Favorite Things Friday {8.3.18}

1. This has been the summer of Fortnite in our house. Both Mason and Maia are addicted. They spend a lot of time playing together on separate TVs and Xbox’s. Sometimes they cheer each other on…and sometimes they try to strangle each other in the kitchen. Even Tyler has enjoyed some marathons with his friends. But Maia has been the worst. On more than one occasion I have found her sleeping on the couch in the bonus room with headset still on and game controller in hand. She’s also fallen asleep multiple times in the car when we’ve had morning appointments because she was up all night playing. I warned her that I would be posting all these pictures if it continued to happen. Mom doesn’t go back on her threats, y’all. Boom. 

2. Zoey went up my parents house for a mini Nana Camp last week with my nephew, Jax. My mom is a brave soul. But they all had a blast. They did so many fun activities and had such a good time! She stayed 4 days and it was the perfect mini vacation for her. My mom baked cookies with her, took her shopping, went to the gem mine, had picnics, let her pick out things from the gift shop…basically this is not the same woman who raised me, y’all. 

3. While Zoey was gone we decided to take Mason and Maia to Carowinds with a couple of friends so they could ride the roller coasters. Zoey doesn’t like to ride anything outside of Camp Snoopy so the big kids kind of get the shaft when we go as a whole family. This time we let them ride anything they wanted and it was so much fun! Then we had a sleepover at our house. The four of them decided to watch the newest Amityville movie and scared each other silly. We found them the next morning all sleeping huddled up together in the bonus room with the dogs. Ha!

 

4. My parents brought Zoey and Jax back home on Sunday and we planned a big family cookout. Matt’s parents were able to come and my sister came too. It was really fun. They all got to see some of the new updates we’ve done to the house and we celebrated my birthday and our 22nd anniversary at the same time. It was just a fun family day- nice and relaxing before the craziness of the school year starts.

5. Speaking of the craziness of school starting- it’s already started to get nuts here. Varsity football started this week for Tyler and their first scrimmage is next Friday already. Cross country starts next week for Maia. We had the first senior meeting and college planning night this week. I cannot believe summer break is almost over! It went way too fast!
