Supper Club, Stickers, and Picnics...

That's how we've been spending our days lately. :) 

Our friends, Kristin and Steven, had a group over for a tailgating themed dinner the other night. They grilled hotdogs and burgers, and everyone else brought their favorite tailgating treat. It was such a great way to do a big group dinner, and something we should do more often! Plus, this was a group of friends that we love but we rarely get to see because they are on the other side of town.  So, it was a treat to spend time with them and all their cute little kiddos.  It was a madhouse...but a happy madhouse. :)
 Haven reading to Lyla, Leah Kate, and Eden. :)

 The unbelievable treats Ellen Hillis brought for all the kiddos! So cute!

 Lyla and Eden obviously enjoyed them.

 All the kids chowing down on their treats.

I've been in major clean out mode lately...told you, nesting has already kicked in. And I found a box of  my old "teacher stuff" the other day, with tons of stickers. Jackpot! Countless hours of entertainment for sweet Lyla...

So proud of her masterpiece...

Also, we've been SOAKING UP this gorgeous weather!!! Like upper 60's, lower 70's kind of weather! I keep having to remind myself that this will not be here for long! So, we spend most of our days going on walks, feeding the ducks, playing at the park, playing with the neighborhood kids outside, and eating lots of picnics! :) Lyla is really into picnics these days and asks for one every day. It started last Saturday when John David and I packed a lunch and took it to Wilson Park and told her we were going on a picnic. So, I'm pretty sure we've eaten our lunch outside almost every day this week. Once at the park, once on the chickfila patio, and twice in our own backyard... 

 She was so excited to see what was in the bag.
 A Capri Sun...SCORE!!
I'm hoping this continues to be a daily tradition until it's too cold. It's the sweetest time ever. Today, we sang every song she knows. She called the hogs a few times. And, after almost every bite, she would say "mmmmmm....De-Wicious!" while she rubs her tummy. hahaha!!! 

So, there's a little glimpse into our week...and now Happy Friday everyone!! We are looking forward to Bikes, Blues, and BBQ, watching the Razorback game on Saturday, and the Tulsa Zoo on lots of pics to come, I'm sure! :)

  1. I am cracking up at the way you ate your peanut butter sandwich. Just nibbled all the inside and left a perfect little layer of crust around the edges. Hysterical! Ohh, how I love you!!!
