So, I thought I should blog about what we did this summer before I forgot about all of the fun we had. Our mini-trips will be in a separate post soon, but this is just the fun everyday stuff. So, in a nutshell:
We spent a lot of time at the library. Sydney was excited because she got to go to preschool story time "by herself" while I went with Elle to the baby story time. I checked in on Sydney every once in a while and was assured she was good and listened (and even shushed one of the parents who was trying to talk to her and told them that you aren't allowed to talk during story time.) Both girls enjoyed the crafts afterward, although Elle really enjoyed dumping the crayons best.
David replaced the fuel line on his truck because it was leaking. He had to take the bed off to figure this out. I'm sure you are wondering why this is blog worthy. Stick with me. It gets better.
Thanks to our neighbor, it only took about an hour to remove the truck bed.Locally he could get the part for $200. Online he could get it for $60. Well, I guess you know what we did. Yes, ordered it online. It took about a week for it to come in. Until then, David's truck looked like this:
Yes, you are seeing right. That is Duck Tape holding on his taillight. EMBARRASSING! I even offered (begged) to drive him to work, but he wouldn't take me up on it.
We spent a lot of time cooking. The girls loved it, and I loved that it gave us something to do. Sydney has already told me that she gets my recipes (meaning my binder) when I die. Hello- I'm only 28!
We made every possible Home Depot first Saturday workshop. Things we learned:
- Avoid naptime.
- Watch out for thumbs.
- Always choose Dad to be your helper, not Mom.
SONIC HAPPY HOUR!!!Our favorite: Blue Coconut Slush with a lime. (A Sydney concoction, but quite tasty!)
Oh, and Elle learned how to make that really annoying squeaking sound with straw.
We painted our door! Now, instead of being a "weathered white" (Ok, so it really just needed a new paint job) it is black! I haven't taken an after picture, but it is raining, so use your imagination. My Mom and Dad came up to help out - Thanks!!!
Sydney taught Dad the correct way to mow the lawn. You know, because, he needed help.
After many pieces of gum (although I am proud to report, none in the hair!) Sydney learned to blow a bubble!
I spent a good chunk of my time at the gym in order to get rid of some of the chunk and hopefully lessen my migraines. I also tried to do as many fun things as possible with the kids and in the procces, I think I learned to lighten up a bit.
