Sunday Drivin'

Thursday, March 24, 2016

Each weekend, we have Sunday dinner with my in-laws. They graciously host us, cook a delicious meal, entertain the kids, and subsequently do the dishes and provide a lunch of leftovers for Monday. It's a perfect time to relax, hang out, and catch up before a new week begins. With the extra daylight and warmer temps, the ever-so-popular Jeep got revved up for some Sunday drivin'.
 Tyson was such a gentleman and drove his sister up to the park, making sure to pull her door closed each time she pushed it open and reminding her, 'hold on, Harper!' I was particularly impressed with his steering skills!!
If looks could kill, this little sweet-tart would take out a majority of those who cross her path. But as soon as she locks eyes with us, her face lights up, and that smile is equally heart-warming!!
This 'kid' is our VIP ticket to the roller coaster of parenting; now with 3.5 years experience, we're still/continually trying to figure out how to be the best parents we can be. Some days are a breeze, while others I wish I could call in professional help to tell me what. I'm. doing. wrong?! However, we can always count on his good heart, smiles, and giggles (and hugs and snuggles) to make all those insecurities disappear. 
Sunday drivin', and park-in', at it's finest.

  1. Those are adorable!! Aria drove her little car all by herself with legit steering yesterday (on snapchat), and I was super impressed haha. I wonder if she could manage a straight line down the sidewalk, although I kind of doubt that just yet...maybe soon. He is such a good driver and a little gentleman! Love it.

  3. I love that you have Sunday suppers with your in-laws!! My Great Grandma used to host a lunch at her house every Sunday. I truly miss her and those days. That’s a tradition I want to carry on when my kid(s) are older. I hope they like me enough to want to come back every Sunday! Haha. What a cute jeep! He looks so serious driving it. Great pictures of your sweet littles! That last one melts me. Can’t you just picture that one as him as a 16-17 year old driver?

  7. Sunday dinner with family. So very nice!! I come from a large family so living away from everyone, while it has it's perks, is quite difficult at times. Sunday dinners were always huge growing up. I love that you and your family get to experience this! And oh my goodness, I haven't realized how much the kiddos favor each other before now...maybe it is just in these pictures but it's so cute!

  9. Family time is the best!!! 3.5 was the hardest age for us with Kinsey but as fast and hard as it came on, it also taught me many parenting lessons that I otherwise never would have learned. Such cuties, Laureen!
