Monday has a whole new meaning to me now - and honestly, I don't think I mind. I definitely function more efficiently if I'm on a schedule. I spent the weekend running errands and was grateful yesterday when it poured all day. No guilt about staying in & catching up. My DH even took the kids to the movies so I could have some 'alone' time - hes' the best. Can't share much in the craft dept today....so I thought I'd do a little summer fun recap...
When I found out I was going back to work full time, I tried to squeeze in as many 'summer fun' activities as I could with the kids. Here are a few of my fave photos from our adventures...
We headed into the city last week - with the intention of going to the American Museum of Natural History. Unfortunately, there was a train derailment which made our train about 2 hours late. Despite my efforts to take connecting trains to lower Manhattan, we still got in too late to head to the museum. Instead, we headed to Times Square - had some lunch and did a little shopping, just in time for some torrential downpours. Got this picture as it started to drizzle:
The Times Square Toys R' Us has a giant Ferris wheel inside:
M & C were all over the Star Wars department...these are not the droids you're looking for - oh wait, these aren't even droids at all...
and Marilyn loved this giant size Calico Critters display (one of the bunnies is reading a subway map):
The week before, we took our annual road trip to Knoebels in Elysburg, PA. A 3 1/2 hour ride but well worth it. We go early and come home late. Here's we are en route:
Marilyn on the Italian trapeze:
One of my fave photos - waiting on line for the Whipper. (check out that dude's ponytail & the enormous back tatoo on his lady - crazy good people-watching at Knoebels!)
This old opera house is on the way into Elysburg - I always want to stop and take photos of it. It's just a great old building. Love that they have (had) opera in Elysburg, PA!
The week before this we spent a day on the boardwalk in Point Pleasant. I think I spent about $40 earning one of these smurfs. So grateful she actually got one! My kids could play these crane games all day long:
Sadly, Chris was not as successful and was not too happy about it!
I've got about 300 more summer fun photos but I'll spare you - promise I'll be back with some craftiness very soon. Hope you are enjoying these last few weeks of summer vacation!
