April is going down as the month of sunshine. We got so much enjoyment out of not only playing in the yard, but working on it as a family too. Sunshine + dirt does the body good. Pictures and more of the month below!
At Hunter’s swim lessons I get to watch him about 25% of the time, and the other 75% is keeping Zoe entertained. Snacks, tickles and this little notepad + bag of crayons is always a hit. She holds the crayon so well!
Just hanging out with the magnolia tree. That boy loves to climb up in it too. Sometimes he’ll be out in yard playing alone and I’ll walk outside to see what he’s doing to find him climbing in and out of the tree, happy as can be.
I wrote and shared a post on having a positive body image after having a baby (link here).
The great thing about living in a small town, and near downtown, is being able to walk into town. I needed a couple items from the hardware store, so instead of strapping 3 kids into car seats for the 2 minute drive, we walked the mile into town. Hunter walked the whole way (with a big hill back home!), Nova slept in the carrier the whole time, and Zoe was happily pushed in the stroller for most of it.
I’m bringing food prep back into my life to calm the worry and stress I sometimes feel at dinner time. Read my three steps to calm the worry and how food prep has helped me tremendously.
We checked out the water resource center for the first time ever, and had such a blast. There’s a lot to learn about water, energy and the environment + a super fun play area for kids 5 and under. Hunter’s favorite spot was biking to generate energy to light up light bulbs.
Mom win here. Hunter needed a potty break on a drive home and we were not anywhere near being back so we stopped at a coffee shop for that. They had stumptown coffee (my fav) AND soft serve ice cream. The kids were in heaven.
April, you brought so much sunshine and gave us tons of time outside. It’s one of my favorite things and I can’t wait for more!
