Friday Favorites

Hey Y'all, happy Fri-YAY!! This week went pretty fast! The weather was really nice and I felt like I had finally recovered from my Disney hangover!

My favorites from this week!

O N E | Graham turned 17 months old and just so happened his 5 month picture popped up in my FB memories. Goodness how quickly time has gone. The days definitely are long but the years are short, couldn't ring truer for me!

T W O | Wednesday night Patrick, Jack and I went to see the Harlem Globetrotters at the local college with my inlaws. It was really fun, but super hot in the gym. Jack had a good time!

T H R E E | I mentioned the weather being really nice. Wednesday's are our days where we don't have anything going on. We usually try and have a play date so this week we met our good friends Hudson, James and Charlotte at a park and played and had a picnic!

F O U R | I adore Jack's teachers, they are always doing fun things each week. This week was Pizza Pat week and they finished out the week making pizzas. They even gave the kids personalized aprons, seriously so cute!

F I V E | I finally pulled out my Easter decor this week. I wanted a cute banner for my mantle but couldn't find one I loved, so I tried to get crafty and make one of my own. Too bad all the tutorials I found required a sewing machine. I decided to use clothes pins instead and I think it turned out pretty cute! I also found these precious bunnies at Target and knew they would be so cute on my hearth. Especially since the boys can play with them and not mess them up. I decided to go with two of the boy bunnies since we have two boys, there was also a really cute pink little girl bunny!

S I X | If you missed my posts from earlier this week, I recapped days 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 at Disney! I plan to finish up next week!

I am going rug shopping tomorrow and so excited! Our rug in our den was totally ruined from Roscoe but we didn't want to replace it while he was still alive. I am so excited to find something new and fresh! Other than that, Jack is spending the night with his grandparents and cousin tomorrow night and I'm taking the boys to a birthday party Saturday. It should be a pretty low key weekend with some great weather on Saturday!

Have a great weekend, friends!

Disney World Days 3 & 4

If you missed my recap of days 1 and 2 check it out here! Monday morning we were up bright and early to head to Animal Kingdom. We had early breakfast reservations at Tusker House. This breakfast was so yummy and it was another character meet and greet!

After breakfast we were able to catch The Festival Of the Lion King show. It was so good! We weren't sure if we were going to do this or not but it happened to start right as we were leaving breakfast and so we walked right in. Our kids really loved it, the music and dancing were great. After this we had a FP for the Kilimanjaro Safari. This was such a great tour. You really got to see the animals up close. It was definitely bumpy but we all really enjoyed it.

Once we finished the safari we did a little souvenir shopping and then decided that we wanted to head to the Magic Kingdom. There weren't a ton of rides/shows that we wanted to see at AK. Jack fell asleep in the stroller as we waited for the bus to MK.

We rode some rides and decided to get some ice cream on our way out of the park. it happened to be during the afternoon parade so it was fun to be able to watch that and eat our ice cream.

By the time we got back to our resort my feet were killing me! My lower back felt like it was going to go out, I was a hot mess. We quickly took showers and got ready to head to dinner at Disney Springs. We had reservations at T-Rex Cafe. We hopped a cab instead of waiting for the bus and our driver dropped us off about a mile away from the restaurant. I was so glad that we decided to bring our strollers, Jack would have been having a melt down walking all that way. I have to admit, this was my least favorite meal of the week. I thought that they kids would really enjoy the restaurant but they were all so worn out from the day that they all just sat and watched their iPads. The atmosphere of the restaurant was cool but it was so super loud that we could hardly have a conversation. I also failed to take any pictures.

By the time we got home it was 9:30 and everyone was beyond tired. Jack was asleep before his head even hit the pillow!

Tuesday morning was another early rise! We were off to Epcot to have breakfast with the Princess' at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Originally we had lunch reservations but after seeing the menu we all decided we didn't want to do it so I cancelled. I happened to stumble upon breakfast reservations the day before and was so excited. This was easily our favorite breakfast. It was so fresh and delish! The princess' came to our table and the little girls were so excited, I have to say I think Jack was smitten with them too!

After breakfast we headed to ride Soarin, I can't recommend this ride enough! It was SO fun, we all wished we were able to have ridden it again. We then went to ride The Seas With Nemo and Friends. It was a cute ride and Jack enjoyed it. Once this was finished we headed back to Norway to ride Frozen. We had a bit of time so the little girls waited to meet Anna and Elsa and we took the boys and walked around. It was the flower and garden festival so the flowers were beautiful. It was nice to walk and see all the work that had gone into it.

We all rode Frozen Ever After. This was such a fun and cute ride. We all really loved it! After Frozen we walked around the different countries and decided to eat lunch in Italy. Jack fell asleep just before we got to Italy and slept through the entire lunch.

After we finished lunch we headed back to our resort and hung out at the pool for the afternoon. We decided that we would eat dinner at our resort and then head over to the MK and ride a few rides and stay for the fireworks show. Well but the time 9:00 rolled around we were all exhausted and decided to bag the fireworks and head back to our resort. We were able to catch the fireworks on the dock of the resort which ended up being just fine with me, especially since Jack decided he was afraid of them!

Another fun yet exhausting day! Wednesday was our last day and we spent it at Magic Kingdom! I will recap that and also all the things we liked/didnt like and tips/tricks in my final recap later this week!
