Family trip for this little guys upcoming birthday 🎉 today we spent the day at a new zoo, well a new one for us!! We got to experience the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha!! Our 👣 are exhausted 😊 so many steps!! We even had to change shoes
He is so so appreciative of this day he has thanked us a million times, we also were reading about poachers and I was explaining to him ppl do it for the 💵 he goes it's not about being rich, ur right buddy it's not we thought for an almost 7 yr old to know that-we have done something right 😍
Yesterday’s weather was perfect! ☀️⚾️
We were headed to take the boys to the aquarium and Dre decided it would be more fun to take Aaron to his first Phillie’s game instead. Last minute change of plans usually aren’t my thing, but he was telling me I need to be more spontaneous. 🙄
When we were dating we used to go to baseball games all of the time. We had the Sunday season package and that was always something we both looked forward to. We even traveled to a few other cities to watch them play—New York, Baltimore, Chicago. Chicago being my favorite!
12 years of baseball games together and I know many more as the boys get bigger. Ethan’s favorite sport right now is baseball. He says he’s gonna play in the majors one day. ❤️
The Night Safari in Singapore is world renowned.
The only problem is you can’t see it 😂
The day didn’t really go as planned. I really wanted to do the buggy private tour of the night safari. I tried to book online before. I looked at their website EXTENSIVELY. There was no where to book.🙅🏼♀️ I emailed and Chris emailed. We both got a “canned” answer back. 🤷🏼♀️SO we decide to show up ahead of time and get to the ticket counter and they said we have to book in advance. 🤦🏼♀️
Chris doesn’t particularly think we should go to zoo’s anyway on this trip. 🐘🦍🦓He doesn’t really love them at home anyway and thinks it's silly to go across the world and visit a zoo lol. But since the goal is fun family activities. It was overall a success!
We may or may not have gotten our 7 Wayfinder’s family Christmas card photo here. 😂😂
Let us know what you think in the comments!
Our last day at Disney for a while. We got through everything we wanted to and could (height restrictions). It wasn't crazy busy on mother's day and because we got there right at opening and made good use of fast passes it went very well. Kids had a blast. Ariel absolutely loved the Dumbo ride. She loved watching it and going on it. Maybe it has to do with her love for anything elephants 😂
We also finally got a family photo in front of Mickey, Walt and the "castle". Overall it turned out really well. So of course I bought a little frame for our photo. Got into the park at 8am sharp, and left right after the parade at about 6:30pm. Aaron said he wants to go to Disney again. But it most likely will.be a while unless they have some good deals 😉 now time to get on with our usual week!

