So Much To Do ~ So Little Time!

Since my last post, we....

1. Went to a concert
A local band (The Wendy Woo Band )was playing at a nearby park so Brandon and I took the girls to the free concert. It was a beautiful summer evening! We listened to the music for a while and then took turns watching Kaitlin at the playground. We had so much fun!

2. Went to KidSpree
There is a free festival for kids each year at a park in Aurora called Kid Spree. We went last year with Kaitlin and had a blast ~ so we decided to go back again this year!

3. Went to a housewarming party

My good friend Shareatha recently bought a beautiful town home and she had a housewarming party on Saturday night. She lives in a great place! Congratulations to Shar, her girls, and her boyfriend Rusty! Thumbs Up Smiley Pictures, Images and Photos

4. Went to a baptism
My good friend Tara's little boy Hayden was baptized on Sunday June 19th. (Click here to see the pictures.) Kaitlin and I went to the church for the baptism and then back to Hayden's house for the reception. Congratulations, little Hayden!

5. Took Charlie to an emergency vet
Never a dull moment. Brandon spent most of Sunday doing yard work. On Sunday afternoon he was just finishing up mowing the front lawn when he walked by the garage and saw Charlie chowing down on some rat poison! He called the vet and they said Charlie needed to be seen immediately, so Brandon took him in.

Basically it is a process of making the dog throw up as much of the poison as he can and then giving the dog charcoal to soak up whatever has made it past his stomach, and then the dog has a 28-day regimen of Vitamin K to ensure that his blood clots.

6. Cleaned out the entire crawl space & garage in preparation for Saturday garage sale
We have been spending most of our nights digging through old boxes and bags looking for things to get rid of at our garage sale on Saturday. It started out as a few bags of Goodwill items and is now taking up as half of our garage. We hope to sell most of it, but of course, whatever's left over is going to charity tomorrow afternoon.

7. Went to another storytime at the library
This time I didn't take pictures but I should have as it was "dress up" night. All the kids wore costumes or dress-up clothes and listened to the librarian read stories and sing songs. (And yes, we stopped for ice cream again on the way home.)

8. Splashed around in the baby pool!
It's been pretty warm lately, so one afternoon the girls got in the baby pool.

Lots of activities for sure. Glad Charlie pulled wasn't Kasper that poisoned him, was it??? The Spree looked like a great event for the munchkins. Hopefully Kaitlin will not grab a marker and go to town on one of the cars at home. Zoey just seems to take everything in around her...very cute.
