Project 365, Week 26

Wow...what a full week!  As I was looking through my folders to choose which pictures to post, I couldn't believe that all of this was from this one week.  Seems like much longer ago, at least the first part of the week.  I have so much to post about, but for now I'm going to take the Project 365 "shortcut" and just give you the highlights. 

June 20
Father's Day.  So thankful it is something to celebrate.  My kids are so blessed to have Shaun for a father.  We had a quiet day at home...Shaun worked on his car, with a little help.

And later a cooling shower came by and he danced in the rain with his princess.  Some serious heart-meltage going on!  We are so crazy-blessed to have him in our lives.
June 21
Our first-of-the-season trip to the splash park, which is 2 minutes from our house.  Aiden was not too sure, though I suspect by the end of the summer he'll be unstoppable.
We had an impromptu DQ date with some cousins who were unexpectedly in town and then we met Grandma down at the field to watch Sienna's (left) softball game.
Oh, and we snuck some pool time in, too.  We couldn't be happier with our $4 pool that is in its 5th year.
June 22
Eleven ladies came to my house for a summer bible study we are doing.  We had a great time talking over enchiladas and getting to know each other.  Can't wait to learn from the book of Ruth!
June 23
Nana and Grandpa John arrived from Florida and were immediately "on duty".  Nana plays and reads and laughs and pretends tirelessly with the girls and they love their time with her.
They are also excited to have their brother rooming with them while his room serves as the guest room. 
June 24
Happy 5th birthday, Avery.  We celebrated the day at Boston Children's Museum and then out to dinner.  Shaun and I are in disbelief that we have a five year-old.
June 25
On your mark, get set...GO!  Shaun and the girls and his grandparents headed off for golfing and a family picnic.
I stayed home and did preparations for Avery's birthday party and then Aiden and I went to visit a dear friend who was visiting from out-of-state for a few days with her two children.  It was an amazingly beautiful day and we enjoyed being outside in her parents' yard.
June 26
We had a combined birthday party for Avery (24th) and Trevor (29th) at my sister's house.  Everyone got to go in the pool and play in the times and good eats!  I think its so cool that our family, her in-laws and my in-laws can get together and enjoy each other.
Those are the highlights.  Going over to Sara's blog to (finally) link up.

What a fun & BUSY week! Your children are really just too cute. You don't want to hear this, but I can already see in Avery's face the beautiful young woman she's going to be.
