Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

5 Apr

K Bug had her first dentist appointment this week and it went great! No cavities!

She also had her first day of soccer too. She definitely wasn’t too into but I hear it’s normal and she will warm up to it.

Regardless, her good pal Kenley is on the team so all is well πŸ™‚

DIY Network’s Man Caves was on the scene at work this past week. Pretty cool to see the behind the scenes of this show!

Family walk/bike ride/stroll

Picking up his buddy Crosby along the way

The Beast had his 1 year check-up Friday…. 32.5 inches tall, 34.4 pounds, and all is well!

The Google Maps car followed me into my neighborhood… Not going to lie, I geeked out for a minute

Friday, Chris and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary. It was Good Friday so I had off work and Chris took a half day. After Hud’s doctor’s appointment, we dropped him off and headed out to Disney
I remember when we got married we said we were going to celebrate our 5 years in Europe. I never understood why people, especially in Orlando, would spend their anniversary at Disney World. I mean, it’s for families and such. Fast forward to our life now…. and yup, that’s us. Europe? Would love too but um yeah, not in the cards right now πŸ™‚ Someday! And hey….we only had half a day, are going on a couple of trips at the end of this month and we already pay for Disney passes soooo it worked πŸ™‚ Plus, we have something special planned for a few weeks from now πŸ™‚

First Stop, Hollywood Studios

We hit up the “big kid” rides that we normally don’t get to do.

After a few rides (and a few drinks), we headed over toΒ California Grill on top of the Contemporary Hotel

Selfies upon selfies πŸ™‚

The sunset was beautiful!

Dinner was good! It doesn’t look like a lot but there is a lot of food in there.

After dinner, we headed out to the terrace to watch the Magic Kingdom Fireworks ❀

After, we made an impromptu trip over to Magic Kingdom.

After a couple rides, we hit up Cheesecake Factory on the way home and picked up our wedding cake. Chris gets it for me every anniversary ❀

The next day, we headed back to the Island, picked up the kids and hit the beach! Hud has only been once and he was like 4 months old so I was excited to bring him back. He loved it!

Beach beauty

At first, K wasn’t sure about the water… Hud loved it πŸ™‚

This helped her get going! Poor Hud wanted to go so bad.

My dude

After a bit, she was fearless and wanted to ride some waves

Surfer girl!

He was a mess…. he didn’t mind one bit either.

My boys ❀

After the beach, we decorate Easter eggs… not my favorite thing to do

Easter morning and tearing into their baskets!

Happy Easter from Kyler!

My babes… they love each other ❀

It was a BUSY week and another one on the horizon…. we had a great anniversary and a great Easter…hope you had a great holiday too!!!

First Family Vacation as a Party of Four

27 Aug

This past week we took our first vacation as a family of four. Last September, I won a weekend trip to Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, Florida (about a hour and 20 minutes away). I debated using it as a “babymoon” before Hudson arrived but we heard it was great for families and Kyler would love it so we decided to wait until after he arrived. Chris’ 35th birthday was on Tuesday so I thought last weekend would be a perfect weekend to use it. It was a great weekend and we had a lot of fun! I will say, traveling with 2 small kids is definitely stressful, especially when one doesn’t sleep well and one wants to stay up late. Regardless, it was nice to hang out by the beach and pool and have some family time!

She was so excited to help with her own bags. And it was really helpful for us too!

We hit up the pool as soon as we got there

Family Selfie!

She had fun playing on the beach. Considering how close we live to the beach, it’s pretty bad we haven’t been in a year.

She wanted to catch a fishy so bad. A guy next to us was fishing and let her have a fish he caught. So nice of him!

Hudson’s first time at the beach!

Just me and my babes

Love this

The ocean was so calm!

Too cute

They had a big slide there that went pretty fast. Kyler went down once and bumped her head and that was the end of that.

This dude kept passing out everywhere πŸ™‚

Out cold

Just having fun in the lazy river!

Sweet Kyler

Me and my girl

They love each other ❀ Hudson also loves to pull her hair πŸ™‚

Just love them to pieces!

It made me excited to plan a vacation for next summer! By then, Hudson will be running around too and it will be even more fun!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

24 Aug

These two are becoming best buds

Sweet Hudson

We had a bowling outing this week at work. Bizarre bowling!

Last September I won Employee of the Year at work and the prize is a weekend away at Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, Florida. It is about a hour and half away from the house. I finally got around to using it (didn’t want to use it pregnant) and we picked this past weekend to help celebrate Chris’ 35th birthday on Tuesday.

Brought this bad boy with my. Delicious.

She was so excited to go on vacation

More photos on the vacation to come but here are a couple

Have a good week!
