Chloe's Big Girl Room

The same day that we closed on our new house we started painting Chloe's room. We wanted her to feel at home, so we began making it as pink as possible right away, per her request. 

Her room is the first one to be "done". I loved how it turned out. We splurged on the colorful pink duvet cover from Pottery Barn Kids, but it was worth it. I love the brightness it adds to her room. Since her comforter was a bright pink I tried to find a nice more neutral pale pink for the walls. Demure by Sherwin-Willians did the trick. 
Both the kids have nice big closets, perfect for storing all the toys!
Chloe loves her very pink room, and I think has finally adjusted to sleeping there. Honestly at first it was a struggle for her moving into a big girl bed and room. But I think we have gotten to a good place and I see lots of fun times to be had here!

Point Pleasant Beach

Last week we were at the Jersey Shore. One of Clarke's cousins got married, Chloe got to be the flower girl, and we all enjoyed celebrating at the beach.
Luke looked quite adorable in his little bow tie! Both did great at the wedding, we ended up staying later than we anticipated because Chloe was having so much fun dancing the night away. 
The best family picture we could get!
This was Luke's first time leaving the state of Virginia. He did okay on the road trip. Being in the car seat really isn't his thing, the last few hours were rough, but we made it. I remember when Chloe was in this stage, thankful he will outgrow it!
Once again Chloe loved the beach! Luke enjoyed it too.
We celebrated the 4th there, and this was Chloe's first time seeing fireworks. She loved it!
One day we went to the Boardwalk, tried the famous Kohr's ice-cream and did some rides.
They also had a small aquarium there that we visited. Chloe's favorite part was the penguins. 
Overall we had a great trip! I was relieved that Luke slept well in the pack n play. Makes me want to plan more travels!!

We spent this past week doing vacation bible school, or "church camp" as Chloe calls it. I volunteered to do arts and crafts, Chloe was in the 3s class and Luke was in the baby class. Fun was had by all! 
I've loved hearing Chloe sing all the songs she has learned throughout the week, but the best part was at dinner tonight. I was asking her about her bible story from today and what she learned, she replied "God knows everything about me!" My heart is so full.
