Whew! Week one of 2016 is in the books. I hope your year is off to as great of a start as ours is.
One of my goals for this year is to use this space to record our family’s growth. Like most people, I’m way better at pulling out my phone to grab quick photos than taking out the DSLR. Most of the time, those photos don’t make it to this here blog so every Friday I’m going to make it a point to share some of my favorite snapshots of our week with you here!
We started off the New Year tako (octopus) hunting at Hunakai Beach. The weather was absolutely perfect, Lyla rocked her life jacket and Simon Earl took a nice nap in the shade.
Simon Earl is sweet as ever. He’s been smiling up a storm lately and it melts my little mama heart every time.
Our Lyla girl loves art. Painting, drawing, coloring with chalk – it’s all good in her book and we spend many an afternoon making art together.
On Tuesday I braved the zoo with both kids on my own. Lyla had a blast running from exhibit to exhibit and was so proud to show me that she knew the noises that the animals made. She is at such a fun age and I am loving every second of it.
We ran into a nice group of moms (and their children) at the playground earlier in the week and they invited us to join their playdate at the beach Thursday morning. It was so great to meet new friends that live here in our neighborhood and I’m really looking forward to next week.
Have a great weekend!
