Willa

Out of practice

We are now on the beach in the outer banks of NC but, before we left WV, we went to our little friend Willa’s 2nd birthday party and let me tell you guys something…. it was cold!!

We were in WV for a month and the weather totally changed from late summer to early fall.

Even though fall is my favorite season, after living in Miami for 10 years, I am so out of practice of how to dress for colder weather.

I mean, I knew by the time we would be leaving WV the weather was going to be much cooler (30 at night) but, I totally packed WAY more summer clothes than I did fall clothes.

I did manage to pack a pair of knee socks and knee high boots and luckily enough I had something to go with them.

I always thought I was a pretty good packer but from now on I need to pay more attention and perhaps actually plan outfits. For me and for Lily. 😉

Linking up to Mandy for Steppin’ Out and Morgan for Small Style.

around here

It’s our last week here in West Virginia, we will all be leaving early saturday morning for a week at the beach in the outer banks all together.

We have had a wonderful time here. We always do.

We got to have the very end of summer and the very beginning of fall.

I’m sorry to not have a mama&their babies segment ready for you this wednesday.

Even though I hung out with a mama&her babies, I was having so much fun that blogging was the last thing on my mind.

Instead, here are some pictures of the fun that has been had.

A play date

We are very fortunate to have such wonderful friends here in West Virginia who have kids around Lily’s age.

Last saturday we had a play date with our friends Joanna, Ramona and Willa.

We met in Marlington where we had smoothies for breakfast at the Dirt Bean, went on a long walk, played at the park and ended up in Hillsboro at the Pretty Penny where Ramona who had started the play date quite shy, ended up not so shy and put on shows on the stage.

This is where…

Lily has been really loving it here. Her days are so filled with wonder.

But she is not the only one.

Cousin Adelaide was back this weekend as well as other little friends of ours.

They all love it here.

And why wouldn’t they?

This place is magical for them.

You can see it in their little faces. 🙂

This is where…

you can swing over the flowers and butterflies
