I am finally getting these pictures up of the girls we took over a month ago... I spaced it actually.... Anyhoo aren't these darling girls?!! I just love them so much and was glad I found outfits I wanted them to wear without going out to buy a new outfits for the pictures. We aren't exactly rich and have been on "college student" status earnings. I was also able to get baby pictures with Taylor for FREE! My friend's friend is starting a website for babies and I was asked to be a model for the site! How exciting! Its nothing big really but I had fun! They will go on The Mommy Brand site (not yet running but soon). My mom will be selling car seat canopies, ties for boys and cute dresses for girls. I will post the link once the site is up and running.
This last week we took an afternoon trip to Canandaigua and did window shopping without actually buying anything. We had fun walking around enjoying the nice sunny weather. It was also Brooklyn's last week of preschool for her 3's class. The parents got to go for the last day and be presented with memory books. The memory books are amazing! I was not expecting that at all and now I have pictures of Brooklyn during her whole school year in preschool! She has learned a lot and has had lots of fun. Earlier in the week the class had a swimming day and Brooklyn had so much fun with the big bubbles they had there. I can't believe she will be in the 4's class in the fall!
Sixteen years ago I totally biffed while rollerblading down the Alpine Cemetery near my home (on the sabbath and never again rollerbladed on the sabbath, hahaha). It was actually pretty hilarious and my friends couldn't stop laughing. Well.... I had never fallen again until Saturday morning! Matt and I were both pushing a stroller (each) while rollerblading. Because the stroller kept veering to the right I went with it and rolled the stroller into the bushes on the Erie Canal! I rolled with the stroller and got stuck underneath it...laughing! Brooklyn wasn't hurt thankfully but she cried because it scared her. I got some scratches but nothing like the cemetery hill incident! Hahahaha It was actually so funny and Matt couldn't stop laughing! I wish we had brought the camera but you'll have to envision for yourself how we must have looked after the fall. Of course I was embarrassed as people stopped to help and I pretty much send them on their way... nicely of course! It was a good time nevertheless!
Matt is now in California with a couple of his friends (coaches at the U of R). He got a free trip (thanks to Greg!) to California and so they decided to go see the Angels and Airwaves band. They have been visiting all the different beaches and just hanging out having fun! I miss him lots but I am glad he was able to go!
Enjoy the pictures!
As I was posting this blog, Brooklyn who was supposed to be in bed came downstairs and said, "Mom, I have a gift for you...." I replied, "What gift?" She sweetly said, "Its LOVE". My heart just melted and she came to me and gave me a great big hug... I sure love this sweet angel. She has been telling me the past few days, "Mom, you're the best mommy in the whole wide world!" aaahhhssss... need I say more...
I love this.... I have several pictures of Brooklyn giving baby Taylor a kiss on the top of her head...
My little ballerinas!
She is so full of life and energy!
What a model!
Sisters make the best friends!
We are headed to Utah on June 16th! Brooklyn wanted to create another count down chain. She decided she wanted to do a caterpillar!
Last day of 3's preschool. I love the memory book! She did so well and I just love her!
Brooklyn has been playing in her swimsuit, longing for the day for the pool to open! It finally opened over the weekend! We went today and she had a blast! I will post pictures soon.
Brooklyn loves it when we babysit her friends! This is Bella and she comes from such a cute family! She has an older sister Avery who was on a date with her cool mom, rock climbing! I need to be more like Janette! The girls were having so much fun chilling with Matt as he was making them laugh!
Searching for bugs!
Both giving me the evil eye...
A small music shop in Canandaigua (Canandaigua is one of the five finger lakes and is such a beautiful town) of course we had to stop in a look around! Matt is doing well with practicing his bass. He just loves it and practices when he can. He feels lucky that I am deaf and don't tell him to turn it down all the time! haha I love that he is learning something new.
Balancing on the railroad tracks. Brooklyn is pretty good at it!
On our way home we stopped for a vanilla cone at McDonalds. Brooklyn has been having so much fun and in return she gets so tired! She fell asleep with the cone in her hand!
Sweet girl, she has been having so much fun!
