Mama was determined to take more pictures today. Mission accomplished!
Daddy left for San Diego early Sunday morning so we've been on our own for a few days. Daddy's annual conference seems to take him somewhere gorgeous this week every year while we experience the hottest week of the summer. I think next year we might tag along.
We started out with a yummy breakfast. The boys enjoyed some leftover waffles and cheesy-goodness eggs.
Mama discovered an unopened jar of bacon jam in the pantry and added it to her homemade English Muffin, egg & cheese sandwich. It was truly yummy.
After breakfast we all got ready and then took Jake Jake to school. Joseph and I ran to Hobby Lobby on the way home to get supplies to make a couple headbands for our birthday girl neighbor.
Joseph was a huge helper all day. We got groceries in record time and after putting them away and having a quick lunch, we headed to the Museum of Discovery. I've been wanted to take Joseph ever since their remodel and we recently procured a coupon. Yay! We had a great time exploring. Initially I was glad that I only had Joseph with me. Everything seemed to be way over Jake's head. . . . until we found the crazy kiddo room. We'll have to take him along next time.
We played with scarves in the giant wind tubes.
We learned all about earthquakes - around the world and in AR.
We put propellers on the fan and learned how to increase our speed by angling them.
We worked on our upper arm strength. (Parkour/Ninja Warrior training)
I bought some lobster from the polite fisherman.
More Ninja Warrior training.
Then we picked up the little crazy from school and made a Sonic stop on the way home. I think everyone else in town had the same idea. What other options do you have when it's 110 outside?
And in the evening we enjoyed a birthday party at the pool. It was a super cute party with an ocean/mermaid theme. You know mama loves a well-executed theme party!!! :)
