It’s Just Pictures! (Just Some Recent Photos)

With Easter last weekend we had a lot of great photo opportunities. I shared some of them on my Easter post and a couple more on posts throughout the week but here are the rest! Last Saturday we went to a great event in Blue Springs, Missouri (just outside Kansas City). It was sponsored by local church groups and a few businesses in the area and featured inflatables, games, live music, an Easter egg hunt for the children, and lunch for everyone who participated. My toddler enjoyed every bit of it (so much so that we had a hard time getting her out of the bounce house). Take a look:

Here’s one of my absolute favorites from Easter Sunday. I took this one at home while C was climbing up and down our stairs counting:

“One-Two-Three-Five-Seven-Nine-Ten!”

Somehow when we’re counting with her she remembers four, six, and eight but when she’s going at it solo the numbers seem to slip her mind.

C turned two years old on Saturday and so I thought I’d share a few recent pictures…Enjoy!

The Gateway To The West: Our Trip to St. Louis (With Pictures)

We had the opportunity to spend some time in St. Louis on Monday and enjoyed a trip to The Gateway Arch. I’d been there before but not since childhood and this was the first time either my husband or my daughter (that goes without saying) had ever seen it up close. My husband didn’t believe me when I told him that the Arch sways when it’s windy but he got to see first hand what I meant during our trip….Here are some pictures that I took.

It’s Just Pictures Series: The Toddler

I thought I would post some pictures I took yesterday evening of C. A little back story…I was making dinner and she climbed up onto the kitchen table and started drinking out of my water-glass. Instead of getting upset and making her get down right away, I embraced the moment. It isn’t often that she actually sits still long enough for me to snap some good pictures so I’ll take what I can get, know what I mean?!C will be two in less than a month, hard to believe time has gone by so quickly! Don’t you just wish it would slow down sometimes?!

On an unrelated note (before I forget)…I got special mail today from Nature Box, an awesome California-based company. I was contacted by them to do a review on their products and am so excited to share my thoughts with all of you (and to offer you a special surprise) so be on the lookout for that post the first week of February!

Where I’ve Been…

I went to bed last night with the promise that I would remind myself to write a post letting you all know where I’ve been the last couple of days…You may not have even noticed that I was gone or you may have wondered why I skipped out on Friday Fictioneers this week, either way I’m going to give you an update. A good friend of mine is having a baby (yay!) and is due in February. I had the privilege of co-hosting a small get together in her honor today and have been working on it during my free time the past few days. I’m planning to do a few tutorials but, in the meantime, I thought I’d share some pictures.

“No! No, Santa!”

We took C to see Santa this morning…as you can probably imagine (give that I have a 21 month old) it did not go so well. She hates Mr. Claus, take a look:
