing sales over the last couple of weeks. As I have been slowly back to school shopping for the kids, I have picked up a couple things for myself that I could not pass up. My favorite so far is the slub-knit tee dress. I ordered the black and gray and I have worn them both so much in just a couple of weeks. They are super comfy and can be dressed up or down. I scored them for $10 each, which you cannot beat!

{5} I am sure you have noticed that hats are a staple in my wardrobe this summer all the time. Maggi and Rachel both mentioned these hats that with airport codes on them and I immediately loved them! I started with the Aviate MCO hat since I need to represent Orlando, but there are several cities and colors on my wish list! They are so cute.

What are you loving this month?

Legoland {July 2018}

On Saturday, we headed to Legoland for a final trip before our passes expire. We’ve had so many great experiences there the last few years, but we are ready for a little break. The Wrights joined us on Saturday too, which made it even better!

We rode the horses for the first time ever!

LEGO Friends are their favorite!

There were a few new Star Wars additions to Miniland, which Crosby was very excited about! I think LEGO Chewbacca was everyone’s favorite.

Hollywood Studios {June 2018}

To kick off the first couple days of summer, we headed to Hollywood Studios on June 1st. This was a much anticipated trip as it was the first ride on the Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster for a few of the friends. The morning started with a trip to Starbucks to fuel the day.

Untitled

We thought we may have time for Star Tours before our first fast pass but it took a while to get into the park, so we headed straight for Tower of Terror. We ended up doing child swap and taking turns going up in the tower. Kenley lucked out and got to ride it twice.

Untitled

Untitled

After Tower of Terror we saw the Frozen Sing Along show. This was our first time seeing the show and I am truly disappointed in us. The show is hilarious! I kept telling Greg that I can’t wait for him to see it.

Untitled

Untitled

We hit up Star Tours next before it was lunch time!

Untitled

We opted for some indoor activities after lunch and saw the Muppets in 3D! It was a cute show, but not as cool in there as we had hoped.

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Before heading over to what we thought would be our last fast pass of the day, we met Chewbacca!

Untitled

Untitled

Riding Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster with six year olds is the best. The looks on their faces are priceless. They both love the ride so much, but the start of it gets them every time.

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Half of our party were able to snag an additional fast pass for Toy Story in the evening, so Remi in guest relations hooked us all up with fast passes AND free ice cream for the kids. Obviously, we got a selfie with him. Our day had been extended a couple more hours, so we headed back out for some dinner.

Untitled

Untitled

We caught the Little Mermaid show before ending the day with Toy Story! It was such a long day, but so much fun!

Untitled

Untitled

We kicked off summer the best way we knew how and these mamas were tired by the end of the day!
