Weekly Recap {6.19.17}

Oh Monday, you came too quick! Why can't there be 3 days in the weekend? Maybe one day, ha!

We had a really fun week! Monday I took the kids to the Shedd Aquarium with my Mom and we had so much fun! I hadn't been since Brayden was 1 so it was long overdue!


Tuesday Brayden had a camp at our local semi-professional baseball league's field. We did this last year and again it was like 90+ degrees and I felt so bad for him but he actually had so much fun and didn't even complain about the heat (which is crazy)

Wednesday I had to do some things around the house that I've been neglecting (I'm such a terrible housewife in the summertime!!) I laid out tons of white paper and had the kids doddle while I cleaned and then I doodled with them for a while.

Brayden got a creative idea to trace his legs and arms then draw his body/head and put together a flat Brayden. It took him a good amount of time and there was actually some peace in the house LOL

Thursday we had a playdate with some friends at a local library that is pretty much like a museum. They have an actual giant slide inside the kids area! A giant light bright board, tons of pretend play stuff, and so much more! Best of all they have booths you can sit at and eat your lunch while watching your kids play. I love this library!


Brayden worked on some legos later in the day

The hubs came home to me and Miss A laying together - I love her cuddles so much!!

Friday I promised Ella I would take her to one of her favorite parks. She has been wanting to master their little monkey bars and she did it! And she did the big ones too! My girl is so determined and I love that about her.

We also found a little caterpillar and Brayden become super attached. He was practically crying when we had to leave him. I love his soft, sensitive side!

Saturday morning we were back at the ball field (3rd game of the week!) I was able to snap some super cute pics of everyone in our matching shirts too!


We went swimming at my in laws after the game and later on we watched A Dog's Purpose, which was sooooo good I was pretty much crying non stop (both happy and sad tears!) 

 The kids love eating their snacks out of their new favorite bowls!

I also stayed up to watch Patriots Day which was really good. I finally called it a night around 1am which is SO late for me but I took advantage of not being tired (and paid for it the next day)

Sunday we were up and I made a giant breakfast then Ella wanted to go out and try out the new bubble machine I got.

We gave the hubs his presents and we were dying because Ella took it upon herself to wrap (more like put in a gift bag) some random stuff that morning. She also helped Avery "wrap" a gift. Avery gave Rick a pair of ballet shoes and Ella gave him a nerf gun and a pretend screw driver that goes to one of her toys. It was hilarious to say the least!!!

We spent the afternoon at my in laws then came home to relax.

This week Brayden has S.T.E.M. camp every day so me and the girls will get some quality time in!

How was your weekend?
