Going Green

I consider us a fairly "green" family... we do as much as we can. We use safe cleaning products, chemical free kid shampoos & soaps, try to eat organic when we can and recycle like crazy. But there are just some things you can't control... like when Aunt Jacquelyn shows up with fun bath fizzies that dye your bath water crazy colors. So we went "green" tonight...

Whoa, is this really green bath water?

Oooh, so cool!

Its cool being green!

We took a family trip to Discovery Place over the weekend... an impromptu last minute decision but super fun. It was the grand opening of their new exhibits & it was packed... did not know this when we planned our trip. Thank goodness Daddy was there to help because 3 kids, a big crowd, lots of wild toddlers around and a baby boy who needed to eat baby food & have a bottle while we were there would have been all but impossible to handle solo. We survived. Court was covered in food head to toe, the girls were soaking wet from the water table and Mom & Dad were tired, but we will definitely be going back again this summer. A great cool indoor activity to beat the heat.

Ready, set, squirt!

How is this ball floating in the air?

Silly girl...
Not sure if you are Tyler or Harper... ha!

The wind tunnel!

Daddy & his girls checking out the jellyfish.

Beads... girls were in heaven.

Court getting snuggles from Daddy.
He was a trooper & did not mind the baby food in his hair & all over his clothes. We did get some stares though...

Harder than it looks!!!

Great family day....

Bye Bye Beach!

We have wrapped up our first beach trip of the summer... it was a blast! The girls are the perfect age for the beach this year. They loved every minute of it & I am afraid we are done with naps for good. 10 days without a nap and early bed time seems to suit the girls these days... mom & dad not so much! We are already looking forward to heading back to the beach in just a few weeks.

Tyler was entranced by the pinching!

Berry Pickin'

Still at the beach, but took a break from the sand & surf for a little local treat... blueberry & blackberry picking! Girls were all about filling their buckets up to the top. It was close to 100 degrees but well worth the fun.

Boatin' Beach Babes

The girls are officially beach bums this summer. They wake up ready to go... no naps, they just power through the day making sand castles, splashing in the ocean, swimming in the pool, riding on the boat, feeding the birds and eating popsicles (lots of them!). They go so hard all day they have been in bed before Court the past 2 nights... 6pm!

Harper & Tyler

Cheering on Daddy wakeboarding!

And Court, falls right asleep on the boat every time.

Lots of new things.

One happy kid!
