Weekly Recap {5.22.17}

Another week down and only 2 more left for Brayden until school is out officially for summer!! Let me tell you, he is ready!

Here's a look at our week - it was a good one!

Monday I took the girls the new park in town again and they had a blast

Tuesday was Miss A's music class while Ella was in preschool. We had fun but I think Avery is over the class. She was loving it for a while but now she seems to want to leave pretty much right after we get there. She is way too busy to be bothered with a structured class LOL

At night we all went to get ice cream because it was GORGEOUS!

Wednesday we headed to the mall to do some exchanges I've been putting off forever. The girls did pretty well in Macy's and then they played in the play area for a little.

At night Brayden had a baseball game. I thought I was being smart by showering the girls before we went, only to get there and realize it was a complete dust/dirt storm from the wind. Our hair was so knotty by the time we left. But, the game was good and Brayden was looking awesome pitching!! He even got the game ball.

Thursday was Ella's 3yr preschool graduation! Ah my little one is getting so big. I plan on doing a whole post on this for her

Rick went golfing after work so I was on solo parenting duty, which resulted in popsicles before dinner. Sometimes you just have to say yes, am I right?


Friday was Speech then grocery shopping.  Originally, a couple of weeks ago me and Rick had talked about taking the kids to the zoo in the afternoon (him taking a half day and pulling Brayden from school to come with) but when we saw the weather was terrible we decided that was off.  That morning I sent Brayden to school like any other day and then the hubs still decided to take a half day and suggested we go take the kids somewhere for some inside fun.  So he went and picked up Brayden around noon (who had NO idea this was happening) and I told the girls to get ready and get in the car. I didn't tell them where we were going and I hopped in the passenger side and they kept asking why I wasn't driving. 2 minutes later the hubs and Brayden got home and hopped in and the kids were all SO excited to go have some family fun!

We took them to this fun indoor play place I've been wanting to check out. I hear it gets insane on weekends and breaks so going on a Friday afternoon was perfect. Adults got to go on lots of the stuff too and there was a separate room for ball launching, we all had the best time and they were wiped out by the time we left!!


At night Brayden had his buddy's swimming birthday party and I had fun catching up with the Moms

Saturday morning Brayden's game got cancelled due to rain so he got to come with me and the girls to their cousins birthday party. Rick stayed home to work on our bathroom remodel. (it's almost done!!)

After the birthday party we headed home for naps/quiet time and then headed back out for another birthday party around 4. We got home around 7, gave the kids quick showers and all hung out on the couch for a while.


 Sunday we went to a Chocolate Fest a few towns over and had so much fun!! We ate chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate covered bacon and chocolate covered pretzels along with cookies, some mexican food and we stocked up on some old school candy at one of the cute candy shops. It was the perfect morning spent with my favorite people!!



Later in the day Rick worked more on the bathroom, I did cleaning/laundry and played with the kids (aka played a never ending game of Chutes & Ladders!) I got to work on the new footprint flip flop plate I'm making to hang up for summer and there was some relaxing in there too. It was quite the weekend, that's for sure!
