Sharing favorite friends (sibling photos week 13/52)

When Liam was two, he watched the Cars movie for the first time, and thus began an obsession that lasted a good two years until we finally transitioned him into Superheroes, mostly for our own sanity as by then we could ALL recite the entirety of both movies, having watched them what felt like at least a hundred times each!

Therefore, despite the insane amount of merchandise we own, we were a little reticent to introduce Jack to the Lightning McQueen phenomenon and he skipped right into Superheroes.

We revisited this decision recently though as the constant Superhero fighting is wearing us a little thin. We dusted off the old DVDs... well actually we couldn't even find them so, to add insult to injury, we had to rent them on Amazon Prime, but it has actually been quite adorable to see Liam get reacquainted with old friends while introducing them to Jack who is happily "kachowing" all over the place now.

What is truly hilarious is seeing Jack's slowly dawning realization that our house is covered with Cars stuff that he just hadn't noticed before and we had all stopped seeing. Lightning and his friends are EVERYWHERE!

The other day, I took the boys to Pratt and some of our Cars friends came with us. The last time Liam played with Lightning McQueen, Jack was a baby. Now that baby has grown into a friend to share obsessions with.


Things you realize about your kids only in photos (sibling photos week 12/52)

I've never thought that my boys look all that much alike until I took these photos... apparently they have the exact same nose and mouth!


Our crazy beautiful life together (sibling photos week 10-11/52)

In the harried rush of the day, the moments can pass on by. But in the quiet of the night I go back and luxuriate in the "stills" from our busy life.

And the meltdowns and the shoes asked to be put on twenty times and the bickering over Lego and the whining about what tv shows they can watch fades away into nothing and all I can think of is how I simply cannot imagine that they have any idea how much I love them and our crazy beautiful life together.


My laid back photo strategies for your next beach vacation

On Mom365 this week, I am talking about laid back photo strategies for your next beach vacation.

Get tips and packing ideas to capture the moment like we were able to do on our recent family beach vacation to Aruba over winter break.

Without my photos, our week of warmth would be a much more distant memory.

Capturing beach vacation photos as a parent doesn’t have to be a big deal, or overly complicated. I have a few of these vacations under my belt now and have perfected some laid back photo strategies.

Action photos to say goodbye to winter (sibling photos 9/52)

New York has been in a state of euphoria over "not 14F" temperatures. We even had a day last week with temperatures in the low 60s - no coats!

Before we jump fully into spring though, I do have to share some last snow storm photos... from March 1st!

As tired as we all became of the snow this year, it has to be said that it does provide great photo opportunities, especially if you can take photos while it is snowing. The opportunity came up while we were at my sister-in-law's house and, tricky as it was with the snow coming down pretty heavily, I had a lot of fun capturing some action shots.

Jack had fun but was very serious about the whole thing.

Liam on the other hand let loose and enjoyed a snowball fight with his older cousin a friend.

That wasn't even the last snowstorm we had but hopefully we are done now. Bring it on spring!
