hello monday {playing in cayucos, ca}

March 19th | adventures, family

Hello friends! We had a very rainy weekend here–which makes it hard to believe that just a week ago it was sunny and warm and we took an afternoon to go play by the beach in Cayucos. Nana was visiting too, which made it even more special. Here are photos from the beach and of course, some hellos for today.
Hello clean house {well at least the living room and kitchen}

Hello menu planned and groceries bought! If I do those two things on Sunday, the whole week goes more smoothly. This week’s menu: turkey burgers with sweet potato fries, homemade veggie lasagna {zucchini instead of pasta} and a new quinoa recipe from my friends Allegra.

Hello three baskets of folded laundry waiting to be put away.

Hello David who is feeling much better and full of energy. He’s back to his rascally ways. {uh oh!}

Hello star wars. It seems be the theme around here lately.

Hello Easter coming quickly. It’s only three weeks away and I need to start thinking about baskets and dying eggs and other fun stuff!

Hello wanting to organize our home more–and literally not being able to find time to do it.

Hello healthy family? We all seem to be well at the moment–I’m hoping it lasts!

Hello writing and singing and acting out dramatic fight scenes. Matthias is so creative.

Hello Jane. I’ve been wanting to watch this movie lately–must find time to squeeze it in!

Hello ideas. I’ve got some new ones that I can’t wait to make into realities.

Hello family pictures. I just LOVE it when we get all four of us in one shot.

Hello happy Matthias. I believe he said he didn’t want to go to the beach. And then he had fun. I’ve proved it again-moms are usually right!

Hello growing boys. Matthias looks so big in this picture. Can we slow time just a bit?

Hello sweet husband. I love you!

Hello Monday! It’s a brand new week and a fresh start. What are you saying hello to this week? Link up in the comments section or just leave your list with some hellos!

    Love your photos–how do you take the “self-portraits” (like in the last photo) with your DSLR? Mine is so heavy I can’t do it! Maybe I need to hit the gym? :)
