Keeping It Real

One of the reasons I enjoy blogging so much, is seeing the blessed lives so many people have. I have walked away from my computer inspired so many times by your crafts, your kids, your fashions, and your homes. However, sometimes I think we (and by that I mean ME) tend to present ourselves in a pretty little package to the world.

But, LETS BE REAL. Life ain't always pretty. It's an endless cycle of poopy diapers, runny noses, and kitchen messes. So, for our final trip to the orchard this fall, I decided to leave behind the cute clothes, the matching outfits, and the pretense.

So in sweat outfits we hit the hay...LITERALLY!


There weren't 5 billion picture retakes to get a cute pose...
or even a hair combing involved.

Instead, there was jumping in the hay,

a dirty little boy,

and lots of silly playing.


There was also animal petting,


tire sitting ,

and big boy pretending!


Oh, we can't forget fort playing,


swing-set sliding,


or slushy drinking.


I love my "picture perfect" moments with Eli, but sometimes it's fun just Keeping It Real!!!
