Antique Piano adventure

A couple of weeks ago a friend sent me a message about a piano their parents were selling. We weren't in the market for a new piano, but thought sure, an antique piano would be great! 

We didn't put much thought into it... I rented a truck, my husband called my brother inlaw and the 3 of us went to pick up this piano.. ha!  On our way there I began looking at YouTube videos about moving a piano :/ something I should have did during the week, not on the way there. I was even going to bring the kids! Good thing I dropped them off to my sister last minute! 

I'll get back to that in a bit - it was an old childhood friends. We lived next door to each other about 25 years ago. It was so nice seeing them and catching up. Such lovely, welcoming people. They were happy the piano was going to someone they knew. We were happy they thought of us.

Ok back to the piano adventure. Ugh it was heavy. I should have hired a piano mover... but I had 2 strong guys haha 

It was tough getting it in the truck, a lot of, try this, no try that, how about this.. you get it.. ha!.. that was part one. Then part 2... getting it in our house. We had to back up over the grass, yikes. 


The guys built a ramp. Nice and sturdy. 

Good thing we had 2 little trolly things (no idea what they are called) it helped roll that heavy piano! 

These guys can be professional piano movers now! They were awesome! 





 

Our piano teacher loved it, when he saw it yesterday. We need to get it tuned but it's a great piece. I love this way it looks in my hallway. 



 I'm thinking a big clock over top of it.

We have some big art already in the area
So I think a clock would add something different.


 


 That evening we couldn't stop talking about the piano adventure. It took us all afternoon. It was fun and a story we will never forget. I can't wait for little K to begin playing on it! 




 
 
 
I still need to research a little more on the piano. It's old! I'm sure it has some history!

Long weekend fun!

Yay long weekends! This long weekend was jammed packed with fun events! 

The piles of laundry prove it ha!

Friday my sister took the day off work and we took the kids to the Zoo!

I fit another car seat in my car so we could travel together! The kids loved this! 




It was a hot day! So after walking around seeing the animals we went to the splash pad they had there.




Baby Mikey loved seeing the animals. He was so good, and even took a nice long nap! 

Both kids napped on the way home and we waited for daddy to come home. We then headed back out for a movie night! 
A drive in movie that is! 
We watched the secret life of pets. Ha! Really cute movie.
We got popcorn and snacks! Mr K also enjoyed the playground they had there.


And we got all cozy to watch the movie! 
Blankets, chairs.. We forgot our pillows tho. I changed the kids to their pj's when the movie started and we snuggled up in the trunk of the car to watch. 
We've been many times with the kids and we love this little tradition we've made. 


Saturday night was a night out for this mama! My cousins stagette!
See that purse- That's my new Kate spade, early birthday gift :) I love it!

Ok back to the night out. We had a blast celebrating my cousins stagette. 

We had way to much fun driving to dinner blasting Drake. 

We played stagette games, had a great dinner and danced danced danced! 


Daddy was just fine home with the kiddies. Baby Mikey even took more steps! Much more than he did with me! I'll post on that later! 

I was on just 4 hours of sleep and we had plans for Sunday! 

Yesterday we spent the whole day at a water park!
We rented the cabana to have our own private space. Which came in handy when baby M napped. We had lunch and relaxed too. 


We had so much fun going on water slides and the lazy river. Both kids loved it! We spent the whole day there! 

Today we had more water fun at my uncles annual pool party! 


Always a great time with family. 
Mr K spent the whole time in the water! Even when it rained for 45mins he was still in there! 




We are all pooped! My house is upside down from all the in and out this weekend. But I wouldn't change any of it! We made some amazing memories this weekend. 

It's time for bed! All my boys are sound asleep! Good night!

Weekend fun!


Sushi lunch! So fun watching little man concentrate on using chopsticks to pick up 1 pea at a time haha
His favorite at sushi lunch was; edamame, veggie rice, avocado/cucumber rolls, tempura crab and veggies, and miso soup! Yum! 

We also had a cousins 2nd birthday party which was a blast for the kids. 



Little K loves being with all his cousins. He asks for them all daily! We just don't get to see eachother enough, but when we do, there's lasting memories of fun and warm love. 

Of course little k ran so fast to blow out those candles. Oh boy. 

And at the end of the night, pj's on and story time from Tia. 


Total cuteness!

Another blog gap!

Again, it's been a couple weeks since I blogged! I miss blogging! I tried to give myself different blog goals to follow too, but nope. Weeks go by and I don't blog.

Summer is here finally and the weather is awesome!

Family fun!

Booty bootcamp workout!

I love the bootcamp class I joined. There are about 15 girls in the class. All different shapes and sizes and all there for the same reason. To break a sweat! And feel great about it! 

(Pinterest) 

Yesterday was focus on your booty Monday! Let's just say I can barely walk today! 

On the weekend I bought new gear. Sports bra, workout tights, tshirts and runners. I found that my Nike runners were causing me to get shin splits. There's a lot of jumping in that class haha so the new addias I bought have more cushion and feel much better! 


It's April but it's cold and windy here! 
So today I decided it was still ok to wear black tights to work. I think I have till May 1st ha!

What I wore to work:
Skirt:Tristan. Blouse with beads, can't see in picture: Mexx. Tights:Spanx. Blazer: Suzy sheir. Shoes: Guess

What I wore in the pm. 

Jacket: Guess. Jeans: Mavi.
Shoes: MK 

Again, it's still so chilly. So spring jackets are a must, along with a scarf and an umbrella haha.

Even with the chilly weather we still make it to the park. Enjoying how close the park is to us right now before we move! 


Love this sweet boy soo much!
