Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

15 Nov

Catching you up on 2 weeks!

So Kyler’s glasses came in…..

She seems to like them. She didn’t react like I thought and honestly seems a bit indifferent about them. If they are there, great, if not then no biggie…. still not 100% it’s the correct prescription but time will tell!

This is what our wardrobe November in Florida looks like right now

We were able to sneak in a night at Food and Wine. One of my favorite things to do <3

One of my favorite things of the night…. ravioli with zucchini and a delicious cocktail

Of course we usually partake in the flights

The big guy!

My favorite beer of the night was the Funky Buddha Vanilla Espresso Porter

So good I went back for more!

Dinner shenanigans while I work

On Thursday, we headed up to Nashville for a work conference for Chris

We stayed at the Gaylord Opryland hotel. The parlor of our room…. not too shabby!

While the guys were in the sessions, the kiddos, my mom and I walked over to the mall next door. Grand Ole Opry was along the way!

One afternoon, Chris and I headed to a few breweries in downtown

And that night, headed to the Wildhorse Saloon with the rest of the conference

Afterwards, I met with some of my favorite people that now live in Nashville

Love and miss this girl!

One of Chris’ best friends happens to live in town too. His daughter and Kyler were fast friends!

The boys! (and Sienna :) )

Christmas decorations were going up around the hotel. We were about a week too early to see it in action!

There we are…. all the way at the bottom!

It was a quick trip and we weren’t able to get out of the hotel as much but it was still fun to go with the family and see good friends! Love this time of year!

Another Opening Night in the books!

Hudson’s first go at pumpkin painting!

Kyler of course was working on her masterpiece

Chris tried to carve 2 pumpkins. Honestly, I don’t think the Jenkinsons are cut out to decorate pumpkins….

We headed to Seaworld on Halloween to visit their Halloween Spooktacular. It was fun but it was HOT.

Before Trick or Treating, we picked out some glasses for Kyler. Yep, she needs glasses :( We took her to the eye doctor because she squints when she watches TV. Jury is still out a bit on what her exact prescription is but I am anxious for her glasses to come in and see what she says about them.

Later that night, Batgirl and Superman were ready to hit the streets for some Trick or Treating



Trick or Treat!

We celebrated Ethan’s birthday at the Science Center. She loves the turtles!

It was a fun, jam packed weekend but loved having Halloween fall on a Saturday! Now onto Thanksgiving and Christmas!!

Fall trip up to the Northeast

26 Oct

We love our trips up to the Northeast in October. We weren’t able to go last year so we were really looking forward to it this year. A few things have changed since last time though. My in-laws moved to Pennsylvania, my best friend moved to New York and my sister-in-law moved back to Connecticut. I only had 6 days to make the trip so we weren’t able to drive my Florida like we had hoped.

I worked a game on a Tuesday, got home at 12:30am, was asleep by 1am only to wake up at 4:30am to start getting ready for our 7am flight. Brutal.

I was sick when I woke up so that caused us to be late at the airport which meant we missed our flight. Lucky for us, they had the same flight leaving a hour later which worked out even better.

We arrived in DC around 10:15am, rented a mini-van and headed towards the White House.

After a quick trip, Kyler was bored and wanted to go to the zoo.

We spent a few hours at the National Zoo before heading out to Pennsylvania.

Our 3 hour drive to the farm ended up being more like 5 hours with DC and Baltimore traffic.

The next day, we spent the morning on the farm.

Hudson, the little Fall model

The kids loved playing in the corn

Love them!

Later that morning, we went into State College, had lunch, and walked around campus. Kyler LOVED looking for pretty leaves and came across a nice pile of leaves to jump in.

The tree we were under was beautiful. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It was so yellow it made the ground glow yellow below it.

We our course had to take a picture with the Nittany Lion

After a trip to the creamery and the local Target, we headed back to the Farm and played with the football before dinner. So nice to be in nice, soft grass and cold weather!

My guys


Love this little cheese ball

This one too <3

The next day, Friday, we played around the farm again (because it’s so much fun).

Heading back up the driveway to the Farm

In the afternoon, we headed to Hershey.

Kyler made her own candy bar!

Afterwards, we went to Hershey Park in the Dark

It was a cold but fun night!

Kyler ended the night by busting her lip on the sidewalk. Ouch!

Saturday morning we got an early start to head to New York City and met up with my best friend. The day didn’t exactly go as planned but that’s okay, it was still fun. It was, however, FREEZING!

After spending the night in Long Island, we went to the pumpkin patch and wineries with Jenn and her family.

It was so so so cold out that we found some space inside!

Wine for us and snacks for the kids

It was so cold out that we had snow flurries. WHAT?!

We headed down the road to another winery. This was had a bigger inside and live music.

I miss the girl so much!!!!

