Weekly Recap + Memorial Day 2018

Hi friends! It feels like forever since I've visited this little space of mine! Long weekends will do that to you :)

I feel like it's so long ago to recap our week but it was a good one so I want to

Last Monday I went on field trip with Brayden's class downtown to a museum - it was so fun!! I love being able to do stuff like that! (and also super grateful for my Mom to watch my girls)

I have to say, my little guy is so sweet, he chose to sit with me both ways even though he had other friends whose parents were chaperoning that were not sitting with each other. I just love my little boy!


The girls were being extra cute setting up their towels and pretending to be at the beach in our living room.


I took them to our local nature center park and they had so much fun!!

The kids all have swim lessons on Mon & Wed nights and every time we leave they ask for a picture on this bear, so I have like 87349 of these, but hey, what's one more :)

We had a baseball game Thursday night and the boys played so well! And us Moms were representing :)

Friday was Field Day at Brayden's school and I signed up to volunteer (again, thank you to my Mom for watching the girls!!) It was HOT this day but thankfully his grade was the morning shift (but still, I think it was high 80's by 10am)


Friday night was the first night of Brayden's baseball tournament - this was our first tournament so it was exciting. He had 1 game Friday, 1 game Saturday and 2 on Sunday. Of course it was record breaking high temps but the boys did so well and really didn't complain given that they were fully dressed in their uniforms with it being 90+ degrees out! They came in 3rd overall in the tournament out of 12 teams so that was pretty exciting!

In between the games on Sat-Sun we swam at my in laws and I went to a family friends daughters baby shower too.

Monday we had a BBQ at our house with 4 couples and their kids - so 8 adults and 10 kids. It was a little crazy but everyone had so much fun together!! Rick went in the morning to get a blow up pool because again the weather was in the 90's, my friend brought over like 500 water balloons and we had so many squirt guns! The kids were having a blast and so were the adults. I may have had a little too much fun and one too many glasses of prosecco because I was not feeling well at the end of the night. I put myself right to bed and slept in until Brayden told me to get up, LOL.

It was definitley a fun filled weekend and I pretty much let go of all household duties so yesterday was spent grocery shopping/laundry & cleaning. I feel so much better to tackle the rest of the week now!

*also, I know there are some issues with comments where I am not receiving them via email so I cannot reply - I really hope this issue is fixed soon because I love getting comments and responding!
