Insta Friday - on Monday

i am behind
we've been busy enjoying beautiful summer days and checking things off our summer bucket list
i will get caught up.... eventually but for now i am loving our crazy summer days filled with sunshine, friends, treats, and laughter

i am linking up with jeannett again this week for insta friday

here's a little glimpse at our week:
 we FINALLY made our first trip to the water park
the kids have been so anxious to go but the weather has not been cooperating
this day wasn't great for the water park... a little chilly for swimming for this mama but the kids loved it
it wasn't crowded so there were no lines for rides
a hawaiian ice is necessary to cap off a full day of swimming and going on rides
 sassy was just being sassy while eating her hawaiian ice
 our neighbors church held a soccer themed vbs program last week in the evenings
they had perfect weather for it
sunny, slight breeze, and not hot
my two little ones loved every minute of it
we had a rainy rainy day last saturday
i decided to take the kids to see mr. popper's penguins
it was super cute
did you notice who mauryn has in her arms?

here's a hint... baby addie had to come along to the movie
mauryn informed me that addie LOVES penguins so she had to see the movie
i am glad they didn't charge me admission for addie
she was very well behaved in the theater
her mother mauryn made sure of it
as you can see from the picture safety first
addie has her own car seat and was safely buckled in for the ride
one of her besties has glasses
i guess she was thinking she needed a pair too
 summer bucket list... yes!
 i have been in a bit of organization mode when it comes to our school room
we have been doing some rearranging and making some additions
i am so excited to finally have some white boards and a big chalkboard
now that we are in an actual room i can set up landon and mauryn's work boxes in a way that will be much more effective for them
 lance wanted s'more egg rolls on fathers day
as we were working on our assembly of the egg rolls i caught this little one sneaking some chocolate chips
she just couldn't wait
i tried my egg roll with white chocolate chips since i love all things white chocolate and it was divine. 
 one of the things on our summer bucket list was to make a PVC sprinkler
landon couldn't wait to get his hands on his dads drill
usually we hide it from him
he likes to drill holes in things like garbage cans
this activity was right up his alley
 the shoe racks we are using for our work boxes were white
i was fine with them being white
until i saw lindsey had painted hers cute colors
when i picking up sprinkler supplies i bought some spray paint
i was too lazy to take them apart so landon and i just worked with them set up
they turned out fine
i think i might now have a crush on spray paint
it was easy to use, dried fast, and my kids can help
 our dog harley is so patient
mauryn likes to pretend he is a horse about once a day

 sonic happy hour = happiness
 my kids think rolling down a hill is the bomb

 when landon was drilling for the sprinkler he got a little drill happy
we had to do a little do over with the sprinkler
we had the extra pvc pipe
landon asked for some pool noodles and turned the pipes into swords
thanks to his warrior camp experience he is a little obsessed with making swords
 we spent wednesday at a local splash park with some friends
it was hot 
standing under the dumping bucket was the perfect spot for these boys
 sprinkler in action over the slide
i love how many different ways the kids have put together the sprinkler
this is their favorite
they fly down and off the slide


 we attended a birthday party for this little guys mom
i finally gave up the little guy for a bit so my boy could get some snuggle time in
i love that he loves babies
landon spent a few hours a day last week in basketball camp
he was a little nervous going in on the first day but he loved camp
he is already asking to go back next year

how was your week? did you do anything fun?

OK...what is blog sugar?? And how do I see you there?

It's so funny. I just had an argument with my mom about instagram. She doesn't get it. She hates it when I post it on my fb.

I love it so.
