After an afternoon trip to Petsmart to get fish supplies, we spent hours in our backyard, enjoying the summer-like weather. Lots of water play and grilling out! Perfect!
We spent the day at home, recovering from the craziness of last week!
I babysat all day, then we went to Dylan's baseball game. He was a hitting machine! My sister and her family were at the fields for soccer practice at the same time, so she took the girls for a while so I could watch Dylan play, and then they chatted with us for a while before leaving. After the game, we rewarded Dylan by going to Dairy Queen for some ice cream!
In the morning, the girls and I met my best friend and her boys at the library for a playdate, and then we headed to the park for a bit. After the park, Grant joined us to take Lily for repeat blood work. This time, the tech was amazing. It only took one stick! Lily let out a tiny yell right after the needle went in, then sat perfectly still! I was shocked! We ran some errands before returning home. That night, we headed over to our friend's house for dinner. Unfortunately, we didn't stay long, because her poor baby girl starting throwing up just before we got there. It was still nice to see them, even if it was for a short time!
Lexie had a Watermelon Welcome, which was another even for the kids attending Kindergarten in the Fall. She got to do activities with the Kindergarten teachers, ride a bus, and play on the playground. That night, Dylan had a baseball game. He was so excited to get the game ball! After the game, one of the coaches treated them to ice cream. When we got there, he came thisclose to being hit by a car. I swear, my heart stopped. Thankfully, everything turned out fine.
That morning, I had lunch with Dylan at his school. I picked up some Subway, and we sat on a picnic blanket on the school's lawn. It was nice to spend time with just him! Afterward, the girls and I went to my parent's house to visit. Lexie was so excited to meet their new kitten! That night, Dylan, Lily, my mom, and I went shopping, while Lexie spent time with my Dad. After having dinner with them, and visiting with my sister, we headed home for the night.
Dylan had a baseball tournament, so we were at the field for over 4 hours. It was scorching outside, so Grant's mom watched the girls for the remaining 3 hours. Dylan played well, but we were all relieved when the second game was over. That night, we stayed home. It was the first Saturday night in months that we didn't have plans! It was nice to relax a bit!
