Friday Finds, Favorites and Fotos!!

Happy Friday, everyone!  I hope you had a great week!  We finished up swimming lessons this week, M went strawberry picking for the very first time and we took a little family field trip to the Science Center!  I’m looking forward to this coming week as we gear up for the 4th of July – one of my FAVORITE holidays!!!




Seriously, how cute is this!?  I’ve seen kid’s kitchen centers made from entertainment centers floating around on the internet, but this is the first time I’ve seen this idea.  The grill is made from a side table purchased at a thrift store!  What a great idea!


M is at that age where she wants to do everything “self!!!” aka by herself!  In sticking with her independent self, she more and more wants to make her own choices about things, including what she eats.  I love this idea of making a little “go to” box of snack items in the fridge!  That way I can fill it with semi-healthy things and yet she is still able to make the decision as to what she wants to eat for her snack.


M’s quotes/actions from the week:

-When driving the cars in front of us were coming to a stop so she starting yelling “watch out, watch out!” while pointing!  Later while at a stop light the car in front of us wasn’t going so she started saying “beep, beep”… I fear that we have a little backseat driver on our hands! 🙂

-After having been woken up from her nap she proceeded to lay back down and say “M tired”, refusing to get out of bed… and it starts…

-For a little while now she will randomly say “love you” while giving hugs/kisses, but lately when she gives a hug she rubs/pats our backs.  So cute!

-She is newly in love with airplanes and motorcycles (insert proud Papa) and is the first to announce/point out “aplane” and “cycle” as soon as she sees or hears one!

Cherry picking!  She had so much fun!         A little ice cream cone, anyone?!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  We’re looking forward to some family time, a grill-out/game night with our neighbors and going to the art festival.  Enjoy whatever it is that YOU have planned! 🙂
