Giant Cookies, Tummy Woes and Rainbows

before & after
Before & After

Daddy came home this week and we were so excited to see him, we gave him all our germs. Now we’re knee deep in to our second round of this bug. It seems to have afflicted everyone, but me … holding out as long as I can … disinfecting everything and trying to make everyone feel better. Crossing my fingers this one passes me by, there are only 27 more days till my first 1/2 marathon and I can’t afford to miss anymore runs or get sick right now …

There were a few bright moments in our otherwise dreary week, we still managed to sneak out for what is quickly becoming our favorite part of the week.

date with the littles I like to think of it as a date with my littles, we sneak away one day during the week after school to walk and talk and check out books and smell flowers and giggle and laugh and just reconnect with each other a bit. It’s such a great way to break up the week and give ourselves something special to look forward to. We just sort of go with the flow and do whatever comes naturally. This week we indulged — a new book, a giant chocolate cookie (split 4 ways) and the most amazing pink lemonade you’ve ever tasted! We rode elevators, listened to our echoes and tried to name all of the flower species we saw along the way.

Oh yeah, and we had the most colorful party EVER!

Can’t wait to tell you all about it … once we’re all better that is …

So what’s going on in your world this week?

Silly, yet serious. That’s the best way to describe this little one right now. One minute she is all smiles and giggles and and the next she’s soulful; deep in contemplation, so quiet and demure. She’s changing everyday, yet it is me who seems foreign […]

Life in an Instant: Screen Free Week

This week was “Screen Free” week, a week where families are encouraged to turn off screens and turn on life. We spent less time watching TV & more time watching things like this … I like to think I don’t let my children watch too […]

  • Hope you’re all feeling better, especially since you have a 1/2 marathon coming up. I’m always in awe of women who run that far. I think it’s wonderful. Looks like a great little “date” with your kids. My daughter just asked today if we couldn’t have a girl’s time where we walk to the bakery and get a donut. Such fun times.

  • oh NO!!! hope your body can stay strong & not get sick. so sorry for your sweet family. just hate it when the kids are sick.

    you still manage to be uplifting for your readers even when the family is sick. you are one amazing mama!

    lots of love coming your way!

  • Awww.. hope your hubby and the kiddos are feeling better soon, but sounds like you had an otherwise fantastic week! The 3 year old and I have been enjoying “kidnapping” my hubby from work on Fridays to have lunch together — we look forward to it all week long. :-) Best of luck w/ the 1/2 marathon, my friend! I’ll be cheering you on!!!

  • Im sorry to hear about the Sickness. Hope everyone is healed soon and your half is awesome. Cool cool cool party decorations!

  • I’m so happy to have found one another and your blog. Your photography is beautiful and I may have to steal your beautiful birthday idea for my daughter’s party coming up soon. Feel better.
