Fantasy cooking school

Wednesday morning instead of going to the library as usual, we went to the Miami Beach Botanical Garden for a free kids performance.

Fantasy cooking school consisted of 3 actors playing different characters and even though it was complete silliness for 1 hour, Lily and all her little friends seemed to have enjoyed their first piece of live theater.

Afterwards we enjoyed the new grounds and a little picnic.

Here are some fun pictures, happy friday everyone!

Lily knows 4 Sofias.

Her cousin Sofia, her best friend Sofia, Sofia from across the street (not pictured) and her new friend Sofia.

All 4 of them all have curly brown hair!

Do any of you know any Sofias who don’t have curly brown hair?

If you do, please let me know because I’m convinced that EVERY Sofia has curly brown hair.

Off to the mountains

I know, I know, it feels like we were just away and here we go again.

To West Virginia this time where Christmas feels like Christmas with family, cold and usually snow.

I can’t wait!

But, before we go, it’s small style thursday.

Avo Hayes sent Lily the prettiest Tea Collection blouse and it got here just in time for Lily to wear it to her bff’s second birthday party last sunday. It was perfect!

Well, I got a little more packing to do and a plane to catch!

Happy thursday everyone.

Sofia turns two

Well, it’s monday again. Did this weekend fly by for you as well?

I think it’s the fact that we were so busy this weekend that made it go so fast. No down time at all.

Yesterday afternoon we went to Sofia’s second birthday party.

It was the first time in weeks that Lily was seeing all her friends because of the hand-foot-and-mouth disease.

All the little ones were excited to see each other. There was lots of hugging, hand holding, kissing, smiling and squealing going on.

There were also a couple of firsts for many of them. Virginia Key Park where the party took place had a train and a carousel where all the little ones enjoyed rides.

It was an afternoon well spent and I’m glad Lily got better just in time to make it to her bff’s birthday party.

Happy monday everyone!

Small changes to come

Hello everyone.

Small changes at the park are about to happen soon.

You see, Lily’s two best friends Sofia and Dylan will be starting daycare in the new year and won’t be at the park in the mornings any more.

Lily, Sofia and Dylan have been playing there since they were 4-5 months old and well, it’s starting to break my heart a little that Lily won’t have them there in the mornings to play with.

It’s hard because these days are the days that they finally really get to play together on their own. Lily is so funny with them lately. She is smiling a lot and being goofy, kissing and hugging them.

It’s really quite special what these three have. Hard to believe they will never remember it and yet for us moms it has been such a memorable almost two years.

I can’t believe they are all two years old and that times are changing so fast.

P.S.- Sorry to disappoint you with no mamas&their babies today. Check over at happy chaos!

Dylan, Valentina and Lily
