Keeping Up With...Family (Weekly Wrap 6/3 - 6/9)

Dropping in quickly between packing, cleaning and shuttling everyone to and from camp with a quick recap of our past week.  We leave for vacation bright and early tomorrow morning and I'm not sure what WiFi (and my time) will look like so it may be quiet around here for a week so, but I'll be sure to catch you all up when I get back.  For now, here's how we've been keeping busy the past week.

Friday (6/3) I gave the boys a few choices for what to do that day.  They chose a trip to Easton and the splash pads there.  We started at the Y so I could teach my Zumba class, then headed to McDonald's for lunch.  After that we went to Easton where we pick up my wedding ring (it was getting a spruce up), played in the water, watched the train & got free cookies from Cheryl's for good report cards.  We finished up our day with a free Krispy Kreme donut since it was national donut day.

Saturday (6/4) was AJ's birthday party.  The forecast wasn't good but thankfully the storms held off and we were able to do what he wanted - play in the yard, play video games & have ice cream cake.  We had 12 kids over for the party and it was crazy and fun.  AJ had a great time, as did all the kids who came.  We were all pretty tired after the party, but we had baseball under the lights that night.  So we refueled with some Jets pizza and downtime then Adrian, AJ & Daniel headed out to the game.  Zak and I stayed home because he was having some stomach issues.  Daniel got his first hit for the season & was SO excited!!  The team lost (again) but AJ & Daniel were excited about how they played.

Sunday (6/5) was a very low key day.  We relaxed and worked on our to do list so we're ready to leave for NJ.  The kids enjoyed a lot of video games this day and also all slept in after a few very busy days.  It was a much needed active rest day for all of us.

Monday (6/6) kicked off a busy week of camps for the boys.  AJ started video game design camp, which he attended each afternoon this week.  And all three boys started VBS at our church.  While AJ was at camp, I took the other boys and got all of us signed up for the summer reading program at our local library.  We also stocked up on books and movies for the start of the summer.
Tuesday (6/7) was another day of camp for all of us.  Daniel started sports and arts camp with a few of his friends.  He played baseball and did art and loved every minute of it.  AJ had day 2 of video game design camp.  And Zak went to night 2 of VBS.  AJ and Daniel missed VBS because they had their last game of the season.  Both boys got hits again tonight and played really well.  They are excited to play fall baseball in a few months!

Wednesday (6/8) was more of the same, Daniel at Sports & Art camp, AJ at video game design camp and all three at VBS for the night.  But the fun difference was that Adrian and I got a fun date night while everyone was at VBS.  We went and did some shopping to use some coupons we had for stuff we need for our trip.  Then we tried a new to us restaurant for dinner - Piada.  It was really good!!  I got their seasonal Piada and I loved every bite.  We will be going back very soon!!

Thursday (6/9) was very similar to the rest of the week.  It was the last night of VBS and the boys had a really good week there!  Also Daniel was invited to a pool party after Sports & Art camp so Zak and I went to join him for that.  The water was freezing, but we made the best of it.  I was also very happy to finish up all of my errands before leaving for the week next week.

Another fun week in the books for us!!  I'm really hoping this keeps up all summer, we're off to a fantastic start!
