Children Family Life My Babies Summer Weekend

{Weekend in Review} Chill.Mode

This weekend was the perfect kick off to Summer.

Addison’s last day of school was last Wednesday and Adrian’s was Friday. Come Saturday morning we had a house full of children to include my nephew, as well as my niece and her friend.

By 11a everyone including the Mr. and I was outside playing.




When it was too hot to play outside the older children ventured inside to help my MIL make a cake. I just love this photo, as we know Big Mama doesn’t exist any more and it was such a joy to see them in the kitchen with Grandma.


While everyone was sucking up the air inside and taste testing cake batter I was left outside with a sweet little girl who got a new bike and was dead set on riding and roasting in the afternoon sun.



Hold on Doc….Hold on!!


Once it cooled off  everyone made their way back outside for a little evening breeze. My niece caught this photo of the Mr. and I. You know he makes rare appearances around here.


Later in the evening my bestie Erika stopped by with her family. While watching the playoff game #GoHeat,  we snuck in a few #Usies


Sunday, we ventured to Chuck E. Cheese for a birthday party.



Today/Monday we are planning to stay close to home. We may take a visit to a local park that has a dedicated memorial section for our fallen soldiers. Maybe I’ll try to recreate this photo from last year

Heritage Park

A HUGE thank you to all who have served and are serving. Please be sure to tell Service Men/Women thank you when you see them.

Have a great Memorial Day!!!

Gimme Five with GoGo squeeZ

School must be an extremely tiring place that renders little people famished. The moment my babies step in the place they are in my refrigerator and cupboards looking for something to eat. For this very reason I do my best to keep healthy snacks within reach for them.

GoGo squeeZ is one of the brands that I keep in stock. Not only are they perfect for after school snacks but they are also easy for me to grab and go and head out to the baseball field or wherever else our full schedule may take us.

GoGo squeeZ has added a new flavor to their roster. The children and I are loving the new blend of 5 different fruits in Gimme Five to include apple, mango, strawberry, peach and banana.

in case you didn’t know GoGo squeeZ is gluten free along with a whole host of other wholesome awesomeness.

Once they have gotten their tummies filled they commence with their usual afternoon foolishness. I just love them!!

What wholesome snacks do you feed your child(ren)? Are you a GoGo squeeZ fan? Do you eat your kids snacks? I do. Are you afraid of the looming Summer vacation grocery bill that will leave you without a house or a home? I am.

A Day Out With Thomas

As I mentioned in my Weekend WrapUp post, this weekend the babies and I headed a few hours south of Atlanta to Cordele, GA for a Day Out with Thomas. The drive down wasn’t so bad but after those kids ran me ragged I was struggling trying to get back. They fell asleep before I pulled out of the parking lot good.

We were cutting it close so we had to run to get on the train for our scheduled 1:30 departure. The train was packed to capacity, we finally found our seats and right on time the conductor came over the loud speaker encouraging the children to yell “Push, Thomas, Push” in an effort to get the train rolling. Eventually the yells became deafening enough and we were on our way!!

The scenery was beautiful. We chugged along over Lake Blackshear and before we knew it we were headed back to the station. If there was one negative to be said, the train ride was a little short, but then again in a train car full of children…..

After getting off of the train there was a plethora of FREE activities for the children to participate in. Bounce houses, a playground, funnel cakes, face painting, temporary tattoos, story telling. Just a whole lot of fun activities.

We ate, played and enjoyed ourselves before heading home. Thomas will be in Cordele for another weekend before moving on to his next stop. Please visit a Day Out With Thomas online for additional information regarding ticket prices and locations. This was a wonderful fall activity for the family to enjoy.
