We took the kids to the beach for their first time and for a last summer fling. It was definitely a fun (yet completely exhausting) vacation. Let’s be real – this was a trip.
The weather was perfect and we spent almost every morning running around the beach.
We received so many compliments on the kid’s matching swimsuits. Madison’s fit her true to size but for Hunter’s I did size up TWO… mostly because I like a little longer short (and as you can see they still aren’t that long).

Yesterday we ventured as a family to the DINOSAURS REVEALED exhibit at Union Station. We decided to park at my work and take the Kansas City Streetcar. It has been such a wonderful addition to KC and the kids thought it was super cool.
The large moving dinosaurs were very impressive. Hunter thought it was pretty much the best thing ever and Madison said she wished there would have been princesses haha.

Tigers… so masculine and so feminine! Makes for a great matching brother sister combo. To make it even better there are adult matching options if you want the whole family to get in on the fun.

A few months ago I complained about how it wasn’t hot… well it certainly is now! If my kids are outside there is usually some sort of water activity involved – inflatable pools, water tables, water balloons, and/or Super Soakers. Therefore I typically have them in comfortable lightweight clothes!
I first found the rainbow romper for M. She loves how soft it is. I will say I worried about her ability to go to the bathroom (maybe TMI) but she can navigate the snaps quite easily on the shoulder. Then I stumbled upon the matching tee for H. Score!

I hope everyone had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend commemorating all the brave men and women who died for our country.
We (of course) all wore our red, white, and blue in support.
It was ridiculously hot so for the few moments we weren’t in bathing suits I opted for the kids to wear comfortable attire that I knew would still end up wet from a water table and rocking a nice Popsicle stain or two!
Madison’s shirt is also the flip sequins making it double adorable. Check it out…

Headed into Memorial Day weekend the kids’ school is continuing the spirit week with a Stars and Stripes Day. This super cute matching dress and shorts set works perfectly and will also make a reappearance for the Fourth of July! My daughter rated the twirl factor on this dress a 10.
This set is also from Eleanor Rose. The key to shopping their stuff is to sign up for the email notifications so you know when the pre-orders happen. The releases for holiday apparel can happen up to six months prior to the holiday and are always the ones that sell out with very little chance to order later. This morning they are wrapping up Halloween orders for example. Their non-holiday apparel does tend to stick around a little longer; however, also seems to lack in the boy options.
I highly recommend checking them out!
