Memory Keeper: This Week In May

IMG_20150514_100051

Happy Spring All! And Happy 2nd year Blog Anniversary to this blog!!! We have been enjoying some cooler rainy weather here in Cali. Admittedly, its a little strange, but we are oh so thankful for the extra bits of rain during our long drought. Again, we have been sticking pretty close to home these days. The kids are all focused on year end testing and getting their grades up and Azure is practicing for his spring play of Peter Pan coming up next week. Here are a few family pictures and some more salad and smoothie inspiration for you

I found this fun magnetic sand at the .99 cent store (it was $1.99 for a two lb. bag) It’s been a fun hit with the little kids. Yes, its still very messy, but one cool thing is it doesn’t dry out like playdoh and you don’t need to add water like regular sand to make castles, etc.

L: We tried a pinterest project of making ‘Dinosaur eggs’ It didn’t turn out the best and was super crumbly, but we had fun making them together

R: Brecks chilling with his orange snack while waiting for Dad to pick us up from shopping

L: Brecks is continuing with his school journey. For some reason he only likes writing with capital manuscript letters. I guess all the youtube shows/songs he likes features capital letters

R: Got my craft on quite a bit this month with birthday gifts for loved ones

L: A pretty blossoming tree and a large monkey that couldn’t resist climbing it. He hopped out real quick once he saw my phone out 🙂 hehe

R: I have noticed I take a lot of pictures of the two little guys sleeping, I think the idea of them growing up too quick is hitting me. Thankfully, they aren’t too old for stories and snuggles

Well, that’s all folks. Have a wonderful week
