Because sometimes you ask to be in a picture just to refuse to actually be in it. Haha! This kid. L wanted a picture with the pretty moon and bridge.
We explored the beach today
Grandma bought us all treats from the local chocolate shop today. The kids picked these but the rest of us had delicious truffles.
These two are practically inseparable - except for naptime, but lately L has been asking to take a quiet time while G naps and it usually starts like this. Then she comes out once he’s sleeping to join the rest of us. It’s the sweetest.
More pool time today for us
L is getting more comfortable going under water - we’re so proud!
Taco Tuesday again! Kendrick’s aunt brought the kids little bags of coins. They thought it was the coolest!
