Spencer here. First blog posts can be nerve wracking. I have so much I want to write about and share, but don’t know what to start with. I thought an introduction was a good start.
Partner + baby daddy: Kyle Hoisington
Kiddos: Talon + Cohen
I’m a working mom: Spa Director + independent photographer + social media/bookkeeper for HoisBoys Lawn Co. I’m starting this blog because it’s been a dream of mine for quite some time. I love writing, it’s a good way for me to get everything out. I feel better after writing.
Things I love to do when I’m with my boys:
zoo trips + target sprees + blanket forts + kid friendly movie at the theater + Rain Boot parties outside + dirt fights + hide&seek + cooking&baking + walks to the park + road trips to the beach + cuddle time on Sunday’s + Freddy’s ice cream
Things I love to do without kids:
Target sprees + non-kid friendly movie at the theater + coffee + a new book + bachelor/bachelorette/bachelor in paradise + wine or margarita time + d.i.y + Pinterest + cooking&baking with wine + girl time with wine + concerts + driving with the music up&singing out of key + bonfires + date night with my love + eating without interruptions
We just got back from a family trip to South Carolina! Boy, did I want to stay there forever on the beach. Talon cried when we left – he did not want to come home. Traveling with kids is not for the faint of heart. The plane ride was cake… It was the hour and half drive from the airport to the beach that was another story. Crying baby and a bored toddler with the hands over their ears; “are we there yet?” Every 2 minutes. Roll the windows down, music up + Advil & tune out. Once we got there, the only trip we made was to the grocery store, which is 5 minutes down the road.
Here are some pictures from our lovely 7 day stay at Litchfield Beach on Pawleys Island…
Things that I’ll remember forever from this trip:
Talon boogie boarding like a pro + Cohen dipping in the ocean + catching jellyfish + Talon and Kyle going out on the sailboat with my uncle + biking with my sis, Kyle with Cohen hitching a ride + hammock naps with both boys + Talon and Cohen swinging side by side + Cohen copying everything Talon and Kyle does + bike ride with Cohen and my mom + playing cards with my family + my uncle and Talon making a sand car + Talons first interaction with a parrot + star gazing on the rooftop with Kyle for my birthday + Cohen inhaling snow cones and ice cream + Krispy Kreme donuts + Cohen’s first birthday on the porch
Things I’d rather forget:
Talons first jellyfish sting + losing my sisters new hat kayaking out into ocean + Flipping over in the kayak + Kyle getting beat up by his kayak + Cohen falling cheek first onto the concrete + Talons poopy swim diaper + running out of Krispy Kreme donuts + running out honey goat cheese + getting lost trying to find a Starbucks because my phone died + leaving the beach
