Friday started with a play date for Jason during the afternoon. That always works out for me because I get things done when Jason has someone to play with. :)
On Saturday we hung out at the house and did a lot of work outside. It was also the day we had fun with the mega bubbles!
In the evening we celebrated Gabrielle's birthday party. It was such a cool party... circus themed. There were games and tickets and prizes and a pinata and a clown that made the most fantastic balloon creations!
Sunday was another day spent outside. The neighbors were at the house all day and we are working on playing TOGETHER. There was a lot of bickering and whining and tattling. Boys are drama! But they eventually got around to figuring it out and giggling and laughing and having a good time.
Sunday evening we took our first family bike ride. Mike borrowed a bike from his cousin since we haven't been able to find one yet that is the right size for him AND in our price range. We had a great time and the kids went further than they thought they would be able to go. It was so much fun and I can't wait to do it again!
We finished our day at Dairy Queen... because it just seemed right!
Monday we went to the parade and picked up some friends along the way. Good times!
We then told all the neighborhood kids to come to the house at 3:00 for homemade ice cream, mega bubbles and sidewalk paint! They came. We ate and played. Memories were made!
There was also a lot of scootering, we grilled everything (strawberries and pineapple grilled... YUM!) and I planted my garden. We enjoyed the sun and all got a little tan... and some pink too. We ate, we worked, we relaxed and we had fun.
I'm looking forward to more great times this summer!!
