Children in Lancaster County, Penn, by Co Rentmeester with a Polaroid SX-70 camera, 1972, for LIFE.
Recently my kids have turned a tiny corner. Instead of fighting every 5 minutes, it’s stretching to every 15 minutes or so. It’s given a great boost to family morale (of course I’m jinxing this by even mentioning it). See below the kids are bonding over YKK zipper colors. The fold outs span over their carseats initiating a non-violent discussion about color. Not unlike what Stacy and I do daily. I’m seriously considering giving these swatch cards out out for xmas gifts.
I found this on my internet travels and it struck a chord with me. Maybe because I just wrote the check for swim lessons and paid the mortgage?
Via Abraham’s and Duffy – an awesome store in Portland.
Recently we scored free tickets to Disneyland so without much thought (or sadly research) we bombed down to LA last weekend to take the park by storm. Soon after our arrival we realized a Saturday in April may not be the best time to visit the happiest place on earth. I know this is base camp rule # 1 but there were restrictions on our tickets. I’m never ever been a Disneyland person even as kid. I’m the type that gets a headache right when I see the first line, but I was determined to make the adventure work for my kids. I believe I could write a really funny essay about the highs and lows of our trip, but I think it’s probably better if I leave the bloody noses out of this one.
My son Julian turns the big four today! Per his request we started the day with pancakes, crispy bacon and his perfectly IRONED dress shirt and tie.
Happy Birthday fancy pants!
