Quite possibly MY favorite week of summer so far! Monday we had a friend over for a playdate and we just laid low the rest of the day, except Kindergarten camp of course (we don’t miss those). I was spent after the weekend and decided we just needed to do nothing. Tuesday was a very long day, but all super fun. The parade in the morning, brunch at my brother’s and then a pool party/birthday party in the evening. No fireworks for us this year, I’m thinking maybe next year I’ll sneak away with Ellery and let her enjoy the fireworks, but this year I decided normal bedtime was the way to go!
Wednesday we did family night. Dinner at home and then playing at the park. The girls are finally at the point where they can both pretty comfortable play on the bigger playground. We had the park to ourselves and the girls constantly slid down the slide together. Thursday I let the girls watch TV basically the ENTIRE day so I could get the house picked up and sort of clean before Steph and Cora arrived. The girls anxiously awaited their arrival and stood at the window beginning over an hour prior to them actually getting here. Then we let them stay up really late and play dress up.
Friday we got to go to a pool party with some of my mom’s group ladies. It is a very cool natural looking pool with a water fall, the girls had a blast, and Stephanie was a total champ swimming with all three girls! After we swam we took them to our favorite burger place (P.Terry’s) to play in the sand, which upon arrival we discovered it was SCALDING hot and they were unable to play in the sand. Mom fail on that one….
Saturday we RAN THEM RAGGED!! Started our day playing at the Thinkery. It was a CRAZY busy morning with the most people I have ever seen there. Then we ran home and put Vaughn down for nap and hopped on the boat. Then the girls were DONE. Steph put Cora down for bed and then we headed out for dinner at one of my favorite scenic places. Then of course we ended up at Target wandering the aisles until they closed.
Sunday we went to church and then decided to just ALL take naps to reset ourselves. Stephanie and I were up until 1:30 every night she was here. After naps we went swimming for a little bit and then to the Sundancer Grill for our last dinner of vacation.
Already counting down the weeks until we see each other again!
