The Adventure Starts Here: Five on Good Friday

Five on Good Friday

Happy Good Friday!  I've been looking forward to this Friday all week.  Chris was away in Seattle for business and landed this morning (he took the red eye home).  Noah's cousins arrived last night, so Chris is taking the day off and we hope to do some pretty fun stuff with the four kids.  And of course, I'm looking forward to the Easter weekend.  I wish you all a wonderful holiday weekend :)  


In case you missed it, here's a recap of this week's posts.  And in case you missed our Easter Basket Link Up, don't worry, because there's still time... the link up will be open until Wednesday, March 30th!  


Baseball season is about to begin, and while I personally don't get excited for the sport, I love any excuse to dress Noah up.  Chris is a huge Mets fan and loves to show his team pride with Noah :)  Some of my favorite blogging friends are hosting an Opening Day Link Up from April 4 - 10!  Here's your chance to show off some team pride by sharing a photo of your loved ones in your favorite team's apparel :)  Don't forget to tag your social media photos with #hoorayitsopeningday !  

Chris and Noah from last year :)


We are in full Easter mode this week!  Being that there was only 10 days between St. Patrick's Day and Easter this year, I feel totally rushed!  I made sure Noah wore his bunny shirts nonstop this week and will continue to do so this weekend... I made sure to do his laundry last night!  And on a side note, I love that he's started wearing his hair spiked again.  Each day I ask him if he wants it up or down.  He either says "up like Ryder" or "down like Rubble"... who knew Rubble wore his hair down?

Noah's class had an Easter party yesterday.  Each parent sent in 6 eggs filled with treats for their kid to find in an egg hunt.  I filled Noah's with a bunch of his favorites...

I was also in charge of the healthy snack this week.  And since they were having their Easter party, I decided to send in some baby carrots (because bunnies love carrots) and some flower shaped cucumbers (because they are just so spring like and cute!).  I know Noah loves both veggies, so I hope the other kids did as well... if not I'm sure they enjoyed the Easter dessert ;)


I'm so excited that Noah's cousins are visiting this weekend for Easter!  I hope to have lots of fun activities to blog about next week!  We haven't seen them since Christmas, but we did get some St. Patrick's Day photos texted to us last week :)

Today, I'm linking up with The Farmer's Wife and September Farm for "Oh Hey Friday" and with A. Liz Adventures for "Five on Friday"!

  1. I felt rushed too. It feels too early this year. Love Noah in his bunny shirts and the hair kills me. Adorable. Can't wait to see him in his opening day gear. My kids have nothing. Oops! Have so much fun with your family this weekend. I'm sure Noah is beside himself to have his cousins in town.

  2. Those shirts are super cute! Love the fun bunny snacks for school, what a cute idea :)

  3. Great job on the healthy snack! I'm hoping to take part in the opening day link up!

  4. down like rubble lol! Paw Patrol very relatable apparently.

  5. Good job on the snack the petite carrots are so worth it. I love them so much more than the regular baby carrots. That bunny shirt cracks me up, adorable. Hope your week is off to a good start.
