Let's Go Fly a Kite: Our Toddler's First Kite Festival

We live a few blocks from a kite park, and we were so excited when we found out they were having a kite festival this past weekend. Lately, Andres has been fascinated with airplanes, and every time he spots them in the sky he starts yelling “avion, avion,” (which means airplane in Spanish). So we knew he would be equally as excited to see a bunch of kites in the air.

My Halloween Dilemma: Should We Do a Family Costume?

Now that we are a family of four, I feel like the pressure is on to go “all out” for our Halloween costumes. We’ve got two adorable little boys who would look cute even dressed as paper sacks… but Mommy and Daddy would look silly.

One Restaurant + Four Kids = Madness!

Remember the days when sleeping in was an actual thing? When you got frustrated at having nothing to do on the weekend? When the kids at the table next to you in a restaurant wouldn’t stop yelling, and you wondered why their parents weren’t doing something about it?

While at dinner last week with friends, my husband and I looked at each other and couldn’t do anything but laugh at the scene going on around us…

Favorite Pics from Macks' First Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

One of my favorite things about the fall is spending the weekends at all of the fall festivals that happen around town. This is our first fall in the suburbs, so we are taking full advantage of all of the festivities.

Last weekend, we went to a local farm so that my girls could pick out pumpkins and we could enjoy the gorgeous weather. I love the stage that Macks is at now, because he is so observant and always loves doing things with a lot of people around–and there is so much for him to see.

Check out some of my favorite photos of Macks at the pumpkin patch!
