Camp Olivia

Kingston’s friend Olivia had her 7th birthday party out at the camp ground in Moss Park on the evening of February 3rd. It’s a bit of a drive out there so we thought Harbor might take a nap in the car since he had to miss it in order for us to leave on time. But first Kingston fell asleep, then Zekie, and finally Harbor. All three out for the count.

Kingston woke up as we drove into the park, but the other two we had to wake up when we got there. We stopped at the bathrooms first, which were by the playground, and then Zekie spent the next 30 minutes whining about how he wanted to go to the park. While he whined the rest of us greeted Olivia and her family and checked out how they had set up the campsite. Olivia and her sister and cousin were going to be staying the night after everyone else went home.

Once most of the guests arrived it was time for a scavenger hunt, complete with magnify glasses to really inspect what they found. At first Kingston and Zekie didn’t want to play, but after Harbor started off, they changed their minds. Jeremy took off with Harbor and Zekie and Kingston and I started looking. Kingston didn’t want to look for any of the easy items, mostly right under our feet, he wanted to look for a flower first (which there were none of). Eventually we met back up with Jeremy and the other boys and they took off while Harbor and I went exploring on our own.  He was so fun, holding the magnifying glass up to trees and leaves and logs on the ground, checking everything out, fearlessly walking deeper into the woods and through (not around) low lying tree branches. Hahaha. He kept turning around to me and saying “Come on Mommy. Come on Mommy” so I would keep following him. He was fascinated by bark and pulled a few pieces off before he found a nice big piece on the ground that he wanted to keep. Into the bag it went.

Before the boys finished collecting everything on the list it was time to eat. There were hotdogs, oranges, candy dipped pretzels, and a make your own trail mix section. After eating the kids took off for the playground for a little bit.

Then it was time for cake and presents before it got dark.

It got dark pretty fast during presents and then I started to feel a little stressed keeping track of everyone. They had smores supplies, so now there were a bunch of kids running around a fire with sharp sticks and it was dark so I couldn’t see well and Kingston was whining cause he wanted smores, but when we toasted the marshmallows he didn’t like it and wanted something different, and I was done at that point.

So we gathered everyone up and we said our goodbyes and headed home. Everyone got undressed in the laundry room once we got home and clothes went straight in the wash since we all smelled like campfire and I didn’t want that smell sticking around till I got to laundry.

Even with a few whiny moments it was still a fun party and the boys enjoyed being outside exploring with friends.

Nothing like Xmas lights and Ice Cream

Jeremy spend a good part of Thanksgiving weekend pulling out our Christmas decorations and started hanging our lights and pulling out our new Inflatables which the boys couldn’t get enough of. The boys helped out with checking lights and opening boxes until they needed a snack. Today’s request: Ice-cream.

Happy Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving started off a little rocky, with our waffle maker literally falling apart in pieces as Jeremy made breakfast. Followed by Kingston knocking our coffee table upside down on Harbor and poor Harbs limped around the rest of the day.

BUT, the rest of the day was great. My family came over for awhile and we chilled inside because of drizzling rain and ate an early dinner of turkey sandwiches and mac & cheese. Then after everyone left, we snuggled on the couch and watched Boss Baby on Netflix. A very relaxed day, full of thankfulness for these three handsome blessings!

Firehouse Tour

You can never tour too many fire stations when your kids are little. At least that’s our current theory. 😛 January 16th, my mom’s group did a tour of the Longwood fire station which was one we hadn’t been to before. We saw where they eat and how they have three fridges and food cabinets so each shift has their own food space they can lock up so other shifts don’t steal their food, haha. We saw their bathrooms and bedrooms, patio, workout room, and laundry room. But of course the best part to the kids was seeing them get dressed in gear and checking out the fire truck and ambulance.

After getting firehats and stickers and bracelets, a group of us headed to Chick-fil-a for lunch and for the kids to play. And boy did they play hard! Kingston and Zekie were sweaty from all the running and climbing and sliding. They had the best time playing with their friends while us Moms somewhat got to chat, yea!
