We started Friday off right some serious cheesing before heading to the pool with friends.
If you questioned the validity of the low hanging mirror, I'm thinking these pictures might change your mind. :)
I've had several of you ask me about the mixed print suit I ordered from Albion and whether or not I like it, how it fits, etc. Well... it has arrived, and it is fabulous. Never in a million years did I think I would be posting a bathing suit selfie on the internet, but I do what I have to do... and I felt like I HAD to how you how cute it is so you can order one too. (and no, I'm not sponsored or anything like that by Albion, I'm just an enthusiast for cute, modest bathing suits that you can feel comfortable and cute in)
There are lots of children and laundry in the picture and I snapped a whole one pic before we loaded up in the car, so this is what you get :) I think the suit fits true to size (I'm wearing a small in both pieces) and I think they're both really flattering. I love that the bottoms are high waisted so when you're being mauled by small children in the pool (you know that you know what I'm talking about!) there's no chance of a wardrobe malfunction.
We had so much fun with our friends and we enjoyed the best part of the pool - the frozen treats :)
We brought along our friend Garrett who goes to church with us and is a Junior at MCA and my boys ate him up... and so did GG :) Ping pong anyone???
As we were leaving the pool, Mason joined a group of unsuspecting teenage girls and made himself at home. Sigh. Pray for me with this one :)
I really should take a group picture of them BEFORE we swim for over two hours. WORN OUT!
After dropping Garrett off we spotted some horses and GG was out of her mind excited. She kept squealing MORE MORE MORE every time I started moving the car.
And the best part of the pool??? Naps...
Sleepy eyes, pizza face and a ponytail. #summertime
We ended the night squeaky clean and snuggled up in bed the "big bed"...
I saw this on Friday night and died laughing - I can totally relate.
But instead of picking up the mess, we did this instead.
Saturday morning we did some work around the house and then headed to watch Luke's skating lesson. I was excited to see him skate and also for the opportunity to bundle up a bit for the rink :) hahaha (PS - I just got these shoes and I LOVE them! I needed something comfy for our trip to Colorado and these fit the bill. Comfy and so cute!!!)
Mason wanted to snuggle to stay warm which received no arguments from me and GG insisted on bundling her baby.
Luke has made so much progress and has done so well in his lessons. We couldn't be prouder! He's taking a break for the summer as his schedule is full of music camp, tennis camp, golf camp, swimming lessons and VBS, but we have plans for him to get back on the ice in August, and he'll decide whether he wants to continue in skating or move to hockey. Check out this kids crossovers!
Saturday afternoon Luke went to a birthday party while the Littles and I hung out at home and painted, played with playdoh and took naps.
Saturday evening we picked up my mom and headed to the pool for dinner and swimming. There was live music and burgers, does it get any better???
After a few dozen jumps off the diving board and twice as many laps, everyone needed some ice cream.
Does it surprise anyone that this boy insisted on eating his from the bottom up?
It was a perfect night!
Sunday morning we headed to church with Baby in tow.
And a weekend full of swimming finally caught up with this sweet boy during service.
I tried to grab a quick pic of them all dressed and looking cute after church and these are what I got...
Sunday morning ain't easy, ladies.
We spent the afternoon taking naps, playing games and doing a whole lot of this...
When Mason got too rough with Griffin, his punishment was for her to give him hugs and kisses ;)
Worked like a charm!!!
Sunday afternoons are for wrastlin'
Girlfriend can hold her own!
That side-eye, though! :)
This one kind of sums them all up perfectly.
Am I lucky or what?!?!?!
After dinner the boys headed to the pool with Dave and Griffin and I enjoyed some girl time complete with a bath where she didn't have to share the tub with anyone...
... some burrito toweling...
... and some hair brushing :)
Can I tell you that I had a total moment during the hair brushing? I loooove to have my hair brushed and my mom ALWAYS brushed my hair growing up (while we were watching TV, etc.) and will still brush my hair on occasion. I was brushing G's hair and when I put the brush down she grabbed it and brushed mine. I may have shed a tear. #imasap
It was a fabulous weekend and we're all rested up for a week full of vacation Bible school and swimming lessons. Enjoy your Monday! :)
