5 on Friday

Today I'm linking up with one of my favorite bloggers, Darci for 5 on Friday!

1. I'm super excited to be off work today and Monday! Yay for a four day weekend. Jackson and I are meeting my mom, my sister and her 2 boys (Landon and Mason) today for a picnic lunch in Forest Park and then we're spending the afternoon at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Its one of my favorite places to visit in St. Louis. I'm sure I'll have lots of pictures for you next week, no doubt!

2. My 5 year blogoversary is next week! I cannot believe I've had this blog for 5 years! I'm so happy I started it and love blogging for so many reasons, (all of which I plan to post about next week). I'm also looking into a small give-away. More details to follow!

3. It was eight years ago this past Monday, that we added our first baby to our family. A sweet and adorable, blonde little puppy we named Libby! She is so sweet and we love her so much! 

4. Jake brought this big triceratops home for Jackson last week. He got it from a co-worker whose kids outgrew it. I thought for sure Jackson would be scared of it. It roars and moves its head, tail, mouth and eyes. It sleeps and eats. Its really pretty cool. Jackson was a little apprehensive of it at first, but he came around to it pretty quickly and now really likes it. It snores when it sleeps and now Jackson makes a snoring noise sometimes and pretends to sleep like the dinosaur. Its pretty cute.

5. And lastly, I'm sure you've all seen this video, but I just love it! Its such an amazing story of hope in such a desperate and devastating disaster. Praying for all of those in Moore, OK!

I hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend!
