Great Papa Turns 90!

Our lives from birth are filled with those around us who influence us, love us, and help raise us. The people who inspire us can be any age and can hold a special place in our hearts. 

I feel grandparents and great grandparents have very significant roles in children’s lives. It is a love that can be indescribable at times. Children look to their grandparents for not only love, but for wisdom and confidence to be themselves. I was very blessed to of known my grandparents but, I lost them at a young age. I have very fond memories of them and cherish those memories very much. I am sad that my girls have never met my grandparents because they would of loved them but, they are blessed to have two sets of amazing grandparents and two amazing sets of great grandparents on my husband’s side. Their grandparents and great grandparents cherish them and the feeling is very mutual. I see their excitement when I mention any of their names and it warms my heart. Everyone teases I take so many pictures and I do this so that our family can look back and enjoy the moments we have spent together.

Fill up your Water Balloons with a Dollar Store Water Shooter

It is Summer and my family loves a good water balloon fight.

Happy Kids (and adults) in the summer = Water Balloons

It is such a fun way to stay cool and keeps everyone moving. We were having so much fun with our water balloons and we used up all of our Bunch O Balloons. (insert- Super Sad face here LOL)

I can not imagine filling water balloons the way we used to when we were kids. Standing in front of the kitchen sink and filling them one by one. It took so much time to fill them all up and I remember getting water EVERYWHERE as you pulled the end of the water balloon off the faucet. Bunch O Balloons is Absolutely Genius and saves so much time! As a parent I am so happy that this is the way we can fill water balloons for our kids in the summer time. Summer Parties have gotten so much easier because of this amazing toy/ product.

Chalk Drawing Photos

During the Summer we always try to find fun things to do with the kids that don’t cost a lot of money and create fun memories.

This activity was so much fun and we loved looking at the photos after we drew the chalk art and posed with the chalk creations. What will you draw?

I suggest doing it in the morning or later in the day when the pavement is not so hot.

We completed our own Summer Inspired Chalk Photos. See them in the post below:

Budsies – Personalized Gifts

Budsies​ was able to transform one of our favorite drawings into a plush toy that we can love and cherish forever.

 

The peacock drawing has always made us smile and it is bringing even bigger smiles now.

I love how they transformed the details from my daughter’s drawing she drew her daddy 3 years ago into a sentimental gift we can all love. The large smile and bright colors were a perfect match. The plush is so soft and cozy you will love hugging your one-of-a-kind creation over and over, again.
