As we arrived home from vacation, I made it my goal to soak up as much Summer as we possibly could. Since we had nothing, and I mean nothing in our house to eat we headed to the grocery. While there I decided to let the kids pick out their own toppings for a homemade pizza. I can honestly say that they had so very much fun with this, and even loved their pizza. Myself on the other hand, not so much.
We tried to head to the local water park but just as we got there they closed due to thunder. So we headed to no other place than Chick-Fil-A to wait out the storm. When it was over we decided to drive over the splash pad.
The next day, this little firecracker and I headed off for our yearly girls trip to Holiday World. It was actually chilly that morning but we had SO much fun together.
The water rides, log ride, and greasy food was wonderful but it sure knocked me on my bottom for the rest of the day. We decided to stay the night with my parents the next day so we could make our yearly school shopping trip to Opry Mills.
While we were out we in Nashville, we swung by for Charli Beth's first American Girl store. Miss Willow was truly pampered with a new hair style, glasss and earrings. Wasn't she the cutest thing ever? She is now loving her AG dolls more than ever. I hope she continues her love for quiet sometime but that she never wants to go back to their restaurant while there. Eek!
Charli Beth's last day of Summer break up as spent with Meme at work helping out. This little guy had to go back to his daycare while I had meetings. He handled it so well, until we pulled into the parking lot and he just had to pull my Mommy strings by saying, "Oh Mommy, I'm going to miss you so much today."
And just like that Summer was gone. It was a wonderful fun filled, memory making time and I am truly sad to se it go.
