hi all! hope everyone is enjoying their week. things sure have been busy around here. mostly happy stuff. and some very sad. i spent the last week getting over being sick, organizing the house after it got thrashed, planning baby's birthday party that got cancelled, spending time with my dear grandparents and getting ready for summer. i ALWAYS get so excited for summer. only 8 days of school left!
anyways, i thought i'd share a few highlights from the past week. first off, baby and i went over to Irvine Regional Park to have a quick ride on the ponies. such a nice treat for him and only $4.
and of course we couldn't leave without riding the train. i sure wonder if he's going to insist on wearing those rain boots the entire summer! i need to enforce my summer "no sock/flip flop only" policy with him. for those of you who personally know me, know i hate folding socks!
which brings us to my next activity of the week. LAUNDRY. for those of you who personally know me, know i am laundry impaired! this is after 3 hours of folding. and i still had 3 loads to do. any tips on keeping up on laundry is greatly appreciated.
this old fence has been the eye sore of our backyard since we moved in. the neighbors don't want to replace it with us, and it's really expensive to do so, so i did the next best thing.
painted it rainbow! i just used Minwax Colored Wood Stain and now i have a happy backyard. i think that will do until we can replace the fence.
and the sunshine has arrived for good here in the OC, so we have had some afterschool fun in our own backyard. the kiddies have enjoyed this silly sprinkler....and enjoyed the muddy backyard it has created even more so. boys will be boys.
and lastly, we made these yummy Pink Lemonade Cookies. which i think i am now addicted to. they aren't a fancy recipe, just a Pillsbury box mix i got at Target, but they sure did make me happy!
any of you doing anything fun?
