The Last Sunday Sundae of National Ice Cream Month

Happy National Ice Cream Month!

SundaySundae

Today was the last Sunday of National Ice Cream Month, so we just had to venture out for some frozen confection. It’s be a shame if we didn’t.

It was recommended that we visit Zoyo Neighborhood Yogurt. (It is where Spoonz used to be located at on Thomas Road by Target.)

I know this technically isn’t ice cream, but they had Cake Batter froyo! My favorite! I haven’t been able to find it since Yum Yums moved to Wisconsin. And, fresh fruit! Whipped cream is available upon request, but it is not on the topping bars.

Fishing with My Guys

Another day of spending extra time with Navy. I can already tell that this is exactly what his little soul needed.

Tonight, we went fishing. The pond was peaceful. The scenery was amazing. The company was awesome. We really didn’t have much luck, we threw back the one decent bluegill that was in our bucket.

Navy was so happy to be out at the pond that he didn’t want to leave, in spite of the mosquitoes and setting sun. He also got some fishing time in with his cousin, who just happened to show up. It was nice for two guys to be fishing together, and Navy loved catching fish with his cousin.

Home for a ridiculously late dinner. We had not planned on spending that long out at the pond, but Navy had such a great time. I really hope we can get some more fishing in before summer ends and/or the kids go back to school.

Happy Independence Day!

Johnny Tincap & Navy

The last several years, we’ve been very fortunate to have friends at Imagine Real Estate give us tickets to this wonderful celebration. We ventured out for a TinCaps game followed by the City of Fort Wayne fireworks.

Lovely Ladies

It’s always a fun event that the kids really look forward to. They have some of their favorite foods, a splash pad, and fireworks! There’s a baseball game, too, if you like that sort of thing.

The TinCaps won. It ended up being 4-0. Even though it was a pretty sad showing for the Captains, I still love seeing my team win.

I totally skipped the bun for my burger. The bread would have wasted valuable stomach space. I needed the room for wings that’d be served in the 4th inning and apple crisp that’d be served in the 7th. Needless to say, no one went home hungry last night. There was plenty of food, soda, and a cash bar. Continue reading

Sunday Funday at the Pool

Pool Day

It was a stressful start to the day. I couldn’t find my bathing suit bottoms. I had to run to the store to find new ones. Found ones I liked, and they were reshelved while I was in the fitting room trying on shorts.

I will save the annoyance of shopping for women’s clothing from a big box retailer for another post.

We joined up with Lily’s Girl Scout troop at Jury Pool. The kids have gone quite a bit with their day camp program, but I hadn’t been in 20 years. Waaaaay before they renovated.

The kids loved it. Both were ready for bed shortly after we got home. Navy fell asleep on the floor. Lily at least showered and put jammies on.

Happy + Tired = Success

Thankful Thursday: Supportive Family

Thankful Thursday

I needed a picture to post on my LuLaRoe FB page. I needed someone to take a picture because the bathroom mirror technique just looked tacky.

My sweet 6-year-old offered to take my picture so showcase my outfit. We took a couple of shots. He did a great job.

I’m wearing a LuLaRoe Collection for Disney Cassie skirt and a Classic tee.

I am so grateful to have a loving a supportive family. This LuLaRoe thing is really a family business for us.
