Summer Fun!

We've had lots of Girl Power so far this summer... and it's been AWESOME!!! Here is Phoebe with 2 of her BFFs all dressed up and ready to party!! I took this pic and laughed about how funny it will be to show them it in 10yrs when they are getting dressed for their proms.

Then I realized that might not be much fun... wow. In 10yrs, my baby is going to a junior in high school. She might be a cheerleader, or a drama queen, or President of her class. She of course, is NOT going to boy crazy... right?!?! See, of course NOT!! lol

After a few hours of playing dress-up, coloring, building blocks, cooking in their kitchen... I decided I needed a break :)

I packed up my car with 5 booster seats and headed to the movies! The lady at the concessions stand totally rocked and instead of giving me one big bucket of popcorn, I was able to get 3 bags for the price of a large. That way, we were paired up with a "popcorn buddy". No fights, no whining, no spilled giant bucket of popcorn.

We saw Kung Fu Panda 2. It was cute.

Alyssa was bummed for about a half a minute because she'd already seen it, but she was excited to see it with her friends this time.

Later that night, the other mommy's came over and hubby whipped up some drinks and we tried to watch Knocked Up. I couldn't believe Carolyn had never seen it!! Well, she still hasn't seen it, because the kiddos were kiddos and it was thundering... get it? Yup... knocked up is not a kids movie. Especially the uncut version!

The fun resumed Monday at the Buttonwood Park Zoo with Phoebe's friends and the Toe Jam Puppet Band! If you've never seen or heard of these guys, check it out. They rock!! The kids love their music. They are hilarious!

It's an hour show, every Monday at the zoo 10:30am and 12:30pm, that costs $5 per family plus zoo admission if you don't have the membership. We packed a lunch and had a blast.

Tuesday was the first official Tuesday Pool Day!! Had and Brae came over for the day and we packed up the car and headed over to see our friends. It was a great day. I was able to hang out with the grown ups while the kids splashed around for hours! I actually had to drag them out for a bit to force food into their little bellies... lol

Here are some of the best shots...

There was the general splashing in the pool.

Then there were the brave few who were willing to try to conquer the diving board! With a little hesitation...

Then, they took the jump!!

All in all, it was an amazing day!  
Yesterday, I was able to whip up the rest of the Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Bacon cookies I had prepped Monday. I had my dad over for dinner and laughed and talked and had fun. This was all after catching up a friend during the afternoon and helping her put together some stuff for the very soon to be baby boy :) So happy for them!

Today, Phoebe requested blueberry scones for breakfast and thankfully, while roaming Luzo's yesterday, I grabbed a can of them for a buck! Score... here you go, hunny. I'm loving this summer stuff!
