Insta Friday

happy sun shiny friday!
we might hit 75 degrees today... yes!
it could finally start to feel like summer.

i am linking up with jeannett for insta friday.

here's a little peek at our week:

 this girl and her doll, addie. 
she loves that they have matching pj's.
addie tags along often to run errands, go to the park, etc..
except if she gets in trouble or didn't sleep at night then her mom {aka mauryn} puts her to bed.
amazing how much trouble that addie can be some days.

 tinker bell with bed head.
it is not unusual for mauryn to go from pj's to dress up clothes
tinker bell is her favorite right now
 this old man has been part of our family for 15 years
mauryn loves him
he sleeps on her bed most of the day
she especially loves if he crawls up on her lap for a little snuggle
 we went to watch our neighbor compete in boise's ironman 70.3 last weekend
we had to park by the beach and climb over the other side of this hill {there is a path}
pat's mother exclaimed this is no hill it is a mountain
it was quite a little hike
 my girlies waiting for the swim to start
they figured if they sat up there they might get a better view
i think my girls had the right idea
 while we were waiting for the bikers we visited powells sweet shop
i heart this store
so many reminders of favorite treats from when i was a child
 mauryn taking a break in the shop
i told you addie went everywhere
 what movie is playing in the sweet shop?
charlie and the chocolate factory of course
 morgan enjoy her sweets while we wait for pat on his bike
 i heart white chocolate
i would pick it any day over dark chocolate or milk chocolate
when i was in the sweet shop and saw a white chocolate toblerone bar i was thrilled
it was worth every little calorie
 as we were walking to the bike/run transition point we passed this cute brick house
it was the first brick house in boise
i love that they had signs telling about the house and preserving that bit of history
 bike to run transition point
at this point the athletes had done a 1.2 mile swim and finished a 56 mile bike 
now they were headed out for a 13.1 mile run
 someone was getting a little bit tired 
 sunday after felt like our first taste of summer weather
by late afternoon the sun was shining and it was warm
the kids thought it was warm enough to break out the pool and slip and slide
brr! glad the kids don't care they had a blast
 even if no one would race him landon loved the slip and slide
 i found these two snuggled up together one morning
mauryn had gotten up to get a drink and then decided to just crash with landon on the floor
 tired girl + blanket+ fingers = 2 hour nap
 landon has recently discovered justin bieber
now he has the fever

 my kids love any type of games 
when lance's parents were here last weekend they spent hours playing old favorites and learning some new card games
 my boy loves water balloons
he will spend hours a day filling them 
the kids had friends over the other day which meant an all out water balloon fight
which turned into a squirt gun fight and a bucket of water throwing fight
the kids were full of smiles and giggles
the pay off of saying yes more often
 i love that it has been cool enough that we can keep our windows open at night
it has been glorious for sleeping
i am thankful for each day i don't have to turn my air conditioner on
we woke up the other morning and we were all FREEZING!
the temperature had really dropped the night before 
when mauryn got dressed she put on a wool sweater
it was cold but i am thinking that was a little much 
 mauryn is constantly singing
sometimes you can make out a familiar song but most of the time it is some song she has created by combining parts from her favorite songs
you surely can't sing without headphones on using the cord as your microphone
our neighbor across the street has a few cool ride on toys
when he is outside cruising the other kids rush over to eye the cars/jeeps
mauryn and coop are checking out this cool rig hoping for a ride or maybe a chance to drive it

how was your week?

I am so excited we are having summerish weather today! When i read the beginning of your post I realized that I always whine to you that it is too cold here...haha...I think it is b/c you are one of my few friends that loves sunshine and water as much as I do. I also love that Landon has Bieber Fever!:)

Looks like lots and lots of summer fun! But white chocolate? Not a fan, I am a dark chocolate girl all the way :-)
