summer break week #8

**My kids are currently on summer break. Like last year (see 2013's summer break activities here), I am planning to do one, fun activity with them every day. I will be documenting our various projects/fun outings together and sharing them here on Saturday mornings [or evenings- like today!] and possibly more detailed projects within the week. Read more about how this project got started here.

Day 48 (Saturday) we attended the VBS special church service in the morning to commemorate and recap our week at VBS. (We went to VBS all week last week for our daily, fun activities).
Day 49 (Sunday) we went to my parents house for dinner. My dad made sopes. My kids always have a good time at my parents' house.
Day 50 (Monday) I had doctor's appointment that interfered with my plans for the day, but at the end of the day I thought it would be fun to have everybody think of a question that everybody would have to answer after dinner. My question was "What's your perfect outfit?" They were so excited by this question. They gave detailed descriptions of their favorite outfits- some of which they don't even own. One of my daughters even drew a picture of her outfit the next day. 

Day 51 (Tuesday) my mom took them to the library, which they always enjoy.
Day 52 (Wednesday) we celebrated with my brother Joshua on his birthday. We went to Red Robin and had dinner altogether.
Day 53 (Thursday) we went to the park, and my kids rode their scooters.
Day 54 (Friday) my sister in law and brother in law came to visit. After dinner, we headed to Juice It Up for smoothies. That was our frozen treat this week.

**Every Tuesday we go to the library and every Friday we get a frozen treat.
