our day in pictures

I love when other bloggers post what they do throughout the day because I am kind of nosy and think it's fun. Of course the day I planned on recording everything we had a very different type of day than usual.  My sister Michelle was home from work and nursing school so with extra hands in tow we ventured out more than usual. It truly amazes me how God orchestrates our lives.  Almost every little aspect was out of the norm and it was exactly what our family needed. Tomorrow we will spend the day at home, minus going to the gym after Max's morning nap and if you know me at all you know much I thrive off of order ;)

Bath time for the boys is our favorite time of the day, who doesn't love the smell of a clean baby?

Like I said today truly was a different day than usual.  Nick, Michelle, Calvin, and I played frisbee in the cul de sac for an hour. It was so much fun and a great work out

Since I put Max to bed Nick puts Calvin down and does catechism with him.

Our night ended with a glass of wine and catching up on the news. I know we won't be living with family forever but we are soaking up all of the special memories we get to make with my mom and sister. One of the best parts of our life right now is that we get to share it with them and we are so thankful for their help and support. We are like the modern day Full House, only louder (we are Italian). 

What is your favorite part of your day? Do you ever have spontaneous days out of the blue? What will you be doing this weekend?
