Snapshot Story

In this daily post prompt, we are asked to grab a photo album and write a story about the first picture we see of ourselves. In my photo album on my computer, this is the first photo I saw. Taken on the balcony of the Hale Koa hotel in Honolulu, we were so excited to… Continue reading Snapshot Story

Make My Tummy Go Gooey! (Aka the post with 1000 pictures)

For as long as I can remember, I've had a fear of heights. I remember climbing along rooftops with my father as he was building houses when I was really young, but since about 4 or 5 years old, heights and I do not get along. As a kid, we went to carnivals when they came to… Continue reading Make My Tummy Go Gooey! (Aka the post with 1000 pictures)

Just Imagine

There are some days when I just don't feel like working out. When the warmth of my comforter feels much more inviting than wrestling a sports bra, slipping on workout clothes, consuming fuel and heading out into what still feels like the middle of the night. But imagine what I miss when I don't get… Continue reading Just Imagine

And….The Honeymoon Is Over

Well, not really. It's just back to work and regular life. We've had the best time over the last few days just spending time as a family and reconnecting and getting out and about! The 4th of July was great - celebrated by going to a parade (complete with puking Jacob as he gagged on a… Continue reading And….The Honeymoon Is Over

So I found this: It's a playground next to the track! There is absolutely NO reason I couldn't get out there! As… Continue reading Joy

Wonder-full Wednesday

I have never been so grateful to sleep in my own bed as I am after a stay in a hotel. Yes, more FWPs (First World Problems) but I have to say - if you are thinking of buying a Tempurpedic (or a Select Comfort, I've heard) really consider all options. They are the BEST… Continue reading Wonder-full Wednesday

The Walk

About a week ago (I think?!  Two weeks? The days are starting to blend together a bit for me lately 🙂 we went on a walk on the trails near our house. We went with Grandma and Grampa and had a GREAT time! It was, however, a groundhog-day sort of walk. The kind of walk… Continue reading The Walk

Welcome To Preschool!

The first day of preschool!!! Wahoo! Jacob was excited to start school, however was NOT excited about me trying to take pictures of him. (And you'll have to indulge me a bit - most of this is for Eric as I can only email him about 2 pictures at a time - much easier to… Continue reading Welcome To Preschool!

A Little of This, A Little of That…..

I'm just loving having a garden this year. While we didn't plant that much, it's amazing to me just how much we've been able to harvest! We've been eating snap peas like crazy people! And look what was hiding... A few cukes!! The pumpkins are growing OUT of the garden!!   The kids wanted to… Continue reading A Little of This, A Little of That…..
