she may be young but she only likes old things

This picture makes me laugh every time I see it. Which is often, considering it's my new phone background. This week I have been hanging out with my fave azn babies, Mace (pictured above) and Bo (pictured third). They are only the most adorable, hilarious and sweetest little babies I know. Mace is 3 and Bo is 10 months. One of my favorite things is when babies remember you after a long period of time. Mace still remembers something I told him from when I babysat over Christmas. It seriously warms my heart and makes me smile so much. They're the best.
Mace and me swimming on an alligator^ This little kid is so fearless in the water, I love it.
Baby Bo tired from playing^ Bo is such a sweet, sweet baby. He hardly ever cries and he is always smiling. My favorite is when he gives you kisses, which is really him opening his mouth against your face. I love babies.

When I'm not playing with babies, I'm reading. So far I've read three new books since finishing Harry Potter. Last night I finished This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I really liked it. I love books that take place during university years and prep school, because I am so fascinated by east coast prep school life. My favorite part of the book was the dialogue between the protagonist, Amory Blaine and the love of his life, Rosalind. It was a sad sort of love story, but the way the characters spoke to one another was so pretty. Here is my favorite quote:

"You know I'm old in some ways- in others- well, I'm just a little girl. I like sunshine and pretty things and cheerfulness- and I dread responsiblity. I don't want to think about pots and kitchens and brooms. I want to worry whether my legs will get slick and brown when I swim in the summer."

This sums me up in 4 sentences.
Summer is coming to a close. Kind of. I'm weirdly excited to go back to school? I guess that's what happens when you do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for 2 months. Things to look forward to in August:
1) Last family beach trip
2) BON IVER AUGUST 3
3) Boston to see Jadyn!!!
4) Nick Jonas August 13
5) Back 2 Provo August 27 :)
