It’s time for 3 Things Thursday! And this week I’m sharing my three things from San Diego as we’re on a family vacation.
1. Keyan turns 5
Hands down, Keyan’s 5th birthday is the highlight of my week. A can’t believe how he’s gone from being a little baby to this amazing boy! And 5 is a really big one. He’s no longer a toddler, he officially starts kindergarten in September and he can even swim by himself now. I could probably go on for a while about how awesome this kid is, but that’s why I put his birthday in #3ThingsThurs so it’s not a whole post that’s just mommy gushing 🙂
2. African Safari
It’s official, I’ve added an African Safari to my life’s bucket list! After going to San Diego’s Zoo Safari Park and having a great experience, I want to do the real thing one day. And it’s perfect because I also want to visit Kenya where my parents where born and grew up so I can have a two-in-one deal!
Is our family the only one who had never made s’mores before?! Our hotel was having a s’mores night at the fire pits near the pool, so we all decided to go check it out since none of us have ever eaten them. We’ve roasted marshmelows before, but that’s about it. When we got there, we saw marshmellows, chocolate, graham crackers and skewers, so we took a little bit of everything and then just looked at each other. When someone else came by, we had to ask what to do. He was incredulous when he found out we had never made smores before. Once we found out the technique, we roasted our marshmellows and then created our gooie little sandwiches. And wow, that was one sweet treat!
That’s my things this week. Make sure to check out my #3ThingsThurs co-hosts, Raj from Pink Chai Living and Nisha from Love Laugh Mirch for their awesome posts. We also want you to link up with us!
