Kangroos.

Sometimes I hear a small voice say "Mama, I want to be close to you. I want to be your roo." 

It might be this little girl.
 Or it might be this boy. When his behavior isn't ideal, a half hour or so on my back fixes everything just about every time.  He says he 'needs' me.
 Babywearing is really a part of parenting I truly love.

And I love when she brings me her baby, or he brings me a random stuffed animal...
 And asks for me to help put their loved one in the 'roo' carrier. 
 They know just how special baby/toddler/preschooler wearing is.  And that makes a mama smile.

Squeezing in....More Beach.

There's surely a bit of time to squeeze in some more beach time.  Why yes, yes there is.

My kids thrifted style.

 
My kids, seriously, without doubt, 100% have their own style.  Sometimes when that style arises, I start to convince them otherwise.  But then, I stop and think, and I really do want to encourage their quirky likes. Because really, their style is quite fun. 

Case in point?  Their thrifted scores.

A rooster lamp, that's right, for $3.50.  A vintage purse for $2.50.

This was just what he wanted.

And exactly what she wanted.


He always finds the most worn in items when he goes to thrift stores/garage sales with me.  Such as this farm truck for fifty cents.
 
And this Tonka truck he scored for $2.00.  There was another  perfectly good Tonka truck, but he wanted the one worn in.  She's just starting to have preferences...it's fun to see what she picks.
I don't mind that they have a love for vintage one bit. Apple might not fall far from the tree.

The County Fair 2014

He's been waiting for this since 2013, playing county fair on a regular basis. His smile couldn't have been bigger when I whispered his ear "Wake up, sweet boy. Today is the county fair."  And off we went...these pictures say it all.









 (His favorite farmer arriving....so exciting).




 He found the calf he wants.









 She picked her boots.








 He won't let his face be painted, but he will get a tractor painted on his hand.

 And she got a watermelon.




 A fantastic day, indeed.
