Deciding on a theme for boy/girl twins can be a challenge especially as they get older and have very different interest and opinions about what they like.  As we discussed what kind of party they … [Read more...]

Blank Canvas

Today we had a SUPER fun playdate with our favorite Cobbs boys.  It has been over 100 degrees for the past several weeks and anything outside is unbearable, unless it involves water.  We thought we would try something new and take a break from the pool (which might I add is not relaxing at ALL when you have 6 toddlers to keep track of) so we had a paint party. I hung up an old white sheet in the backyard for our blank canvas.  I filled up spray bottles with tempera paint and added water to … [Read more...]
