Wordless Wednesday ~ First Day Of Kindergarten

1st day of school

She was excited, I was wistful, baby sister was beside herself. The first day of school has come and gone, and I now officially have a Kindergartener. She woke up Monday morning with a giant smile on her face that never wore off. After posing for pictures, she was off on the bus. As the bus […]

Wordless Wednesday ~ Recital

Ballet

We celebrated another year of dance last week at K’s second dance recital. This year she was in three numbers, that means three costume changes, oiy! But she loved every minute of it. I love to watch her dance because while she said she was nervous before the show, when it came down to show […]

Wordless Wednesday ~ Kindergarten Excitement

Joy

While my eyes welled up with tears watching my five year old joyfully bound up the steps of the school bus for a short first bus ride around the parking lot, she was all smiles and giggles. Practically leaping from the bus steps after the short ride she has been looking forward to for weeks […]

Wordless Wednesday ~ The New Swing Set

New Swingset

K turns five this week, and to celebrate we got her a swing set. She looked like a game show contestant when we told her about it, squealing with delight. She was even more excited when she came home one day to discover it installed. I predict a lot of time outside this summer, and […]

NASCAR Danica Patrick Jimmie Johnson

I’ve lived in Florida my whole life, but I have never been inside the Daytona International Speedway let alone been to the Daytona 500. (Sad, I know.) This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend my first race, and I had even more fun than I expected. Of course, it didn’t hurt that I […]

SeaWorld Dolphin Underwater

I never know what I am going to get when I hand over my camera to my four year old. It’s no wonder that she always wants to try her hand at photography, she’s had a camera in her face since birth. (Hi, I am Jen and I have a problem with taking too many pictures.) […]

Wordless Wednesday ~ Madame Tussaud’s

On my recent trip to LA, I had a chance to totally geek out with my friend Caryn from Rockin’ Mama at Madame Tussaud’s. We seriously had way too much fun. We would have stayed there all night if we could have. Here is a small taste of our photo journey. Thanks for the fun […]
