These guys…

Every September our dear friends host a big BBQ at their summer house. Food, swimming and a lot of running around is what takes place and everyone has a blast.
Well each year this BBQ falls on the first weekend following the summer which for some reason is the busiest weekend of our year.
I haven’t attended one of their BBQ’s in the last 4 years.
I thought this year was gonna be different. The invite came out and my calendar was clear!! I was so excited to join in on the fun.
The forecast came. Rain and wet. They moved the BBQ out to Sunday…the day I did book for an event. What a bummer.
I moved on and kind of forgot about it all until last week when an email showed up in my inbox full of the most beautiful photos from that day.
Viktoria, the host and my friend, had hired a photographer, Marina Vykhodtseva who captured the most precious shots of my family.
I’m sure you can imagine just how thrilled I was when I saw these beautiful photos which I will now always treasure.
With thanksgiving coming up next week, these pictures remind me just how lucky I am to have such a special family who I love with all my heart. These guys are my everything.

Superhero Crafting with Kiwi Crate

Crafting with Luke
These days I’m looking for pretty much any cool way to entertain my kid who is totally into (in no particular order): Ninjago, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and superheroes.  You may have read about how we recently threw a superhero themed birthday party for Gavin & his friend Mike…
Well at the party we sent all of the kids off with a favor from Kiwi Crate. They each got a kit to make their own superhero masks and cuffs at home. How cute?!
I was pretty psyched to rip this one open…
Until I looked at my calendar. How the hell do me and this kid have schedules that are so stinkin’ full? So I had to ask Erin to take this one on with Lil Luke…
Well boy did he LOVE it! Filling his mask up with stickers, testing out the cuffs, eating the elastic…I mean you know. This is how we craft.

A brilliant party favor. And they offer so many different crafts and activities. AND…you can give monthly subscriptions. Makes for such a great birthday or holiday gift. I would have to think as a kid I’d be pretty excited to receive a new craft project in the mail every month…??!!

Kiwi Crate was so kind to send us these favor crafts to sample. All thoughts and taste tests were our own.

Batman + Superman Turn 5,42

A Halloween Birthday20
When a five year old kid has a clear vision of what he wants his birthday party to be you cannot help but make sure you follow through and go all out.

This summer Gavin started gearing up for his birthday very early as he was often conversing with his best friend, Mazzy’s Dad, Mike about their birthdays falling on the same day.
All summer long Gavin would tell Mike - we’re going to have a superhero bowling party, together.
Mike always agreed.
And here we are today.
Was the biggest blast. Celebrating a 5 year old boy and 42 year old man.

Ready, Set, Weekend with the Garden of Eatin’

To be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with the FALL season because I’m a true SUMMER girl BUT there are a few positives for this time of year.

Snacks N’ Sips for Halloween

Halloween Fun9
I think by now you know we love to eat and drink things that are pretty and simple to make. So here’s what we’ve been serving up this month for play dates, cocktail hour and parties.
Skewers: You can put pretty much anything on a stick these days. We took yellow grape tomatoes and mozzarella and thread onto short bamboo picks. We lay em’ over a bed of basil in a small cast iron pan. Note…these will go FAST. Make a lot. And prep in advance so you have ready to go when you’re guests arrive!

Witches Brooms: Mini Reese Peanut Butter Cups + pretzel rods = broomsticks! Does it get easier then this?
