a good day for...

A good day for photos....  (My cool SIL's post- a photo shoot of our favorite 6mo little boy- reminded me of the joy of indulging myself in a long, fun photo shoot of our (spectacular) kids.)






A good day for a scooter and slides...




 A good day for a little big brother to push the little love...

A good day for gifts...  (thanks Yeye and Naia Nai!!!)


A good day for friendship and hugs and finally! looking at the camera without some goofy kink in a neck or finger up a nose...  (Honestly, I think this is the first sweet photo I've ever gotten of these two together.  This shot makes my heart skip a beat I just delight in it sooo, delight in these two precious kids sooo much!)  

A good day for closing the blog up quick and snuggling with my man...

recently...


Recently... it's been busy.  I think I owe our "Camera Grandma" some shots from this side of the globe. 

Here's a bit of an afternoon on the back patio... Everyone wanted a cuddle with Vivi...






 Marian has defintely arrived in the 4 year-old, we can hear the angels singing, bit more evident responsibility stage of life.   She is still our firecracker but somehow a tiny more mature one these days.  We are oh so very in love with this girl... with all these sweet kiddos!


John has developed a new dance thing this season...  When he's in the mood, this new grove looks like a mix of mock slow mo ice skating and imaginary gooey mud stepping....  there's a still shot to launch your imagination.



This little girl has begun her career of roaring like the prettiest little lion.  (And she's nearly sitting up all by herself too.)





Bachantical Garden

We visited the little bit botanical, little bit enchanted garden here in town last week.    



 May was absolutely delighted to carry this bottle with her hair she accidentally locked under the lid.


 It was a sweet afternoon there to enjoy the flowers and leaves and birds singing, with this cute couple who are tutoring Matt and I in language.  Oh they are such precious friends and great teachers.
