We had a great day today, super busy, but great!
The babies got up super early this morning, but Teagan was happy to lay on my bed next to Finny and watch Sesame Street while we waited for the big kids to stir. Fed the masses and touched base with the hubby who was on his way home and got everyone ready for swim. Ryan got home and got the new grill assembled before we had to leave and then we were out the door. The first stop was at Target to get new swim goggles for the girls since theirs have been missing since the NC trip. I also grabbed an iced coffee for me and iced tea for Ryan. Then we ran to the pool for swim lessons. The three big kids had great lessons and we made sure they were set up for August too. We LOVE the place we do lessons! They are so good with the kids and the groups are super small, Grayson has 1 on 1 lessons and my girls are the only one working with their teacher, it is awesome. I offered the kids different activities for Fall, but they all wanted to keep swimming, so we will be there until basketball starts for Brittan.
Babies were good during swim except Teagan drank almost all of Ry's iced tea :) After swim we went to Subway for lunch and then headed to the farm where we met up with some friends to pick blackberries. The patch just opened yesterday so it was tough finding enough berries, I am sure next week will be a different story, but we still picked over 5 lbs. We also grabbed some fresh corn, eggs and our milk order. It was HOT picking the berries especially with a sweaty Finn sleeping in the sling on my back, but the kids had fun and we now have yummy berries to eat. We then headed to Sonic for some treats to cool down and Gray's friend came home with us. The kids headed off to play and I prepped dinner, colby jack stuffed burgers and some of that corn on the cob from the farm. (Dinner was amazing, loving the new grill!) Gray's friend's sister came over with their mom, they played some more and after they left we ate and got Teag off to bed. Poor baby was so tired after no nap and a busy day that she screamed and cried when I brought her upstairs and took her to get a bath instead of going to bed. She kept running to her room pointing to her crib asking to lay down :( I bathed her quickly, dressed her and read her her book in the rocker and she practically leapt out of my arms into her crib. The big kids roasted marshmallows over the warm coals in the grill and then everyone cleaned up and headed to bed.
My sweet husband is beyond exhausted after working last night and then staying up all day today, but he wanted to be with us today and enjoy the outing and he never complained once about not sleeping and played with the kids, helped lug stuff and helped make the burgers. He was super Dad today for sure.
