So our story begins over 11 years ago in April of 2000 on the beach in Florida! When I went on a weekend getaway w/ my girlfriends little did I know I would be meeting my future husband and the father of our 2 beautiful children Kaden & Kendall. This blog has been created to share our daily life w/ friends & family as well as creating a keepsake diary that my children can one day look back upon. I love to share exciting firsts about the kids, mommy superhero moments as well as the blunders & especially pictures from our parties & travels. I hope that you will enjoy reading about our daily life as well as our journeys and maybe read something that your family might find useful.
I recently had a photo shoot for my boutique, Kissing Frogs with my long time friend and awesome photographer Brandelyn Shirley. Of course I used my two kiddos as well as a handful of others as models. Check out images from the shoot at www.brandelynlee.com/theblog scroll down to the the two different Kissing Frogs posts.
With the rain threatining to cancel most of our weekend plans I thought it would be fitting to get the kids raingear ready. This was Kendall's first time w/ an umbrella and she was a little top heavy :)
March was the opening of my children's boutique, Kissing Frogs. It was an extremely busy time but very exciting. The 25th of March was the ribbon cutting hosted by the chamber of commerce. I had a great turnout and Keith, Kaden and Kendall were by my side as well as my sisters and many dear friends. It has been so awesome to have the support of friends and family during this venture. Kaden loved holding the big huge scissors and he is the one that cut the ribbon!
A week or so ago I went w/ Kaden on an outdoor field trip to the Pettit Preserve where we got to experience nature first hand. Kaden even had a lizard crawl up his chest...I was way more freaked out than he was! I just can't believe how quickly he is growing up. I'm so proud of the little man he has become and I'm going to miss the tight knit little group we have formed at his preschool as he enters Kindergarden this year...OMG, Kindergarden!
Happy Easter!!! So I have a backlog of trips and events to post about and over 350 pictures in my camera, but I wanted to start w/ the most recent. Keith, Kaden, Kendall & I have had a pretty low key weekend. Saturday was spent w/ friends at the club for breakfast w/ the bunny and an egg hunt. And then dinner with more friends. Today we went to church and just came home made lunch, played outside and did a little spring cleaning. It is nice to just be at home. The kids of course have looked adorable all weekend and Keith and I scramble to pull something out of our closets to coordinate w/ them :)
