Random bits of goodness....

I have some random things I've wanted to post about but time has gotten away from me so I am smooshing them all together in one past so I don't leave anything out.

Drea's art exhibit

This was great! My dad made the suggestion that Drea should do something to have everyone over to see the newest artwork she made at her summer art camp. So we decided to host her very own art exhibit. We invited our family over and it really turned out awesome! The girls got into it and made everyone a plate of appetizers that they served before they were walked around through the exhibit so Drea could tell them about each piece. They even turned on fancy jazz music for their guests.
This is a cool panoramic photo I took of my dining room. It captured all of Drea's artwork and turned to be a neat shot.

Drea showing some of her artwork to her guests.

East Fairmont Rockets

Drea started cheerleading for her first time. She is cheering for the Rockets....The same football team I grew up cheering for except back then they were called the IUE Rockets. It feels so weird calling them the East Fairmont Rockets now. 
Drea's first cheerleading practice

Drea and her new friend Jaelyn at football team weigh ins. The girls cheered for the scrimage afterward.

Miniature golfing

One night after cheerleading practice, I decided to treat the girls to mini golfing. It was on a whim... Coal Country golf course caught my eye on the way home and I literally just turned that way off the interstate and surprised the girls. This is outside of my character sometimes and I love it. I love when I can make the girls night by spending some time with them outside of the expected mommy regimen. And it always ends up being some of my favorite moments.
Both of the girls really enjoyed it. On hole number one, Drea got a hole in one!

A day off before kindergarten

I decided to take a day off with Charlotte when Drea started school since Charlotte didn't start for a couple days. I took time off with Drea before she started kindergarten so I thought I would at least enjoy a day with Charlotte. 

We went to CrossFit and then took Theo to the park for a bit.
After my quick doctor's appointment, we went home and snuggled on the couch until time to pick up sissy. Charlotte loves cuddle time! And that was all she requested of me for the day so I was happy to appease her!

He has so much fun crawling through the tube!!

My little monkey 
The girls wanted to do something for Andy for his 40th birthday. Since he was out of town and there has been lots going on, planning a party wasn't going to be possible. So they decided to do something silly. We blew up balloons and filled his bathroom. (The bathroom was the smallest room to fill and the room we could shut off from the dogs without cramping their style! lol!) So we blew up balloons and decorated and closed the door so when he returned from Atlanta and tried to go to the bathroom he would be inundated with a mini-party! lol Here's a pic:
