Spring 2016 Soccer Picture

2 Saturdays ago, we hit up Magic Kingdom. It was a fun but hot day!

Hudson went on his first roller coaster. He didn’t mind it but didn’t seem overly excited either.

Jungle cruisin’ with Dad

Cool girl

My mini โค

We opted for indoor rides/things to do after lunch.

So not sure if Kyler is just super gifted when it comes to lazer tag or what but she KICKED my butt and I didn’t help her one bit. Seriously, she did better than Chris and I combined.

Hud and I rode Winnie the Pooh while they did the roller coaster.

We ran into Kacie (and Kellie) and on our way out! Poor Kyler was so hot she asked to go home haha.

Within 5 minutes of leaving!

Just. love. this. face.

Earlier in the week, Hudson jumped off the couch and hit his eye on the table. He handled it like a champ!

Hudson’s masterpiece

We have been looking at tile for the downstairs…. they aren’t the best helpers.

This is Hudson’s face when you take him through the car wash

Memorial Day BBQ. Chowing down on watermelon.

When you tell her to go upstairs and change for bed… you find her coming out of the dryer?

We had big plans for the pool Memorial Day but the rain put an end to that. I feel ya girl.

They had strawberry shortcake for the first time. And they loved it. Duh.

Let’s jump on Dad!

They were pretty excited to find ducks in our yard when we got home. So they fed them some bread.

My fish

For some reason, it went from nice May weather to mid August weather over night. For the last week or so, it’s been mid to high 90s so we spent a lot of time in the pool.

Doggies need a bath too!

Today, we cleaned out the deck box and threw away the bad toys and found some old ones.

We spent the rest of the day lounging around, ordering Hudson’s new furniture and looking at fabrics for baby #3’s room. Back at it tomorrow.

Kyler’s 1st soccer season officially came to an end. She got her very 1st trophy!

The Little Monsters

We had a party at the splash pad with her teammates. Cupcakes were there, of course.

I love these 2 crazy kiddos

We hit up Disney on Saturday and it turned into being a tour of the princesses

Sweet Hudson went along with it but didn’t seem to mind!

We met Mickey too.

It was a PACKED day but we still managed to do a few things… Kyler participated in the dance parade

<3<3<3

We bought K an autograph book to start collecting her favorite signatures in.

Having so much fun on the teacups

Hudson is a climber. He gets into everything and on everything and I know it’s only the beginning

Just heading home from Kenley’s pool party

Fun weekend with the kiddos, as always. Even though they are both tough right now (Kyler going into a new “stage” and Hudson is MOBILE), I wouldn’t have it any other way ๐Ÿ™‚

Kyler’s 3rd Birthday Weekend!!!

29 Jan

A three year old birthday party was much different than a one year old or two year old party. At least it was for us. What I mean by that is that at age one, it’s mainly for the parents. The kid has no idea what is going on and what a birthday is. When it comes time for the second birthday, it’s still mainly for the parents, however, your kid may have some input in terms of what they like but outside of that, they still really don’t know what is going on. However, for the third birthday, that is when they definitely have some say so.

Kyler’s birthday was Monday, the 26th, however we started the party celebration on Friday. We brought in mini cupcakes for her class and they were able to sing her Happy Birthday at school.

Saturday was her birthday partyย withย all of her friends.ย Sheย had been telling me for about 5 months that she wanted a dinosaur and alligator . Um, what? I honestly thought it was just a moment in time thing but she kept at it and never dropped it. About 3 months ago (hey, I am an event planner-what can I say), I was thinking to myself “Okay, what are you going to do for a dinosaur and alligator party?” It dawned on me…. the Orlando Science Center! They have a great dinosaur area and baby alligators and guess what? They host birthday parties! This was perfect because Kyler now has a bunch of friends at school and I didn’t really want to entertain a bunch of people at my house. I mean do you remember how all out I went for her 2nd birthday?

Honestly, even though I was a bit sad that I didn’t get to be all creative and fun, it was AMAZING and pretty much stress free. I didn’t have to worry about a clean house, food, making sure everything was perfect, etc. We showed up and they handled everything!

First, she started out making a “lava” lamp and doing “volcano” explosion experiments.

Watching more science experiments!

Playing in one of the dino digs

We had a baby alligator come to the room and everyone got to pet him! His name was Taft ๐Ÿ™‚

Time for cake!

Playtime with friends

These 2 were full of it and running through the exhibit like crazy people

The big guy had fun too!

Sunday, we had a birthday party for family at my parents house! We kept it simple; pizza and cake.

My dad snuck Hudson some icing….I was not too happy, however, Hudson seemed to love it.

Kyler got this sweet ride for her birthday!

Taken her baby bro for a ride

Drivers Ed

She had a great time!

Think someone has enough jewelry?

Uncle Josh!

Playing soccer with cousin Cole!

For her actual birthday, Chris and I both took off workย and took her to a surprise breakfast with the princesses at the Grand Floridian.

He is such a flirt!

