Our weekends during the summer start on Friday, since Lee doesn’t have to work on Friday’s during summertime. We jump started our Friday with a daddy & daughter doughnut date. Lee and Libby (in her pjs) went for doughnuts and brought some home to Whitney and I. Since Whitney isn’t old enough to eat doughnuts yet…I went ahead and ate hers for her 🙂
We eventually all got dressed and made our way over to Landmark Park to spend the morning. First up we hit the big playground they have. My big girl loves to slide, and slide she did! It was more crowded than we were used to and Libby kept insisting that her daddy slide with her and he happily obliged her.
After we got our fill of the playground, we made our way to the nature boardwalk. We stopped and looked at the historic buildings on site as we passed them. Libby couldn’t understand why she couldn’t go behind the roped off area in the historic Presbyterian Church.
The boardwalk is great! It was shaded ( a welcome break from the heat) and we saw lots of turtles, which Libby loved!
We found a lizard too!
On our way out we stopped for ice cream at the Martin Drugstore.
After the park we had lunch at our favorite diner, visited the library, and made a grocery store stop before heading home for naps!
Saturday it was supposed to rain in the afternoon so we decided to get out and enjoy the morning before we were stuck inside. We took the girls with us to the farmer’s market. Libby asked for a sno cone but ended up not liking it, so Lee ate it for her. I loved the local pottery and Lee liked talking to the organic beef farmer. After the farmer’s market we ran a few errands before heading back home for lunch and naps.
After everyone had woken up from their nap we decided to brave the rain and finish some things on our to do list. Lee went to get a haircut and I took the girls to the bookstore. Libby found a My Little Pony that she couldn’t live without…but she is learning to live without it…it was enormous and expensive and not coming home with us!
We settled in for the evening with a homemade pizza and The Little Mermaid before bathes and bed. It was a fun Saturday!
Sunday was our day of rest! We had a lazy morning of playing and spending time together.
We had a yummy lunch of meatball sub sammies and then headed out to the home improvement store to pick up some supplies for a project we are working on.
I needed an afternoon cup of coffee to make it through the rest of the day….I call it my mommy coffee 🙂
For dinner I used our left over meatballs and marinara, added some milk and cheese and made a yummy sauce to eat with noodles. It was delish!
We ended our weekend with a family walk and some coloring.
