Growing Fast

My girl.  One of the last photos of her baby teeth.  Growing so so so fast.

The Silliest Girl

Love her so much!!

Little Models

My little models generously let me use them as subjects for a little photog practice!

Strawberry Picking

The girls love picking strawberries...mud and all!  I was hoping to pick other fruits this summer as well, but we didn't get to it.

Baby Loves Pepperoni

One evening, I was trying to get some photos of Alyse in her adorable "A" romper (which she has now refused to ever wear again), but she would not put down the bag of pepperoni. This girl loves her pepperoni. And now I have these photos to always remind me of that!


Little Snorkeler

Tessa was so excited to test out her new snorkel in the baby pool!

Still Trying...

Tessa is determined to learn how to ride a two-wheeler! She has been trying, but is not quite there yet. Keep at it, sweet girl!

Meanwhile, this little one is more like her brother and has no interest in bikes.  She'd much rather find a nice patch of grass and sit down with a good book!

It's the little things

After our tulip farm visit, we stopped at Cracker Barrel for lunch. Afterwards, Tessa really wanted to challenge Zaidy to a game of checkers.  It was a beautiful day, so we sat down on the porch and ended up staying there for over an hour.  Tessa had quite the lucky streak in checkers that day!

And this little one made her own kind of fun.  She ran back and forth across the porch singing and dancing.  She was having such a ball!

I love this last picture...even though Alyse is blurry.  She was teasing Zaidy and completely cracking herself up.  Such a fun, relaxing, simple time with family.  I'll always remember this day.

Tulip Farm

We took Nonna and Zaidy to a local tulip farm in May.  It was so pretty!  The girls loved picking daffodils and tulips, and if you happened to pull the bulb while picking, you got to keep it!  Tessa did great and scored several bulbs that we later planted at home and hope to see blossom next Spring!

They also had a really fun time trying on all of the Dutch clogs!  It was so cute.  

 Just the right size for baby!
