what's for dinner?

We had a full and eventful Memorial week-end!! It was nice spending some of it at home with family, working on a few projects, and then yesterday going on a hike.

One crafty project I've wanted to do for awhile is to make a menu board. I had seen one on pinterest and couldn't wait to make one like it. It called for a magnetic board, but after searching at quite a few places for the right size and not being able to find it, I went with a canvas board. Instead of using magnets, I used velcro. It worked, and I really like how it turned out. I think my kiddos were as excited as me since they are always wondering "what's for dinner?"

I used the prettiest papers from October Afternoon, called The Thrift Shop, and Fly a Kite. I use to do quite a bit of scrapbooking when my girls were little, and it was sure fun working with paper again!! It really gave me the scrapbooking bug, so I might need to pull out my supplies again!!

For Memorial day we hiked almost 10 miles. We went to green mountain, and made it to the summit!! The little ones did so well and it was mainly me trying to keep up with them. :) I love seeing my little ones in nature! It was such an enjoyable day, and we can't wait to go on many more this season!!

At the start of the hike!

The view of Seattle from the summit!

Brothers walking and chatting! They were having quite the conversation about dragons!!

A picnic lunch at the summit!

A few more pictures of our day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful week-end and also enjoyed Memorial Day!


  1. HOW CUTE! the menu board and the hike pictures! you are so good at the scrapping stuff, you should do some more. we really wish we could have joined you on the hike... :( pete worked until about 10pm, but at least he was prepared for today.

  3. Your family is beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Love seeing photos of my grandkiddos, wish I could get to see them more often. All the photos were great but love the one with the littlest boys holding hands and walking together. I believe the girls are getting prettier everyday like their Mama.

  5. The menu board looks wonderful, the papers are lovely. Looks like you had a wonderful hike, can't wait for my two boys to be a bit bigger and able to handle more walking!
