I had lots of fun with photos this week. The world gave me so much to work with!
Nana and Papa joined us at diving for the first time last Wednesday. There was so much pride in their faces. Nana kept shushing us if we even considered talking while the boys were on the board or jumping off the side of the pool. It was fun to watch them watching their grandsons.
The cake, before. There were also Rice Krispie treats and finger jello that were made up in anticipation of putting it all together. It took everything that we had to keep Keegan from eating the cake alone!
I can’t believe how fun this cake ended up being to make! My honey made the finger jello and worked very hard to get swirls to stay in the blue jello. It actually looked like water. I loved placing it by the Rice Krispie treats and having it resemble wave coming up on shore. The pig was a major pain in the ass to make but I smiled every minute of making it knowing that Keegan would simply LOVE the fact that I took the time to put an animal on the cake. There is not a day that I regret taking that cake class and taking my boys up on the challenge to make all of their cakes.
I share this one from the day of the party again. It’s my most favorite picture. This is the Keegan I know and love. This is the smile and the laugh that makes me fall in love with him every moment of every day. I love how beautifully this picture captures all that he is.
Eli has been really into crystals lately. Not sure how it started but now he is reading all of the books we have in the house about crystals and looking things up on the internet. My honey and I bought this geode ages ago, in another lifetime and it’s just been sitting on our shelf waiting for the right person to set it free. Eli and Keegan took turns hitting it with a hammer. The smiles when they finally broke it open were priceless. We spent hours afterward trying to figure out the prize inside. They both have it in their backpack to take to show it to their friends. I love how proud they are.
Tuesday showed buds on a tree and today brought snow. Not a lot but enough to cancel school for the day. The boys came together to roll this giant snowball. They attempted to roll more to make a snowman but there just wasn’t enough snow. Sadly the weather warmed up and all we have to show for it is this large ball of snow in the backyard.
What inspired you this week?
