So today the kids pulled out "Water Balloon War" out of the "Summer Fun Jar" so they had lots of fun having a water balloon fight in the yard with each other and then we filled up the pool and played in the back yard this afternoon.

The kids pulled out "Camp In The Living Room With Tents" from their "Naughty Or Nice Jars" so they will be doing that this evening for fun!

Put some good use to some banana's about to go to waiste and made some super YUMMY Banana Muffins!

38 Days Left Of Summer..Bowling Fun

Today the kids pulled out "Bowling" from our "Summer Fun" jar! So we went to enjoy our free summer bowling program that we signed up for (plus cost of shoes) and met up with a friend of ours who we haven't seen in a long time because she's been out of town! So Brooklyn was stoked to get to see one of her best friends!

I had to stop at the store on the way home to get a few things and they had a bunch of summer items on sale 50% off at Target! So the kids picked out this really cute golf set that was on sale and played with that when they got home. I also finally got a pic nic basket! I've been dying to get one since we go on so many pic nics but I always seem to miss finding them! They had a cute wooden one and a cloth one. I wound up getting the cloth one for $5!

Had some super yummy sushi for dinner and won some Car's 2 Movie tickets tonight so the kids are excited!!
