• What's in Our Diaper Bag

    I’ll start out by saying we love our physical diaper bag (here’s a similar one). We initially got it because Myke wanted a neutral looking one so it wouldn’t look too weird with him carrying it. I didn’t mind what the diaper bag looked like, as long as it had all the components I needed. Currently, Olivia doesn’t require much when we go out, but Meghan still needs a few extra things.

  • Mini Adventure: California State Railroad Museum

    “We’re going on an adventure!” Allison said as she opened the door to the girl’s room on a Saturday morning. Still a little sleepy from their nap the girls looked at us and smiled. Olivia started bouncing in her bed and Meghan pointed at us repeating her current favorite phrase “Dada dada dada”.

I wake them up, and we put on our slippers and I start making breakfast. It’s always the same breakfast, every Saturday. Bacon, scrambled eggs, and toast with my personal favorite, blackberry jam.
