Weekend Recap

It seems like the weekends go by so fast.  It’s always Sunday night and it feels like it’s just begun.  I saw a quote today that said “The first 5 days after the weekend are the hardest!”    This is so true – especially in the summer.  Here’s a recap of our fun weekend:

Saturday morning we were able to let the kids sleep in for once, which was really needed after a full week of softball.  Joe had to work so the kids and I headed to our local library and picked out some books.  They found the puppet show area and had a bit of fun there too.

After the library, we attempted our luck with making slime.  It was easier to mix up than I thought it would be, but I will say I don’t think ours was anything like the consistency of the fluffy slime tutorial I watched online.  Regardless, the kids had fun with it so I guess it was a success!

Later Saturday afternoon, we headed down to my parent’s lake house for some swimming and supper.  It was perfect lake weather and the kids had a blast fishing, swimming and frog catching with their cousin.

Sunday morning, this cutie helped me make some cookie bars (mostly so he could taste the dough!).

The girls were cleaning their rooms, and I told Ashton to clean out a basket in his room as well.  Instead of putting things away, he just found a way to attach them to his body.   He came out to the kitchen like this:

Sunday afternoon, I took this sweet girl to softball practice.

I had a church fundraiser meeting at our house later in the afternoon, and then we grilled homemade pizza for supper and relaxed for the rest of the evening.  I actually got to do some reading – it’s been a LONG time since that has happened!  Our friends brought over a box with magic tricks, so we enjoyed a evening magic show from the girls (Ashton got to be the audience helper:).

Lots of softball again this week, so we’ll be doing our best to stay cool as the temps are supposed to be hot again.  Have a great week!
