***Hello Monday is where I greet the new week with an open heart and a fresh perspective. It’s a new beginning–and there’s so much to be thankful for! Join me by leaving your own hellos in the comments section or linking up a hello monday post there!***

Hello friends! Last weekend we went down to San Diego, California and celebrated Matthias’ 10th birthday at Legoland. We met up with twin sister and her girls {who are also twins!} and we had a blast.

I can’t believe my youngest is ten. That’s crazy! And exciting. He’s such a fun, tender-hearted kiddo.

How about some hellos for a new week?

Hello happy to be with cousins!

Hello goofball! Matthias wanted me to take a pic of him running from the lego dinosaur.
