Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! J.D. has been home 4 days this week, which never happens, so we've been spending lots of time as a family and getting a bunch of house project's done. It has been a wonderful week and I'm not looking forward to him going back to work tomorrow. Here's a little peek into what we've been up to!

Yesterday Kona and I made a grapefruit bird feeder. It was super easy and such a fun little DIY project for us to do together. I know the boys are going to love watching the birds out the window.
Materials Needed
Orange or Grapefruit
Bird Seed
Wooden Dowels
Yarn, string or fishing line

I made my first pie last Saturday and it was so good! I've always been really intimidated to make a pie, but I found this recipe for a cinnamon roll apple pie and couldn't pass it up. Kona helped me make it, which is always my favorite. 

While we're talking about amazing food, for dinner last night, I made these cheddar beer burgers and oh my word they were good! Everybody loved them and I can't wait to make them again.

On Monday we met some friends at a park to have a picnic and go for a walk. While we were on our walk we saw baby ducks and geese! The kids were so excited and couldn't get enough of them.
Later in the week the boys and I were on a walk when Kona saw a bird egg that had hatched. He is always asking us which animals hatch out of eggs, so this was perfect for him. I love spring and all the baby animals it brings!
I had the best Mother's Day on Sunday! J.D. had to work, but that didn't stop us from having a wonderful day. My Dad and I took the boys to a dinosaur museum and Kona was on cloud 9. When J.D. got home we ordered pizza and had a movie night. It was the perfect day with my amazing boys. I love them more than words can express and I feel so honored to be their Mom.
My best friend sent me this article about being a boy mom and it is a tear jerker. It is beautifully written and expresses what I have never been able to put into words. If you are a boy mom I hope you love it as much as I do.
