Pictures and Pictures :)

Poor, poor neglected blog.  Something about working full time and having 3 little ones has kept us busy lately, and I've slacked at the blog....I like to think I'll get back into a more regular routine with it...but for now - picture overload from the past few months.

When I think I'm going to have a Brooke photo shoot but brother decides to serenade her instead. 

When we first brought this toy home her little toes didn't touch the ground....now those feet plant firmly on the ground and she's running around like a marathon runner in this thing....how quickly she grows!!!!!

The sibling love is so sweet...love watching the little ones together!

Brianne reading to Brooke.  Priceless.  Brooke was cracking up...i have it on video and it's about the most adorable thing ever!

OOOPS!  Every time this silly turkey dresses wrong, Brianne would exclaim "OOOPS" and Brooke would crack up.

Breakfast typically consists of oatmeal and this little girl likes to help.

Sometimes you find your little guy eating his yogurt and wearing a firefighter hat....love.

And sometimes you find your 4 year old working independently to build a lego snowmobile....and it makes you want to hug him and tell him how proud you are...while you wipe away tears because you can't believe how big he is....bittersweet!

Fond Florida Memories...

Maternity leave has come and gone....I've been back to work for over a month now...yikes...where does the time go!  The transition has gone smoother than I would have guessed - but I'm still missing my kiddos like crazy and envious of other places that give mommies far more time with their babies.  My leave was jam packed with quality time and adventures - and I loved it.  Very thankful that the final week of leave was spent in the Sunshine State - and we survived traveling with 3 children and would even dare to do it again!

Our happy place for the week!  Deerfield Beach, FL
Helping to pack up!
 Upong arriving in Florida, we were greeted to Rental Car Hell........it was a 2 hour wait - loong after the kiddos bedtimes - but we survived it and made the most of it.

Beach days!

How I love Florida - torrential downpours that hit as soon as you pull into Publix!
Daddy and Bryce watching the storm roll thru.

Breakfast in paradise (despite the fact we accidentally bought chicory instead of coffee....oye!)


Proud smiles upon learning to swim!!!  Shed a few tears over this milestone!

Canada Day!
Brooke sporting Brianne's old swimsuit....love!

Tired out!
Sibling love in the morning....LOVE!

 Lion Country Safari!!!!

This was a fun adventure...but also insanely hot outside.  Glad we didn't let the heat stop us from having a memorable day!

Love that Bryce gave his favorite blankie and stuffed animal to his baby sis - so sweet.
Where's Brianne....it's too quiet in here................

 July 4th!

Beach life is exhausting!

This is the best shot I got of the trio together.....perhaps one day we'll manage a proper photo shoot!  :)

Our little vacation spot happened to be right next to the firework show....perfect ending to a fabulous vacation!
