I found this bible verse last weekend on pinterest and kept it, didn't realize it would tie into a post this week.
Tuesday my parents took Dave out on the boat for some fishing. He really had a good time. It was his first time fishing since he was a kid and first time on a boat around Charleston. Dad caught 2 fish but I think only one could be kept.
Dave and I got home around the same time and hung out until I headed to the church.
Pastor Chris got a new grill and offered free dinner to anyone who wanted it. Below was my plate, it was delicious!!! They fed a bunch of people, they are awesome. Someone made a bunch of cookies and butterscotch brownies, the brownies were amazing!!!
The whole reason besides yummy dinner for a random tuesday at church was to paint. Me, mom, Shannon and Ashley all signed up for a painting class (life group) and we really enjoyed it.
This was part of the way done. Thanm God for step by step instructions:)
Ms. Cindy, our teacher whom I have known since I was a kid. I love that our church has tons of new people but I really love there are still people from the beginning still there.
My finished product, which is now hung up in my bathroom.
Enjoyed getting to spend that time with these amazing women. I look up to all 3 of them!
This was our whole group!
Such a fun time and I hope they offer it again in the future.
Saturday morning was the first morning we didn't have kids or work in over a week so we slept in. Dave actually woke up feeling bad and went back to bed until noon. Yeah I waited for maybe an hour then decided I was working out without him. I got in some cardio, upper body and abs, I felt great! Now that my ankle is better my workouts are getting better.
We spent the afternoon being a little lazy, went to Target then to my parents for some yummy ribs dad made on his new grill. It's called the Po'man grill, look it up it's really cool!
Evening stroll with my boy before netflix and sleep!
I thought the sky looked so pretty!
Sunday our Lola (my niece) turned 9, how is that possible? I don't feel like she can already be 9 but yup she is. She's getting older but i'm not funny how that works ;)
We went to church, I worked out at the AFB gym then we headed down to JI. We got Daves very first fishing license too since he's going out tomorrow with my parents.
So he was supposed to be baptized on the beach at 5 but there were bad storms and it got re-scheduled. So we came back to the house, the weather had cleared up some so we took Isabelle to Sunrise Park.
We got back to the house for Lola's birthday party with the family.
Yummy cookie cake mmmmmm
The birthday girl her 2 cakes and beautiful roses from my parents. Lucky girl!
Lucky girl got some good stuff!
Adriana and Dave oh and sophie!
I really enjoyed all the family time this weekend! Next weekend will probably have a decent amount of it too. We decided to get the kids saturday until Monday so they can have fun and Dave can get some more time with them. They will go to Jersey for a few weeks soon so we won't see them for the end of July.
I have a short week, Thursday and Friday off yay!! Now to just make it through to wednesday!!
So last week we got the kids on friday and they stayed with us until this past friday. I worked all week but we still had some fun when I was around. I think Dave kept them busy with tv, games, pool and parks!
This was the sunset Tuesday night, gorgeous!
Lola and Isabelle spent the night tuesday night. Dave sent me this picture around noon of them all eating popcorn and watching a movie. They went to the pool a short time later.
Alayna asleep from too much fun with the girls but no time for sleep with our friends the Newmans coming over.
The sky looked a bit sketchy Wednesday afternoon but we lucked out and had no storms.
We had some pizza for dinner. Then the kids got to Enjoy some mickey koolaid pops with our friend Jesse. Dave, me, Ashley and Mike really enjoyed sitting around the living room chatting.
Wednesday night we had an AWEFUL storm for a good 2 hours. Thankfully the kids stayed asleep but I definitely was exhausted thursday morning.
Thursday while daddy was at the gym with Mr. Mike we went to the pool. I love this picture of Alayna. Then more Mickey pops after dinner. They love these things.
Friday I left work early with a bad tummy and we got to see Air Force One flying into Charleston. The kids got to see it too and Logan asked if George Washington was in it. So funny!
The girls came over to swim and I stayed around the house for awhile then walked over. I wanted to swim but yeah no thanks feeling sick.
Oliver came over and he was the shiny new toy.
We had a fun week but I have enjoyed some peace and quiet this weekend.
Back on memorial day we got the family together on the Old Navy base where they have a bunch of old Military housing for pictures. I love this area of Charleston, it has so much history. Kayce Smoak Photography took our photos and they turned out pretty good. So here are some of my favorites.
The whole group!
My awesome parents, love you guys!
My sweet little nephew, I LOVED this picture of him!
These girls are best friends and I love it. I hope they will be friends forever. Maybe even cousins one day!
