Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

18 Aug

Pool finish was installed on Monday!!!

Started filling it up with water on Tuesday…

Which means….. pool was ready to use on Wednesday!!!!

Kyler was the first to go in…

and the rest of the gang went in right after!

Kyler had a great time in the pool! Thankfully we have her signed up for swimming lessons because she is not afraid of the water!

We did have to stay home from school/work on Wednesday because K had an eye infection and pink eye. She sure was a happy kid even with all of that going on!

Friday night, I worked the KISS show at work and Chris spent the night hanging out with his sister and nephew. They are visiting for the weekend before making their way back to Singapore.

We headed up for a day at SeaWorld on Saturday. The kiddos had fun and got to see a lot of different animals! The penguins were definitely the highlight. We had yet to go on the new ride or see them because every time we have been, the line has been over 2 hours! We only waited about 20 minutes… not too bad!

Kyler LOVED the penguins. She could care less that is was 30 degrees in there (no joke, when you get off the ride, you are in the open air exhibit with the penguins and it was 30 degrees. Burrrr)

Thankfully, you can leave the freezing area and still see the penguins for a bit.

We also checked out the Shamu show and the dolphin show!

It was HOT out but we survived. Kyler passed out before we made it back to the car.

We spent the rest of the weekend in the pool! So nice to have it now with these mid 90’s that have been hanging around!

Kyler had a great time with her cousin Matt this weekend!

We had a fun filled weekend with family but it’s back to the real world tomorrow. Already. So. Soon.

Well the pool progress has seemed to really slow down which is really frustrating when we are THIS close to being done. They were able to finish the plumbing and install the baby fence this week.

They are supposed to put the pool finish on and fill her up with water this week! Fingers are crossed we stay on track!

My child loves Asian food (which is great because so does Mom). I made shrimp stir-fry and put it over brown rice for her (noodles for us) and she ate it right up. Actually she went straight for the shrimp which I find a little funny because I really thought the texture would throw her off. She loves it!

Daddy’s little helper…She helped Chris pull weeds aka pick and mulch and throw it to the side.

Never to early to make some cookies!

Play time with Dad while I was working a concert.

Kyler moved to a new classroom at school last week. She is now in the 1 1/2 year olds to 2 1/2 year olds. They said she has seemed to transition great. The biggest change for her is no more sippy cups. She drinks out of a big girl cup all by herself. They asked that we practice it at home so we have been trying to use them at our meals.

The biggest news of the week is that my best friend Jenny had her sweet little boy on Wednesday!!!

Welcome to the world Greyson Joseph Basso!!!

How cute is he?!?!? Seriously, can’t get enough of him ❤

So proud of my friends for making such a sweet boy! He weights 7.7 lbs and was 21 inches long. Perfect!


Have a great week!!!

28 Jul

The pool is one step closer to getting done!!! The pavers were installed! What a difference!!


Last weekend, we got a really good deal on a nice outdoor dining set from Home Depot. They came with these cute lumbar pillows, however, they weren’t in the color scheme I was doing out there so I made some covers for them. Piping, zippers and all 🙂


Kyler “getting” her daddy.


Kyler came to visit me at work the other day!!! She had fun walking around those big concourses of the arena 🙂

Friday night, we did a movie night over at our house with the Gilbertson’s. The girls started to get sleepy ❤


Cupig Shuffle Dance Party

Sleepy head with Ammo (she reminds me A LOT of my brother Craig here).


We had a really nice weekend spending time together and with good friends. I had lunch with my bestie Jen today (she is due this Wednesday, eek!) and it was nice to just to spend time with her! Maybe by the next update I will be posting pictures of her sweet little man 🙂 Fingers are crossed for her!

14 Jul

I am back!!! I know I took a week off but a) I warned you and b) I don’t care because my butt was on a beach!

Kyler loves a good game of peek-a-boo

Before the holiday, a few of our friends came over for dinner & wine.

We celebrated the 4th of July downtown Avalon Park. We walked around with The Gilbertson’s then hit Sweet Frog for some frozen yogurt.

The next morning, we were on our way to the airport to spend a week in the Turks and Caicos!!!

More to come on this trip later….

Kyler missed her toys.

When we left, our backyard looked like this…..

When we got home, it looked like this!

I will post a separate post on the trip later! Hope everyone had a great week!
