Last Weekend

Last weekend was a long weekend for us – with Grandma back from wintering in Florida, the hubby and I had a long over-do date night.  We went to a concert at the local casino to see one of our favorites: Kenny Chesney!

We, the parents, spent much of Saturday recovering from our late night… but managed to fit in a few adventures with the kiddos over the rest of the weekend, including a trip to our favorite Boundless Playground and the local Natural History Museum.

My Favorite Posts of the Weekend

It’s always so hard to pick favorites from all the great content shared each week.  This week, I picked two posts that fit with Big M’s current botany fascination, and one that fits with our love of DIY toys and book-linked gifts.

We Love Weekends Favorites 2015-05-01

If you’ve been following our How Does Your Garden Grow? series, you know that Big M is about all growing things these days.  The Eggshell Lorax from Rubber Boots and Elf Shoes and a Montessori-inspired Introduction to Botany for Kids from Study at Home Mama were the perfect activities to go along with our Germination Windows this week.

Our third favorite was this great gift idea from Non Toy Gifts: A Detective Kit for Boys.  We love DIY toys, and love even more activities and gifts based on books.  Anything to keep those kids loving to read!

Thank you all for sharing with us last week, and we hope you all share at #WeLoveWeekends again.
