Our church threw a luncheon for all of the Mom's who've recently had a baby and/or who are currently expecting a new baby as a way to get to know each other and the nursery staff who take care of our babies each Sunday morning! It was really fun to go and it was also really fun to pack each kid a little lunch. I might end up being that mom who send their kid to school with love notes and heart shaped food, just sayin.
We had a heat wave and our top floor condo gets scorching hot so Harper and I decided to send this picture to Daddy at work letting him know we were surviving. Sweatily surviving.
The poor kids were all sweating just from being upstairs so I let them play with/drink ice water and they pretty much loved it.
That night we babysat our sweet little buddy Miles for a couple of hours and I think it's safe to say that Harper adores him. We did discover her to be a little paci thief though that little stinker.
Friday we got packed and ready to go away for the weekend and in case you missed it and are interested, you can read about our weekend HERE.
My awesome family took all three kids for the weekend so that we could get away and I got lots of cute pictures, like the one above, of all of the fun they were having!
We also sent them some pictures of cool things that we'd see that reminded us of them which my Mom said they loved.
Sunday afternoon was spent together after not seeing each other for two days. It was a great weekend away but it was also good to be back together again as a complete family.
We're all really enjoying "frappy hour" at Starbucks this week...even Harper.
That night we set up the boys new bunk beds! It was time to upgrade them to twin beds and we need to start saving some room in our little condo so bunk beds was the logical way to go. They love them!
Monday morning I got a crappy (literally) "welcome back to reality" and got to stay home and clean up poo all day. The life of a mom I tell ya...
I did get to enjoy this girl's cuteness all day though and she was very happy to be back home with her Mama! That's my girl!
We tackled the dreaded grocery shopping that night which we all pretty much hate but the trip is made better when you get to "drive" your cart.
After being locked in and having a crappy Monday I took the kids out the next day to enjoy donuts and we had planned on going to the park but it was too windy for that. Bummer, but hey at least we got donuts out of it!
My sister sent me the picture (of baby me) on the left saying that Carter was definitely my mini me. She didn't even know that I had snapped the picture on the right of Carter a few weeks before so of course, I had to share. He's the little boy version of me for sure.
