Hamra Boy #2 // Maternity Session

I was hesitant to get Maternity photos taken again but I really wanted some pictures of Sawyer with me pregnant to show his little brother one day.  While I don't love pictures of myself, I love the way they turned out, especially of Sawyer and John...the candids of him squeezing me and the pure joy on his face. Thank you J Designs for another amazing photo session.

Weekend in Pictures: Easter

Easter was yesterday and while the weather wasn't as "springy" as we would have hoped, it was still a fun day. We actually had a Easter-filled weekend. Easter-egg dying with Megan, Elliot, Trina, Kaitlin, Sawyer and me saturday morning, King's Way Helicopter Egg Drop saturday afternoon, and church, brunch, and a rain-filled Easter egg hunt with my family Sunday. Here are some photos, here is a link to all of our photos from the weekend: https://karitravels.shutterfly.com/3630

Kool-Aid dying, colors turn out great (except purple) but still a little tricky!

Kitchen Experiments: Trail Mix Smoothie

As I have mentioned before (see last kitchen experiments post here) I am a huge fan of B2 CafĂ©(Bambino’s) and stop in there at least once a week for a smoothie fix. John, Sawyer and I love the Trail Mix Active Smoothie, it is our favorite by far. I decided I would attempt creating the smoothie at home, to get our fix any day of the week. The one from B2 has mocha but I swapped and added a few healthy items. I think it is pretty darn close!

 INGREDIENTS (for 2 smoothie)

2 cups milk (we use local Ozark Mountain Creamery)
2 banana
½ cup PB2 powdered peanut butter
1 cup Granolove Peanut Butter Chocolate (Moka Java is also yummy)
2 tbsp. Chia Seed
3 tbsp. Flax Seed
Cinnamon (to taste)
1 tsp. honey


  1.  Just throw all items in a blender and mix. If it is too runny a cup of ice blended will help thicken.
  2. Enjoy!
