Last day of schoooooooool!!! Ivy is SO excited about summer and so am I! This year flew by and Ivy and Leo grew leaps and bounds! Leo’s last day was actually last Wednesday, but Ivy’s last day is today!
Here’s the first day of school in September (that post here)! Leo’s hair is sooo blond and long! Cutie! And oh gosh, I remember Ivy wearing two different shoes all the time! Had totally forgotten about that! So funny.
And here’s the last day of school!
Leo grew up a ton!! So cute! His hair is turning so much darker! And he’s so much taller! Ivy hasn’t changed too much. Both cuties!
Faye is 11 months old!!! Good grief, almost a 1 year old, EEEEEK! I simply cannot believe it. It’s gone by so fast! She’s such a sweet bundle of joy and we love her so much.
Faye is getting goofier and goofier every day! She’s really coming into her personality and I love to see what is new with her each day. Her favorite thing to do right now is make tooting noises with her lips and mouth, she does it all day! Then Leo joins in, then Ivy joins in, and then there’s so much spit all over the place! It’s pretty funny though :)
Today I’m featuring a fellow Sioux Falls Mama whom I love very much, the gorgeous Ashley Flynn, whose talents have taken her to writing and publishing her very own children’s book! COOLEST GIG EVER! As much as we read around here, how fun would it be to read your very own book to your children! So special!
Ashley Flynn is an incredible woman and special friend, super wife to Colby, and dedicated Mama to precious little Nina. She has a sought-after ability to create witty and loving rhymes and now she has taken that talent into children’s books, publishing her FIRST BOOK, titled My Favorite Job is You. Her blog is also SO much fun to read! She has such wit and charm and is constantly making me laugh with her hilarious parenting stories!
Time for a girl’s trip! I hadn’t left Faye yet so I was so overdue for a getaway! I was so ready for a some time away with long-time girlfriends that make you laugh till you cry! And also excited to go shopping and actually try on clothes without kids and eat at some hip fun restaurants while devouring delicious food!
We have a group of 10 girls from high school (Sioux Falls Roosevelt!) that were besties and we’re all still close! We try to get together once a year for a girl’s trip and this year we did Minneapolis. Six of the girls still live in Sioux Falls, three in Minneapolis, and one in Chicago, so Minneapolis is a close pick!
Circus time!!!! I LOVE the Circus! The wild animals, the sloppy snow cones, the sticky (yet delicious) cotton candy, the death-defying acts, the crazy clowns, and all the flashing lights! It’s so much fun. Brings back such memories of being a kid and I love every second of it! This was the best year yet. All the acts were amazing!
Not sure Leo likes the clowns (haha), but Ivy does!!! :)
