Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

3 Aug

Love my little crabby pants

My desk on Thursday. Was it my birthday? No. But this is what happens when your birthday falls on your maternity leave. 3 months later.

Sun showers ❀

We took the princess to Disney this weekend for keeping her undies dry all week. Also, Hollywood Studios is having the Frozen summer for a short time so we didn’t want to miss that. Kyler is waiting for the Frozen parade to start.

Me and my bug

“Snow” in July…. in Florida πŸ™‚

Kyler seemed annoyed with the fake snow.

It was a million degrees out (okay maybe 95…I imagine with the head index it was pushing 100+) so we took cover as soon as the parade was finished. We jumped in line for Kyler to build a snowman (sounds silly for those of you up north, but hey, this was new for her and it was a good excuse to stay in the cold air). Honestly, this was the best slushie I have ever had.

BuildingΒ her very own snowman

Frozen!

We hit up Magic Kingdom in the afternoon and Kyler and Chris went on Dumbo. This is one of her favorites!

She met Daisy!

Hugs for Minnie!

Another reason we went to Disney was for our dinner reservation at Be Our Guest, the restaurant in Beast’s castle. It was super cute and Kyler thought it was so cool to have dinner in the castle.

She even met Beast!

Since Belle wasn’t at dinner, we had to go find her (all Kyler talked about all week).

She got to play the salt shaker part of the story.

After a long and HOT day at Disney, we had a nice and relaxing Sunday at home. Hudson likes his new toy.

He also took a car ride in his new cart seat!

Looks like someone is becoming ticklish! Just love his sweet laugh

Such a quick 3 day weekend! Back to the grind tomorrow.

It was Hudson’s first day of school on Monday! Don’t they both look thrilled to be there? He had a great first week of school!

Love this pretty little face!

Playtime with Hudson!

She loves her baby brother ❀

Chris put this on Kyler this past week. His sister apparently wore it and they put it on Matt (our nephew as well). Such a goof!

I had Friday off work which meant Thursday happy hour!

and a little game of this.

Snuggles with this cutie

It was a rainy afternoon Friday so I took the opportunity to get some crafting time in for a birthday party I am helping out with.

On our way home from school… and this is what she does with her car seat

Mr. Happy was happy to be home

Saturday we hit up Magic Kingdom for the day.

We finally scored fast passes to meet Anna and Elsa, the Frozen princesses. Usually, Kyler gets up to the front and won’t talk to the characters but not this time. She wasn’t shy at all!

She met Ariel too

We saw 4 different momma ducks with their babies. I want them all!

Β On Dumbo!

On the roller coaster. She loves it!

Winnie the Pooh. Picture came up bad due to the lighting but still fun!

We had lunch at Fresh to Order today. It was super good!

We hung out at the Gilbertson’s today. Kyler told me she was going to the beach.

USA! What a game!

This is what happens when you have a big sister, you get to use her pink things. Sorry buddy!

No, this is not the same photo… that was Kyler at his age πŸ™‚

We had such a fun weekend! Back to the real world tomorrow.

We have had quite the busy week here. Chris’s family came into town on Sunday night and left this morning.

As you recall, we hit up Magic Kingdom last Sunday. After we left the park, we headed to the airport and picked up Nana and Peepaw (Chris’s parents). The view from their hotel room. Disney Fireworks!

The next day we hit up Downtown Disney. Chris’s sister and our nephew (Matt, he is 4.5 years old) are visiting from Singapore and just got in from there at 11pm the night before so it was a nice easy day.

As you will see below, they were best buds for the week.

Kyler got a lot of swimming in this week

The next day, we hit up Animal Kingdom.

The safari. It may not be the real deal but it was still fun!

We then hopped over to Epcot in the late afternoon to stroll around. Found these little cuties walking through America.

We got dinner in Germany at the Oktoberfest restaurant. The kids loved dancing to the band.

We stayed for the fireworks and were out of the park Β just before 10pm. 12 hour day at Disney and 13+ miles later made for 2 VERY tired little kiddos.

Running errands before the kids bapstim, ALONE.Β Β All of the parents out there know how amazing it truly is. Pure bliss.

Kyler and Hudson were baptized this week. More on this later.

Baller status

We made it to Dunkin Donuts for National Donut Day.

Hudson got to hang with his buddy Crosby this week.

Everybody swarm Hudson!

Enjoying in the Orlando Science Center

Just jammin’ out on the way home from dinner….. She’s so fancy

Hudson looks terrified

Goofballs

Today was a lazy day full of errands and play time. Ammo and Kyler snuggling ❀

He is sure big enough for it but I don’t think he is strong enough yet. Will visit this in a few weeks πŸ™‚

Sums up our day ❀

Welp, today was my last day of maternity leave 😦 I am so so so sad that I have to leave my sweet boy tomorrow and head back to the real world. At least I am going back to a place full of great people and good times. He will be with my mom this week so that makes it a lot easier as well. Off to get my bags ready for… WORK! Haven’t said that in a while! Catch ya on the flip side!

I can’t even handle his cuteness

Such a happy boy πŸ™‚

Hudson had some fun with his buddies this week! We had lunch with Jackson. They are about 2 weeks apart! He is such a cutie πŸ™‚

He also saw his pal Greyson. Greyson wanted to get to him so bad πŸ™‚ A few more months buddy!

We stopped by to see our cousins too. Kyler having some fun with the boys, Cole and Reid.

Hudson is his happiest after a good night’s sleep. Aren’t we all?

Those cheeks!

