our weekend.

/1/ hardesty library.  it’s ranked in the top three of childrens’ libraries in the US…and i am just now taking the kids there. :)  our teensy library in our little town always suited us just fine, but this big one is ah-mazing!  can’t wait for story time to start back up in september!  tulsa, you aren’t bad.  not bad at all.

/2/ babytime.  terry and gina are expecting a little boy come september and we could not be happier!  the girls picked out an octopus for him with talking tentacles.  to die for!  i brought these roasted red peppers & blue cheese appetizers.  if you need a super simple, but delicious appetizer for a party…these are for you.

/3/ skins.  you know your kids are fans of food when they eat peach skins like there is no tomorrow.  it did this fiber-lovin-mama proud.

/4/ cobbler.  nothing like a good ole’ summer cobbler with peaches and blueberries to remind me of the south.  i’ve made this recipe twice now and i could still go for another piece.  coastal living, i love you.  will share recipe with y’all as soon as i figure out steven’s new method for “organizing” our photos on the mac.

/5/ lunch.  mexican burritos and chimichangas after church with friends: angie, elianna, and katrina.  welcome to oklahoma, katrina!

/6/ keller.  oh, keller.  i’m afraid we are past the sweet cuddly phase {except when i drop you off at nursery}. gone are the calm mealtimes, simple pleasures, and loving moments with your sisters.  welcome, ornery boy!  you did say/sign “thank you” for the first time this past weekend.  we praised you profusely so you would keep doing it…so far it seems to be working.

/7/ did i say the cuddly phase was gone?!  excuse me.  the olympics have a hold on him for a few seconds and then he’s up and at it again.

/8/ olympic games.  most of our weekend looked like that.  hanging out in bed watching gymnastics, archery, swimming {our personal favorite!}, fencing {not so much}, and volleyball.  we have discovered shiloh’s inner passion for gymnastics and emma claire’s for swimming through this.  keller is still undecided. do they have sumo wrestling?

/9/ hunger games.  it seems only right to be reading the hunger games trilogy during this season.  i finished  book two over the weekend and i’m now working on book three.  and don’t tell me how it ends!


it was a more relaxing weekend than we’ve had in awhile.  we saw an outdoor music night downtown and an indian pow wow event advertised for saturday night via the news.  steven and i thought about going.  then looked at each other and were like, “nah, laying in bed eating ice cream and watching the olympics is just way too fun.” go USA!!!

are you all fans of the olympics? did any of you locals go to the indian pow wow?  it’s on my bucket list of things to do while we’re in the midwest.
