Happy Monday, friends! We had a great week of celebrating America and our Doodle! On Monday, we baked up some treats for our local firehouse.
Patience is a virtue and may sometimes lead to spoons to lick up the leftovers!
I love the cards that the kids made for the firefighters!
They decorated their bikes for the next day's parade.
Love taking a moment to just watch my people doing things they enjoy!
Our nearby golf course shot off fireworks on the 3rd, so we went to watch with friends and then were up early on the 4th to get ready for the parade.
We swam at home for a few hours, and then the Roo asked me to do Minnie Mouse ears for her hairstyle. If you have a little girl that loves Disney, watch THIS video tutorial!
Robert and I have been trying out various burger knock-offs, so we made In-N-Out sliders for dinner.
After dinner, we headed to our friends' house to shoot off fireworks.
We ended the week with lots of errands, including a trip to Lowe's and Home Depot. Minnie found her Mickey!
We're looking into getting blinds for our living room and explored lots of different options.
I spotted a chandelier that I'm in love with for the dining room and found a paint system that I'm considering using for our coffee table.
Ari's expression of the summer is, "Oh cheeseballs!" Robert wants to indulge her and buy the giant tub, but mean mommy removes them from the cart every time!
I went out to dinner with friends on Friday night, and it was fun to get out and not have to dish out food or try to entertain anyone! We went to a restaurant close to my new school, and I'm so excited to start on my new venture soon!
When I got home, the kids wanted to watch music videos, so we turned on some Def Leppard for everyone to get their rock on!
On Saturday morning, I assembled Trip's ice cream cake for his party later that day.
"Mommy, watch this! I learned how to do arm farts." Welcome to mom life!
Ari had a sleepover at her grandparents' and the drive over was just slightly hot. Don't worry! We cooled off to 103 degrees a few minutes later!
We spent the rest of Saturday taking Trip and a few close buddies to play at Main Event and then had a sleepover. It was without a doubt, the easiest birthday party yet, and I think they had so much fun!
We spent Sunday re-cooperating, skipped out on the week's grocery shopping, and picked up an easy dinner instead! I'm going to be taking my first class in my new school district this week which is exciting, and then we're going to celebrate the Doodle's actual birthday later this week.
I'll see you back here tomorrow for Show & Tell Tuesday and Tuesday Training! See you soon!
