Last week, Ashlyn and I went to a tea party for girls. She looks a bit timid because she was. I'm not sure what her problem was at first.?. She wanted me to be right beside her. Eat with her. Everything. I enjoyed being her side kick but I was finally able to join the other moms while the girls had their own little party. Thanks Anne and Sierra for the fun time!
Sunday morning I went into Matthew's room to wake him up and open his window blinds. I quickly told him that there were eagles right outside! Two of them! Matthew jumped out of bed to see. Mike said to get the camera! They didn't stay long because they were scared by the road traffic. Neat!!!
With it being the last week of summer vacation, our calendar kept filling up! Not that we tried to leave fun events for this week, no, it just happens that way. We've said on and off all summer about doing something with my mom and sisters. It happened that if we really wanted to get it done, then Monday it would have to be! After our very busy weekend with helping at the Nicaragua Fundraiser, church, baptism service and then ending by a camp fire with friends ... Monday came fast! I got the laundry going early and then met at mom's to go to French Creek Pool with family! The kids had a blast and the sunshine was nice and sunny for us to all get another dose of that good ol' Vitamin D! :)
We made the most of our day and did not rush home. Thank you ladies for sharing the day in the sun with us!!!
Tuesday we were home for most of the day catching up with house chores. We are still picking some green beans and our tomatoes are doing well. The green growing lawn needed mowed too!
We were up bright and early again on Wednesday morning to head to the shore! We have not taken a family trip to the beautiful ocean this summer and so Hadassah, Matthew and I were excited to get our toes in the sand! :) (Thank you Jody for keeping Ashlyn for me! And thanks to hubby for keeping her in the eve!) The mom's and their girls (some from Hadassah's school class) planned day to all go the beach together. We had it planned for last week but it rained. We rescheduled and what a lovely day it turned out to be!!! Full sunshine! Wild waves! Tanned skin! Appling plenty of sunscreen! Pizza!
The girls had a total blast in the water all day!
I took Matthew along too and he had fun with Andrew. I'm sad that I forgot to get a picture on the boys together! :/
Once again, Hadassah and Courtney had a fun day together!!!
When it was time to leave, the girls requested that we pick them up at the curb! :)
Now today it's a day at home cleaning and trying to take a breather! I'm tempted to make some peach salsa with the extra peaches we have right now?.? The kids are playing with cousins one more time before school begins. Our weekend is still open and event free ... and that sounds just perfect to me! Enjoy the few mornings of sleeping in and the summer free schedule for a few more days!!!
