OUR NEW PUP: KONA




I'm so excited to introduce you all to the newest member of our family...miss Kona girl! ๐Ÿ’– She is a goldendoodle and is the sweetest little thing. She weighs around 5 lbs  and is expected to be around 40-45 lbs (which we know can be off and she may be bigger than that!) We picked her up yesterday and she's already fitting into our family seamlessly.

Camden is absolutely smitten with her...he talks to her nonstop and follows her everywhere. He has loved helping feed her + calls for her right when he gets up from sleeping! Grayson has warmed up wonderfully to her as well and enjoys petting her and giving her kisses. Our neighbors actually have a goldendoodle (a much bigger one though) and the boys have always gotten along so well with her and loved her. We have heard nothing but great things about the breed and how good they are with kids!

I honestly haven't been ready to add another dog to our family, after losing Rocky almost a year ago, up until a few months ago. I never wanted to rush into anything so I'm happy that we took our time and waited until we were really sure. I did, though, research breeds like crazy in the mean time just so I would know for when I felt more ready. When we all met her we totally fell in love and had to have her!

As for the name...it has no specific meaning other than it is the one name that Camden kept saying over and over again and that we kept coming back to :) I've also been told it's a Hawaiian name meaning Lady and Kona Coffee (which we LOVE!!)

I apologize in advance for lots of puppy pics coming your way! Oh, and if you have any puppy training tips send them my way...it's been so long since I've done this!!

CURRENTLY {+ SOME NEWS...KINDA...)


Happy Tuesday!

How was your guys' weekend? I stayed up late Sunday night and wrote this whole post and then forgot to post it yesterday...total fail! I do have some pretty exciting news to share (or someone...) later today, so stay tuned to my insta (katiewkrysh) to find out! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I will also share on here, of course, tomorrow!

WATCHING: I recently got sucked into watching The Good Doctor and IT IS SO GOOD.

LOVING: All of these pictures from over the weekend when we took the boys to a haunted maze + Billy's mom and sister came in town to visit. I'm starting to wonder how many pumpkin patches, or fall related festivals, we will go to before Thanksgiving comes and I hope the answer is as many as we can possibly fit in! Camden is on another level at each one he goes to...I'm 99% sure Halloween is his favorite holiday, just like his Daddy. He gets so excited to do all the things that he just runs from one to the other. No pausing. No stopping him. Boy is on a MISSION. The past couple days, when he goes to bed or wakes up from his nap, he's been talking to his stuffed animals about all the Halloween decorations, ha! Grayson is loving being able to walk wherever he wants on his own, so he had fun just going from activity to activity.

This one was different than your typical pumpkin patch as it was held at a nursery...it had a haunted greenhouse (child friendly), multiple bounce houses, farm animals, and they gave each kid a pumpkin to decorate with stickers, a bag of popcorn, and a treat bag with snacks and candy!

Lastly...if there is a basketball hoop, my boys WILL find it. And not leave the area for like 30 minutes...

(my heart swells just looking at this picture๐Ÿ˜)

LOOKING FORWARD TO: We have family pictures scheduled for this weekend and as much as it is stressful (to put it lightly), I always am so happy when we get the pictures back. I got the boys matching plaid shirts and then me and Billy are wearing coordinating colors from their shirt. We haven't had professional pictures taken of the 4 of us ever since Grayson was a few weeks old, so I'm hoping we get some good ones for me to frame!

WEARING: I've gotten some questions about this necklace that I've worn the past couple months>>it's from here and is the blonde marble color and is the x-large size!

LEEDS FARM 2017


I say this every year but going to the pumpkin patch is consistently one of my favorite days with the boys. And if I'm lucky, we can make it to multiple patches before fall is over (the more the better.) There is nothing about it I don't like and this year was another great one!

This was our first time visiting Leeds Farm, which is about 30 minutes from us, and we were blown away by how many activities they had to do + at the gorgeous property! They had farm animals, hayrides, barrel rolls, ziplines, banana bus, straw barn forts and slides, pedal carts, tractors, corn boxes, all kinds of desserts, and kettle corn. Pretty much had ALL of the fall farm fun you'd ever want and more. We easily spent 2 hours here and could've spent longer.

Grayson kept wanting to pick up all the biggest pumpkins..he was fascinated by them and loved touching them. He would try so hard to lift them up! He loved being able to walk around (fully mobile compared to being only a few months old last year!) I think Camden's favorite parts were all the slides and sitting in the tractor. He loved seeing the goats (as usual) though, too. He literally skipped from area to area happy as can be. His zest and excitement for life always amazes me..he wants to do it all and just loves so hard. We were lucky enough to have my BIL and his wife join us, so that was extra special for the boys and us as well. ๐Ÿ˜Š

As you can probably tell from the photo overload, I hope we will be back to Leeds again next year! (Especially to hopefully carry on this new picture tradition to see how much these handsome boys have grown...)


Love these adventurous, always keeping me on my toes, happy boys to pieces.
