Jason and Jenna headed back to school last week, and, today, I’m sharing some ideas for getting a handle on all of the papers, projects and artwork that come home in those backpacks each day. Read more on Modern Parents, Messy Kids.
We just returned from vacation, and, on the way home, I realized it was the perfect time to try out the new storytelling app that I downloaded a couple of weeks ago. Its called Steller, and it allows you to create a digital storybook with your photos, videos and text. Our vacation was pretty awesome, and this app is a great way to capture our favorite moments.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! While most of my weekend was spent prepping for Jenna’s upcoming ‘Camp Cinderella’ birthday party, I spent this afternoon having a picnic at the Dallas Arboretum. Here are a few of my favorite pics from the weekend:
Despite lots of sickness in our family, we had a very nice holiday weekend. It was our first Easter in the new house, and the yard proved to be the perfect site for an egg hunt. Most years, Jason and Jenna quickly snatch up the eggs and count their bounty to see who won. This year, victory definitely went to the Easter bunny. J+J gave up after an extensive search of both the front and back yards, leaving at least 3 or 4 eggs to be found later in the day.
Here are a few more highlights from our weekend:
It was a gorgeous weekend, and it’s finally starting to look like Spring in our yard. We spent lots of time enjoying the weather, planting in our garden and, of course, taking photos. I’m really starting to love my new camera! Here are a few of my favorite pics from the weekend:
My new camera arrived on Friday, and then the rain began and continued almost the entire weekend. Not the best weather for playing with my new toy, but I still managed to snap quite a few shots during our weekend cooped up indoors.
A few scenes from our weekend:
In typical Texas winter style, we went from 70 degrees evening-on-the-patio weather on Friday afternoon to freezing rain by Sunday. Perfect weather for fort building, balloon bouncing and just generally being lazy.
