Zoo Day with My Little Men

The big kids have been enjoying camp this week so I ended the week with my little guys by a trip to the zoo. It was Gabe's choice.  We love the zoo!

The lions were out and we even got to hear one roar.  Pretty cool!
The kids always enjoy climbing on the animal statues.
Love these 2 crazy boys!
Cooling off in the splash pad.
Gabe running with sharks.
After the splash pad they wanted to play at the playground.
It's a good day when they are out cold on the way home.
When we got home they ran to our yard and each of them picked me a flower!  It melted my heart!  It was Job's first time to pick me a flower!

Memorial Day Weekend 2014

We went to Naples, FL for Memorial Day weekend and had a great time together.  Here's pics from our trip.

Craziness at the hotel. 
My beach beauty found lots of shells.
Gabe just doesn't stop.  He's always running and digging and swimming.
I love, love, love my new swimsuit from Rey Swimwear . If you're looking for a modest, vintage inspired swimsuit look no further.
Perfect Day!
Job loves the beach!
Some sand building going on.
The one time Mj was not in the water.
We had fun walking around Tin City.  The kids loved this rocket ride.
RITA'S!!!!!!  We don't have Rita's in Miami and we sure do miss it!
We are happy people!
More digging in the sand.
My kids are fish!
The one night I walked around hand-in-hand with Job.  I took a picture so I could capture it.  Some day I'm gonna miss this!
Movie night
More beach fun!
Dinner at the Bonefish Grill
Checking out the dolphins and pelicans at the Pier.
My love
Sad it was our last day and we had to leave.
We stopped at a park before we got into the Everglades for the kids to run off some energy.
It was so hot! I think we wore MJ out.
Thankful for a long weekend to get away with my family!

What Has Summer Vacation Looked Like So Far

Now that our school year is over what have we been doing on summer vacation.... Well, we've been keeping busy.  The first thing I did was spring clean my house! LOL  Sorry, no pictures of that. I've got a schedule for the kids for the summer.  Each day is something special to do - Make it Monday, Take a Trip Tuesday, Wet & Wild Wednesday - Thinking Thursday - Friendly Friday.  I also have a schedule throughout the day.  The kids really do so well when they can see what comes next. We've got Bible Time, Outdoor time, Art or Piano, Reading, Review Time (they each do some review work from school so they don't forget everything they have learned.  Jadyn really needs this and is loving having school work to do.  Mj doesn't enjoy it, but he does it anyway. lol), Ipad Time, TV time, Clean Up time.  I move things around every day so they don't know what the day holds for them.  So what else have we been up to....

Mark's been playing softball Monday nights with a bunch of guys from church. We've enjoyed watching him play.
Job always finds something fun to do outside. On this day fitting himself in a 5 gallon bucket was tons of fun.
We've been doing lots of reading!
And lots of cooking.
We got to check out a new park with some friends.

MJ is the human rollercoaster for the little kids.
We've gone to some birthday parties.

We've been kind to each other (don't worry! My kids aren't strange they do fight ALOT, but for some reason I don't have pictures of the fighting. lol)
We've enjoyed some fun art projects.

Job checks on our lizard that lives in our garden hose every morning.
We've played lots of games.
And we've enjoyed some fun movie time together.
Did I mention that we've been to birthday parties? =)

So that's what we've been up to and summer has just begun!
