Well, I'm back! I know it's been almost 3 months since I last wrote a blogpost. The only excuse that I can give is that I've been busy. I feel like we've been going, going, going all summer long & now the summer is GONE! The kids have started school & I'm hoping that things will finally settle down a little bit which means hopefully I can find time to blog more often!
The kids & I made a summer fun list just like we did last year.
We had 35 things on our list & we able to do all but 5. Not bad!
Here are some of the things that we did...
We went to the splash park.
We went on a scavenger hunt.
The kids participated in the library's summer reading program & both earned trophies by reading (or being read to) 20 books.
We went to Chuck E Cheese
and to Mr. Gatti's.
(And I won the Flaming Finger again. That's right, I'm pretty awesome at that game, lol!)
We feed the ducks.
We washed my car.
(And Alex washed his car too!)
We went to the playground.
We planted a small vegetable garden.
We played dress up.
We participated in a sticker club.
We flew kites.
We played doctor.
We went to the Rainforest Cafe.
We feed farm animals.
We got hair cuts.
We went to Build A Bear.
We went to Lone Star Bounce.
We had a spa day at home.
(Addy painted her nails all by herself.)
We went swimming & Alex jumped off the high dive!
We went to the Sugar Land branch of the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
We went to Sonic A LOT so Addy could get her favorites, french fries & ice cream.
The kids both had their yearly check ups.
We had a water balloon fight in the backyard.
We celebrated my PaPa's 85th birthday
and Boone & Charlie's 2nd & 3rd birthdays.
Not only have I been busy doing things with the kids, but I personally have had a busy summer too...
I went to crossfit almost every day
(& sometimes the kids wanted to work out with me)
I bought a used breakfast table & chairs & stripped & restained it.
I volunteered to be one of the co chairs for the store at Addy's school & this summer I gave it a complete makeover.
Nick & I went to a Texans preseason game
The Texans lost to the Saints but it was still a good game!
I attended bookclub at my mom's house
and I went to my wonderful friend Kelli's baby shower (she's expecting twins any day now!!!)
which I made the centerpieces for.
We also celebrated Addy's birthday & the 4th of July & went on vacation to Georgia. I hope to have those posts written very very soon!
