We had a wonderful weekend full of time with friends and tons of outside playtime. Here's a peek into what we did: 


+ It was National Donut Day, so I took the boys (in their jammies, natch) to Krispy Kreme for a sugary breakfast. They had so much fun! 

+ We had slow morning at home, which was a nice change of pace. The boys played with their water beads and tools and enjoyed doing that for nearly an hour! It was glorious. (I just put them in cheap little Tupperware bins and got smart after this picture and put a beach towel underneath them.) 

+ Brandon was home before lunch (thank you, Summer Fridays!). I left soon after he got home for a massage, and while there, they told me they had a cancellation for a facial right after my massage and asked if I wanted it. I quickly said, "YES!" and had an unexpected afternoon of pampering while the boys had fun playing at home together. 

+ Friday night, we had dinner at The Station, followed by another unexpected fun thing: a little festival hosted by our local Chamber of Commerce, complete with a bounce house, face painting, a limbo contest, and more. 


+ Brandon played in an annual 36-hole golf tournament. Our friend Chris joined him, so his wife, Liz, and their daughters Peyton and Parker came over for the day to swim and have lunch! It was such a great day! 

My swimsuit is here and sunglasses are here

My boys' swimsuit trunks are here and rash guards are here

+ Brandon got home from the tournament around bedtime and we all crashed before 8:30 p.m. It had been a long day for everyone and we were all wiped! 


+ We went to church, then came home and the boys swam in the pool while I did laundry, unloaded the dishwasher and picked up around the house. We had a random summer storm that came in as quickly as it went out, so we spent the boys' nap time watching that roll through. 

+ Our evening was spent with more outdoor time and preparing for the week ahead. The boys both have swimming lessons this week, so I'm going to be a full-time chauffeur this week, but it's worth it! 

Have great weeks, everyone!

  5. What a fun weekend! My Madeline loves water beads too and plays with them forever. Glad you got some pampering time!

  6. I'm going to have to invest in those beads. It's so hot there just isn't much to do outside (unless it involves water) that this would entertain my kiddo for a bit.

  7. Umm massage AND facial, what a treat! Just added your suit to my cart, thanks for linking it!
