Superhero Princesses

Sophie went to a fun super hero birthday party a couple weeks ago. She was so excited to see that the cape that everyone got had an "S" on it. I don't know if she realized the "S" was for Superhero, but I'm not going to tell her it didn't mean Sophie.

The girls were getting antsy one Sunday afternoon so Joseph created a spider's web on the stairs with some yarn. The girls had to try to get down the stairs without touching the web. This entertained them for quite a long time. I have such a creative husband!

Avery loves to color and spends many an hour in this spot coloring not just pages but also the counter and her whole body with her markers. She has stopped taking naps during the day but has a hard time making it through the whole day until her 7:30 bedtime without falling asleep for a few minutes around 4 or 5. It was so cute to watch her fall asleep on her books this day. I especially love the blue marker on her forehead.

Sophie got to take home Mr. Froggy from school one day to document what he got to spend the day doing with us. Here he is watching a little Word World or Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with the girls.

We often meet up with our friends the Hyers at the park and one day I commented to Shannon when the dreaded ice cream truck pulled into the parking lot that my kids still didn't know what that truck was and I hoped we could keep them in the dark as long as possible. So I had to laugh when I got a text and this picture from her one Saturday when Joseph had taken Sophie and Avery to the park and seen the Hyers there that, "They know what the ice cream truck is now! Those dang Hyers are such a bad influence!" She bought them ice cream, and now they ask me for it whenever we see the truck. Dang Hyers indeed--hahahaha.

And to close, here's a video of the girls meeting Princess Tiana at Disneyland. I love her southern accent. And I love Sophie's backpack that she insisted on taking with her, packed full of activities to keep her busy in the car, as well as a burp rag for William. Such a mamacita.

This is all adorable. Sorry Avery doesn't nap anymore. I'm so jealous of the warm weather-Sophie in a sun dress with ice-cream! We'll have to copy that spider web activity.

Love the spider web on the stairs. I'll have to keep that in mind!

I need to try the spider web, my kids would love that. Such a creative and fun family.
