nap strike, day 3. πŸ˜­πŸ’”
at least someone is happy about it!

happy birthday to this wild-haired, bright-eyed, creative minded, big idea and adventure loving boy of mine!! Henry has taught me so much in 8 years. He challenges me everyday to go against the current and to be fearlessly confident about life and love. He is who he is and doesn't apologize, he dreams big and creates every minute of everyday. And that boy loves HARD. Full body squeezes and cuddles, and I LOVE it! He is such a gift to our family, and such a gift to me! Happy birthday, Henry boy!! #henry_randall

well that's one good use for a Costco box!

she likes to eat sand/dirt/rocks, I like to throw a trucker hat on over my dirty gym hair. same same.
finally crawled out from underneath sick kiddos today and went for a little hike. we didn't last very long, but that sunshine felt so good!! more in stories β˜€οΈ. #ivy_june

doll baby.

sometimes when she is talking to herself in her crib instead of sleeping like she is supposed to, I look at pictures of how cute she is so I don't go all "FOR THE LOVE JUST GO TO SLEEP!" on her. 😬 #howtoparent #whydonttheyunderstandthatsleepingISTHEBEESSSSTTT ? #ivy_june

sd locals: we found a fun spot today!@ecovivarium in Escondido let's you interact with a wide variety of animals (mostly reptiles) and provides tons of info for curious little minds.
The boys were in heaven, and Ivy tried to squeeze the animals and trash the place 😬. #ithoughtagirlwouldbecalmer #shesnot 😬
Swipe for more fun pics.

silly girl was terrified of the ocean when we first got to the beach today and then didn't want to leave in the end. maybe it was the sand buffet that changed her mind. #ivyeatssand 😬#forcingkidstolovethebeachsince2007

Am a fan of: big brothers, sunny zoo days, baby bellies, and alllllll. those. dimples. 😍

we've never been big on grand romantic gestures, but this... this do-the-dishes-when-I'm-tired, build-me-shelves-for-all-my-junk, bring-me-surprise-acai-bowls-for-lunch kind of love? It's my favorite kind. All the 😍s for you, babe.

13 years ago that man right there asked me out for Valentine's Day.
And I said no 😬 (I had a good reason!!!). I never could have imagined what saying yes to him would have looked like, but I'm so grateful for the choice to love each other nearly every day since. What amazing things (namely those 4 munchkins) have come from that first Valentine's Day! Love you for loving me @clintmerickson and for multiplying that love x 4. ❌❀❌❀
