Friday Favorites

Friday we finally meet and what makes it even sweeter is that its a long weekend!  I have felt like it's been Friday since about Tuesday. Summer has officially started in my house, although nothings really changing since thankfully Jack is going to "camp" this summer. We thrive on a routine and I'm so glad we get the opportunity to stay in that routine this summer.

Here we go with my favorites from this week..

// On Tuesday Jacks class took a "field trip" to the rec center so that we could ride the train. It's the cutest little train that has been around since my husband was Jacks age. He had so much fun. It's open every Sunday afternoon through the fall and I foresee many trips in our future.

// There is a remote control air show going on at our tiny airport in town this week. On Wednesday after nap we headed over there to check it out. I've never seen an air show like this it was really cute and fun. Really hot, but fun! Graham enjoyed it so much he got himself a little snooze in.

// I have a black thumb when it comes to flowers. I love hydrangeas and when we were working on our outside landscaping all I wanted were lots of hydrangeas. For some reason they all died in our front bets but they are thriving in our back. We had several pots of them on our porch last summer and did nothing to them all winter. They sat on the sidewalk in our backyard un touched. I fully expected them to be deader than dead come this spring. Much to our surprise they have not only bloomed, but they are thriving! They are gorgeous and I love looking out to our porch and seeing them.

// Yesterday was Jacks last day of school. I cannot believe how much he has grown over these 9 months. We loved his teachers so much. I'm so thankful they loved my baby the way they did and luckily  {for us..maybe not them} we get to see them this summer at the pool!

// I picked up this bubble maker at Target the other day. It's so fun and produces a TON of bubbles without me having to spend forever waving that wand around. Graham loved watching them and Jack loved playing in them.

// I was in charge of Jack's end of year class party and had a local girl make some sugar cookies. I was going with a beach theme and she did not disappoint. They  turned out so cute, and I'm such a cookie snob and want my cookies to actually taste good. These were amazing!

// Lastly, this morning I looked over at the boys and saw this. It was so sweet. Jack turned to me and said "look, he's kissing me!"

// Ok one more..if you are in need of a cute pair of sandals this summer you've got to get these! They are so comfy and a great wedge style! Bonus, they are in the Nordstrom sale right now! 

So lots of favorite things this week! I hope that you all have an awesome long weekend and do something fun to celebrate Memorial Day! Remember that it's not just about the pools opening, cook outs and fun. It's truly a time to remember and honor all of those that have served to keep us safe! Have a great weekend, friends!

  1. I've seen that bubble machine on other social media recently and feel like we need it. My kids love bubbles but that means I'm blowing them constantly. I need to get a machine. Love javk's last day picture! And the hydrangeas are so beautiful!!

  2. We have that bubble machine, too! My little guy loves it!
    It looks like that was a really cute field trip. How fun!

  3. You are teasing me with those shoes. I need them and want them!!! My girls got a bubble machine from my parents for Easter. I need to bust that thing out. I think they would love it. I love the first and last day photos. He has gotten so big!
