I’m trying to clean out the photos from my phone to make room for the new ones. It’s the hardest thing todo, to delete these little moments. Most of them wouldn’t make good prints or even be much to look at years down the road in a photo book but its the blurry low light memories that are the hardest for me to purge. While the pictures seem to be from so long ago and girls have changed so much, the pictures only go back to the beginning of the summer. Some of my favorite days so far with the girls and my little family were this summer. Enjoying the outdoors (when it wasn’t raining) picnics, festivals and friends. I know we will have more days to remember but it still makes me sad that time passes so quickly and what was yesterday will never be again.
We have been enjoying our fun filled weekend of spending time together with our little family. We went to the splash park and are going back again, spent the day at the lake with friends, and sitting out back on our fab new deck! Which I will share this week!
Enjoy your Monday off!
Israel is in the desert, it’s hot. Sure they have a winter when it gets cool, even chilly in the northern part of the country but not in August. No, in August Israel is hot, north to south and east to west. It’s just plain hot. I think it was about 100 degrees everyday, temperature is measured in Celsius over there and I am not too good at math, so it may have been hotter. It felt like it.
When the weather man says it’s going to be 37 to figure out the temp in degrees you double it, then subtract a tenth of that total and add thirty-two. So it would be 99 degrees or HOT.
We wanted to take the girls out and do stuff but it was so hot it just wasn’t fair to do that to them, being outside during mid day.
One day we went to a mall. While we were there we visited the baby store, Shilav, that had a little play pen with a couple of kids in it. I put in my kids and the had a ball. They explored every inch of the four by four area and loved every minute of it.
The next day my mother in law and sister in law took them to a different mall with a similar play area but much larger.
And a few days later we went back again. Later in the week we went to another place with a whole room of play equipyement just for babies, the girls played hard and had so much fun.
My question is do these type of indoor playgrounds exit in the US? Where? I know there are classes, but what about a big open space with sensory objects for babies to roam around and learn on thier own?
We had such an amazing time over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. We took the girls and drove five hours to the South Carolina coast where we hung out for three days and played with babies and friends in a rented house on Hilton Head island. The girls are definitely water babies, they loved the beach, ocean and the pool. They loved our long walks on the sand, the Bob (our stroller) is amazing on the beach! We recapped our packing efforts on our way home and only forgot one thing, the disposable changing pads, and would only change one thing, bring a larger travel soap and lotion for the babies. Here are some of my favorites from our days at the beach.

Sometimes I just can’t help my self! When I came home and saw Yael had put the babies in these new summer sunsuits from Carter’s I had to take pictures of thier cuteness on our new picnic blanket. I love how thier little faces pop off the page because thier little bodies almost blend in to the background. Twins are fun. Modified with Instagram.
