five peas in a pod and a pizza/pop picnic party in the park!!!

(this blog title is a result of a combined brainstorming effort of all the girls)


today i played mommy to 4 beautiful little girls!!!!

never expected to have so much fun, truly enjoy the company of girls so young...

it was wonderful, heavenly, refreshing, and sweet!!!


wonderful mommy carin let me borrow her girls today! peyton had 3 big sisters for the day!!! she LOVED it. she loved them. i loved watching them, listening to them, learning from them. these girls are ALL heart and each one of them shared stories and insights
on what makes them tick.


it all started with peyton wanting to dress-up in big girl clothes because she was going to 'hang' with the big kids. so she found her most mature outfit (okay, i'll be honest, it kind of looks like something julia roberts would have worn in Pretty Woman, but she loves it and it and she did look cute!)
then, our adventures began...

then, we made our way to BOE!!! that's right baby, with $5 in our pockets we vowed to find a treasure and meet back to share with the group. a little breakfast at tiffany's challenge and it was OH SO FUN!!!!! i would hear things like, "oh, yeah that is pretty but it's one dollar to much, go find something else!" OR
"maybe you could get a bracelet this time, and then every time we come back you can add a charm that makes you think of naples!" OR
"come here you guys! what do you think? do you like this one or that one?" OR
one of my personal favorites...
"mommy, i'm gonna buy the heart earrings so in 50 years when i have holes in them, i can wear 'dese' special earrings!"
the team work, the counting, the decision making...it was so fun!

two peas in a pod!
we dressed-up endlessly and took a few pics before we were warned that taking pictures was against the rules:(

over an hour later...
Photobucket
sydney found a turtle bracelet, savannah found some blinged out sunglasses, peyton and summer found a couple of nifty scarves!!!

peace out!
