While daddy's away

 Tommy was in Australia last week. Me and the boys enjoyed movies every night :)
The twins would get so excited when we would pick the movies. Cooper would snuggle up with Ashton and Nixon would sit by Weston. 
We can't believe that there is only 1 more month of summer left. I will be really sad when my buddies go back to school! 
Here is to the last month of playtime!!

Some of my faves...

Oh Ashton and Riley.
 You guys are so cute and have such fun at shoots together.
You aren't shy around and seem to have tiny crushes on each other. 
Your chemistry comes out in your photos and long shoots fly by.

Riley and Ashton are very well behaved and always impress the photographers. 
That's probably why we get so many jobs.
It's always nice to get along with who we spend all of our time with. 
Riley's mom has become a friend and Ashton and I always love when we hear that Riley got the "girl part" for a shoot. 

Excited for Oceans Magazine shoot with you all tomorrow :)

Our little athletes

  Thursday marked the last day of soccer for this season. The boys have enjoyed playing with the British Football Academy and will start again in September.
They have both learned so much and have become great competitors.
I have enjoyed watching them progress and build up their soccer skills. I can't believe how much they have learned!
We are looking forward to more soccer in the fall :)

It's rare that we have a slow and relaxing morning, so today we took advantage of it. 
I tried to get the boys to sit together for some pictures, but all the twins want to do is run!
Luckily, these pictures capture our lives right now and show how active we all are :)

Sharielle's visit to Tokyo

This is the day Shar arrived. Of course she had prizes in her suitcase from Grandpa and Mimi!

Sharielle's boyfriend is on a mission right now in Cali. He is a soccer player so of course we had to check out some soccer stores!

Shar taught Weston how to cross his eyes :)

Goodbyes SUCK!!!

My sister Sharielle is leaving on a mission in 1 week. I am so thankful that we got to fly her out here to spend some time with us!
We had a busy, but very fun week!
The boys had modeling jobs almost everyday that she was here (6 jobs in 7 days and 2 auditions!). That was actually really fun because we got to see so many different parts of Tokyo. And Shar got to see what me and the boys do with their modeling! I am so glad she was there to visit and give me some extra company.
We also went to some shrine's and temple's, went shopping and out to eat. And of course our nights were spent making brownies, watching movies, doing photo shoots of our own and making videos (the nutmeg challenge and cinnamon challenge hahaha!!).
The boys had such a fun week with Aunt Sharielle:) They both asked her to live with us forever!
Can't wait to see her in 18 months!
