It always makes me sad when the first month of summer holidays comes to a close. Although it does sound long to say I have another month still, I know how much prep August requires and that means it goes by quite quickly. That being said, I also got tons accomplished in July. You can check out the previous numbers posts here. Now let's look back at what we got done in July:
1 Oui Day celebrating the end of a great school year. They requested the usual: Ruckers, lunch and supper out, buy lego and more stuffed animals......
5 Organized Pool Parties with friends- we have been getting great use out of the pool and Lucy has gone from only swimming with the life jacket on to diving for golf balls with Willis.
1 date with cousins, honouring our Grams on her birthday. Our Grams was such a social butterfly, she would be absolutely thrilled to have almost all the great grandchildren together, celebrating life.
1 dentist appointment, little Lucia has cavities :(- She doesn't seem too concerned about the procedure, but she also the crazy brave one. Speaking of which....
1 pair of ears pierced. I have never suggested it, but she wanted it done, despite knowing it would hurt for a little bit. She is so proud of them and loves showing people.
1 weekend of kids on a trip with Dan's family to the lake- they had the beach at Waskesiu to themselves and of course went for a swim.
1 bridal shower attended for my future sister in law
2300 kms travelled to BC and back
7 days with my bestie..that's a record, I think and it was so wonderful to be close to her again. Our kids also got along swimmingly. Man, I wish we could live closer.
3 birthdays celebrated with 2 new sparkle balls, you can figure out who got them: Aiden, Carmen and Christy
1 family photo session booked with our friends, Jody and Jon and their family:
0 ice cream consumed. Yup, you read that right.
3 glorious days spent on the beach in my happy place:
5 books read:
First Comes Love, Say When, Nantucket Nights, #GirlBoss, Me Before You.
I would say that either Nantucket Nights or First Comes Love were my favourites out of the 5.
1 gift received in a gift exchange with the girls over on The Blended Blog. Leslie sent me some awesome stuff from a store I have heard tons about in the States: Charming Charlies and I know her daughter shopped there and always loved her cute things. I love the colours she picked out for me and that they all coordinate. Head on over to Alison's blog to see what I sent her.
