Be Our Guest

Sadie and I were delighted to be invited as guests on our cousin’s swimming pool membership today.

We met up with their family, my sister and her daughter, and my mom for an afternoon of fun in the sun. We had such a nice time talking, relaxing, and playing with the kids.

Sadie ended up liking the adult pool and was jumping into my arms. She made my retired swimmer heart happy 😉

While we were out, we had a house guest! The pool was located about an hour from our house and I knew we would be gone for most of the afternoon, so I had a dog walker come and take Niva on a little jaunt while we were out.

I think Niva enjoyed her walk and got nice and tired out because she didn’t eat any brownie mix while we were gone 😉

Other things of note:

  • We filmed another vlog yesterday! My favorite part is Sadie and Niva running around while I try and explain how to cook breakfast casseroles.
  • Jimmy sent me the photo below and it melted my heart. He took Sadie to work with him on Saturday for a little and she brought one of her toy dogs and accidentally left it there. He said he found it on Monday morning and it made his day 🙂

Tell me about your day!

Have you ever found something totally random on your desk? —> I have a Paw Patrol sticker book sitting on mine at the moment, lol.

Saturday and Sunday Snapshots

We had such a lovely weekend! It was a great mix of family time, productivity, and fun. On Saturday, my sister, brother-in-law, niece, and their dog came over for the day so the boys could work on our patio renovation

It’s coming along!

While the boys worked, us girls spent time grocery shopping, playing with Sadie and Caroline, walking the dogs, cooking, and laughing. We did a lot of laughing 🙂

At one point, I pulled out Sadie’s hedgehog learning toy for Caroline to try out and it was absolutely adorable watching her get so excited when she put a spike in the hedgehog’s back! I filmed a little clip of her joy and it makes me smile every time I watch it. 

Sunday was spent watching church online, mowing, gardening, and brushing out Niva’s fur.

This pile of fur was solely from brushing Niva’s tail!!

Vegetables from vegetable garden  squash, yellow tomato, cherry tomatoes, and arugula

We harvested our first yellow tomato from the garden.
