Sickness, Swimming and Slime

I somehow skipped blogging last week.  I was just busy having summer fun! 

We had dinner with friends and went for a night swim.   (How cute is the nexting box she is using as a planter? I love it!) 

We went to the splash park one night and had so much fun playing! 

Except for their crazy mom who forgot towels.  So we went for a long walk to dry off.  

It has been so horribly hot.  It's been a heat index of around 105 the last few days.  I sweat just trying to get in my car.  

Hollis had a stomach bug all night one night.  So we laid low at home the next day and watched a lot of movies while I did a LOT of laundry.  

We have gone to the gym several days.  I love how much these three love each other! 

Will Holden had his last day of summer MDO.  He went to a different church this summer and had such a great experience.  While he had his last day, Hollis had a play date with Joseph.  And Harper and I ran errands.  It was nice to have a little one on one time with Harper.  

The girls talked me into making slime.  It was actually easy and kind of neat! If you haven't made any - you just mix Elmer's glue, a drop of food coloring, 1 tsp of baking soda and several drops of contact solution.  That's it.  Then just work it with your hands.  

We also had swim team most of last week but I didn't take any pictures of that.  

Saturday I talked Scott into taking the kids to see Despicable Me 3.  Will Holden is OBSESSED with minions and he will sit so still at home watching them.  So I thought maybe if we went during nap time - he would sit and watch.  I am a little over eager about these things.  

His face says it all.  We walked the halls during the previews.  At one point, he ran into the wrong theatre and walked up to a woman and shouted "HI!".  While I scooped him up so mortified.  He lasted in the movie about 10 minutes before he started making a break for the front of the theatre and I finally took him out.  We drove around for the rest of the movie and he fell quickly asleep.  It was just a little too exciting for him.  We will try again when he's 3.  Maybe.  

The girls wanted to sleep in some of my long sleeved tees Saturday night.  You wouldn't know it was 105 outside by the fuzzy slippers.  I guess we keep it too cool in the house. ha! 

Will Holden took his turn of being sick all night Saturday night so Scott took the girls to church Sunday morning.  They LOVE to eat at this cheap Mexican place by our church for lunch so Scott took them afterwards.  I can't get over how grown up they look in this picture.  

We have three weeks left of summer.  It's rolling by quickly.
