Loved having Poppa and Rara here for the girls’ dance recital!
I thought this picture of the girls getting in our car after dress rehearsal was too cute!
I love finding pictures the girls take with my phone!
Mike found this amazing movie theater with reclining chairs we tried out when my parents were in town. They were a huge hit!
Practicing Rose’s dance recital hair. It was tricky!
Dress-up and princess party where Anna Kate got to see Bekah!
Anna Kate all dressed up for a princess meet and greet with Vivienne.
They are so cute and had so much fun!
Every time we go in a store, Rose asks me to take her picture with a mannequin. She’s so silly! Payton was a sweet dance friend for Rose this year!
Rose had such a great dance class. Here they are after dress rehearsal. She and Kinsley made fast friends!
No mirrors the week of recital in the studio! The girls always look forward to drawing on it before and after class. Rose made me yogurt with strawberries mixed in that she asked me to cut. Then she asked me to write, “Mom loves Rose” on her writing board. I so loved our slow days together this spring.
She loved volunteering with me at school this May. This was pajama day!
The sky looked like this pretty much every day for the entire month of May. We got so much rain here in Texas!
Rose makes me laugh!
Cute birthday picture celebrating Vivienne!
Rose loves to dress herself, and her choices are always highly entertaining! She loves chocolate yogurt too!
I enjoy working in our yard so much! It’s a great stress reliever!
One spring day, Rose and I went on a walk/tricycle ride to have an afternoon tea party.
She dressed herself again and didn’t forget her lipstick!
I love this happy girl!
I needed the sun so much this day! It was perfect!
Here’s some of the flooding only a block away from our neighborhood. It was crazy there for a while!
Here’s another couple pictures of how high the water got in May.
One night when we were working in the yard, Anna Kate found a doodle bug that had her babies in Anna Kate’s hand! It was amazing!
Noelle and I are always playing with her hair. It’s our little girl time when we chat it up! Mike read the book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up:The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” and I found our junk drawer looking like this, with sharpened pencils and all! Surprisingly, it’s stayed pretty organized! He’s organizing our house, one drawer at a time, and I’m a huge fan!
Loved this summer picnic food! Ham and apples is an easy meal that we all enjoy (finished dish below)!
Here’s some really great healthy food options I enjoyed last month! We signed the Food Revolution Day petition and are hoping for a healthier food culture in our country. It’s really important to us to try to feed our kids with foods that make them feel healthy and strong, not sluggish and tired. We definitely have treats, but we are aware of what we are eating and try to limit carbs and sugars as much as we can (vacation not included).
Noelle’s new orthodontist has a really cool silly hat collection! Noelle wanted to try them all on but only got about half-way through them.
I love this IG post by Ed Sheeran! It made a lot of sense to me. Noelle loves this yard and when we went on a walk, she just had to lay in the perfect grass, lol!
These set lists are amazing!
I never want to forget Rose as a toddler! She’s full speed ahead, or fingers in her mouth on her last leg, there’s no in between. We always thank her for being a part of our family because we need all of this in our lives!
