We got a lot accomplished this weekend! Mathlete was busy working on my car to get the rear brakes replaced (he’s handy that way) while I (finally) got to spend some time on house projects. We also managed to mix in some fun family and friend time too!
Saturday: We started our day with the farmers market. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies. It was so hot though so we didn’t stay long. We did manage to squeeze in a balloon animal since they weren’t doing face painting because of the heat.
On the way out of the farmers market, we ran into some of H’s school friends and decided to join them for lunch at Red Robin. With 3 4-year olds (or 2 + 1 almost 4 year old), you can imagine the amount of giggles at the table. It was a great time for the moms to catch up too.
From Red Robin, I dragged H to Costco to stock on some supplies. She loves to the “cold room” so we spent some time in there trying to recover from the 100+ degree heat we’ve been experiencing over the past week. We also managed to fill our cart up witht he most heavy stuff I could imagine having to push all the way to the end of the parking lot!
We ended our day with pretty much the best thing for a summer night: ice cream. We all hopped into the car and headed over to Dairy Queen.
Baby E spent most of the time playing with the red spoons from the restaurant.
After we put the kiddos to bed, Mathlete went back out to finish up with my car while I started to put together the little storage unit I bought for our bedroom. We have a desk that is built with two filing cabinets. With all of our files though, it is full and so we have no place for the “accessories” like printer paper, printer ink, etc. I picked up a little shelving unit from Target that I figured I would put together over a glass of wine and the latest episode of the closer. Here are the pieces before their “treatment”
I screwed the small shelves into the two long side shelves. Until all of the shelves were added in, I made sure to leave all of the screws a little loose and then go back and tighten them once all the shelves were in.
Once the screws were tightened, I threw on the screw covers and I was all done. The Closer hadn’t even finished yet so it was a quick fix. I had purchased some little bins and a basket to put in the shelves but I apparently picked the wrong size. So, for now, it is bin-less.
Sunday: We’ve started some sort of informal tradition of going to the pool on Sunday mornings when they open. Usually, we all head there as a family but Baby E went down for his morning nap earlier than usual. So, H and I spent some time at the pool with one of her school friends and her mom (a friend of mine!).
We spent the afternoon at the mall searching for shoes for Baby E. He is attempting to walk so I figured it was probably time to get him some shoes.
I spent the rest of the afternoon cutting and wrapping water bottles for H’s upcoming birthday party.
