Finally Spring! {Five on Friday}

This week I am so thankful that spring is finally here!  And I'm excited to share some of the things I'm looking forward to this spring!

1. Easter Outfits for Baby Prez

I've been thinking about Baby President's Easter outfit for awhile now and drooling over this adorable little outfit from Target. 

Need I say more?


2. Dyeing Easter Eggs

I need to pick up some egg dyeing kits this week so that we can dye some Easter eggs for Baby President's first Easter!  As he gets older, I want to incorporate more activities focused on Jesus's death and resurrection, but this year I'm focused on sensory activities.  Brightly colored Easter eggs should do the trick!  But there are so many options for Easter egg dyeing kits these days.  Of course, I'll go with Paas.  Because duh.

When I was growing up, we had the basic dye colors and if we wanted to do something fancy we drew on the eggs with crayons before dyeing them or used two different colors to make some cool colors like orange or purple!  Now in addition to the classic egg dye kit, we've got pre-made dye cups (cheating if you ask me), sparkling glitter kits (the little girl inside me loves this), tie dye kits (groovy!), sporty egg kits (Go Pokes!), 3-D explosion eggs (what?!), monster egg kits (I think an egg would make a great Mike Wazowski), volcanic eggsplosions, marble egg kits (this might be my favorite), neon Easter eggs, and even color snaps (which look easy and complicated all at the same time).

3. Walks with Baby President

Last summer, we were able to take Baby President to the Farmer's Market a few times!  It was fun to pick out produce there for his baby food.  When Baby Prez was 12 weeks old, we took him for the first time and bought acorn squash for his homemade baby food that week.

Isn't he just adorbs?  

This year, we live close to two great parks!  Baby Prez has lots of swinging at the playground in his future!

4. Moscato

Specifically, Barefoot Moscato.  It's cheap, but so yummy!  Does moscato say spring to anyone else?


5. My Clothesline

Yes, that's right.  My clothesline.  When we moved into this house last fall, one of the things I didn't even think about was the clothesline in the backyard.  But then, our dryer plug didn't fit the outlet, so until we got the adapter, I used the clothesline.  In fact, I even line dried our clothes after we adapted the dryer!  And it's perfect for sunning Baby President's cloth diapers.  

And now, it's getting warm enough to head out to the backyard and pin our clothes up on the line!
