How is it that sometimes you truly realize just how fast time moves?
Another week over and with it came the end of summer camp, for myself, as well as the kiddos. So, while I was busy trying to ignore this head cold that has been plaguing me all week, we were busy packing up a summer of fun into boxes, to be stored away until next year. We were so busy in fact, that I forgot to take a picture of the pile of boxes stuffed into a corner of the room… It shocked even me! This Instagram junkie forgot to gram an “important” moment in my week.
Oh well, there were plenty of others I did manage to capture. The theme this week seems to have been pool fun. The girls were on a mission to enjoy the pool for as many hours as they could while the sun was shining and not a rain cloud was to be seen. They even managed to annoy me enough to let them go for not just one, but two, night swims, when all I wanted was to crawl into bed and sleep until I felt better.
For our last Fabulous Friday, little one dressed up as Sleeping Beauty. Her little friends at camp even formed a little princess clique for the day and went everywhere together, chanting: “Princesses are the best.” It was petty adorable.
As a reward for a job well done, hubby, the girls and I went out for dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant while the boy went to his friend’s house for the weekend. The girls took full advantage of having daddy to themselves.
And what’s a week on Instagram without some food shots. I managed to bake some yummy almond cookies. They are a favorite of the boys but I like to enjoy one or two with a cup of tea in the afternoon myself. And since we had a somewhat lazy day today, I threw together a quick and easy tossed pasta dinner that was simply delicious.
And while today was not as busy as some days are, I was still productive. I did some laundry, made lunch and dinner and took care of kitchen clean-up and did some house-keeping in my blog home. Yes, I changed the looks up a bit. I can’t help myself. I used to move our furniture around to change things up at home (driving hubby crazy in the process) – now I prefer to change things up here. On top of the changes you can see, I also did some cleaning up in the background. I updated my About Me page, changed up the navigation a bit by adding some drop downs on the menu and added an author box to the end of my posts. This blog is always a work in progress but I enjoy working on it.
Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend.
