A portrait of my children (and puppy), once a week, every week, in 2015.

Kiana: This girl was chosen this past week to be on her high school dance company presidency for her senior year!!!

Myla: Softball season is over, so she spent a little time today cleaning out her bag and prepping her tennis bag. This week she starts more training and matches!

KJ: He comes up with some creative ways to endure his chores.

Sela: I surprised her with a new pair of sandals for summer, and walked in the room to see her setting them up with a paper towel behind them to take a photo!

Wellesley Baloo: Officially six months old! Growing like a weed.

tour around my home: bathrooms, mudroom, and more details

Concrete shower, wood trim window via seejaneblogThis week’s tour around my home includes little details from all over our home that I wouldn’t include in their own separate post. Small peeks at our bathrooms, mud room, and trims are included. I have a thing for really simple, earthy details. You just can’t go wrong with such elements, and they lend themselves to the modern aesthetic in our home. Plus, they make me immediately happy. All of the concrete work is custom by a local artisan – Brian Thompson – you can find him on instagram @handcraft_concrete_design

Kiana: Sox hat for the win.

Myla: “Mom!!! What shoes should I wear? What would look good with this?” Every day. I love it.

KJ: Boys fashion is all about the socks these days.

Sela: Officially has her own little space in our house for her toys. The struggle has been real, folks. This girl doesn’t just play with toys she designs and creates and builds little worlds for everything. The past couple years we’ve been moving her creations all over the house or the puppy gets them or friends visit and take them apart, or we need to clean and move them somewhere else – and there have been sad, genuine meltdowns multiple times. Not anymore. She can create now in the privacy of her own attic playroom – hence, the American girl doll stuff is out in full force!

Wellesley Baloo: This is what she does after a bath – she hides or buries herself in a blanket to get warm and doesn’t come out for HOURS till she’s almost dry!

Australian labradoodle bike ride via seejaneblogA portrait of my children (and puppy), once a week, every week, in 2015.

Kiana: With all her might, she is hoping our family never camps or glamps again. She loves the outdoors but does not like sleeping in the outdoors. Her tent didn’t have a wood stove or heater and the cold nightly temps were not friendly.

Myla: Currently suffering from intense shin splints. For weeks she has been icing, massaging, stretching, taking it easy when it comes to running/walking/hiking, going to physical therapy and we are all hoping they heal soon!!!

KJ: While in Moab, Utah for spring break we spent one afternoon at a cool music park. KJ was laying on a blanket enjoying a sunny outdoors rest with another blanket over him – when he had his iPhone and said, “I wish I had a pillow app!” (the kids all had their own tents or tipi’s – to share with friends – we still ended up with a kid in our bed each morning!)

Sela: “Best spring break ever! Best trip ever!!!” She shed a few tears when it was time to leave Moab.

Wellesley Baloo: Her first bike ride in the bike basket the Easter Bunny brought her! She did NOT want to sit down and relax. We’re hoping with time and more rides she might like this idea!

moab | spring break 2015

We like Moab, Utah. So for the second year in a row we planned spring break in the land of red arches with friends and good food attached.

If you are thinking about going there, might I suggest:

Glamping at Moab Under Canvas.
Any and every meal at Peace Tree Juice Cafe.
Don’t miss the “Rotary Park” music park.
Rock climbing on “wall street” – shown at the beginning of our film.
Razoring on Hell’s Revenge – a 4×4 trail.
And obviously, Arches National Park and Canyonlands.
