We had our first Family Fun Day this past Sunday :) After worship, we had some lunch & drove up to Water World, just the four of us & spent the afternoon playing in the water & riding the water rides! It was so much fun! It was overcast & we were afraid we might get rained out, but we didn't-- in fact, I think it kept the crowds down, which was nice. The lines moved quickly & we were able to pack a lot of fun into just a few hours.
And so ended our first Family Fun Day :) I'm already looking forward to the next one! AND to my date night, which will hopefully happen next week...
--TIDBITS from this week--
Me: "Westin-- how's your macaroni & cheese shells?" Westin: "They're good... but they're hot. I need you to cool them off with your blow thing." :)
His new exclamtion for everything: "Ohhh, so THAT'S why we're talkin!" I have no idea what this means, but it makes sense to him.
He has aquired a Southern accent-- I have no idea how or why! He keeps surprising me with things like this: "I can do it BAH MAH sale-f" and "Mommy! Donald fell into the whale!" (the "whale" was a well... I had to start watching the show to figure out what he was talking about!)

(My apologies if you follow me on Instagram & have already heard this story!) I made some cookies the other night & had the second batch sitting out on the counter while the first batch cooked. Tucker kept watching the ones in the oven signing "please" because he wanted to eat one! I kept telling him we had to wait a little while. I turned around to do something else and noticed when I turned back around a minute later that he was on the floor next to one of the chairs (that Westin had pulled up to the counter to help me with the cookies) with a handful of dough. Apparently he climbed up onto the chair & helped himself to the dough. He had a very guilty look on his face and there was a whole uncooked cookie missing from the second batch!
I decided to start making my own flour tortillas. This came to be because I was out of tortillas and didn't want to make a special trip to the grocery store to pick some up. I learned that they're really very easy! And oh-so-very-yummy! I have since been using them quite frequently in our meals :) The boys & I used the leftovers the other day to make our own personal pizzas for lunch! We had so much fun & took them outside to have a backyard picnic!
PS-- All of the pictures from this post were taken with my PHONE! I am constantly amazed at my iphone 4s. And so thankful to be able to carry it around in my back pocket so I can catch all the little "moments" that are gone by the time I grab my "big" camera!
