After VBS I took the van to get the oil changed before we headed off to the lake. Notice the glazed-over look on the kids' faces. Apparently, The Disney Channel (which we don't get at home) is quite captivating!
Ugh, I got sick at the lake. Lots of sneezing and headaches and such. This is one of the several cups of coffee I inhaled. It didn't help, but it tasted good!
Home from the lake and taking a dip in the tub. Love the little blondies taking a bath!
My husband left to be a chaperone/counselor at Junior High Camp for our church for five days. My parents sent me my favorite flowers (daisies and alstroemeria) with a passage of encouragement attached (Psalm 121) and it was a wonderful surprise! This is the longest Josh and I have been apart since we've had kids.
My dear friend Penny popped in for a surprise visit, so we loaded up the kids and headed to Chick-fil-A! I so appreciated her thoughtfulness in stopping by and it was great to wear out the kiddos before bedtime! Caleb was excited to have his picture with the CFA cow. :)
Naomi eating spinach tortellini for dinner. I have no idea why this is the only picture from Wednesday, since we had two play dates and then my parents came to visit ... but oh well! :) It works!
I had a craving for some pollo con crema at a local Mexican joint, so I loaded up the kids and we went for an early dinner together. I was a bit nervous being outnumbered by the kiddos in a restaurant that lacks a play place :), but it was so much fun! The kids were great and because the restaurant was pretty empty (remember, we went early ... it's all strategy, folks!), there was a steady stream of waiters coming by the table to tickle Naomi's chin and give Cub high-fives. They gave us the royal treatment and it was such a fun spontaneous night out with the kids! Oh, and you can't tell in this picture, but Caleb insisted on wearing his Lowe's nail apron. That only added to the cuteness. :)
I can't wait for my hubby to come home today. :)
Have a lovely weekend, friends!
