Hello! How was your Memorial Day? Ours was really nice. We went on a family picnic!

We packed a lunch and brought it with us to a new-to-us park and immediately went to explore the playground there.

Murphy hasn’t felt well recently, so I kept him company at our picnic spot while I watched Mal and Quinn play.


A little while later, it was time for lunch. I packed ham and cheese sandwiches, potato salad, chips, apples, and a couple of cans of Nestle Pure Life Exotics (Mango Peach Pineapple flavor).

While we ate lunch, we listened to music on my new Bluetooth rechargeable speaker, which is a super cool item to own. It was so easy to use and worked so well. I am pumped to have one of these for the summer!

Quinn’s lunch started with a bottle.

And then he ate a bunch of potato salad, which he absolutely loved.

In fact, he loved it so much, he crawled on top of Mal because he wasn’t feeding it to him fast enough. Haha!

After we finished eating, Quinn practiced walking for a little bit and then we headed home.

It was such a nice way to spend the afternoon. I love hanging out and relaxing with my boys so much. (They are quite adorable.)

Giveaway time! One lucky CNC reader will win (1) “Exotic Escape Kit” tailored to one of the Nestle Pure Life Exotics sparkling water flavors (valued at $500).

I recently received an “Exotic Escape Kit” with all sorts of fun summertime things inside, including Nestle Pure Life Exotics unsweetened sparkling water. It’s made with flavorful, all-natural exotic fruit flavors, like Mango Peach Pineapple, Key Lime, Strawberry Dragonfruit, and Tangerine. It’s zero-calorie and made with no artificial colors or sweeteners, and it’s an awesome alternative for those looking to swap out soda and other sugary beverages or simply want a refreshing and flavorful option to stay hydrated. The kit also included a bunch of really cool items (Ray Ban sunglasses, Kate Spade cooler tote, iTunes gift card, Bluetooth speaker, COOLA Sunscreen, Tommy Bahama scarf) that one lucky CNC reader will win, so be sure to enter below!


I ended up giving the Ray Ban sunglasses to Mal because he loved them so much. He’s wearing them in the photos above. Aren’t they quite stylish?


To enter: Just click over the the Nestle Pure Life Exotics website and leave a comment about which flavor you would most like to try. I’ll randomly pick a winner on Friday morning.

Good luck!
