Weekly Recap {8.13.18}

Well hello there Monday! We're coming off a nice low-key weekend which is just what I needed. This week we are going full force with the fun because it's Brayden's last week before school starts!!

Anyway, here's a look back at our past couple of weeks

We went to the Cubs game with friends the weekend we got back from vacation - I was exhausted but it was so much fun!

The very next day we had a little birthday party for Avery - it was more like a glorified playdate with a few of her school friends but nonetheless she felt so special and that's all that mattered! She was begging for her own party so I'm glad she got one!

We did some puzzling one afternoon - it was cute because Avery kept wanting to do more and that never happens haha

We saw Christopher Robins with friends - it started out slow so I was worried it wouldn't keep their attention but it was fine and actually a really cute movie!

I took Ella to the library for a Ready for Kindergarten class they had, I swear it made her even more excited!!


I took the kids to a pool that I bought a Groupon for earlier in the summer - it was SO packed when we showed up I contemplated leaving but the kids were so excited so I put my anxiety aside, watched them like a hawk and we ended up having a great time! I was in the water with them the whole time and I know they loved that 

We took Ella and Brayden to Dicks for new cleats and Ella picked these fun pink ones!

We've been going on bike rides and it's been so great. Even though Brayden doesn't love riding his bike, he is always game when we go

My three loves!

Friday night we had our families over for all 3 kids' birthdays. I decided doing them all separate a month apart is ridiculous especially since they all have friend parties.  It worked out great and we all had a fun time!

Saturday me and this cutie whipped up some banana bread, it was delicious!!

Meanwhile the boys were outside doing work!

Saturday afternoon my Mom picked up Ella for a sleepover so the rest of us went over to some friends later on in the night and hung out.  We got home a little late and all went right to bed. Sunday I woke up and facetime'd Ella because I missed her cute face then we had a slow relaxing morning. Later we took the kids swimming at my in laws and had lunch over there then came home and got some housework done.

Today I have a physical and have to take all 3 kids with me,  please keep me in your thoughts hahaha!

  1. We are going to a Cubs game on the 25th. So much fun! I am so excited for our seats, Mr. Nine splurged as it will be my depression over boys back to college weekend, lol!! Good LUCK with your physical!!

  2. Looks like the perfect weekend. Water parks make me nervous but man E loves it.

  3. Do you live near Chicago? We grew up in SW WI, so not too far from there. Your daughter's b-day party looks like it was fun. I have to throw one for mine tomorrow too, and I just invited a couple of her friend's last night. SO, her party is going to be more like a playdate too, haha!

  4. A play date birthday party sounds fun enough! The pool too.

  5. That Cubs game looks like so much fun! Good luck today! I don't know what I would do it I had to take the kids with me to the doctor... I purposely delayed my appointment until next week so they would be in school. Lol.

  6. I can't remember the last time I went to a baseball game - which is a shame because we live right next to Fenway LOL! Look how happy she is for banana bread!! xo, Biana- BlovedBoston

  7. I love the idea of doing a family party for all three of them. Happy belated birthday to miss Avery! I'm glad she felt special with her friends and you all had a great weekend! Sierra Beautifully Candid
