Weekend goodness - glamping, round 2

This past weekend we headed down south to Santa Cruz for another glamping experience. Last year we took the same trip with these friends from my mothers group/church, and I'm thinking it should be an annual trip.

The adults got to hang out, the kids had a blast playing non stop - with a giant bouncy pillow, sandpit, mini golf, pool, playground & train, the KOA is a kids dream.

On our second night, we enjoyed a potluck feast. The spread was pretty amazing!

And we finally got some cute group pictures of our kiddos. Last year we tried to make this happen and it was disastrous.

Love these kiddos, and their parents too - I'm so thankful for our little village.

Out of the mouth of babes {Oliver, 3 years}

Quotes I don't want to forget - Mr Oliver at 3 years old...

When I called him baby: no, Mummy. I not a baby. I'm a man!

Talking about future sleeping arrangements: when I grow bigger, I can have a bunk bed. And Daddy can build it. And Austin can sleep on the top. And I will sleep on the bottom.

Whenever he 'baby talks' to Austin, right in his face: babybabybaby. babyaustin. babyaustin. babybabybaby.

When a street sweeper drove down our street: the street sweeper is making our street clean! Now wois anne and hudson can drive their big truck down our street.

Making grand plans for him & Austin: look Mummy! He's growing really really bigger already! Now he can play with me. We can play trains together. And cars!

Whenever he puts a toy anywhere near Austin: look Mummy! I'M SHARING!

When some Noonday arrived in the mail: oooooh, dat's so cool. It's MY special necklace.

Every time Austin falls asleep in the car: BABYAUSTIN! It's WAKE UP TIME!!! RAWWWWWRRRRRR!!!

When his trampoline was half constructed and I asked him if he knew what it was: it's a tent shade.

When he's being gassy and won't say pardon me: heheh. Dat was Austin's bottom! Poooooey!

And my all time favourite...

When leaning in to give me a hug: you smell like grown up.

RAWR! Mr Oliver is 3!!!

This past weekend, our big boy turned THREE! He was super excited about his birthday this year, starting the day at 6.15am asking for presents ;-) Just like last year, we hid his presents over the house. He had fun looking for them - and once he was finished, he told Mitch and I to go find our presents now... Funny boy :-)

I had been undecided for months as to what to do for his party this year. I started planning out another big party, but honestly - the thought of so many people, the decorating, all the preparation was stressing me out. What I really wanted was just to do a small family party, but seeing as our family is on the other side of the globe, we got together with some of our surrogate family instead. It was perfect. Just a handful of Ollie's closest buddies, a BBQ dinner, pinata & cake; low key & not too overwhelming for the birthday boy.

The Birthday Month

In the lead up to Oliver's 1st Birthday, I did a photo a day here on my blog: The Birthday Month. For his second birthday it moved to Instagram, and this year was the same:

Thankfully my big boy doesn't mind having his photo taken :-)
