Weekly Recap {3.19.18}

Happy Monday! It seems like everyone is either done with Spring Break or starting and we still have another week. Not like I'm counting down the days....

We are coming off a great weekend, one that left me wanting more nice weather, all the time. I'm having visions of lots of outside playtime, picnics and more and I cannot wait!!

Before I get to our fun weekend, I need to recap our week :)

Ella was playing the good big sister role and "reading" books to Avery before her nap. Then she asked if she could lay with her and I overheard them talking/giggling and singing the ABC's together and I swear, my heart melted

Monday night after showers, Avery proceeded to put her ballet tutu on and play marbles :)

Tuesday afternoon we went to our hot spot - the library! Ella's friend met us there

Rick has this net set up in our garage for Brayden to practice taking cuts - he asked me to sit and watch him so that's exactly what I did.  I cannot wait to see him on the field this year!

This one - she is makeup OBSESSED! We ran to Walgreens for deodorant and new nail polish for me and she begged for a lipstick. Then she proceeded to put on approximately 198382 coats

Avery still refuses most veggies but girlfriend still loves her smoothies, and she loves helping!

I took the girls to lunch at McDonalds where they had a playplace and I immediately wanted to soak them in bleach after, LOL. 

After lunch we went to a little bakery and decorated cupcakes with Ella's bestie

Later that night there was a basketball fundraiser event at Brayden's school that we went to. The girls LOVE being at Brayden's school so much


After the school event I took Brayden to the bakery we went to earlier in the day because I had bought him a cupcake then totally left it there.

We had decent weather Thursday so we played outside for a bit

We have been spending lots of free time playing with magnatiles! 


Friday we went to Legoland and it was SO FUN! I have a full post on our adventures there coming up

Saturday consisted of dance class then cleaning up the yard a little since the weather was decent. I ran out to a few stores during quiet time then we had corned beef for dinner and it was delish! We just hung around at night and the kids all put out their traps for the leprechaun because we forgot to the night before #fail. It also has somehow become a tradition for the kids to sleep on the pull out couch and try and catch the leprechaun in the playroom.

Sunday morning first thing we headed to an event at our local nature center. It was all about learning how to make maple syrup from sap. There was a breakfast part of it but we had already eaten so we just walked around and checked out all of the demonstrations. The kids had alot of fun!!




Later in the day we walked/rode bikes to the park and played some tennis (with no nets lol) Brayden and I actually played for a while while Rick took the girls to the park and we were both sweating after!

We walked down by my in laws to say Hi then walked/rode back home. The rest of the night was having dinner and relaxing, we were all exhausted from all the fresh air!

Back to the weekly activities!

  5. I was thinking the same thing about spring break... it seems like everyone has already done theirs, but we still have a whole week as well! I guess ours is just later! As always you guys had a ball this week! and I really need to start making smoothies for our kids so I can try to sneak some veggies in their systems.

  6. Spring doesn't start until the week of Easter around here. It's so crazy to see how it different it is in other places. That is so cute she was reading to her and laying with her! We tried to let the boys sleep together once and they just couldn't wind down. The giggled and kept hiding under the covers. Sierra~Beautifully Candid
