Photo Challenge: Fun!

Ok. If I’m going to post about something “fun” the first, second, and third things that come to mind are all related to our recent trip to Disney World! Of course. 🙂

So, here’s just a sampling of the fun that we had.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Details

The girls and I went on a walk in the woods earlier this week. We saw a frog, a rabbit and lots of different insects. We are very lucky that we live so close to so many different forest preserves within the Forest Preserve District of Dupage. This week’s adventure took place at the Willowbrook Wildlife Center.

We saw many different animals that the Wildlife Center is currently caring for then we went for a short hike on the trail.

This flower is one of the many that we saw.


Photo Challenge – Curve

My girls and I took a trip to the Field Museum for their free admission day. It was a very fun day! I took a lot of pictures but this really caught my eye. This overlooks the main hall. If you take a couple steps toward the center of this opening, you can see right into the hall. And, you can see how many people are in line to get in. (So glad that we got there early!)


Weekly Photo Challenge: ROY G BIV

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “ROY G. BIV.”

I know that this is actually a bit late, but I wanted to complete this challenge not just because I love finding interesting color in the every day but this was also going to be my first post with a “gallery” in it. I feel like galleries require a little more planning but I’m looking forward to adding more galleries into my blog.

Treasuring these moments

Treasuring these moments

Big girl is three years old now. I am planning baby girl’s first birthday. Right now, the living room floor is covered in toys and I can hear the girls playing in hallway. The floor is a mess and I really should use this time to put away the toys, or start some laundry, or load the dishwasher, or get some grad school work done….but instead…. I’m going to sit here and listen to the laughter with the knowledge that this time will be gone in the blink of an eye.  They won’t always want to play together. They won’t always want to snuggle on the couch.  They won’t always want to hold my hand. They won’t always want to ride on Daddy’s shoulders. So, for now, the toys will stay on the floor and the laughter in the hallway will continue as long as it can.
