Five on Friday Vol. 3

We're in the thick of Summer, folks. August around Seattle is amazing and sunny. We spent a lot of this week at the beach and various parks. One of the days, the boys of course, ran in the lake fully clothed. But hey, that's what summer as a little kid is all about, right? I just love how much they enjoy the sand and water. So fun to watch them play together, too.

This is a continuation from the the above topic, but I'm not even kidding about the fun we've been having. Spending time at the beach, the park, the farm, playing in the pool, going on bike rides. Does it get any better?? Of course, spending my day wrangling two little kids is exhausting, but it's also extremely exhilarating! They know how to put a smile on my face, that's for sure.

I also signed Easton up for a Waddlers trial class at a little gym in the next town over. He had so much fun!! (the ball pit photo below is from the class). But it's kind of pricey and not super close to get to. But the good news is that there's a gym opening up next month, within walking distance of my house! So we're going to check that place out. I think it will be good for him to get used to some structure and social interaction. Plus? Seeing a One Year Old tumbling is to die for.

Chobani sent me a huge sample of their yogurt tubes to try!! And oh my gosh, they are so good! How have I never tried them before?! The strawberry is delicious. I haven't tried the Dragon Fruit yet, though, so I'm excited to taste it. So a huge thank you and shout out to Chobani for hooking me up and showing me what I've been missing!

So 4ish months ago, Bennett stopped napping regularly. He would zonk out in the car from time to time or take a quick cat nap in the afternoon on the couch. But this past week or two, he's been taking a full-on nap again. I'm talking 2 hours in the middle of the day. I don't know if it's a growth spurt, or maybe he's just worn out from the active summer we've been having. Either way, I'm not complaining :-)

MELISSA & DOUG are on Zulily!! I am in love with their products. So much fun stuff for kids. My boys have several of their puzzles and toys!

I absolutely LOVE Seattle in the summer! I visited in late July and I swear it was so beautiful. Much less humid than here! haha

I'm pretty happy that a new Little Gym will be opening in Maple Valley. I'm sure we'll frequent it once it's open. Right around when my son was born, the Covington one closed. What luck!
