Seems Summer is sneakin' by awful quickly. Can't hardly believe it is July already.  Normally, we would have visited our local swimming hole many times by now, but w/the mild weather & all the rain & all the busyness we've been once.  We got out the small pool at home for a couple days but finally got our first trip in to the pool. 
I love this little small town pool with all its awesome vintage charm.  Besides being a laid-back pool (it rarely feels crowded), the pool house screams mid-century.  I want to steal all the vintage wire locker baskets and the wonderful old metal signs, industrial lighting & fans. 
The kids love to come here. Its only 12 minutes from our house so hopefully our July will be filled with many visits to our local swimming hole.

I wore this outfit to work the shop this past Saturday.  Turquoise/aqua is my fave color.  I was a little leary of a pencil skirt on my 5'  1& 1/2" frame but with the wedges I think it works. 

Polka dot shirt: forever 21
pencil skirt: J-Crew factory
Belt: old navy
Wedges: Target
Earrings: vintage my shop
Hope your week is well!

Indianapolis Zoo

It's a rare day when we "don't have anything going on". Between the shop, Stephen's teaching schedule, & other obligations it seems the days when the four of us can all be together are few. Recently, we took advantage of one of those rare days and took the kids to the zoo.  We took in all the sights, sounds, even smells.  Max has been saying lately that he wants to be a marine biologist. He wants to know if he has to wait till he is a grown up to be one.  He'd like to be one now.  I've told him its never to early to start learning how to be one.  So, it wasn't surprising that his favorite activity was getting to touch the sharks.  We also got to take in a dolphin show.  I'd actually never been to one so I was pretty excited too. :)

This photo cracks me up.  The best one of mommy & the kids.

This is where Max got to touch the sharks. 

The little princess seemed to be more interested in staring at all the other kids.  Especially the babies.  "Look Evelyn, Zebras! Monkeys! Lions&tigers&bears oh my!" " Look Mom, Baby! Kids!"
