Backyard tea party


My mom got C a tea set for Christmas and I'm impressed with how much use it gets during playtime. I wonder what it is about having tea that little girls seem to love recreating over and over again. Is it the ritual of setting everything up? Or feeling like a "big girl" who drinks tea and chats with friends? Whatever it is, it's adorable. This little tea party was just us girls but other typical participants include her T-Rex stuffed doll.

Growing Butterflies

 We don't have a dog or any cats. But we do have a fish pond at our place and he have to fed the fish and turtles that live there every day. So when people ask C if she has pets she says she has fishies, turtles, and butterflies :) Butterflies because we have grown 2 sets of butterflies now from caterpillars and C loves it. She is obsessed with her "butterfly friends" and looks for the ones we've released in the yard every day. I'll be ordering a third batch of caterpillars soon so we can keep going!

Memorial Day weekend 2016


The joys of a 3-day weekend! Because it also means a 4-day work week :) We stayed local which meant hiking, visiting with friends, and enjoying time at home. Nothing major but it was just right.


This little nugget loves her daddy. She's his mini-me.


We finally did it! We showed C Star Wars. We have family that are waiting for their kids to be older but asking aorund my group of friends many of the 3-4 year olds have seen it (and loved it). Ours also loved it and has been talking about it ever since. Her favorite characters are Darth Vader, Princess Leia, and the stormtroopers which goes to show how appealing the bad guys can be (Vader's cape!). She also loved Leia braid and bun combo from the end scene.


Enjoying an evening the backyard.


Still into Queen Elsa.
