Summer has started... and so far it has been NON STOP! Busy busy!!!
Friday the littles went to Miss Lisas for their last day and I took Luke and his bestie to the Perot Museum.
Lincoln headed home and Luke and I hung out at home before Mason and G got home. Friday night I headed to MCA for graduation. I had Alanna for 7th, 8th and 9th grade! It's always surreal when my sweet little middle schoolers graduate! (and especially surreal when they get married, have babies and become middle school teachers). #imreallyold
Papa Jay was the speaker and he was FANTASTIC!!!
These girls crack me up. They're sophomores (well, they will be next year) and are GORGEOUS!!! Again - my middle school babies growing up! If you've been a reader for a while you probably recognize "Mason's Anna Grace" on the right. She hung out with us A LOT last summer to help me out when G was newborn and she'll be back again this summer! WOO HOO!!! Katie hung out with us as well - two of the sweetest girls ever :)
I'm going to make this a WIWW post too (because #twobirdswithonestone) and to Graduation I wore white linen pants, a black tee from Anthropologie and a new Matilda Jane sweater. I'm obsessed with the sweater... it's lightweight, ombre and great quality. I love the ruffles and the button details. SO CUTE!
The blue ombre sweater is sold out (I MAY be able to get one size small from my Trunk Keeper... email me if you're interested)... but the sweater below is still in stock. Griffin has a coat that has a hood out of the same material as the sweater and we're going to wear them for Fall pics (yes - I'm nutso).
Dave was working all weekend long (the pools opened - so the snack bars opened as well) so Saturday morning it was just me and the kids. Griffin spent her morning running around with a pirate sword :)
And the boys played in the sandbox and then took a bath. After baths and G's nap we headed to the mall to run a couple of errands...
Saturday I wore this AWESOME tie dye scarf that a student gave me as an end of the year teacher gift. It's from a local boutique (Cotton Hearts - Downtown McKinney) and it's so so so pretty in real life. I also picked up some Kate Spade studs that I'm loving. Griffin always wants to pull on my dangly earrings and I think these will help with that.
Saturday afternoon Mark and Diana came by for a bit and after they went home Miss G got a chance to try out the sand box.
It started off well...
After dinner they played some more...
and played even more while I bathed Griffin, fed Griffin a bottle and put her to bed. I snapped this through my bedroom window while putting laundry away at almost 8 p.m. I had to go outside and physically carry them in :) Saying they love their sandbox is a total understatement.
Sunday morning Dave was back at work and the kids and I headed to church (yes... Mason is wearing the same shirt as Saturday... picking my battles) :)
I taught Sunday School with Erika and sported my "Y'all Tee" and Fancy Pants from Hippie Chick.
G took no nap in the nursery becasue she was too busy running around, but somehow she was all smiles when we got home.
Sunday evening we were all dressed and ready to head to a VIP party at a charity concert/event... but then it started POURING!!!
Instead we stayed home in our patriotic attire and played peek-a-boo and ate pizza with Gibi and Haha.
Yesterday Mason was excited to show me his muscles and sport his new Boden double decker bus tee :)
We hit up WalMart in the rain...
... and after an exhausting trip (#truth), Dave saved the day and we swung through the Country Club to pick up grilled cheeses for the kids :) When your hubby does Food and Beverage, the hours can be crazy - but the perks can be nice sometimes too. :)
We got home and I gave the kiddos their grilled cheese, and there was an extra box... my sweet hubby had a chicken pesto panini in there for me! WOO HOO!
After naps Dave came home and G and I ran a couple of errands. Her two favorite toys right now are my purse and the remote control :)
WHEW! That was a lot. :) I am loving summer break so far - rainy and not too hot and lots of time with my sweeties. Dave is off today (HALLELUJAH!!!) and, if the weather cooperates, we'll be spending the day outside doing yardwork. I hope y'all enjoyed all the pics today, because tomorrow is all about food! It's the last Wednesday of the month and time for another Momfessionals Recipe Club!
I'm going to be sharing one of my all time favorite recipes EVER - a recipe so good that it MAY put pregnant ladies into labor (true story). Get your recipes ready, ladies! I'm off for the summer and ready to try some new recipes!!!
