Week #29 {2015}

Sunday. Bedtime with Rylan cracks me up. Here he is adjusting Blues Clues.
"Ok I sleep like this." - Rylan
Then as I was walking out he asked for Snoopy and snuggled up like this:
Monday we went to return books to the library. Dylan had re-read these books over the past 2 weeks... Yes, he had already read those books prior and loved them so much he got them again. {Wish I could read that quickly!}
At the library Ry likes to go to the block room to build me a "backyard". The red and yellow blocks are flowers. =)
These two really do love each other... even though 2 seconds later they were bickering! LOL!
This guy got caught taking Dylan's Lego men apart.
I heard about an old gas station that served "Amazing Mexican food "{especially homemade tamales}, so we went to check it out. It's called The Old Oak.
Payton couldn't believe we were eating at a gas station. 
The street tacos were good,
and the tamales were okay. 
but we will stick with eating at Tito's for our Mexican food fix!
Tuesday. While we were eating at The Old Oak yesterday, Dylan was playing at a friends house. The friends mom had called me because Dylan had stepped on a ninja star while running in the So today {Tuesday} we ended up at the doctors office, to get this cleaned out and a tetanus booster shot. 
He's supposed to compete at a taekwondo tournament on Saturday so the next 4 days are going to be filled with laying on the couch, reading, playing video games and watching tv  to allow his foot as much time to heal as possible. {Yeah, getting a 10 year old boy to do THAT is going to be SO HARD. LOL!}
That evening Payton and Rylan had their first night at VBS at our church.
The theme is "How sweet it is to be loved by Him".
While they were at VBS, I went to my book club group thing-e-ma-jiggy and got to see this beautiful sunset on my way back to pick them up.
Wednesday we had some movie stars in the house.
And remember my post about the Busy Day Cake? Well my MOM had been making a similar recipe for years that called for Bisquick! Funny huh?
Side note: Did you know you can get my blog posts emailed to you? Since I don't really post on a set schedule, you can be sure not to miss out on any riveting, life changing things I might blog about. =) Just enter your email address on the right side bar!
I volunteered at VBS the next 2 nights and had a good time with the 5 year olds. I got to see Rylan while we were passing in the hallways and at worship time. The 3 year old class is A-DOR-ABLE. I wish I could have gotten video. They were so intense on the dance moves and listening to what the leaders were telling them.
I did find this picture of Rylan online though.
Thursday morning Payton lost another tooth!
And Rylan decorated his bedroom door with Wiki Stix. And was obviously pretty proud of himself!
Thursday night was the last night of VBS and there was a family part at the end.
We sang and danced and the kids pastor spoke for a few minutes.
Ry got bored/tired and wanted to leave because someone told us there was ice cream outside.
And they were right!
Friday morning Payton came down the stairs very excited because the tooth fairy visited.
We watched an episode of Good Eats where Alton Brown made some chocolate Dylan jumped up and made a batch himself.
And they were fantastic!
Ry was lining up the video games...again.
Then P and Ry wanted to lay on my back to watch some tv WITH a blanket on...and the heat index is something crazy like 103°.
Saturday we headed out early to the tournament and swung by Dunkin Donuts on the way. I can turn down donuts all day long. I'm not a fan...unless it's a blueberry cake one from DD. Then it's on like Donkey Kong.
Rylan like his donut choice too.
Back at home after the tournament I got some snuggle time with Carmel {and Rylan too}.
And P-Girls and I watched some Gilmore Girls. While there are some not-so-appropriate parts for her to see, I let her watch a little bit {of the good stuff} and she thinks it's the greatest thing ever. She tells me, "Mom, don't you watch Gilmore Girls without me!"
I had taken that picture to send to my sisters who were getting ready for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary party. They kept sending me pictures and videos of everything they were doing to prepare {since I wasn't going to be there} so I was still involved. Then I got to FaceTime with everyone during the party.  So fun!
