One week down

The goal this summer is to have an outing a day because, well, a busy 3 year old is a happy 3 year old. And a happy 3 year old makes the whole family happy. Money is tight (blah, blah, what else is new) and so we are on the lookout for fun, free (or at least super cheap), and local activities. We are taking advantage of the time off and the great weather to explore as many parks, playgrounds, museums, and children's activities as we can this summer.

This week we visited the children's "show" at Bella Terra, the lake, the library and Atlantis park. We spent every afternoon in the pool and had a dinner "picnic" every night. I even got in a few hours by myself to run errands and maybe slip in a pedicure while Rosa was here on Tuesday. The days have flown by and have been full of sun and plenty of water. Everyone is enjoying taking things a little more slowly and discovering new adventures- just what summer is all about.

first day, far behind, and catching up

My first official day off of the summer and I am tired in that got stuff accomplished, had fun, soaked up the sun and made the most of my day kind of way. I organized the garage a bit, visited the dentist, took the kids to a children's event, made smoothies, played for hours in the sun and water, made a Target run, barbecued and had a dinner picnic in the backyard with all my boys, and kissed everyone goodnight before 6. Time for ice cream, a little internet-ing, and Mr. Grey. All in all a good day.

I am so far behind in keeping this blog up to date but I have made my self a promise that this ball will get rolling tomorrow. Or the next day. Well, at least this week, anyway.
a bucket of water  +  Baby Beck = a good half an hour of relaxing in a lounge chair

Pulled in many directions these past couple of weeks as work winds down and the temperature rises. So many photos, so many projects and so much to do. Hopefully I'll be in a groove by the end of the week.

Excited to start a new project. Hoping to find the time to get it underway this week.
