"You smell delicious" - A Day in the Life

What is the best compliment you've ever received? After a day with this family, I'm pretty sure mine is officially:

"You smell delicious!" - three year old, T.

What could ever top that?!

I was so excited to spend the day with this family. We spent the morning making pancakes from scratch and dancing to all of T's requests, including my new favorite- Lava, from the short film.

That song quickly became the song of the day as we headed out on a trip to the Morris Arboretum to see their holiday display. (This is also when T let me know how delicious I smelled. Like honey, to be specific.)

When we returned, it was time for lunch and naps for the boys (dad included!).

The weather was beautiful, and we were able to spend the rest of the afternoon and early evening out in the backyard on the swing, feeding the chickens, and enjoying a fire. I could tell this was their happy place!

But before we knew it, the day was at an end! Soon it was time for bath, stories, and bed. I was actually pretty bummed to leave; I could've used more time by that fire!

I adore this family. These boys are so obviously loved and their parents are so playful with them. It was truly a joy to be a part of their family for a day! Feel free to bump over the the Book your Session tab if you're interested in having pictures like these of your family!