The other 4 princesses made their way around to our table

The Grand Floridan is so pretty! So is this little model ๐Ÿ™‚

She is 3!

Running off to catch the monorail

We spent the rest of the day at Magic Kindgom. The park wasn’t too busy and we were able to get on 10 different rides, catch the parade, meet Tinker Bell, and still sneak in a nap!

12:03pm. The exact time she was born โค

My little stud โค

Watch out! Crazy driver!

Waiting for the parade to start and had a great view of the castle

The parade had a bit of delay to naturally Kyler headed out to perform in front of everyone.

She will make friends with anyone these days ๐Ÿ™‚

Best parade yet. Since she was wearing her birthday pin, a lot of the performers came over to her and said happy birthday. She especially loved with Smead and Pluto came back and shook her hand ๐Ÿ™‚

Teacups

This one…. melts my heart!

My big 3 year old. Thankfully she was able to get on this because the ride broke down about 3 minutes later!

We had the BEST day with them. They were both so well behaved, she LOVED the princesses and got to ride all of her favorite rides, the weather was beautiful and things just fell into place. We had a long weekend celebrating but it was worth it…. anything for our Bug! Happy 3rd Birthday again sweet girl!!!!!!!!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons: Thanksgiving Edition

30 Nov

Wow, What a busy busy but really awesome week/weekend!

Kyler was testing out the cars at the store…. I think she found a winner. Doesn’t Hudson look so content ๐Ÿ™‚

We had a great Thanksgiving at my Aunt Bun’s house.

People say Kyler is my mini me but she reminds me so much of my mom. They even take pictures the same….

Happy Thanksgiving from our little turkey!

Kyler had a blast playing with her cousins

She loves Emma!

We hit the road bright and early Friday and headed out to Eustis to Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest. You can cut down your own Florida Christmas tree or they have Northern trees to buy as well. We already have a tree so we just went to have some fun and get in the Christmas spirit! It was really chilly out so that helped ๐Ÿ™‚

Ran into these guys…. happy they survived Thanksgiving!

Sweet Hudson

The girl rode her first horse and she loved it ๐Ÿ™‚

They have a small petting zoo which made this little girl happy.

The Christmas Tree Forest, Florida Style

Happy Holidays!

Me and my girl โค

My world.

The big guy and Chris ๐Ÿ™‚

She loved the horse so much she had to go back

This. Face.

That night, we busted out the decorations and got to work!

She did great hanging the ornaments on the tree this year!

It was a good branch

Putting the tree on the top โค

We woke up and headed out to Magic Kingdom on Saturday. First time on the Jungle Cruise.

Kyler was NOT into having her photo taken. Beautiful day, great shot in front of the castle and this is what I got.

It’s like they were in on it together

Watch out!

Kyler is finally tall enough to go on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster!

This video is hilarious. I promise, she loved it and asked to go on it again as soon as it finished.

Here we come!

Close up

Loves the horsies

Not having it

Kyler is starting a dance class at school this week. Cutest damn ballerina if I ever saw one!

Kyler helped me out with some Pinterest Christmas crafts today!

So there ya have it. Our super busy Thanksgiving weekend! I had a blast hanging out with my family. I am so thankful for each and every one of them โค I hope you had a great and safe Thanksgiving!

12 Oct

So this happened this past week. I had a work function at the skating rink and it brought me straight back to my childhood.

Ahhh how I LOVED the skating rink ๐Ÿ™‚

Just hanging out while I get ready for work. I mean his cuteness is just too much sometimes

And then there is this one…. she is my little model for sure. So. damn. pretty.

โค โค โค

This guy has been practicing his rockin’ skills

The moment anything gets within reach of him he is going for it!

His eyes are just unreal! (as are Kyler’s). I am definitely the odd man out.

We have been using the swingset a lot these days!

On Friday, we took Kyler and Hudson to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom.

Kyler was the Zarina, the Pirate Fairy. I figured this was the best time for her to meet Tinkerbell

We also saw Belle. She loves being a part of the story.

She loves the carousal and she loves her Poppa!

We have been to Magic Kingdom countless times and just noticed Rapunzel’s tower in the back

Meeting Captain Jack Sparrow. She was excited to meet another pirate

Dancing before the parade started

She even made it to the fireworks!

Early morning tennis season with Bug

Rocking the 2 seater cart at Target for the first time!

She just loves her baby brother!

My idea of Sunday Funday now!

The kids!

I love my weekends with my sweet family. I am about to get even busier with work so I try and spend as much free time with them as I can!

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 โค

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

Buildingย 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 โค

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!

ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Grad Nite at Magic Kingdom, April 2004

We pulled an all nighter at the Magic Kingdom for Grad Nite. It’s too bad they don’t do it for High School seniors anymore, what a fun night!!

I can’t even handle his cuteness

Such a happy boy ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

He also saw his pal Greyson. Greyson wanted to get to him so bad ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

She loves her baby brother. She is such a good helper too ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 toย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Happy Sunday!
