Recently a lot of Elle's friends have started having spend the night sleepovers and she's been bugging me for a little while to have someone over. So last week was the week! Some of our friends were out of town and we both knew we wanted it to be someone Elle knew well and I knew the momma well. So we agreed to have Elle's sweet friend Mary Kenway on a Wednesday night. Got to love summer! She was so excited! We arranged for her to come around 5 that evening. Before she came I ran to CVS to pick up a few things. I got them a couple of treats, some candy for when they watched a movie and then got a few little things in case they wanted to do a spa night but they ended up playing so well and being so content I will save all that stuff for another time!
She got to our house at 5 and were excited about their happies I got them.
A little giraffe stuffy and cups for them to drink out of for the night!
Flashlight fun in their fort.
All ready to settle in on the foldout couch for a movie. They chose Zootopia!
I surprised them with a tray of treats and popcorn! They loved it!
Kenny went to tell them goodnight and took these sweet pictures of them! Elle was
super thrilled with how the night went which made my mama heart happy!
What is a sleepover without more sugar in the way of donuts the next morning!
Daddy made the Shipley's run!
The morning after the sleepover Mary Kenway tagged along with us to take Walker to PDO and then to get Elle a quick haircut. Then we went home and got dressed to go swimming at the pool. Jennifer, Mary Kenway's mom met us there and we had a great day all together. The girls were completely beat by the time we left the pool!

Time for a swim!
On to a few other summer happenings! The last couple of times we have gone to check out books at the library they have had a program. The first time it was wild animals and this past week it was Tommy Terrific doing a magic show. Elle and I have really enjoyed these programs just her and me together. Tommy Terrific had us laughing big time! And she loved telling Kenny all about it later in the day. After the magic show we checked out new books and then walked across the street to have some lunch together at the Grill. It was a great morning.

Elle has told me how much she loves having some time with just me and I love our mornings too.

One day Kenny and I got the kids out of the house for some lunch at the Union and then we brought some balls to run around the drill field for a few minutes. We all had some chinese food. It was pretty hot when we played outside but it sprinkled on us which was kind of fun too.

A roadrunner came up to us when we got outside to the drill field
and gave the kids cupcakes. They were happy!

Friday night we went to the country club for a shrimp boil and to let the kids swim. But a storm came through so we ended up on the porch just hanging out before we went home that night. It was a low key relaxing night.

On Saturday, Kenny played in a golf tournament in the morning and then we had a sitter come so he and I could go on a date. While I got ready he took the kids to Dairy Queen for ice cream cones.
So our date plan was to go to an early dinner and then go to a movie together but funnily enough I happened to ask about Widespread Panic playing in Birmingham that night and we started talking and joking and Kenny asked if I wanted to go. Which I did not but I told him if he wanted to go to go! So he texted Jay and Jay was in and in a big whirlwind we were getting our check for dinner and ran home so Kenny could change. Jay picked him up a few minutes later and they were off to see Panic play at some festival in Birmingham! They stayed at a friends house and were back Sunday morning to play in the second day of the golf tournament! They had the best time and made some fun memories!
Kenny was so happy to see his pal JB!
