Another summer weekend

It has been a crazy week so I am behind on my post, but better late than never. We had a busy but good weekend. It was my weekend to work so Joe had the boys during the day and then we did some fun things in the evenings.

I snapped an early morning picture of Owen before I was off to work. So sweet.


I worked all day and so did Joe and when I got home I was exhausted. We spent the evening just hanging out.

I worked while the boys were at home.

After work I met Joe and the boys at Fawn-Doe-Rosa. We had so much fun seeing all the animals.

There were so many baby animals too.

Then we went to the Drive-in for dinner. It was yummy! We threw way too many pennies in the water fountain too.

Then it was home for bed time.

I worked again, but Joe got donuts for breakfast before I left. The boys loved them!

They went to church in the morning and then nap. I actually made it home from work before both boys woke up.

We played outside and then it was bath night. I let the boys try a bath bomb my boss gave me. They loved it!


After bath Joe helped Liam and Owen work in a pattern with his screws and drill. So much focus!

Then it was bed time for the boys and feeling exhausted I took a bath and then went to bed too.

We had a great weekend! Hope your week is turning out to be a great one!

Birthday fun and Father’s Day 2019

We had a really fun weekend filled with friends and family.

After work we spent a little time with the boys before bringing them to my parent’s house for a sleepover. Liam helped uncle Blake pack for his next trip.


Then we were off to a graduation party. The party was so nice. The food was yummy, the weather was sunny, and the company was great.


After that we were off to celebrate my best friend Annie’s birthday. It was so much fun spending time with friends and dancing the night away!

We tried to sleep in. Joe was up around 6:30 and I tossed and turned from 6:30-8:30 before finally deciding to get up.

Once we pulled ourselves together we got to cleaning the house (me) and working on the yard (Joe) while the boys were gone.

When I went to pick up the boys we had to take a ride on the new dirt bikes my dad got. Then it was home for lunch and nap time. I also took a good solid nap.


We spent the rest of the day just hanging at home and going outside when we could. Liam decided he wanted his haircut so both boys got their summer cuts.

We had a lazy evening. Once the boys were in bed we watched Murder Mystery on Netflix and it was pretty good. Then we went to bed too.

Happy Father’s Day!!

Joe really wanted to get some things done around the house so we spent the morning with him, gave him his gifts, and then were off to church.


After church the boys and I went to my college friend Jeremiah’s house to meet up with some of my other college friends (Ashli and Matt) before they move to California. It was so good to see everyone. I got to meet Jeremiah and Lauren’s new baby, everyone got to see/meet my boys, and it was just fun catching up.

Then it was naps in the car on the way home. Once home Owen went back down for nap but Liam did not. Liam and Joe ran to Walmart quick and then we were all off to the Sawmill for pizza for Father’s day.

We love Sawmill pizza and it is the best place to bring kids to eat.


The kids had fun playing with all their cousins.

After that we went home for bed time since all of us were exhausted.

We had a super fun weekend! Happy Father’s day to all the dads out there! 

Pool, rides, sun, and FUN!

We had a busy and fun weekend spending a majority of our time outside!

After work we went to my parent’s for dinner and to swim. It was so hot out and the pool was just what we needed.

The kiddos all had a picnic together (my parent’s had my niece and nephew for the weekend). Uncle Blake hung out with us too!


Liam had a major meltdown when it was time to leave because he was having so much fun.

We hustled home for bed time for two very tired boys.

I had my last Saturday morning circuit for the summer. My schedule is too crazy to keep it on. It was a hot and sweaty circuit! Joe took the boys for a run while I was gone.


When I got home we went outside to play. The boys wanted to have a snack outside too.

Then the boys and I met my mom, my grandma, and Brynn at our local Park Art Fair to do some shopping/looking. It was a lot of fun. The boys and I shared some Holy Donuts and they were delicious!

We went home for lunch and the boy’s nap. When they both woke up we went to our neighboring town for Pea Soup Days. I will be out of town during our town’s festival so I wanted to be able to take the boys on some rides.

It was a lot of fun. There weren’t many rides (which was perfect) and there really weren’t that many people there at all (which was also perfect).

We had a lot of fun. Owen even went on a few rides, but did not want to go on the merry-go-round.


We let Liam play a game too and he won a little prize.


After the rides we went to a surprise birthday party for one of Joe’s best friends. We got there early which gave the boys some time to warm up.

Slowly more friends trickled in and it was so fun to see everyone and the kiddos together.

We left past the boys bedtime so they both were exhausted and ready for bed when we got home.

Joe went for a run with Liam early in the morning and then I took both boys for a run a little later. Liam wanted to run too so he ran a little and rode in the stroller a little. The boys did some yoga when we got home and then we were off to church.

After church it was nap time for the boys and cleaning time for Joe and I. We straightened up our disaster of a room.

After nap the boys were both a little tired so we soaked up some snuggles and had a lazy afternoon.

It was rainy out so we spent the evening playing inside. Then it was bath night and bed time.

We had a lot of fun this weekend. Have a wonderful week!

Feels like summer!

I had to work this weekend which meant the boys got a 4 day weekend!

When I got home from work we spent some time outside because the weather was so nice!


A college friend of mine stopped by for a quick visit which was cool. We had fun catching up a little before she had to go.

We had a relaxing evening and I went to bed early because I wasn’t feeling great and also had to work the next day.

Joe had the boys home for a lazy morning while I was off to work.

After work I met them at my parent’s house for some swimming and play time with Sherrie who was visiting.

We spent the whole evening outside. My dad helped Liam golf and Owen wanted to try to.

I ended up taking Owen home before Joe and Liam to put him to bed and get myself ready for bed after an exhausting day.

Joe took the boys to the cafe while I was at work. We were supposed to go to my nieces birthday after work but I was feeling not well at all and just needed to rest.

I again went to bed early hoping to feel better.

My weekend finally! We had a fun morning just hanging out.


I was feeling a little better and took the boys to my work to meet my coworkers. Liam was shy but Owen soaked up all the attention.

Then we went home for lunch and nap time. I took a nap too. Then it was outside time!

I was able to get some cute pictures of the boys in their matching outfits.

Owen is such a free spirit and Liam is so focused. He loves shooting his bow.

Then it was dinner time, relax time, and the bed time.

We did some coloring in the morning. I found a huge book of paper which the boys loved.


Then, I last minute decided to take the boys to the zoo. I still wasn’t feeling the best but decided to go anyway.

The weather was beautiful and we had so much fun.

The animals are just so cool!

We even got fun treats and went on the merry-go-round (which Owen hated).

When we got home Joe had picked up a mini pool so we played in that until it started to rain.

The boys were both exhausted after a busy day so we had a relaxing evening snuggling on the couch before bed time.

The boys lucked out with a 4 day weekend! Hope your week is going well!
