Weekly Recap 8.22.18

Hi blog world! I'm finally getting around to recapping our week on the blog - it was the last official week of summer break for Brayden so we tried to cram in lots of fun!!

Monday we went to lunch and then the neighborhood pool with lots of friends! The kids all had so much fun!!

Oh man, poor Ella - she wanted to jump off this diving board SO BAD but just could not get the courage to. She gets an A++++++ for trying though, because she did try no less than 30 times! It was a little comical watching all the kids cheer her on and getting frustrated waiting on her LOL


Another day we went to Gameworks with friends and again, the kids had a blast!! They scored enough points to get a bunch of junk in the game room and they couldn't have been happier

The girls spent time doing their workbooks and as usual, Ella was excited and Avery was NOT - haha

We went to the zoo one day with my Mom and the weather was perfect, not too hot and not cold

They have this new thing where you can feed the giraffes so I let the kids do that - Brayden & Ella loved it and I held Avery while she did it and she got nervous

Friday night I went out to dinner with some friends and girl time is just what I needed!!

Over the weekend, I had bridesmaid dress shopping, then we went to my aunt & uncles for a pool party for the bridal party in my cousins wedding - the kids swam for HOURS and I actually got to sit and talk!

Sunday the 5 of us went to practice baseball (Ella's playing t-ball this fall!) then out for ice cream! We ended the night going out to dinner and relaxing before Brayden had school the next day!!

And that's a wrap for our week (last week LOL)


  1. I love all of the end of summer fun you're all having! I haven't been in a pool nearly as much as I would have liked this year. How fun they got to feed a giraffe and yay for girl time! Sierra Beautifully Candid

  2. So much fun. That game place looks great. We are supposed to get giraffe feeding at our zoo at some point! Simon just got a t-ball set for his birthday. He doesn't want to play for real, but he really wanted it for the backyard!

  3. You are living it up with the BEST Summer memories made!! will be thinking of you, coming to a Cubs game Saturday!

  4. THose giraffe pictures are AWESOME!!!! I would LOVE to do that sometime! The last time we went to the zoo it was too cold so the giraffes were put up. I was so sad!

  5. Ahhh this reminds me of how long it has been since I have made it to the zoo - so fun! You guys really made the most of the last week with everyone home!

  6. Looks like you had the best last week of summer with your kids. You guys stayed so busy. I can’t wait to see the recaps of the wedding when it happens.
