Last night my four year old went on what he believes to be his first "date". We'll call her "R", her parents are friends of ours and she's four years older than our little man, GG. GG had been in "love" with her since he met her - I'm talking, "Mom do my hair before "R" gets here so I can look like a cool guy." Yeah, he has it bad! He was very excited that we were picking her up to go to a movie with us. Then the panic sat in... he wanted to give her a flower, but didn't have a flower to give her. Mommie to the rescue! I made a small bouquet for him. Nothing fancy, but it was good enough!
We went to see Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation which didn't disappoint. It was very cute and the kids enjoyed it.

We try to vacation at my in-law's cabin every year. There's only been one year since our son, GG, has been alive that we haven't made it. Every year we take a picture sitting on the fire place. This year GG decided that he didn't want to sit on daddy's lap. Here is a collage of the pictures. GG at 3 months, 1 year, 3 years and the bottom was this week at 4 years old.
The cabin is on a mountain close to Waynesville and Maggie Valley North Carolina. It's secluded enough to enjoy the quiet sounds of nature and see fireflies dancing all around in the dark.
We always make sure we visit Cherokee, Bryson City and the Nantahala Outdoor Center - even when we aren't white water rafting. GG had a cold which caused his asthma to flare up so after that first day we didn't do a whole bunch. We had to keep him inside as much as possible. He was in bed a full hour before dark, so we missed out on the fireworks, but we still had a great 4th. Besides, I'll choose fireflies over fireworks every time!
This time, on our way back home Thursday, we tried something new. I found a kids museum in Columbia so we stopped for GG to stretch his legs and play. He had so much fun!
Hello! I'm Diona. I am a wife and mother. You may notice I post a lot about motherhood, it's a huge part of who I am!
I love essential oils, Starbucks, hot tea, going to the zoo, being at the beach, traveling (any and everywhere), and having lengthy discussions - I'm a big time talker once you get me going.
I can see the beauty in a mud puddle. I love anything creative and artsy - crocheting, sewing, painting, drawing, graphic design and web design, you name it, I probably do it!
Aside from Housewives In The City I am also a full time photographer with a few other small jobs on the side.
