Friday Five.

One. Lately I've been making sure my girls & I have time to just sit down and enjoy my time with my girls. Earlier this week we just sat down with Popsicles and watched 101 Dalmations. It was wonderful.  

Two.  My sweet 4 year old has been asking to help make dinner lately. She's made meatballs & tacos so far. It's so much fun having her in the kitchen & reminds me of all the time I spent (and still spend) in the kitchen with my mom. 

Three.  We got our family pictures taken last Saturday! I picked our final 15 and cannot wait to get them back all edited! 

Four. We spend lots of time on the floor playing with dolls. It's so much fun watching and listening to my girls play together. They are the best of friends. 

Five.  This was posted on Instagram this week and boy did it hit home that day.

Thanksgiving Point.

About a month ago we headed down to Thanksgiving Point to hit up the Museums. It was one of those trips where you mean to take pictures but only get a few, and those few maybe aren't the best, but it doesn't matter because, it was wonderful.

First we headed to the Museum of Natural Curiosity. If you haven't been here before, check out the pictures. I didn't get more than a few here and there was A TON to do. The best part was heading outside to the playground while we waited to meet some goats & rabbits. Both of my girls LOVED petting the rabbits. 

My husband and brother made sure they got in on the action at the playground. The zip line was awesome! My sister-in-law and I did it too. Abigail was the first one to jump on and give it a try. She's always so brave and willing to try new things. 

After lunch we headed to the Museum of Ancient Life. I was worried that my girls wouldn't care to see the dinosaurs. I was terrified when I was younger & they had them at the zoo. Madilynn absolutely LOVED the dinosaurs and couldn't help but squeal every time we moved into a new room! 

Our last stop was Farm Country. Madilynn was asleep by the time we walked over, but we had Abigail had a great time looking at all the animals and was even brave enough to feed a goat! We took a short little wagon ride around the farm and headed home. 

I think we had a pretty great time. I feel like if my girls were even just a year or so older they would have enjoyed it more. I can't wait to see what our trip there next year brings. Hopefully we head down for the Tulip Festival.

Microblog: Love

"People don't like love, they like that flittery flirty feeling. They don't love love- love is sacrificial, love is ferocious, it's not emotive. Our culture doesn't love love, it loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without paying anything for it." - Matt Chandler

3 Places You Probably Don't Vacuum.

Finally starting to get to my spring cleaning and wondered if there were some places that I vacuum that you don't. Maybe you already do these & I've been lost somewhere not knowing that this is what people do!

1. Bathroom Fans. - While pregnant with my oldest I spent lots of time dealing with morning sickness. One of these bittersweet moments spent in the bathroom, brought me to look up at the ceiling. That's when I noticed. The fan. Why in the heck hadn't I vacuumed it? It collects dust like crazy!

2. Floor Vents. - Open them up. Seriously, my children and their cousins are known to drop stuff (food) down into them. I never thought about vacuuming them out until I realized how much crap was actually falling down into them, and not necessarily on purpose. 

3. Under drawers.- The ones in your vanity. When I want a real deep clean I'll vacuum every single drawer and every single cabinet out before wiping them down. I realized that under the bottom drawer needed to be vacuumed out when something got stuck then fell down under it. It was a mess of dust and hair. 

Where do you vacuum that maybe others don't?

Microblog Monday.

"People who love to eat, are always the best people." Julia Child.

Me. Seriously. I love to eat. I could possibly be pretty awesome too.
We've been trying to do clean eating more often. It's been fun but I feel like it's getting boring, I'm running out of recipes. 

Do you have any to share? A Pinterest board I can follow?
