We’re all starting to experience the imaginative play stages for our oldest boys and it is so sweet to witness.

Check them out, they are impeccably made and oh so sweet.

Being active seems to come so naturally with warm temperatures, doesn’t it? This winter we’ve brainstormed ideas for a little indoor exertion! We’ve quickly found as mothers of boys that all you need are four walls, a few balls, and a little room to be destructive. If you have a garage, church gym, or in our special case a Crossfit Hyperion, you have a day of fun ahead! We focused on using household items for our obstacle course, to ensure an easy time replicating it at home. You’re going to want to try this with your little ones, it was an … Read more
It’s funny how some content for Small Fry gets planned days, weeks, even months in advance, and then sometimes we’re scrambling to recreate a post after the magic already happened. This is one of those posts! Jenna had her niece over for a sleep-over and decided to make it a little extra special.
