HAPPY (SUMMER) TRAVELS: A SEASIDE SCAVENGER HUNT PRINTABLE

a-day-at-the-beach-scavenger-hunt-printable

The kids had an extra long Memorial Day weekend (5 days off!) and even though a lot of it was spent at baseball games we were able to squeeze in a day trip to Bainbridge Island, WA in the Puget Sound. Before we left I put together a beach scavenger hunt to bring with us. My kids go crazy for activities like this but they already have so much fun at the beach that I wasn’t sure they would participate, but they did and they loved it!

I’ll share more about our trip tomorrow but you can click to download the scavenger hunt activity here:

On another note, how cute is Poppy’s little purse from Swankaroo!? Tilly brought her’s along for our adventure too and they were perfect for holding little snacks, activities and treasures from the beach.

Do you guys have a favorite beach activity? Sorta wish we would have brought a couple kites this trip…. next time!

notes to santa.

we haven’t celebrated turkey day yet, but already i feel like i’m behind for christmas! ha! how is that possible!? the only thing i have going for me is that we’ve written down our gift list and thanks to online shopping it should be pretty easy to check everything off. i anticipate however, that my children will still be telling me about a new item on their wish list about every 5 minutes from now until christmas eve. as fun and cute as it is to see them so excited it also gets annoying. in a hurry. the solution?  i made some notes so they can tell santa all about it, either in words or drawing, and set out a jar to collect them all until they are “sent” to the north pole.

fingers crossed, it works like a charm and if you want to give it a try there is a link below to download!

truth be told, we don’t focus too much on the man in the red suit during christmas, but he does make a really good scapegoat. we’re also getting santa pictures taken this year for the first time since espen (now 8) was a baby (can’t wait to share!). how much santa is involved in your christmas merry making?

happy thanksgiving week friends!

lunch boxes they’ll <3.

i’ve always tried to pack healthy school lunches for my kids that cater slightly to each one’s taste (so they actually eat it) but after failing miserably at it last year and as a result spending way too much at the starbuck’s drive-thru on protein packs, i decided that this year lunch packing would be a family affair. my job is to keep the kitchen stocked (and pitch-in a bit with packing) and their job is to do the rest!

to help with the process i put together a lunchbox wish list and wanted to share (download link below). ask the kids to check off  an item or two in each section every week or two so you’ll know what to add to your shopping list — that way there should always be a couple things they will be excited about packing and you won’t have to do any guesswork! (win, win)

now if i could just figure out a good time to do the packing…  i really dread getting everything out after i’ve made and cleaned up dinner at night but time always seems to runout in the morning. if you have any tips i’d love to hear them!
