It’s been along time since we did a family style post {sorry for the absence}, since my mister is back to working normal hours {yay!!}, and also has a few days off {bigger yay!!!!}. I have my photographer back {and by default my husband;)}.

On Sunday when we went out for an evening walk {all 4 of us!}, Chris brought the camera. I couldn’t convince him to come out from behind the camera but this is what Harlow, King {a bit of King}, and I wore…

Harlow ~ Dress: Zara Baby…Socks: H&M…Shoes: Zara Baby

Me ~ Vest: H&M…Dress: Zara…Socks: H&M…Boots: Zara…Bag: c/o THEIT

*though THEIT is a sponsor of Baby Blackbird, I truly adore this bag {my own personal option}. It’s the most stylish and best camera bag I have ever owned, I don’t have alot of camera gear so it also doubles as a diaper bag {since I have alot of diapers}. Harlow also really digs this bag, always trying to snatch it from me and carry it herself.

Harlow is wearing the dress she wore oh her first Birthday, by far my fav dress she has owned so far, so glad it still fits. I love fall, but mostly fall transition. I love mixing summer clothes with new {and old fall clothes}, finding new ways to wear old clothes, it really is the best season of the year.

What’s your favourite season? Silly question, it’s fall right? 😉

Kingston’s birthday was last Sunday and one of his gifts was a very special play teepee (If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you might have already seen a peek at this). One in which I made my self, of course it made it 100 times better seeing how much both kids loved it after putting my own love into it. The teepee it self was so easy to make it was almost laughable, I mean cause it looks like it should be tough {and it’s no sew, easy peasy} .

DIY play tee pee, diy kids teepee, homemade play teepee, 3 year old birthday gift

I followed two awesome tutorial’s: Smile and Wave and Sew, Mama, Sew! you will find all the supplies and steps on these great blogs. Both pretty close, but really great and easy to follow. I used leather for everything, the lacing, securing the poles to the fabric and to eachother.

DIY play tee pee, diy kids teepee, homemade play teepee, 3 year old birthday gift Once I finally set King’s {automatically Harlow’s too} new teepee in the their room I finished the corner off with a little clothes line, a little carpet {more to act as something to help keep the poles from slipping on the hardwood}, and our little dollar store bird house craft mobile {keeping up the theme of keeping all our artwork handmade}. It’s currently the only totally finished corner in their room {and by default our fav}.

The day after I too these pictures I switched out the box holding the stuffies with a giant wicker basket  {which I’ve been having a hard time keeping the kids out of}.

Kingston turned three last Sunday. It was a special day for all of us, but mostly our sweet little boy. Instead of having a giant party we decided to instead make the entire day all about Kingston and do all the things he loves to do most of all; Balloon room, pancake breakfast, nap time {well that one was more for mom and dads sanity}, ferry ride, amusement park rides, pizza lunch, dinner with amazing friends and family {chicken fingers for King}, and many more things.

It was a fantastic day and all of us had a blast.

I swear I didn’t touch up Harlow’s eyes they just really are that blue, also shes staring out the window of the ferry “oohhing and awwwing” at the lake.

King and dad went on a ton of rides, but this tea cup photo pretty much summed up how much fun we all and especially king had.

My mom {who sadly had to go back home} was such a great photographer that day, she took tons of photos, most of her’s turned out better then mine! Thank you mom!

We were lucky enough to spend the day and evening with great friends, Kingston was so happy to have you guys there.

I am pretty excited about this weekend, my husband actually has it off, and a few days in the next couple weeks. I cannot wait to spend some time with him, and as a family. Also it will be extra nice to have my dish boy back. 😉

Have a great Saturday!!

xoxo
