A list of happy moments in pictures

There's been so much happening, so many emotions and just so much Terrible Twos to deal with that blogging has actually become hard for the very first time. I'm not sure if it's that I just don't have the time, or if the mundane of saying no a thousand times a day is just not interesting to me. I could have written how we spent five hours in the ER with a bleeding finger last weekend that resulted in three stitches, or the fact that one of my daughters got locked in her bedroom this morning before breakfast. But, I'm just not feeling any of it. But, there have been plenty of bloggable moments happening ... even if they really only matter to me, the Mommy. I'll apologize now for the low-quality photos.

So, here are some of those many good moments we have had these last few weeks:

These three above are at a local nature center, again, and we have been enjoying getting to know the place. The rocks are perfect -- and intended -- for climbing. The creek is there for wading. And, the stage and bleachers are perfect for performing.

Sometimes just a flat piece of cardboard does the trick.

Sometimes we make funny faces. And laugh.

Sometimes we put homemade play dough on our feet and legs. Or, under our nose.

We dine a lot. Often alone, but sometimes with friends, which is a lot of fun.

Who needs the 4-hour drive to the beach when local parks have beach volleyball courts ready and waiting all the time?

Taking a nap in the sand would be perfect if our mean mothers would let us!

We jump all the time. A lot, really. In fact, we just might be jumping around in all of our dreams.

And, because we know you like them, too. Here's those trees that were mentioned earlier this week. Couldn't you just hug them?

The trees, too.

I have to say, your babes are babes! And your life is hastening toward new vistas, I understand. It happens.

They're adorable (over from HDYDI). I have 18 month old twin girls (plus a 3 year old son and 7 year old daughter). It's a trip isn't it?

The twos are a busy busy time.

I know you get tired of hearing it, but those girls are seriously adorable. I love the pic standing on the sand with their toes buried, wearing coordinating dresses. I never could keep my twins in matchy outfits, my daughter is such a messy eater.

l love the pics.... they gave me a little chuckle.

4 hours to the beach!!! holy cow... that is just not done in our country, I have never really thought about it but surely there must be some people in the States that have never even seen the sea? I live a 10 minute walk away... I guess New Zealand is a slither of a country compared to United States.

it sounds like you are nice and prepared for the trip... you sound like a woman after my own heart.
preparation is everything.

I like the picture of them all in the sand. Gives the impression of such peace. Ha!

Blog when you want. Don't add to your stress.

Photos to the rescue. That's my philosophy about blogging.

Love these. Your girls are so beautiful.
