Thank you for the fairies

I'm not gonna lie; sometimes the day-to-day can become a blur of diapers, food-prep, and TRYING to get an errand done. I constantly catch myself dragging my kid (the one who's not ACTUALLY strapped to me) through the parking lot or the store, or even the house. In an attempt to slow it all down and celebrate our time together, we've decided to notice the fairies.
We think our fairies migrated from Mama Za's garden and we're happy to give them a home in ours. In fact, thats how we spent our day yesterday.

Dave and I took the girls to Orcutt Park in West Hills to search for things that the fairies might enjoy.

Bea and her Daddy made this house for any fairies that might be living in the park.

Even little Pippi got in on the action. We took our bucket of treasures home and Bea set to readying the fairies' garden. She was really proud of herself. We can't wait to see if the fairies find their home.

Wholey Moley, It's Been Awhile - An adventure in Echo Park with Auntie Jek and Mama Za

Yep, you guessed it, there's a new baby in town. Penelope Moon Landau hit the stage on July 7th 2010 which makes her nearly 5 months old. Look at those beautiful blue moon eyes! A shout out to Jek for these gorgeous pictures!
Here's Bea digging into her Pho at Blue Hen in Echo Park. Delicious! They even hooked her up with the requisite extra tofu.
And then there was Princess Potion. C'mon, the people at Swork know what their doing. Rasberry milk with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles. Ooops, don't forget the pink circus cookie. Yum! We'll be sure to adopt this treat at home. Thanks for the treat Mama Za!
It's incredible to compare this post with my last (over a year ago!) Bea's nearly 3 1/2 now and practically perfect in every way!
Stay tuned for pictures from our family outing to Orcutt Park, searching for bits and pieces of pretties to make our offerings to the fairies.
