Weekly Recap {6.11.18}

And another week has come and gone just like that! Summer is in full swing over here (minus the really cruddy rainy weather we had all weekend)

Here's a look back at our week

Monday was my birthday - the bigs came down with "presents" for me which were shoe boxes filled with little items from their rooms, bless their hearts! My mom-friend invited us over to swim at their awesome inground pool and she had pizza and cookies and even had all the kids sing, it was sweet. Brayden is friends with her son too so everyone had a blast!


Monday night we had dinner at my in-laws. They grilled up some steak with yummy sides.

Haha Rick says I'm forever 29 so that's what he got for candles

Tuesday we had a super fun zoo day with 3 other school-friend families. All together there were 11 kids with us but it sometimes felt like 20 LOL! We all survived and had a lot of fun! We even got to see a sloth which I had never seen and I've been to the zoo probably 200 times!


Ella did NOT want to take this picture 

Tuesday night was a baseball game and the boys played awesome

Wednesday I am really struggling with what we did, ha ha! I know the kids had swim lessons at night but yeah, can't remember the day!

Thursday we met up with some other friends who we haven't seen in about a year - the boys went to preschool together but starting in K went to different elementary schools so we don't see eachother as often as we'd like to. We went to a local park and the girls all played on the tire swing for the most part and the boys played soccer in the field. It was so hot we decided after hanging out with them all morning to go swimming at my in laws - it was just what we needed!

Friday was running some errands then to the library because I wanted to sign up the bigs for the summer reading program but it actually doesn't start until today. Instead we played a little, checked out a bunch of books and some movies and headed home. The kids did quiet time upstairs in the afternoon while I cleaned the house

Friday night Brayden had a game then it was bedtime for the kids and I tried to stay up to watch a dateline but fell asleep 5 minutes in. Saturday was suppose to be a game but got cancelled due to rain so we spent the morning lounging, and finally putting up Avery's gallery wall in her room (I'll share that later this week hopefully!) We headed out for some errands and to take the kids to make glow in the dark slime at Michaels. Brayden & Avery were all about it but Ella doesn't like it so she wandered the isles asking Rick to buy her all the things

The weather totally shifted and it got super nice out so we went to my in laws to swim and our friends ended up meeting us over there and all the kids swam together while we chatted.

Sunday was another cancelled game due to more storms throughout the night so we moved slow all morning. My bestie was in town from CA and staying with her parents who live 2 minutes from us so we all went over there to hang out with her and meet her new boyfriend. The kids were really well behaved which I was so thankful for and after a few hours we headed home to watch A Wrinkle in Time.  The rest of the night was spent hanging out, we were all very tired from a long weekend!

Now it's off to start our week!!
