Last night Drew and I loaded up the two babies and headed to the park to watch some fireworks! We put on noise cancelation earphones for our little Isla girl (she slept through all the fireworks) and Dash was busy meeting lots (and lots) of new friends! Between Isla and Dasher we got stopped every few minutes,  those two totally stole the show and were a total hit with everyone we were sitting next to!

I hope you all are having fun gearing up for the holiday weekend! Here is a patriotic outfit idea in case you needed some inspiration!!

    Hello there,

    I recently purchased some Karen Walker sunglasses online. I don’t know if they are real or not. I am reaching to you to see if you could help ?. Are they made in China or NZ?

    I would appreciate your response.

    Thank you in advance ..
