Swagger Wagon

I got pride in my ride. I drive a Sienna, which I can now call my Swagger Wagon. You know you're jealous.

Father's Day

Birdy playing in her room

My birthday was great. Birdy even scribbled a note on my birthday card.
She was excited about my new iPhone case.

We went to a friend's birthday party and Birdy had lots of fun!!

My 2 kiddos.

Daddy's girl.

I love this picture of Birdy! I love her smile, the colors, the sweet bokeh in the background. Just love it!!

What I Want...

Tomorrow is my birthday and this is what I want to buy myself with my birthday money. It may not look exciting, but if you're a photographer, you know that a new lens makes a big difference. I'm really trying to learn how to take better pics using manual settings, and this lens is going to help. I can't wait to play around with it. Now, if I could just find time to go shopping.

Playing at church

Birdy loves going to church. She loves the music. She loves seeing all her cousins. She loves playing with her friends. Church is her second home. She's very comfortable there. On Easter Sunday, while playing, she crawled into an empty shelf and made it her space. Too cute!

Project Life Tuesday: Week 23

Buddy had his dedication ceremony at church on Sunday night. My dad dedicated him and we had all the family there, too. He did really well and never cried or fussed. Of course, it helps that he loves being with his Pop-Pop.

Nakia & Mari are his Godparents. (And Birdy's, too.)

This week has been all about potty training Birdy. She has made major progress!
I'm still too leary to put undies at night, but that has a lot to do with me not wanting to get up and change sheets. :) She's ran out of spots on her potty chart but still wants to put stickers when she goes so, she just gets a sticker for herself. When she's done pulling her pants up, she says, "Now sticker."

These are Birdy's cute little undies. Of course, the Dora ones are her faves.

Buddy got his first pair of Vans. They look so cute on him! Took him a while to get used to wearing them, but once he got it, he was walking all over.

Project Life tuesday: Week 22

My Birdy. Look at that face. So precious. When did she become a little girl and not my little baby?

Celebrating the dedication of "M", our little Goddaughter with our friends Nakia & Mari. They are also the Godparents to our kids!

Birdy watering my plants for me.

Buddy has been pulling hair lately. He's finally learned the concept of "payback"!

I cooked some fresh green beans that I bought at the Farmer's Market. Delicious.

My kids are like me. They do not like their nap interrupted.

I really want to make these yummy treats. I might have to wait 'til July 4th, though. Aaron doesn't like cake and my dad doesn't really eat sweets. So, these wouldn't be the highlight of their Father's Day. But if I make them for July 4th, I can share them with everyone who likes cupcakes, brownies, and cookies. If you haven't seen the instructions for creating these, go to now! Aren't they just so cute?!!
