Say cheese.

Aug 24, 2015

We had been trying several times to have our family pictures done, but weather, a sick baby, etc. always got in the way. Finally two weeks before Kash turned one, we nailed down a session. They called for rain ALL day, so we figured, here we go again. Another wash…literally. Not this time, the clouds hovered but no rain. So, say cheeeeeeeeeeese!

The talented Bailey Smith captured the moments. Had to share- she is pretty darn amazing. Jumped in the water with clothes on just to get a shot. Yes ma’am! http://www.baileykatesmith.com View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock View More: http://baileykatesmith.pass.us/monicahancock

Caprese Pasta in one pot!

Aug 8, 2015

Made this pasta dish the other night. It was light (well I added more cheese than it requested) tasty and best of all super easy to make. It didn’t take long at all! Had to share- enjoy!

You’ve got mail.

Jul 30, 2015

Ok, so ‘you’ve got mail’ is so aol style and yes, I still have an aol account.  I’m so cool! And no, I do not pay for it. It is free these days. And yes, I get made fun of alllllll the time. However, I have had it for over 15 years and so many people have it, that I cannot change it. Right? Right.

Anywho, I have been meaning to get Kash man an email address since…well literally he was born. Hello a year later I finally did it. Can you tell I am on it- watch out now. So today I went through with it. And guess what? It is GMAIL!!! I felt like it is a cool way to send him notes from my phone, at home, wherever it may be. If I just want to tell him what he did that day, how he acted, new worlds he said or how much I love him…I can just send him an email. Kind of like the new age journal.

Well I sent him his first email today and I cried. Just seeing it in writing and signing off as ‘mom’. Talk about pulling at your heart strings. gmailblog

How many times can one go to the park?

Jul 28, 2015

I never knew how much I loved a park until a baby, now toddler came into my life! We didn’t take him a lot when he was first born obviously. How many newborns do you see with their hands up flying down the slide? Now that would be a sight!

Since Kash man has gotten bigger, we tend to end up at the park weekly. I am so grateful for these spaces. The little playgrounds geared for youngsters, food, a nice little picnic table, fresh air and most of all, other parents and kids. You don’t feel like a fish out of water when your child decides to get a little ornery. We are all in this together, right?

 

Here are a few pictures from our picnic on Sunday. He doesn’t smile on que…I mean hello, there are ants and bugs to look at!kashpark
