saturday morning catch ups.

/1/ We are back from our annual Williamsburg vacation and it was a good one. This year, we decided to finally check out the theme parks (Busch Gardens & Water Country USA) and let me tell you, they did not disappoint. We all had lots of fun. It was super affordable too. Our 2-Park Fun Card was only $77/pp (unlimited visits until September), which is waaaaaaay cheaper than Disney World, but I think just as good. In between the parks, we went to the resort pool and tried two new restaurants. We had lots of downtime as well (back to the hotel to rest in the afternoon). It was truly another fun and relaxing vacation. The only damper was Will. What happened? Where do I even begin. First he had a low grade fever. Then he complained about his throat. And then just when things were starting to look up, he got smacked in the eye by Anna. Sure it all worked out in the end, but we definitely had to change plans around to accommodate him. #travelingwithkids

/2/ While on vacation, Anna lost her first tooth! It was pretty exciting as the tooth had been wiggly for about a mouth. It happened when she was playing with Will on the couch in the hotel...and I am not sure how it fell out, but "it just did", according to her. She was so happy. I think she was the only person left in her kindergarten class who hadn't lost any baby teeth! That night, I planned to do the whole tooth fairy thing even though we were away from home, but she told me that she didn't want the tooth fairy to take her baby tooth. She wants to keep ALL her baby teeth forever. How sentimental. So no tooth fairy for us...works for me.

^^First lost tooth @ 6 years and 3 months! 6/26/2016!^^

I thought I would be sad about her first lost tooth, but I am not! It was super cute to see that gap in her teeth for the rest of our vacation :)

/3/ Just before school ended, the county library went to Anna's school to talk about the summer reading program. She then came home and told me all about it...about how we have to go to the library to pick up a reading log and read 15 books to get a coupon book. So on the last day of school, we went to the library to pick up the reading logs and now, just a little over a week since school ended, we got our coupon books. I am now planning our summer weekends based on the coupons inside -- water parks, mini golf, ice cream, nature centers! Hope we get around to use all the coupons!

/4/ After a whole week away from home, we are spending the 4th of July weekend in town. We already grilled burgers, ate corn & watermelon, and busted out the sprinkler. I hope it stays dry on Monday because for the first time, I think I might want to take the kids to see the fireworks in town.

  2. I was wondering about that eye patch when I saw the photos. I hope Will is feeling all better now.

    Someone is going to find a surprise when all of Anna's baby teeth are in a box! You will need some decorating ideas for it!
