MoMo & Zio

We are feeling very lucky and sun-kissed after a weekend of nonstop laughs and outdoor play with MoMo and Zio! ❤️🌱🤗🌺😎

 

Silliest moment of the weekend: Zio dancing to Moana

Most instructive moment of the weekend: Harper as the “teacher” for a full book in Spanish

Best quote of the weekend: Harper, while looking over at MoMo and Zio: “He is your life.”

This weekend provided a pretty exciting glimpse of what spring in suburbia has to offer. 

We kicked it off with a Friday night porch hang...

It was the perfect combination of family and friend time with this increasingly entertaining duo. Excited to see what the months ahead have in store for us!
