Rainy Day Thursday

Well, all of that rain that was hitting the mid-west finally made its way to our little piece of paradise today. I really do love a nice rainy day, I like to sit out on the lanai with my coffee listen to the rain, Isabelle on the other hand gets stuck in the house all day which can be a bit like caging a wild animal.

Isabelle spent most of the morning playing quietly and then got into some episodes of The Backyardigans while enjoying some popcorn.

Today was Luke's last day of school for the year!! yaaaaaaayyyyy. Since he has spent so much time studying lately, Isabelle had all kinds of playing activities lined out for him. They played ponys, tag, pretending to be back packs, and several other things including a lesson on the sun, moon, and planets..

We hoped the rain would stop long enough to get outside to play a bit...but it didnt so Isabelle had to settle for splashing in puddles on the lanai..

Later in the evening our friend Jodi came by and Isabelle whipped up a quick tea party for us ( I had to beg to be involved..she at first told me I couldnt come because I was a mommy)

Isabelle wanted Jodi to spend the night so she was nice enough to make them a  both a pallet ( once again I was not allowed to sleep on the pallet because I am the mom)

Now, Isabelle is in bed and Luke is out on the town with his friends celebrating the end of the semester and I have the house to myself! I don't even know if this has happed to me before but I am going to enjoy it!!

Mid Week Special

I am so happy that the middle of the week is finally here! Some of my favorite shows are on Wednesday night, tomorrow is Luke's last day of class for the year, and it only gets better ever day after!

Isabelle was kind enough to relax in her bedroom and let me sleep until 9..whoo hoo. She made me repay her by playing Dr. Barbies before I had even made coffee.

Next, Isabelle wanted to paint a picture of a dragon for her daddy. I finally got to enjoy my coffee.

I got into organizing some of the art supplies so that meant Isabelle had to test everything out. So she painted, made daddy a king crown (she always makes things for him), colored and put together a puzzle, and even got some play dough going!

We had some lunch and a little dress up time..

Luke came home after yet another test and we decided to get out of the house for a little while and go on a drive...

So cool...always has to have her shades on like momma

peanut island
McArthur Park
We got home and checked the mail and found a package! Now lately Isabelle has been getting a lot of mail, but this one was for me :)

My mommy sent me this shirt and earrings for mothers day! Thank you mom! Aren't I supposed to be the one buying you something? Love ya!

Tea Party and Pool Time

Isabelle started the day off with big plans for a picnic. She loaded all her dishes and food up into a cooler and spread a nice blanket out for us.

Wow what a spread

Isabelle took this one..those are her baby Joey's legs

After I had my fill of plastic hot dogs and donuts, Isabelle decided she was going to pretend to share her picnic with the Firefighters! She told me that they are always eating unhealthy food and they need healthy food for the Firehouse dogs so they can use them to sniff out people when there is a fire! Man she is smart:) 

I went about my business, doing some chores and having some computer time when I heard Isabelle singing in the living room..

Soon it was time for a REAL lunch..BLT's

Luke came home from another test this afternoon and decided to take a litle break. We let Isabelle decide if she wanted to go to the park or down to the pool. She of course picked the pool so we were off..


She was playing " free the wild fish" with the pool man Gary
Dinner time was fast approaching so we headed back to the house. I threw in one of those new pizzas that come with bread sticks or cool

Isabelle was hanging out and enjoying a banana laffy taffy while waiting..

However, I ended up eating dinner alone because someone was too tired from swimming to make it..

Happy Birthday Baby Bro

So, today is my baby brothers birthday! He is by no means a baby at 22 but he is still my baby bro. I wish I was home celebrating with the family tonight but I cant so I threw myself into house blessing Monday and other random projects..

Luke was gone to school before the sun came up so Iz and I were on our own this morning. Isabelle lazed around watching cartoons and I got in some computer time. Isabelle requested bacon for breakfast so I went ahead and threw in some eggs, hash browns, and toast. After breakfast Iz was off to play. I off into another room when I heard a ruckus...

I came into the living room to find Diego hog tied to the console table with a band aide over his mother. I asked her what he did and she told me he was messing up her room. We then got ready to head to Target (Isabelles favorite place) for some groceries and other essential what nots..

I know a lot of people going gluten free these about some cocoa pebbles!

Got this lamp shade for a lonely lamp for a whopping 4.99!

Isabelle was in quite the mood today so we didnt do much after the Target trip. Dinner, hide and seek, bedtime. We will get funner soon, I promise :)
