Gerber sent us a lovely little package for Carly. I recently started Carly on more solid food and she was thrilled when I showed her that it was time to eat. It's been fun to introduce her to new flavors.
^^ I'm not sure this reaction up above.. but it was too funny not to share!
^^Mom.. I would like some more please.
I'm going to start counting..
Mom.. I'm being serious. I want more!
Thanks Gerber for the package! We are both huge fans of your products!
We have been fortunate that we have made some great friends pretty fast here in Washington. We all went to a small town (within a 20 min drive) to the West Valley U-pick Orchards. It was fun to pick apples and blueberries. The kids LOVED it. It was a little cooler weather today and the kids had so much space to run around through the orchards. It was really beautiful and a nice change of scenery.
^^^ So cute! Our friends took over 10 pounds of apples home
and we picked about 5 pounds!
^^All of the kids were professional taste testers.
All of the fruit that I have tried here has been so juicy and delicious!
^^ Miss Carly was a sport riding in the wagon through the orchards.
^^Miss Lydia trying out the apples ;)
^^Liam (in green) and Carter (in gray)
They have become instant best friends and they play so well together
^^Showing us their Ninja moves :)
After picking apples and blueberries.. of course the kids found the toys and piles of dirt to dig in. They were so dirty by the time they got in the car. It amazes me how entertaining a big pile of dirt can be to kids.
^^ I love this photo. They are snacking on their apples, having a deep
meaningful (3 year old conversation, I'm sure) while eating their freshly picked apples.
^^Dirty faces, Happy children
Carly loved gnawing on an apple just as much as the other kids. I can't wait to make something
yummy with the apples. I have a few ideas brewing in my head to make with the apples.. Apple cinnamon Crisps, apple pie, or caramel apples. yummmmmmm. I can't wait!
As I was digging through my closet looking for something to wear for church I realized that Carly and I have similar outfits. I have to match as much as I can before they get older and can tell me it's uncool. I put a little bit of moose in Carly's hair so her natural curl wouldn't frizz out.. Seriously makes me so happy that she has hair to play with. Carter saw us taking pictures and jumped in for one.. I'll take what I can get :)

We went to the Dollar Tree yesterday and came home with a few extra things we didn't go in there looking for. That happens way more than it should... Some of our goodies that we discovered were glow sticks. We were pretty disappointed when we got home and some of them didn't end up lighting up. With the few that did work, we had a lot of fun. It was fun for Carter to swing the lights around to make designs with it in my camera and it was fun for me to play around with lighting in my camera. That is what I would call a win win ;)
Matching is always a good idea. Always. Especially for siblings! I always thought I wanted a boy after Carter so that I could match them, but having a girl is just as fun when it comes to finding clothes that go together.
Ending with this picture.. This girl is filled with so much sass and I LOVE IT!
