An Instagram Weekend

by tolmema on May 29, 2014

I had some fun with Instagram this weekend. I took the girls for a little walk on their bikes and we made a stop at the field across the parking lot that was stuffed to the brim with dandelions. I took the opportunity to play with some instagram filters.

Little Sister has not been feeling well so I took her to the ER on Monday to check for a virus or infection. Her test results came back fine, so the doctor chalked it up to extreme teething and sent us on our way. Of course, she was more than happy to ride her tricycle in the parking lot.


I love dandelions. I remember being small and blowing on them while making wishes. the girls dropped several of them down the storm drain and giggled at the plopping sound they made.

We had such a happy hour or so, just exploring the empty lot; picking flowers, digging around in the dirt, checking out the storm drain. It was a lovely experience and it took place just a few hundred feet from our front door. It’s easy to forget how much fun the little things are when your babies are still small.


 Flowers forever.
