a great mother's day!!

beautiful weather, a yummy brunch, a bike ride to Yomama, and pizza for dinner. 
what more could a mom ask for??

razzle dazzle

Addie is the Razzle Dazzle Superstar this week at school; this title comes with many perks, one of which is bringing a "special guest" to read to the class.  There wasn't much deliberation when it came to choosing her special guest.  There really is no one more special to her than her dad....although her face doesn't show it in these photos, she was pretty proud to show off her dad and his reading skills to her classmates.

almost 5

Addie reminds me daily that she's "almost 5, and then after that I'll be 6 and then after that I'll be seven!!!" She says it with such excitement in her voice that I can't help but be excited for her, too. Truth be told, though, I'd really, really, really love for her to stay this age forever and ever. These two photos so well capture her in her element and explain, without words, why I wish I could freeze this moment in time.

Gemelos, verdad?

My good friend Nicolle had her second little boy yesterday, a BIG boy weighing in at 9lbs 3oz.

Grant Herold Schroeder 

If you ask me, he a spitting image of his big brother, Ben.

Adorable and love the name!

Nicolle, who's who?
