I Quit

I'm bummed that I quit.  It's so fun to be able to look back at the girls' lives and our adventures with them via this blog.  I stopped for a lot of reasons; it got too hard at some point to keep up with and it was overwhelming once I missed a bunch of things I wanted to post about; I take most pics with my phone and they're not great quality, yada, yada, yada.  So here's what I'm thinking-I'm going to do short posts here and there and not worry about documenting everything but just enough to look back and see what was generally going on at a certain time, pitiful pictures and all.  Here goes:

We have spent a looooot of time inside (see the indoor Cozy Coupes?) due to massive amounts of snowy days.

Just Us 4

We embarked on our first family vacation as a little family of four.  We've taken the girls lots of places in their little lives but always with other family.  This was just us, alone...uncharted territory.  Much to my (very pleasant) surprise it went amazingly well.  Not that I don't have faith in my children, I have just learned to lower my expectations of things such as, oh say-an eleven hour drive to Florida.  Under promise, over achieve.  I was nothing if not prepared.  I had mountains of snacks and diversions galore.  Some favorites were Color Wonder markers with Hello Kitty paper, colored paper tape, stickers, Barney videos...there was only one situation that led to an extreme amount of crying.  It involved fruits snacks.  We told them that if they closed their eyes and took a nap when they woke up they could have fruit snacks.  M went right to sleep.   Cb did not.  So M got her fruit snacks much to Clarabelle's dismay.  "Iiiiii waaaaant fruuuuuit snaaaaacks!! " was the theme of the following hour or two.  Accompanied by elephant tears, of course.  And Milly wasn't making it any easier on her, "I so sticky.  I need wipe.  Look Mommy, I ate them all!!"  Poor Clarabelle.  I felt so bad   Yea, she finally went to sleep and woke up to the promise of fruit snacks.  Lesson learned.  For me.  Not her.  That's just the drive.   More on vaca later.

I See Your True Colors

Last Saturday we took the girls to The Color Run in downtown Louisville, sponsored by Chevy.  We pushed the girls through clouds of colored dust and they totally loved it (but their expressions would say otherwise).  We will definitely have to do it again!  PS-the stroller came clean, clothes did not and a certain someone had to have the green professionally removed from her blonde hair.  :/

Strawberry Pickin'

Summer strawberries. Yum! @gallreinfarm. I don't think any of Milly's made it into her bucket. So glad I chose red for their outfits that day! The free petting zoo was actually the big hit of the day (I feed goat corn! Mimi and Cubba not eat corn goat eat corn. I pet. I eat corn?). Especially the random cat (Kitty cat come my home with me). I really have some crazy cat ladies on my hands.

It should be noted that the girls can now say each others names really well (it sounds like miwwy and cawabell) but are still choosing to call each other Mimi and Cubba. I love it.
