It’s a beautiful spring day. Enjoy!
This picture right here is the reason why I started blogging. The years when Emma, Megan and Chloe were little went by in such a blur. This picture represents one of the every day moments that I love so much. I just wish I knew what we were talking about when I took the picture. Megan was about 2. Emma must have been off at school, Chloe was probably sitting in her infant seat or napping in her crib. I don’t remember. I’m sure Jon came home on time that night, we helped Emma with her homework and I made something barely edible for dinner. I’m sure the 2 littles acted crazy as they did every night before they went to bed. I’m sure Chloe watched from her little seat and took it all in. I’m sure that I crashed in bed that night exhausted from taking care of 3 babies all day. I wish I would have blogged about it then too. I have these pictures scattered throughout the house and some home videos that I can look back on but it’s the conversations and real moments that I wish I could remember.
Today Jon will come home a little late, the girls will have homework that I can’t help them with and I will cook something completely edible…..I’ve improved over the years. They will still act crazy before bed, because that’s what kids do. I will still crash in bed tonight because I’m busy taking care of my 4 gorgeous, growing girls all day long.
I will continue to take pictures of the girls eating lunch, although I’m sure it wont be pb and fluff with a Hi-C juice box. I will continue to take videos and record all of our moments because it’s something that I love to do. I will continue trying to help with homework at night, I will wait with dinner done every night for Jon to come home and I will enjoy their craziness at bed time for a few more years. I love having all of these memories to look back on. I love watching them grow and I’m excited for their future. I just wish it would slow down a little. I’m starting to think that Motherhood should come with some sort of warning label.
Here are a few moments from our April Vacation. Enjoy!
Last week was April vacation for Jon and the girls. I took the week off from blogging and now I’m trying to remember everything we did! We started the week by getting the girls their passports. Marlene booked our St. Marten trip this week and Chloe has been counting down the days!
Most of the week was spent outside so I have LOTS of pictures!! We took the kids hiking a couple of times. We brought out the bikes for the girls to ride. We took a trip down to visit our parents for the day on Wednesday. The girls got to spend the day playing with Colton. We met the Desmarais girls at the zoo on Friday while Jon took Emma to look at colleges. We went shopping for dresses and shoes on Saturday. We took our first Drive in Movie trip of the season on Saturday night. We saw The Croods. We finished off vacation week by watching Megan’s first lacrosse game.
That’s my number 30!
I wish vacation weeks didn’t go by so fast. We’re now counting down the days until summer vacation.
I’m getting addicted to Vimeo! I haven’t taken too many pictures this week due to the fact that we have the flu in the house. UGH! So I put this together yesterday. Enjoy!
This video goes with my earlier post
We spent most of our weekend outside. Jon and I have been walking and hiking a LOT lately!! Yesterday we went in the morning and then again in the afternoon.
A bear track?
