:::: We love these and haven't had them since Idaho because I haven't found them around here. Well hubby found them at the commissary in Texas, so he brought some back for us. Grapples.....YUM!
:::: Breakfast Saturday morning, hubby ran out and picked up donuts. Mmmmmmm....
:::: ran around with the family, couple errands here and there and then stopped for lunch at Ono's Hawaiian Barbecue...had the Island Chicken Curry. SO GOOD.
:::: back home and I replenished my batch of homemade laundry detergent.
:::: this batch I used Zote soap instead of the Fels Naptha. Love the pink flakes :)
:::: had intermittent rain the whole weekend
:::: which made for some stunning cloud formations
Went to the movies that night and watched The Amazing Spiderman in 3D. SO good, what a great movie :)
Sunday morning we had breakfast together and then decided to head to the movies again so the kids could watch Ice Age Continental Drift. It was so cute and so funny, we had a blast :)
Stopped at Cracker Barrel for lunch, then did a little shopping at Target and look what my hubby found me LOL I can't wait to try them :)
The afternoon was spent catching up on chores, like giving the turtle tank a really good cleaning. Now Squirt (Nic's turtle) does not like me. I don't know why, I have never hurt him, I've never even touched him but he just doesn't like me hahahah Anytime I walk into the room he will quickly run off his rock and into the water and furthest away from as possible, but yesterday I got to pick him up and scrub him clean and he was hissing at me the whole time. By the time I put him back in his clean tank he was SO mad, he was literally glaring....this photo just makes me laugh so hard because he is so annoyed with me LOL
:::: sat down and surrounded myself with a ton of yarn sent by my sweet Aunt. These are just a few, but I'm loving the colors and the different textures.
:::: in Arizona we mow dirt disguised as grass. So frustrating to be out there mowing and hitting rock after rock and kicking up a dust storm around you. BLECH!
Had a wonderful weekend, but hubby returned to work today and we're all falling back into our normal routines. Cleaning, laundry, picking up after the kids etc....also got our Homeschool Station for the year since we're beginning August 8th.
:::: last year we tried the dining room table but it didn't work for Nicholas, it was just a distraction and he didn't take it seriously, so we need to have an actual area for him to do his work
:::: also tried folders instead of composition books and THAT was a fail as well, they kept losing papers, or tearing them out etc. We're back to composition books this year, so I sat down and made some cute labels for the fronts
:::: and when not being used for schooling, this will be mama's little corner, where I can blog, facebook, check email, pay bills etc.
