1. We went to the beach one morning last week with some friends. We got their nice and early so there weren't a lot of people there. There was some hole digging, some wave jumping and tossing seaweed at each other. Lots of giggles and lots of smiles...and no sunburns! Woohoo!
3. Emily had her camp carnival on the grounds at our community pool. The weather was horrific in the morning and I thought they would cancel it but since it was already the rescheduled date, they still had it and it was just scaled down. It was so hot we could hardly stand it and the kids only spent like 20 minutes at the carnival part before wanting to go to the pool. This will be the last year that my girls take part in this camp. Katherine did it from age 3-6 and Emily will be too old next summer so we'll have to move onto something else. That seems to be the theme lately...my girls getting too big for things...
4. Happy 11 Year Anniversary to us! Katherine was very sick on our anniversary so we didn't do anything at all but take care of her. It was one of those strange days where the calendar said it was our anniversary but it didn't feel like it at all. On Saturday she was much better so my fabulous mom came up for a couple hours and Mark and I scooted out to dinner. We just went to to a low key Mexican place and reflected on the past year and all the changes that are to come. We don't go out just the two of us more than maybe 3x a year so it's always nice that when we are together we find out we can still carry on a conversation and laugh!
5. I still giggle about this a week later... I had to give Emily some cough medicine and this is what transpired:
Me: Here Emily, have your cough medicine.
Emily: Ugh gross! Is that the honey medicine? I don't like that. It taste like bears!
For real. She said it taste like BEARS. You can't make this up. I still am laughing about it.
Happy rest of your week!
