Week 30: 365 Project

Week 30?!?  This year is flying by faster than the last one!

{JULY 22nd}

Our plans for the afternoon were canceled, so we ended up spending it at home.  We pulled out the pool that we had bought over a month ago and set it up for the kids.  We had a great time sitting outside while the kids went swimming and played. Grant's mom even stopped over for a visit.  That evening, we went to our friend's house for dinner.  We stayed really late, and had a great time!

I was home alone all day with the kids, from wake up until after bedtime.  I'm not going to lie. It's stressful! After Lily woke up from her nap, we played outside. The kids went swimming in their pool, while Lily played with toys. Lily decided to climb the rock climbing wall on our playset all by herself. That evening, we had an unexpected trip to the store to buy a new garbage can.  Someone thought it was a great idea to use our garbage can as a stepstool, and it broke.  It was during dinner time, so I surprised the kids with Happy Meals (yuck). Once Grant got home, we got caught up on our favorite shows.

Happy Birthday to Grant!!! I babysat all day, then Grant's mom stopped by with a birthday cake.  That evening, Grant and I had dinner at Red Lobster while my parents watched the kids.  It was nice to go out alone!  Once we returned home, we watched a movie together before bed.

Grant shaved the 'stache!  YAY! I took Lily to get her weekly blood draw done.  She didn't cry, but trying to hold her still was comparable to trying to hold a crocodile still.  After a few errands, we headed back home.  That evening, I held a Gutzy Gear party.  After the party, Dylan went over to my sister's house for a sleepover, and my great-niece, Aubrey, spent the night at our house.

I decided to keep Aubrey with us for the day, because Dylan was spending the day with his cousins. We went to the library, and then went to our weekly blogger/twitter moms playdate.  This time we had it at Ballocity, which is an indoor ball pit/climbing area.  It was ridiculously hot and humid, so it was a perfect day for an indoor activity.  After the playdate, we had to stop at WalMart.  While we were in the store, a huge storm rolled in.  We ended up trapped in the building for a half hour.  We made a dash for the car as the rain slowed.  The damage from the storm was crazy.  Trees were down everywhere! That evening, we went to our friend's house for dinner.

We spent the afternoon visiting my parents, and had dinner with them.  While there, we stopped at the stable for a quick visit with my horse.  I miss him.  I don't get to spend nearly enough time with him. It was another day of crazy storms!

It was the first Saturday in months that we didn't have any plans.  We spent the day at home, and I watched my nephews all afternoon.  After dinner, Grant stayed home with the kids, while I went shopping for items to make Lily's birthday outfit.  Two and a half glorious hours alone! Once home, we put the kids to bed, and spent the rest of the evening watching our favorite show.
