The weekend is here! Before I get too excited about the fun that’s ahead, let me stop and tell you about last weekend. We took a little trip to Beaver Creek, just under two hours from Denver, tucked away in the mountains. It was wonderful to get away! The resort was kid-friendly, with a park and (free) children’s museum. Oh, and the scenery is not too shabby either 😉 It was a good weekend making new memories.Now, for this weekend and the week ahead, Quinn and I are traveling to the Black Hills to join family for another vacation! This is the summer of vacations and I am not complaining. It’s going to be awesome!!!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Let’s start it off with Friday Favorites! Yay!

Favorite Toddler Tamer: How I Teach My Toddler to Sit Still. So good. Quinn and I have been designating 20-30 minutes each day this week to sitting still during story time. She still wiggles around quite a bit, but I think there’s been some improvement. Hooray for progress!
