Five on Friday

Happy Friday!

We got our Disneyland tickets in the mail this week!! We leave in less than a month and I'm so excited for this trip!

We have a hummingbird feeder on our back deck and they have been so active lately!! I love this time of year when they are very active. I was able to get a few pictures of them up close last week with my camera and telephoto lens. Hummingbirds always remind me of my Grammy and I just love watching them.

Yesterday was Avery's first day at her new gymnastics class. She was so excited and loved every minute of it. I couldn't take her because it was while I was at work but my mom took a few pictures and said that Avery was already asking her if she was going to get to come back right after they left.

After church this past Sunday, we met up with my sister and her family for a fun filled afternoon at Six Flags. We always have so much fun there! I got a picture of the 3 older boys and the little girls, but didn't get a picture of my nephew Emerson. :-( He was there though, having fun with the rest of us.

I finished up a little house project last night and thought I'd share it today. Last month when we took our pictures in the sunflower field, I knew I wanted to do something special with the pictures. They were just too cute not to display. So I thought it would be cute to frame a few of them and then pair them with a "You are my Sunshine" wooden sign that I already had at home and had never found a place to hang it. I used to sing that song to Jackson when he was a baby and I thought it was fitting since we were in a sunflower field. I thought since we've never hung anything in our upstairs hallway, that this would be really cute across from our hall bath (which also has a "you are my sunshine" theme). Once I had the photos framed and layed it all out, I felt like it still needed something else. So I looked online to try and find something else and found this super cute metal sunflower at Hobby Lobby. It wasn't quite the right color yellow to match the sign, so I also bought a can of spray paint and painted it to match! :-)

Have a great weekend!!!
