There's just something about summertime in the Pacific Northwest--the green trees, the long days, and the beautiful blue sky and water. We had a great week spending time with my family and continuing Andre's indoctrination into all things Washington. Here are some of my favorite moments:

Rhett's newest obsession is stealing our phones (no matter where they are hidden) and either pretending to call Nana and Poppy or walking around with the camera turned on saying "Cheese". He's a natural with an iPhone camera--here are a few of his recent masterpieces. Clearly he has a gift.

This week André and I embarked on the Whole 30...no grains, dairy, or sugar for the entire month of June. Just meat, lots of veggies, and a little fruit. I think we're crazy.
The Whole 30 is a roller coaster of emotions, so there's no better way to showcase it then through gifs:
I was a serial snacker with a serious sweet tooth
The night before we started, we binged our chocolate Jo-Jos to get rid of the contraband. This may have been a bad decision as we started the next day with a cookie hangover.
Day 1 was great. I ate all the veggies and started analyzing my eating habits. Because after 12 hours I was clearly an expert.
Days 2 and 3 brought amazing sleep. This Whole 30 thing isn't that hard and totally worth it!
I'm ready for a nap by 10 am
By Day 5 my patience is gone. It's Friday--where's my weekend treat?
I'm making Rhett's lunch and am tempted to eat it all and make him eat spinach instead.
Luckily, I remember a bag of peaches in the fridge to tide me over.
On the morning of day 7, I'm seriously considering if this is worth it. But then my skirt fits great and I feel great and I'm all like...

Little boy in a big dino footprint (Rhett looks 6 years old in this picture)
Lego version of CU campus...we loved the mini buffalos
His morning book reading position of choice
Evening stretches after a busy day...being a toddler is rough
Watch out, Arrow. André's coming for you.
An afternoon at the archery range where we compared ourselves to every fictional archer (Arrow, Katniss, Hawkeye, etc.)
Picking library books is hard work
A typical scene of free toy finding...sanitizing in the tub
Apparently being a young, female Republican in Boulder is a rare thing (who knew?), so the RNC keeps hitting me up. A little confidence booster, no lie
Rhett spent an entire music class giving hugs to all his lady friends
Bolder Boulder finishers!
Just shooting baskets on a full-size hoop and saying "miss" every time. I think he thinks he's missing by inches, not feet.
Pearl Street train selfie. One of our favorite new summer activities!
Iris fields for daysss
A visit to the goat farm, where the goats couldn't keeps their mouths/hooves off André
When Rhett sees a kickball game, he has to drop everything to watch. This is serious business, folks.
