Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

27 Jul

I was on my own with the 2 kiddos this weekend while Chris was out of town. Lots of QT with the kids but we were all happy to see Chris!

Mommy/Kyler date on Friday started with donuts.

Followed by a movie with one of my own minons

Afterwards, we hit up Old Navy, lunch at Panera, a trip to Target and Publix. We were busy!

I went upstairs to put a load of laundry in and grab the vacuum and came down to this. Sweet girl was tired ❤

Story time with her dinosaurs 🙂

And her biggest dino of all… Hudson

On Saturday, I loaded up the kids and hit the mall before heading to Crayola Experience. To keep them occupied, they split some cinnamon sugar pretzel nuggets…. safe to say they liked them.

Crayola Experience was PACKED…. so packed that we weren’t there long. Too many people= too long of lines= too much craziness to handle alone

Sunday morning was spent playing and waiting for Chris to get back.

Apparently Hudson knows how to take his own selfies now.

My kids LOVE to dance…. Kyler has always loved to jam out but Hudson has recently gotten into it. We are definitely introducing them to some great music, haha!

Chris got home and everyone was sure glad to see him.

It was a long and tiring weekend and I am sure glad Chris is back 🙂

Animal Zoo: DIY Storage for Stuffed Animals!

21 Jul

My daughter LOVES her stuffed animals. She usually has 10+ of them in her bed and then of course plenty more in the playroom. They are all over the place and it drives me NUTS. A while back, I came across storage on Pinterest that would be cute and perfect for my problem. I put the project on the back burner and sort of forgot about it until I was picking up the playroom this weekend and decided I had enough with stuffed animals all over the place. Later that morning, we were at Lowes buying wood, rope and paint.

I think you could make this project as complex as you want but I wanted to keep it SUPER simple and cheap… this was after all going in her closet and at the end of the day….was just holding her stuffed animals. I have seen a lot of these 6 feet tall, however, I wanted to keep hers under 4 ft on purpose. If we get to the point that we have over 4 ft of stuffed animals…. I can tell you some of them are going to hit the road.

We picked up some pine 1x4s and after a few cuts and screws… we had our frame.

Again, I wanted to keep this project cheap and easy so I bought 2 cans of Valspar Spray Paint and Primer (in the color Nautical)

I bought the wooden letters and animals from the kid craft section at Michaels and already had acrylic paint at home.

We bought rope but I have seen where people use wooden dowels. Chris taped the rope where it needed to be cut (helps with fraying) and then burnt the ends. Since we bought thicker rope, he used his air nail gun to hold them in place.

After that, we loaded it up and it is already working perfectly!

It’s that simple people. She can easily get an animal out if she wants to and I don’t have to see these things laying all over the floor in the playroom. I call that a win win 🙂

Have questions? Feel free to ask! I highly recommend this project and it’s a great starter project too! Super simple and and easy way to easy into DIY furniture 🙂

21 Jul

I know I have been pretty bad lately at this whole blogging thing… and honestly… I wish I could say I hope it will change soon… but I can’t promise anything!

Chips and Guac at Rocco’s is delish in my book but add sangria and I am one happy girl

Bedtime stories with the stud

and of course my little princess

Friday consisted of a day hanging with a friend… and of course getting a pedicure and holding a phone flashlight up since the power went out.

Hudson needed a haircut… bad.

So we went and took him for his 1st haircut!

He did really well!

After haircuts, we hit up the fam favorite… Chick Fila

and a trip to Lowes… he is developing quite a little attitude 🙂

Hudson is looking so old these days

Kyler has started to dive and love to practice. Too funny.

Hudson and I just watched on.

I am one lucky momma

My hubbs is pretty great ❤

Blue cupcakes for this one

and this little Smurf too!

Nothing like hair day…. cut a nice chunk off my hair and it feels great!

Friday night dinner at 4rivers… Hudson’s 1st time and he loved it.

We headed back home and took the boat out.

We celebrated Poppa’s birthday with a ride down to lunch. Helping him drive!

Checking on my future weekend home 🙂 HGTV picked this home to remodel for the 2016 Dream Home.

Love watching the dolphins play. We also found a big jellyfish group… honestly the biggest jellyfish I have ever seen!

Love this cute thing 🙂

One minute she was driving, next minute she was passed out. Thankfully Poppa was there to take over 🙂

On the way home, we stopped and got our free Slurpee. Thanks 7-11!

Crayola Experience opened up in town and I really wanted to take the kids there. First stop, make your own crayon label.

Glow in the dark coloring with her brother ❤

The toddler area has this thing that is like a life sized Lite Brite. Once Hud found that, he wouldn’t leave.

Meanwhile, Kyler was off checking out all of the other areas.

Watching her painting dry 🙂

Just me and my Bug ❤

Toddler playground. Best friends ❤

Big kid playground… she is in there somewhere.

Her idea… such a ham.

How cool are these? Color yourself coloring sheets!

After some errands and an afternoon movie, we hit the streets for a bike ride.

Hud the Stud!!

Another fun filled weekend with my babes. We are having a blast with them!!!

7 Jul

This cute kid had his 15 month check-up at the doctors this week. He was 33.5″ tall and 35 pounds and 7 ounces.

Train table fun

We made a trip to Seaworld on Friday. First stop, the penguins. Breakfast time was no joke.

This guy ❤

and these two ❤

Flamingo boats with Dad

Thankfully we have a pool we can jump in after a HOT day at the park.

She wanted to make cookies for Santa so we made cookies and had a talk that Santa doesn’t come back until December.

For the 4th, we kept it low key and we did it on purpose. We have been so crazy busy that a day near the house was perfect. We went over to the Gilbos for some BBQ and pool fun.

Happy 4th from these 2!

Fireworks when the sun is still out is just boring.

The kids, however, liked the bang snaps.

Later that night, we headed back outside and lit some fireworks.

Watching Dad!

This girl is too funny.

The Beast!

While I was away at work looking over Summer League…

Chris was entertaining these 2. Looks successful to me!

Fun holiday weekend that was nice to just relax, not have a million things to do and spend time with the kiddos!
