We had a wonderful but busy weekend! We kicked off the weekend on Friday with a trip to the drive in. We saw Despicable Me 3 with the intention of staying for Wonder Woman. But...the week exhaustion kicked in and we left after the first movie.
The next day brought a visit from Jeremy. He was in town for a few days so he spent the day at our swimming and having fun. After he left, we went on an ice cream run and stopped at one go my stomping grounds as a child. We used to spend many of summer weekends at Crane Creek. It's now grown over and not as pretty as I remembered it. It was sad. But I later learned they turned it is dedicated to wildlife.
I was fortunate to be off work on Monday before the fourth. Daddy had to work so the girls and I met some friends for a play date. First up, though...Addy Grace ear checkup. This girl had a wicked ear infection for two weeks. She did so well!
We met Roz and her mama for lunch and then headed to the playground to play. We finished up with ice cream with another family who was visiting from Georgia. They are making a big move internationally so I'm grateful we got to meet (for the first time!) before they made their big move.
Ava is completely into taste testing different things. She roped me into buying 5 different kinds of soda's at the store and her and Addy spent the next hour blindfolded and taste testing.
We finished the weekend with the family in Woodville to enjoy fireworks.
A couple of months back, one of our own FCC mama's took her final breath and went to be with Jesus. Jana was a kind southern soul whom everyone loved the minute they met her. She was genuine, loving, and oh so funny! It was a sad day for our group but we decided to celebrate her life in the best way possible. We dedicated our June LNO to our own little Southern cooking night. A huge thanks to Mama Heather for opening her home and allowing us all to hang in her back yard. The food was off the charts. We made memories and talked about some of our favorites of Jana. It was a wonderful night to celebrate a wonderful woman.
Addy's best friend at preschool was Audrina. Since Addy finished school, we haven't seen Audrina. Her mom reached out because Audrina was having a hard time and was missing Addy so much. That just warmed my heart and made me sad! We arranged a picnic and play at the park.
And surprised them! They ran to each other and hugged for many minutes!
It was so sweet!
Unfortunately they will be going to different schools so we have to make the effort to keep them close!
