firetrucks & rainbows

March 20, 2012

This past Saturday we went to Lawrence, KS
for the annual St. Patrick's Day parade.
We went last year on a whim and had such a great time
we decided to plan on it this year.
Firetrucks are, of course, a fav with our crowd.
...all 17 of them. ;)
Jeff's sister lives in Lawrence
so we go often to visit her fam.
Her 3 kiddos...
My parents spent spring break
on a senior cruise with my sister
so we kept an eye on my little brother Connor for the week.
My boys adore him so they were thrilled when he agreed
to go to the parade with us. :)
Jia Rose was sporting some major baby acne this weekend.
She's still precious sleeping on her Auntie Kayla though. :)
I really had to force myself to include the following photo.
I'm really not loving myself in pictures these days.
My face is still puffy from my pregnancy
only I don't have my cute baby bump {mountain?} to balance it out anymore. ;)
But I'm trying to keep emily's "embrace the camera" philosophy in mind
and remember that I'm doing this for my kids and they'll want to see
photos of me someday and could care less how I look.
...right?
A plus would be that my hair has finally reached
the "hippie" length I was going for.
Just in time for me to want to cut it all off cause Jia
seems to think its her own personal harness. ;)
Seriously, she grabs on for dear life.

I love this instagram of her & Kayla.
Just picture her bobbing her head like a chicken.
She's trying so hard to hold her head up. :)
Aaaaand the drive home.
You know its been a good day when you're backseat looks like this. :)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

So of course I had to make Jia a special St. Patty's Day outfit. :)
I liked the concept of the outfit I made last year for a customer
but wanted a different execution...or I should say media...this time.
So I stuck with the rainbow but did it in watercolor.
I wanted it to have a dreamy feel and am really happy with how it turned out.
I first tried this method for the clouds on my hot air balloon onesie
and I think I might start making more this way!

Hope you all had a great St. Patrick's Day!
