Five for Friday 7/11


Wow! I feel like the weeks are starting to fly by, and I don't want that! On the flip side, we've been making the most of our summer and have done quite a lot this week.


We had a very fun 4th, beginning the day with a little trip up to a nearby train town for their quirky walking parade. We went last year and had a blast, but it wasn't quite as good this year. Still, Keagan was thrilled to see 5 trains pass through!

Later we went swimming, and someone's becoming fearless around the water. Uh oh!


Last Saturday, we made a trip down to Williamsburg. Keagan was thrilled to see the horses. Steven and I remembered why locals hate summertime down there. TOURISTS. EVERYWHERE. Traffic was terrible, and it was so busy. Still, Colonial Williamsburg was nice to walk around once we got there.


During the weekdays, we've been filling up our time with play dates. I'm loving being able to get together with some of the moms from our new church and start to build relationships. And Keagan is loving having other kids to play with during the week.


This week is all about the deals! Tuesday was IHOP's 56th anniversary, so we met up with a group of about 24 others from our church (including kids) and all got short stacks for $.56!

But today is the deal I've been waiting for...Cow Appreciation Day!!

Keagan and I have done this one for the past two years, and of course we're going again today! I think we finally got the trick of the easiest, best cow costume!


And finally, Cassie from Funky in Fourth is celebrating her 100 follower giveaway with some amazing prizes! Her blog is precious, so please go check it out and send her some love!

Okay, time to make some cow costumes! Maybe I'll even share the pictures later!


  1. Can't wait to see pictures of the cow costumes! I have never done it before and would love to try one day. So glad Keagan is having fun on playdates. I am trying to have fun with those too. Ginny Beth loves playing with other kids too!

  2. I love going to Williamsburg. While I do love history, my favorite excuse to go is to go to the outlets... I wish we lived closer... we'd have to get our kids together and play!

  5. I missed IHOP's 56 cents short stack day? How did that happen? Darn it!
    Looks like you're having a great summer. So jealous you went to Williamsburg---that's so neat!
