My neck of the woods...

Let's see over the past few days around here -we -went to Blue Bell's Taste of Summer:
It's was pretty cool- Blue Bell had a few bounce houses for the kids, some cool cars -etc. to look at, and of course lots of ice cream to eat! Even though we didn't stay long and I tried to stay in the shade I still managed to get a sun burn. We also went to see Cars 2 -it was ok -I think the 1st Cars is better and I was surprised that Cars 2 is rated G since it seems a little violent but, overall it was ok.
And what else has been going on? Well... Cats! There's been a stray hanging around -that I've been trying to get rid of -If you know anyone that wants it let me know:
And my sister would've probably taken the cat but, she just got a new kitten -she even brought it over for a visit:
We all had fun with it well, except my cat does not like all this new cat/kitten business -He's the princess king cat around here
So, that's pretty much what's going on around here and today felt like a summer miracle my son actually sleeping in until 8am -So, I got to sleep in too -And now it's rainy and gloomy -making me a little tired *yawn*
So, how about you? Be sure to join in with the RHOK's -Your neck of the woods !

What's going on in my neck of the woods

Around here of course we're still doing things to pass the summer by -Like this:
Outside water play -and might as well give the dog a bath too -Right?!

We've also been busy with other things -We celebrated my daughter's birthday!:
Officially a teenager now!

We also celebrated Father's day -by taking my dad out to eat after the Bday party -etc. too.

And it seems when we weren't busy with all of that stuff we had Dr's appts and more Dr's appts -My son actually had surgery yesterday to get ear tubes in and adenoids out:
This is after he got the goofy medicine and was a little loopy. Now he's recovering just fine -in fact we've been trying to remind him to take it easy.
So, yep been pretty busy around here - Be sure to join in with the RHOK's Your neck of the woods and let us know how it's going for you!

My neck of the woods -Swimming

So, this past weekend was my husband's work -Summer Picnic - it was pretty fun -I'm always up for some free food and fun ;) There was a swimming pool -etc. But, the swimming didn't end there! One of his coworkers and his kids invited us to another swimming pool after that -so we went swimming some more:
The kids had a blast! -My daughter (and I even) went down the water slide-It was pretty fun! -but, It was our 1st time at that little water park and I didn't know floaties aren't allowed so 1 of the lifeguards came up to me about that (and offered a lifejacket)-Oh well now I know if we go back . I'm sure we'll be swimming again -but, not too soon - still sporting a pretty good sunburn -ouch! (And yes I did apply sunscreen -I guess just not enough) -The kids did not really get sunburned at least though. But, that's what's going on in my neck of the woods -Be sure to join in with the RHOK's -Your neck of the woods and lets us know about yours.

My neck of the woods -Getting summer started

So, the kids have been out of school for less than a week around here and we're getting our summer started! ...
We went to Cherry Berry for the 1st time the other day (it was pretty good) and saw Kung Fu Panda 2. I can't say everyday has been super fun filled -We've been relaxing at home some and out and about for Dr's appt's -etc. But, the summer has begun and that's what's going on in my neck of the woods. Be sure to join in with the RHOK and share-What's going on in your neck of the woods?!
