About Our Gus

Hey Friends. I’m gonna talk a bit about the Allen fam today. Some of you may have noticed that I’m not posting as frequently as I was a few months ago. There’s a good reason for that: our youngest Gus has been taking up a lot of my days. We’ve been taking trips to the zoo, visiting the library, going to IKEA for fun, running errands together, you name it. Now that his older brother is at kindergarten every day it has been nice having some one-on-one time together, and we’ve had a blast. READ MORE

Kindergartener!

You guys, something big happened earlier this week. My eldest son/dude started kindergarten. That is a crazy huge milestone for both him and me. I'm so totally excited for him as he's been way ready to start school. He has one of those funny summertime birthdays and you can choose to send the kids when they are either five or six, we decided to send him when he was six, because it was good to have him around for just another year.

August’s 3rd Birthday

We spent Tuesday celebrating our little guy, Gus' 3rd birthday! If you haven't been keeping track, that's 2 birthdays in less than 2 weeks. We've been busy!

Finn’s 6th Birthday

Guys, I may have been a little MIA this week. We've been busy celebrating the birthday of our young man, Finn. He's six now you guys, that's super old. If you've been coming around this blog for awhile now you probably already know that Finn shares a birthday with his good buddy, Elsa, who turned 5 yesterday (also super old). Elsa and Finn have grown up together, they are the oldest kids of all our friends and thankfully they enjoy each others company because their parents hang out together READ MORE

Puddle Stompin’

Oh man! It downpoured for 15 minutes late yesterday afternoon, and as soon as the rain was over the kids went out to splash in some puddles. Typically they like to truck through the puddles at a million miles an hour trying to make as much sweet spray as they can. They like me to take videos of them so they can see how cool it/they look(s). So I obliged, I ran inside to get my phone because that's how I take videos (duh). I used to use my camera to capture moments, but now I use my always-at-the-ready READ MORE
