Checking out little hidden parks

q14a8514-edit

Trying to back track on some blog posts here. So hard to keep up with everything this time of year!

q14a8515-edit

These pictures are from the end of October when I went out scouting new photoshoot locations

q14a8517

This park was a nice little find off the beaten path. The kids loved it.

q14a8521-edit

You know, when they weren’t fighting.

q14a8524-edit

Cole and Eva have been fighting so much lately it makes me crazy.

q14a8528

Stinkers

q14a8531

There was a creek and a footbridge and lots of climbing.

q14a8535

I can’t wait to go back for a real photoshoot

At this point Eva was starting to get out of hand and Andy just wanted to go watch the Buckeye game.

Pumpkin Carving Party

Hannah - are you doing something different? I’ve noticed a change in your images. They look great. Hope all is well, I never sit down long enough to comment but I still try to save up your posts and read them ๐Ÿ™‚

House Inspiration

After we finished our renovation we were so sick of it that we have just put it on hold for the past year +

But now we are starting to get the urge to get it wrapped up and I have been looking for inspiration. I found this house on Pinterest and it has so many qualities that our house has (and so many that I would LOVE for it have). Here are a few of them…

One of the things we need to do is build a wall of builtins and storage for the family room. We have been living with our tv sitting on the Pottery Barn storage we had in our playroom in Chapel Hill but it would be so nice to get it the way we want it.

I threw in a picture of the kitchen since it is right off the family room like ours with the same lights and cabinets and colors ๐Ÿ™‚

And this office/carftroom. Love

And the mudroom. It’s our next project- and this is exactly what I want.
