Happy Monday, Friends! We had some AMAZING weather here Saturday and Sunday and we are all exhausted from spending every spare minute outside. Fresh air for everyone!
Friday night the kids and I made our own pizzas using dough and sauce I had picked up up at Trader Joes earlier in the week. We've been doing Pizza Friday for YEARS at this point and I'm not sure how/why we've never made our own pies! The dough and sauce were DELICIOUS and the kids had the best time assembling them themselves.
Earlier in the week we had meatballs and sauce for dinner (also from Trader Joes... see my post HERE) and we decided to use the extras on our pizzas! SO GOOD!!!
The kids all crashed pretty early and then it was just me and a crazy storm that blew through and dropped a bunch of hail on us (again). Thankfully our new roof and other damage (from the storm last month) hasn't been repaired yet!
Saturday morning was awesomely chilly and Griffin and I hit up dance class and then headed to Lowe's to grab a few supplies. Miss Independent wanted to pull the cart all by herself. ;) Good luck with that, sister!
A quick stop at home for some lunch and to change out of dance clothes and then we were off for a couple of errands...
... and to a birthday party for one of Mason's friends.
It was at Sci-Tech Discover Center in Frisco and was so much fun!
They had several demonstrations, made rockets, had snacks and then got to explore. There was a giant red blood cell (there were 500 red balls/cells in there and 1 white ball/cell)...
... this camera that you could point at things and then see them magnified on the screens....
... a microscope camera...
... and a giant nose that sneezed ;)
There was a whole room of really great hands on things as well...
... simple machines...
... huge foam blocks...
... and BUBBLES!!!
It was such a fun party and was so neat that all the kids got to go and participate.
Later that evening we stopped by Anna Grace's house to see her before she headed to Prom! Can y'all even believe it?!?! Anna Grace - the sweet, precious soon-to-be-freshman who was a "mother's helper" for me the summer that Griffin was born is about to graduate!
Anna Grace is even prettier on the inside than she is on the outside and she has been such a blessing for me and the kids! And I swear I wouldn't have survived June - August of 2013 without her :) Going from 2 to 3 kids rocked my world and having her around during the day was such a huge help for being able to be out and about and (some days) just get dinner started and laundry done.
This one cracks me up!
And look how sweet they were last year!
Saturday night we at outside (and were chilly! amen!) and all crashed early (again).
Sunday morning Griffin insisted on matching and we sported our matching aviators ;)
After church we spent the rest of the day outside cleaning, mulching, trimming, etc. and I took zero pictures until this....
... which pretty much summed up how all of us felt at the end of the weekend :)
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to share your grown-up parties for Show and Tell Tuesday tomorrow.
Happy Monday, friends!
