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.
Luella, or NuNu, as she calls herself, is a true New Yorker. At only 2 years old, her favorite song is Moon River (sung by Audrey Hepburn only- lol) which she knows by heart and sings all the time!
You can find her dancing to the Delacorte Clock in the Central Park Zoo, climbing the Alice in Wonderland Statue and watching the sailboats “race.” When it’s cold, the Natural History Museum or the Children’s Art Museum is her go to spot.
While recently spending some time in LA, her “things” are going to the Griffith Park Pony Rides and painting in the kids room at the LACMA.
She’s obsessed with kiwis and pineapple ice lollies and as of late, calls Mommy, “Babe”, thanks to her Father. We love a girl with style and sass!

Girl power! Mia and Alexa are super girls! At only 21 months, they love anything frilly and sparkly! While, Mom loves to dress them in coordinating outfits, she must be sure to include lots of purple…Their favorite color! We love their layers and coordinating headbands too!
