Our Fearless Rock Climber

Jetty always wants an adventure. She has been asking to go rock climbing and we decided to take her to a rock climbing gym.

Jetty is truly the extreme adventurer. No rock wall would be high enough for her. We would be in a store and Jetty would stare at the high rafters and tell me she wants to be up there. The higher the better.

Unfortunately, our little peanut didn't weigh enough to be on belay but she was able to boulder just above the painted line and crash on to the crash pad. She had a great time and we promised her that when she reaches 40 pounds we will go back so she can be on belay and climb to the top. She has gained 2 pounds in almost 2 years so I think it will be awhile. Daddy will probably build one attached to her play set. Ella enjoyed running around and jumping on the crash pads. I am sure she will be climbing in no time. Whatever her big sister is doing she wants to join in on the action.

Snorkeling with Daddy

What a special time to cherish. That special moment with your Daddy. Jetty and Ella are so lucky to have such a patient and loving Daddy who shows them so many adventures.

Two months ago Doug showed Jetty how to snorkel in the pool. She picked it up right away and we decided she had enough practice in the pool. She really enjoyed snorkeling at Alexander Springs . This is such a great spring for kids to explore with a nice gradual sand beach. Now I can't wait to take her to the Keys where there are bigger fish to see.

Is it Jetty or Lisa Loeb?????

Jetty has moved on from her love of Laurie Berkner to Lisa Loeb. Mommy and Daddy are both very grateful. Daddy doesn't mind at all watching the "Jenny Jenkins" video. Wink;)Wink;) I personally think she has great style and very cool glasses. Jetty has since decided that she wanted glasses. She started out saying she wanted glasses like Mommy's but then the truth came out. She really wanted to look like Lisa Loeb. She also wants to sing on stage with her. Do any of you have any connections out there?
I am a very lucky Mama of two very stylish looking rock stars. The girls just love the "Catch the Moon" video with Lisa Loeb and Elizabeth Mitchell. Ella reaches up to the sky to try and catch the moon.

Joining the blogging world

Yes, I have decided to join the blogging world. I am not the best at journaling for my girls so I thought this would be a great way to get a journal in a couple times a week . You notice that I didn't say everyday because I am realistic and I know that most of my days are taken up running around after a 4 year old and 1 year old. We spend most of our days creating art, playing outside, pretend cooking, real cooking, reading books, and cuddling (lots and lots of cuddling). I am also lucky enough to have a wonderful husband that gives me "Mama Time" in my studio so I am able to create something without the girls.
I hope this blog will also let our friends and family, who we are not lucky enough to live close to, get a little glimpse at our girls lives. It is so much fun to go on new adventures with them everyday and I hope to share a little bit of that with you.
