Weekend Recap & Life Lately

Since returning home from Denver last Tuesday I’ve been soaking up as much time as possible with the kids. Memorial Day kicked off summer and we jumped right into all the summer things including 3 trips to the new snow cone hut within the last week.I finally cleaned out our water table and almost gagged. The stuff that gets in there is disgusting. My kids are the type that will dunk their heads in and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen them drink the water so I like it to be very clean. All the work was worth it though and they’ve played with it almost every day since.Brothers playing with water table

So far I’ve tried the pink lemonade, pomegranate, and strawberry daiquiri, which was probably my least favorite.Hokulia shaved iceWeekend Recap Pink lemonade shaved ice

Jack’s stuffed animal pile was growing out of control and he was having a hard time letting them go. He wanted to hug each one and demanded a picture with them. I also caught him moving several from the donate bag back into his closet.Weekend Recap Boy with stuffed animals

I signed the boys up for Summer Reading at the library. Ben is really into chapter books and it makes my heart so happy.

On Saturday we went to J’s aunt’s house for a birthday party. Their dog, Hunter, is the sweetest but anytime he comes near Jack, Jack heads in the other direction. The boys were sitting on the edge of the pool and Hunter came up behind them. Jack jumped into the water so fast and we were all dying laughing.

On Sunday we made homemade banana orange popsicles with these popsicle holders I found at Walmart.

I love how my DIY wreath turned out and decided to go ahead and hang it. The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays.Weekend Recap DIY 4th of July Wreath

Today was back to our normal routine and after being out of the office for over a week it’s hard to go back. Wish me luck!
