The day started with Ezra waking up too early {for me}, got a little crazy and stressful in the middle, and ended with a family walk and a little American Idol. 
We visited the library to get books about bugs, made plant terrariums and dinosaur eggs, ate a whole bunch of fruit, took a few naps and admired Avett's adorable smile. 
Today was good.

Great Cloth Diaper Change 2013

Yesterday we participated in the Great Cloth Diaper Change for the third year in a row.  People from around the world change a diaper at the exact same time in an attempt to beat the current world record of most babies changed into a cloth diaper at once.  A local diaper group I am a member of makes the event a "Green Baby Expo" to allow local vendors an opportunity to gain some exposure and to celebrate all things natural for Earth Day. This year's event was the best yet! There were 65 babies changed, lots of vendors, and a raffle that raised over $600 for our group.  Our event even made the front page in the Savannah Morning NewsAnd the expo was right around the corner from Forsyth so we were also able to attend the Earth Day festival happening there. There were TONS of things we wanted to look at, but three children make those kinds of adventures difficult so were weren't able to see everything. Oh well, that's just our life currently.
At my table I talked to parents and parents-to-be about our cloth diapering 101 classes.  
Ezra happy to see Grandma. 
Getting ready. 
Brittany and Sophia!
Ezra was very excited to get his diaper changed ;)

We all had to hold up the diaper we were changing baby into.
After the change. 
My mom was one of the official witnesses!
I stayed and volunteered after so the kids took a trip to the park.

Avett and I met up with them eventually and we all needed a little resting/eating break before checking out the Earth Day festival.
First face painting experience for Ezra.  Cambria has never been interested in getting her face painted. 
He wanted a rainbow.
Petting an alligator. 
I was SO EXCITED when I actually won two of the raffle items!!! I know it may be lame, but I am in love love love with my cloth diapers and homemade soaps. 
Lots of soap from Marsh Mellow Soap, $15 to Undercover Mama, and two Charlie Banana diapers!
TWO jars of this stuff!
Only half of the bar soap. 
Our display at the fest. 

It was an exciting day and a fun way to celebrate Earth Day again this year.  I really enjoy being a part of our diaper group and love knowing so many other mamas who share my same enthusiasm about cloth diapers!

 Here's the weekend in 2011.

"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013"

Cambria: Cold after a dip in the water at Hilton Head Island.
Ezra: Kind of like his first time at the beach because I don't think he can remember the last time. Always a stick in the hand! 
Avett: His first time at the beach and wearing his swim hat!
