Fun in The Sun With The Tales of The Traveling Tote

Welcome friends, today the gals of The Tales of the Traveling Tote are sharing a special edition of Fun in the Sun.

 Lilly at High Hand Nursery.  Lilly stayed a week with us.  We had lots of fun and outings. The two of us went to see the Lion King.  I bought Lilly the Mackenzie Childs lunch tote.  She named her tote, miss Lulu.So....miss Lola and miss Lulu were hanging out.

Lilly loves to bake, so we baked a sprinkle cake with cream cheese frosting.

Lilly and miss Lulu playing with her lol dolls in the bling room.  I slept with her in this guest bedroom.  Every night, we watched the baking show, Nailed It!

All smiles getting her nails done.

Lilly and Logan playing in the pool. Fun in the sun with the family.

My granddaughter Michaela and Logan cooling off.

Getting veggies and fresh flowers at the local farmer's market. 
The flowers are so lovely and affordable.

Lilly and I having more fun with Snapchat.
I will leave you with this awesome airplane.  Hubby and myself went to have lunch at Wings, a local restaurant at the airport.  I saw this red plane with black and white checks.  How cool is this?

 August will soon be here.  Stay cool!
