Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

22 May

Sleepy Hud


Silly girls!

So our dogs get into quite a lot… I left the house for 10 minutes and Caya pulled the powered sugar and potatoes out. Busted!

School pictures came in for the kiddos. Too cute.

Last soccer game of the season!

Go Little Monsters!

Pool time after soccer!!

Date night at Coopers Hawk then Captain America. Wine for Chris, flavored lemonade for me.

Having fun at the park for Addison’s birthday!

My little pirates!

This little tortoise was struggling to swim and couldn’t get out of the pond. Chris saved the day and he was happy to get out of there.

After the party, we hit the pool again.

Fun weekend and short week ahead!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

15 May

Celebrating my birthday with a pizookie at BJs Brewhouse. YUM.

Hudson had a kidney appointment so we picked up Chick FilA and ate it in the hospital parking lot. Happy boy.

Dr. Hudson!

His kidney appointment went okay. We were hoping it would be all cleared up but his right kidney is still slightly dilated. Good news, we don’t have to go back for a year and the doctor isn’t concerned at all. Hopefully he will out grow it by 3 years old!

Kyler’s soccer season is still going strong! She has been having a lot more fun this year and enjoys playing.

That said, 7:45am team photos for an 8:15am is a struggle…. grrrr.

For Mother’s Day, we went to lunch at the Port.

After lunch, we headed back to Orlando and did dinner with friends.

Note to self: celebrate Mother’s Day all weekend next year. Saturday is a day for me and Sunday will be spent with my mom. Not that I don’t mind sharing the day with my awesome mom, however, it’s not really relaxing rushing out of the house to drive an hour and deal with 2 crazy kiddos (make that 3 next year!)

Fast forward a whole week to this weekend (with busy work days and a day without a phone) to another busy weekend.

It started with Kyler’s soccer game, which she was NOT having this Saturday. She said she wanted to play yet she just stood on the field for the 1st time this season. Finally at the end of the game, she got into it and ran around…. she even scored her first goal!! Although it was for the other team 😉

After soccer, Chris went to the gym with the kids and I went to my friend’s baby shower and celebrate baby Grayson!

After the shower, my parents picked up my kiddos and Chris and I went to dinner!

We met our friends at Maggianos (one of my favorite restaurants) for a belated 30th birthday celebration.

Love this girl ❤

Some of my favorite people! Italian food, family style & GREAT friends= an awesome night out!

I mean look at that food!

Birthday desserts!

Happy Birthday to Mike as well!

Today, my parents were awesome and took the kids to the boat race out at Cocoa Beach. While they were doing that, we were enjoying running errands at Target and BJs kid free…. the things that make parents happy!

Such a fun surprise to hear their cousins were there too!

Boat race!

Hudson LOVES boats, helicopters, and planes and they were all out today!

Kyler caught some waves with Poppa and Emma

Buzy beach day! (this picture is hilarious because some how my mom turned her camera on black and white mode….)

The kids headed back and swam in the pool until Chris and I got there. Quick trip to Publix (spend some serious $$$ on groceries) and decided we are going to be healthy this week (see photos above).

Chris has started going to the gym and I don’t need help gaining weight right now haha!

Fun weekend and the kids are EXHAUSTED.

Birthday Trip to the Florida Keys

4 May

I turned 30 this year and wanted to take a trip somewhere warm. When Chris and I found out in February that we were expecting again, I knew it would be a family vacation and somewhere nearby would be perfect. I love the Keys and was excited to go back!

We stayed at Hawks Cay on Duck Key (right before Marathon). It was a perfect set-up for us and was a lot of fun. The resort was nice, especially for the Keys where places can be a little dated. This was no exception. While there were some really nice things about the room and place, some other areas needed work. We opted for a 3 bedroom villa in the Harbor side. We were bringing the boat and got a boat slip right outside our room. That was a huge bonus for us.

We arrived Thursday and didn’t get to do much other than a Publix trip while the kids played in the kiddie area. First tropical drink of vacation (not the same without alcohol).

Dinner with a view

After dinner, we stopped by to see the dolphins. They could stay there all day long.

Friday morning, we headed out on the boat later than we wanted.

We went to a reef, Coffin’s Patch, nearby. It was ok, nothing too fancy but fun because Kyler tried to snorkel for the 1st time! She didn’t like the taste of the salt water so she didn’t last too long.

We stopped at a nearby sandbar on the way back. I almost stepped on this guy!

So a boat is the baby whisper for Hudson. He passed every single boat ride and the seas were ROUGH Friday and Saturday…funny kid.

View on the way back

We stopped by a restaurant on the way back… Kyler loves boat drinks.

Hudson is a happy but crazy little guy

Play some music for this girl and she loves to bust a move!

In hindsight, we should have headed to the reef I really wanted to go to but we didn’t realize how rough it would be Friday or Saturday. Cruising down to the 7 mile bridge. After lunch, we attempted to head out to Sombrero Reef but the seas were just too rough so we had to turn around. Bummer.

Best buds ❤

Since we ended the boat ride early, we played in the lagoon and the pool for the rest of the day!

and then there were 3 Jenkinson kids!

We headed back to the restaurant on the water and had dinner. Kyler fed the fish so she was a happy girl.

We watched the sun set over the water and it was so pretty!

My mini ❤

This tiny thing jumped in our boat. Chris and Kyler tried to put it in the water but it was stuggling. They put it back in the bucket and we took it back to the resort with us. We assumed she was on the side of our boat and jumped in the second she had the chance. We put Minnie, the name Kyler gave her, back on the rocks where she most likely came from.

More pool time! This kid is a FISH and just wants to swim, swim, swim!

We headed down to Key West for my birthday for some shopping and dinner. We stopped by Sunset Pier on the way out.

It was a great trip (minus the colds Hudson, Kyler and now myself have) and loved spending time with my family! I love the Florida Keys and can’t wait to go back (just next time not pregnant!)

Picture day at school!

First flower of the season!

Fun times at Grandma’s house

Planting seeds with Dad. She got a butterfly garden kit and is excited for her plants to grow.

Love my Ammo boy

We spent my 30th birthday weekend in the Florida Keys! I turned 30 on Sunday and I am officially out of my twenties 😦

And we announced that we are expecting our third baby! I am 14 weeks (tomorrow) and due November 1st. And no, don’t know the sex yet and we are actually not going to find out!

More pictures of the Keys vacation to come!

I am currently unpacking and doing laundry while trying not to pass out because I caught the cold Hudson has 😦
