Wednesdays are long. Rush had burned through all of his screen time immediately after getting home from school, so when he complained of boredom later, I put him to work! These Almost Swig Sugar Cookies from @abountifulkitchen are to die for!
It’s like an enchanted green forest in the hills right now. We heard about a million frogs at the pond but couldn’t spot a single one! Hailey was in photo shoot mode and I was happy to oblige.
And this is why I am usually the one in charge of taking kids to the doctor…
Happy 10th birthday to Rushton!! It has been so incredibly fun and humbling to watch him grow over the last DECADE. He is smart, athletic, intuitive, helpful, easy-going, funny, and friendly. He knows more than I ever will about basketball, Star Wars, video games, and Harry Potter. You’ll often find him lost in a book, some of which he reads over and over again. He’s great at the piano and he can’t wait for summer so he can spend his days at the pool. We love him so much and are so lucky that he’s ours!
Little boys and mighty machines. We watched these guys pour cement and make a new sidewalk for over a half hour the other day. Logan was mesmerized!
I think I’ll keep our heart attack hearts up all year! It was the cutest treat as Jake and I got home from Mexico last week.
Just sticking his tongue out and blasting “The Final Countdown” as he completes his About Me poster for being Star of the Week.
@bainla maintained her reputation as The Fun Aunt this 4-day President’s Day weekend! She smoked us at Ticket to Ride, made cookies and cinnamon rolls, hiked through mud, washed a million dishes, read bedtime stories, and kept the peace while kids played endless Hexbugs, LEGOs, Beyblades, and Shopkins.
We heard there might be frogs in the pond, so we ventured out during a window of sunshine today. As we got wetter and muddier, I kept asking Laura, “This was a GOOD idea, RIGHT???” We only found two frogs, but there was so much laughing and squealing that we decided the answer was a resounding YES.
Aunt Laura came to visit for the long weekend, so we pulled out the raclette! Tri-tip + melted cheeses + grilled veggies + baguette + chimichurri = so much goodness.
