The past few days have been dreamy and lovely. It's Saturday night and I am just sitting exhausted in my pj's listening to "The Food Network" and basking in delight as I reminisce about the past few days.

Pure Summer Delight.

Wednesday: The Diva's experienced their first time jumping on the tramp with the sprinklers.

They were fans.

Huge ones. (Apologies to the neighbors if my girls want to make this a daily thing).

Thursday: We broke out the sprinkler for the first time.

Again, big fans.

Friday: Our annual zoo trip. We go every year the Friday after Memorial Day, and realized that this year will be our last. Next year Adyson will be in Kindergarten. (Insert sigh and tear here).

Have I mentioned how cute I think they are?The carousel. Always a favorite.

Adyson measuring herself with the gorilla. Sienna was too busy making funny faces at it to pose for me.
Adyson's newest fascination is bugs. She loves them, and wants a bug collection just like zoo. She just loved looking at all the beautiful butterflies, and the Gross spiders and beetles too. (I'm serious here, our scared little Adyson loves bugs). When we left the reptile house where the are kept, she said, "I just love those bugs. Those poor dead bugs."

Another new love is rocks. She has been making a rock collection this summer, and was thrilled to find gemstones for sale at the zoo. Of course that was the surprise she picked, and she had to pull them out at lunch (Ruth's Diner!) and inspect them all.
To top the day off the ladies got to have their weekly sleepover at my mom's house. They were so wound up and excited that they sat up and gabbed with my mom about the zoo all night long.

In the morning Adyson was invited to a B-day party, so we dropped her off at 10:30 and picked her up at noon, grabbed some lunch, and dropped her and Sienna off at another B-day party at 1. (That makes 7 B-day parties for Adyson this month!)
And to top the weekend off Trav's mom picked up the girls from the party to take them to play in the water with their cousins. They were seriously excited to spend the day with them. And somehow I have to find a way to get them back to boring, normalcy.

Travis was golfing in a tournament with his Dad, and I was at Tai Pan with my mom shopping.

Um, yes, we all had a very good weekend indeed.
Delightful I tell you.

Hey young lady. It's bedtime! What a lovely week you had. It will take me weeks to edit and post mine. (we just got back from AZ)

Looks like you had a great weekend! And yeah, Whats up with this school thing? :) It really does put a cramp in your style right? It was so hard getting use to not being able to just jump in the car and take off somewhere out of town in the middle of the week :(

Isn't summer great! Sometimes I wonder why I didn't choose to live somewhere where it is summer all year long....maybe I wouldn't love it as much!

Jill said...

Sounds lovely!!! Your girls will treasure all that time spent with family, even if going back to normal routine is "boring."

I loved jumping on the tramp with sprinklers when I was a kid. A little nostalgic for me. I wish we had room for a trampoline now, wait, I wish i had a grass yard first :)
How do you keep up with your blog, you always seem so busy busy busy with your precious little girls?!
