4th of July, Weekend Fun, and Family

July is half over already?! Wowza!

4th of July was a fun weekend for us. We enjoyed a BBQ with our NFF Family. The girls loved the pool, and the youngest didn’t want to get out. From light to night she was in there.

I was able to get in some mom/daughter dates over the extended weekend as well. Both the younger ones wanted a frozen yogurt date, so frozen yogurt they got.

My oldest picked a movie, The  House, so we went and enjoyed some AC, good snacks, and some laughs.

We celebrated 4th of July with my husbands family. The girls all loved being around family and seeing their cousins! It was a very nice relaxing afternoon, and again the two younger ones loved the pool time!

The following weekend we had some “business” mixed with personal. The younger two girls had their yearly Dr. check ups then we headed to Tucson to visit family. The girls love going to see family! We enjoyed a great lunch and a good visit. Then we headed to The Red Lion Inn to stay the night so the drive there and back wouldn’t be so hard.

I was pretty impressed at what we got. The room had a partial kitchen, and I say that because while it didn’t have an oven, it had a cook top including a few pans to use. They even provide a little Palmolive Dish soap!

There is a complimentary happy hour, and they have soda for those who are too young or just do not drink wine. The girls were pretty happy with the snack options.

My oldest had some online school work she needed to catch up on, so while she stayed inside I took the little two out to…can you guess?….that’s right THE POOL! lol

The hotel also included a breakfast in the morning and I have to say it was one of the best breakfasts we have had at a hotel (one that was complimentary anyways). They had sausage, potatoes, eggs, biscuits and gravy, fruit, cereal, hot cereal, waffles, bagels and other pastries. The girls were happy and had seconds!

Yesterday, 7/12, I took the girls to their first Westgate Wednesday event they do during the summer. They loved it! To cut the photo line this week you had to show a receipt from Wich Wich for $15 or more, between certain dates, so I took them there to get something to eat. I love their Ultimate BLT! The girls enjoyed a grilled cheese.

Then when we were done eating, we were able to go get pictures taken with Iron Man and Spider-Man! Thank goodness we were able to bi-pass the regular line we would’ve been standing there for the whole event! The girls had a little fun in the little splash pad area that is there and then just enjoyed dancing and getting called up on stage for a few games. My youngest even won Fractured Prune Donut Pack!

I definitely plan on making this a regular thing next year as this year is almost over for the summer events.

It’s so important to get in as much time with our kiddos as possible, esp if you are a working parent. Make the most of your time with them, let them know they are loved.

Thanks for catching up on our craziness!

Oh, I will leave you with this. I am now 19 weeks along with little Arizona! Almost half way done!
