Keeing Up With...Family (Summer Week 1 - May 30th thru June 5)

I'm planning to blog out each week over the summer so I can both share our adventures with everyone and also document them for the boys in the future.  I fell a little behind so I'll be playing catch up for a few days.  Once in a while I'll do a bigger post for bigger adventures.

This week started with AJ's birthday party on Saturday.  Then on Sunday we continued the birthday adventures when we headed out to Newark for Nathan's 6th birthday party.  He had a roller skating party and we all had a great time.  It took everyone a little while to get adjusted to being on roller skates but once we got going it was fun.  I think Zak had the most fun of everyone, he wouldn't get off the rink when the party was over!

Monday was a very down day for us because we were all tired after the weekend.  We went to the gym for my Zumba class then drove out to Newark to pick up AJ's prize from the ActiveFit program.  He won a $150 gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods!  He is such a lucky kid!

Tuesday was AJ's actual birthday and he wanted a stay home day.  We had to go to the gym so I could teach my Zumba class and then we went to the library very quickly to pick up some new books and DVDs to keep us busy.  And we all signed up for their summer reading program.

Wednesday my Zumba class was cancelled and the boys really wanted to stay home since we didn't have anywhere we had to be.  We had a great time playing at the house, in the yard and playing some video games.  It was a very nice relaxing day!!

Thursday we had plans to go strawberry picking, but Zak woke up with pink eye.  Boo!!  We headed to the doctor to get that taken care of and then once again spent the day at home.  I thought the boys would be bored but I think after the whole school year they were thrilled to be staying at home so much!
Friday Zak was still a little off and did not want to go swimming, which was our planned activity.  So we headed out to AJ's counseling session in the morning, then went to Krispy Kreme to get our free donuts for National Donut Day!  Then we headed home to get ready for another very busy weekend.  I thought we would just chill at home that night but Adrian came home and wanted to go to Best Buy to get new cell phones so we headed out to do that.  It was a long night, but we survived.  The boys got a new 3DS game out of the deal as well, AJ spent his birthday money on a new Mario game.

It wasn't the week we had planned, but it was still pretty fun.  And it was kind of nice to relax and have very few obligations after a very busy school year.  Plus it was nice to recharge and prepare for the rest of the summer, we have a lot of weeks left!!
