Fall Fun at Los Rios Ranchos

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

A couple weeks ago M and I took the kids to go apple picking in Oak Glen. This is my idea of fun (hello cute photo opps!) and M's idea of not so fun.

We got off to a rough start since it was almost 90 degrees and we both had sweaty babies attached to our body in the direct sun. I'm pretty sure there is nothing worse than being sweaty-hot while trying to help your wife get the "perfect shot" of the kids. Ha ha. Poor guy. I could tell our adventure was going down in flames fast so we hopped in the car to find a more comfortable location.

Just a few hundred feet down the road we pulled into Los Rios Ranchos and got the BEST parking spot in the whole place! Instantly our mood was lifted and we were able to spread out our blanket in the shade and enjoy some apple pie, cider, and a carmel apple. It ended up being super relaxing and the kids loved crawling/running around on the lawn.

Everly loves her...I promise ;) 

We ended the day with a walk around the farm to check out the butterfly garden. Blair was all about it and it really was beautiful.

It ended up being a great family day and we really need to do things like this more often! Maayyybe with a little less heat though. ;)

The Tooth Fairy Doesn't Knock

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

I know a certain five-year-old who is dying to lose a tooth. She's a firm believer in all things magical (unicorns, mermaids, fairies you name it!) so it was no surprise to me that she was enamored by her new tooth fairy book, The Tooth Fairy Doesn't Knock by Funny Fable Productions.

This catchy book really appealed to her love of fantasy and the best part is that the kit comes with a miniature door for the Tooth Fairy to come through after you lose a tooth! Blair's, of course, is pink. And even though I don't see her losing a tooth till first grade (at least) she's got her door all set in her room...

She begged me to let her add stones below the door on the floor but with two one-year-olds crawling around I had to put the kabosh on that.

If you have a little one who loves make-believe as much as Blair does this is a must-have! Christmas is coming and I can't think of anything as exciting as Santa AND the Tooth Fairy arriving! ;)

The Museum of Ice Cream San Francisco

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

I've been trying to get tickets to the Museum of Ice Cream in LA for a while and was having no luck. I found out that the MOIC was opening in San Francisco this fall and I was not about to let the opportunity pass me by! We snagged some tickets and Blair and I flew up north to attend. We maaaaay have even ditched school for the occasion! School or ice cream? Not a tough choice. ;) 

We had so much fun and I know that Blair really enjoyed her Mama time all to herself. We ate our fair share of ice cream and had fun taking pictures in all the exhibits. And if nobody already has dibs I think I'll be opening a Museum of Donuts pretty soon! ;) 

I have quite a few more photos to edit and upload so stay tuned! 

Baby Poster Store

Thursday, September 28, 2017

The twins are at such a fun age and I have been loving my time with them lately. And while I'm looking forward to watching them grow and learn new things I know I'm going to miss this stage (who am I?!). I was always rushing to get to the next stage with Blair but knowing these are my last babies has me feeling all the feels!

I was excited when the Baby Poster Store sent me life size versions of Cal and Everly's exact size at birth. They are such fun and unique ways to remember how tiny they were! Plus they look super cute hanging in their rooms. :) 

In the corner of each poster I printed their life verses. Romans 12:12 for her and Hebrews 11:1 for him. At the bottom of each poster their names are printed along with their weight, height, and time of birth. The place of birth is also listed. 

Baby Poster Store is offering a 15% off discount code to you when used by the end of October. Use code "NATYOURS" to snag your own poster and remember your tiny babes forever! 

Costumes for Twins Plus One

Thursday, September 21, 2017

I know at some point the twins will want to choose their own Halloween costumes but until then I am determined to have some fun deciding for them!

Last year I convinced Blair to be a donut (instead of a princess or butterfly) and the twins were happy being milk and coffee...

This year I have a couple ideas but would love some suggestions from you guys! Let me know if you think of anything cute in the comments below!

Cal Poly Love

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Real talk...it is hard to find time to blog! I know it seems silly for a stay at home mom to say that but between Blair's homework, sports, my gym time, errands, chores etc. the day gets away from me! And sometimes I just can't muster up the energy to do it once they are all in bed. So, I'm not quitting on you guys...just trying to figure out how to balance it all!

So far Blair has been off to a great start at school. She loves her teacher, enjoys the routine of school, and always looks forward to pizza day. :)

Last week some friends went to our old college town (San Luis Obispo) and brought the twins back some school spirit wear. The weather is finally cooling off here so we were able to enjoy our new gear while we grabbed some donuts on Saturday morning.

You can tell that Cal is really itching to move on his own and he's so so close! Everly is still content pushing her walker around the house and being held by Daddy. :)

Cal's jeans: AG (from Nordstrom anniversary sale) girl's jeans but you wouldn't know!
Twins' shoes: freshly picked
Evie's bow: Little Elle Boutique
Blair's Jeans: Hudson (Nordstrom anniversary sale)

Both jeans are sold out but check out @tattrdthreads on Instagram...she has the CUTEST worn jeans for littles!

Thirty Five and Lime

Friday, September 8, 2017

It's all about teamwork over here (sometimes)! Blair is training Everly to feed her snacks while she "reads" her stories. Seeing their relationship grow has been so fun and makes my mama heart burst.

Blair always gets super giddy when she gets to match Everly so these outfits were a huge win! They are made out of the softest organic fabric and the print is so girly.
