Hello from L.A.!
On Friday, I was in Boston, and today, Los Angeles (well, Burbank to be exact!). I’m here with my big kids and we’re about to film a cooking segment on Hallmark’s Home & Family show. It will air tomorrow, so set your DVRs! We are so excited to be cooking together on TV! If you don’t have your copy of my newest book, Kids in the Kitchen, then you can order yours today HERE.
And for your Monday post…a bunch of random pictures. I will not be blogging tomorrow because let’s be real…by the time I do the show and fly home, it will be after midnight. #eeks So, I’ll catch back up with you on Wednesday for our What’s Up Wednesday link up! Our bonus question this month is “What’s your favorite spring wardrobe piece?”.
Have a great day!
Madeley was a little upset, but big sister Kensington was quick to swoop in with a pep talk. These two are peas in a pod.
I walked through the house and found this 🙂 . Andrew had his snowboard out and Smith apparently decided to create his own. #cleverkid
They’ve always been like this when they sleep. In real life, they pretend it doesn’t happen…but I have the pictures to prove it 😉 .
On St. Patrick’s Day, I went to the zoo with the first grade on a field trip. It was one of our best trips there! Love hanging out with my sweet boy!!
Later that night, we were at the big boys’ first baseball game and I looked over and Bowen was showing Madeley how to play football. Ha!
Madeley checking out her friend Libby’s snack. Madeley looks very interested, right?! And just for a frame of reference, Madeley is two days older than Libby…and Libby is a petite thing herself…soooooooo you see how tiny Madeley is?!
I decided to go to the grocery store early on Saturday morning before the kids woke up. I was pulling out of the garage when this sweet girl opened the back door and asked if she could go with me…pajamas and all 🙂 .
Last Saturday, this precious girl had her first t-ball game. The thing about Ashby Shull is that she doesn’t get why we’re all so excited that she’s playing this season. This girl does NOT let her disability slow her down. She is pure JOY and so DETERMINED! We are so proud of her!!! (Because swinging a bat with basically one arm and hand is tough!)
First game! Ready to take the field!
Hitting the ball like a champ!
With a brother and a sister playing baseball this season, this girl has learned how to CHEER and CLAP like a pro!
And then when this sweet girl came up to bat, we cheered the LOUDEST. Her mama would have wanted to be there so much…but I just know in my heart, that God let her watch. Sweet Miley did an amazing job too! Talk about a girl with perseverance and tenacity! #justlikehermama
Ashby’s big brother was giving her pointers out on the field 🙂 .
It was Ashby’s turn at “the mound” (with Coach Dad!).
I’ve never seen a more beautiful friendship.
And then after Smith’s game that afternoon, we headed to my parents’ town to celebrate my dad and aunt’s birthdays with bowling…
Lots of food, lots of kids, lots of bowling and lots of fun!
These two had a full day!
I love me some S & C!
Do you see how many strikes in a row Catherine has up there?!?! Someone sign her up for a league!
On Monday, we celebrated the first day of spring with lunch at the park!
We spend a lot of time waiting in the car for the big kids.
Tuesday night was Andrew’s last night of snowboarding in Colorado, so after speech therapy, we walked to one of our favorite pizza places for dinner on the patio.
Whew! Happy Monday friends! See you tomorrow on Home & Family and then back here on Wednesday :).
