Hi ya’ll! Remember me? Happy Fri-Yay! My week got away from me and my blogging game has slipped a little. However, in fabulous blogging news, Life As Mama Bear made it’s first double [$$] digits this week! And next week, I will be hosting an AWESOME giveaway on Instagram. Are you following on IG, because I wouldn’t want you to miss it!
While I Was Away…
Last Saturday, we went to the Detroit Zoo with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law and crossed the first thing off my Michigan Summer Bucket List! E had her first carousel ride, we ate coney dogs and cheese fries, saw the amazing new penguin exhibit and just had a good ‘ol time. I was so tired when we got home and was going to “rest” my eyes and fell asleep on the couch for the rest of the night before 9pm! Wild Saturday night!
The Penguin Center was by far my favorite part! There were multiple tunnels you walked through and the penguins were swimming above you! We were lucky and we were in the tunnel when it was lunch time for the penguins! There were also so many other opportunities to get good views of them from both above and below the water.
It has also been hot hot hot here for the first time this year! We’ve been busy a couple nights this week getting our pool open. Hopefully, we’ll be good to go by this Sunday! When we bought our house I was very reluctant because of the pool – it’s been quite the learning process and I still don’t recommend buying houses with pools, unless of course the house is too good to pass up 😉 But I really can’t wait to get in! In the meantime, we’ve been lounging poolside by the kiddie pool 😀
We did take a trip to the Goldfish Swim School to meet my niece and sister-in-law for a swim this week. How cute are these little fish?! We had a fun time and then went out to lunch after. My niece is walking and I can’t believe it! She is only 3 weeks older than E and this time last year, we were anxiously awaiting her arrival! She will be one next weekend! It is amazing how much babies grow in just one year.
I have also been busy planning E’s first birthday party! Mommy gets a whole day to herself on Saturday and I think I am going to spend it drinking wine and crafting. We have her first birthday pictures next weekend and I’ve got some things to do for that too. Can’t believe my baby is almost one!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
