Five Loves on Friday!

Happy Friday!!!  It's been such a funtastic week!  Check it out y'all!...

1.  A Sandy Sunday!
Sunday we packed a picnic lunch and headed to the park for some family fun.  Lunch always tastes better in the sunshine surrounded by those you love the most!  Afterward we strolled through an annual fundraising event in our area, Sand in the City.  I'm always so impressed by the incredible {& incredibly cute} sculptures there!

Our favorite sand sculpted sweetness at Sand in the City ...

2.  Exploring Lewis and Clark Visitors Center

3.  Cheesing it up Downtown

4.  Mommy/Daughter Day & a Fabulous Night with Family

On Thursday my mom invited Princess to come to a birthday party for one of her daycare kiddos during Little One's morning taekwondo class.   She stayed through the afternoon enjoying herself while lending her Grandma Kathy a helpful hand.  Meanwhile, Little One and I enjoyed a pretty AMAZING Mommy/Daughter Day!!  {I adore one on one time with my sweeties!}  We started it off with one of her favorite things, {the aforementioned} black belt class.  Afterwards we headed to the library and let my girly's curiosity roam free!  She LOVES learning and found a lot of books that sparked her interest.  In the coming week she'll be learning all about whales, whale sharks, dolphins, bees, and how taste buds work.  We also found a few fun movies and some cds to sing our hearts out to! ;)  Next we headed to Taco Bell for their Happier Hour.  Cheers to inexpensive yumminess!  We made a quick trip home to drop off our library goodies and for a wardrobe change, then headed out for a walk and talk to visit TWO different playgrounds.  Why two? Because two is better than one, of course!  She enjoyed many a slide, several swings, and we giggled and sighed happy sighs.  It was a GOOD day!  In fact, Little One declared it "The BEST day EVER!" :)

As soon as we got home a text came in saying that my parents and Princess were heading our way to pick us up for a pizza dinner date...
Yummy eats with Grandpa Bob & Grandma Kathy!

...followed by treats and talk at their house!  Then my sweet hubby got off work earlier than I'd expected so we had a long(er) evening together too!  Days just don't get much better than that!

5.  Little One's Crafty Cuteness
With a handful of crafting supplies this cutie will create her own lit'l toy with "character"!
Fiercely cute!

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Have a fabulous weekend!
