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.

Miss Sassy pants before Grandma’s House

This girl will be READY for Fall and cooler weather. We already stocked her up with 3 new pairs of boots and we may add another one to the mix. Crazy? Maybe but she loves them and so do I!

Out for a walk with my minis. I mean how cute are they?!?!

I can’t get over how much they look alike!

Deep in thought

Queen Elsa everyone

She has asked to go back to “Mommy’s work” because that is where Disney on Ice was. Oh sweetie, thankfully I don’t work where it’s Disney on Ice 24/7.

We hit up with splash pad this weekend to get some relief from the hot sun!

Not a care in the world

Watching this monkey run around on the playground

And as a bonus, Kona Ice happened to be there for the soccer games. Don’t mind if I do!

I know it’s supposed to be almost Fall and all but it’s still hot as a B here so we are taking advantage of the pool as much as we can!

Sunday football at our house. Not sure why he looks so pissed, his team won! No joke, Hudson watched football like a hawk. I don’t think he is feeling 100% so he was content just relaxing on the couch.

Received my desktop drum set for my desk at work. Don’t ask ๐Ÿ™‚

The storms in Orlando are no joke. They happen about everyday in July. This little stormย actually ending up missing us for the most part.

However, sometimes after the storms have passed they leave your sky like this. Pictures can’t even do it justice.

Kyler and Grandma hit up the zoo again. I’m jealous!

Fishy kissies with my mini

She loves her doggies

We had a BOGO for Frozen Yogurt and decided to reward Kyler for potty training.

This little man hit up the doctor’s on Friday. Look how happy he is!

Buddy boy’s growth chart for height. Too funny.

Tummy time on the mat!

โค

My little workout buddy

I mean I think she could be the next model for Nike kids… what do you think?

Getting ready to hit the pool

Kyler the fish

She was so kind to let the dogs go swimming with her too

The girl loves the water

popsicles + pool = summer

We hit up Traders Joes for the first time. Letting my super independent, I don’t need help, toddlerย herย  own shopping cart while the place was a zoo was a bad idea.

Another weekend gone to fast and back to the grind tomorrow.

11 May

Oh how different this maternity leave is from my last one. Folding Kyler’s clothes while Hudson hangs out.

and of course, tackling this disaster courtesy of Kyler herself

Kyler is a stuffed animal hoarder. The more the better. Here are just a collection of “friends” she sleeps with.

She also started swimming lessons again this past week. She did them last Fall and was great when we finished, however, she was terrified of the pool again.

I love coffee. I also love coffee mugs. I picked up this Rapunzel mug at Disney last week. I figured why not use it while Kyler watched Tangled (for the 120058th time).

Hudson has been wearing 6 months clothes lately (can I please remind you that he is 6 WEEKS old!)

Wakey wakey!

She loves to love on her brother… he on the other hand isn’t so sure about it ๐Ÿ™‚

Hudson loves to sit up and look around. So alert!

Kyler had a friend come over on Friday. Hannah and Kyler are 3 days apart and her mom and I have been saying we need to get them together for about, oh 2 years ๐Ÿ™‚ Finally made it happen!

Caught her reading my Baby 411 book. Wonder if she picked up any good pointers?

We did LOTS of swimming this weekend.

Funny how in the beginning of the week she went from a scared girl to a little fish! Thank you Ms. Heidi!

All of her friends lined up and watched

So much fun!

Kenley stopped by to say hi but decided she wanted to swim too ๐Ÿ™‚

We had dinner over at the Gilbertson’s. Crosby and Hudson hung out ๐Ÿ™‚

Kiddo shot!

For Mother’s Day, I am usually with my momma too but she is taking a much deserved vacation right now so we just stayed home and played in the pool.

My sweet baby boy โค

and my crazy goofy little girl!

Yelling at me to “Get in the water, Mommy!”

Then she steals my glasses. Sneaky girl. (side note: look at that belly full of air!)

Hudson just hangs out and watches

These two are my whole world and make being a mommy the BEST thing that can happen to someone.

Happy Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mommies out there!!

