Mother's Day crown
Flowers from my motherboy

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day! I was spoiled with french toast, gifts, flowers and an impromptu mother's day song by a certain little boy. I feel so grateful to be the mother of such an amazing boy. He makes every day of my life so much brighter, funnier, and definitely more surprising. I'm so glad he's mine. And on the topic of motherhood, I seriously have the best mom. She is the most giving, selfless and fun mom and granny. The kids made her a crown from pipe cleaners and claimed her queen of the grannies and I couldn't argue with that. She is the best any kid could hope for. I don't normally get all mushy here, but yesterday had me feeling especially grateful and happy I couldn't not share some of those sentiments. I hope you had an equally great mother's day. Happy Monday!


happy easter!

Easter day

I hope you had a great Easter weekend! We sure did. We had more than our fair share of egg hunts and the kids were begging for more. Imagine that! We had a visit from the bunny and he left some pretty great stuff for little man. He's obsessed with his new camera and his nesting dolls. Which makes the bunny very, very happy. Easter day, though a lot of fun, was on and off a day of discipline for Elliott. Just because sugar has replaced every ounce of blood in your body, doesn't give you an excuse to misbehave. Or does it? For Elliott's outfit, I was determined to find some mint green pants to go with the grey shirt. You would be surprised how hard it is to find mint pants that will work for a little boy. I finally found the perfect ones here, and we love them. A lot. We ended the day in a sugar coma and with tears that Easter can't be every day. Now back to real-life!


picnic | And We Play
Sunset at the drive-inn | And We Play
Pizza | And We Play
Sunday walk | And We Play

Hello, Monday! Like I said last week, I am going to be slowing things down a bit as far as posts go this week since little man is on Spring break. But I had to share some snippets of the past few days around here. We ended up going to the drive-inn and we had such a great time sharing that with Elliott. He thought it was so cool we were watching a movie outside! But more on  that later. We visited with some friends, had an impromptu picnic and had some amazing food truck food. I am still dreaming about that pizza. And Sunday was pretty much the perfect way to end a busy weekend. We strolled, we slept, and we just spent some quality time together. It was fantastic. I may or may not be peeking in a time or two this week to post some last minute Easter fun. So you'll just have to check back and see! Hope your week is off to a great start!


Boy and his ball
jelly beans are pretty

Happy Monday! Things have been pretty great around here lately. Especially over the weekend! We had a lot of time to play which is always nice. We went to the park a few times, had a picnic, played some kick ball and watched Elliott maneuver his scooter around the playground sidewalks. He's getting pretty good on that thing! With the spring weather we have been taking advantage and spent as much time outside as possible. And then it snowed. What? Yes. It totally bummed me out, but thankfully it only lasted one night. Spring, don't let me down! This upcoming week we have some fun Easter crafts and printables we think you'll love. I can't wait to share them with you! We hope your weekend was pretty fantastic. 

P.S. If you're wondering why Elliott is making the face he is in the last picture, he had bit his tongue right as I snapped the picture. Poor guy.

P.P.S. If you don't already you can follow me on instagram where you will inevitably see pictures like these and no longer need to check in here on Mondays. But please still do. 


Birthday Girl
Lego love

The last few days have been non-stop for us. We went on a couple of fun outings with family, had a birthday party, a sleepover with the cousins and a lot of fun on a trampoline. Those things scare me to death when I'm watching the kids jump away on them. But they love them! Luckily this trampoline is an in-ground one, so it puts my nerves at ease. A little. With the cousins over here for a sleepover, they pretty much just played with legos. They took occasional breaks to sleep and eat, but other than that it was build, build, build. I can't complain! Made my job of keeping them entertained a lot easier. After a weekend like this one, I feel like I need another weekend. You know those? It was a lot of fun though! Hope your weekend was a blast as well! Happy Monday!
