A long weekend & a swap.

Our weekend just seemed so long. It was David's first full weekend off in a long time.

Saturday we had a birthday party to attend.

Sunday was for relaxing and a quick trip to the grocery store.

Now for a ton of random pictures because that's slowly becoming my Monday thing to do!

Fin & Maddie had a tea party with sweet tea and goldfish.

After the birthday party, we hung out in a friend's backyard playing. Owen went through THREE outfits. He loved the water table.

That's Owen under there! Ha! I kept trying to get him to yell or growl but he just laughed.
And when I wore it, he'd give me kisses and laugh.

I felt a bit patriotic.

The kids apparently made an ice cream pile out of blankets.
I found them sleeping like this.
Maddie's feet are all up in Fin's face, she's wearing black tights and Bella's butt (the cat) is all up in Maddie's face.
They're nuts.

We NEVER have wrapping paper in our house so we improvise. Usually with tissue paper but lately David's gotten more creative.
Brown paper bag + David's drawing skills = a picture she saved to hang on her wall. It was sweet.

That's a fly. In my coffee.  Yup.
This was Friday morning.
Follow me on facebook, I shared my AWESOME (sarcasm) Friday morning here.

Most of the Friday shenanigans that took place were because of these two.

We found a Rollie Pollie!!!
Well, a LOT of them really. They were all over the backyard.

Maddie was the only one brave enough to let it crawl on her.

He is getting so big, guys. So fast!!

Anyway, on to the swap!!
Remember the Sunny Summer Swap with Melissa & Sarah?!
My partner was Ricci of Ricci Explains it All.

This is what she sent:
I can't even describe how great this candle smells!!
I am so in love with everything that came in this box!!
She was so fun to swap with too and send the best card!

You guys definitely need to go say hi to her and see the goodies I sent her way :)

Also, if you haven't yet, go order a Bloggers Do It Better tee!
If the goal isn't met, none of them get printed and nobody gets a shirt! Plus, you just need one cuz well....look at em!!

Go HERE to order.  You can spare $11 to get a cute shirt and to help out a fellow blogger (me). I would greatly greatly appreciate it more than you can possibly imagine.

That's been my weekend. How was yours?

If you do a post about your Sunny Summer Swap, be sure to link it up :)

You got some good swap goodies!!! Yay :)

Love the wrapping paper, the rollie pollies, the "ice cream" pile, & the tea party. Fin w/ the teacup cracked me up!!!

I've never seen a water table like that before, what a cute idea! I think my nephew would love it too! All your pictures are so cute. Looks like you got a lot of awesome goodies from the swap too!

Ricci said...

I'm so glad you liked your gift!!! And I got myself one if those candles as well!!! :)

Heather Leigh said...

Aww what a cute idea with the water table!! Love this! :)

Angi said...

Looks like a fun weekend - your kids are adorable!

It's funny you guys call them rollie pollies...we always called them potato bugs. So funny how people from different areas of the country call them completely different things!

We totally used to catch Rollie Pollies all the time when I was a little kid - so much fun!
