For Jozy's birthday a couple months ago, we went on a fun adventure. Along the way we took pictures of her and lil sis giraffe. The goal is to make take some more through the summer and put together a book for her. But I really wanted to share the first set. So here are pictures from their first grand adventure.

I could have scolded the girls. I could have told them no for the 100th time. I could have gotten mad and made us leave. But I'm so glad I didn't.
As parents we get caught up in "raising" good adults. We get are constantly teaching them responsibilities, how to follow rules, how to treat others, and so on. But sometimes we forget to teach them to seize the moment, to embrace life. We forget how important finding adventure, magic and joy really is.
Boot will dry, clothes can be washed, and these memories will last a lifetime. So I am making a rule for myself! Let the kids be kids every possible moment of everyday. And you know what next time, I think I'll splash around too!

I confess that I am completely over doctors and hospitals. I have an ear infection and frankly refuse to go in. The girls have been sick with one thing or another all month.
I confess that with all the sickness I feel like I need to bomb my house. Instead I am spending the day deep cleaning. Which is almost as frustrating as going to the doctor.
I confess that since the girls have been home for a week, I am now a little afraid of summer break in three weeks. I love having all three girls home but they are EXHAUSTING! And trying to entertain the big girls while keeping Button from causing trouble is almost impossible. I need some good activities, if you have any suggestions?!
I confess that my blog has really been lacking since I have a horrible case of writers block. It drives me crazy and I am really frustrated with not being able to put thoughts into coherent words!!!!
I confess that I miss Button's non-mobile days! I love her adventurous spirit. But she has more feisty sass than her big sisters combined and is fearless! She is constantly trying to give me a heart attack as she climbs up everything and gets into the most random places.

I feel like there is so much to catch up on with life lately. I don't promise fancy blogs but I do want to have these moments documented. Last month we finally bought the big girls bikes and boy do they love them! They ask to ride everyday and have so much fun with the new freedom! Here are pictures from their first ride with Daddy!
I recently got myself a real camera and I am in love. Its not a dslr, but its an upgrade from a point and shoot! Bonus, I got it for a great deal. Since I got the camera, I thought it would be fun to get a couple cute pictures of the girls with the nice weather!Our little Button at 15month! I can't believe how fast time has gone by and how much she has grown! This girl is all personality, spunk and wildness! She is her own girl and so very smart! Its exhausting chasing her around but so much fun too!
We ended the evening (aside from the before mentioned accident), with baby dinosaurs! Let's be honest, this was the magic moment for the girls! I mean BABY DINOSAURS! You can't beat that!
