Catch-up Post

I've been such a blogging slacker these past few weeks, but I think getting back from vacation and trying to adjust back to everyday life took us a while.  Just because I haven't posted much doesn't mean we haven't been up to much.

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!

That day just happened to be a day we were babysitting Sophia, too!  She is such a doll and we were all excited we got to help out Trey and Stef by watching her for the day.  She loved playing with all of her cousins and my three were all over her all day.

Hudson is quite the mama's boy, but that boy also LOVES his daddy.  As in, he wants to watch every move and be just like him.  On this summer night, he saw Robby mowing the grass and immediately ran to get his mower and be just like daddy.  When I asked him what he was doing, he told me he was "lawn mowin."

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!

Ok - I totally get what you mean about no time to blog. Our lazy days of summer are somehow too packed to blog anymore.

LOVE the fort sleepover! Your 3 are, no doubt, makin' memories!