Soaking up all the cuddle time I can with him. This is my last week of maternity leave [insert tears here]

Mr. Hudson

Trying to take a selfie but Kyler was too engrossed in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Hudson, well he doesn’t know what is going on πŸ™‚

She loves her baby brother. She is such a good helper too πŸ™‚

We headed down to the Aunt’s house this week for my baby cousin’s high school graduation party (ugh, starting to feel old). This was the spread, delicious!

My cousin Charlie, Dad, and Hudson

We hit up Magic Kingdom for a little bit before we had to pick up P’Pa and Nana from the airport. Hudson was ready to go in his 6-9 month Mickey Shirt (ridiculous, remember is his 2 months old). Thanks again to Aunt Jenn Jenn for getting it for him πŸ™‚

Since thunderstorms and rain were in the forecast, we decided to leave the stroller in the car and brave it on foot. Chris wore Hudson and Kyler held my hand. I have to say, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and after it poured rain a couple of times, I was happy we left the stroller in the car.

Thanks to Fast Passes and the rain, Kyler was able to ride 8 rides within 4 hours. Hudson went on 6 himself πŸ™‚

Loves her Dumbo

She went on her first roller coaster!

She looked pretty scared when we were on it but when we pulled back into the station she said “That was a really really fast ride.” I said were you scared or did you love it and she said “I LOVED it!”

It’s a Small World. Kyler told me she didn’t like this one. She was too bored. Go figure.

Ariel’s Daddy

Really loving that we got the annual passes. It’s nice to go to the park for a few hours and ride a few rides.

As I said earlier, this is my last week of maternity leave. Chris’s family is in town this week so we will be on the go spending time with them. Here is to a busy week with family!

4 May

I started off the week with this. It’s so nice to just walk out to the backyard and enjoy the pool. This is Florida living.

Hudson hung out in shade instead πŸ™‚

Little dude and I ran some errands.. not very exciting but it’s nice to get out of the house

I picked up this book for Hudson. Pretty excited about it!

Thursday was my birthday. The big 2-8. I celebrated by heading to dinner with my sweet family.

Kyler didn’t want toΒ take a picture…

We tried out the new restaurant near us and we LOVED it!

Can’t wait to head here when I can actually enjoy a few of these πŸ™‚

My parents surprised me with a new grill! So excited to use this.

The hubs surprised me with a couples massage. Yes, please!

Hudson was having a hard time getting settled last night in the rock n play so I decided to test him out in the his crib… he did great!

Today, we hit up Magic Kingdom for some fun.

This is how Hudson strolled for the day.

Can someone push me around with a fan and sun shade?

Hudson’s first time at Disney!!

This is how Kyler strolled around for part of the day

The girl loves the carousel

Waiting for the parade to start!

Dancing to the music

Hi Pluto

So Kyler doesn’t like to meet characters BUT she thinks she does. So what does that get you? Her getting really excited to meet them and then when you get up there, a scared and shy little girl. Some classic Kyler dirty looks for ya!

Meeting Cinderella

Meeting Rapunzel. She actually talked to her and asked her to let down her hair. But… no smile.

She didn’t seem to mind meeting Donald or Goofy

Meeting Mickey… she was so excited to meet him until it was our turn in which case, she clinged to Chris and started crying.

They had to ask Mickey to leave and this is the shot we got.

She finally let Chris get near Mickey

As we were walking out the door, she said “Bye Mickey!” and then told us after we left she wanted to give him a hug. Yeah buddy, don’t think that is true πŸ™‚

After being snuggled up all day, he was a happy boy to stretch that long body out

Happy Sunday!

27 Oct

We have had quite the week in the Jenkinson household!!!

On Wednesday, we found out that Baby Jenkinson numero dos is a little boy!!!!! We are both thrilled (although I am still completely shocked and cannot believe it) and are very excited to experience being parents to a little man.

Kyler painted a pumpkin blue to celebrate!

Then she took some photos to announce to the world πŸ™‚

I really am completely shocked. I really thought we were going to have another girl. Chris has been saying boy all along and he was right again! He also said girl all along with Kyler so maybe he is onto something.

For those of you keeping track, I am 17w2d today. Somehow I am close to the halfway point and I honestly feel like I JUST found out I was pregnant. This makes me excited/terrified since I know the 2nd half will be even faster.

On Saturday, we decided to tackle Disney World for the first time with Kyler. The weather was PERFECT and although the park was crowded, we never waited over 20 minutes for a ride!

We only did Magic Kingdom and were there a lot longer than I thought we would be. Kyler LOVED it (of course) and was such a good girl! She napped well, ate well, and had a blast.

They have SO many rides that she can go on and it’s safe to say that was her favorite part.

Teacups!

Having a blast!

Nap time!

Checking out the stage show

Waiting for the patiently for the parade to start

Cinderella’s Castle!

Kyler with her Grandparents and Great Grandparents!

Minnie Ears!

She did AWESOME and I can’t wait to take her back!!

After leaving the park, my phone notified me that I had walked 9.8 miles! The day before was a 14 hour work day complete with a game which my phone told me I walked 9 miles. Needless to say, I was pretty damn tired today!

We took a little stroll up to the park today so Kyler could swing and slide…happy life!

She also painted a pumpkin thanks to Daddy’s help!

Also, a HUGE congrats to our good friends and neighbor’s The Gilbertson’s for welcoming their new SON (and brother for Kenley) into the world this morning!!! We are so excited for you all!

*****

Off to watch some TV and probably fall asleep πŸ™‚ Have a great week, Happy Halloween and see ya on the flip side!
