Happy Monday, friends! Sorry it's been slow around here lately...I was away most of last week, spending time with my family up in New Jersey, and celebrating my dad's life. On Friday, it was 5 years since he passed away. How we miss him...and can't wait to see him again!
This week's going to be a whirlwind of trying to get a few things done for work and the blog, while cleaning the house, packing, and getting ready for our first ever family vacation - we leave early Saturday morning for the BEACH! I'm stoked!
Uncommon Goods sent me some of my favorite wooden and crocheted toys and I couldn't resist taking them outside and pretending we were on a picnic when I was visiting family in NJ!
It was hysterical watching my 2 year old nephew Judah wrap his mind around the concept of a "pretend" picnic - he was trying to munch on the pita pockets and fruit rattles. And he just adored the fox pillow; he wanted to take a nap with it right there during our picnic. And that puzzle stacker is fantastic - it's a "grow with you" toy and has different levels of difficulty. Isaac knew exactly how it was supposed to work, but Judah was content with simply stacking the pieces every which way, which drove Isaac crazy. Needless to say, we had a blast on our toy picnic! Can't wait to play with these toys with my little Zoe.
Check out the rest of the photos over on the Uncommon Goods blog, and shop the toys here:
