when h & em came to town

Em came into town for a few days for my grandpa's funeral. It was a last minute trip, so we were really glad that we had a pretty free week (it's been rare this summer) so we could get Blake and Hudson together. (And have an excuse for some girl time including thrifting, catching up on the Bachelorette, painting nails, and chatting the night away.) The minute that we put the boys together on the couch, they grabbed each other's hand. Sure sign they are going to be good friends, right?

The next morning, we let them "play" together. They babbled back and forth, played with each other's hands, and Hudson even tried to suck on Blake's arm.

It happened to be Blake's 5 month birthday that day. What a treat to get to spend the day with his cousin Hudson. We also took the boys to a pool party. I found Blake's cute swimsuit on a Gap clearance and it makes me happy that he is getting some use out of it.

Oh yeah. And we tried out red lipstick. Obviously, this is not the occasion to wear it, but my dad was re-shingling the roof and the moment was too perfect not to capture it. His face does not lie. I'm pretty sure he was thinking, "I do not agree with my daughter's lipstick decision" at this exact moment. :)

We had a blast. Come back soon!
