Little Things Matter Most

These are from August 2012.  My husband took our girls swimming, but I took our son for a walk.  We both enjoyed our time together, exploring the grass, the flowers and the little bugs everywhere - and also sitting down to a picnic and a little 2 year old chat :)

Road Trip

In June 2010, we took a little trip throught the nesting grounds of the Arctic Tern in the south west part of Iceland.  They were very aggressive and their nests were basically right by the road.  I love those birds - they are so beautiful :)

Winter Fun!

We have been searching for the "right" hat for my younger daughter since August.  We have already bought two - but she didn't like them.  Finally, this past weekend, we were browsing the shops and she found the PERFECT hat - and I kind of liked it too, so now we have finally found the RIGHT hat for her :)
