My cute friend, Ginger, has recently started what she calls "Friday Lemonade" where each Friday she lists all the "sweet" and all the "sour" of her week.
I have found myself dying over lots of her sours and have realized that far too often I just let all my phone pictures pile up and kind of forget lots of the details behind them.
So I've decided to kind of do something similar because I know it is something I will look back on often in years to come, especially as my kids get older and I want to look back and remember this stage of our lives that is already slipping by waaaaay too fast.
It is obviously not Friday, but I didn't want to let two whole weeks pass by without posting since I took approximately 1 billion pictures in the last week and a half.
So, without further ado, here are a few of our highs and lows this last week (or so)...
Highs: Three day weekend, holla! - A trip to the zoo which included a twist ice cream cone split between the sisters and I - Lou Lou pulling herself up on everything and crawling like it ain't no thang - My debut as the new primary pianist - A date night to the temple and getting there early enough to jump on the earlier session (a major first for us) - A weenie and mallow roast at the Larson's - Celebrating sweet Erica's 30th birthday - Dinner in the backyard - A date with Minnie to Swig - A Sunday walk up Memory Grove and watching Minnie try and hit a baseball - Listening to Minnie's personal prayers - Teething is finally over (for a minute) and Louie is a happy little lady - Painting the piano bench...I can't stop painting things - A surprise visit from Nick and Megan Saturday morning - Ginger hooking me up with a ticket to Alt Summit - Finally finding curtains I like for the front room - After dinner cookie bake off while Bob finished up some yard work - Minnie getting a big bag of Jelly Belly's at church from she and Louie's biggest fan (my visiting teacher that I love so, so much) - Enjoying those Jelly Belly's on the church lawn while Bob had an interview - An adventure to Antelope Island - A new box of books for Minnie
Lows: Toooooo much yard work (poor Bobby) - A rainy Saturday - Driving all the way to Ikea (30 minutes) and then pulling into the parking lot and realizing I'd left my wallet at home (I almost cried) - Lou Lou pooping in the bathtub (the first time that has ever happened to us...Minnie hopped out of the tub in about 0.5 seconds flat) - Peeling skin after not applying enough sunscreen in St. George...boo - Losing our zoo ride punch pass and not being able to ride the merry-go-round - Louie putting everything in her mouth - Missing out on a girl's getaway to Bear Lake -A blistered toe in the Great Salt Lake...zing! - Starting Whole 30 last Tuesday morning with Nikki and then promptly quitting right after lunch because we were starving (embarrassing, I know)
