Sunshine Sunday - hippos, toms, and luaus

There is something I love about seeing my kids enjoy some of the same things I enjoyed when I was a kid.  We were at my mom's the other day and they played an intense round of Hungry, Hungry Hippo with her.  I loved that game.  I love all the toys that never go out of style.



Thursday I woke up really sick with a horrible cold.  My throat hurt like never before and I had to whisper to my boys all morning rather than talking.  I was really grateful that they were patient with me.  I was also really thankful to wake up the next morning feeling normal again.  The body's ability to recover is amazing to me.

The next day I felt so good and then to top it off I got a surprise package in the mail.  My mother-in-law sent me a pair of Toms!  She is super thoughtful, generous, and hip.  I have wanted a pair for so long, but we've been trying not to spend any money.  I was ecstatic and touched.  Here they are.  I almost want to name them I like them so much!


I love the stripes down the side.


Lastly, we had a luau church party yesterday.  I put Baden in his Hawaiian shirt and he wanted me to do his hair.  He also insists on sunglasses when we're outside.  I just couldn't get enough of his look.  He reminded me of an old man on vacation.  We had snow cones and it was a good time.




And....I am super excited about Hair Week starting tomorrow.  See you then!


Thanks for stopping by.

  11. I love this post! Hungry Hungry Hippos was my favorite game as a kid, so fun and loud! And Toms, don't even get me started. I have been wanting a pair forever, and I always end up forgetting about them when I have money ): But the glitter ones have caught my eye, so hopefully I will remember next time!

  12. I love Hungry Hippos SOOO much. When I was in my early 20's went out and bought it for myself to have (again). I was so bummed the marbles were not quite the same. I'm holding on to it for my son and I'm gonna buy some new white marbles for it soon so we can play.

    PS... I was looking at this post last night when my little guy (2 yrs old) walked up. The screen was on one of the pics of Baden and he said, "Awww!" as in "How cute!".
