Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful and restful weekend! 

The weather here in Columbus was just perfect. It was one of those cool and slightly breezy days you long for after a row of scorching summer days. So, of course, we did our best to take full advantage of the gorgeous weather with a trip to the zoo, park, lake, and a stroll through downtown. 

PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE GANACHE CAKE

This Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake is made with layers of moist vanilla cake, peanut butter frosting and chopped Reese’s. It is incredibly rich and delicious! Definitely a must for the peanut butter lover in your life!

Hilarious Party Board Games for the Family!

A special thanks to my friends at Goliath Games for sponsoring today's conversation!
We are always looking for ways to keep the kids entertained and playing nicely with each other, especially in the Summer when the days feel eternal, instead of dozing off to a screen.  

One of our all-time favorite pastimes, that never fails to bring a smile or get a laugh out of us is playing one of the hilarious board games from Goliath Games. Since we are in a teeny apartment, we opted for a change of scenery, in the form of our outdoor lounge space. It was the perfect way for us to relax and get some beautiful sunshine in the process!

An unforgettable day at the ZOO!

Since moving here, a couple weeks ago, we've gone to the Columbus zoo a handful of times, each time only seeing a small portion of it because it's so expansive. On our latest trip we got to ride camels + check-off something from our bucket-lists that is truly unforgettable!

Dreamy Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls have become quite the rage over the last few years, and for good reason! They are incredibly fresh, satisfying and nutrient dense- just what every momma needs to energize her day!
I've been a fan of smoothie bowls ever since I tried one of Hawaii's famous Acai bowls (just a little over five years ago). I remember right when I got back to the states, rushing over to Whole Foods to see if I could get my hands on Acai berries to recreate their smoothie bowl at home. Thankfully, I was able to find Acai sorbet, which helped to kickstart my love-affair with smoothie bowls.

Ways to Celebrate a Christ Centered Easter

Every Easter we attempt to help teach our children that Easter is not about the Easter bunny but instead it's about the death and resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. 

There are so many fun, simple and beautiful things we can do with our families to celebrate the real meaning of Easter.

To help you develop your own Christ-centered Easter traditions, here are some activities that we have enjoyed doing as a family:

Winter Fun

 The only time I can appreciate the cold weather during the winter months is when we get enough snow that its useful and we can go snowboarding or have a snowball fight. Anyone else detest the freezing temps?

We have an Author!

So at the beginning of the year, Kyle told the girls about a writing contest for children in our area that was being sponsored by PBS KIDS Writers & Illustrators and our Public Library.
