Go Green with Little Tikes' newest playhouse!

Friday, April 22, 2016
Ok. Norah has something super awesome for you on this beautiful Friday! This is the Little Tikes Go Green Playhouse. And it's not any ordinary playhouse. When they said they were sending this to me, I had NO idea what to expect and how a little playhouse could be environmentally educational, but, wow. It's pretty awesome.

You can plant flowers. There's a reservoir that collects rain water to water those flowers. And you can grow grass on the roof. Throw some soil and grass seed up there and you'll have a green roof in no time. The sink is a real working sink. You just fill up the removable basin and the sink pump shoots the water out. I can't even BEGIN to tell you how much Norah (my biggest water loving nut) was obsessed with this feature. She would play in the water all day if I let her.

There's a solar powered light, recycling bins, skylight and 6 holes to put water bottles in for more light (reflecting off the sun). It rounds out with a working door bell and a mailbox, too!

Construction took a while (daddy put it together) but then we left it inside the house for a few weeks while I waited for spring to show up with green grass for these photos. Unfortunately, it didn't fit through our door to take outside, so this mama had to take it halfway apart to get it outside.

For some reason, Norah wasn't intrested in getting dirty and actually planting the flowers, so mama did that work. She was happy to water them though (the playhouse comes with a few little accessories--a watering can, rake, shovel and phone). I'm sure kids would have tons of fun planting "their own" garden.

It's an awesome playhouse for the 1.5-4 year range, I would say, so if you think your kiddos would love this, all you have to do is enter for a random chance to win! There are entry requirements, so please scroll through all the photos and see what they are at the END of this post!

If you give a kid a donut. Donut shop session at the Donut Kitchen; McKinney, TX Family Photographer

Friday, March 11, 2016
It had been a while (since Christmas) that I busted out the camera on all three of these little people at the same time and I racked my brain for a few weeks trying to figure out what I could do (aside from the upcoming bluebonnets). I wanted something that was "them" and finally landed on one of their most favorite things in the world: donuts.

Enter the Donut Kitchen in Mckinney, TX. One of the cutest shops we've been to that has some of the best donuts around. They were super accomodating with my request to photograph 3 crazies just before they closed and even offered up freshly made (like, finished them off while I waited) donuts. If you haven't been, the chocolate with M&M's on it is top notch.

Give some kids some donuts, of course they get hyped up. Norah wants the gooey-est one and it lands on her pretty dress within 1.5 minutes. It may not have turned out exactly as I envisioned, but I was their BFF for a little while, anyway, after allowing them donuts two days in a row :)
