    EASTER BASKET FAVORITES!

    Easter bunny shopping is almost as exciting as getting to play Santa! Give me all the pastel toys and little stuffed bunnies… the easter egg hunts and adorable dresses! I just love this special spring holiday… almost as much as I love a good theme basket!
    This year I had the hardest time narrowing down what theme I wanted to do for the babes! I decided to do one bigger item with a few accessories for each of them and…

      A LETTER TO MY SON

      A few months ago, we had Easton evaluated because he was having some developmental delays and behavioral issues that concerned us. He was having a really hard time communicating with his words about things that were really bothering him and it was beginning to affect his everyday life. We made an appointment and took him in, with hopes the doctor would say that these were all normal behaviors but instead we were hit with a diagnosis that we weren’t…

        VEER GEAR WAGON REVIEW

        Being a mom of multiples means I’m always on the hunt for anything that will make my life easier. I’ve been tossing around the idea of a wagon for a few reasons… mainly, I’m not okay with being the family pack-mule and I know wheeling a load of things to the beach is always so much easier than carrying it all.
        When I first laid eyes on the Veer Gear Wagon, I was intrigued. It’s sleek and looks more like…

          BUMBLERIDE INDIE TWIN | DOUBLE STROLLER REVIEW

          I just want to start by saying that this post is NOT sponsored by Bumbleride but I have a deep love for our Bumbleride Indie Twin double stroller that is so worth sharing with all of you. It is hands down my favorite double stroller for day-to-day use, walking around town and tackling tough terrain. The Bumbleride Indie twin can handle just about anything you throw at it and we couldn’t be happier with our double stroller.
          Not only is…

            BIKING WITH KIDS | CHOOSING A TRAILER

            Before the babes were even a thought in our mind, Ryan and I took up mountain biking. We lived in North County San Diego where there are trails a plenty. We used to hike in an area we just loved and would always see mountain bikers cruising by. One day Ryan said “let’s get those” and I was like “sure, okay!” (even though I was secretly petrified haha) Then boom, we were at the bike store buying bikes. Ryan…

              TRENDY TOT ON A BUDGET

              If you’ve been around these parts before, it’s not hard to tell that the fashion bug didn’t fall too far from the tree with Everly. She has a pinch-eon for spinning dresses, layers, and adorable boots… Even better if they’re fine leather, pretty pink, or have a few floral touches to it too! She’s such a trendy tot!
              There are two struggles I have with finding clothing that both her and I like. The first and biggest struggle is price…

                The bath + bedtime routine is ever changing through out the early years of parenthood but I feel like we’re finally in a steady and sustainable routine. Having 3-year-old twins and two busy parents means our life is often very scheduled. We rely heavily on well-rested children so our next day isn’t a total disaster. This routine is one…
