Keeping Up With...Family (Weekly Wrap 7/15 - 7/21)
Friday (7/15) started with a trip to the doctor for me. I was having some ear pain & not able to hear well out of one ear. I thought it was swimmer's ear but turned out to be just a ball of wax, yuck! After that and Zumba we decided to just chill at home for the day. We had been going every day the past week so it was nice to take a day to just relax. Friday night I got to sneak away for a few hours with my friends for a Tupperware party. I had a great time laughing, chatting, eating and shopping. This was our Tupperware lady:
Sunday (7/17) we were all exhausted after yesterday's full day so after church we just hung around the house, did some chores and got ready for the next week.
Monday (7/18) we had an awesome adventure downtown! We decided to go into Adrian's office because some of his co-workers wanted to meet the boys. And Adrian has been telling them about all the Pokemon Go things that are downtown. We had to park near Columbus Commons so we started there collecting Pokemon as we walked back to the State House & Adrian's office. We stopped for pizza for lunch before heading in to meet Adrian's co-workers.
Tuesday (7/19) the boys had swimming lessons at the Y so we stayed after to swim. They are doing SO well with their swimming. Both AJ and Daniel have finally started putting their heads under water. Daniel likes going under water so much that I have to tell him to stop for a few minutes to catch his breath. AJ did it for the first time today & his teacher & I were SO excited!! He also jumped into the deep end without assistance. Yay! They also all had the second night of VBS tonight. It was a jam packed day.
Wednesday (7/20) we decided to stay home and catch our breath in the morning/afternoon. We've been going like crazy and I'm trying to build in "stay home" days for the rest of the summer. Then in the evening we all went out to dinner together at the "Rusty Bucket" and the boys headed to night three of VBS. And Adrian & I had a date night!! It was very romantic...we went to Costco, Giant Eagle & Kohl's. But I got a bunch of stuff crossed off my to do list. He really knows the way to my heart.
Thursday (7/21) was another awesome day at the pool for us. The indoor pool at the Y was closed due to some maintenance issues so the boys had their lessons outside. We stayed and swam with friends for like 2 hours after lessons. Once again, the boys were all over the pool, diving under to catch squid & rings. It was so much fun. And I got a nice little tan being outside for over 3 hours.
