This is pretty much what our evenings look like every day. We take Chauncey out a few times a day and in the evening we all go as a family and play at the park for an hour or so. Atticus never stays on a blanket so we stopped bothering with one and he just crawls all over the place! By the time we go home he is covered in mud, dog hair, and grass stains and he is more than ready for a bath haha. Sign of a good night in my opinion. Something about a boy with dirt under his nails is just classic and so cute to me. They love to get messy! Yesterday we brought some treats to the park and I always have Atticus and Chauncey begging at my feet for bites 🙂 they are seriously the same. When we go to the park Atticus looks for the best sticks to play with (and try to eat).. then Chauncey comes over with his stick and they both just sit there playing with their sticks. Then they wrestle. Then they look for paper to eat. Haha dogs and babies are just the best together. It never gets old at our house watching Atticus mimic him and hysterically laugh at anything Chauncey does (you are probably sick of these videos if you follow me on snapchat!). They really are best buds.

And can I get a hallelujah for cherry blossoms and no jackets or coats here in New York?! It has been unreal and I am so excited for spring. Since we moved here in December it has been awful weather so we are finally getting to spend time at the parks and explore more without red noses.

PS – my M.Gemi flats sold out quickly but I’ve been eying their other cute flats here which look so cute but practical for afternoons in the park!

  12. Your evenings sound like SO much fun! I can not wait to have a dog and baby together! Everyone keeps telling me to not get a dog until after my future children are older as it is a lot of work, but I think no matter what a baby is a lot of work so why not add in a cute furry best friend for them too!

    1. It’s such a nice way to end the day! We love it! And I totally agree!! A dog just adds to the fun 😉 We wouldn’t have it any other way! xo

    1. We had such a lovely day, thanks so much!! I appreciate your sweet compliment 🙂

  13. I love how Atticus and Chauncey have such a fun relationship! I follow you in snapchat, and I love the cute videos! Seeing them together makes me want to get a puppy for my little girl because she LOVES dogs whenever we see them. I am just keeping my fingers crossed we can get a place that allows pets when we move across the country for grad school 🙂 Oh and I also love your sunnies! Did you get your hair done lighter? I love the color 🙂
