Summer is Coming

 
I smell of burning wood and I love it.

Since I set up the tent for the kids yesterday AJ has been insisting we need to have s'mores. Today he got his *ahem* demand. Papa sent us out to get the fixings.

Let me tell you trying to start a fire with a 5 and 3 years old mischievous faeries running around and trying to figure out what you are doing. Pretty funny that I was the one that wound up eating the s'mores. AJ had some marshmallows and Ariel just wanted chocolate.


The fire worked for what we needed it to do but it was definitely the worst fire I ever made. Didn't help that once I got the right size wood sticks to build it up, I asked AJ to get a newspaper for kindling. He then dropped it on top of my wood teepee instead of handing it to me, cause I was making a s'more for Ariel to not eat. Oh well.

The Kids' Summer Home

The kids have their own summer home. I set it up this morning and AJ immediately said they are going to sleep outside tonight. We'll see how that goes.

Through My Kids Eyes


















A while ago I got the kids their own little point and shoot camera, they love playing with my cameras (and that's a NO-NO!) so I got them their own. It's cute, red, runs on AAAs and they get to wandering around and take pictures by themselves. I figured since they have been using it more often I would share some of my mischievous faeries' pictures.

Beautiful Spring {Joules Review}

I was contacted by this wonderful British Country brand (that just opened their website for the US) called Joules, about their Joules Little line for boys and girls. I thought the outfits were so adorable that I asked for one for Ariel to review.

Dress
Cardigan
Wellys
They arrived on Monday and let me tell you Ariel was so excited that she insisted on putting everything on as I opened it!

Since Spring was still being a little slow on showing up here, I'm glad that I had thought ahead and gotten Ariel some tights. She is in loved with the boots been wearing them all week! Though I followed along with their size guide I think Ariel could have gotten a size bigger, but once she wore the outfit for a while it loosen up (also will look so cute in the summer for a bathing suit cover up). The sweater fit perfectly, so did the boots. She's just tall so I should have known to ask for a bigger size but it still fits her fine.

I did two shoots with her in the outfit, one at home before taking AJ to school and the other down at the Waterfront after dropping AJ off to school. I thought it would look cute with the nautical theme to her dress.













As you can see she was able to move around with no problem in the outfit, which is very important to me because my kids are definitely explorers. The boots are great for the Springtime muddy ground, and for jumping. She was completely comfortable and we got many compliments on how cute her outfit was.

Kids at Play


Caution: Kids at Play


My kids are always playing, always making believe, or doing something silly. Yesterday we went from Princesses to Pirates then Faeries. I love they're imagination, it's amazing. AJ will take a show or a game and then making this elaborate imagination game.


It is very rare to find the Faerie kids not in motion. They are almost always moving. Even in their sleep! They may watch TV for a few minutes but then they run around like manics. Ariel has a fierce belief in her wings, she keeps trying to make them work.

Washing sheets and blankets and pillows oh my


Before the madness of a toddler with an upset tummy started. It was just another semi-normal night with the late napper girl.





As the night went into the early hours of the morning we lost bedding and changed pajamas more than a few times. Finally falling asleep around 5am. There was a few more changes after we woke up. The little girl had chugged a cup of water and it didn't agree with her.


After giving her some Pedialyte she seems to be feeling better and is holding that down. I even got a smile when I went to take a picture of her. Momma on the other hand is exhausted.


Long night with a sick toddler makes for a sleepy momma
