Weekend Top Ten

Jelly Bean is still living her best life in and outdoors - especially when she gets a bed made out of an Amazon box and some love from her favorite girl.

I feel like I've said this several times, but Duplos are one of the single best "investment" toys we've ever bought.  We've accumulated a ton over the years and even though my kids are beyond the designated age they play with them ALL THE TIME and it's one of the few things they all play together.  They played for several hours Friday morning while I took care of a few office things.

Saturday morning Mason and I ran some errands together.  Quality time is his love language and we always have a great time together even doing simple little things.  

Saturday afternoon Griffin and I got to celebrate Miley turning 5.  It was such a fun, colorful party - just like the birthday girl!

After the party we came home and the kids wanted to do a "project". An hour or so later my kitchen table was a total disaster but they were creative, all got along and cleaned it up so I counted it as a win :) 

We got a couple of new puzzles this weekend and the kids spent a LOT of time playing with those as well.  I picked up  this United States one as well as  this Europe one and I loved that the pieces were the shape of the state or country. 

Sunday afternoons are when we "reset" for the week and my favorite part about the kids having clean rooms is their renewed interest in playing in them :)  Sunday afternoons are when they vacuum, dust, put away their creations from the week, etc. and while they put up some resistance about it the end result is always well worth the hassle.

(The kids really weren't into  these paint by sticker books on our road trips but have been ALL ABOUT THEM this week!)

Griffin is all about being "just like mommy" and it's the sweetest thing ever.  Nothing makes her happier than when we have matching bags or shoes :)  I want to bottle this up and hold onto it forever!

Sunday morning and sporting her party favor from the day before - FABULOUS!

We finished the weekend with ice cream and while I was trying to take a picture of Griffin with her cone - this happened :) 

Hoping y'all had a wonderful weekend!!!
