Weekly Wrap-Up (Sept 1st-21st ’14)

Okay yeah so I’ve been a little bit slacking on these update posts. But here is a little bit of what we have been up to the last few weeks…..

Okay so first, the trip to the beach. We hadn’t been there all summer. So we just had to get there. It was windy and chilly, but amazing none the less, and the kids loved it anyways. Actually, the water was super warm.

The kids have been going to the park down the street almost daily to collect black walnuts(seen below), I’m tempted to stop spending so much money on nuts and just pick them from the trees….J/K We’ll save them for the squirrels. We also put together our favorite USA puzzle.

Oh, we went to a picnic with lots of yummy food and fun stuff…..The kids had a blast, even when it started pouring and we waited in line for 40 minutes for some balloon animals, they were still smiling!
