100 years 🎡 .
Back story of the fair is we used to have a tradition. Every-time Anthony and I would come to the fair we would take the photo booth pictures, and this year being Penelopes first year we planned on doing that. Unfortunately they took the machines out, (I’m kinda suspecting why). We had a great time overall though , Penelope enjoyed the snow cones 🍧, the games, the rides, and her face paint 🎨 🌈 lol. We went later on at night so it wouldn’t be too much for her (or I ) and it was perfect. We both woke up late this morning and now my throat feels all the dirt that I breathed in 😒. But so glad we went. ♥️

So can we take a second to talk about @touchatrucklynchburg? What a *fantastic* idea! The kids were in truck heaven, with every truck imaginable available for them to climb into and pretend to drive. Highlights were how my son insisted on putting his seatbelt on every time, how baby girl looked in ever oversized vehicle, her swing from the crane in her sunglasses, solidifying my suspicion that I will never be as cool, and the moment an adorable cement mixer driver in front of his truck swelled with pride when he caught sight of my son wearing a cement "mix it up" shirt. 😂 #childhoodunplugged
Last night when I did that Ask Me Anything on my stories, the majority was definitely Disney related questions. A lot of people wondered how long I’ve been into Disney, how that started, my favorite rides and all that, so I’m going to do a quick get-to-know-me, Disney style. •I’ve been into Disney my whole life. Forever. My mom grew up a Disney fan so I was programmed to love it from day one and I’ve always genuinely loved it. •I don’t know how many times I’ve been to Disneyland or Disney World. The best answer I can give you is: many. •YES!! I would be so happy to help you plan your next trip!!!
•My favorite ride in Disneyland is Haunted Mansion. California Adventure is Guardians of the Galaxy. Magic Kingdom is Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Epcot is Spaceship Earth. Animal Kingdom is Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safari. Hollywood Studios is Rock n Roller Coaster.
•Dole Whips are the best treat. •My favorite characters are Belle, Alice in Wonderland, Piglet, Stitch, Marie and Forky.
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
I love you. Even when you fell into the mud at the second question post and I had used the corn husks to clean you off bc I forgot any type of wipe or Kleenex. And that you came home with almost a half of bale of hay in your pants. And that I also carried Lola the entire maze as she refused to walk.
Love mum 😂❤️ #childhoodunplugged#jaxxhinknoyes#lost#cornmaze#Saturday#weekend#jokesonmom
Omg this kid 😍♥️
He wants to walk 16 miles to raise money for his Beavers group at the end of this month. We went for a walk today for practise. I'm not gonna lie, I thought a couple of miles in he'd be moaning and want to turn around 🙈
We walked about 11 miles with zero complaining! He led the way for most of it and was ready to carry on walking after our pit stop for dinner (we would have carried on if it wasn't nearly bedtime!) The salted caramel sundae was well deserved 😜
Beavers has meant so much to him since he started. He's found somewhere he fits in, it's massively improved his confidence and he LOVES being outside and doing new things ('it's OK mummy, I don't need a coat, I'm a sea scout 😅)
It really would mean the world to him (and me) if you could sponsor his efforts. Tha k you to everyone that has sponsored us already 😘 He's so committed to this and its a tremendously worthwhile cause. The group is entirely led by volunteers and they are just wonderful people making such positive, awe-inspiring difference in these young people's lives.
A year ago I never would have imagined that he would be doing this with such enthusiasm and pizazz, but here we are 😊
Super proud ♥️♥️ https://justgiving.com/fundraising/raistrickswalk
Real life: Someone is super excited about his new big boy car seat!
For the past year we have had Hank’s car seat carrier and base installed in the third row of our van with the remaining part of the third row stowed. Every time we wanted to get him in and out of the car I had to climb in through the trunk. You can imagine the looks I got at target when I climbed into my trunk and then popped out with a baby. 😂🤷🏻♀️ The twins convertible car seats were in the middle row captain seats because they weren’t quite independent enough (a.k.a. they didn’t listen well enough to have them climb through to the back and) to climb into their seats on their own.
However, now that Hank is one they will be three in a week, we finally took the leap and rearranged our setup when we installed Hanks new convertible seat. Now the twins are forward-facing in the third row and Hank is rear-facing in the middle row passenger seat. The other middle row seat is stowed.
And holy moly do I feel like my life just got 10 times easier! I am loving this setup! It has been super easy getting everyone in and out, and a bonus is the twins aren’t directly behind the driver and passenger seat kicking us all the time!
How do y’all have your cars set up with your kids in their car seats? I’d love to hear if there may be an even better way!

