WITL Day 1 - Monday May 9, 2016

I am participating in Ali Edward's Week in the Life project again this year (so excited) and am planning to document some of the details here, although won't be sharing alllllllll the photos.  I love this project because it is something that forces me to look at our family, our routines, etc, and I can see what is the same, and what has changed from year to year.  This is my third time participating in this project and I am looking forward to what I discover about us this week!

Funnily enough, all three years I have participated in this project were weeks that weren't 'normal' for us.  Each time we have been visiting family, and here we are again, staying at my brother and sister-in-laws house for a week long visit.  So maybe what I am learning is that we like to visit people? haha  These two came into bed with me for a morning snuggle - love them to pieces.

Our morning was filled with breakfast (rice krispies for everyone, thank you), tv watching, and playing in the kitchen while I did the dishes, before heading over to my parents to visit.  I had a few errands to run this morning, so my mom watched the kids while I took care of business.  

I dropped off a scrumptious lunch of McDonald's happy meals (the kids were thrilled) in between my last few errands, and they were delighted to eat outdoors on the deck.

S headed inside with my mom for her nap and I hung out with A outside all afternoon.  We are LOVING that this is possible as the weather has been terrible.  He had so much fun playing outside all day, and we plan to make this  a habit while visiting this week.

My parents were coming to my brother's for Chinese take out for dinner, so while we waited for everyone to show up after work, the kids and I watched tv and played with toys.  They are both loving this couch extension, especially S, who has declared this as her official tv watching spot.

The kids loved spending some silly the with daddy after dinner.  He has been working odd hours for the past week and they have been missing him a LOT!

After getting jimmies on and snacks eaten, we piled into the bed A is sleeping in and read some books before bed.  The kids (A especially) love the Disney Story Central App because their options are endless.  We fluctuate between watching a show, reading a story, of a combination before bed.  These days we are heavy on the story reading, which I of course love.

Week In The Life™ is a seven-day documentary project devised by Ali Edwards with the goal of capturing the simple everyday details of life with photos and words. Read more on her website here.
