So I’m finally getting around to sharing our family pics we took before we left Cali . I’ve wanted to take family pictures at the beach for years and we could never make it work. We had a date planned and one of the kids got super sick. So we drove all the way back home. We finally got them done just a week before we officially moved out of the state. My dear friend Corissa took these amazing photos and I will forever be grateful to have these amazing keepsakes!
How is it that summer is almost over?! It always seems to fly by, but with our move and allll our craziness we have going on, I feel like this year flew by even faster! As much as I hate to see it end, I am a lover of structure and routine, and I’m ready to get us back on somewhat of a schedule again! But I will miss the little people being around all day!!
When it comes to back to school shopping, the kids all time favorite thing to pick out is by far their backpacks + shoes! Our one stop shop for shoes for the whole fam is always Rack Room Shoes! We worked with them last year and their stuff is amazing, so we were thrilled to see they carry backpacks now too!
I don’t know about you guys, but for us ever since we hit the last day of school things have been non-stop!! Whether it’s family vacations, kids sports games + practices, or play dates with friends, summer is BUSY with five little people!
I’ve been getting asked a lot lately how we fit in all of the fun (and sometimes not so fun) things in our schedule with 5 little people, without losing our minds or patience. So today I’m sharing my Top 3 On the Go Summer Survival Tips that will help you get through the craziness and still keep a smile on everyone’s face!
Summer is in fullll swing and its kind of taking me for a ride! Ha! If you know me, you know I love a good routine and structure. So this big move + the kids being out of school has kind of thrown me through a loop! As crazy as it can be, I absolutely love these few months I get to spend with all my little people out of school, and after being so busy this last month we are ready to live it up!!
As a mom of five little people you can image the loads of laundry I end up washing!! Not to mention packing for trips can be a bit overwhelming with everyones clothes + shoes and trying to pack “light” for a family of seven is crazy. So I take every chance I can get to match them all and the biggest reason why…
Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions like “How do you stay focused with all the little people?” or “What do you do to feel more ready for the day?”. I’m definitely not a pro at all when it comes to this mom gig. But I wanted to share a few simple tips I’ve been trying daily to feel more focused in life! I hope they help you!!
We love to get out and do lunch + shop with friends during the week with the three littlest while the bigger people are in school – because staying inside all day is not an option!! I know you moms get me when I say that! I’ve had a bunch of you ask how we manage all the littles when we are out, so I thought I’d share three of my favorite go-to’s to help make the outing more go more smoothly! (click read more
A friend of ours told us about The Flower Fields down in Carlsbad, and it sounded like the perfect way to get out of the house and enjoy this beautiful spring weather with the kids! You guys! They are so beautiful, and there is so much to see and do! We went with our friends and had a blast! They have a fun playground for the kids, a cute area where they can mine and sift through the sand to find special gems, a gorgeous flower maze and . . .
Lately, Houston doesn’t want any help eating whatsoever!! If you’ve seen my IG story, you know exactly what I’m talking about and how messy he is + our current bib situation, haha! I have loved these pouches for on the go and …
Last weekend was Easter weekend and we spent it in Newport at the Marriott Villas with all our friends + had the best time! We swam, ate lunch at the pool, had an Easter egg hunt with all our friends, BBQ’d and had smores. We stayed the night with a few friends and stayed up late just talking and hanging out. (so refreshing) The kids always love all the fish at the hotel, especially Houston this time — he screamed + pointed at them the whole time! It was so fun and a much needed mini vacation as we try and get the house ready to be put up for sale this week.
