Jensey Loves Quinn, Kinley, and Mari! (Part II)

11th June 2016

Make sure you’ve read part I of our Oregon trip here!

My brother and Nate went for a before sunrise snowshoe hike to grab some gorgeous photos. I don’t know what they hiked up exactly… More than a hill but not quite a mountain so whatever that’s called? :) Either way, here are some pretty phooooootos! <3

I love this one so much- Look at all the ski swigglies! Yes, that’s the technical term, fyi.

I’m pretty sure this is the moment he figured out parenting. <3

Going through my DisneyRoots Instagram with Kinley and learning who everyone is. All photos of Rapunzel were “Mommy,” and every time she saw Wendy she thought it was me. I won’t say Kinley is my favorite, but I won’t deny it, either. ;)

Loved this local restaurant they go to with a play room attached to the main dining area. We were able to eat right there and watch them- More restaurants need this!

So, right before our trip, my best friend Jessie told me that she found a photographer Little People that looks just like me! This thing even dresses like me, wears sunglasses on her head, and holds her camera like me! It’s hilarious!! Jessie was so sweet and sent one for Quinn and Kinley. They love taking “Auntie Jensey” everywhere and yelling things like “Don’t flush Auntie Jensey down the toilet!” and “Stop biting Auntie Jensey!”

This is Auntie Jensey monitoring dinner time. :)

Fact we learned while babysitting: Frozen veggies and first-time ever viewings of Aladdin make all boo boos better!

I try to hand sew something special for every niece and nephew when they’re born, and this is what I made for Miss Emma. I loved seeing her play on it! :)

The second best thing in all of Oregon to my family is Dutch Bros Coffee, mainly the location next to my brother and sister-in-law’s place. These three make every day better! And they’ve even named a coffee after my brother. :)

Kinley, please never, ever change the way you eat. <3

Goodbyes are never fun, but especially not on a rainy day. :( We love you, family!!

Jensey Loves Quinn, Kinley, and Mari! (Part I)

4th June 2016

Now that we’re Florida residents again, we require one “cold” trip a year. I need to see some snow. Yearly. <3 This year’s trip happened because we needed to come see our newest beautiful niece, Mari Emma. (Or #CalimariEmma if you follow me on Instagram!)

She was born around Thanksgiving and the rest of my family was able to make trips sooner, but I’m just glad we got to see her while she was still teeeeeeny tiny. Like, pull-at-my-ovaries tiny if you know what I mean. Mari is the youngest of my brother’s 3-under-3, so she’s sure to be the strongest of all of ’em. It was so cute seeing Quinn and Kinley take to big sibling-hood and see how much they absolutely adore her. Sometimes a little too much (I’m looking at you, Kinley!)

Our trip to Oregon kicked off our three city “snow trip,” as we dubbed it. Here’s part one of this very special week! <3
