Day 2 of Happiness - Watching my girls play

Today is day 2 of my happiness challenge and to take photos of things that make me happy/or smile. One memory I will always cherish is that I love watching my girls play. I wish it happened more often but usually it ends up in a battle of who gets what toy and mommy has to break up the fight. Still I know in their heart of hearts that they love each other so much and one day I hope they will be best friends and pick each other up when one is down. That is truly what family is meant to be for.

Watching Katie Play

One of the most amazing moments in your life is to just sit and watch your daughter play. She is so sweet, fun and so full of imagination. And I must be the coolest mommy ever to let my daughter jump on her bed cause pretty sure I would have been grounded if I were a kid! :)

The reason for these pictures is I took on a 100 day challenge. To take photos of things that make you happy. I had a endless list of things I wanted to photograph but today the sun was shining through the house (YAY! SUNSHINE!) Katie was in a GREAT mood and it was a must to take pictures of her because that is HAPPINESS. Seeing your daughter smile brings a smile to my face and that is the start of my hundred day challenge.

Here I am trying to lay her down for naptime.... only she thinks it's time to play peek a boo :)

I am in my room folding laundry and I here her giggling and this is my view. She is trying to get my attention. I don't think she will nap today. LOL

Hi Mommy! Aren't I adorable

Madison wearing my Wedding Dress

Oh isn't this every mom's dream?!? Well except maybe not at 5 years of age :) But Madison and I had fun playing dress up in my wedding dress. Love this girl and her willingness to pose and be silly for me. I think she had fun though :)

I realize I need to do some serious editing to extend the floor but I figured if I ever printed these out (someday!) Then I will do it then. But for now I am just blogging away and posting all my images straight out of the camera cause I am so behind I don't have time to process images. LOL

My Beach Babes!!!

Ohhhhh I miss summer!! :( I won't even post words... because the smiles say it all :)

Annual Roper Camping Trip! June 2013

Oh my goodness! Some more photos I completely forgot about! I am so happy to find these. Here I am in the cold midst of winter and I found these and it just makes me look forward to summer!! Awe I can't wait and we had so much fun (as always) spending the weekend with our family and watching the cousins play! It is what life is all about!

Love the drive to our camping spot. Finally I actually stopped on the side of the road to capture these! :) 


Right after I washed her face she did this. Brat!

Oh aren't you cute! My lil messy girl. She thinks it's funny... I give up... she is destined to be dirty on our camping trip

Make - Up.... dirt.... up that's my girl :)

Landing on the nest to feed her babies! It was so awesome! Taken with my telephoto. It was super far away so I wish I could have been closer but the river kind of blocked my path :)

Well I think she is having fun :) Total beach babe right here LOL

We threw Lucky in :) We do this every year cause otherwise she won't go in the water

So glad we bought the raft. The kids had a blast in it

Covering herself in sand

Who has the biggest muscles????

Oh I think the girls got this in the bag. Look at those muscles!

cousins playing!! 

love this girl she is so beautiful just like her mama

Found this huge bear just wandering around :) 

no words here... I guess we don't feed our kids so they resort to eating sand.

Collecting water for her sand castle... I think her swimsuit is a little big :) But Madison loves this swimming suit so I let her wear it even though she has a brand new one!

Oh man this is going to be funny

oh yeah? Well take this

HAHAHA Boys are too funny
