our week by iPhone - week 86

it's vacation week!

we left tuesday night to spend the week with sam's family in eastern washington & have been having so much fun enjoying friends, family & sun.  it's too bad every week can't be vacation week.

here's what it looked like in iPhotos.

monday.  started the week off with some stroller strides where the kiddos had a little race of their own after class.  parker was pretty excited about crossing that finish line.  after stroller strides it was off to the doctor to hear baby brother's heartbeat & then back home where p-ray anxiously waited for his dad to come home.

sam & parker spent the night working out in the yard {aka parker throwing a tennis ball around while sam pulls weeds} & then parker made it rain at dinner with his rice.  side note:  picking rice out of carpet is a really good time.

tuesday.  we picked sam up at work, ate some lunch & then headed to the sunny side of washington.  parker was a rockstar traveler & LOVED looking at all the windmills & rocks & dirt & trucks out of his window for the first four hours & then slept the last two.  what a stud.

wednesday.  happy independence day america!  we spent the day playing with cousins, bbq-ing & riding scooters on the back patio in the sun.  thanks to the 5:30am wake up, the lack of a nap & the day of doing nothing but running at full speed with big kids, parker had a major 7:30pm meltdown.  that equaled early bedtime & no fireworks for p-ray.  laaaaame.

sam & i stayed back at his parents house & watched fireworks out the window while everyone else went to a big show.  bright side?  i got all kinds of work done & p-ray got an awesome night's sleep.  win win.

thursday.  lots of cousin time, running through sprinklers time & eating snacks out on the porch swing time.  thursday night we hit up family hour at the local aquatic center & ended the night with amazing reeses-peanut-butter-cup s'mores.  pretty sure a day gets no better.

friday.  chinese food with oversized sunglasses, a drive through the gorgeous palouse {think nothing but wheat fields, granges & the occasional tractor as far as you can see} & amazing WSU creamery ice cream.  heck yes vacation.
