Friday Favorites

Thank goodness it's Friday! It has been a crazy week and I'm so glad the weekend is here. We don't have any plans and I can't wait to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather we're having.  Before I sign off for the weekend, I wanted to share some favorites from this week!

We spent this past weekend celebrating some of our favorite people! We had Kona's 4th birthday party on Saturday and celebrated J.D. and our Dad's on Father's Day. It was a wonderful weekend filled with family, friends and so much love. Kona has been in love with dinosaurs for a few years now, which made this party to fun to plan and pull together. Seeing Kona's face light up with pure joy made my heart melt. He had so much fun and keeps insisting that we are having another party this weekend!
You can see all of the party details here!

My best friend from college and her family came down this weekend for Kona's party, and we loved getting to celebrate Father's Day with them. They are like family and we love them all so much. It has been a honor to watch her family grow, and see her wonderful husband become an outstanding father.  
I have a hard time putting into words how amazing J.D. is as a Dad. He is loving, kind, patient, hands on and everything a dad should be and more. I'm not sure how we got so lucky.

J.D. had Monday off so we spent most of the day at the little wading pool by our house. It was such a relaxing day playing, eating a picnic lunch, riding bikes and swimming. These are the types of days summer is made for.

Tuesday evening a thunderstorm rolled threw town, which meant jumping in the rain puddles! Seeing my boys run through the rain puddles, takes me right back to my childhood. Warm summer nights spent stomping in the water, it doesn't get much better than that!
You can find their rain boots here.

Watching little kids play baseball is one of my favorite things to do. I love everything about it and couldn't wait to watch our neighbor play. She did so good and the boys loved cheering her on. Kona can't wait to play next year and asks me every day if it's time for him to play. He won't believe it next year when it really is his turn!

Here are some of my favorite Pinterest finds this week!
I want to make this corn hole set pronto! It is so cute and I know we would have a blast playing.
This weekend I'm planning on making these paint monsters with Kona. I know he will love it!
I made these pineapple teriyaki meatballs this week and they were delicious.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

  3. My 6 yr old would love a dinosaur party! I will have to keep that in mind. He's part of some secret dinosaur club at school where they play dinosoar games! Ha. I'm loving those yellow rain boots. Sounds like a great week. Enjoy the relaxing weekend!
