Mali+Lili Kids

A few weeks ago in the midst of my 4 photoshoots - we decided to do some pictures of the kids with the Mali+Lili bags. They had been watching me take pictures of models and wanted to be a part of it. I think the pictures turned out so cute. The creator and founder of the bags is our neighbor Jo and her girls are Mali(older) and Lili(younger). Olive and Lili looooooooooooove each other. In fact - Buster looooooooves her too. It's the best having neighbors we enjoy hanging out with! It's an added bonus that I get to work with her too.

Photoshoots Galore

The last couple of weeks I've been super busy shooting for Mali+Lili, Malibu Skye, and Emperia. It's been a lot of fun since my neighbor and friend is the one in charge. I'll post the finished photos as soon as they are up on the Nordstrom site.

Tulum - Video Edition

When Olive and I went to Tulum last year, I tried to take videos as well as pictures. I figured I could sweet talk Andrew into making a little movie for us. Click here to see it.

Olive's New Hair

I'm either the worst mom or the best mom ever. Olive's been wanting pink in her hair for months. It washed out after a couple of weeks the last time we dyed it. This time we actually bleached a few pieces so that the color would really take. I almost had a heart attack when I saw how many pieces were pink!! Olive loves it - so that is all that matters.

Lake Tahoe 2017

After Christmas we headed to Lake Tahoe for a week. Our friends Anne and JC joined us with their daughter Mika. Our first stop was the Bridge Tender. It is one of our favorite places - good for kids AND adults. The zucchini fries are soooooooo delicious.

The next day we went to Squaw Valley so we could register the kids for ski lessons the following day. We had lunch and decided to ride the tram. Even though I have a fear of heights.....the views were pretty epic. I only had to close my eyes a few times.

The next day the kids were in ski school all day. I wasn't sure if Olive and Buster would like it, but they both LOVED it. They asked to go the next day. Although when they woke up the next morning I think they were both a little sore so we decided to skip it.

The following day we relaxed and spent time on the beach. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. Sunny skies and no snow...which was a far cry from when we were in Tahoe 2 years ago. Later in the afternoon we hiked Eagle Rock which had spectacular views of the lake.

The next day we headed to Incline Village to bowl. I love that my kids enjoy bowling as much as I do. 

During our trip the kids met some other little ones staying with their grandparents. Of course Olive was over the moon to have another 7 year old to play with. They spent 3 days running around the beach trying to skip rocks, building a snowman, and collecting treasures. It was pretty cute. Olive even wrote a letter to Claire (the 7 year old). Sadly, she hasn't gotten a letter back.

On the day we headed home we went to the lookout at Emerald Bay for one last view of the lake. All in all it was a great trip that we all enjoyed. We can't wait to go back!
