Can I See Your Documentation, Please.

This summer I have been so consumed with the near constant cleaning required to maintain my sanity with everyone home all day long AND my new addiction to Pinterest that I haven't taken the time to document all the fun we've been having.  And I have a feeling I'm going to need some visual evidence in my defense someday {soon} when my kids are bored and cry, "We NEVER do ANYTHING fun!"    So, here's the whirlwind recap:
For Ri's 11th birthday this week he wanted to see the midnight premier of the new Harry Potter movie last night.  Here we are waiting outside the theater at 7:30 p.m.
And still waiting at 11:00.  { I have GOT to start carrying my real camera.  The cell phone just isn't cutting it.}  TOTALLY worth the wait!!!
Brent went to the Home Run Derby  with a friend who had extra tickets on Monday.  It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have the All-Star game in our home town AND actually get to go.  Do you love that the Jumbo-tron doesn't have spell check?!
Jose Bautista -- one of Brent's favorites right now.  Go Jays!! {The fact that he took that picture with our dumb camera shows how good their seats were.}
  B wore his Blue Jays shirt and got some respect from Ace.
D went to All-Star Fan Fest with the same friend and his son on Tuesday and came home wearing the taco-hawk.
Taco hats aren't no joke, bro.
Last week was Customer Appreciation day ay Chick-fil-A.  And you know how we like Chick-fil-A around here.  Wear a home-made cow costume for a free chicken sandwich and waffle fries?
You betcha'.
Before that was Cub Scout day camp with Dylan.  Holy hot!!  The first day of this {entirely outdoor}camp was the hottest day of the year here in AZ.  115+ degrees in the shade, with heat radiating from every single rocky surface.  I wasn't cut out for that.
The boys did great, heat and all.  D's favorites were archery and BB guns.
And I only had to pull over and toss my cookies on the side of the road once on the way home, so I guess it could have been worse.  TMI?  Just keepin' it real.
And here we are all the way back at Father's day.  {D made that World's Best Dad trophy at scouts.  His leader, Tammy, is one of the most clever people I know!}
I can't believe we didn't get a picture of the beautiful breakfast we prepared for him -- a "man"cake -- a stack of plate-sized pancakes with scrambled eggs, sausage, and hash browns in between and topped with strawberries and vanilla ice cream.  Dee-LISH!

Never let it be said that we don't do fun stuff for our kids around here.  No vacation doesn't mean Summer Vacation has to be a bust!!

  1. I am just green with jealous rage right now that Brent got to actually attend a home run derby. I would almost bucket list trade "run a marathon before I die" for that!!
