Weekend Recap - Rainy Day Edition

Happy Monday, friends!  All the kids are at camps this week and we are so excited about it!  The boys are at Sky Ranch Launch Camp and Griffin is at a local church for a preschool music camp in the mornings.  I'm already excited to hear about their days!  And if you're looking for me this morning I'll be running as many kid-free errands as possibly in a 2.5 hour time period.

Saturday morning was supposed to be Mason's last baseball game of the season but it got rained out the night before so we surprised the kids with a trip to the movies to see Captain Underpants instead.

And yes... they all brought blankets AND stuffed animals :)

The theater has these great big leather reclining chairs and we all love to snuggle up...

It was the 9:30 a.m movie and we still managed to put back two large popcorns ;)  If you've been thinking about going to see the movie I totally recommend it!  It was funny and the little friends were precious.  It was creative and while it definitely had some "potty humor" we all really enjoyed it.

After the movie this happened...

Anyone else excited about Despicable Me 3?!?!

We spent the rest of the afternoon doing thrilling things like cleaning out the van, refrigerator and closets. ;)   My mom stopped by, we swam in between storms and played a TON of Rummikub.

When the boys asked me to make cookies Saturday night I happily obliged.  Fresh from the oven at 9:20 at night??? Why not. 

Sunday afternoon  Mason made his very own drum set...

... followed by a whole city :)

 We went to the library and then I tackled some #plantlady projects including repotting my fiddle leaf figs and getting a few of the pots on the patio ready for summer.  This was the before... hence the disaster happening out there.

While Dave and I worked the kids swam and then I made the mistake of going out to the gazebo to try and clean up the chairs a bit...

... I reached under and apparently stuck my ring finger right into a wasp nest.  I'm not sure how many stings I had on both sides of my finger but y'all... I forgot how bad those hurt!!!  It swelled up pretty bad and still looked pretty puffy even after a couple of hours.  Thankfully Dave was able to get rid of the nest and we all had a good time watching him spray the nest, run for his life and then go back to destroy it the rest of the way.  #superdad

My dads stopped by after golf and it was perfect timing because he's the world's best towel dryer :)  


After dinner we had movie night and it ended like this...

Happy HAPPY Monday, y'all!!!

I haven't been stung by anything since I was a kid BUT I still remember walking through the grass in sandals one time and a wasp got stuck between the bottom of my foot and inside my sandal. It stung me right where my toes met the pad of my foot. It hurts just thinking about it! Looks like yall made the best of the SUPER rainy weekend!!
