It Is a Truth Universally Acknowledged That Much of What Goes On Here Was Insisted On By the Mother


Poway CA, Community Park Fourth of July celebration


the band played ole American jazz


his expression speaks for itself. and it's not saying Happy Fourth


Mom. I can't believe you made me take a picture with that strange lady. Please don't ever do that again


Despite his vampiric name, he looks Team Jacob here

Mr. Curry is such a good Daddy


I love my husband to infinity

lol, moms are supposed to make their children do things they aren't stoked about - they'll look back with fond memories of the family time together, at least i do. :)

thanks for the comment on my post the other day - i need all the encouragement I can get some days!

random, but I watched back to the future 1,2, and 3 last weekend, and it cracks me up that it made me think of you. :)

Ms. Moon said...

Ah yes. The mean, mean mother. I can see it in your face.

clearness said...

You look so amazing! What beautiful photos (even of the disgruntled 16 year old)!

Brigindo said...

They may not enjoy it but the fact that they do it for you speaks volumes. Looks like a fun time.

Petit fleur said...

Great post! Love all the photos, and you look so beautiful and happy.

I remember feeling like Dakota looks when I was sixteen at family outings. I just wanted to hang with my friends.

Not only do I envy all the love in your family, but I also want your hair!

Marion said...

Love your title, so true! (Jane Austen fan, no?) It looks like you and your family had a fun, memorable day. Your family is beautiful as are you. Blessings!

anymommy said...

And yet, they will all remember it fondly. That's part of what makes mothering so much fun, no? Glad you had a good day. You look glowy and stunning, darling.

Drax said...

Yes, very adorable. You be blessed, you know.

Holly said...

um, hi, you look stinking GORGEOUS!

Zip n Tizzy said...

You look radiant.

Elizabeth said...

This kind of post of yours, Maggie, make me feel, especially, as if you really are my friend, living down the street.

you look so beautiful - and happy! again, your family is lovely and I am sure that when they're old enough they will preciously treasure all theses 'forced' memories :)

Love, Evolution, and Resilience said...

Ah Maggie! Soooooo beautiful... and you are looking particularly smokin' these days! Hot mom indeed. *wink* D (Sisterly affection).

Terresa said...

Love the honesty about the rampant picture taking that us mamas are oft insistent on. How else could generations look back and remember? (And someday, he may thank you...)

Hi Maggie! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. My daughter is called Aggie, short for Agatha.

Looking at these pictures and your captions, I'm in awe of what it must be like to be having a baby and a 16 year old. Aggie's our first and my husband and I joke about what she'll be like as a teenager. But we don't know, don't really have any idea. And I know each kid is different, but still - you have the whole spectrum at one time.

I want to ask something here but I'm just not sure what. I'm excited to keep reading.
