Maylie's preschool does a monthly field trip. This month as you can tell, we went to the fire station. Maylie got to sit in the fire truck. She was very hesitent about it. I think she had a good time, even if it didn't involve princess stuff. We also put together wooden fire trucks.
What do you think? I very happy how it turned out. I've had the idea for so long (in a magazine of course) and I finally did it. Instead of purchasing it through Eurway for $199. I probably spent $60. We have it over our bed. My next project is to make a headboard. Wish me luck.

Theodore Roosevelt Island

There are some really cool picture taking areas here. To bad I don't have a better camera.

Maylie took this picture. That is why you don't see her. Don't you think she did a awesome job?
She also took this one too. She's going to be my photographer.
I love it when my kids crunch up their noses. Maylie used to do when she was Taryn's age.

Fabulous Table and Fabulous People

Beautiful Taryn already for dinner. She never misses a bite of food.
Maylie wanted us to have lunch with her. We had fruit with ham sandwiches. Pretend of course.
If you like modern stuff you need to check out West Elm. They are the best. We got this table for $250. We thought it was a good deal. It's called a Butterfly table. It has leaves stored underneath. You can fit two more chairs on the sides. We just haven't purchased them yet.

Almost 8 months

Taryn almost has it, though she still hasn't figured out lay down to the sitting up position.
Taryn's already for softball. And look even left handed.

Maylie's first picture she drew all by herself. She says it's a dog.
Maylie always wanted to be Cinderella. This was taken at Cox's Farm. We went there for a field trip with her preschool friends. They had a lot of slids and farm animals. We got to see how a cow is milked and ate free apples that were so crispy. We also got to take home a free pumpkin.
