Some recent pictures from here and there

I've been taking pictures for years now, documenting our lives one snap at a time. A lot of them are from things we do and they fit nicely into blog posts about our adventures, but the daily ones from here and there don't often make it onto the blog. Partly because they don't justify their own post, partly because there are other ways to share pictures (Flickr was my go-to years ago, but now Twitter and Instagram are popular).

But because this blog is a look at my life, I wanted to share some of the day-to-day happenings. The everyday normal of my life.

We spent a lot of time at the bus stop and walking to and from it. When it's nice it's not a big deal going a bit earlier than we have to so the kids can play. The kids love running far away and then running back, hurdling themselves at me when they get close. I love that they get active outside and my arms appreciate the workout of catching their little bodies.

Little K running as fast as she can.

Little J's turn.
I do a lot of my necklace making in the afternoons while Little J is at school. My dutiful helper colours in the letters (how to make them stand out). Little K just loves this task and takes great pride in helping her mama. I take great pride is having such a helpful little girl even if her help actually makes the process a little longer.

Since it's gotten warmer and stopped raining so much we've been spending a lot of time outside. The kids have been mostly biking but they also put their bikes down to pick me flowers.

Special dandelions.
If the trunk gets opened it gets climbed in. Without fail.

Lots of room in there.
There have been bike rides with the whole family and everyone-but-me. Last year the kids were in seats on the backs of our bikes, but this year Little J is pedaling himself around. Little K too sometimes but sometimes she's on my bike.

Just a quick trip around the block.

Us girls.
When we're not in the front we're in the back yard. We bought this house because of the big lot (for a townhouse) and have lots of space for the kids to run around and play. Or sit and eat popsicles.

Fun with streamers.

Popsicles on the deck.
We've had a lot of family time lately and it's nice that the kids get to spend so much time with their great-grandparents, grandparents, and great-aunts and uncles. It's something I remember fondly from growing up and I'm glad they get to experience it too.

Colouring away.
Tell me I'm not the only one who takes a ton of pictures!

  1. I love posts like this - just capturing the little moments. It's so universal and so personal at the same time. Thanks for sharing!
