A few weeks back I came across this list of photos to take with your kids on pinterest. I was inspired by it for a few reasons. One of the main reasons I am doing this picture a week challenge with my kids is because I want to be in more pictures with them. But it is hard to get the pictures I want. Sometimes I don't want just staged pictures. I want fun, real action shots. Enter the jumping on the bed, the bubble madness and this week, eating breakfast. I don't want every week to be an action shot, but I want to throw some in because, well, its fun for me to see a glimpse of my life from an outside point of view...even if the action shots are staged just a bit.

This week:
  • I booked mine and Ian's 10th anniversary trip for the first weekend in July. After having an awful time trying to decide where to go, we decided to stay in California and go to Santa Barbara. I can't believe we have been married almost 10 years! 
  • Isla can now reach into the top drawers in our kitchen. Awesome. 
  • Over the past couple days, Connor has started calling people the wrong names on purpose and thinks it is super funny. 
  • Oh, and Connor now has an obsession with telling anyone and everyone hi. And he will continue yelling it until the person says it back...which is totally not awkward when you are in a quiet place, like say, the post office. 
  • Isla slept all night one night...this is a big deal for her. 
  • Connor has a new favorite book, What Will I Do if I Can't Tie My Shoe? I picked it up at the thrift store and it was 29 cents well spent! He has be sleeping with it and having me read it to him over and over and over again. 
  • Oh, and Connor's new favorite thing is asking questions. We are officially in the why? stage! I currently find his curiosity cute and funny and sometimes like turning the table on him and asking him why he is asking me why...it usually just confuses him! 
  • Iced coffee, iced coffee and more iced coffee. 

And, one more picture for the road:

    1. I feel like they help with the mess when Connor is eating...or decides to turn his milk upside down. Though I will admit, I don't wash them nearly as often as I should.

  2. Cute photo! I like the simpleness... I can feel the quiet of the breakfast table. The perspective is cool too.
