Best Intentions

My intent was to do a separate post with all the pics my sister sent me of the things Sophia did over the week when I went back to work and Aunt Robin watched Sophia. They went to NRH2O and Six Flags etc. BUT, I guess I didn't download them to the computer before my phone died and apparently I didn't back up anything to the those pics are gone until I can get my sis to resend them.
But here are some other things Sophia did over the summer.
She spent time the cats.
She crashed after staying up really late.

She went to IHOP.

And she made lots of pallets on the floor. It was hard to get her back to her bed to sleep when we returned to school.

I'll post meet the teacher and first day of school pics soon! So that means by Thanksgiving. LOL!

Sophia's Birthday Party

We had Sophia's 7th birthday party at Build-a-Bear in the Grapevine Mills Mall. Note to self: Never do this was crazy busy and took forever. Plus they had no party room to do cake.
But the girls didn't care.

Russell waited for us in the food court with our cookie cake.


This party was only 2 weeks after my back surgery and it completely wiped me out. I went home and slept for hours.

Summer Vacation

Wow! Summer flew by and so did the beginning of the school year. I can't believe it's already September and I haven't blogged in forever. So to get caught up, I doing one post for our entire summer. I'll do a separate one for her birthday.
Our summer started off with me having back surgery. I was ordered to be on bed rest for 2 weeks and then after that I was still supposed to take it easy. No long trips in the car or by plane. So after I could drive again, we did a few things around the metroplex. Also, I'll do a separate post about what she did with her aunt and cousins because I was there for those.
We went to the Sea Life Aquarium. We had discounted tickets and luckily for us it was totally empty.

This was Sophia's favorite outing of the summer (with me).
We went to Legoland.

We went to a Ranger game with my parents and Aunt Robin. Boy was it a hot day but there was a nice breeze.

We got to pet-sit my sisters hamster Ginger when she went out of town.

The cats enjoyed it too. They never got rough with her. They were more curious than anything.

Sophia was a little aggressive with her though and got bitten a few times (notice the band aids).

We celebrated our mom's birthday.

We celebrated Father's Day.

We celebrated our June birthdays at the pool (Sophia and Jack).

We got hair cuts for back to school.

We got free Chick-fil-A for dressing up like a cow. Boy was it crowded.

 And Sophia learned how to blow bubbles with bubble gum.
Another thing we did was binge watch a show called Psych. If you haven't seen it, it's quite hilarious.
