5 on Friday

I'm linking up with Darci, Natasha, April and Christina for Five on Friday!

 I am in full party-planning mode. Avery's 1st birthday party is two weeks from tomorrow and her actual birthday is this coming Tuesday! How is that even possible? I feel like it was just yesterday that they were placing my sweet newborn on my chest! It's so true what they say, "the days are long but the years are short."

I loved this blog post by Julie at The Girl in the Red Shoes earlier this week. She hit the nail on the head.

 And as if that post above didn't bring on the tears, this video surely will.

This past Saturday was a super nice day, so we spent a majority of the day outside. Jake mowed the grass and did some yard work and the kids and I played with bubbles, took a wagon ride and played in the back yard on our swing set. We were having so much fun that Avery went past nap time and ended up falling asleep in her swing. It was so sweet!

Happy Friday!! 
It will be a fun but fairly busy weekend for me. I have two photo sessions and a birthday party, plus church on Sunday morning. Thankfully I'm off work on Monday, so I plan to spend lots of time with my babies!