I just left the little man at home (awake 😂 the penalty of a full nights sleep for us all) with his Daddy on full time daycare rather than me and I am off to work to do ten KIT days in a row followed by a further ten SPLIT days two weeks later... 👩🏻💻 And then two weeks after that (on 8th July) I go back to work properly with Tuesdays off... 🤯 How has a year almost vanished? I should have so many thoughts and emotions but I haven’t allowed myself to process any yet 🥰 I love this picture from a rainy day last week, how he is looking at me. I am certain he won’t forget me in a day. And I love how perfectly imperfect it is too with the rolled up spare carpet (it’s been there a year now 🤦🏻♀️) and the washing drying... I think that epitomises life really and I love it. Even on the miserable days his world needs fun and love and he thinks it’s perfect even if it’s imperfect 💙 I am going to miss him today and already can’t wait to be home for bathtime, Daddy had better send many photos throughout the day of their adventures 🛁 As much as I am going to miss my days with my little one, I am hesitatingly looking forward to being back at work too. Luckily, I don’t have to go back to work at all but I want to and I love my job thank goodness. I just need to make it work as the time I spend with this little one and his Daddy is so precious. This phased return will make going back to work in July far easier and means baby and Daddy get some awesome one on one time too (and I don’t need to think about leaving him at nursery for another month or so)... But wow, I didn’t expect time to go so fast, I haven’t even had a single day of daytime TV in all that time... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mamayougotthis #tinymoments #makingfamilymemories #lifeasmama #rememberthesemoments #livingmybestlife #xmumtribe #curiouslittleexplorers #maternityleave #workingmum #worklifebalance #separationanxiety #lovemyjob #honestparenting #motherandson #momentsinmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #lifeasmama #reallifemum #firstdaybackatwork
We had such a fun and relaxing family vacation to South Padre Island last week. Now I need your help! Where should we go next as a family ✈️????
We are open to all ideas and I really need to update my letter board!
We’re giving chair massages for the premier of The Hustle! How awesome is that?!? I seriously love my job!!
It’s official! As of today, everyone has celebrated their most recent birthday in different parts of the world! 🎉🎉 🌎
: Oahu, Hawaii
: Taipei and Bangkok (travel day!)
: Vietnam TODAY!! ✨🌟
We’ve never had a “last child” until now and it pains us to see her grow up! It’s a weird feeling to know this youngest is your “last” of everything in that age. We said goodbye to our last day of a one-year-old today ❤️
We had some wins and some losses on her birthday plans, but she was adorable and happy the whole day through 🌝. She is our little “gift” and we all adore her!
Who else has celebrated a birthday abroad? What did you love/hate about it?
Reminiscing about this magical place we went camping to last weekend. So many beautiful sunrises we watched while walking along that beach. Many wild adventures, rescue missions and so many beautiful shells collected while beach combing. But I think the biggest thing is the way we reconnect together as a family when we go camping, that is the true magic for us.
So this is our entry for MAGIC for today's #natureplaymay

I’m on the last leg of this crazy journey home and this little bottle is coming in handy. One sniff and I’m alert and my stomach which is a little uneasy from the last flight is finally calming down. I don’t know how people fly without peppermint.
Oh and you know when they turn off the air in the cabin before takeout? That’s the point in the flight you start sweating and getting uncomfortable. One drop on the back of your neck can act like a natural air conditioner and immediately cools you down!! So many uses for one drop of oil!
Weekend trip to Chicago with my dad and brother (@harleykesselman
My brother and I decided to treat my dad to a weekend in Chicago. Especially because he's a huge baseball fan and he's never been to Wrigley Field.
True story: while wearing Expos Gear we ended up being interviewed by Chuck Garfien (NBC sports Chicacgo) on TV ( @nbcschicago
). And the next day ppl started coming up to us and recognizing us. After the interview, the same night, someone from Montreal, who was also at the game, came down to find us. He invited us into his (or his company's) luxury suite, which is where this picture was taken (I didn't take the pic! Just saying). Great way to start the weekend!

The kiddos had fun at the Touch a Truck event today! Leighton was a little confused at first as to what was going on, but then he enjoyed climbing into the trucks and police car with Ellery.

Beach yoga & morning meditation.
What a great way to start the day. Surrounded by women who encourage me to reach for the stars and push me out of my comfort zone.
I’m so incredibly grateful!
⭐️ He tried his hardest every day to win the golden star ⭐️ Zog is one of Archie’s favourite bedtime books so he was delighted when we took him to the forest this week to go on his very on Zog adventure trail. We are lucky that we have one right on our doorstep at Salcey Forest, but I’m pretty sure they have these trails all over the UK and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s s great way to explore the outdoors, the activities on route get children learning and talking about nature and they get so find and discover some favourite characters. -
What really impressed me is that the trail is completely free to do, but you can pick up a pack at the forest for around £3 which comes with an activity book, reward stickers and some special secret glassses to look for hidden clues. Such a fun family day out, Archie is already wanting to go back again. -
What adventures have you been on this weekend?
Sunday morning movie fun with this crew. Now off to make my Sunday productive...
Shawn and I were so happy to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary by watching Erin in her first dance recital!
We couldn't be more proud. I know she didn't have the lead but she was our star of the show❤
