June Deanne’s Newborn Photo Shoot

At 8 days old, Matt and I put Junie on our bed and took pictures of her sweet newborn-ness. She only peed on the blankets twice :)June Newborn - karainthekitchen.comJune Newborn - karainthekitchen.com June Newborn - karainthekitchen.com June Newborn - karainthekitchen.com June Newborn - karainthekitchen.com June Newborn - karainthekitchen.com June Newborn - karainthekitchen.com

She is such a good baby! Super vocal and grunts a ton, and makes happy little content noises after nursing. Eats like a teenage boy, sleeps like an angel. She’s been giving us 6 hour stretches at night and I love her for it! Her hair is lighter than Ada & Lola’s was and her eyes are looking like they are going to be blue. Labor story coming soon :)

Spring Break with the KIA Sorento

I was given a car to borrow and drive in collaboration with DriveShop. As always, all opinions are 100% my own!

For Spring Break, we were fortunate enough to have the 2016 KIA Sorento to cruise around in! It was so much fun!! It drives like a car but has seating for seven. The girls loved the little back seats, it was like their own little play land!

KIA Spring Break

The Sorento took us to Los Angeles and the trip down and back was quiet and smooth. Some features I love:

  • cruise control that automatically slows you down when approaching traffic (super helpful on LA freeways)
  • lane deviation that tells you when you are drifting out of the lines
  • back up camera, camera in the front, and a bird’s eye camera angle to see if you are in the lines of a parking spot!
  • giant sunroof – literally feels like the entire roof of the car is a window
  • smooth as buttah ride

The KIA Sorento took us to the Los Angeles Temple, IMG_9045 Alameda Park in Santa Barbara, IMG_9196Nordstrom to try on the latest shoe trends,IMG_9223Sephora to try out red lips and rosy cheeks, IMG_9203and lunch at C’est Cheese! IMG_9184We also climbed Mt. Figeroa and went for a hike! It was all abloom with poppies and lupins, just beautiful! IMG_9337Sunset was unbelievable up there.IMG_9331Hiking while hugely pregnant with my little sidekicks!Thank you, DriveShop for the fun wheels to cruise around in for our Spring Break adventures!
