Summer Fun

We got together with friends today! For the first time in a month! It was soooo good to start getting back to some sort of regular version of my life!

This morning we met Nicole, Boone, and Remy at the craft store to grab some stuff for Preston's birthday party this weekend. I had an idea for something I wanted to do in the kids' party bags and Nicole offered to help me out and since I have absolutely no creativity at all I jumped on that offer!

From the fabric store we headed to the movies to put our summer kids movie tickets to use. They were playing Kung Fu Panda 2! Preston hadn't seen the first one but I figured he'd enjoy it because he is very into fighting and the movie is all about fighting. But seriously we had our hands full! I had Mason for the day and between trying to carry our movie snacks and Mason and keep track of Preston plus going into four different theaters trying to find enough seats together in a good spot my arms felt the burn!

BUT the kids loved the movie! It was pretty cute. Preston and Boone were pretty into it. And even Mason was too. It was Mason's first movie and I was pretty nervous about how it was going to go. He doesn't usually watch TV and he's only eighteen months, so I was preparing myself for the worst. But he totally seemed to love it. He only got up once and it was only because he heard Preston and he wanted to see where he was.


After the movie everyone came back to our house. We let the Preston and Boone climb in the pool to swim in their life jackets while Nicole and I sat on the deck and got started on part of Preston's party bag favors.


It was HOT! Which of course meant that me and Nicole had to climb in the pool with Mason and Remy to cool of with the big boys too!

I finished the day off working on Preston' party stuff with my sister. And enjoying the fabulous weather! I am now completely exhausted and have a FULL day ahead of me tomorrow trying to get everything ready for Preston's party on Saturday. It's going to be so much fun!!

I'm thinking there will definitely be more pool parties and hanging out in the backyard relaxing happening this summer!

HUGE thank you to Nicole and my sister for all their help with Preston's party bags! You guys are awesome, I literally couldn't have done it without you!!
