Weekly Recap #21

Another busy week for the books! Some great things happened this week - some I can mention now, and some things I'll save for another post. The next couple of weeks are jam-packed for me... probably a prelude to my schedule this summer. Oy!


This was the final Cubbies before the big Awards Night next week. Then it's the final Cubbies till next year. Already! This year flew by. So happy that my boy will be a Sparkie next year. Takes me back to my own childhood with Awana clubs, such a fun time for me when I was little.

While the kids were at Cubbies, I enjoyed a fire pit meeting with my Community Group. It was our last meeting until next year too!


I did have my Stork meeting at the Irish pub in Geneva but didn't take any pics. I did get the cuties though.

Peek a Boo!!!

Sleeping Beauty

Wednesday started off as a normal day. I was taking my pics of the kids like any other morning.

Boss lady

He would be so much cuter if not for that nasty cradle cap that just won't go away!
I noticed Peytie was breathing heavily and he had a barking, seal-like cough. I figured let me just give the doc a call to check. Then we quickly ended up...

At the ER with Peytie. They monitored his oxygen levels, tested his (lack of) mucus for RSV, and x-rayed his chest to check for fluid. We learned, after a few hours, all those tests and LOTS OF TEARS, that he has croup and there's basically nothing we can do about it. It's supposed to clear up on its own so we'll see. He was the cutest little Godfather in the ER though!


Lauryn met Sophie the Giraffe on Thursday! I think she's a fan.


It was Earth Day on Friday! The Hawthorne Hill Nature Center in Elgin had a cute family-friendly event to celebrate the day. We made super-cute crafts, listened to some live music, took a walk on the trail, and learned some ways that we can better take care of our planet. Such a fun activity with Brayden.

Making a bird feeder.

Weaving a web.

Making an owl craft.


Saturday was virtually a perfect day. I took Brayden to the Randall Oaks Petting Zoo in West Dundee where they were having their Spring at the Zoo event. We had a great time feeding the animals, having a picnic lunch, and then running around at the playground. My heart was so full. I couldn't have asked for a better day.


First thing on Sunday there were some snaps of the babies!

Straight chillin'!
Then, Sunday marked the end of a very Brayden-centric weekend. His little cousin, Ethan, had a birthday party at the Jump Zone in Schaumburg! It is located deep into an industrial park and for a second I thought we got lost! Thank goodness we didn't because Brayden wouldn't have wanted to miss the 7 giant inflatables! Such a fun time spent with family.

This is one of the sweetest moments I have ever witnessed at a birthday party. Big bro certainly loves little bro.
