A busy, crazy weekend.

  To be clear, I'm counting Friday as part of the weekend.  It had a weekend vibe.

On Friday morning Megan and I took all six kids to the movies to see Lego Batman. There was a lot of confusion with theaters and where we should go (all the fault of the theater employees telling a whole bunch of people the wrong theater to go to) but we finally got it settled and enjoyed the show. 
Elliott and I went to Target that afternoon.  I bought this shirt from the little girl's section.  It's an XL and yes, I intend to wear it myself. 
On Friday night the sisterhood was invited to Joni's house to see it for the first time and have dinner. My kids decided to stay home because they had just been there and they needed a little kid free time.  I can't say I was sad to go without them. 

All pictures compliments of Lauren. 

On Saturday Spencer and I left the house at 6:20 to go to his swim meet.  I volunteered as a timer for the entire meet. 

Spencer was in my lane for breast stroke. 

Michael came for the second half and got to see Spencer swim butterfly and freestyle.  He took these pictures. 

After the swim meet we rushed home, ate breakfast, showered and immediately left to attend Hollis's birthday party.  It was originally scheduled to be at our house, but we didn't think that was a great idea to have twenty people over with a busted AC, so Megan moved it to Peter Piper Pizza. 

The birthday girl. 

The slow eaters, Elliott and Hollis. 

Spencer and I did this virtual reality "ride" a bunch of times. 

Megan used our wrapping paper for the presents.  I bought this paper for Elliott's 5th birthday, and then never used it for anything, so I'm glad it was finally utilized. 

Fake sleeping. 
The little girl with the blonde pony tail is named Natalie.  She was not impressed at all when I told her I had the same name.  The waitress assigned to our party was also Natalie.  It was like a Natalie convention. 

I knew the theme of the party was rainbow.  I wore the rainbow shirt on purpose.  I did not know just how well I would match the party supplies. 

I mean, come on!  This deserves an award. 

Not quite like a trip to Disneyland, but still fun. 

We were looking forward to a relaxing evening at home after the party.  Some of us got it.  Megan and Hadley did not.  They ended up at urgent care dealing with Hadley having strep. 

Elliott got a relaxing shower though.  He wanted to test out the twisted towel on the head look. 

Sunday was Hollis's real birthday.  We took this picture. 

To compare to this picture the day she was born. 

2013 to 2017
Megan, Scott, Hadley and Hollis left around noonish on Sunday to head home to California.  After they left Michael took pictures of our gazebos.  And then, it the awful afternoon heat, took them down for good.  We just can't keep spending $240 every less than two years to replace the sun shades. 

Bye bye gazebos.  You were nice and shady when you weren't being ripped to shreds by sun and wind. 

While Michael was working on that project I worked on giving myself a jamicure/manicure. 

Then I put on my shoes. 

And my shirt.  And Michael didn't have a shirt to wear, but we went to see Wonder Woman. 

I practiced a selfie while he was in the bathroom, but it was just too dark to work. 

This is highly lightened. 
And then, finally, the craziness was over.  Well, except the AC was still broken.  

There is good news though.  I'm pretty much caught up in the blogging timeline.  It's Wednesday the 28th and I've blogged through Sunday the 25th.  That's not too shabby.
