summer playin

By Moriah on June 17th, 2013

We signed Drew up for extra reading practice over the summer with one of my teacher friends who tutors on the side. We met at her elementary school for the first session last Friday and it was the perfect set-up for him (use of the library) and for all the other kids – PLAYGROUND!

It has a few vintage pieces that were really fun to photograph. I hadn’t really picked up my camera in weeks, but luckily I had tossed it into my diaper bag that day.

I had promised Drew some play time after he was finished. And he got candy, so clearly reading is fun.

And then took them to exchange meal toys for free ice cream at CFA because no summer outing is complete without a little dose of sugar!



Spray! (Fun Mom Friday)

By Moriah on June 24th, 2011

Monday night we met our Lewin friends for a picnic dinner and fun times at the sprayground. Perfect ending to a hot day.

alright, sparky, here’s the deal

By Moriah on June 11th, 2011

Okay… that was pathetic. (But thanks, G!) Here’s the thing… LinkyTools used to be free, but it’s not now. And while it’s super cheap, I’m not going to pay for the service for FMF if no one is going to participate because that just feels silly. So I need to know if you are interested/plan on participating at any point during the summer. Otherwise it’s just not worth it to me to keep the carnival going. Let me know!



Fun Mom Friday – Birthday play-all-day Edition

By Moriah on June 10th, 2011

Last year we had a big party for Madeline’s 5th birthday. This year the kids had music camp in the morning, she chose Chick-fil-A for lunch, and then to go to the “bouncy place.” Good choice!

Daddy came, ate,

and then chased them around:

Watching our little friend and “helping” her with her paci:

We grilled country-style ribs for dinner and then Andy took the big 3 kids to a friends’ for cupcakes. Apparently they had a rock-star concert that was HILARIOUS. Too bad I didn’t get any photos of that one. But I was zonked and Arianna needed to go to bed.

We did a whirlwind gift-opening session since it was past 10:30 when they got back and the kids had to be up early for camp.

It was a great, FUN-filled birthday! Thanks to the grandmas for sponsoring all the fun!

small style

Four completely random photos from this week, of numbers 2 and 4:

Both happened to be in MJC – my favorite clothes ever – one we’ve had forever (top) and one I traded for (dress).

ode to summer

By Moriah on June 3rd, 2011

Wednesday was a day I never want to re-live. It was just pure awful and I was beyond cranky. I am so frustrated at my lack of energy and what then happens to the state of my house. However, my friend Beth was in town for work and Jenny and I were able to meet her for dinner. (Well, I didn’t actually eat there, still saving those pennies.) It was JUST what I needed. Andy took the kids to church and they went to a craft class (Ari = nursery) while he went to choir practice. A win for all involved.

But yesterday was different. It was the first summer swim day and we spent time with friends in the water. Arianna LOVED jumping off the side to me – the girl has no fear!

And, we got a little loved on by the sun. (Yay!)

(yeah, whoops)

My sisters have gone home for the summer but they left us their gas grill. Hello, culinary heaven.

(BBQ chicken, roasted red potatoes, freshly shucked corn… mmmmm……)

Oh! I’ve had a couple people ask and YES! I am planning on hosting Fun Mom Friday again this summer. We’ll start next week.

Hope you’ll join us!!!



Fun Mom Friday, The Last (for now)

By Moriah on September 3rd, 2010

Wow our house is really clean. I’m going to pretend-sell my house every week from now on! The crazy part was we replaced the rug in our living room about 30 minutes before it showed – which meant I frantically scrubbed the floor underneath, my mom and I had to lift two heavy sofas and move things around to get the new one placed just so… I’m sure we were very entertaining to watch.

And then I ran out to get Andy his work shoes and my van was dead. That is so not funny. (It’s acting fine today, oddly enough.)

I think I’m going to put Fun Mom Friday on hold for at least a couple of weeks while school is starting for us. I’m sure we’ll be doing fun things but I may not have time to keep up with good photos of it every week. I was thinking it might be a summertime thing. We’ll see.

But, for those of you who already planned out your post this week, I’m going to put up a linky anyway because I really don’t want to leave anyone hanging. I haven’t even pulled out my camera this week so I really have nothing fun to share. And I put it away yesterday while I was cleaning.

Fun Mom Friday!

By Moriah on August 27th, 2010

My kids have had a very fun week, but no thanks to me since I’ve been sick or working on this sale. It’s been fun because Grandmommy is here! They’ve gone shopping, out for ice cream, to the playground, gone on long bike rides and walks, played with the hose, got a new bike “pumper” and other small treats, and today she’s planning on making cookies with them. It’s like vacation!
