Expensive Tastes

Wouldn't you know it. Lydia won't touch chicken nuggets (not that I mind), but she LOVES Alaskan King Crab.

A photo shoot for Daddy

The kids looked so darling the other day, I thought I would take some photos for Shane for Father's Day.

Collin spent much of the morning eating his clothes.

This is the pose Lydia takes whenever she wants to hold Collin. It is hard to say no to that face.




Okay, seriously, my kids are cute.


Looks like the shoot is over.

And of course, Lydia gets whatever bribe I have offered to get her to sit still and smile. In this case, a whole box of Cheez-its. (After a few handfuls I tell her we should save some for later and I return it to the pantry.) I have no problem with bribery when it is for posterity's sake :) Happy Father's Day!

Pool Party

It is June and 90 degrees outside.


So send the kids outside....

And moms stay watching from the air-conditioned house.

Collin's First Outing

Lydia's friend Isabella was having a birthday party and we thought it would be a nice opportunity for Collin (Mommy) to get out of the house for a bit and enjoy the amazing weather.




Busting out the sun hat.




Lydia too. (My mom has discovered that Gymboree is a Grandmother's succubus. Not only did she buy Lydia this outfit to match her new swimsuit, but Lydia has matching panties on under the dress. :)


Shane had to do a lot of coaxing to get her near the water.



Once she got in, she loved it.











The Curious Case of Benjamin Button?




Enjoying Pizza at Coolidge park.




You can see Shane in the background with little Collin. Collin seems to like the sun. In small doses.






Lydia rode the Carousel! This is a big deal for her. Check out the photo below to see the first time she rode it....








Collin decided to sit this ride out.
