This is Definitely the Best Weekend of My Entire Life

It was only Saturday morning when Juliana uttered those words while eating breakfast; most of the weekend was still ahead at this point. But I have to agree it was a pretty good holiday weekend for her. It is the type of weekend that I hope she remembers – packed with friends and fun!

Red, White and Blue


Once again Scott and my Dad took the kids to a classic 4th of July community parade this year. They were dressed in their red, white and blue but they left for the parade before I could attempt a picture of the 3 of them together.

You Capture: Easter

I posted some pictures of the kids in their Easter Sunday outfits last week. Saturday was a busy day of Easter activities. Mid-morning we went outside and played with bubbles and waited and waited.

Christmas Morning


I was so excited for Christmas morning this year!  At 5 Juliana knows what to expect and I love the look on her face when she walks into the living room each year.  This year was more dramatic then previous years.  We usually have presents piled under the tree, but we had everything hidden . . . → Read More: Christmas Morning

Happy Halloween


A Ring Master, a lion and a tiger.  The Ring Master had a great time – she has several years of experience now.  She lasted a little over an hour with one of her friends.  We only took Ruslan and Wyatt on our block for about half an hour.

Forest Hills Community Day


One of the things I love about Forest Hills is the annual 4th of July Community Day.  Since the 4th was on a Sunday this year, they moved the event to July 5th.  So I loaded up the van and we met Scott’s parents at the park for a few hours.  Juliana . . . → Read More: Forest Hills Community Day
