Five Senses Monday

Happy Monday, friends. Auntie-hood is exhausting, I tell you. But super fun, too. I spent the entire weekend (Friday night til 1 a.m. today) with my niece and nephew, Sophia and Joseph. With their parents out of town, we relaxed, crafted, baked and played hard. I do think, though, I left them slightly more exhausted than they left me (at least that’s what backseat droopy eyes and no-fuss bedtime tell me).

Here is Five Senses Monday, where I reflect on the past few days through the five senses. Play along in the comments or on your own blog.

Thin mints baked into a chocolate chip cookie pizza. Yup. (Recipe later this week.)

Four- and 10-year-olds singing along to Selena Gomez. They know all of the words, people.

Sun. The kind of sun tans are made of. It was gloriously hot. Joseph even asked, “Did you bring ‘sunbwock,’ ‘Waurden?’ (cus that’s how 4-year-olds say Lauren).

Maple syrup and diner coffee.

Our Shrinky Dink drawings shrink up under the oven light.

And here are a few snippets (tons more later):

PJs and toys:Play-doh and tiny animals:A picnic in the living room:Wakey, wakey:Out for breakfast:Someone is happy:He made Shrinky Dink glasses and people. Fallen creamer castle:Whip!And later, Girl Scout thin mint cookie pizza:Us, on a picnic with our longboard, scooter and tricycle:I told you there was sun:
Longboard:After all that sun, pedaling and two bottles of Gatorade, we were still thirsty. Off to Starbucks for iced tea and water we went:Before bed, a little more art:

    What a precious drawing! Those shrinky dink glasses literally made me laugh so hard I started coughing. Also, I take back whatever I said previously… those little animals were a good buy!
