Finally, a post way over due!
I have wanted to post photos of the girls for weeks now and and well, let's say things have been a wee bit busy.
But first a quick update on Shelby. Thankfully she continues to recover uneventfully from surgery and finally started walking, no wait, I mean running... about a month ago and it's all good, especially since Kira now has someone to chase around the house besides me. Also she navigates the stairs like a pro, puts her own shoes on and seems to also have an affinity for Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons!
Kira is finishing up pre-school today and I can't believe that I had to already register her for kindergarten, sniff sniff! Yikes, where did the time go??? I am so proud of her. Despite all the changes this year, Kira has been such a trooper; working so hard in school and completely enjoying her 4 hour intense gymnastics classes. She too is a huge fan of the Jersey Boys (and if I have to listen to that CD one more time, it may accidently go flying out the window of our car) lol.
Well both girls are huge fresh fruit lovers and as a treat we decided to go "berry picking" here in the Garden State. It was interesting to say the least (the big cherries and strawberries were nicely packed in the farms local store) I basically needed a magnifying glass to find the strawberries and beans, but the cherries were fun for all of us.
I totally enjoyed watching the girls and tried to capture their enthusiasm for "farm" life.
My Berry Sweet Girls!
(yes these eyes sparkle naturally)
Now where are those strawberries again?
Needless to say the best part of this outing was desert before dinner!
Shelby makes some crazy faces upon tasting something new or in this case cold.
Big sister Kira laughing hysterically at Shelby's ice creamed face.
Thanks for stopping by friends. Here's to a Happy Summer 2012.