ย Summer veggies, yummm ๐Ÿ™‚

Tummy time with the boy ๐Ÿ™‚

This girl loves her swing set

Just love her sweet face

Mr. Crabby Pants

Ammo’s favorite thing to do is hunting for lizards. Kyler decided to join in (there is one wayyyy up at the top)

A lot of times at school, the teachers will tie Kyler’s hair back. This is how I picked her up on Friday. HOT MESS

Life with 2 kids ๐Ÿ™‚ Kyler was having a melt down for no apparent reason then she decided to take her screaming over to Daddy and bumped Hudson which prompted him to start crying… can’t help but laugh sometimes! (Say hi to Mr.Fen who decided to photobomb the picture!)

My sweet snuggly boy

Hudson and Crosby!

I realize Hudson looks HUGE here (Crobsy is 5 months older). Although Hudson has made grown quite a bit this month, Crosby is still much bigger than Hudson ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekend trip to Lowes. This girl is too funny ๐Ÿ™‚

We finished picking up the supplies for the kitchen.

I am looking forward to enjoying our outdoor kitchen. I am also looking forward to getting our garage back in order!!

I love Florida Living โค

So does Kyler!

She loves the bubbles in the spa

Just love her!

I enjoyed my first beer post Hudson. Aloha indeed.

The girl loves her shades… in this case, mommy’s shades.

Sand play!

Loving life with my two kiddos! This week I turn 28 and I’m looking forward to celebrating with my sweet family โค

Our New Pool: Start to Finish!

18 Nov

When we were looking for our new house, we knew we wanted it to have a pool. When we searched the market, turned out many houses with our must haves did not have a pool… Bummer. We then looked for houses with a big enough backyard to be able to put in our own pool. Our house had just that. It’s not by any means a BIG backyard but it’s not teeny tiny like some in Orlando. We still have enough grass space for the doggies and Kyler to play.

Here is the pool building process in photos step by step:

Pool in the design stage:

Last day of having a grassy backyard:

Sod is cut & frame for the pool is done:

Time to dig a pool!

Steel is next!

Gunite! Actually looks like a pool.

Plumbing… yikes!

We have tile!!

Let’s add some pavers….

and the baby fence!

Almost done…. shooting the finish, Grey Harbor Mini Pebble.

Last step… add the water!

That’s our new pool!!

Next is Phase 2: Pergola and summer kitchen. Here is a sneak peak!

Stay tuned!!

2 Sep

The week started off celebrating Chris’s 34th birthday!!! Happy Birthday babe!!!

We kept it pretty laid back and ordered pizza (Chris’s fav) and went out for some frozen yogurt.

The week came and went and nothing really excited happened. We did have a very nice long weekend spent with lots of quality family time. We went out for breakfast at our favorite spot Keke’s.

We hit up the bookstore afterwards which Kyler thought was pretty cool. Especially when she found the little stage. She loves it up there!

Next stop was Lowes which Kyler ran straight to the tractors and climbed right up.

Chris ended up having to go to work for a hour or so but brought home lunch from Briantos, a local cheese steak place, and some hard to find Birch Beer! This reminds me of growing up and visiting my grandparent’s North Carolina home. They had some Birch trees out front and we used to snap the twigs and smell them. Love Birch Beer!

Kyler and I headed out to run some errands Sunday morning while Chris went in to work for a little bit. We stopped and got some Dunkin Donuts munchkins…. Kyler of course LOVED them.

The rest of the weekend was spent loungin’ by the pool.

Kyler’s hair is getting long!!! 2 things about this photo: 1) she is looking up somewhat so it’s not THAT long 2) it is longer than you would think because it’s only in the middle and in the back… we tend to brush that to the sides to minimize the mullet look ๐Ÿ™‚

She helped Dad dust today ๐Ÿ™‚ Such a good little helper.

She vacuumed of course too ๐Ÿ™‚

Multi-tasking…. reading a book while climbing some stairs. Goofy girl.

It was a fun, uneventful, relaxing weekend with my 2 favorite people. Work for me is about to kick it into high gear with the NBA season upon us so I try to soak up as much time with them as I can.

Miss Kyler starts swim lessons tomorrow (eek!!!) and I am so anxious/scared to see how it goes! ย Look for that update next week ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!! Have a great week!!!
