Life with Bennett {week 51}

Only one more of these posts after this one!! AHHH! How is this boy almost one?!
Also, I need to get my act together and post on time!


We went to not one but two consignment sales!

Yep, all 3 kids went with me to both! It actually wasn't too bad. The best part was I could ask both Ella and Lucas if they would wear something, so I wasn't stuck buying clothes they didn't like! And here is what I got:

Also on Friday, Ella and I picked out some special Mommy and Me bracelets! A local mom makes them to help kindergarteners feel comforted when they first go off to school!

So now we have matching bracelets that will hopefully help Ella if she ever gets sad at school :)


We went to the zoo! 

When Travis originally suggested going to the zoo in the middle of August, I thought he was absolutely insane. But, it was actually overcast for most of the time we were there and many of the exhibits were inside (aka, in air conditioning), so it wasn't too hot!

Ella's favorite animal? A bunny rabbit. Haha. Glad we drove all the way to the zoo for that!

Everyone's favorite part was getting ice cream!

"Hey Lucas, what is that animal?"

"An octopus." Close buddy. Close.

Both big kids lost their minds when they got to watch the sea lions swim underwater! They screamed every time the animals swam by!


I took all 3 kids to pick up groceries at 2 stores! I seriously don't know how people with kids used to buy groceries before grocery pick up!

I also realized at, ohhhh 5:30 PM that Ella didn't have decent sneakers for tennis camp the next day! So we made a last minute trip to get some!


Ella started her tennis camp! She loved it!

I took the boys to the library for story time with our friends!

And Ella had another Chinese lesson! She can count to 6 in Chinese now! :)


Another swim lesson for this big guy!

He's basically already swimming laps. 

And there's nothing I love more than kids in matching clothes!


I finally bit the bullet and took Bennett for his first haircut!!! We had to get rid of this mullet:

He did so well! He was a perfect angel for the hairdresser!

Yay! No more mullet! Although he looks like such a big boy now!!!


We wrapped up our week with more swimming lessons!

Ella also got a French braid done by one of the teachers at the Y. 

She was obsessed with and cried when she had to take it out! I really need to learn how to French braid!!

I can't believe Bennett's birthday is this Saturday!!! And Ella goes to Kindergarten on Monday! AHHHH. Pray that I make it through this weekend, haha!
