Ten on Ten: 10 pictures on the 10th day of the month!
{Document a snapshot of your life & find beauty among the ordinary things in your day!}

Today wasn't a very exciting day, a pretty normal day, which starts off with coffee, of course.
And, my favorite creamer of all time. Coffemate French Vanilla. Fat Free. YUM.
Every morning when the girls wake up, we bring them into our room to watch a show in our bed while we get ready for work. Then, Kevin carries them downstairs. Each morning, they sing, "All aboard the Daddy Train!" as they go downstairs for breakfast.
At school & this is a picture of our Pi Day poster in my classroom. Monday is Pi Day (3.14) and the Math Department is selling pie grams! That's how we roll!
View of the gorgeous green hills in our area.
The Spring here in Northern California is so beautiful because all of the hills are so incredibly green!
But, the allergies are killer! Lots of pollen & grass in the air. My sinuses are angry!
After Claire got up from her nap, it was time to head to our happy place, Target!
While at Target we bought a very special toy.
Last Fall, Claire did a photo shoot for a new Leap Frog toy that was coming out in Early 2011.
The toy came out & Claire was on the box, so I had to buy one!
Here she is pointing to herself.
{Click HERE to see a close up of the box}

Dinner Time! Taco Soup for this chilly Spring night.
We can't forget about Bo Bo the Wonder Dog who turned 6 last week & we totally neglected her birthday. Oops. Sorry, Boulder!

This is my 30th time participating in 10 on 10!
That is 30 straight months of doing this project!
I love the 10th of the month & look forward to documenting our day through pictures.

Hope you had a great 10th....so happy tomorrow is FRIDAY!

  4. Loved your Ten on Ten! (Visiting from Three Big Brothers.) Yes, we're going to England Wednesday. We are fortunate to live in Germany for a few years (husband's Army) and so we're able to just pack up the car and head over the channel using a ferry. Will do all the touristy things I can possibly do!! :) Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully my photography will improve to be as beautiful as yours some day.

    ReplyDelete
  26. DYING over the comment about the caboose on the Daddy Train!!! Ahahaha!!! Whew...

    Our day looks exactly like yours at the beginning-- coffee and non-fat French Vanilla Coffeemate. I am a new convert. How did I not know coffee before? And how did I ever stay awake?

    Bribery will be involved in our photo shoot on Sunday... which, apparently, is going to be in the rain. Searching for a yellow umbrella... :(

  33. i am jealous of the green hills. we had snow monday that melted very quickly but it is still very brown. we need some warmer days to get the green.

    i love the daddy train :o)

    the pi day is such a clever idea.

    how cool that your daughter was on the leapfrog box. fun!

    thanks for stopping by. i loved all of your pictures. you have a beautiful family.

    ReplyDelete
  34. How very cool that your little girl is on the box! They should have given her one just for being on it. I loved your shots. The one going down the stairs with daddy is just so sweet. Congrats on it being your 30th, it was my first :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh... what a sweet dog! I have a soft spot for labs. Our family dog is a lab... and we adore him! Loved your Ten. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I want to ride the daddy train.

  37. That's too funny about the names Katelyn and Luke. What's even weirder is my Katelynn was going to be Kate but last minute we went with Katelynn. I thought for sure we would just end up calling her Kate but for some reason Katelynn has stuck.

    Regardless Kate is a beautiful name, one of my very favorites and Claire is right up there too. What darling girls you have!
