for real

Recognize these cuties? I gotta tell you that they are just as cute in person as they are on Brittany's blog.
Correct me if I'm wrong Brittany, but that's Eliza in front and Nolia behind her.

If you read my tweets you know by now that I met up with Brittany and her family during their road trip to the Farm. It took us almost 24 hours to connect, but when you've been waiting 2 years to meet - what's one day?
No idea which is which here...That was one of the first questions I asked after we hugged and sent our kids off to play on the nearby playground equipment - "HOW do you tell them apart?" It has to do with the sounds they make, the curl of their hair, and their expressions. My secret? - I used the smear of red nail polish on one of their legs to keep them straight. :)



Sam and Gavin played together for hours...



He even named his toy killer whale Gavin. :)But Julia is at the age where she's content do her own thing and prefers it that way. (As long as when she yells "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!", and I praise her climbing ability.)


Small Fry liked to keep a watchful eye on the twins...
Of course our time together went by too quickly but we managed to snap a picture of the crew before parting ways....

Thank you Brittany (and Paul!) for taking the time out of your busy travel plans to spend the afternoon with us! I am so grateful and blessed to count you among my real life friends.
May God bless your family during your adventurous summer!

  7. You gotta do something with that adorable pic of the girls' bloomers...maybe black and white? It's too sweet not to frame. Especially for when they're no longer on all fours! Too, too cute! Carrie, I wish you were closer to photograph my sister-in-law's wedding next month. Sigh.

  10. Pictures are great! Very special for the three terrific bloggers/photo lovers to become IRL friends!

    I just have to ask...Where did you get the flip flops with the ankle strap that Julia has on in the pictures?! I would love to buy some like that for my 2 yr old!
