This weekend was so much fun! Really, aren't they all!?! Especially when my hubby doesn't have to work! The kids love waking up and having Daddy home and so do I!
Saturday we woke up and Damian made a big breakfast of pancakes, bacon, and eggs. Then we spent a couple of hours in the pool. I am shocked and amazed with how well Max has been swimming!! And of course Emma wanted to stay there all day. I did a little housework, some laundry, and a quick shopping trip to TJMaxx and Walmart. Fun times over here! Damian took the kids to the golf course to hit some balls and run around.
Saturday night I had a girls night out!!! Can I get a whoop...whoop!! I honestly cannot remember the last time I had one of those. I'm thinking it was probably before Max was born...that is so sad!! Needless to say it was a much needed girls night out for all of us mommies!! I was so excited when my friend Jessi invited me to go out with her and a few friends. We met up with Shannon, Erica, and Gina for dinner at Bonefish Grill. The food was delish and we had so much fun chatting it up. After dinner, we headed to Prime bar where Kim met up with us too! We had some drinks and just enjoyed hanging out with the girls. There was a lot of mom talk and at one point I felt really old because the music was so loud I couldn't hear myself. I just had to laugh! We stayed out until almost 1 am. This mommy was so tired the next day! I can't wait to do it again!!
Sunday was church in the morning,(after sleeping in!!) grocery shopping at Publix: we had Publix subs for lunch--yummo!, and then we had a little get together in the afternoon with the Switzer's and some other friends. The kids had fun with Brody, Connor, and Zander swimming and playing together. The guys played cornhole and it was so HOT outside...everyone was dripping with sweat. We enjoyed some good fun and a relaxing night despite the heat and humidity.
All in all it was another great weekend! Today was a stay in your jammies until lunch time kind of day for us! I'm taking advantage of these days since school will be starting in just a few short weeks.
Tomorrow I'm going to try to do a little shopping for Max's birthday party! So excited to see what I can find!! We're going to go to the Magic Kingdom on Wednesday since last week we had to cancel and spend the day in the dentist office instead. I'm looking forward to getting together with my team from school on Thursday morning for a training.

The kids favorite part of baking=eating chocolate chips!
We turned these cookies into ice cream sandwiches. We highly recommend Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream...delicious!
I also have to add that while the cookies were baking Emma decided that they needed to exercise. So, she went upstairs and changed both her and Max into "workout clothes". You can see their outfits in the last pic. It was so funny! Damian and I were laughing so hard! Especially with Emma and her tank top that she decorated with markers and her knee socks and twinkle toes. I should have taken some more pics. They got out their mats and did yoga, jumping jacks, sit-ups, push-ups, and a few other things. Then they asked if I would turn on exercise tv. They love that channel. So they did the hip hop routine--which I really should have video taped. Emma did the belly dancing routine too. We should probably lock the doors now for when that girl is a teenager--she is too much!
We are looking forward to a relaxing weekend spent together. I always love weekends that Damian doesn't have to work! I think I'm having some beach withdrawals so maybe we'll head over for a few hours. We also have some plans with some friends and hopefully some time spent doing nothing!

I've said it before but I could seriously eat this boy's freckles up...they are just the sweetest! Max has been surprising me lately. He's a pretty stubborn boy but he's actually been trying new things. He's been swimming with his head under the water without a life jacket or any floaties...talk about being brave. He's also been trying new foods which is BIG for us. He usually sticks to his favorites and tells me everything else is too yucky for him. He ate onion rings and fried green tomatoes at a BBQ place after we left the beach...D and I were shocked!
He's such a little charmer and is often overheard telling Emma "you look pretty" or "you're the best sister ever". And he always takes breaks from playing to give me hugs and kisses and tell me he loves me. He also yells this out to me when he's laying down for a nap. I love it!!
His vocabulary has increased so much, I think this is due to the fact that we are home and he has his big sister to teach him so many new things. (and his mommy too!)
He loves babies!! He can't stop talking about his baby cousin Noah and our friend's new baby Cael. He wants to see pictures and kiss them constantly.
He also still loves to play baseball, golf, and wrestle with his daddy. He was so excited to go to the driving range on Sunday while Emma and I went to my friend Jennifer's baby shower. He has been talking all about the range this week.
He had a blast at a playdate with his buddy Brody yesterday. They are definitely all boy and had fun playing superheroes!
I'm loving being home with my boy(and girl) this summer!!

The beginning of school is such an exciting time...although it did just about break my heart to see school supplies already out in the stores.