Our current favorite afternoon boredom buster and it couldn't be more simple!🏡 Paper taped to a table (or floor), make some buildings out of blocks, draw roads, driveways, trees, etc, and use all the little cars you have hanging around at your house!🚘 It would also be fun on posterboard if you wanted it to be something you kept and could pull out quickly!👍
Motherhood: Giving them enough space to be independent but always lurking close enough to prevent a stick being shoved in a nostril.

From the most darling session at the Salt Lake Temple last night 💫 So fun to capture their little family at the same place where their family began, almost 7 years ago ❤️

I remember the days that I was afraid to take a shower. The days that I wore the same clothes over and over again because I felt so guilty doing something for me.
I would hurry to get clean, only shaving my armpits and then throwing my hair back in a knot on top of my head with fresh clothes just so I didn’t have to burden my parents, or my husband.
I hated leaving the house to do any sort of pampering, any kind of date night because I felt like I was suppose to be home with my kids, that that’s the life I asked for, and that I should forever just be “mom”.
It’s taken me years, and lots and lots of break downs, of my own to finally realize, “it’s okay, to do something for yourself”.
I started experimenting with my time, feeding, and changing my kids and tending to their needs first and slowly starting to leave them to themselves for small amounts of time on their own. Often times in the same room, doing dishes, or folding laundry, but I took them in toe with me so I could live out my daily life.
Even today as they are 2 and 5, they aren’t very far as I take time for myself. Sometimes you have to hit your breaking point, multiple times to realize, “damnit, I need a break.” You will hit it multiple times as a parent because as soon as those children enter your life, they become your priority, as they should, but that doesn’t mean they replace the love you had for yourself just the day before.
You owe it to them to show them balance, to teach them independence and most importantly how to love themselves.
It will be scary at first, you will feel guilty, but after a few times, loving yourself becomes a little easier, and your love for your kids becomes ten times stronger because you took the time to refill the cup that pours into them, every single day. 💕

¿Preparados para el lunes?... nosotros sí ☺️
Todos los domingos antes de ir a dormir a JM preparamos la mochila y su uniforme, le encanta que creemos rutinas ☺️
Y ahora sí apagamos las luces y nos vemos mañana❤️
This girl must smell every flower (or weed) she sees 😂 Currently ending the weekend on a high sipping the left over wine in the bath. Why do they go so fast? And I know a lot of you are ready for Autumn but I’m clinging on to the last bit of summer that Britain has to offer ☀️
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” Jeremiah 29:11 .
Happy Sunday loves ♥️ #jeremiah2911#lifewithizzyisraelandindi

We were pretty excited about the win on Thursday and now are getting ready for a 2 o’clock kick off today! I hope the halftime show will be as good as it was last time! Do you think Sienna is going to big to wear her dress again? I mean, we did win while wearing the dress, so…
Let’s go Dons!!!l

Maybe Asger won’t remember all these beautiful adventures. But maybe they are shaping him in some way anyway. Maybe respecting and appreciating nature, animals, people of all colors and adventures are parts of who he is becoming. Maybe looking back at our collections of photographs will be exactly what he needs in the future. Maybe he won’t really remember our memories from this trip, but maybe that’s not really the point 💙

We all drank from the Fountain of Youth this morning, so I’m hoping this works to make time stand still for now. That’s the legend, right?? ❤️😜 .
Headed south today! 🗺

One thing I’ve found that really helps 👶🏼 with his cold is having lots of extra baths. He just loves water so much 💦
