5 on Friday


Happy Happy Friday everyone. We have had tons of rain this week so I hope the weather cooperates as we get ready for our beach vacation!

Let's get to it, shall we?

Yesterday Ben had a field trip with his school to the St. Louis Zoo. The rain held off until we left and it was a great time. Last year the zoo opened a new Sea Lion exhibit with one of those underwater tunnels where the animals swim over you. Such a neat view of these adorable animals!

I've been thinking about these Sweet Tea Lemonade Mojitos ever since Kristin over at Iowa Girl Eats posted the recipe. I think they would be awesome for the beach, don't you?

Ben went to his first overnight church camp at the beginning of the week. It was only one night and two days, but I missed him like crazy. Of course he had tons of fun and didn't miss us one bit. Ben's cousin's church does this camp every year and I think it's so great they have something for the younger kids. Did I mention it was in the woods? I went to church camp growing up, but it was a lot less wilderness-y than this.

I've never met a baby more obsessed with Mexican, specifically salsa, as Jack. Seeing him dip his chip in the salsa is beyond funny. Of course he doesn't actually eat the chip, he just likes the salsa off and then re-dips. You obviously don't want to be stuck having to share the salsa bowl with him.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

  8. I cannot believe he eats the salsa like that! That is too funny. Is it spicy? My son loves to eat pico de gallo, but that's super mild.

    1. It's not too spicy. I can't believe your son eats pico-does it have onions in it? Will he eat those?

  9. That mojito... get in my mouth! yum. Your little one is so precious too.
    Also... I don't know about you, but I've been super bummed about missing five on Friday for the summer. If you're interested my friend Karli {september FARM} and I {the farmer's wife} are starting up a link-up "oh hey, friday!" with the exact same outline and would love for you to join us this Friday! Hope to see you there.
