Recent happenings

We've had a lot going on in the past week or so which I'll recap using pictures taken from my cell.  We finally heard back from the bank regarding the house we have an offer on & they've accepted our bid!  We're still not getting ourselves too worked up because we still have to hear back about the loan & then the appraisal.  If all goes well, we could potentially be moving in mid-September so we're saying lots of prayers & hoping it all works out!  

My Wednesday date with Cameron started with a very, very rainy morning!  We braved the elements & headed out to the theater for their free summer movies & watched the Chipmunks, Chipwrecked.  I love me a free outing!

And I love me some Cameron.  And pizza too, of course!

I finally got some long overdue kicks since I'm on my feet a lot of the day & my back is always killing me.  

 Also, since I'm in between gym memberships, I make a point of taking the stairs as much as I can.  Now I'll really be decked out in purple with my purple scrubs, shoes & watch!  I'm like a female Barney.  While we were shopping at the mall, Cam looks at me & says, Mommy, I have to go poo-poo!  After trying to explain that the store doesn't have a restroom but we could leave the store & hit the one across the way, he shouts, But I have to go poo-poo!  And at that point all the customers turned to look at us.  When you have a little one, you have to put shame aside!

When we got home, I set up a little Cam Cave behind the couch in our family room since we got this cool hand-me-down Lightning McQueen TV.  I have to smile every time I see him sitting there like a little old man in his easy chair.

As Cam lounged, I whipped up more batches of food for Reese.  

This girl is an eating machine these days & having three solid meals a day which means I'm needing to make a lot more food.  The recipe I made last week is one of my favorites where I blend cooked oatmeal, cooked egg yolks, cooked fresh spinach, cooked prunes, kidney beans & plain yogurt.  I call them poo-poo pops because of the beans & prunes.  I made these for Cam when he was a baby which you'll see in this post.

Friday Lauren & Tay came for a sleepover & we just hung out & enjoyed some sushi & wine.  Mike was a fine addition to the girl's night since he's always down for some girly talk!

Despite the unbearable heat & humidity, Lauren managed to talk me into Busch Gardens!  Luckily the kids were able to cool off at the splash pad which Reese enjoyed for the very first time!  

And the kids cruised around Publix in their cool hot rod as we did some grocery shopping yesterday.  It managed to be a very low-key yet very full weekend all at the same time.  Hope you all had a great weekend too!
