You know how the saying goes.. Time flies when you’re having fun.
This summer has gone by so fast and yes we are happy to be back at school. V and K are learning new things, getting to know new teachers, friends and routine. Yet, we can’t help but reminisce about our summer of ’17 our favorite styles and moments shared before spending 6 hours a day apart.
Here are our top favoriteS:
-Our little Bash turned one years old and we celebrated Carnival style.
Face paint just feels better at a carnival
– our summer travels included short but sweet weekend getaways. We traveled to Lake George, Twinsburg Ohio, Florida and Chincoteague Beach Va. our most memorable place is always Twinsburg. V & K enjoy their friends from all across the world that come together just to share this fun filled, bonded weekend with twins and their families. We were so excited to share our new book release there as well.
Summer ’17 Included lots of blue in our everyday style in celebration of our favorite boy BASH!
What better way to start your day than to have your two seasoned 6 year old twin chefs prep you breakfast straight out of the recipe of Crackebarrel! http://shop.crackerbarrel.com
Yes! Cracker Barrel delivers a bundle box to your address with freeze packs, fresh products and easy to make instructions on the box. When you can’t make it to Cracker Barrel they can make it to you!
Living in NYC makes it hard for us to enjoy this delicious restaurant menu but we are super excited to now bring these ingredients to our own kitchen.
Another year of fun and we can’t believe that it’s already over! Twinsfest that is!
V & K truly enjoyed their time at twins fest this year; so much so they wished it would never end. We packed up our whole family including grandma for this adventure… through rain, across the mountains to Twinsburg, Ohio, where we rekindled with friends from as far as Australia to our home town of NY.
“TwinDollicious summer camp here we come” made it to our warehouse just in time to share the new story with all of our friends. They have been waiting for this sibling loved series and the next chapter of V & K’s adventures; and we were ecstatic to Share!
There are always amazing and interesting people attending the fest and this year Siamese twin brothers aged 65 attended for the first time. Though the brothers live pretty close by it was their first year attending.. They were happy to be there and happily took photos with other sets of multiples. Brothers Ronnie and Donnie are in the Guinness book of world record as of two years ago. They worked in the circus up until 1991 when schools would not allow them to attend. I’m pretty sure that all of the twins welcomed them to their happy place and made them feel at home so much so that they will make this an annual tradition for themselves as well.
Our little mascot enjoyed every bit of his first year at Twinsfest as well. He found a comfortable seat in the game day walk about while numerous chauffeurs towed him around and enjoyed their own test runs during the annual parade.
We have some little scientists over here in our TwinDollicious world!

The DIY was so easy and fun; it included 4 simple steps with minimal adult supervisikn for baking.. you need to watch, subscribe and try this for your next party or camping trip!
It has officially been a year since V & K asked to join gymnastics and hard work has paid off. These two dolls worked hard to learn all about what gymnastics has to offer up until the last day of meets. We are now at the point where a decision is needed to be made on whether they will join pre teams. We’d love to hear your thoughts?
They are 6 going on 7 and have been told numerous times that they have potential and the talent is clear. Though the girls do show differences in strength they truly enjoy tune with their friends and the cheering and support they receive and give to each other.
At their first meet they earned beautiful medals! They are so proud of hemselves and each other. As soon as we arrived home I thought it would be great to hang these beautiful things ; but where? We used Velcro Brand adhesives ( which we picked up at our local Michaels store).
The small sized Velcro square fit perfectly on the band of the medal. We simply found the perfect spot on the wall and hung them with pride… can’t wait for them to add more medals to their walls
Well, we survived a Presidents’ Day week with 80% staycationing (new word)! This February has flown by so fast that we couldn’t clearly plan a family vacation, so we decided to stay local to work a bit and have fun while doing so.
V & K enjoyed a movie premiere screening of Rock Dog; a must see movie about one of our favorite things MUSIC, and life of an artist. If it’s exposure to freedom of art, creation and a reason to think outside of the box we’re in!
If you haven’t been to the toy fair at NYC Javits Center yet you must check it out! There are so many ideas for learning, gifts and teaching lessons on encouraging entrepreneurship to children with one visit. It usually runs during the February season of NY Fashion. The girls enjoyed some goodies and decided to coordinate a full video on them. So much fun!

We saved our last great adventure of this staycation for our friends meet at Liberty Science center. We had the privilege of attending the new exhibit of Myth Busters. These girls love tech and science with a splash of fashion. As you can see here our Mom trends friends /event in style with some buddies. http://www.lsc.org
