Friday Finds and Favorites: Family Fun!

Hello Friends!

It’s been a week since my last post! I can see why many fellow bloggers choose to take a break or scale back in the summer months. It can be tough to keep up with a blogging schedule when everyone is away on vacation, out enjoying the sunshine, etc.  So today will be a picture heavy post so I can play catch up. 😉

A few weeks ago, we visited Hickory Dickory Dock. It’s a local Chuck E. Cheese-esque kids play place. (It especially works for us since D is scared of Chuck E. Cheese. ;)) In my humble opinion, it was much better! Hickory Dickory Dock has a three story play place, a separate play area for kids under 5 years, an arcade, mini bowling, mini golf, and a concession stand. The funnel cake fries are the bomb dot com! 😉 D loved it so much that he wants to have his birthday party there. (I guess I better get on reserving it!)

He is so silly!

Fearless!

The last/first weekend of June/July, we spent with our besties in Greenville. We had a tasty cook out the first evening, including smores for dessert and before we left we all went and watched Despicable Me 3 at the local cinema. The kids loved it…Not going to lie, I fell asleep! ( I think it was more so to do with my meds. :/ )

Best friends! <3

We then traveled to Anderson and met my mom for lunch at Denny’s. Afterwards, we moved D’s stuff to mom’s car and he was off to Nana’s for the week! He wasn’t far from my thoughts though. <3

John and I went to my favorite commercial book store, Books a Million and renewed our membership and of course, got books! 😉 We then enjoyed a very quiet evening at home. I had a few days to work on projects while John was at work before our trip. It was nice to get things done and not have a tiny tornado following me! 😉 On July 4, we went super non traditional this year. We both were not feeling very patriotic given the current political climate. So we skipped the usual Independence Day festivities and went out to lunch, went to car wash, and ended the evening watching Pineapple Express.) It wasn’t your typical celebration, but I think it was just what we needed that day.

This week’s fill-in’s:

My inner child_____________________.

My favorite month is ________________.

My favorite commercial is                      ,because                                .

Personally, I don’t care for                                    .

My inner child probably gets out more often now than when I was a child! There’s a HUGE sense of freedom when you become comfortable in your own skin and I’m more comfortable now than I’ve ever been.

My favorite month is October. I just love the cool crisp Autumn nights. We always have a fun Fall bucket list to keep things interesting!

My favorite commercial is—I don’t really have a favorite commercial. The only time I really pay attention to commercials is during the Super Bowl and at Christmas. I love holiday commercials usually.

Personally, I don’t care for gossip or people making others feel inferior. Who gives anyone the right to treat someone so poorly?!

Be sure to stop by on Wednesday for my post on our trip to Asheville, NC! Now it’s your turn. Link up your finds and favorite posts of the week. Don’t forget to grab a button! (optional!)

 



 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Be safe out there!
