weekday recap - {in iPhone pics} w.33


that's how i'm feeling about the coming holiday weekend.  this is pretty much one of my favorite holidays since it almost always consists of good weather, good food, & the actual start of summer in the PNW.  let's all get excited!

but first, i have to share my super fun week spent with my niece & nephew who have been visiting from utah.  here it is:

monday.  after sitting around a good part of the morning we decided to get out & get ourselves some groceries.  i figured these kids needed something to eat eventually, ya know?  so we chowed on some costco samples, loaded up on muffins, ice cream, & reese's puffs & made it home in time for naked-story-time.

what?  you don't have naked story time at your house?  lame.
{ps:  sam is wearing pants in that picture.  i promise.  parker however?  is not.}

tuesday.  after another morning of laziness & video games, we set out to explore downtown olympia.  lots of craziness ensued.  like mustaches-and-monster-mouths-squirrels-in-underpants-vintage-hats-and-sunglasses kinda craziness.  we liked it.

wednesday.  after bekah, parker & i got our workout on i took these guys downtown again for some more randomness.  we explored the wind-up toy store & hit up a brand new cupcake shop.  and yeah, those cupcakes were as good as they look.

then we said goodbye to kyle & sent him back to his grandparents' house to go on a fishing trip with his cousins.  plus he'd probably had enough "little big planet" to last him a lifetime.

thursday.  i left parker & bekah behind to go to work for the day.  it wasn't all bad though... i got to wear my super cute vintage-key necklace from shabby apple that i won in a blog giveaway {thanks amy!} without having to battle a baby trying to shove it down his throat all day.

hooray for free stuff!

friday started out right.  we had a 4th of july specialty class at stroller strides where i may or may not have won a quarter-mile race & got a sweet new hat out of the deal.  yeah, i did.  then all the kiddos lined up to race & i helped parker make his way to the finish line... slowly.

after hitting up the farmer's market for a hot dog {me} & some chicken curry {bekah} we went home so parker could nap & we could meet up with sam who was already home for the long weekend.  our night consisted of mall-shopping, mondo-burrito-eating, movie-marathoning, & eating so many otter-pops i'm pretty sure we all lost count.

and that's how you know it was a good night.

that was our week!  how was yours?  i wanna see, so link up!

Game Rules:
1.  your pictures have to be taken by your camera phone. that's it!  you don't even have to have a picture for every day.  got one camera phone pic of something fun from this week?  link up!

2.  if you want to grab the code below & put it in your post to have the linky with all the thumbnails show up on your blog do it.

but at the very least, post a link to my blog so others can come here to grab the code, too.
the more kids who come out to play, the more fun it will be, right?

  8. Lovin' the key necklace. I have one too although it's not vintage. But if you look at one of my pics from my week in review you can see the sad shape my jewelry box is in and why I can't wear it!
