Weekend Recap - Zoo Day Edition

Happy Monday, Friends!
Friday started off extra fun with a Zoo Day Parade!  Mason's zoo field trip was canceled due to rain earlier in the week, but they kept the parade for Friday.  Kids came dressed as animals or zoo keepers and it was so cute!  We got ANOTHER use out of my eBay lion costume find (YES!) and Mason was in character from the moment he put it on :)

When we got there the parade hadn't started but look who G spotted?!?! :)

I mean!!!

High fives from dad on the way down the deck :)

Such a shame that her brothers don't like her at all :)

How cute is Mason's teacher???? We ADORE Mrs. Hamilton!

Friday night we got home, changed clothes and this picture pretty much sums up all of our moods :)

Saturday morning Mason came with us to dance class and he passed the time watching his sister and drawing a portrait of his newest beanie boo :)  That picture frame kills me!

It was recital costume day and G wasn't QUITE sure about hers :)  Fingers crossed she warms up to it before pictures next week and the recital the week after that.

After dance we headed to the garden center to pick up a couple of things and I can't help but stop and admire these...

... while these two were having their own moment with beanie boos.  Are my kids the only ones still soooooo into beanie boos?!?! They can't get enough!

A quick pitstop at home and then we were off to cheer on Mason at his baseball game...

Saturday afternoon my dad picked Mason up and they headed to the lake to meet up with my mom. Mason was SO EXCITED about all the fun to be had at the lake as well as the undivided attention :)  Mason's love language is one-on-one time so he was off the charts happy!  He kayaked, shot bb guns, fished, drove his remote control boat, made s'mores, went on a walk around the lake, made a teepee, etc. and had THE BEST TIME EVER ;)

Meanwhile, this kid and I enjoyed some SWEET time with Harry Potter and ice cream...

... while GG did this...

We missed Mason SO MUCH (it was his first night away from home!), but it's always fun to see hos the sibling dynamics change when the mix of kids change.  Luke is always an amazing big brother, but without Mason there he and G played together so well and Sunday morning we woke up to find them building a fort together.  These two are our early risers :)

Sunday evening we headed to one of our favorite spots to celebrate one of our favorite people's birthday!  

We love us some Josh Willis!

 Happy Monday, friends!!!  Hope y'all had a great weekend and that your week is off to a great start!

Tomorrow is Show and Tell Tuesday "Memory Lane" where we're going to be taking little trips down memory lane sharing our favorite things (toys, shows, memories, music, etc.) from childhood and/or years past.  I'd love for you to join in!

  6. My kids are 7 and 9 and they love beanie boos. My oldest son who is grade 4, still brings them to school to play with afterschool with his friends. While on vacation one of the friends bought the other ones the littlest beanie boos! It's still an obsession!!!

    Mason is an adorable lion and those pictures of G in the flowers is just too precious!

  7. What a fun weekend! My 9 year old is into Harry Potter and I am thinking I might get her the books for summer break. Also, what a fun weekend for Mason. Happy Monday!
