So it was a busy weekend!
Lila will be five in June (gasp) so we thought maybe it was time for her first-ever real, not-in-our-courtyard haircut.
Here’s the little lady before.
And the requisite back-of-the-head shot. (It was wavy because it was in a braid.)
Here we are at the salon. The nail tech’s photo bomb makes my life. They were all so nice.
She wasn’t so sure of the whole process.
But she did so well. I love this picture because she looks like a baby still, no?
Here’s the after.
Did we cut any off? Yep – just a couple of inches, though.
She actually asked, “Is my hair as short as Vivi’s???”
Sweet girl, she didn’t trust the mirror. I get it.
So after that, we grabbed Vivi and her Daddy and we all headed down to Cabo to buy some paint at Home Depot, some plants at our favorite nursery and then we stopped at this place – it’s pretty amazing. A cornucopia of Mexican decor. Amazing. I can’t believe we’ve lived here for nearly 8 years and haven’t ever been there! (We’ve driven past it 3 trillion times saying, “Yeah, we should go there…”)
I mean, you don’t even know. Rooms upon rooms upon spaces upon spaces of stuff. Cool stuff.
I couldn’t take too many pictures because I was too busy trying to ensure that my children a.) didn’t break something (!!) or b.) fall off of a third-floor terrace that had no railings. (Yay, Mexico!)
So after that, we tried a new-to-us taco place.
A good group photo was elusive.
Then we headed home.
Wee-vee was exhausted.
(How cute are those little chair stacked next to Vivienne? Adorable.)
Lila holding Petal. (Petal is wearing a dress made out of the arm of a pair of footy-pajamas that Lila’s Mimi bought her two years ago. The zipper broke in the pj’s so Lila (naturally) lost it so we had to fashion pj’s for Petal (also naturally.)
(Petal is wearing a dress.)
They’re using the baby blankets that I made for them. I think I started Lila’s 2 years before she was born.
So, here’s the sketchy looking courtyard dirt section before.
Nice pipe on the top, right?
First I planted these.
Next, I planted these silvery-looking things. What are they? [shrugs shoulders]
You might not be able to see, but they have a very delicate purple flower.
They’re precious. What are they? [shrugs shoulders again]
There it is. Un-mulched.
The final row has lovely yellow flowers. They’re so cute.
Anywho, so I organized and removed EVERYTHING without a child getting all up in my tasks.
It was HEAVEN. (Thank you, B!)
Farewell, celery green that I was so excited about when we were preparing for Lila’s birth 5 years ago.
So, the ladies fancied the middle paint option, “candy floss.”
It looks more like this…
So, after the organizing and paint prep, I picked the ladies up from their cousins’ house.
Vivi fell asleep on the 4-minute drive home.
And more impressively, she continued sleeping throughout the transition from the car to the house to the couch.
This was 5:30 p.m. We finally had our time change yesterday, too. So this made for a long night…
Sorry, I had to get a closer shot.
