Last Minute Summer Fun & Giveaways!

Linking up with Andrea, Narci & Erika for...
This past weekend/week was about cramming in some last minute fun before school starts next week.
Mission accomplished!

We kicked off the weekend with haircuts for both of my guys.
This cutie was done before Mic, so he grabbed some big boy magazines and "read" them while he waited ;)

We ran a few more errands and then stopped for some donuts!
This kid got the sprinkled vanilla while I stuck to my FAVORITE - plain cake.

Mic worked outside most of the day while I worked on things inside.
But then it was time for some fun!
X has been asking us all summer to go to the go kart track, and it finally worked out on Saturday night.
While we waited for our pizza, X (and Mic) played his FAVORITE arcade games!


Once we ate it was time to drive!
Shockingly it wasn't busy, so X had the kid go kart track to himself.
Watching this kid is my FAVORITE!
The girl told him to make sure he didn't hit the sides and boy did he listen!
A couple times he even slowed down to a stop to make sure he wouldn't hit anything.

Then we moved onto Mini Golf - MY LEAST FAVORITE activity!
Honestly, I have never had the patience for it.
Even as a kid I just didn't like it.

This kid did really well for his first time and even got a hole in 1!


We then moved onto the playground area and out of nowhere a big kid showed up!
He has never been able to do the monkey bars, and on this night he did it with ease :)


On Sunday, X and I headed to Columbus to meet my dad and step mom for dinner and some swimming.
We woke up the next morning and headed to the Columbus Zoo for a day of fun!
While X seemed to enjoy looking at all the animals, his FAVORITE part was getting his picture taken every time we came across one of these statues!
He even posed himself in a few of them ;)




















We finished our day with dinner at our FAVORITE, Skyline Chili before making the trip back home.


On Tuesday I joined Andrea for Show & Tell  and shared some of my FAVORITE guilty pleasures :)


And that evening we got to meet X's teacher at Kindergarten orientation!
Seeing this kid excited for school to start is my FAVORITE!

And that evening I saw this posted on Instagram and thought I had to share it!


Yesterday, I hopped on my soapbox and wrote about my thoughts on Competition, and I am not talking about sports.
I don't voice my opinions too often, but boy did it feel good :)


Of course I always find some FAVORITES on instagram :)


And just as I was writing this post, I got this picture from our babysitter....
Yesterday was X's last day at her house so they celebrated with ice cream!
I think he has had a fantastic summer with all the fun things they have done :)


We have plans to head to the Blueberry Festival tonight and enjoy some of our FAVORITE treats :)
And then tomorrow we are heading north to swim & camp with my dad and step mom along Lake Erie.
Fingers crossed the weather cooperates for us!
