Life Lately

A glimpse of our lives lately from my iPhone photo feed.  Every night before bed, I look at my pictures taken throughout the day and remember the best moments we shared.  
I love doing this, and I think it's sweet the kids love it too.


April was awesome + quick + packed full of fun.  It was also the first month of 2014 that we actually stayed home!   No trips to NYC, Hawaii, Tahoe or Disneyland this month...we were home and enjoyed it!  We planted a garden, had a sick day, had a rainy day (!!!), celebrated Easter in Folsom, turned THREE, visited Daddy at his San Francisco office, danced ballet, cheered on the Giants, and have basically enjoyed every moment of this beautiful season called spring.  The older I get, the more I think spring might be my season

Clockwise: Our sick day, when my two sickies piled into my bed and watched Frozen on the iPad vs watching on the couch on the big TV downstairs, just to be close to mommy.   The first time the ballerinas got to practice their dance in costume, which was the most magical thing that's happened in Lucca's life to date.  Jackson's homemade birthday crown, which he insisted on wearing all day so everyone would sing him Happy Birthday.  The start of our tiny backyard garden.  And my first time starting a garden from seeds, which is why there are SO MANY seedlings clumped together, because who knew you only were supposed to drop a couple in each pot rather than the whole packet?  :)

Lucca is learning how to read and it blows my mind.  She can read all her princess reading level 1 books out loud to us, and it takes everything in me to not give a standing ovation after each book.  I love watching my kids learn, and love seeing their look of pride and accomplishment on their beautiful faces.  I also love that Jackson is starting to not be afraid of worms and snails...but spiders and flies?  FREAK HIM OUT.

lucca: Wearing my baby blanket as her queen cape, while rambling on and on about her butler and the parade she is about to be in.
jackson: Pulled out the Super Why costume yet again.  And being the sweetest son in the whole world.
