Weekly Recap {7.25.16}

Happy Monday, Friends! How is this the last week of July?! That is pure craziness. Not to mention that 1 week from today my BABY is turning 2!!

But let's not go there just yet. Here's a recap of our last week -

I took the kids to our local nature center/farm.  It was a hot day so I promised ice cream afterwards.

Looking at the stinky pigs

Scavenger Hunt time! This boy LOVES a scavenger hunt!

Ice cream time! 


"Mom, take a picture of all my tattoos" Okkkkkkkkkay!

We went to Legoland with my sister in laws and nieces and nephew and the kids had a blast!! I definitely need to take just Brayden back there because he loved it and could have stayed all day.


Ella was so sad on this ride because she couldn't reach the pedals - silly girl!

My little nephew, so cute!

Ella actually fell asleep on the chair this day, she is so cute when she sleeps :)

My sweet Avery - every day when she gets up from her nap she wants cuddles and I am perfectly fine with this!

Tuesday night the hubs took Ella on a date to the movies and Thursday I took Brayden.  We saw the secret life of pets movie and it was really cute, although I thought they could have done with less talking about killing, it's a kids movie for goodness sake!


Friday we spent the morning at a splash pad then hit up the farmers market. 

The weekend was pretty low key - Saturday the kids swam at my in laws while the boys golfed and we met up with them after. We watched Kung Fu Panda 3 at night then I actually stayed awake the watch How to be Single after the kids went to bed. 2 weekends in a row that I actually stayed up for a movie!

Sunday we relaxed most of the day then I went to to a LuLaRoe party at my SIL's.  Ella spent most of the morning doing puzzles, she is really into them lately!

When I got home from the party we played games, which isn't easy with a toddler running around!

We relaxed the rest of the night and now off to start our week!

*linking up with B Loved Boston for weekending


  1. Oh my gosh - that picture of Brayden with his tattoos has me laughing over here! He's such a cool kid!! What a great idea to do a scavenger hunt at the nature center/farm. I don't why I've never thought to do that at the zoo up here! I can't believe Avery is going to be 2?!?! What?! How can that be?! I'm here for as many virtual "hugs" as you need. This whole growing up thing is tough. I cried myself to sleep twice this past weekend thinking of Henry going to school in the fall. What's wrong with me?!? LOL! We should meet up for a drink...or two...

  2. Love the date you had with your little man - looks like he had a lot of fun! I still want to see the secret life of pets! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. I love your weekly recaps!! You guys have so much fun!!!

  5. Your week sounds like it was a b l a s t! I love the scavenger hunt idea! I'll have to remember that one :)

  6. Did you make up the scavenger hunt yourself? or get it somewhere? I think that would be so fun but I don't know how to put one together!

  7. Ella's sad little face because she can't reach the pedals - LOL. It's so tough being young, isn't it? And I think Olivia has the same shirt that she's wearing in that picture. :o)

    Legoland looks so cool... I think there's one in ATL so we really need to take the kids. Jacob is ALL into Legos now, so I know he would love it.

  8. What a busy week! Movie dates are the best!

  9. Looks like such a fun weekend! I love the tattoo photo, so fun!
