Mother/Son day in Newport Beach, CA
This past Saturday, I had some fun with Luke going to the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach for his cousin Jodey’s 9th Birthday!
These two have a close bond and it warms my heart because cousin relationships are so important! First, we enjoyed lunch by the pool.
Love the views of the boats and Newport Harbor!
After lunch we strolled around the harbor on a duffy boat while enjoying drinks, food and birthday donuts, Jodey’s favorite!
My cousin Whitney and I were like sisters growing up. We have a long list of childhood memories together. We may or may not have gotten into some trouble during our shenanigans from our younger days, lol It makes me so happy to see our sons building a lifetime friendship together.
Chillin’ on the boat together, enjoying the view while listening to an awesome playlist of music.
The boys each got to drive the boat, always an exciting thing to do.
A FAVORITE of mine is getting one on one time with my boy.
This smile will never get old!
After our time on the water it was time for a dip in the jacuzzi, a FAVORITE for the boys!
While Luke and I were off having fun, Tyler and Jason had fun one-on-one time together too. They went to the best park ever in San Clemente.
They had lunch at McDonald’s and then heated up our jacuzzi, put on some tunes and enjoyed their time together!
A FAVORITE is when my boys get fresh haircuts!
This quote is a FAVORITE and very much true!
Tyler’s Sick Day
Tyler had a random sick day this past week. This was not a favorite, but what was a FAVORITE was how he handled himself with throwing up. You mama’s out there know how hard it is when your littles throw up and there is no warning and it goes everywhere except where it should go. Well, Tyler let us know beforehand and he made it to the toilet and into a shallow bucket by his bed. When this happens, it’s HUGE and life changing, lol We’re so proud of him yet still sad he wasn’t feeling well. Thankfully, it only lasted a day and he had no other symptoms so he probably ate something that upset his tummy. At the time I wasn’t sure what he had so unfortunately I had to cancel Mother’s Day lunch plans with my mom.
This huge YODA pillow helps everything feel better!
In case you missed posts from earlier this week:
This Let’s Look post series comes out once a month, where it gives you peeks into different areas of our life. The topic this month was Outdoor Organization, I show you how we organize outside as well as give you a tour of our backyard. You can read more about it HERE.
Thanks for following along today, I hope you all had a great week! This weekend, Luke has his last games for the season with Basketball and Flag Football….I can’t believe the season is already over, make’s me sad. Other than that no big plans, just Family Fun Night on Friday. Ohh last week we watched “The Mitchell’s vs. The Machines”, highly recommend watching this movie with your kids. We all loved it and it just came out on Netflex. Saturday Luke has arranged for two of his friends to come over and play, it’s fun seeing him make his own social plans. On Sunday, we’re going out to dinner and still need to plan what we want to do during the day…. so we’ll have time for some spontaneous family fun 🙂
