A Day At The Lake

I'm going to pick up where i left off.
After a morning of strawberry picking
 We headed to one of our favorite parks in Seattle.
When the sun shines in Seattle you drink it up!
So at this park they have a nice
 wading pool for kids to play in, and I'm telling you
 if Hailey gets an opportunity to splash around in water she will!

After splashing around we went and checked out a peddle boat or is it paddle boat?
I'm going to go with peddle boat because peddling is what we're doing!
We'd never done it before so it was a first for all of us.
Not going to lie, it was hard work but it was totally worth it!
I think we were out there for almost an hour.

After we wore out are legs we went over to the playground to wear them out some more!
And then we ended that amazing afternoon with a drive in dinner.
one of my favorite places.
(it kind of makes up for In-N-Out, just a little)

After that we headed home.
It's pretty rare for her (now being a big 5 year old) to take a nap.
But after that much fun in the sun i think it was needed!

Picking Strawberries

Another thing on our Summer Fun list was to pick strawberries.
I don't know why but I've always wanted to do this.
Wish granted.
We went early on a Saturday morning to pick.
picture perfect day.
(in my opinion)

Let the picking begin!

The strawberries were perfect!
I'm so glad we went when we did because an hour after we left they closed the fields because they had been picked clean!

Busy picking!
She did such a great job.

I brought home about 5lb 
(not enough)
There's something about going and picking your own strawberries i don't know if it was because they were organic but these strawberries were THE BEST I've EVER had! 
Strawberry picking is DEFINITELY  going to be a yearly 'tradition'

Easy Summer Treat

Hello All!
Happy Summer!
I'm so glad that summer is finally here!
(although it needs to warm up already in WA)

What better way to kick off summer than with something cool and sweet?
We made these with what i had on hand, and it was quick and easy!
Hailey had so much fun helping, she has Always loved to help in the kitchen!

Here's What I Used:
2 Cups strawberries
1 Banana
2 tbsp Sugar 
3/4 Cup Yogurt

Oh, and also an ice cube tray and tooth picks

After measuring everything out, dump it all in the blender.
As you can tell this is her Favorite part!

Then blend.
Also, cover your ears this Ninja is LOUD!

After blending I poured into the ice cube tray and put it into the freezer for 1 1/2 hours

Then we stuck the toothpicks in it.

And put them back into the freezer for 4 hours

Then enjoy!
What are YOU doing to stay cool this summer?

After breakfast we headed down to the Seattle Children's museum, per request of the birthday girl.
(While we were there we met up with some friends and also had lunch with them.)

When we got home, she tried out her new wheels

Opened presents

So excited for anything 'frozen'

Cake and ice cream.
She picked out the cake and was so excited about it!

Time to play with new toys!

Such a great day!

Valentine Hoops

Well while I'm on a roll might as well as do 2 posts in one day because who knows when i'll get around to posting again! 
So while browsing Pinterest I came across these beauties.
Seriously, fell in love with them right away!
And so i made my own, pretty much the same.
I tell you i have embroidered since i was 10?
I don't even remember.
Thankfully it's easy and i Love how these turned out!
I used some embroidery hoops, some i had already some i got at a thrift store
and then i got some 
and buttons from Joanns

Then i started to sew.

They were all really fun to sew so finished this project in 2 days
 (probably could of done it one)

Really the picture doesn't do it justice y'all
You just have to make your own or come to my house to see them.
This is something i could see my self leaving up all year round or even incorporating into something on another wall.
