Spring Break Stuff

Oh, Monday!  We are slowly coming down from a spring break high over here, it's been very busy and very fun, which I know other parents can relate to, can make your heart all sorts of full & your body all sorts of exhausted all at the same time.  Waverly had the week off school, which in theory isn't that big of a deal since she only goes two mornings, but it made the biggest difference in our schedule.  We were able to get out of the house right after Avalon's nap, which is usually when I have to pick up Waverly from school & rush home to get lunch and some downtime.  We made it to the aquarium, the beach, and daddy even took off work one day for a trip to the children's museum.   

Lots of chaos, getting out of the house with two little ones is seriously no joke (those of you with more than two can go ahead & laugh at me, I'm sure I will laugh at myself one day), but well worth it.  As the girls get older they are interacting and understanding more, it's just my favorite.

Waverly's Dress -  Avalon's TopAvalon's Bubble -  My Boots - Girls Headbands
If you follow me on Instagram, you may also have read that we had our first kid-free house overnight since Avalon was born!  The girls had sleepovers with family (two separate houses, it seriously takes a village!), and my husband & I went to a friends wedding.  We woke up Sunday morning (at 7) with hangovers and way too quiet of a house, missing our little ladies like crazy.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! XO

  2. Sweet babies! Getting out of the house with 2 is definitely no joke - I'm not sure how I'm going to manage with 3 in just a few short months. Eeek!!!!!

  3. Oh I love seeing that sisterly bond! I bet your heart swells every time you see them loving on each other! And I know what you mean that even though it's just two mornings, a week off makes a big deal! We have such a late spring break this year, but we already have a few play dates planned for it!
