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.

Hello heart melting. Lexie is such a sweet cousin and helped David walk.

Hello twin sis. Any time I get to spend with her is absolutely precious to me!
