Chocolate cake mess!

We made a chocolate cake today and let me tell got messy! Between Anaïs wanting to hold the hand mixer and her wanted to crack an egg... 

Love these simple moments that make them so happy!

Trip to St Thomas

I am finally posting the pictures from our wonderful Caribbean vacation in St Thomas. My old computer crashed so I fell behind on blogging...
Anyway, we went to St Thomas for a week over the holidays and it was an amazing trip. It was a nice break from the daily routine and I sure enjoyed the four of us spending a whole week of fun together.
This is the view from our hotel room balcony...can't really beat that!
The girls loved going to the beach and the hotel pool.

We went to a place called Coral World where the girls got to learn about sea life. Sam loved touching starfish.

One thing about St Thomas is that there are iguanas everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE!!! I was kind of scared at first but after a couple days you just get used to them being around.
Jeff took Sam snuba diving, which is pretty much like scuba except that the diving instructor carries the tank of oxygen on his back. I can't believe she did that, pretty brave for a 7 year old!!

We had such a good time!!! I just love how we have been able to take such fun family trips lately!! We are very lucky.
