Playing at the pool with Brooklyn and Branson

Coloring a Legos Masterpiece...because everything is awesome.

Snuggle time while watching TV

Can't leave Weston out!

Our last summer movie club movie


Making Slime

I jumped on Pinterest to find a good indoor activity. It has been hot! I found a recipe to make my own flubber. This stuff was pretty cool and kept the kids entertained for a while! 



There is an awesome new kid place that opened in Frisco called The COOP. While John took the big kids to a volunteer event at church, I snuck away with the boys to meet a friend. This place was so much fun! Grayson and Weston played for about 3 hours straight without whining or crying or saying they were ready to leave. It was fun and definitely a place to go back to! 

Three hours of nonstop play ended in a super long nap time (which meant I got to catch a few zzzz's too!)


A Little Playtime for Mama

One of the things I love about my job is the weekend getaways. Thanks to John for watching the crazies while I snuck away for a girls' weekend at a swanky resort in Dallas! We spent the days hanging by the pool, listening to some amazing training and enjoying fancy dinners. Love it!

Hanging by the pool!

The fearless Meredith and Christy

We couldn't stop laughing at this guy - checking lyrics while singing. Shame on you!

It was fun to come home to these sweet faces making dinner.

Cannot wait for next year!


Little Picasos

Our kids love to paint. My type A threatens to come out when I think about the kids painting in my house. So thank you to the brilliant people at Crayola who created sidewalk paint. I'm willing to pay far too much for something that simplifies my life (and keeps my house paint free). 



Strikz does a kids bowl free thing in the summer so we thought it would be a great idea to take the kiddos! It was made clear that our kids are not quite ready for bowling. They didn't understand the whole "we take turns" concept.

Look at that form!


It's a team thing

A lotta bowling shoes!

After a game and a half, we gave up and let the kids go "play" games. I don't even think they realized that they needed tokens.

I worry that this will be a sight in our future.


Dallas Arboretum

I spent part of the day at the Dallas Arboretum in the children's area. It was so much fun! We met some friends and their kiddos there. 

Hanging in the turtle eggs. 

The boys loved the touch screen games

Sadly this is the best pic we got of the kids together.
