May is always a super busy month for my family. We have two birthdays very close together, my hubs and my son. My son Myles was actually due on my husband’s birthday but he decided to make an appearance two days earlier. I guess he was set on having his own birthday party ha! Myles is ninja turtle crazy right now so of course I had to have a ninja turtle party! It was so much fun, I made a couple of games for the kids * and the kids at heart*, Pin the pepperoni and Mask Master. It was weird, the kids were all playing perfectly but the adults were having a hard time….hmm… so I tested the mask myself and you couldn’t see anything.. but the clever kids were tilting their heads back so they could see! Bunch of cheaters!
Here are a couple of pics from the party, there was a ton of pizza because that’s what ninja turtles eat 😉 and the ninja turtle cookies I made *cowabunga dude!!*
The hubs and I got Myles a bike for his birthday with no training wheels. We set off to the park to practise and he was so excited. He fell a few times and I just couldn’t look anymore! But after an hour he started balancing better and then he got it! I was so proud of him! My eyes welled up and I quickly wiped the tears away before he could see them. I’m so very proud of him, so very proud, he never gave up, even though he fell so many times. He said the best part was feeling the wind in his face 🙂
We’ve also done our fair share of kite flying, I am still the reigning champion, although my hubs would greatly disagree *what’s new there hahaha*
School will be coming to a close soon. My son is moving up to kindergarten and my daughter to preschool. We’ll be going on an adventure next month and they have no idea! I’m so excited and I can’t wait until we get back to share some awesome pictures with you! I hope you all had a wonderful May! and guess what? We’re that much closer to Christmas YAYYYYY! I’ve already started playing Christmas Carols 😀 😀
I spent most of the weekend in bed, dying from a cold and sinus infection *I know I’m so dramatic*, but I honestly thought that I had seen the light! Or maybe I had too much Dayquil. 😂
The hubs took care of the kids while I got some rest, which means that they had a bath outdoors in the sprinklers, ate pizza and corn dogs and ice cream and no vegetables, oh they just had the best weekend of their lives! Ha! The big bad mommy was away so the mice surely played!
I started feeling a little better on Saturday night, so I helped the Easter bunny fill some eggs and make baskets for the egg hunt. We hid the eggs including two golden eggs $$ 🐣 and then went to bed.
The munchkins were up at 7am and eager to see if the Easter bunny came, so I grabbed my camera and took the best pics I could with both eyes still closed 😂😷
After they found their baskets and eggs we had a huge waffle breakfast and then I started prepping for an afternoon BBQ *which I ruined because I couldn’t taste the salt in the food and then gave everyone hypertension LOL*, but they were good sports and ate the burgers that were drowning in salt 😂
Then we did and outdoor egg hunt and grandpa couldn’t keep his big mouth shut and kept telling the kids where the eggs were! So next year we’ll give him a basket since he wanted to play so bad 😂😂 There was also some wrestling, a bubble gun show down, hula hooping and candy tasting *I swear the kids wanted us to share their candy*. All in all everyone had a great time and we’re hoping to continue this tradition for years to come, but without the salty food! 😉
I hope you had an amazing Easter as well! 💜
Just another day playing outside with the kids, finding wish flowers *weed spreaders*, making lizard catchers, picking lemons and making lemonade. Life was good until that humongous grasshopper tried to hitch a ride in my hair! HA!
She found some huge wish flowers, and her wish was for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich 😂😂
Lizard catcher complete
Can you spot the huge hopper!? I think it shaved 9 years off of my life 😂😂😂😂
Here are some more photographs I took at the International Orchid Show in Santa Barbara. I took so many it was hard to choose just a few to share! I hope you like them!
Most of you know that I’m from the beautiful islands of Trinidad and Tobago and I’m no stranger to beautiful sunsets and beaches. But, I have to admit that Californian sunsets are nothing short of amazing!
Last weekend the hubs and I had a day out without the kids, we headed out along the 126 towards the beach. I love driving along the coast, it’s so beautiful and the air smells so clean.
We stopped at Andria’s seafood, ordered our favorite clam chowder bread bowl and fish and chips, stuffed or faces till we couldn’t move and then slowly walked across the street to watch the sun set at the beach.
I was told to make sure I got his beer in the picture *men!*
Here are my pics, I’m still in awe at how beautiful it was!
I hope you enjoy the pics and maybe catch your own Cali sunset brah!! 🏂🏄
