Then and Now

Then and Now is a brand new blog meme by Secret Mom Thoughts. Basically it's a look back at how life has changed over the years. Go to her site for all of the info and check out her wacky ways before kids.

Then: Mae's first trip to the beach 6 years ago. We left about 3 seconds after this photo was taken. She hated the sand, the sun and most definitely the cold water.



Now: No more tears, just lots of fun. On this trip to the beach, she refused to come out of the water until her lips were blue from the cold water. My how things change.

Remember how I couldn't find a new swim suit for Mae? On the same trip to Target that I found this dress, I also bought the suit in the above photos.

fun idea. Speaking of Target, I've been accumulating a long list, but nothing urgent. It's been a record long length of time since I've been there. I'm so proud of myself! 'course, that just means I'll spend 3 times the amount I meant to when I eventually get there...

Great Then and Now post. It reminded me of when Caitlin hated grass and cried every time you put her on it. And that swimsuit is too cute.

Great photos and memories. We don't have Target or Wal-Mart here in the UK, but I've been to both of them on trips to the States. I have to say, I preferred Wal-Mart.

Nick and I realized today that every member of the family except Nick were wearing Target clothes. I am always looking for clearance stuff to put the kids in for next year. I scored the best stuff! $1 shorts, tops, etc. LOVE that place.!
