I really can't believe that summer is nearly here and the kids are checking out of school for the next 2 months! If you are like me the thought of entertaining hyper children all summer is already making my head spin. Luckily day camps were created to give us moms a hand and to let the kids run off steam during the day. Of course we can't send the kids to camp empty handed and we need to be fully prepared to send the troops off stocked and prepared. There is nothing I hate more than when things go missing at school/camp and thankfully Stuck on You are here to make our lives just a little easier.

My deepest apologies for abandoning Lattes and Juice since December! It just became too much living on a building site with the children and I was desperately trying to keep my head above water. Between the invasion of the builders, not having a kitchen, endless noise and dust, terrible weather, living literally with giant holes in the house, and barely any internet just took a toll on me. Thankfully our house is 97% complete and all so incredibly happy in our bigger and much improved home! Still unpacking the house but finally feeling back to myself again. Just cannot believe that this is really our house and I promise to give a full reveal on our renovation in the next couple of weeks.
So here's the complete low down on what I have been up to for the past 6 months (seriously cannot believe I took such a long break)!
Andy turned 4 in December and it's crazy how quickly he has grown up. We threw a London themed birthday party for him with a trip up to the London Eye. Most of his friends had caught chicken pox just days before the party so we ended up having a small and intimate group. Everyone had such a great time enjoying the breathtaking views of London from high up. The amazing London cake and bus cookie pops are from Biscuiteers in Notting Hill.
And in a blink of an eye little Miss Milla Rose turned 2 in March with a Peppa Pig birthday extravaganza in our new kitchen. My lovely friend made the most amazing and gigantic Peppa cake for our birthday girl and I don't think it will ever be forgotten.
Thankfully we had a big trip planned in December just when the building works got really bad. We were missing doors, windows and walls at this point and it was just unbearable living in our house. We headed over to stay with my mom in New Jersey and the kids just could not get enough of the snow. No trip is complete without checking out all of the holiday sights in New York City, just like a tourist.
We were spoiled rotten with a fabulous trip to Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic with my family for Christmas. I have been going to Casa de Campo since I was a little girl and always have the best memories here. It was just incredible to bring my kids to CDC and to be able to share this amazing place with them. My husband had no voice the whole trip and Andy had a fever the whole time but there's no where better to be sick!
