Since Handley was born I've wanted a big family portrait hanging in my house. However, I knew I wanted more children, so I waited. Then Harper came along and again I contemplated a big picture. However, I really felt like we were going to add one more to our family and then our sweet baby boy, Hudson, arrived. Finally, we are complete. And finally, I have my big family portrait hanging in my house! To say I love it, is an understatement. I saw an idea for a frame I loved on Pinterest and then Jen from At First Sight Photography helped me with ordering a custom frame to showcase one of the beach pictures she took of us this summer. I walk past it every chance I get and every time I see it I stop and smile.
The temperatures have cooled off a little this week and it has been gorgeous outside. A lot of days that I have to fill the 1-2 pm hour between picking up Harper and Handley I take the kids to a nearby little playground. Today we invited Parker to come with us and it was fun for everyone. I picked up Harper and Parker from school and we were on our way! Parker's mom sent a special snack for the kids to enjoy and after eating it they were ready to play.
Parker is just the sweetest little boy and I am so thankful that he and Harper gravitated towards each other last year. I enjoyed having him spend a little time with us this afternoon just as much as Harper did. He's got the cutest personality and is such a sweetheart. They were both sad to leave when we had to head back to the school. I promised them we would do it again very soon though!
