We experienced historic rainfall in the Phoenix area today.


Perfect excuse to snap some pics of the kids.


You know, just to let you know we’re still alive.

To say this was a busy summer would be a gross understatement. There’s lots to update you on – Kenton turned three and got glasses (!), we went to San Diego and Telluride, my mom turned 60, and Kenton started preschool. We were also really busy around the house – we (finally) finished the kid’s bathroom, pulled together cute toy storage, styled a fun gallery wall in the entry way and more. Those updates will come. Eventually. But for now…



Just a quick reminder that we’re still around.


Kenton is as curious and adventerous as ever. A natural leader and defintely three years old. IFYOUKNOWWHATIMEAN.


Camille’s hair just keeps getting more red and curly. She’s basically the cutest little nugget on the planet and we can’t go anywhere without strangers telling us so. She’s about to turn two and I cannot believe it.

    This is just adorable. Henry loves playing in puddles, too. And he would probably die over those boots. We have a pair of Lighting McQueen boots that I picked up at Goodwill, but he’s so obsessed with Thomas.
