Traveling With Kids

Well, we made it to Connecticut! I semi-successfully flew across the country with two small kids in tow. And I will never do it again. Ever. But now I can say that I did and that is pretty cool I guess. I was so nervous about the trip that I started getting nauseous on the…

Drawing for Melinda

Here is a last minute Father’s Day drawing that I finished up last night! I got the photo from Melinda this weekend and I’m glad I was able to finish it in time. I’ll be sending it overnight to GA today.

Excitements

There are some exciting things going on around here. This Saturday, the kids and I will be flying to CT for a couple of weeks! I AM SO EXCITED! I love going home to visit. I am a little bit sad that Shaun won’t be joining us, but I know he’ll be enjoying his own…

365 Days Outside > 134-141

Day 134 Art in the Park! My new favorite event. We had so much fun walking around looking at all of the artwork. I left feeling super inspired! Juniper had a fun time in the kid area. She made a spider from clay and colored a puzzle. I’m thinking about doing a booth here next…

A Drawing for Sadie Dear

Yes, another drawing! I have been having so much fun with all of the drawings I have been working on. I finished this one up last night. It’s for Sadie Dear over at Brambles & Honey. Isn’t that little boy adorable?? I love his little face. Curly hair is a challenge, but BLONDE curly hair?…

Kids

I am in love with these two kids. Even when they drive me crazy all day, once they are in asleep in bed I usually just sit at the computer and look at pictures and videos of them and think about how much I love them. And I am totally biased, but you’ve got to…

Family Pictures

A couple of weeks ago, our friend Stefanie took some family photos for us. I was so excited I literally checked my email every 30 minutes this weekend to see if they were ready yet! When we got home from Art in the Park on Saturday, Stefanie had posted a preview of the images on…

365 Days Outside > 128-133

Day 128 While Dad finished up work on our compost bin, the kids and I played with some water buckets on the deck. They were seriously entertained! I’ll have to remember this for the hot summer days ahead. Day 129 We drove out to Hermann today for Shaun annual family reunion. We had a lot…

May Wrap Up

I’ve been a big fan of May and it’s a little sad to see it gone. It was a super busy month, filled with family time, yummy cupcakes and lots of firsts. We participated in our first neighborhood yard sale, had our first out-of-town house guests, planted our first garden, and had our first ever BBQ.…

Compost Bin

We built a compost bin this past weekend! Well, Shaun did most of the building. I helped by keeping him company in the garage in the middle of the night. AND I helped him move it, which was crazy because that thing is heavy. Here are the instructions he followed. It ended up being quite…
