Before Winter Weather Gets Here…


We spent our weekend soaking in what might be the last few days that aren’t too cold to spend outside! We went to a few different parks, including one out-of-town where I used to go with my family on weekends when I was a kid! It hasn’t changed a bit, and it was fun to see Blaire playing there! Playing at the Park 2016

Blaire hasn’t been a fan of the swing since we was little… but all of a sudden she’s decided she loves it again. I just picture my tiny baby in that swing and I can’t believe I’ve blinked and my girl will be three in a few short months. Ah! Also, I feel like I’m finally better getting the hang of my camera. FINALLY. I’ll leave you with some pictures of my crazy Hawkeyes… because they pulled off an insane win, which put the hubby in a great mood for the rest of the weekend! Also, they look pretty cute. ;)

Have a great week! xo

    We’ve been trying to squeeze in as many days playing outside too before we’re cooped up indoors for the winter. Great pictures of your little one!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
