Dairy Queen Blizzards and Baby Hair Buns

We are on a mission for a summer filled with memories, adventures, and new life experiences. I am shamed to say that my littles have never had the summer experience of a Blizzard from Dairy Queen until this day. 

When we were making our summer bucket list I threw it on there and didn't even give it a second though, because DQ Blizzards equates to summer time right?

I have seen around recently little girl hair buns and my girls are even cuter with them, they have both gotten to the age where they are opinionated about the way their hair is fixed or styled and I'm surprised they let me give them these buns, but I'm glad they did, because they are adorable.

Pretend Restaurant

One of the things on our summer bucket list was to open a pretend restaurant, so that's what we did.

The girls came up with a name, what type of food they wanted, and we made menus and a sign.

We printed out menus and they decorated them with print outs from a quick google search of the foods they choose and some crayons.

We opened a pretend Italian restaurant and even drank out of fancy glasses. The girls took turns being chefs and waitresses and I'm sure this is something we will being doing over and over because it was delicious.

Family Movie Night

My steps to have a family movie night:

buy a bunch of boxed candy and popcorn from the dollar store
look for junk food in the house
have hubby pick up a pizza on his way home
lay out quilts, pillows, and sleeping bags
pray no one spills anything on the carpet
find something good on Netflix

 Voila, childhood memories made.

"Riley, tell me what you're favorite part of the zoo was."

"The Komono Dragons. Wait no, actually, my favorite part was Gladys."

To write and write well, you just have to start writing. I have been away from this blog for awhile and I'm not sure why, because I have missed it a lot. I need a place in my life to document all the ridiculousness that I experience; like at the grocery when my child asks me in the deli section around a handful of people if I pooped her out or if they had to cut my belly open, or the ridiculousness at my work that I would love to share if I wasn't terrified of being sued over HIPPA because some of the experiences I have one cannot even make them up.

A very wise man, Ernest Hemingway, once said that to overcome writers block, "All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence you know."

I want to be a fabulous mother that fills her children's memories full of fun, smiles, laughter, and a slew of life experiences.

That's the truest sentence I know, and that's what I miss from not blogging the past few months. I of course have been finding ways to make our lives fun and having fun experiences with my family, but don't have one place to look back and read about the memories to remind me and to look at the photos that brings me back to that moment in time.

Tomorrow we plan on going to the zoo. One of my favorite places in our city. I plan to take 500 million pictures and capture the smiles of my girls next to blooming spring flowers and little wee zoo babies and post them here so I never forget and my girls never forget wonder days like that.

Plus somehow these kids have grown up on me and I just need to be paying closer attention to it all.
