Lately in Photos

Just a few photos from lately, & a sticky note to remind myself of what Abel told me it means to be married... 
"ummm be together all the time... 
aaaand, drink coffee."
Happy Wednesday Friends!


Because Kids + Splash Pads

I love that Chris works in Old Town. When Abel was our only one, we used to meet him for lunch alll the time, and since growing our crew we don't do that as often. I feel like we've mostly got this three thing down now though, and all of the splash pads are up and going too, so now is a better time than any to get back in the habit! I feel like the the kiddos would agree, life is just best when we are all together!
^^^Lucy's sweet face.
^^^Favorite shot of the day. Abel loves the thrill of ALMOST getting wet, not the actual wet part ha!
^^^Not wanting to leave face.


A Very Happy Party in the Park!

I will start by sharing a personal record, and that is me posting this the day it happened... say what?! For reals had a post scheduled for today, knowing ahead of time that there was no way I'd have put together this post yet, but look at me go :) 
We had a little birthday gathering with family for Isla + her cousin Mila at the park, and it was perfectly sweet. Why we don't do every birthday party this way is my thought. Simple, sweet, + easy clean up... note to self. We ate, the kids played, and all at my very favorite park here in town. It's the same park where we had Abel's 1/2 birthday at (HERE), also Lucy's 1st Birthday (HERE), and it's the very same park where the sneaky squirrel ate our muffins (HERE). 
It was a happy happy day + Isla proved to be my favorite baby some more :)
^^^How sweet is Mila, and my beautiful sister. SO special raising kids with your sisters. 
^^^Happy Birthday Isla Girl, you are so special.


Isla Jane is ONE! a Gift Guide!

Sweet Isla is having the smallest of birthday gatherings, just family in the park. She needs next to nothing, but I always love putting together these sweet little gift guides + maybe inspire your gift giving for fellow one year olds in your life!

1.\\ Jammies Forever. I love sweet jammies + these fruity ones from here are so precious.
2. \\ Blocks! These wooden ones with the different shapes aren't like any of the ones we have at home. I like that the big kids can get creative with them as well. Maybe they'll build me New York City again :)
3. \\ A Sweet Dolly. Lucy has the pink version, so you know... sisters, and matching, and dollies and what not. 
4. \\ A Pull Behind Toy! Each of our kids have enjoyed a pull behind toy at one point or another + this little guy makes me smile when I look at it. (Has already been purchased)
5. \\ Boooooks, and more books. Can't get enough books. These are all on Amazon.
6. \\ Clementine Kids Quilt. We love our muslin quilts, they are the perfect size + weight for littles, and pretty to look at too.

Happy Gift Giving!


When Isla Jane got cuter...

Between the headband + the shoes, I seriously can't stand it. She's so dang cute, and so big! 
I feel like I've already seen so much growth in just a week of her being one... a few things to note before she goes + changes some more.
 She has transitioned to hard soled shoes. If you take them off of her, she will bring them back to you to put back on, every time.
My sweet little old lady baby- she has the best walk.
She's officially just as much of a hambone as her sister.
Now since she's all grown up, she wants to hold babies who aren't one... like her cousin Mila who is only three weeks younger. It was the most precious thing ever, she'd wrap her arms around her + then lean away to look at her face + give her a kiss + a hug, and repeat.
If you tell her you love her, she will pucker and smack her lips repeatedly, like she loves you too + is showing you with kisses. 
I hope I never forget her exactly as she is today.
Isla Jane, my prize, i love you!
