adler turns three

Our sweet Addy boy turned three on the third, his golden birthday.
He's been golden since the day he was born.
We literally couldn't love him more.


philadelphia || christmas village at love park

Christmas Village at Love Park in Philadelphia-- quite possibly our favorite December event to date and definitely a new yearly tradition. Logan wanted nothing more than to ice skate in the city this year. She was watching a Hallmark movie when she saw people ice skating outdoors and it just stuck out to her as one of those things you see in the movies-- until we told her that it's something that she too could do. From that point on, she wanted nothing more than to live out her Christmas Hallmark Movie dream, so we made it happen. We drove into the city for some iceskating, shopping, and all the festive activities.  Our little Candace Cameron Bure was in her glory.  We all were really! We ate warm raclette cheese sandwiches and saw Santa. We bought the biggest bag of cotton candy we ever saw from a small candy shop. We danced to christmas tunes, Adler leading the show, and we picked the perfect set of nesting dolls from the most beautiful collection I ever did see. We rode a carousel that sat smack dab in the middle of towering buildings. Adler ate a pretzel bigger than his head and was so content and happy being in the city. It was a fulfilling day all around. Smiles for all. Sights. Sounds. Smells. Chill vibe amid the hustle and bustle. Just a wonderful experience. One of those days where as parents, you just feel like, yeah, we're doing it right. If you are looking for something to do in Philly around Christmas time-- we totally recommend going to Christmas Village and Dilworth Park. We can't wait to go back in December.


twenty eighteen || spring into summer into fall

Naps in mommy's + daddy's bed, fresh fruit smoothies, swimming, and twinning. 
Playdates, and cuddles, and pool hangs with cousins.
Stone skipping, and ice cream cones, and lots of time outside.
Twenty-eighteen was good one.
