Make A Spalsh

Morning, all :) I wish I could say that I slept in soundly until 8am, but at least I slept in till 8am. I woke up before 6am when Captain America left for PT, and had trouble going back to sleep. Sigh. But, I gave it a valiant effort - ha!

I ate breakfast, and got the kids going, and straightened up (yeah, sounds like the day before, right?), and hung for a bit. I helped Maddie pick her sunburn (gross, I know, but I LOVE picking sunburns....), and we got ready for the sprinkler park. The church girls do play group there at 10am on Wednesdays, and we hadn't been there yet. So we thought we'd give it a try.

We showed up there a few minutes after 10am, and the kids played for about an hour. Yeah, it was a long hour - hehehe. I think we all decided that we like the big pool better - LOL!

Me and my grouchy face.... why is it grouchy, you ask?

Because Jake and Tom were fighting, and now they're in time out. 5 minutes on the bench did WONDERS for their attitude - ha!
We left the sprinkler park at around 11am, and headed to free lunch. Ham or Roast Beef sandwiches with cheese, carrots and celery, and cantaloupe or watermelon, with milk. It was a good lunch.

Here's Free Lunch info, cause a few people were asking about it... HERE

After lunch, we headed back home. Captain America came home for lunch at 1pm, and left at around 2pm. WE hung on the backporch for a while. After he went back to work, Maddie and I made a quick trip to Fallas Paredes, Family Dollar, and the Dollar tree. I got a few household things.

We dropped by Sonic on the way home, and got ourselves some Happy Hour drinks. We came back home, cooked spaghetti for the kids, and Captain America made it home before it was time to eat. The kids ate first at the dining room table, and the grown ups supervised. There's not room for everyone to sit, as it's a 6 person table and we have 7 kids. We squish one extra in, though.

After the kids were done, the grown ups ate dinner on the back patio and watched the kids play on the playground. Here's a few pics of the evening.

Jake, and me trying to fit myself in the pic. No, I didn't get my hair cut. It's pulled back in a pony, but it's falling out of it a bit - ha!

So after dinner, we cleaned up, and needed to have kids to the church at 7pm. Eme and Jake had activities at church. Captain America had a meeting at 8pm there. SO, we swung by Circle K to get drinks and slushies, then dropped Eme and Jake off at the church, then continued on to the park by the church. Here's what it looks like:

Me and my soda (I was getting a migraine, so I thought that the caffeine would help. Yeah, I think it was too late. I'd already taken on Migraine pill, and it hadn't touched it)

Jimmy and the community slushy

Captain America (I like this pic of him :)

Tom on the climbing tower thingy

Captain America and I <3>
Joe, Jim, Captain America, and Ella


Lily and Maddie

Maddie and I (can you tell we're sisters???)

Captain America headed to his meeting, and we gathered up everyone and headed home. He was gonna pick up Eme and Jake when they were done and bring them back home with him.

I put Joe and Jim to bed, and let Tom read in his bedroom for a while. I sat down to blog and design. My head was still hurting, so I took an additional pill. It's only 9:12pm, and I'm getting ready to go to bed early. After I design you a quick freebie.

Tomorrow I have a "Meet the New Commander" meeting at lunch time, and then we're planning on going to the pool after. Should be a good time :)
