Spring Fever

The flowers are in full bloom here in California.  I have been in awe lately, while driving around the valley.   The beautiful yellow, orange, pink, white and purple flowers have been absolutely blowing my mind.  This year more than ever, I have made sure to stop and appreciate each season.  They don't last long around here.  Over the weekend Tyson and I decided to load the girls in the car and capture the beauty that is currently surrounding us.  P was loving every second.  She couldn't contain her excitement from squealing out of her, as she collected tiny bouquets of flowers.  She loved them so much she tried eating them.  I couldn't get her to take the stems out of her mouth.  As we drove past the orchards she sang "popcorn popping on the apricot tree."  This spring weather has me all sorts of giddy inside.
^^^ Ty took this picture, I think it's my favorite one to date. ^^^
 We let Lucy sleep in the car while P went exploring with her daddy for a bit.  These two together get me every time.
 We decided to wake the little miss up to capture some pics with her big sis.  Penelope has this thing about matching me and her sister.  It's rather adorable.  If I am wearing something or baby is wearing something in particular, she wants to be just like us.  My friend and shop owner of June + Penny sent us the most darling matching bracelets.  I am literally obsessed with every creation of hers.  I couldn't get P's on quick enough.  She hasn't taken it off since.  I'm pretty sure I know what's going in my girls Easter baskets!
^^^ These baby's rolls have me totally smitten. ^^^ 
I'm so happy Ty captured this picture of me and my girls.  I love and cherish them more than I could ever describe.  Being their mama is so difficult at times, but honestly the most rewarding thing I have ever done.  The inspire me to work hard and love me unconditionally, even with all of my flaws.  Each day they let me start fresh and help inspire me to better myself for them every day.  I couldn't imagine my life any other way.
