Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

Growing up, I always wanted a sibling. I wished over every star and every birthday candle. I even asked my magic eight ball constantly if I would ever have one but as many times as it told me “all signs point to yes”, I remained an only child. I look forward to the days when my three girls appreciate that they have best friends for life... two women who will always have their back, lend them a hand or provide a shoulder to cry on. In the meantime, I make sure to create fun reasons for them to “work” together without bickering. So, I’m excited to announce that Iyla and Falynn are starting a new venture together, @thesuperkidlife and I hope you’ll follow along and show them some love. Although I will run the IG page for them for now, Iyla will be in charge of content and stories, so you’re in for a treat! They already have their first sponsored posts lined up! Stay tuned. . .

If you’ve never tried them, this is your reason to. If you’ve tried them and aren’t really a fan, this recipe is going to change your mind! I haven’t met a person who wasn’t a fan after they tried my collard greens. After years of keeping this recipe all to myself, I’m finally sharing it to change the minds of all of those greens-haters. So no preconceived notions about whether or not you like collard greens. Instead, I challenge you to try this recipe out and tell me you aren’t a fan! The recipe is on the blog (link in bio or swipe up in stories). Will you try them? .

Is it just me or is the weekend before the kids go back to school after a break, the absolute busiest?! AD: While it felt like we were go-go-go, we did make some time to visit our local park so Falynn and Iyla could play with their new favorite toy, Stomp Rocket! Have you seen this yet? Swipe to see it in action and check out our stories for even more fun! Stomp Rocket is pretty much the coolest toy and it teaches STEM principles, which is a huge plus! It comes with three different stunt planes designed by aeronautical engineers to do a variety of amazing tricks. The rockets soar up to 400 feet in the air, so it keeps them running after the rockets (amazing exercise)! @originalstomprocket reduces screen time with a toy that’s 100% kid-powered by jumping on the launch pad. The girls love to see who can make it go the highest and the farthest! I love that you can play with it in your backyard but it’s also portable and light enough to take with you. It makes the best gift and is available at your in @target stores and online!

In honor of Pigeon’s 16th BIRD-day, we decided to create a fun BIRD-day craft! I have to say that of all of the projects we’ve ever done, Falynn absolutely loved this one the most. She’s been a huge Mo Willems fan since she was old enough to go to the library. The Pigeon series is at the top of her list. She will read them to anyone that will listen and she just giggles through the entire book.

When I told her that we were going to make a pigeon mask, she went cuckoo. With just a few simple steps, she was transformed into one of her favorite characters of all time!

Supplies You’ll Need:

Paper Plates (pastel blue or you can paint a white plate)
Construction Paper (white and black)
Yellow Masking Tape or Yellow Construction Paper
Popsicle Stick (light blue or you can paint one)
Light Blue Paint (only if you need to paint the plate or popsicle stick)
Glue Stick
Hot Glue Gun + Glue
Scissors

Let’s Make a Pigeon Mask

  1. If you need to paint the popsicle stick blue, make sure to do that first so it has time to dry.
  2. Using a round object, trace a circle onto the white paper (we used the masking tape)
  3. Using a smaller round object, trace a circle onto the black paper (we used a lid from a spice container)
  4. Glue the black circle on top of the white circle (toward the side, middle). This makes Pigeon’s eye.
  5. Glue the eye onto the middle of your plate.
  6. Cut out 2 strips of yellow masking tape (twice as big as you want it) and fold it in half so that it’s not sticky on either side. If you don’t have yellow masking tape, just cut out two strips of yellow construction paper.
  7. Glue them to the side of the plate and then use your scissors to shape them into Pigeon’s beak.
  8. Cut out a small white rectangle and glue it to your popsicle stick. Make sure to measure to make sure that once it’s glued on, you can still see it.
  9. Take your popsicle stick and hot glue it to the back of the plate. This is Pigeon’s neck and what they will hold their mask with.
  10. Take a black marker and trace around the white circle, the beak and the white rectangle on Pigeon’s neck.

To say that Falynn loves her Pigeon mask would be an understatement. I’ve found her walking around with it more than a few times since we made it last week.  It’s a really easy and inexpensive craft idea that your kids will love, especially if they love Mo Willems books as much as Falynn does! These books are a favorite of ours because of their lighthearted, funny tone. You can’t help but giggle as you read through each book and wondering what Pigeon will want next. Pigeon is so relatable to kids and even to us parents who can relate to every one of Pigeon’s temper tantrums.

By the way, it’s time to get excited for Mo Willems newest Pigeon book, The Pigeon Has to Go to School, which will be in stores on June 2, 2019!  Stay tuned for more on that book! Falynn’s already counting down the days.

Which Mo Willems book is a favorite in your house?
