a week recap - Summer {days 36-40}

I always plan our week on Sunday night. The kids {mostly Savannah} go to the calendar every day to see what we are doing. The thing is, this week I only planned 2 days. We have been winging it almost every day, and I am not totally in love with how it turned out. If you would have told me at the beginning of the Summer I would live by a schedule/calendar, I would not have believed you. This doesn't mean we are overly busy, it just means that I like to have a game plan now. 
Monday was one of those days I didn't plan a darn thing. We ended up going to lunch with Paul, getting cupcakes at The Sweet Tooth Fairy, and heading to Barnes and Noble to read. It wasn't thrilling, but it was something to do. When we got home, I let them have a water fight while I talked to my neighbor.
We had a picnic and Mountain View Park splash pad with friends on the agenda for Tuesday. You would think my kids were really deprived or something, because I have never seen them so excited over a lunch from home. I let them pick out all of the messy food I hate buying, because I knew they would be eating it outside...then swimming. Devin was most excited about his powder donuts, and Sabrina was double fisting the Cheeto's Puffs.
This splash pad was super busy, but honestly it doesn't make me want to stay away. My kids loved it, and Savannah especially loved the play structure attached to it. We were there for over 3 hours, and the kids still weren't ready to go...soooo, I totally bribed them with Hokulia Shave Ice to smooth things over.
Wednesday Paul made plans with the kids to go to Despicable Me 2. Yes, it is a shame we are just getting around to seeing this movie. We loved it, kids did fabulous, and by the time we got home it was naps. 
You know what the highlight {if you can even call it that} of Thursday was!? Dr. Cooper the kitty is sick. So, every time the kids went to play in the toy room, Devin would come back to tell me I had more throw up to clean up. Argggh. 
Today...well...I had zero plans, but luckily my friend Kendahl must have known to email and invite us to the farmer's market!

Next week I am not going to let this kind of lamesauce happen again. I will go back to scheduling something every day, because it is what makes this Mommy happy.

PS July 30th...we are having our play group at Seven Peaks for all ya'll who have the Pass of All Passes! We will be there at 9:30 AM, and staying until the babies need naps. We will love to see you there.

Your kids are so dang cute, even when asking to see the dinosaurs every 2.5 minutes. :) Thanks for coming to hang out today! And we haven't seen Despicable Me 2 yet, even though the first one is a household favorite. One of these days.
