Sweet Summertime

I had a nice weekend! On Saturday we loaded up our whole crew and went to the Farmers Market. We ate lunch at this taco food truck and it was heavenly. It was our first time to eat there and I'm already looking forward to going back. The girls had a blast at the Farmers Market and Campbell did too. I came home with some gorgeous flowers and wanted to load up on peaches and tomatoes but I got so hot while I was picking out flowers and all I could think about was getting in my air conditioned car!! Maybe next time.
Later that evening Scott and I got away for a date night. Earlier last week we were adding up how many actual dates we've been on together since Campbell was born and we counted about 7. That's one date every other month since he's been born! We're self admitted home bodies and love just curling up on the sofa, having some wine, and watching a good movie but it's good for your soul (and marriage!!) to go on an actual date. We decided we've got to do better and strive for at least once a month. We had a nice dinner then went to the Bentonville square for some ice cream before heading home. Oh and Walmart. We always pop in Walmart and grocery shop on our date nights because it's just so much easier to do it that way. Romance is alive and well in the Johnson house!
On Sunday I co-hosted a baby shower for my bestie, Jaclyn, at my house. She is pregnant with baby #2--a boy!--and we needed to celebrate the little man. I can't wait to snuggle him!!
Campbell and Ivy are quite a pair. Ivy LOVES Campbell. I know she looks like she's not real sure what's going on in this photo but she was loving his attention. Campbell was petting her and talking to her this morning while she was curled up on her perch and I thought it was so sweet. Ivy thinks she has to look after her baby brother. She is so good to him. Madison is too but Madison is more interested in fetching toys than protecting Campbell.
I made the executive decision for Campbell and I to have a fun, classic summertime week this week. I'm normally so worried about making sure I get dressed and get out of the house to run errands and get things accomplished. This week we're taking it slow (and makeup free!) and enjoying this hot summer while we have it. I went to the pool today while Campbell napped (Scott was working from home) and I had the pool all to myself. I decided to actually hop in the pool and go for a swim. It was like I was living in a carefree world. When is the last time you went for an actual swim? It was so fun! I want to do that some more this week. Campbell and I went to the pool last night after he ate dinner and had fun splashing around. I still want to do the splash park so I'll put that on the to-do list for the week. And tonight Scott, Campbell and I went to the park to swing and slide and it was so fun! It's so easy for us to just stay inside because it's so hot right now but I'm going to embrace it this week. We may as well truly enjoy this summer weather and be outside as much as possible!!
