As Labor Day Weekend begins, we look back on some fond summer memories at the beach with our friends. These boys, (2 sets of twins) had a blast jumping in the waves, building sand castles, slipping down water slides and one of their favorite activities, eating “chippies and hummie” with their best buds. While, they sure do look cute in their swim suits, the most important item they are wearing in this pic is SUNSCREEN. Super Duper Sunscreen SPF 30. Get some for your kids now, just because summer is over, doesn’t mean protecting your kids’ skin is too. Oh and Hey MOMS, check out Beautycounter’s skin care line for you too. It’s free of chemicals, chic and the best products for our skin, we’ve used yet.

Yiannos loves to play with play doh and pretend he is a butcher like his grandfather. He is a very good cook as well and knows all the vegetables, kinds of meat and spices we put in the food. Of course he has his own oven where he prepares food for his friends when they visit. He loves to dance and he is a big fan of Gangnam Style lately. He loves reading books and refuses to go to bed without having his dad read him a story. He also loves the theatre where he started going since the age of 1 and he is a big fan of muppet show. He has a little sister, Anastasia, who is 2 months old and when she cries he gives her all his toys. He likes wearing nice clothes and every time i dress him he asks me ‘am i handsome enough?’
-Yiannos’ Mom

This little guy has it all going on! A guru of fashion and a chef in the kitchen! We’re heading to Greece!

James is one lucky kid! Not only does he have an awesome golden retriever doggy named Lola, but he has a cool mom who knows how to dress him! Going against “traditional” boy style, she takes any opportunity to add some uniqueness and pizazz to his outfits. In particular, she loves the color purple and creating lots of layers. She makes sure to keep his clothes comfy though, as James is on the move and can’t be slowed down!

And we can’t wait to see how Mom dresses James’ new baby brother….

Catch him while you can! Tristan kicked off fall with a trip to the pumpkin patch to find the perfect one to become his jack-o-lantern. But now that Christmas is here, he has been busy decorating his tree and of course writing a letter to Santa. And as the best big brother to his sister, Riley, he wrote one on her behalf too. He can certainly expect some goodies in his stocking this year!
