Summer Fun

With the temperatures scorching and every day looking like a thunderstorm (ALTHOUGH IT NEVER RAINS, seriously!), this momma is searching high and low for things to do! So, while the kids slept on Friday, I turned our dining room table into a fort. They brought their pillows in, buddies, books and toys. I think they had a great time!!

We had a SUPER time on the 4th of July. However, would you believe I didn't take one picture, and DANG my kids looked cute yesterday. Oh well, taking the picture probably would have led to some sort of anxiety attack because they weren't looking the right direction. In the morning, we had a BBQ at my mom's house, we had Italian sausage that Pat boiled in beer before grilling, YUM! Tyler stayed with my mom last night, but Pat, Jackson and I didn't stop partying. We headed over to hang out with Jaclyn and Claire's family. There was TONS of good food, lots of swimming and laughter galore! When we left there, we were able to catch a SPECTACULAR fireworks show at the Moon Valley Country Club. We took a blanket over to the golf course, there were maybe 20 other families there, IT WAS INCREDIBLE! Jackson loved it, exclaiming that each and every one was his very favorite. Needless to say he is a little cranky today because I think 9:45 is the LATEST my child has ever been awake, but we are just lying low and getting ready for all of our parties this week!

P.S. We found my OLD SCHOOL Gameboy during the move, and Jackson is SET on beating Mario this weekend. He is a little ANNOYED that when you shut it off it doesn't save your progress, and I find it HYSTERICAL! I am sure moms of the 80's and 90's would have given ANYTHING for a memory card! As annoying as video games may be to some people, at least you know making your child shut it off isn't deleting all of their progress!
