Happy Monday!!! As you're reading this - I'm probably groggily making my way through Pre-Algebra going through tea-withdrawal (I'm a chain tea drinker when I'm at home. hahaha) and thinking about lunch. :)
It was rainy and kind of yuck this weekend, so we made the most out of it and tried to get a few things done around the house. First up on the list.... behind Mason's bed. Mason likes to stick things behind his bed and when we pulled it away from the wall we found this treasure trove...
Legos, color tiles, Lincoln Logs, Hot Wheels cars and pennies. That kid!!!
I snapped this picture during lunch and it cracked me up. Luke had polished off his GIANT lunch (seriously - growth spurt!!!) and was focused on ice cream, Griffin had danced herself into a tizzy and was recouping on the floor (with a handful of beaded necklaces) and Mason, the slowest eater ever, had been stuck in the high chair because he kept getting up from the table. Glamorous life we live over here ;)
We spent a solid 45 minutes in this chair after lunch. Hot mess express ;)
We were going to head to dinner at Watters Creek - but Luke suggested McDonalds and y'all know I'm a sucker for their ice cream :) We picked Gibi up and made our way to the golden arches.
The humidity was HIGH and GG's curls were out of control!
Griffin was too little to climb up by hefself (she thought she was big enough, but couldn't quite manage), so Dave was a good sport and took her up :) Thankfully we were the only family in the playspace!
you can't really see G because of the glare, but that's my entire crew in the little train car at the very top. hahahaha
And yes, even though it was just McDonalds I put on actual clothes to go... I had been in PJs long enough! I consider myself kind of a scarf snob, I'm particular about "fullness" and this new one from Matilda Jane came in the mail that afternoon and I approved!
Saturday morning Luke went to ice skating lessons with Gibi and Haha and I stayed home with these two crazies.
And while they were being silly.... this big kid was ROCKING it on the ice!!!
He is doing so well and we are super proud of him!!!
Griffin has a HUGE case of monkey see, monkey do and she wants to do EVERYTHING her brothers do. At lunch, Mason was eating ketchup with his macaroni (gross!) and she wanted to eat some too even though she doesn't like ketchup AT ALL! She was making the BEST faces and we were cracking up because she kept eating it just because Mason was! :)
After lunch we played with play dough for close to 2 hours. We had a bake shop, train station and school house. :)
When G woke up from her nap I wanted to try some of her new Matilda Janeon her and this was the response I got :) hahaha
Sunday morning someone was looking pretty in pink (just a little. hahaha)
and I was cracking up because when I went to get her out of the car she wouldn't budge. She knew I was going to make her leave her baby and kitty in the car and just kept giving me "the glare". :)
Me and my two littlest babies after church!
In the afternoon the boys played tennis - look how stinkin' cute they are!!!
After tennis they each wanted to try out my camera. Luke took this pic of Mason...
... and Mason took this pic of Luke :)
After tennis we headed to Starbucks (AMEN!) and Adriatica to walk and visit the park. I'm super excited because the sun was shining (kind of) and I had a Venti English breakfast tea :)
Also... I've teased it a couple of times and a full review is coming up, but how awesome is my Joovy TooFold?!?!?! I can't WAIT to show y'all everything it does. I mean.. I'm pushing two kids around with ONE HAND!!! If you've ever pushed a double stroller you know how amazing this is.
Look at Jack Bauer! :) hahahaha Spoiled much???
I think I've mentioned Adriatica before, but it's this really cool "Croatian village" in the middle of our development. There are shops, restaurants, offices, apartments and a super pretty chapel.
Every time we do this walk Luke has to run down and back up this giant hill :)
We made it to the park!!! WOO HOO!!!
It was the perfect way to end our break. We've had the best time just hanging out as a family.
We're all back to reality tomorrow and are excited about the last 9 weeks of school! I still can't believe that we're so close to having two in school! CRAZY!
I hope that y'all have a fantastic day! If you're starting break - have the best time! And if you're back to reality - I hope there's some caffeine in your near future :)
