Summer adventures

First week of summer down.  It was a pretty good week I think.  We cleaned, we played.  We swam.  We had a few arguments!  Yep it happens.

We had friends over or went to friends house on Tuesday.  Tuesday is also $5 movie day at the theater near us, so Dad took 2 of the kids with a friend, to see “How to Train Your Dragon, 2”.  It was a hit!!

Wednesday we cleaned and got some things done since they had gone to a movie the night before.  Normally we thought we would go to the movie at the same theater since they have a summer kids special for $2.  We will check that out next week I think.

Then Thursday is Library day.  The Library has a summer reading program with some pretty good shows usually on Thursday.  This week was, well, not a pretty good show, but he had a cool collection of reptiles with him!!  We picked up a bunch of books and signed up for the summer reading program.  I found this gem

Library trip- Found this amazing Library book.  I started reading it to the family last night.  I laughed and laughed!!

After that, we went and waded through the muddy fields and picked some strawberries.  Not too many as it was almost closing time.  We were able to get a tray full at least.  Most have been eaten already!!!

The last thing we did was buy some new chicks!  Wyandots, Americaunas, buff Orpintons, Silver lace something or nother…  Sorry, forgot that name!!!  There are 10 new ones and then 30 new meat chickens will come in August.  (After the wedding!!)

Friday, has been called “New Place Day.”  So we had gift certificates for “SkyZone” so we headed over there.  It was loud, Obnoxious and AMAZING!!!  They had a blast!  For 2 hours they jumped, played dodgeball and flipped into a foam pit!!!  I read a magazine while they played.  20140620_151220

Today, we checked out a new Farm Market.  I was so excited to buy fresh produce!!  I know, its weird!!  But look at these awesome finds!!   Son 4 bought himself a HOT noodle dish which he loved!!  Fun times!!
