For Memorial day weekend we headed way down to South Padre Island to play on the beach and we surprised the kids by going to Schlitterbahn water park there. The kids had a blast, but we didn't get many photos. I blame the lack of photos for part of the reason I don't feel as compelled to write the stories behind the photos. While we were at the beach we also went on a pirate ship and Jeff and I took a sandcastle building class.
Since we have returned I have been making a real effort to be engaged as a mom. I admit that I had been phoning it in a bit the last month of so, but I have vowed for the kids to have a fun summer. To accomplish that I made a schedule for our days and a pinterest inspired summer bucket list.
We have been playing hide and seek
sitting in boxes
building rocket ships
flying rocket ships
and reading to little sister.
At the end of May Jeff and I celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary. I was so surprised when I found this gift waiting for me! He got me a beautiful Coach purse! I don't think I matched him with just a new grill, but I also cleaned his truck. We are looking forward to many more anniversaries to come.
We are looking forward to fun and visits this summer so keep checking back!
