Party of 7

I found the perfect table! It's a beautiful counter height table, made of solid Birch wood and fits anywhere from 4-8 people. There are 4 side leafs that fold down individually and tuck away conveniently. When the leafs are extended it is a large round table and when folded down it becomes a square pub table. But you can leave some up, some down, etc. The possibilities are endless! You are probably wondering why I would be so excited about a table, right? Well, eating at the table together is something that is very important to us. It's our time to connect at the end of long, busy, crazy, chaotic days and a place we gather to start off our fun filled weekends.

The perfect table :)~

This is our patio set that we used for the first 6 months we lived in this house. It worked great for us, but the babies were constantly standing underneath of it screaming at dinner time to be a part of what was going on up top. It's now where it belongs on the deck and thankfully we have built in seating around the deck which allows us to all sit at it on warm days.
I had a bunch of really cute pictures of the kids first time sitting at the table, but apparently I didn't upload them before I emptied my picture card. Anyway, they were so cute and so excited to be a part of what was going on! Cam was so content you didn't hear a peep out of him and he just kept this "I'm such a big boy now" look on his face. Alina just kept smiling and couldn't get her finger foods in her mouth fast enough. Bryce had to check things out by looking under the table, through the back of the chair and feeling the one next to him~
