this and that

The beginning of our summer has been busy.  It seems like we have had something to do every single day since we got home from my birthday at the beach.  When summer started I was worried we'd be bored, but somehow we have stayed busy!  I am glad we have some down time coming up.

This morning we went to Harkins movie theater in Southlake for their summer movie time.  Each week for 10 weeks during the summer we get to see a movie.  It is the coolest thing because it is so inexpensive, I got tickets for three of us for $18.  Not each, but all together!   This morning we saw Horton Hears a Who.  The kids loved it and so did I.   It was a cute movie and reminded me of The Lorax.  

Hayden's preschool church is hosting Vacation Bible school this week.  I was hesitant to send the kids because it is from 6:00-8:00 in the evening.  I was worried they would be so tired from the day.  Yesterday was the first day and they both did great.  We usually put the kids to bed by 7:30 or 8:00 because they do not sleep in.  No matter what time we put them to bed they are up by 7:00 am.  This morning they both slept until 7:30!  They really seem to really be enjoying VBS!!

Hayden only went to school 2 days a week during the school year, so he is used to being at home.  I think he is loving having Layla home with him.  They have their moments of fighting and bickering, but so far they seem to be having fun together playing here at home.  They play with Legos for hours.  It is so fun to see the creations they come up with.  

They are also enjoying building and playing in forts.  They throw blankets all over their rooms, and if Gary has a break from work he'll help them build cooler forts than they can build.  That may be a blog post all of its own!

Speaking of Gary.  He smoked the best pork shoulder today.  It is so delicious.  I made a fresh batch of Cole-slaw too.  We had a tasty dinner before we dropped the kids off at VBS.

Annnnd now I must go get my children from VBS!  

I hope you have a good night.  I am planning to put the babes to bed and watch some RHOC. 
 Gotta love hearing a group of ladies act all loud and obnoxious!  I just can't stop watching.  heehee!

Wait, I got distracted...did you say they play together for hours? You mean that legos will buy you uninterupted play? I'm buying legos. Like now.
