Insta-Friday.....posted on Monday because I'm a total slacker. #36

Something amazing happened this weekend. Shane and Collin went to the father-son campout. Lydia went to a birthday slumber party at her best friend's house. I had almost 20 hours in my house to myself. I have not spent the night alone in my house in seven years. I finished some projects. Ate junk food. Made a paint sample banner for Collins birthday while watching a chick flick. Slept in and went to yard sales in the morning. It was beyond awesome. And I was so happy when they all came home.

I got some great thrift deals while on my mini vacation.
And for some reason this came home too.
Not really sure how....

Lydia had her first trip to the spa while at her slumber party.

I didn't have a spa day until I was in my 20's.

Apparently my request for "lots of photos" from the father/son campout meant one photo of Collin eating dinner. But even without photographic evidence, they had a great time.

We've had amazing weather lately. 

And Collin has been dressing himself. He likes long socks.

Actually, Boise pretty much skipped Spring and went straight to Summer.
So we skipped school and went swimming.

Collin got a summer haircut. Where'd my baby go?!

I've been sitting outside in the sun a lot, drinking herbal ice tea and listening to ocean waves on my phone.

I really wanted to hit the coast this summer. But I'm having a baby instead. 
So I have an ocean vacation app for that.

Woke up (way too early) to the sound of little chatter the other day. Found the kids on the couch looking at our scrapbook of last years Florida trip. (When I snuck up behind them the floor squeaked. Collin gasped "Lydia! I just heard my heart beat!)

I guess they are wanting a vacation too.

A preschool carnival is a vacation right?
We got some photo booth pics.
Because I worry there just are not enough photos of my kids.

I hadn't been to the grocery store in a very long while. We had just enough milk for cereal but no fruit, no juice except for half a bottle of Martinelli's sparkling cider. And I had to let the kids drink it out of the bottle because I forgot to turn on the dishwasher the night before.

I could have gone grocery shopping that night.

But I just went out with the girls instead.

I've never said I was perfect. Dang, those avocado egg rolls were good.

Father's and Son's is the best night of the year!!! I had my baby, but it was still an awesome night of almost peace and quiet. I love Collin's little boy haircut- so cute!
