  • the bronx zoo

    We took the kids to the Bronx Zoo as a fun Spring Break treat. I haven’t been there since I was probably about Emily’s age. It was a lot of fun. We did miss the lions and gorillas but the monorail doesn’t open until May so it’s a ton of walking and we accomplished what…

  • dance costumes 2012 | personal family shots

    This past weekend were dance pictures at my daughters’ studio. Even though I end up doing my own at home because I love using solid backdrops and choosing a complimenting color, I always buy a package at the studio too. They hang each child’s photo in the front window and the girls get a kick…

  • happy 100th day + before and after

My older kids were very excited to get to bring Grace to school which they sometimes do, but more so…

  • grace grows up, yet again | a week of firsts

    This is Grace’s last week of being two. She’s so ready to be 3 on Friday! We have grand birthday plans too. Since her older brother & sister are in school all day, the two of us are planning to have a little fun. First she wants to bring munchkins to her friends at school.…
