Happy Friday, friends! Hope you've enjoyed a lovely week! Here are some highlights of what's been going on around here since I shared with you this time last week...
1. MARVELous Day-te!
While our girls had an invitation for a fun day and evening away with family, Jason took a vacation day from work. We enjoyed an ENTIRE DAY date!! So refreshing and wonderful!! We went to the movies at 11:30am on a weekday (I was nearly pinching myself!) to see Guardians of the Galaxy.
We loved it! It was the perfect mix of super hero epicness + HILARITY! Better yet, it offered an opportunity for me to sit beside my hubby, holding his hand for a whopping two hours, uninterrupted! *Sheer happiness*
Note: We purposely saw this movie while the girls had other plans. It's PG-13 for a reason. I wouldn't recommend it for a child. (As a mama, I had to add that. ;))
2. A FULL 17-Day Trip Report is Now Up!
Jason has officially published our Disney World Family Vacation Day 17 video, completing the series of our last trip to the World!!! He did such a fantastic job with it! I thought this last vid would be a sad one, but my hubby worked his magic and created a truly beautiful video that had happy tears pouring down my face! If you haven't already, I hope you'll stop by Eat, Sleep, Dis, Repeat and check it out! I want to thank all of you who have left such sweet comments for us there, and have clicked that "thumbs up" letting us know you enjoyed the vids! It has made it all the more fun to share!
Be sure to subscribe to our family YouTube channel for future videos ...coming soon! ;)
3. Family Time
My Aunt's grandchildren and their family came to town last weekend. She hosted an open house allowing extended family to visit. It was a lovely afternoon of chatting with everyone, and these sweet cousins enjoyed some fun in the sun together...
My nephew and my girlies, the kiddos posing with their Great Aunt, fun with ladder ball, and ring toss time!
4. Curiosity is a beautiful thing!
Princess has been enjoying helping her Grandma Kathy at her in-home daycare a few hours a day this summer, leaving Little One and I some precious "just the two of us" time. She requested we spend some of that time at our fabulous local library. She always goes with a theme in mind that she's curious to learn more about. I adore her curiosity and hunger for learning!
This week she was wanting to learn more about insects, so we found books on all sorts of bugs - fireflies, butterflies, dragonflies, even mosquitos! (She wants to know what they're good for! ;)) Then, we spotted a book called Crafts for Kids Who Are Learning About Insects! PERFECTION!! We are learning & crafting it up here this week! ;)
5. "Sunny" the Flower & its Sand Pail Flower Pot Home
This week while Jason was mowing, he spotted a wildflower growing in our yard that was Little One's favorite color and all! She was delighted and decided she'd like to "keep it" (as some neighbor boys have been known to pick our flowers). So, we turned her sand pail into a flower pot! Summertime is so sweet!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a terrific upcoming weekend!
Join me in the adventures to come!
