Drake’s Birthday

IMG_2921

Friday we used first day/ first week of school as an excuse to go out to dinner. Pumpkin was set on Culvers and so we screwed around the house until we were hungry and then we went. IMG_20140815_190247

The kids all ate pretty good.

So we got ice cream at the end and of course everyone ate that well. After dinner we put Bean in bed and the big kids relaxed and watched a movie. Stooks, Stephen and Derrick came over and we played Izzyball in the driveway. Heath finished up the movie with the kids and got them in bed. We had some great games playing late into the night. Heath came out to watch/talk a bit then went to bed.

I got to bed really late. Pumpkin got me up in the morning and we had some breakfast and everyone else got up then we went for a jog\bike ride.

We ran along the trail a ways and stopped to watch ducks and stuff.

Then we loaded back up and ran back.

We went home and I cooked up some lunch and we got everyone cleaned up and down for naps. Heath and I got good naps in too.

Then we got dressed, packed the van and headed to Drake’s Birthday Party.

I thought we would leave at 8 but we ended up staying till like 9:30. The kids were exhausted and we got them home and right to bed.

Heath and I watched World War Z and then calmed down and went to bed. It was another late night. Pumpkin got me up early again. So I got busy packing. I made up a breakfast dinner and got a bunch of stuff together then we woke everyone else up and got them going. We went to Lakeside Nature Center and had a breakfast on a picnic table.

It was good and the kids ate well.

Then we put on our packs and started a hike.

We had planned to put the girls on our backs for training but they really wanted to hike and we were not in a hurry so we let them.

This resulted in us finding a million treasures.

I think the trial does about a 2 mile loop. When we got back to the start the nature center was open so we went in to check on the animals.

We also played some games, colored and the kids put on a puppet show for us.

We were getting hungry and needed some grocerys so we headed to Aldi. While there we grabbed a take and bake pizza that turned out really good.

It was like 2:00 before we got lunch so everyone was hungry and tired. After lunch we took naps again. Heath and Peanut went to his soccer game with the hopes the girls would sleep and I would get the house clean.

The girls did not get much sleep but I did get the kitchen and family room really cleaned up while they played dress up destroy the bedroom.

When Peanut and Heath got home we ate jambalaya I had made in the crock pot. It was pretty good. Peanut had 3 servings. We watched the chiefs while we ate then got the girls in bed. We made it a little longer before also getting to bed.

Not sure if I showed it yet but the sandbox project turned out really good.

The kids always come out a mess but it is lots of fun.
