Happy Earth Day. Yesterday.

awwww....sisterly (smotherly) love. She kisses him and says oh I love this boy! The boy says...YUCK! When the kids run off the bus each day, one of my favorite things to do is photograph them, they are so happy to see Brody and the dog...it's the perfect set up for a smiling picture taking time!

After dinner the kids reminded me that it was Earth Day and wanted to do something for it. Taylor suggested that we take garbage bags outside and pick up all the trash we could see along our street. So off we went filling up our bags, enjoying the beautiful weather and all the plants, trees & flowers.
Taylor ran through these plant pods and wanted me to take a picture to show how they release their pollen (the green smokey stuff).

Our neighbor has beautiful trees...


If Brody sees one of the kids' helmets lying around it's bound to end up on his head, he can't wait to have his OWN helmet and bike. He's not picky, but we'll make sure it's a boy colored one when he gets his own someday.

Taylor and her Heelys. If I let her she'd wear them to school, church, grocery store, the shower....

As of last week Connor's officially riding 2 wheels...great job buddy, good bye training wheels!

Mom celebrated Earth Day with a mani-pedi.

I love this post. My fav. is Tay squeezing Connor. I think every post from now on should have a min. of 10 photos. These ones are so great, we all need to take more photos!

Love'n the Heelys too, La would totally shower with hers on too, she'd probably sleep in them if I let her!
