We made it!
We actually don't plan a day to go.
We wait for a nice, cool, rain free day.
Then we arrive in the late afternoon.
Less crowd. Perfect weather.
First up. Dinner.
Mamma was happy. : )
Flynn rode a few of the kiddie rides...
And her sister and brother were happy to join her on a few.
While Dad and Mom were happy to watch from the sidelines.
This. Was. Terrifying.
Not only am I no longer pushing a stroller here, but some of those babies I used to push in this very park are taller than I am now!
And as they announced the park would be closing, my super sweet husband made sure to get me my favorite...Funnel Cake and Fresh Squeezed Lemonade.
It was a wonderful afternoon, made even better with our realization that our children are indeed each others best friends.
In other news...
Happy mail is arriving. And I am sloooowly adding fall items to my daily routine.
I mean, what other mug could I drink from while browsing thorough one of my favorite magazines, which is filled with all things fall?
One night last week Flynn invited her sweet friends and cousins over for some summer fun!
It was a last minute thing, and I was thankful they could come!
They played, jumped in the kiddie pool, used the swing set, and ran through the sprinkler.
The highlight of the evening, though, were the awesome water balloons her friend Josiah brought!
So thankful to Rhett for entertaining, and for Peyton for pushing the swings!
We had hot dogs and macaroni and cheese...
And the hit of the night?
Make Your Own Brownie Sundaes!
It was an easy, fun way for the little ones to have some summer playtime together!
The rest of the week involved first grade lesson planning...Yay!...a hair cut and coloring...Amen! Goodbye dark roots...A date night with friends...So nice!...and let's be honest here...a few cozy afternoon naps.
Oh. And a week wouldn't be complete without some baking!
Peyton tried a new recipe for Triple Berry Muffins, and they were incredible! I
I found the recipe over at a friend's lovely blog right here.
The other muffins are an old favorite of ours.
The Double Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe can be found here.
Muffins are a great school morning breakfast, or after school snack.
We pair them with some fresh fruit, and are all set to go!
And for all my friends that have sent your littles to school, enjoy your weekend!
We have another week to go, but will be preparing by cleaning and decorating the schoolroom, and updating the computers.
Thanks for visiting!
Thank you also for the very warm welcome you gave to my Madison's new blog.
She was so excited and thankful!
Have a cozy weekend with your people, my friends!
