Outdoor Campus and Celebrating Friends

"Q is for Quail" at the Outdoor Campus Wednesday!  Clara, David & Amelia love these classes so much.  The staff there does such a great job and it's free!  Can't beat that.

The kids decided to go camping.  Amelia snuggled right in the sleeping bag and closed her eyes. ;)

I started working from home this past week, so we created this tiny office for me in the corner of our bedroom.  Well, Davey loves his mama and for the past few weeks hasn't liked it if I'm out of his sight.  Like, I literally can't go into the next room to grab something without him wanting to come with or asking where I'm going.  It's pretty sweet but a bit of a handful.  So anyway, here he is on the literally 4 square feet of open space that I have in my "office" hanging out while I work.

Saturday we took the kids on an adventure hiking the trails behind the outdoor campus.  We had so much fun exploring.  Clara loved picking the wildflowers.

Of course Davey found a stick immediately to carry on the hike.

Clara wanted to check out every little trail off the main trail.

We got to see FOUR deer!

There were so many cool natural shelters from hallowed out trunks.

Of course we had to hit the park afterwards.

Saturday night we helped surprise Brandi and celebrated her 30th birthday!  I've been friends with these ladies since grade school.  Brandi, Jessica and I were all in the same kindergarten class. :)

We had a life group girls shower for Cherish and baby boy Fedders this evening. :)  There is not much I enjoy more than talking and laughing with these wonderful friends!

Parks, Parties & Pizza

We went on an "adventure" and checked out a new park after the chiropractor last Monday.  When I was putting Davey down for a nap later that day he sleepily said, "I want to go on another adventure." :)  

We did more playing at our apartment park on Tuesday.

My friend Brenda passed some clothes down to Davey and even though he LOVES super heroes he didn't want to wear these pajamas.  Well, Clara got ahold of them and wore them for 5 days straight whenever we were at home.  She asked for them the next day too but I had finally put them in the laundry.  I think she's forgotten about them for now. haha

I had a mild case of pink eye last week, so my sweet friend Melissa swooped in (as usual - she is too good to us!) and made sure we were set on vitamins and essential oils to keep the kiddos from getting it and help get me better.  One thing she suggested was rubbing the kids feet with a drop of oregano mixed with coconut oil before bed.  They looooved it!

more park time on Friday

auntie Jenna came to hang out with us for a few days :)

We celebrated Geneva's 30th birthday at Grille 26 Friday night.  I had the best time talking and laughing with these wonderful ladies.

Jenna and I had a sister date Saturday afternoon.  We went to Barnes & Noble and went to see the movie Black or White.  So fun!  Love you Jenna!

I scored two princess books for Clara out of the clearance bin at Barnes & Noble.

These two were having fun on the other couch while Clara and I were checking out her new books.

Clara made this during Sunday school this week. :)  I love hearing about what she did and learned during this time.  She's always so excited about it.

We made cauliflower crust pizza for the first time on Sunday!  We all loved it!  Check out the recipe we found HERE.  As we were starting to make the crust Clara said, "let's get doughing!" :)

Success!  And so so good!

Life Lately

Tuesday night at life group sweet Emily had the kids putting on a play!  How adorable and fun!

Thursday I went to go open Clara's curtains to let some light in and found her behind them playing with her snowflake window press ons and watching the rain. :)

Love this sweet girl!  I would love if our someday house had a window seat in her room!

Keira and adorable Parker spent the day with us on Thursday! :)  So wish they lived closer so we could do this all the time!

Friday morning Clara and David sat there and played with their farm house and animals for a solid two hours.  That is the best!

Loved our ladies night out at Grille 26 Friday!  Love my sweet, beautiful, life long friends!

Saturday we went to the CSA Fair at the coop my talented sister-in-law Gabby organized and put on!

These two are pretty much inseparable!  Busy boys!

checking out the different stands

After the fair we got groceries and this poor guy was sleep-eating his donut since we missed naps that day!

Riding their horsey today.  Clara's wearing Davey's Superman jammies a friend passed down to him. :)

Rain + sidewalk chalk = THIS :)  She was saying, "I'm pinkie pie!"  Whatever that means. ;)  Needless to say the kiddos had baths tonight!
