We have survived!

Well, amazingly we have survived our first full week of summer vacation. With all this rain we've been having it has been a bit of a challenge.

Monday was our stay at home and clean day and the girls and I totally cleaned their room and even moved around some furniture. They are excited with the new look of their room and I'm excited that it opens up the room and gives them more space to play.

Tuesday we planned a picnic at the park and the weather actually cooperated and we didn't get rained on. We all had a great time being outside and nobody wanted to come home. It was poor Emersynne that convinced us we needed to go home so she could get a nap.

Wednesday and Thursday were more of the same. Rain, Rain, and lots of Rain! We went to the library Thursday morning to get out of the house, did crafts, made cupcakes, played Hide and Go Seek and tried to come up with other ways to keep from going crazy.

The cupcake crew

Anthony and Natalie's masterpieces. I knew that Christmas candy would come in handy eventually!

Trevor was more interested in eating instead of creating and Abigail's never made it to the decorating phase. She just ate the frosting and candy out of her bowl and then started in on her cupcake. She had a good time so I guess that is what really matters!

Jeremiah is home from work today and the sun is shining! Looks like it will be a good day! Time to get outside and enjoy the day.
