Photo Dump Wednesday: Mothers and Daughters

Whew! We are finally in the middle of the week. I am so glad we get a holiday this month. I am VERY MUCH looking forward to it. 

Last week, JOE had a great time at the library. I love that she learns new things each day and we are often greeted with her new found knowledge when we get home.

Check out my very stylish JOE at the library. And incase you didn't notice, look at JAE's face in the corner. Priceless! 

The girls got to go to the local mall last Friday. Check out my brave child. While JOE REFUSED to ride this, JAE couldn't wait! She is definitely my adventurous one. 

Yup. JAE climbs around with all the big kids. Although, it often scares me since I know her brain hasn't matured enough to know what could be dangerous. 

And as much as she is a tom-boy, she is also a girly girl! I made this dress for AyoBE and asked her if she wanted to be my model. She got so excited and when I said "OK, now pose!" This is what she did. LOVE HER!!!

My little models!

On our way to dance last Saturday. We were cheesing it for the camera :-D. I love that she makes a face whenever I try to take a selfie in the car. I'm sure JAE will be doing the same thing once she is old enough and forward facing. 

On Saturday, I decided to take the one who first made me a mother out for a pre-mother's day celebration. It was an awesome one on one time with my little JOE and I hope to do this more often with her and eventually with JAE when she is older because we both enjoyed ourselves. 

JOE got her first mani/pedi. She absolutely LOVED it! So much so that she said she'd like to try out the "orange frog" next time. The pedicure seat was set up in the shape of a frog and my child is already planning for her next mani/pedi.

I let her pick out her colors and mine as well. She did a great job!

Mommy/daughter selfie at the nail salon. 

Check out her precious little toes! And yes, she asked for them to alternate the colors.

Afterwards, we went for frozen yogurt. I also let her pick out what she wanted. She made her choices down to the sprinkles.

I just love the sparkles on her fingers. Too cute!

There is a water wall at the frozen yogurt place and JOE wanted to take a picture in front of it. 

She loved posing for the camera. Complete with her yoga pose.

Then she asked for a picture with me. I just love her so much!

We did some shopping after and she asked that we go to the movies and then "ice cream" next time. I'll say it was definitely a successful outing. She was out like a light once we got in the car.

Mother's day was the next day and everyone had matching clothing items. Yes, we stay coordinated! :-D.

The girls had matching skirts and hair bows. J had a matching bow tie and I had a matching hair bow and sash. Oh and JAE had a bracelet bag that she just loved carrying.

J ordered me this very thoughtful gift basket that came complete with my favorite chocolate and wine. YAY!

The E squad!


The original J team!

Overall, Mother's day was memorable and we had a great weekend as a family. I hope you had a nice weekend as well.
