Hey friends! How was your weekend? Hope it was nice and relaxing one!
We started our Saturday with coconut pancakes from Trader Joe’s – the latest find. When I saw this pancake mix at TJ a couple days ago, I knew I had to try it. Bingo! It’s not a particularly healthy combo (wheat and added sugar) but it was SO GOOOOOD! We enjoyed the pancakes with maple syrup and fresh fruit.
If you shop at Trader Joe’s, have you noticed how good their sample station has gotten lately? During our last trip they served turkey chilly over corn bread sprinkled with shredded Mexican cheese mix. The kids scarfed down 2 samples each before I had to pull them away from the stand and explain the difference between a sample and a full meal. But in the back of my head all I could think was: “yummy dinner with 5 min prep time“. Sign me up. Into the cart they went: 2 turkey chilly cans, the cheese mix and a corn bread mix 🙂
After a glorious breakfast we headed to Playformance for the open gym time.
Kids had a blast jumping, climbing, bouncing and swinging on a rope. This gym is definitely one of our favorite places in town. They have mats for climbing and jumping, a small rock climbing wall, basketball hoops, etc.
This was little Miss’ first time in this gym and the whole experience must have given her some confidence, because early on Sunday morning my husband found her on the carpet. She climbed out of her crib for the first time!! It was bittersweet converting her crib to a toddler bed. When did this happen? I just want her to stay my little baby for a little bit longer. She didn’t seem to mind though:
She was definitely excited about the newly gained independence! Sunday morning we ventured out for a little walk/hike with a few friends and kiddos:
There are several trails but we pick an easy one (because of the kids). It was a perfect weather for that and I can’t wait to come back again with the fam before it starts getting too hot. Half way through the hike we found a nice snack spot:
(hiking is SOOO exhausting!!)
All right my friends, it is time to catch up on the Oscars! Hope you enjoy the rest of your evening!
