We did a lot of holding a sweet, sleeping baby.
We met friends at the Splash Pad.
We had temper tantrums. Some of us because we are 4 and life is hard and some of us because we are 33 years old and life feels hard. Frozen peas on knees are a lifesaver after a longer run.
Our princesses lived in castles.
Daddy (and Mommy but there isn’t photographic proof!) proved that we’re older but we’re still talented.
Ev tried to have a sleepover in the girls’ room. If you can tell by HK’s face she was not impressed by a baby in her bed.
Possible photo captions - “Because sometimes the couch is too far from a really good tv show" or “things HK tries get away with when she knows mom is upstairs with the baby”
We’ve spent lots of time outside….and even more time in our jammies.
I normally head out and around the neighborhood at 5:15. Snakes are always horrible but are especially awful that early in the morning!
We spent a lot of time on the swing set. And yes, my child is sticking her tongue out at me!
Evelyn spent a LOT of time hanging out with us and her blankie is never far away. Thankful we've got a few extras so if this one gets lost we will survive. She won’t sleep without it.
Teaching Ev how to jump in the jumparoo! When did she get big enough for this?!?!?
Best toys in the house are all our little plastic “guys” and they can to play any where! Didn't you know Captain Hook loves to take over train tables?!?!?
Poor Evelyn! I often wonder what she thinks of this chaos.
The girls went to a camp put on by the county called Safety Town. They learned all sorts of things from the police, firemen, etc about being safe. They loved it!
Sweet baby has gotten to the “I have to try to lick everything around me stage” and she got her first cold. I was sad she was sick but very thankful for extra cuddles and very, very thankful for that snot sucker!
We had an unplanned photo shoot yesterday and these are some seriously cute girls! Do you notice anything about Ev’s hair? All that brown hair she had as a baby has fallen out and strawberry blond fuzz is quickly growing in. Jared is outnumbered in every way in this house but he’ll always know which girls are his!
I about had to have a search party come in to find the girls last week. Evelyn had a great time playing in all the stuffed guys that live in the zoo.
Then, while all the stuffed guys were out of the zoo I had a hard time finding Halle Kate. Do you spy her? Look to the back of the picture. I came upstairs to find her right where she belongs - IN THE ZOO. Too bad she could get in and out by herself. I would have left her there until Jared got home!
The girls were super excited to open the door to a box from the TX aunties with more stuffed guys. They ran upstairs so that the new guys could meet the old guys. I found them all playing school on the stairs that afternoon.
