So I didn't post last week, but I was taking pictures! Now where were we...Oh yes,
Suitcases packed for a weekend with Grammy. All 4 kiddos gone for the weekend while Carl and I celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary!
We took a staycation for the weekend and enjoyed having the whole weekend by ourselves. We spent some time working in the yard and of course
eating lots of yummy food, and more than a few stops at Starbucks. See the chopsticks? We both ate our entire meal with them. No forks. A first for both of us!
We also picked out a new anniversa-tree. The last several years we have planted a tree on our anniversary. They are all in bloom now and are so beautiful.
This year we picked out a Patio Bonfire Peach tree. It is so pink, and so peachy, and so pretty!
A perfect day for a long bike ride! The weather was beautiful and we took a ride on the bike trail.
24 miles plus a picnic lunch. Happy Anniversary to us!
A visit from Grandma and a trip to McDonald's playland.
Ella's "persuasive" letter assignment she brought home from school. Yep, I'm convinced but she still needs to convince her Daddy.
Caleb and Abby took the day off school to go to IHC and Isaac was spending a few days with Grandma. So Carl took Ella to Starbucks for a treat. Hello big brown eyes!
Isaac's crocs after getting caught in the escalators at IHC. (how my child arrived at IHC wearing crocs is a entirely different story!)
I heart skittles. And I heart the little girl who took this picture!
Another load of laundry
First bonfire of the year. Bring on the hotdogs and marshmallows!
Returning books to the library. He can finally reach the book return and loves doing it. And I love sitting in the car not having to get out!
Another accomplishment. No training wheels on his big bike
and a cute Jeep (Lily Pullitzer) at the mall setting right next to this cute girl.
