Weekend Review

I loved this long weekend! Friday the kids were out of school! Since daddy works from home on Fridays we had to get out of the house. I decided we would go to legoland since we hadn't been there in a while and because we have a membership until August. 

The kids were super pumped!












 
 
Henry was so excited this trip because he is 4, which means he can drive the little cars! He has waited his entire life for this moment!


 
 
 

Lucy was tall enough to ride this ride by herself! She ended up sharing the ride with random little girl in line who actually goes to our church!

Henry was stuck with me...

Obviously, he was thrilled!
 

 After a fun day of playing in grapevine, we headed back home to eat dinner with daddy. Pizza for the win!

Saturday, we had a work day. We headed to home depot as a family and then Lucy and I hit the grocery store! Lucy wanted to look at shopkins and if she would have known that the walmart was out I doubt she would have gone!

After grocery shopping and lunch, we started working on the yard. Do you know what I love about yard work? It's instant gratification! New mulch and a few new plants instantly improved our yard.
 
Sunday, we were running late! Henry and I argued on what he was going to wear to church. He didn't want to wear any of the shorts that I picked out. I told him to go upstairs and get dressed. He came down with inside-out gym pants on... And I said, "great, let's go!" I threw Lucy's hair up in a messy bun and we hit the road!

Monday we headed to the Coble's to enjoy their company, cooking and pool! Jonathan got Lucy's glasses for free through a website and she thinks they are the greatest thing ever! I think she's the greatest thing ever...



My love.
 

My sister.

Our baby boys!




And here I am today. I'll be doing laundry if you need me today.

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.

I hope to make a quick trip up to NWA this summer as well.

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.

Friday Favorites


Henry had his last day of prek-3 yesterday! That went fast! He has grown so much this year! 

Look at that little face! 


 Comparison shot- last day vs. first day. (look at Jonathan's hair growth too! Radiation has nothing on his hair!)

First Day of school this year vs. First day of school last year!
Last day of school 2016 vs. First day of school 2014


Watermelon season...
If I had to pick one food to eat the rest of my life it would be watermelon. Also, how do you cut a watermelon? My sister peels it like this. This was the first time I tried it and it was pretty successful. There's really no good, mess free way to cut a watermelon.


Summer school. I have to come up with a schedule for school work this summer. I'd hate for Lucy to lose all her knowledge over the summer!

She requested this book set. I ordered it this morning, we will be busy reading this summer!



 


I also amazoned a few workbooks for her. 




And don't forget brother. Henry will be busy learning this summer too.
