Life with Bennett {week 43}

Happy Friday and Happy First Day of Summer! Most importantly, Happy National Wear Your Lilly Day! You know we dressed accordingly! ;)


I took all 3 kids up to our neighborhood pool! And the baby pool was open this time, praise the Lord!

Lucas wanted to practice all of his skills he has been learning at Ms. Jocelyn's!

He also had ZERO interest in getting in the big pool. 

Meanwhile, we had to force this girl out of the big pool!

Friday night, Trav and I went out for our anniversary! We usually go to Bentley's on 27, which is where we had our wedding reception. But, when I went to make a reservation, I found out that they have CLOSED the uptown location!!! I was so sad. Thankfully, they will be opening a location in South Park in September, but it won't be the same. No more anniversary dinners at the location of our wedding reception. Tear! 

We had to quickly find another restaurant to eat at, so we went to Eddie V's uptown. Not the same as our beloved Bentley's but it was still pretty good!


We had the most low-key weekend ever. This was the only weekend all month we didn't have a birthday party to attend, and we literally just hung around the house all weekend. It was kinda nice!

Did anyone else try to go to Target on Saturday?! OMG. Their entire system was down (nationwide!!) and the lines to check out were INSANE! I was in there for close to an hour and a half, and in line for probably half of that time!

Every year around our anniversary, Ella asks to look at our wedding album!

It makes me wish we had gotten a videographer too! I wish we had a movie to watch. Don't get me wrong, I love our wedding pictures and those are so awesome...but that's my one regret with our wedding--no videographer! 


Father's Day and our anniversary! As evidenced by our kitchen island:

That book 😂
It popped up on some Facebook ad, and of course Ella was looking over my shoulder and was like "OMG! Peppa Pig!" So I clicked on it, and lo and behold it's a freaking customizable Peppa Pig Father's Day book. I mean...

We celebrated Trav as a dad, and us being married for 7 years by....going to get pedicures! Ha! Ella got up early from her "quiet time," and Trav was watching golf while the boys I was like, why not?! 

Don't worry, we made it back and celebrated our favorite guy for the rest of the day!


Ella had her first day of Vacation Bible School at her friend's church. Look at the fun jewelry she made! ;)

Lucas had another swim lesson. I'll spare you the details, but let me just say he pooped on her sidewalk (yep) and cried for most of the lesson. 

Good news, he felt better that afternoon!

And I'm happy to report potty training is going well! I'll probably jinx it by typing this, but he's had no accidents since this pool situation on Monday! And he even kept his pull-up dry last night, so whoa! 


I finally get a Dino doll for my tutoring!

They are super hard to get because you have to earn 1,000 tokens and then they only give away 100 per when there's like 30,000 teachers that can be challenging! But I finally got one, so yay! Another thing for my kids to fight over!

Lucas also FINALLY earned 10 stars on his behavior chart, so he got to pick out a prize from the dollar store. No one is surprised he chose a monster truck.

Oh, and I sold Ella/Lucas's crib! I might have almost cried putting it on my front porch for pick up. 

Tuesday afternoon, we went on another nature scavenger hunt! Target sells the cutest little bags that I could probably make myself for free....but whatever, they are like 50 cents each and it gives us something fun to do for like 30 minutes. 

Lucas recently discovered what a fire hydrant is and now he is obsessed with pointing them out. 

And Ella actually picked up probably 10 worms on this nature walk! This one was still moving!!! Ah! I don't know how she wasn't grossed out because I definitely was!


We hit up story time at the library!

And we went to check on my parents' new house being built!

For as much as he loves a construction site, this was as close as Lucas would get! 

I don't understand!

We rounded out our week with a trip to the "jumpy place." 

Bennett was a little unsure of the foam pit!

But he did like crawling around on the regular floor!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
