After that we went and looked at carpet. Very romantic I know, but it was so much easier doing that without the kids. Then we went out to dinner at the Olive Garden. It is one of our favorites. Then we went back to our house for a little chocolate fondue, a game of Rummikub, and for some unaccounted for time. We had a great time together.
The next day DH had to go to work and I went and got the kids from Grandma and Grandpa's house. Thanks Mom and Dad for watching them so we could have some grown up alone time. We also had a back-to-school party at my house with my family. We had yummy chinese food. We are having leftovers tonight for dinner. I am excited! I am on a total chinese food kick lately.
We also got to have a little manicure/pedicure party with Steph and her girls. Steph brought me the yummiest sandwich ever. Thanks Steph!
All in all, it was a great summer break. I am glad it is over though. The girls were starting to get on each others nerves (and mine!) this last week. It was just time for them to go back. Have fun at school girls!

We finished painting it all last night. PHEW! That was a lot of work. I will have to take some new pictures and post them next week.
M and Dad also got to go to a Daddy Daughter Date Night for Activity Days. They had a nerd night. Dad had fun dressing up for it.
We also went to a ward party, had lunch and a play date with friends, had a primary activity, went to Grandma's house for a crop, and I did an enrichment night. I think last week was the busiest week I have had in a very long time. I was looking forward to this next week being a lot less busy, and then I started my list of all the things that I need to do before school starts. AAAHHHHHH!!! It is going to be another busy week afterall.
10 weeks down, only 1 more to go....oh no!
This week we got to go to a neighborhood party in place of our regular FHE. They had set up a blow up water slide thing that the kids had a great time playing on. We BBQed, and they made homemade icecream. YUM!
We also had some friends over for another Polly Pocket Pool Party.....those Polly's just can't have enough parties you know. I forgot to pull out the camera. It seems like the longer summer goes the less pictures I take. I think I am getting tired!
The girls were starting to get bored of their toys, so we dug around out in the garage and found the Dress-Up tub. They have had so much fun dressing up and dancing around the house.
The girls are still doing their reading to earn their Twillerbee dolls. They are both going through books like crazy! This is M nearing the end of Harry Potter #3.
For our craft day this week we made these little shapes out of "ironing beads" as we call them.
We are getting tons of tomatoes from our garden. We found this little guy out there one day. (Okay, I added the black bean eyes, but that nose really was growning out the side of the tomato...so funny!)
We also got to go to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House with some good friends of ours. I kicked myself as we were driving home because we forgot to take pictures! We had a fun BBQ with them after and had so much fun visiting. We sure miss them and their family.
8 weeks down 3 more to go!
