Weekend Recap - Long Weekend Edition

Friday was our first official day of summer and we made the most of it!  GG was at Miss Lisa's house for her last day, but the boys and I worked around the house, went to school to turn in my laptop and wrap up my classroom for the summer and we ran several errands.  Apparently it was exhausting because look at this boy...


Lunchtime is the best time!


The painters got to our house early Friday morning and here's a little peek at Mason's room by afternoon (pink was before. hahahaha)




... and the Master bath!  I am loving the fresh colors and can't wait for the painters to come this weekend and paint the dining room and kitchen.


Saturday the kids and I ran a few errands and then enjoyed a picnic on the porch while we waited for Mrs.Anderson to come pick up boxes from us.


Mason ate almost that entire pint of blueberries! He thinks they're candy.



After lunch we colored with chalk and had ice cream sandwiches!





Yes, ma'am!



I bought Griffin the cutest bathing suit ever from Sew Chill and it came in the mail that morning.  She wanted to nap in it, but I persuaded her to wait until swimming time after naps. ;)





SO CUTE!!!



Even Jack got in on the swimming action!










Sunday morning  we snapped our first family selfie on the porch...


... including dinosaur :)

And these three looked so cute in their red, white and blue!





After church, I tried to snap a picture with GG, but got these instead :)  #sweetgirl



Sunday night my dad came over to stay with Griffin and my mom and I took the boys to the VIP Party at the Smiles Charity concert.  (If Dave had been MIA during this post it's because it was a CRAZY weekend for him at work and he worked a TON).

We enjoyed some yummy food...


... and live music (we were there early and heard the opener... some guy from American Idol).


There was a PERFECT hill for rolling down...


... and chilling with your mom :)







As the event filled up, the sky got darker and we actually saw lightning and decided to head out.









But not before Luke took Mason's hat and they chased each other around. hahaha  #brothers





So cute :)


 It was great timing for us to leave because about 10 minutes later a HUGE storm rolled through  and they ended up sending everyone at the event to the parking garage to wait it out. 

I was going to share about Monday as well, BUT my phone is being weird and I can't get the pictures off of it (AND it's late) so I"ll share those another day.  

Dave is off today (hallelujah!) and we have plans to hang out at the pool and get things done around the house. 

Enjoy your Tuesday, friends!!!

  6. Griffin's suit is the cutest! Too bad they don't make that in adult sizes haha! I think some little girl swimsuits would look great on adults, too! Enjoy your pool day!

  7. So when you say you bought her the suit you actually mean you got it for free and then make commission when people buy it?

    1. Nope. I meant that I actually bought it. As in, ordered it off the website when it came out. I'm friends with the girl who owns Sew Chill and occasionally she'll send Griffin pieces to promote, but I disclose that in the body of the post or at the end. And no, I don't make any commission off of her links - most of the small shops I work with don't pay commissions. We enjoy the products and love spreading the word for businesses run by hard-working moms! Feel free to email me if you have any other questions about my disclosures and/or when we receive something c/o.

    1. Simple fun is by far the best! Treasure those messy, dirty grass filled kiddos...all too quickly they grow up and don't want to play like that! Hope you guys have an awesome summer! And the house...it's beautiful. Congrats !!!
