Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

23 Jul

So it’s been a month since I have posted and it’s probably the longest I have gone without a weekend post. July has been crazy busy for me and when I have had the very little down time, I have spent it relaxing.

Big guy turned 8 months old… and tomorrow he will be 9 months.

Kyler has been loving gymnastics still. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to go but I am looking forward to this week!

Since it’s been ridiculously hot out, we have been in the pool a lot.

Ammo and Lincoln ❤

We had some friends over for the 4th. Merica!

Kids and sparklers… seems like a good idea

They did okay until Hud bumped into Kyler with a hot stick… then the fun was over.

Metallica came into town and it was my favorite concert to date!

Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat opened and I couldn’t have been happier

It was amazing and crazy loud. Couldn’t hear for 2 days!

40,000+ of my closest friends

Lincoln isn’t so little anymore ❤

So all of our kiddos look alike. This is the three of them at 8.5 months old. Lincoln top pictures, Hudson bottom left and Kyler bottom right.

We celebrated Poppa’s birthday

I went to Vegas for work conference. 48 hours total trip time + 7am flights + 3 hour time difference = BRUTAL

Sleeping at breakfast ❤

The kids got to meet STUFF up close and personal for the first time. They love STUFF!

Lincoln and his sweet friend Kate ❤

LiteBrights are still a big hit with the kids…. Kyler loves her!

I had another work conference but this time it was in Orlando at Disney. Work is so tough when you are playing around at Disney 🙂

We celebrated Alyssa’s birthday and Phil was in town!

Arena Ops circa 2010-2016

Hudson loves all things Star Wars so we headed to Hollywood Studios for some Star Wars fun.

Hudson LOVES Storm Troopers so he was set. He had to wear his shirt, shoes, hat, mask and bracelet. He was so excited to see them walking around.

Yeah… they are not fans of Kylo Ren. He still scares them too much.

We headed off to Jedi Training in the 150 degree Florida Sun.

Using the Force!

So intense

Meeting BB-8 ❤

Andddd more Storm Troopers. He had to show him his little trooper toy

After we got stuck in the rain, we headed to Animal Kingdom. Checking out Pandora.

Then went on a safari ride

These sweet 3 year boy gorillas were so fun to watch. They were wrestling and playing around and so funny ❤

Dad was HUGE

Amazing amazing animals

They adored their dad ❤

Hud’s tiger

We spent SO much time at Disney and we were so tired. Relaxing with the kiddos ❤


This past week I have also been able to spend some time with my best friend Jenny, although I wish it was under better circumstances. Jean, may you rest in peace and be pain free. You were an inspirational woman that I always looked up to. Such a fighter, amazing mom and Nana, and best friend to a lot of people. Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers. ❤


Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

28 Sep

You know you are a 90’s kid when you are SO excited they brought Surge back. A friend from work hooked me up with this and I am saving it for a day when I need that extra push 🙂

We had Magic U, our annual kickoff to the new season at the Orlando Science Center. Eating lunch with the dinosaurs, pretty cool!

Just some of my work peeps!

She loves her baby brother

He is getting so strong!

Still smiling after a face plant

This chunky monkey had his 6 month check-up. All is well 🙂 I could just squeeze and love on him all day!

Terrified, Hudson? You should be!

I have a feeling that sooner than later he will be bigger than her….

Kyler’s BEAUTIFUL version of Let It Go. She has a bright future in signing I think 🙂

Thanks to a friend, we scored some free Universal passes that expired soon. There isn’t too much at the parks for the kids to do (well really nothing for Hudson) but we seized the opportunity and enjoyed the day.

Kyler just watched her first episode of Scooby Doo the other day so she was excited to see him.

We really have to work on her picture smile haha. She has no clue who these guys are but she loves her dinosaurs

She loves Curious George!

Riding the roller coaster with Chris

We took the new Harry Potter Train over to Island of Adventure. Super cute ride!

Just chewing away on his sippy cup

Kyler rode 3 different roller coasters! After this one, she told me she didn’t want to try it again (it went a tad too fast).

We got through both parks in a little over 4 hours. I kind of wish it were just Chris and I because the parks were dead and we would have been able to ride a lot! Chris and I were just talking about how lucky our kids are to be able to go to these places whenever we want. I know there are a lot of families that save up money to be able to come to Disney and Universal and we are fortunate to be able to go for a few hours on a Sunday.

Afterwards, we hit up Publix and Hudson rode in the cart for the first time!

It felt like a quick and short weekend but at least I had some QT with the fam. Happy Sunday!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

29 Dec

I’m back from a little hiatus from blog land. Due to Christmas, I thought it was best just to skip last week so here we are.

Justin Timberlake was in the house on the 19th. I had to work and was quite busy that night but when I did get to stop and watch, it was a great show.

We spent some quality time with some of my besties ❤

and with adorable Greyson!

Kyler loves him!

We made Oreo Truffle Balls and Chocolate covered Peanut Butter Ritzs

Kyler and Daddy ❤

On Christmas Eve, we headed over to Grandma & Poppa’s house. Kyler got to open some presents early (those that were staying over there).

Merry Christmas!

Love this girl ❤

I got a new Keurig Espresso machine! I bought some syrups from Starbucks to make them taste just the same.

Skinny Vanilla Latte & Hot Apple Spice

Miss Diva in some of her new clothes and sunglasses.

Kyler got a train set for Christmas and so far, it’s a big hit!

Kyler bought Chris some Legos of his own so he can stop playing with hers. Needless to say, he was happy and put them together the next day.

Back to the Future Legos.

Kyler and her new baby. She is going to be a great big sister!

We had a Magic game this past Friday and Kyler came to visit. She had a BLAST! Only lasted to half-time though before she got really sleepy.

Happy girl.

Bad photo but I have a kid old enough to play on the big playground at the arena. So crazy!

My little bug!

Trying to get this girl to eat sometimes can be exhausting.

I should have given her a bunch of rocks for Christmas. She is beyond obsessed with them.

Now we are all caught up! Have a safe New Year’s Eve everyone!!!
