Saturday in Review

Last Saturday was the first Saturday in a while where we really didn't have anywhere to be or anywhere to go. We had some party prep and cleaning to get done around the house but there was not much else on our agenda and it was nice. I started the morning with an early hike with my sister Kim and friend Ashley. We were at the mountain (Piestewa Peak) at 5 A.M. so I am not exaggerating when I say early! We made it to the top in like 33 minutes too so it was a pretty quick hike. When I got back to my sister's house, my nephew was up and I decided to steal him and bring him to my house to play with Everly. They are for sure a handful but they love seeing each other. They get along and fight like brother and sister. It is cute and exhausting all rolled together. They did pretty good though and we even did a little painting craft. Justin got a lot of yard work done while the kids played outside and we made our first batch of cold-brew coffee at home to be served during the little party Sunday morning. I also made some chocolate chip pancake bites to dip in syrup for the party and those were super easy and yummy too. I didn't shower until like 5 o'clock but it was a really nice Saturday regardless!

Starting the cold-brew. It sat for about 9 hours.
3 cuties...and yes, they fought over the ride-on toys.

They used a cork to make red dots and we turned the red dots into ladybugs after they dried.  
Good thing Everly has 2 strollers.
