Barbecuing, sunning, and boating – oh my! We’ve had a busy weekend here with back-to-back parties! Friday, we hosted a going away party for a great friend who will be moving overseas, and who will be dearly missed! We took advantage of the Target Dollar Spot Memorial Day decor and turned the patio into an obnoxious display of patriotism. Drinks, burgers and dogs, bags (corn hole), washers, lots of laughs, and good music made for a memorable night. We also excessively used the word ‘MERICA. Like, really excessively. We also set off a firework show in his honor. (The cheap “fountain” ones from the grocery store, yolo!) It was like a 10 gun salute, but cheaper and only a little less intense. I think he’ll miss us!
Saturday was spent riverside at our good friend’s house. They have a son a month younger than London. It was fun to be pregnant together, and even more fun to watch our kids pull each other’s hair, suck on each other’s hands, and occasionally look at the camera at the same time.
Arm wrestling to solve once and for all who has the cutest laugh 😉 also. I have to say, my shorts are from American Eagle and I am obsessed. I literally bought these shorts in 4 colors and might go back for more. I keep telling myself I’m not too old for AE.
London experienced her first boat ride, and seemed to love it. Peyton weaseled her way into driving the boat, which turned into her honking the horn excessively, until our friend convinced her it was broken! After the boat ride, I got to take P out for her first jet-ski ride. I’m shocked she actually got on the dang thing. Homegirl put her big girl pants (or swimsuit), and we lasted about 20 minutes! She was very excited to tell daddy about the “wet ski” when we docked. Which was a shitshow. I wish somebody had a video of me steering the jet-ski into the hoist, then trying to dismount without kicked Peyton in the head, and then getting her off the jet-ski and hoist without either of us falling into the river. I grew up on a lake with boats, so it was a major blow to my pride. Nothing some cocktails can’t fix 😉
We got home and Lo immediately fell asleep. Dave started the fire outside, and I whipped up some strawberry shortcake. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day!
Mother Nature wanted us to slow our summertime roll, and we spent the majority of today on the couch, watching movie after movie while it rained outside. I took advantage of the weather and the fact that Dave had been chosen as favorite parent by both girls, and cleaned the kitchen. Like taking things out of cabinets and the whole nine yards. for.every.single.cabnet.
