Kids Come to Visit

Hello there!  Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday where I talk about something I'm thinking out loud about and invite you to link up and do the same.

Today I'm thinking about the current situation happening at our house - our five-year-old niece and nephew are visiting for a few days.  I have been anxiously awaiting their visit for the last couple of weeks and am thrilled that it's finally here!  Our house has a completely different feel and I'm going to soak up every minute of the giggles, the messes, and all the craziness that two five-year-olds bring.

We kicked off their first breakfast by making rainbow waffles.  It did take a bit more effort to mix all the colors into the batter, but it was so worth it!

I'm so grateful for the chalkboard tablecloth a friend gave me years ago!  It's spread across the kitchen table and the kids love drawing on it while I'm cooking.  It's a great way to have them in the same room with me when I'm working on getting a meal prepared.  If you don't have one of these babies, I highly recommend adding one to your belongings.  

Another thing we are enjoying is playing Connect 4.  I had kind of forgotten how fun that game was to play with the kiddos.  Liam brought his from home and we've played numerous games already in their short time here.   

We braved the heatwave today and visited Grant's Farm.  Tomorrow is the Zoo.  The kids were troupers today and I suspect they will be tomorrow too.   Regardless of the weather, I'm loving making memories with them and will be thinking about it for years to come!

So that's what I'm thinking out loud about today.  What's on your mind?  Link up and share!
