Friday 5: Getting this Summer Started



These last two weeks have been jam packed with lots of summer fun. Seems like we need a vacation from our vacation already. The weather has been beautiful and it has made our fun trips so enjoyable. 

We went to the Santa Barbara Zoo again but this time Dad was able to join us. We were able to discover even more stuff because I had an extra set of hands helping me with the boys. Visited Everett the snow leopard this trip. We ended our visit with a train ride around the park, after wards they let Everett sit in the drivers seat. He loved that.

Friday Five: Beach Day, Potty Training, Monster, Food Truck and Running


Friday Fives are probably going to be a two week occurrence with summer. Sometimes we are crazy busy and other days we just stay home. It is easier for me to do this on a two week schedule, but let me catch you up on some big news!

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the beach with friends. It was so much fun. Everett loved being in the water and playing with the other kids. Miles just liked the sand. It was clearly easier to get photos of Miles, Everett was moving too fast to get any photos.

Friday 5: Catching up with Cinco De Mayo and Mother's Day


It has been two weeks, I'm late with my posts but sometimes it is just important to be in the moment/life and step away from some of the smaller responsibilities. I'll do my best to catch up on two weeks.

Friday 5: Star Wars, Zoo and Park Fun


May the Force be with you this week because it was with us. We had an outdoor week where we spent lots of time outside exploring new places and things.

Friday 5: End of April


We end the month of April on a high note, we did so much in the last seven days of the month. Dad was gone for work, the weather was beautiful and it started to feel like summer.

Earth Day: The Wasted Swap Tote Bag (Stowe Bag Hack)

Recently I took part in a swap put on by Jenelle from Trashn2tees. I was pushed to think outside the box and think differently about construction, materials and design. 

Earth Day is looking at how we treat the environment. And what a better way than looking at the materials we use when constructing projects for sewing. This challenge was really looking at what we use and using materials that could be reused and recycled.

Another fun filled week has passed by. We accomplished so many things this week and got so much done. We started the week with Easter.
