Girls first birthday party

It’s still hard to believe that the girls are already 1! They have grown so much, especially in the past few months, and are so much fun to be around.  The most amazing part is how different they are from one another.  Each with their own likes and dislikes, even what they laugh at and how they laugh at it is different.  They are my favorite people to be around, and I don’t think that will ever change.

We had a pretty big birthday party for them at the house, which was a lot of fun, but something I don’t think we need to do again until they are 16!  A few days before the party the weather report said it was going to hail (yea, in July!), so needless to say, I was a maniac.  But it all ended up working out.  A big thank you to everyone who came and has given us so much love and support this past year.  We definitely needed the extra hands and we love you all!  Here are some pictures from the big day…

Carousel

A little while back we spent a week visiting my parents in NJ, and man, the girls had fun.  We went to the aquarium, the beach, saw friends, and by far their favorite part was going to the carousel.  They loved it so much they both cried the second it stopped!  I’m a sucker and my Mom is an even bigger one, so of course, we went around again.

The last 3 pictures are my favorites!  The evolution of Ev deciding she loved it.  She was so unsure at first, and then after a minute she realized she kinda liked it, and by the end she was dancing on the seat and we had to hold her in place!

We changed our name!

Hi all!  It has been quite a while, which is something I plan on changing.  First change though is the name!  Since we are definitely no longer a family of 3, I thought it was time to update the name (yes, a year late) to reflect that.  The new domain is forEVR and always, which of course is for Everly, Vanessa, and Rondo!  Going to rondotakesbrooklyn.com will still work for a while, but starting in 2017, to keep updated go directly to

FOREVRANDALWAYS.com

I have a bunch of posts from the past 4 months or so I am going to get to in the coming weeks!  Until then here’s V in a box and E in a bag…crazy coconuts!
