Asher has baseball practice two days a week. For an hour and a half. Yikes. The good news is that there is a park right next to his practice field. The kids love to play there while Asher practices. The other day I took the camera and got some great pics of the girls. The […]

Princesses Gone Wild

IMG_9478

The girls pulled out their princess dress up trunk the other day. Sophie decided to be Belle and Isabelle was Cinderella. For some reason I think their outfits were chosen based on color and not the princess they represented since neither of my girls are interested in princess movies quite yet Well, it was about […]

Growing up in Atlanta, spring always brought with it an amazing and plentiful display of flowers and greenery.

Isabelle was interested, loved feeding them, but was a little anxious when we got up close. On Wednesday we brought carrots again and Isabelle seemed much more comfortable, but I was fairly […]

IMG_9242

The girls were stringing beads the other day and Isabelle came to me with one of the lacing strings and communicated to me she wanted me to put the string on her in some way. Then she stuck her tongue out and panted like a dog. Immediately I knew she wanted me to ‘walk’ her […]

Bubbles!

March+24+110

The FFFF challenge for this week on Double Happiness is a favorite of ours around here…bubbles! It was a great motivation to get outside on a beautiful day and try to capture some bubble- making moments Isabelle did have a melt down when I told her not to run off into the neighbor’s yard, which […]
