Fast Friday Favorites

We have been out for summer break for a week now and we are loving it! I'm a big summer lover and now that my kids are in school, I love summer even more because it means more fun and quality time together. Here are a few things we did for our first week of summer (plus some affiliate links).

It might have been the first week of summer break, but we had a few cold days. For the first day J wanted to be inside most of the day so we played games. She learned how to play THIS game that my uncle illustrated and she thought it was pretty fun.

We celebrated summer with Creamies, even though it was cold enough for coats. 

We went up to the cabin. It's been a long time but it was nice to get up there to enjoy its beauty.

We helped Grandpa with some fencing. When we got done with this gate, he looked at it satisfied and said: "Just like downtown". I love that he says quirky things like that haha.

My sister and I got guns for Christmas. We have been waiting a long time for these guns so we were excited to take them out. 

We will hopefully be spending more time up at the cabin this summer! Last year we had the fire and didn't get a lot of time to enjoy it. So this year we are hoping to get more time up there.

On our way home, we stopped at the cemetery to put some cabin flowers on Grandma Ann's grave. The girls were pretty excited to see so many names they recognized. I think they will be big family history buffs in no time. V fell asleep and slept in the car by us while we were putting flowers out.

Then we stopped by Grandma and Grandpa Lindsay's graves to put a painted rock. Grandma Lindsay used to always paint rocks with us so that was a good reminder for us. 

We have been on a big pancake kick at our house lately, and if you want the most perfectly round pancakes, you need to use THIS pancake mixer. You can get a whole pancake art kit from the same company HERE.

Thursday's workout was a treadmill ladder run. Working my way up to 4-minute intervals at tempo pace with incline and back down.  I finished with at 2.7 miles and came home to put my legs up on the wall. I'm still sore from Tuesday's workout.

We are off for a girls weekend since Trevon is taking V camping! I hope you all have a fun and relaxing weekend!

Do you have a favorite card or board game? J is really into them lately and we might need some more variety in her age range :)

What are you most excited for this weekend?
