greg and i had a lunch date on friday at blaze. but, i’m not sandra.
8 miles with the girls on saturday. we started at 5:30am and we were all so excited to “sleep in”.
after breakfast, we headed to the y. i did piyo which was great after my run.
on saturday night, we headed down to the orlando city soccer game!
orlando united! remembering the 49.

we had such a fun weekend. how was yours?

we headed to the science center on friday for some rainy day fun.
teamwork makes the dream work.
saturday morning run with the girls. i got in 7 miles to start the day.
i headed out for a girls day with heather and jess. we started with brunch at white wolf cafe. randomly, our next stop was the salt room for some salt therapy.
we ended our girls day out at quantum leap winery for a wine tasting.
our day of fun and tour of orlando continued with a double date night. we had dinner at pig floyd’s, drinks at imperial, and went to science night live: craft beer edition at the science center.
it was such a fun event!
sunday morning park time!
their splash pad date got rained out so we opted to play at the house on a rainy sunday afternoon.
we had a great weekend after a crazy week. we’re excited to start summer camp tomorrow and get into our summer routine.
how was your weekend?
Last weekend, we finally went to the Legoland Water Park! We have been to the park several times, but this time we went to go to the water park itself. We did do a few rides before the water park opened, but the rest of time was spent splashing in the water.
Kenley’s favorite Lego Friend, Emma!
Greg and Crosby posing by Greg’s future car…made out of Legos.
Kenley rode all of the slides that she could, but she wasn’t a fan of the tunnel slide since it was pitch black the whole ride. She spent majority of the time at the Joker Soaker, which had a lot of different slides in that one area.
Greg and I both rode one of the tall water slides. I chose the tunnel slide because it had a less steep incline, but I’ll definitely try the other two next time. I’m not going to lie, they are really tall and I was nervous to go down them, which is completely silly since the height minimum is 48″!
Crosby liked the water slides even though he wasn’t tall enough for some of them, but he really didn’t like water coming straight down on his head so he wouldn’t even go near the slides that had waterfall type features. He really liked playing with the jumbo Legos in the wave pool.
My favorite was the lazy river. I could have stayed there all day. The kids had fun collecting the jumbo Legos and building them on our rafts.
We ended up staying for about two hours before the storms rolled in and we decided to call it a day. We did the lazy river just one more time before we changed into dry clothes, which ended up coming back to bite us since we had to run to the car in the rain and ended up with wet clothes again.
Hopefully we’ll be back to the water park before it closes for the season. If not, definitely again in the spring.
Just like that, August arrived, summer camp came to an end and Camp Gilbo began. The kids were out of school and home for
ten eleven straight days. We did our best to keep busy and overall the week went well…but it was still very exhausting.
On Monday, we started the week of watching the Olympics!
We also went the Orlando Science Center in the afternoon, which worked out well since it turned out to be a rainy day…and also a rainy week.
Aside from many trips to the YMCA, we also hit up several parks in the area. Greg took them to the “yellow and blue” park twice, they went to our normal park twice, and I took them to a new park after we went to Baby Bootcamp on Wednesday. These kids live for parks.
The kids had Meet the Teacher on Thursday so we went out to dinner with some friends afterwards. We are super excited about the kids’ teachers and classes this year. Kenley is excited to be back in the same class with some old friends.
On Sunday, we played at the Grand Floridian with some friends who were in from New York.
We had a busy week and it was hard determining what day it was at any given point.
The kids headed back to school on Monday, but it was short lived. They were home by 11:00am due to no air conditioning at the school, a true state of emergency in Florida. Day one, take two, was a success on Tuesday!
summer camp ended on thursday for the kids, so camp gilbo is underway until school starts back up. greg took the kids to the “yellow and blue park” on friday.
swimming and popsicles!
friday night dinner dates and this is the best picture we could get.
leaving a trail of trains and legos everywhere he goes.
after a trip to the y, we headed out to the park and ran around.
we hit up legoland this morning for our first trip to the water park. it was super fun, i’ll share more pics this week.
color time while we wait for our food.
we had a great weekend and we’re so excited the olympics have started!
camp gilbo continues this week!
how was your weekend?
five miles on friday morning. it was slow and steady.
we headed to the townhouse restaurant on friday after work. the kids were so excited to see charlie and margot who were visiting from canada!
so thankful for a quick dinner with these girls. it’s been way too long.
i was back on campus on saturday morning to work while greg and the kids hit up the y and the park.
after crosby’s much needed haircut, we headed to sea world!
we thought for sure that we would be the only fools who wanted to go to sea world on saturday evening when it was 95 degrees outside. wrong. it was packed. there are apparently a lot of other crazies out there aside from us.
greg and i collapsed on the couch once we got home and watched london has fallen. it was pretty good!
sunday included church and errands. kenley and i did a little back to school shopping at target this afternoon too.
it’s not a weekend without a quick swim and popsicles.
we had a great weekend! our summer weekends are quickly winding down, so we’re making the most of them.
how was your weekend?
after work on friday, we headed to winter park. i popped in to the rifle paper co. sample sale to pick up some goodies.
we tried the coop for dinner for some good southern food.
saturday morning, we met some friends at the park before we headed to the y. it was hot, but fun!
after nap, we made a family trip to lucky’s market! Greg and i had a $2 draft while we shopped. i think i’ve found my new favorite place to shop.
kenley loved having her own cart…until i put cilantro in there and then she didn’t want it anymore…oy.
i pulled myself away from a day of grading to enjoy some pool time with these hams.
our view from dinner at our favorite restaurant.
celebrating eight years of marriage with a trip to target and dinner at hillstone.
a great way to end the weekend.
we had a good weekend mixed with work and play and some toddler attitude thrown in there as well. how as your weekend?
