Teddy Bear Picnic

I can't believe we only have a handful of days left of summer. It seems like summer slips through our fingers like the sand on the beach. We had to sneak in a little teddy bear picnic for a fun lunch today.

Sticks (pretzels), bear sandwiches, teddy grahams, gummy bears, and honey sticks.

Paisley: I two and a half!
Oliver: So, I'm five and a whole!

Sweet Accomplishment

It is always a sweet day when a little is officially potty-trained. Miss Paisley took about 48 hours. Good job cutie pie. x0x0
