"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2014"
Cruz: Jumping off the dock in Okoboji. We spent the weekend at the lake with some great friends this weekend and had so much fun with them. Cruz enjoyed many adventures this weekend - he went on boat rides, built sand castles on the beach, rode a roller coaster, and had his first slumber party.
Mila: Mila came along for our weekend away and did so great on her first true adventure away from home. She nearly slept through the night both nights, made herself at home wherever she was, and enjoyed her first boat ride, too, life jacket and all! The collar of the jacket dug into her chubby cheeks a bit, but she didn't seem to mind. Every time one of us looked at her, she flashed us this squishy-faced smile and only moved her eyes. It looked like she had a neck brace on!
