Category Archives: Our Everyday

Wow – I can’t believe I’ve been working on my everyday project for 12 weeks. It has been so much fun and I’ve enjoyed capturing these everyday moments. This past week we went to the beach. (Yes, in the tropical storm) The rain didn’t last too long and we were able to be back on the beach Tuesday evening.

He wore his rain boots during the tropical storm. You may remember them from this post. He LOVES his boots and had fun stomping around in them all morning.

We had such a great time – He enjoys the beach so much. He loves digging with his shovel, playing with his trucks, and looking for seashells.

The day before my birthday, my sweet boy and I headed out to pick some strawberries. It was super quiet in the strawberry field, and he just had a blast running and picking strawberries. t was surprised that he only ate one strawberry. He had more fun looking for strawberries and screaming his favorite phrase at the moment, “There it is!”  Vollmer Farm is such a great place, and we had to eat some of their delicious ice cream before we left. P I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterest

And of course, on my birthday, we had to make this roasted strawberry, brie and chocolate grilled cheese with our strawberries. We borrowed The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear from a friend which was a big hit with Owen.

On Mother’s Day Eve we headed out to North Hills and Owen just loved running around and playing. See more mother’s day pictures here.

This week’s theme – Mothers.

One of my favorite times of the day is when Owen wakes up from his nap. He is so happy and just loves playing with his letters puzzle and his puppy. This puzzle is one of his absolutely favorite toys – he knows every letter of the alphabet and is content identifying the letters and their sounds and then figuring out the puzzle.  I have been meaning to capture this sweet time in the afternoon and finally picked up the camera. I am almost never in pictures with Owen simply because it is usually just me and him when I am taking pictures. Thankful that Michael captured this sweet moment. Truly a special Mother’s day gift – a memory with my son.

Don’t forget to capture your favorite times of the day – and don’t forget to get in the picture every once in a while! Happy Mother’s Day!

So I have to admit, I have not taken as many pictures the last two weeks as I wanted to. We even took a trip to Ohio and my camera stayed in my bag the whole time!

To celebrate Owen’s buddy Christopher’s second birthday, we took the boys to Ox and Rabbit Soda and Sundries in Durham. Not only can you get an old fashioned egg cream but the shop it just too cute and packed with gifts for the home and little ones. The boys weren’t quite big enough to reach the counter yet but they still enjoyed their treat!

Owen had so much fun and was an absolute mess by the time we left! We will definitely be back!

Well, we took a trip to the beach. Owen loves the sand but is still a little scared of the ocean.

While we were at the beach, we went to Ripley’s Aquarium at Myrtle Beach.  It was super fun and Owen loved picking up the horseshoe crabs and watching all the sharks float over our heads.P I N this to pinterest

And of course, in the past two weeks, we took lots of Easter pictures, made a bunch of Easter crafts and participated in an Easter Egg Hunt. I only took 300 pictures in his Easter outfit because he has never worn a tie before and I just thought it was too cute.P I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterest

While we were taking these, a bunch of helicopters flew over. The first picture is Owen saying, “Where’d they go? Helicopters?” which he repeated for several hours and was the first thing he said the next morning when he woke up. Adorable.

For one of our Easter Crafts, we made these super cute cards, filled Easter Eggs, and mailed them to the grandparents and great grandparents. When they opened their mailbox, they found an easter egg with a little tiny label on it filled with candy and a cute little card. I love this website and I got the idea for the card here and the idea to mail the eggs here. We also made Graham Cracker Peep Houses which can be seen here.

How delicious were these Bird’s Nest Cookies? Owen and Christopher gobbled them up as soon as we put the tray down. See more pictures here.P I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterestP I N this to pinterest

Once he figured out there were snacks in the eggs, he just sat and ate and ate and ate:)P I N this to pinterest
