Weekly Recap {3.27.17}

Happy 1st day of our Spring Break!! The weather is suppose to be pretty crappy all week, but we are going to make the best of it.

Today we are heading to the library for a magic show which should be a lot of fun!

Here's a look back at our week

We bundled up and went on a bike ride and half way through Ella had to stop and call her Grandma - this girl seriously cracks me up on the daily!!

Last week was free ice cream at Dairy Queen in honor of the first day of Spring. Even though the weather wasn't very Spring-like we of course had to take advantage! As soon as Brayden came home and did his homework we headed out. They were so happy when we pulled up because I didn't tell them where we were going :)

We busted out the roller coaster too and the kids were having a blast on it!

Every night when we put Avery to bed she always demands we lay with her - so I cram myself into her crib with her but it's not as bad as when Rick does it. I need to get a picture of that :)

I went to check on Ella one night before I headed to bed only to find her grasping onto to her bow and arrow while she slept. 

We went to the library for story time/craft time and the girls made kaleidoscopes - they always have so much at this library


 I snapped this pic last week because Avery just looks so darn big sitting there on our bed with her knees up drawing. I think it's safe to say she is no longer a baby (even though we still call her one!)

Ella had a field trip at a local farm - here she is with her bestie!

The kids always argue who gets to cross the day off on all our calendars. Here Avery is doing it but of course Patrolman Brayden is right behind her to tell her she is doing it wrong LOL

Friday was gorgeous so after speech we ran some errands then headed to the park

Later on we made a cake for my Mom's birthday

And later on I took Brayden & Ella to the park for a little while Avery was still napping and Rick hung at home.

Then we headed out for a night with some friends. We ate delicious food and had way too much fun!

Saturday was my Mom's birthday and my sister hosted at her house. She made an amazing bloody mary bar that I took full advantage of!

The kids were so funny when my Mom was opening the gifts, all of them were just opening them so fast and just tossing them at her LOL They were excited for sure

My nephew has a little drum set and Ella was in heaven. Rick already said no to getting one LOL


We didn't get home until almost 8 and put the kids to bed then me and Rick hung out watching the new Bill Burr stand up on Netflix, but we passed out halfway through, ha ha.

Sunday I went to breakfast with my Mom/Aunts/Cousins and it was so fun! Then my Mom and I ran some errands and later I went grocery shopping - it was a filled day for sure and I am so happy to be relaxing right now (Sunday night as I type this)

I feel like I'm going to need lots of caffeine to get through this week but I'm ready! Enjoy your day!

*Oh and one more thing - today is the last day for my little giveaway over on my Facebook Group - We Heart Deals. I would be so appreciative if you would join the group and of course be sure to enter!

*linking up with B Loved Boston & The Sirois Family


  1. My sister and BIL have a drum set & I'm with Rick on that one...better not to have one LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Whew, great and busy weekend! Happy belated to your mama! My boys always just want me to lay with them too, sometimes I'd fall asleep in a be 1 o'clock in the morning, ha ha. Here's to a strong cup of Joe!

  3. What a great week Liz! I am so excited,and a bit jealous, for your spring break. I hated that we ended up bumping ours but I really think it was for the best and maybe by the time it gets here the clutter from purging will be gone and my house will be "normal". Anyways enjoy your break and take lots of pictures!

  4. Awe! What a great weekend! thank you for linking up with us!
    I love that you have an Ella! I have an Ella, as well!

  5. Hope you all have a great Spring Break. We are on break too and have so much planned. I am really looking forward to playing and visiting with friends.

  6. I need caffeine right now! lol. Looks like you had a good week. I laughed at patrolman Brayden - Zachary is always telling his siblings they're doing things wrong!

  7. I can't believe that we missed the free ice cream at DQ! I'm surprised B didn't know about it!! He is obsessed with that place!

  8. What fun you had this weekend! I always love checking on my kids at night, you just never know what you might find! The weather is supposed to be yucky here all week too. I miss the sun! Your library sounds fun too. They are such a great place to go with kids! xoxo ERIN

  9. Oh my gosh, that picture of "policeman" Brayden with the calendar is sooo funny! What a sweet little man! Looks like such a nice weekend... that weather was such a freaking tease though! I already miss that sunshine. How nice that you made a cake for your mom!

  10. Happy spring break! I hope your first day was a good one and maybe the weather will come around. I feel like it's always changing over here. Haha Ella sleeping with her bow and arrow reminds me of A, he's always taking something to bed with him. Eric actually plays the drums but we have them packed away (not because of the noise but because of the space) for the time being. I used to love watching A bang on them. Ella looks like she was loving them! Beautifully Candid

  11. Cash is on spring break this week, too & we spent our morning at the library yesterday. :) I had no idea that you ran a deals fb page! Can't wait to follow along!

  12. What a fun and busy week for you! I hope your first day of Spring Break went well! XOXO

  13. We cross the days off on the calendar each evening as well. Trying to teach the girls about days of the week. You have been very busy, but it looks like a lot of fun was had. I am sad I missed the Dairy Queen free ice cream day. I love a good blizzard there.
