Photo Friday

I thought this would be fun to do. I have a simple point and shoot camera, but I think with some editing, even point and shoot photos can be beautiful :)

This weeks theme was Cooking and beverages!

I'm calling this beauty "Pan sauce in Cast iron"

Rowan's Mural

Its April and its snowing outside today. Total ughness!

Since I refuse to take my flip flops off, we decided to stay in doors today and tackle a craft project I've been dying to do in Rowan's room for a while.

She had a big blank wall and a low ceiling where her bed sits, so today, we beautified it :)

I love how it came out, and now when you sit on the floor in front of her bed to play, you feel like your actually sitting under a tree.

Simple Life

We live a simple life here in the mountains of NH which means we do a lot of outdoor activities. Now this isn't always by choice on my part. City girl misses her mall!!!

But my daughter is growing up with fresh air in her lungs and she's learning to enjoy the beauty of nature.

One of her favorite activities is fishing. She loves walking around the woods, exploring cold mountain streams with her toes, and most of all devouring little fried fishies she catches and kills with her Gramps.

Yesterday Gramps chased down a fish stocking truck, and found where they were dumping farmed fish into a local stream... so he ran home, grabbed all his fishing gear and loaded us into the car for a bit-o-fishing.

We only caught one little tiny brook trout, but we kept him, and later when we got home, Rowan thoroughly enjoyed him all fried up in some butter... Mmmmmmm

I started this blog 2 years ago.

Mostly because my friend Katrina had one and I'm a follower like that.

(Of course now her blog is phenominal and practically famous and I've got like what? 15 followers? Oh but I do love all 15 of you so dearly!)

Anyhow back to the point. I started this blog 2 years ago when my baby girl turned 2. And well, now she's four *sobbing uncontrollably*

This weekend we had her big birthday bash. Once again our venue was the Children's Musuem of NH in Dover. I just adore it and we've had all of her birthdays there. Many of her wonderful friends came including her two BFF's Lorelei and Lily. Watching the three of them interact was priceless! They no longer play in tandum, they play and interact with one another. Their conversations are borederline adorable!!!

Rowan got a gazzillion wonder gifts and I'm still trying to find places to put them all... Which is quite pointless as she immediatly drags it back out once I've found it a home.

She had such a wonderful day and the smile never left her face. Happy Birthday baby girl!!!

Oh I should also mention that the party was Rock Star themed.. which is why her friends were all dressed up :)

I haven't been doing much blogging lately. Truth be told its because we have slower than death satelite internet here in the sticks and uploading pics takes forever. Poor excuse eh?

Here is a tiny snippet into what our days have been like lately.

Happy Easter!

We're jetting out soon to my In-Laws for Easter day, but I wanted to swing by and wish you all a wonderful holday!

And of course leave you with a few pictures of my adorable little Rowan as she woke up this morning in a frenzy to find her basket.

Basket Ready to be hidden!

Excited child, at the foot of my bed at 7am, begging for help to find her basket.

Look!!! Mama its in the shower! Isn't that silly!!
