I love these colors.
They make me think of the ocean.
Making something out of them makes my heart happy.
I could stare at them all day.
I love being nestled up on the couch under my fave $6 thrift store afghan watching movies with the kids.
I seriously love everything about that blanket.
I love granny squares and the crazy bright funky rainbow of colors. I love that the predominate color is a spastic bright yellow.
I imagine a really cool woman with a fun personality made it and somehow I ended up blessed with it when no one else wanted it.
It was fate that it ended up with me.
We went to the coolest 5 year birthday party ever for a great friend over spring break.
It was so fun. The kids were pumped. The games were awesome. His mom was dressed as Wonder Woman and his dad had multiple costume changes. You could tell the birthday boy is so loved by all the hard work and thought that went into making it such a special celebration.
Such a truly authentic family. One I aspire to be like.
We cleaned out the sandbox and added new sand last weekend.
Brody stayed in there forever burying his legs and feet and laughing.
Nana and Papa gifted AJ with that sandbox when AJ turned one.
It's one of our favorite parts of summer every year.
Remember making these things as kids?
I do. I loved them.
I wasn't sure if the kids would get into them or not.
AJ LOVES making them. He'll spend two hours making intricate patterns and designs and searching through thousands of beads for the right color.
Abby lasts about ten minutes, starts 5 different projects, and finishes zero.
That's her star. She made one corner of it.
Love her fleeting interests and restless spirit.
She keeps me busy.
Last Saturday we worked in the yard, checked out some play sets for the back yard and made it to happy hour!
My cherry coke had 7 real cherries! It was the best day ever!
