one // Cousin fun! Over Memorial Day weekend, we traveled to West Virginia to visit Mimi and Grandaddy and to spend some time with Will and Harper’s cousins who were in from Kentucky. Will and Harper’s cousins are seven and almost five. We also found out that my sister-in-law is having a baby in December! Yay! We are all so excited for them:)
two // Picnic season is here! I love picnic food and all the yummy salads, but I’m pretty much the only one in my family who does. My husband doesn’t eat salad and the kiddos aren’t too big on them either. However, I found one salad that hubby will eat. It’s this black bean and quinoa salad. My sister-in-law first made it for us last summer and paired it with grilled salmon. So delicious! three // Life on the farm…I picked up Harper and Will from Nana’s (our babysitter) last week and the kiddos were begging to take me to the barn to show me the kittens. I love how much they get to explore and be outside at Nana’s. The kiddos often go on walks to Maw and Grandaddy’s house (Nana’s parents), head to the barn to pet the horses and look at the sheep, and search around for the tiny kittens.
four // I had to work on Memorial Day:( Boo. It was a snow make up day for us, which was no fun. At least I talked my husband into picking up lunch at Chick-Fil-A and bringing the kiddos to work for lunch and playtime on the playground. It was quite fun and the kiddos were so excited to be at “Mommy’s school.”
five // Fun times outside! We’ve been enjoying temps in the 80s here in Virginia and we’re taking full advantage of playing outside and enjoying snacks outdoors. I can’t believe that school is almost out for summer! I need to start creating my summer fun list and figure out all the cool activities Will, Harper and I are going to do:)
