InstaFriday

It’s friday- that means I share snippets of my week via instagram and link up with Jeannett. I like Fridays.

.

Last weekend, Old Poway Park had western reenactment days, complete with train robberies, tents, costumes, guns and 100 degree heat. Major props to the dudes who hung out in full boots, jeans, hats and coats in that miserable weather. Isaiah was stoked about the train robbery and the guns.

.

Speaking of heat, our AC finally got fixed on Tuesday but, until that time, you could find us here:

.

Or at a friends house. Because our 95 degree upstairs just wasn’t working out for us in the late afternoon.

.

Or, for a glorious hour, you could find me at Target, in the AC, sipping an iced tea, doing some kid-free shopping.

.

I took Isaiah to get some frozen yogurt and we ran into his favorite babysitters/sunday school teachers, which is not so surprising since I hear they live on froyo :) I love his face here.

.

Sunday was one of my favorite days of the year: our church’s beach baptism. Such a sweet sweet time.

.

I love my people:

.

I love the beach. My kids love it to. We are so blessed to live in San Diego.

.

Hudson did not want to leave the beach. It took him a while to warm up to the beach this summer, but now he cannot get enough.

.

After that amazing day, I got to meet up with two of my oldest and dearest friends for dessert. Erica and her husband are finishing up training to do missions aviation in Papua Nui¬†Guinea, so I don’t have many opportunities to spend time with her. Love you girls!

.

Isaiah LOVES school. He gets sad on saturdays when he realizes that there is no school. He’s even started giving himself homework- making more little books like he does in class. He took him in to show the teacher and then she had him share them with the class and even the principal. He was so cute about it all! Look at that sweet focused face! It’s either that or his tongue hanging out :)

.

Remember Hudson’s first birthday party? A couple of friends and I are working on balloon baby shower for our friend Julie and it is going to be super cute!

.

My mom brought down one of many tubs of photos that I took in Jr. High & high school. I loved taking pictures and loved picking up the photos after they were developed even more. Now, over a decade later, I’m left with all of these pictures that I can’t throw away, but don’t have anything to do with. Definitely a positive of the digital media world now. There is something I miss about the joy of opening up an envelope of physical photos.

.

In the box, along with tiaras, vocal background tapes and charm bracelets, Isaiah found a floppy disk. “Mommy, is this a CD”?

Then I felt old knowing my kids will never know what these are.

.

One of my favorite finds from the box: me & the husband at winter formal. Love that baby face. And the payless platforms I dyed and rhinestoned.

.

I don’t recommend locking yourself and your children out of your house at bedtime when your husband is in Nashville. Just not a fun idea. In case you were wondering if it would be.

.

How’d that happen? We often go play at the grass field by our community pool after dinner to let the kids get some energy out.¬†Our garage has a key code to get into it, so we sometimes just use that instead of taking our keys. Well, last night, after going out and playing with my mom, it decided to not work. One of our neighbors is a locksmith and he tried for two hours to get into our house. No luck. After sitting on the porch with our kids two hours past bedtime, we decided we better find a place to sleep for the night. Praise the Lord, friends of ours from church live in our neighborhood, so we walked over and spent the night there. Jessi even took my mom to the store to get some essentials like diapers and shoes for Isaiah to wear to school (the only thing we had with us was my phone! No purses or money and Isaiah was shoeless & underwearless- ha!). We borrowed a pack n play from another neighbor and another neighbor lent me their stroller today so I could get Isaiah from school and occupy Hudson in the morning. I was seriously so blessed by the generosity of people we hardly know in our neighborhood. I would have been in big trouble.

.

We finally got in, after almost 20 hours. Two hours before our landlord was coming, after 100 tries, I gave the keypad another shot for the heck of it, and it worked on the 3rd try. While Hudson was napping at our friends house. Definitely a good story to tell from now on :)

.

Walking home from school, the boys held hands almost the whole time. I couldn’t help but smile the whole time. I am so thankful for these sweet boys who love each other.

.

Happy weekend!
