More summer, coming your way

Summer Ice Cream

Did you have a nice weekend? We sure did! (Meg obviously did!)

We had a quiet Friday night at home, spent Saturday running errands and hosting family into the wee hours, and checked off some Bellingham Bucket List fun on Sunday. Can you guess what we did from this picture on Instagram?

The kids start swim lessons this week, so our mornings will be busy, but I’m thankful for a pool where all three kids can take lessons at the SAME TIME. Nothing is worse than having three lessons back-to-back, or having a half-hour in between where none of them have lessons, but you don’t have long enough to leave the pool. Been there. Done that.

We’re also thinking about going raspberry picking this week and maybe heading to Hovander to visit the animals (and to stop at Sonic for lunch!). Plus, I promised Everett that we’d go to Boulevard Park to throw rocks in the ocean. Maybe squeeze in a craft (here is my “I think I’m crafty” kid craft/project/ideas Pinterest board), some baking and (eek!) some summer learning?

And, of course, 4th of July is on Friday. Do you have plans? I’m going to try to compile a list of local happenings to post tomorrow afternoon. Stay tuned!

In the meantime…

Last week, on bellingFAM:

What did you do this weekend and what do you have planned this week?

Scenes from our weekend: Edition 1

Scenes from our weekend - Everett's birthday

We celebrated Everett’s 4th birthday. He is very, very, VERY 4.

Scenes from our weekend - St. Patrick's Day Parade

The kids loved the St. Patrick’s Day Parade downtown (more on that later!). Everett has that Fighting Irish pose down, doesn’t he? (We’re not Irish. Even one little bit.)

Scenes from our weekend - Dinner at Dos Padres

More celebrating for Everett’s birthday, with as many cousins and aunties and uncles and grandparents as we could possibly fit at Dos Padres. We love it there.

Scenes from our weekend - Everett's new bat

Ev got a t-ball bat for his birthday and, much to our surprise, the kid has a killer swing.

Scenes from our weekend - Wine at Michael's

I took an entire bottle of wine with me to Micheal’s. I’m assuming that I don’t need to explain why. That place makes me twitch, especially on a Sunday. I even brought cups for sharing. (FYI, that’s the Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rose. You should get a bottle or 10. It’s very good.)

Scenes from our weekend - Wrapping presents in the car

You know you’re a mom when you can wrap a present in the car without skipping a beat. (Black paper available at Spruce, which is one of my absolute favorite Bellingham shops. They’re downtown, on Cornwall.)

What did you do this weekend?
