Today Ember Played with Her Toys and We Went to Five Guys

I was making breakfast and came into the living room to find this cute sight.

Ember had her favorite toys on the recliner and was quietly playing on her own. It was so cute, after she told me about what she was playing I grabbed my camera to take pictures. Times like this are my favorite memories ♥

For memory’s sake I added Ember’s toys’ names to this one.  The names Fluff, Bumble (like a bee, says Ember), and Rose are ones she chose. The others came named 🙂

The kids funnily enough love my Golden Girls magnet set on the fridge. Lyla plays with it a lot. The Blanche magnet is her favorite. haha

Later in the day we needed to go grocery shopping so we stopped at Five Guys for lunch before doing that. It was really fun.

School Picnic and Performance!

Today was Sierra, Payson, and Ember’s bring your own picnic and watch the kids perform event. They passed out awards, had all the grade levels perform songs, dances, poems, and play instruments, and also passed out the kids’ yearbooks to sign.

The school passed out popsicles.

I snapped a few pictures during the performances, they’re weird on the blog just because I blurred out everyone else’s faces. But my kiddos show. haha

After all the school kids performed it was time to get yearbooks and just hang out. The kids had fun playing around the school grounds.

Sierra and Ember showed me where their part of the school art projects were.

It was such a fun time. I had wished it was after school so Brooklyn could have been there but she didn’t mind missing it anyway she said. I missed her being there, though.

Here was a group shot I took before we went home. I love that the three kids who went to the school this last year have their yearbooks in hand 🙂

Did I Never Post These?

My mom sent the birthday people a package! Allan, Brooklyn, and Ember got birthday gifts and Sierra, Payson, and Everett got a couple little treats, too. Everyone was thrilled that day!

My mom called to ask what I thought Ember would want and for the first time in a long time I knew exactly what a kid of mine would want. My kids usually like EVERYTHING so it’s easy to just say, “literally any toy that exists.” But Ember has been really wanting a baby that drinks and pees and I couldn’t find one in our local stores!! We have limited selection here in Post Falls but my mom found the perfect one! Ember was SO excited when she opened it!

Brooke immediately watched her movie, which she loved, and has used that flashlight a LOT. Like, a really lot.

Gorgeous Day

We went for a family walk over at the lake. It was a gorgeous fall day!

So clearly we had a lot of fun looking through those telescope things and taking pictures. We headed up a hill next. We spotted a squirrel.

Then we hiked down to the lake and threw rocks in the water.

Everett was super excited to point out all the birds. This toddler loves animals and birds and bugs and yeah, anything alive 🙂
