Musings of a mother/scuba instructor/graphic designer/musical entrepreneur. Totally in love with my husband (Two Fish) of ten years. We have two beautiful daughters (Red Fish and New Fish) and a nutty dog (Blue Fish) who help make our family complete and completely happy. W have learned to expect the unexpected and are always up for an adventure.
I am enthusiastic about living and learning. I love people who make me laugh. I have an ironic appreciation for the unique and absurd. I am an enthusiastic and untalented tap dancer with a love for new Christmas ornaments,art, the outdoors,the water, music, good books, skiing, and travel. My greatest calling in life is to be a Mom. I LOVE it!
This morning I peeked in on the girls while they were getting ready for school and found them fixing each other's hair. It was the sweetest little scene. New Fish was especially excited to fix Red Fish's hair for her. Red Fish has fixed New Fish's hair before but this the first time I've seen them both trade. It made me so happy that they are sisters.
I love finding little doodles around the house. New Fish has become more interested in art than ever.
Anytime I catch these two quietly playing together in their own little world, it makes me happy.
Trampoline time with Nixie. These two crack me up. They are pretty much the exact same size.
We went on an outing to a local farm with friends. The giant lop bunny was stolen from the farm later that day and it totally scandalized my kids. The bunny was very pregnant and was returned the next day but my kids have many conspiracy theories on where the bunny was.
Red Fish went to the baptism of one of her Best friends H.

These jammies are affectionately known as "the sparkle pups". New Fish has been wearing them since she was two and a half. They are a size three and I'm pretty sure she intends to stretch them and make them fit for the next decade. She will not hear anything about them being too small.
We spent our Spring Break in Bryce Canyon National Park. Plenty of hiking and drawing and fresh air. It was chilly but not cold and completely gorgeous. We did Sunset to Sunrise, Queen's garden, Navajo Loop, and Bristlecone Pine loop today. The girl worked on their junior ranger badges including writing a haiku about their love of Bryce Canyon. Natural bridge was a highlight.
