The summer has been flying by but we have been trying to make the most it. It has been a very busy month since the last time I posted! Since then, we have:
-had a visit from my parents for Fathers’ Day Weekend; Penny got to play at the pool, ride her first carousel, and enjoy more play time with my parents. We tried out a few new restaurants while they were in town as well and now have our go-to place when we are in the mood for cajun/southern-style seafood (think po’ boys and boils).
-seen Derrick’s dad and sister the following weekend, who came for a visit mainly so Derrick’s dad could help us do some planning and work in the yard. Penny had an especially fun time with her aunt, I think. 🙂
flown (P and I) to see my parents; my dad was in a local theatre production of Oklahoma! and since I wasn’t able to go see him in his other shows in the last year or two, I thought it would be fun to go (DQ was traveling for work so he couldn’t come with us). We had a great time with my parents, my sister and her family, and my aunt and uncle who came in town to see the show as well. My sister and I went to the show together while my mom and brother-in-law watched my and her kids, respectively. It was a lot of fun and obviously my dad was awesome and I’m so glad I was able to go home for a noisy weekend and a house full of running and screaming kiddos!
spent the next weekend (last weekend, but actually starting last Thursday) with my sister, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew who came for a visit. So we had 3 kids under 5, yet again and we spent the weekend cramming as much crazy kiddo fun into the days: the zoo, the aquarium, a Gwinnett Braves baseball game, the pool, the mall/another carousel ride, and the park! It was rather exhausting but it was so good to be able to get together and let the cousins hang out.
Phew. I’m kind of tired just typing all that! But since my days of not working are dwindling faster than I’d like, I am enjoying getting to do so much with Derrick and Penny and our families. We’ve got some more adventures planned for the last few weeks of my summer before P goes back to daycare and I start my new job, so I’m going to soak it all in 🙂
