Last week we had several playdates and I love summer because it gives us the chance to see so many friends! The kids have become fast friends with some sweet kiddos that I just adore, too. The girls danced together last year and their little brother and Hudson always played while waiting for big sisters to finish up. They also go to the same pre-school. We have sleepovers planned for later this week and next, but last week they were here for a playdate and after lunch the kids decorated cookies!
Last weekend we were at the lake with our friends the Atkinsons. On our way up there on Friday afternoon we hit up a roadside stand for boiled peanuts. I knew Harper loved them (and always begs to stop and get some) but on this day in particular, I called it a southern success. All three of my kids were chowing down on them! Yummy!
The lake was so much fun and wonderful weather. We don't see Tiara, Trevor, Avery, and Dylan near as much as we used to, but we always pick up right where we left off.
The biggest news from this weekend was Hudson wanted to go on the tube for the first time this summer and he LOVED it!
Yesterday afternoon the kids were trying to build a fort in the playroom and when Robby got home last night they recruited his help to really make it work. After it was complete they had big plans to sleep in it and who was I to ruin that fun?!?! They all fell asleep and 2 of the 3 stayed there all night long!(Harper snuck into my bed sometime during the night.)
Also, just a little note to remind everyone that I'm still writing at my house blog, www.makingthishouse.blogspot.com, and have a lot of updates with our mudroom, my summer front door and tomorrow I plan to share a fun project I just completed!