We took the ferry boat from Long Island to Connecticut and it was great! We ran outside to check out the sunset and watch us push off.

The ferry was great. We had a table, tv, and a deli/snack bar. The kids had dinner and relaxed. Poor Hudson started coming down with a cold and Kyler was worn out.

We spent the last 2 days with my sister-in-law. She lives near 2 orchards so we walked next door and it was BEAUTIFUL.

She loves her cousin Matt!

The orchards were so pretty

We picked some apples, apple cider donuts, and caramel and walked back.

Kyler playing in the leaves in the front yard

Too pretty

The best picture I could get of all 3 of them.

On our last day, we headed to Newport, Rhode Island for a quick stop

The Breakers

Love the cliff walk

We flew out of Providence, Rhode Island, had a nice and easy fight with the kids (so great when they get along), and pulled into our house at 7:30pm. Next day, I had another game (so tired)!

In 6 days, we travel through DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. It was a quick and busy 6 days but it was perfect. We may have been on the go the entire time but I was the most relaxed I have been in a long time. The kids had a blast, we got to spend time with family and the enjoy the Fall season. It was amazing.

My oh my…. the last time I posted was 20 days ago and I am so annoyed with myself! I am SOOO happy October is almost gone because this has been one of my busiest times in a LONG time. Let’s get caught up.

I passed out some Pure Magic shirts around the neighborhood

This little one got her flower girl dress in and is so excited

After work snuggles with the kiddos

Pool time with this fishy

Then, we took a week vacation up North (DC, PA, NY, CT, RI)

Separate post to come later!

We celebrated our dear friends Kenley and Crosby’s birthdays

And today, we spent the day at Disney World <3

I promise to stay on top of the blog from now on!!!!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

5 Oct

I came around the corner to find him standing at the sink trying to brush his teeth. I can’t believe how big he is getting!

He had his 18 month check-up this week too! He is 26.4 pounds and 35.5 inches tall. He did great of course :)

Trying on Halloween costumes… oh so cute!

Chris and I have both been so crazy at work so I really try and soak in as much family time possible. Just love these 2 more than anything!

Happy Fall!!!!

Hudson: 18 Months

29 Sep

Hud the Stud is 18 months ago. Sometimes I feel like it’s crazy he is that old but then other times I feel like he is older than he is. He is still my big sweetie….only difference now is that he is a toddler and has a bit of a temper. He is still a happy little guy but he has a mischievous side for sure. He loves to test us by putting his foot in the bog bowl, climbing the stairs, or runs the opposite way. He loves his big sister but then at times he pulls her hair and tries to slap her in the face. So sweet.

He is talking more and more but he can still be hard to understand at times. He loves to say no, call the doggies, ask for applesauce and a bunch of other words that are pretty darn cute. He LOVES his songs and sings a long to a lot of them. Kid loves to dance too. He loves bananas, applesauce, Mickey, Jake, Elmo, throw the football, swim, the dogs, Kyler, dinosaurs, and blocks. He hates getting his diaper changed, clothes changed, veggies, dinner in general, and riding in his car seat. He is in swim lessons now and I can’t wait until he can swim on his own. He loves it so we desperately needed to get him in lessons! He is doing pretty good with it so far!

He had his 18 month check-up this week and was 26.4 pounds and 35.5 inches tall. We finally got rid of the paci and he has done pretty well without it. I can’t believe we waited so long because we said we wouldn’t let our 2nd kid have it past 1. Oops.

Hudson is all boy. He loves to climb, throw, pull, destroy and destruct. He gets into EVERYTHING and you have to watch him like a hawk. It’s so fun seeing the differences between him and Kyler. While they are a lot alike in some regards, they definitely have their differences. He loves Chris! Always looking for dada :)

Happy 18 months to our sweet Hud! He is so much fun and is at such a fun age!

27 Sep

2 weeks to catch up on!

Soccer is still in full swing!

After soccer, the kiddos were ready to go to Grandma and Poppa’s house

Bye Mom!

No kids meant date night for Chris and I

Unfortunately, I had a little case of the stomach bug or food poisoning so that ruined date night :( Just my luck.

We went and picked up our little Patriots and got home in time for the game

Selfies with Kyler

Hudson started swim lessons and is doing pretty good!

Kicking off my 6th season with the Magic! Heading to MagicU with my friend Ashley!

Kyler’s new thing is apparently taking selfies with my phone

Playtime with Crosby watching their favorite pal Mickey

Chris had class today so it was me and the kiddos. We hit up the park before our Publix run to get some energy out

Kyler Bug

Our Publix was renovated so we now have fresh soups and these amazing little chicken sandwiches. This will solve those times when I want Chick Fila and it’s a) closed because it’s Sunday or b) too lazy to drive that far.

We practiced swimming with Hud today and he had a blast!
