Life Lately {7.23.18}

Happy Monday!! It's been a while since I've recapped our week so I thought it would be best to do a little life lately so I don't forget to document more of our fun summer!

I took the kids to a fun lego event at the lego store - you have to sign up a month before then you pick a day/time to go the following month. They give each kid a little lego set to put together and the kids loved it!

We celebrated free slurpee day on the 11th!! Well, most of us did - Ella does not like slurpees!

 We had an art day at home and made sand bottles! This was a HIT!

A picture of Brayden on his birthday eve!! Went to bed 7....


and woke up 8!! He requested breakfast in bed again so that's what he had! The girls were so cute giving him cards and a present

Later that day we had plans to hang out with friends at the local splash pad! It was a fun time


 At night we had family come over for cake and ice cream! Oh, and funny story, I had wrapped Brayden's gifts from Rick and I and while I was picking up the house Avery brought them upstairs to Brayden and told him they were from her so he opened them! All of them! I was so bummed we didn't get to see his face because he got some cool stuff - kids, I tell  ya!!!


Brayden spent some time reading Peppa the Pig books to his sisters :)

We had a nails night on a Friday while the boys were out at a tournament

We spent the rest of that weekend at the tournament - it was hot, it was exciting and it was exhausting! 12 hour days at the baseball field are not for the faint! But we had a blast even though the boys didn't win



 All last week Brayden & Ella had church camp and they loved it!

while this cutie had "kiddie" camp!

we had more fun at splash pads

and saw a dog show at the library which the kids loved! Brayden even got picked to be in the show

We had another baseball tournament this past weekend so again me and the girls stayed back Friday night since we knew the rest of the weekend would be spent at the fields. My friend and I signed the girls up for a pottery class which was actually a drop off - for 2 hours they ate pizza, painted pottery and did crafts and my friend and I had a little Moms night out - (we went to a restaurant literally next door haha) The girls had so much fun!

Saturday was out of the house early to drive to the tournament - the boys had won Friday night, and won both games on Saturday!! It was an awesome day!!

We celebrated afterwards with Portillos and some of us had adult beverages :)

and then yesterday we headed back out for the last day of the tournament - we had to win our first game to move on to the championship game and we did it!! It was so close but the boys pulled through - so we went on to play for the title and WE WON!! My gosh was it an exciting day!!!! My husband's the coach of this team and I just have to give him a shout out for being awesome, like really awesome! He does so well with these kids and it shows 

We went out for dinner after the big win with some teammates then headed home to relax, something we haven't done all weekend!

  4. Wow congrats on winning the tournament! We did slurpee day too, we all love it. Love the splash pads and fun classes you've done!

  5. I remember doing those sand bottles. I had so many of them. Sounds like a great week. I totally forgot about slurped day. So glad you guys didn’t.

  6. Those sand bottles just brought back SO many memories!!!! I used to have those all over my room when I was little. I must do this with our babies soon!

  7. What fun you all have had! Solon wants breakfast in bed for his birthday too :). What a fun celebration and yay for winning the baseball tournament!

  8. WOOHOO!!! Congrats on moving on to the Championship Game!!! I love how much you guys do. Literally as I was reading this I went over to Amazon and purchased a sand art kit. LOL! I reaaaally think the kids will enjoy that. Bummer you didn't get to see Brayden's face when he opened his presents. I guess you got a great story out of it though. Can't wait to see what all ya'll do next!

  9. Brayden has had a great time as an 8 year old! I love that you do breakfast in bed. Congrats on the Championship game. Those sand kits are so much fun. I love the picture of all the kids. And a dog show at the library, my kids would have thought that was the coolest thing ever!
