Girly Fashion with Skechers

With having 3 girls each of them has a different style.  They couldn't be any different from each other.  Kaylee is a combo of girly and tomboy, but not too much of one or the other.  Keira is what we call our tomboy hippie and Kendall is the "girly" one.  The one who loves to wear dresses, get her hair curled and have blush put on.  I love that each of them have different styles, it makes dressing them that much more fun!
We have #partnered with Skechers and each of the girls (including mommy) got to pick out shoes.  I knew Kendall would pick something with bows or something girly on the shoes. So I wasn't surprised when she picked the grey with hearts and little pink bow twinkle toes (Twinkle Toes: Doodle Days)  They are seriously the cutest, the Velcro on them makes it easy for her to put them on herself, they also have a zipper down the side to make it that much easier as well.  At 4 she's become more independent and has to do things herself, so her being able to put her shoes on easily is a must (she is pretty stubborn).  She's also gotten to that age where fashion matters and she has some what of a say in what she wears.  I love that the grey shoes will match a lot of stuff in her wardrobe so we'll be able to wear them a lot.  High tops & dresses are a favorite of mine, this outfit was so fun and girly to put together.

Miss Personality

Miss Personality describes Kendall to a tee!
She is full of sass, I mean a lot of sass, stubbornness that's cute (most of the time), so silly I mean she can make me laugh multiple times a day and so incredibly loving.  I wish there was a freeze button, so I could enjoy her little silliness and sassy self.  Freeze time so she'd always want snuggle with me and think I'm cool, cause we all now in a couple years I wont be as cool as she thinks I am now!  I ask her everyday how she gets so cute and she tells me, from heart melted. 
Taking pictures is a way for me to freeze those special memories and all those little moments I never want to forget.  My older girls could care less about taking pictures but I still make them take some for me so that I have those memories and cause you can never have to many pictures of your kids plastered all over your walls.  But Kendall she loves to be in front of the camera which I love cause I love taking pictures, we turn on some music and she rocks out while I snap away, which always turn out to be some of the best pictures of her.

It has been raining like cats and dogs here in CA for the past 2 weeks, its crazy!  The flooding and really high winds has left us with a little bit of cabin fever!  So when we had a small break in the rain her headed outside for a little dance party and to get some fresh air.  Even just heading outside in your own front yard can be like a little vacay when you've been cooped up.
 With all this rain and crazy winds I am totally excited to be heading to Hawaii with my love in 19 days.  Oh it's going to be so amazing, so relaxing and so much fun.  If you've been to Kona, HI let me know of some good places to eat or visit.  I will miss the girls terribly, they will be staying with Jason's parents for that time.  They are going to have a blast with them but I'll miss them like crazy, this trip will be the second time we've been away from them for this long.  Anyone else excited to go on vacations with there husband but know as soon as they leave they will miss those kiddos like crazy, yeah me too, I'm already feeling that way.

Toddler/Kid App Review: Kidlo Land

* I was given the app for 6 months free in return for review, all opinions are mine!
If your kids are anything like mine then they like to play on the IPad.
My kids are allowed to play 30 minutes of IPad time a day, as long as they are good, there homework is done and there rooms are cleaned up.  We have 2 IPads, which can turn into a fight with having 3 kids but they do pretty darn good about sharing.  On our IPads you'll find educational games, we don't allow to many other games to be added that aren't at least teaching them something.

When Kidlo Land reached out and asked if we wanted to try there toddler/preschool age app for 6 months, I had to say yes.  With Kendall being home I try and do some tot school with her two or three times a week, for about 30 minutes.  I knew incorporating this app into our tot school would not only help this mama out but would also help her out in the process.  Its fun, colorful, musical and all things to keep kids interested while also learning, which is key for any toddler with the attention span of 5 seconds.  She can also play the app when we aren't doing tot school as well.

Since starting the app she has learned lots of new rhyming songs, letters, numbers, a little bit of adding, color sorting, matching and so much more.  I would totally recommend this app.  This app is the top preschool app for kids 5 and under (although my older girls play with it and love it as well), it includes nursery rhymes, abc's, phonics, stories, games, activities, colors, animals, etc.  They recently won Mom's Choice Gold Award, which for this mom who doesn't like to much IPad time thinks its awesome. 

I love that with this app you can download certain content that can be used without wifi , which is perfect for those long road trips, doctor office visits where you know you'll be there for awhile or long walks through Target when you want your kid to behave and walk around in silence (moms you know what I'm talking about!) 
If you want to try this app out here are the links
The Kidlo Land app is free to download, and the free content is good but if you want the full version of the app you need to purchase a subscription.  The subscription to the games gives you full access to many more nursery rhymes, games and songs.  It really is a great app for toddlers and totally would recommend it.
