What did I smile about in July!

Don't want to jinx the weather but it has been a pleasant summer so far. It was a busy month again but whats new right?

July 4th weekend - The Patels came to visit over the long weekend and the house was chaotic with four kiddo's but was so fun too. The kids loved the splash pool before dinner and fireworks on the 4th.
Baby Nivedha - We finally got to meet little miss Raja and spend some time with her over the long weekend. The girls were all dressed up in their new Indian outfits for Nivedha's little celebration lunch. I was surprised we were able to capture this first picture of all the kids.
Up Up and away - our travels continue and this time we ventured to Chicago. The girls are such troopers and loved to fly. They were obsessed with the planes and entertained everyone around us on the plane. They stood on us gave each other high fives and then went down for naps on the way there and back. I love our little plane selfies!
Family - A&A got to meet their cousin Shreyanna for the first time. It was so nice to catch up with Sarj (Kaka) and Sweta (Kaki) in Chicago and am glad we got to spend some time with them on our short trip there.
Reunions continue - I think we are making up for lost time since Deeps and I were busy having babies. Got to see these lovelies again this year and also got to meet precious little Ananya. Thanks for hosting us and putting up the active twins Deepti & Advay! Also squeezed in a quick visit with Deepika - thanks for coming to see us on such short notice. I am glad we got to see you.
Park time - Taking advantage of the lovely days at the park! The girls love the swings and are now testing the grown up ones. This park only had one bucket swing but that hasnt stopped us from improvising before.
Goofing around - Our girls love our glasses so we got them some sunnies of their own. They love following Switch around and sporting their sunglasses in their diapers on the weekend.
Wine and chocolate - I work with some amazing women and got to enjoy an afternoon away from the desk on a bus trying out some unique chocolate spots in the metroplex.
Dinner with Masi's - Chaitni's mum was nice enough to cook for us lot one weekend and the girls loved being spoilt by these masi's while I got a break. We played in the splash park before heading over.
DSLR is back - As you all know our DSLR had a little milk accident on our trip to India/Bahrain. All is well in the world of Reema now that we have a new one. Cant wait to play with it and subject my little ones to lots of photo shoots.
