Wednesday.....

Has school only been out for one week? I just wanted you to know that ...in case you were wondering....


The other day we went to our favorite little spot.....for ice cream......





..have you ever had these flying saucers? Apparently the kids "must" have them.....


who knew kids would eat paper................and like it...........




......stop........are they smiling?.....now that... i must say is the best part about the day.............







......yes......those are pink toenails on Fin.......feel free to call him "twinkle toes".......because that's what you get called when you let your sister paint your toenails..........sorry.....




..............and a little game of hopscotch on the path............






....and that's us.


Can you believe it's already Wednesday?

Looks like you are having a great summer with your precious family!I'm a little envious, we are in the process of moving our studio, so I haven't even been out in the sun.

Cute pictures! Personally, I like my man with pink toes:-)

Jingle said...

I LOVE flying saucers! I would say they are more like Styrofoam than paper, though! LOL!

koralee said...

How I love the Summer...those photos are wonderful...great way to start it off with ice cream and toes painted pink....a must for a wee boy with sisters.

Suzanne said...

Now you had to go and do it. I try to stay out of Graham's. Their chocolate covered strawberries are to die for. i guess I'll have to run an errand into Geneva now.

I'll have to keep my eyes out for "flying saucers." I'm always looking for a new treat!
Just look at little Lola's hair!! It's growing quickly. She is such a cutie.

Tracey said...

Cute! But I see it says "regular" flying saucers.. are there also "small" or "large?" lol

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Me cool? No way...Have you wondered why I visit you sometimes 10 times a day. Yes,you are that cool but also my computer likes to throw you under the bus just as soon as I start getting into your story. Dont feel bad cause you are not the only blog my computer does this to. It likes to pick my very favorites. So what do I do? I just try over and over again. Somtimes I get lucky and can read your whole post in just a few trys. Today it took me only two trys! So Im not stalkin' or hatin' or forgettin'...Im just ticked at my computer and give up on leaving comments. ok...can I now have some of that icecream....yum!

Hi Kasey :)

Flying saucers? Never heard of them, but they look good. I wish I was still young enough to play hopscotch, but at my age things jiggle too much LOL

xoxo,

truly blessed said...

see, you ARE a fun Momma! Looks like a fabulous day. :)

Farmgirl Paints said...

I haven't had the flying saucer things. But I'm sure my girls would like them. That looked like a fun day. And yes the days seem like 3 in 1 to me too. Except for this week I started reading Twilight, and shocked as I am I love it.

littlebyrd said...

Cute and fun day! I have never seen those flying saucers before but I love that the tage says "regular" flying saucers. lol! For some reason that makes me laugh :)

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Now that's what summer is all about. I can't wait to take my grand-daughter to our ice cream store when she visit soon. Hi Kasey. I saw the little bit about you in CL magazine this morning. :)

PatQ said...

Mmmmm...Graham's. I just found your blog and I love that you live in my area. I live in Batavia and visit Graham's way more then I like to admit. I love your blog and will have some orders coming your way.

Lisa T. Howard said...

What cutie pies you have there! And I love Mr. Twinkle Toes! LOL! Never heard of flying saucers, but my guy would totally get into them! I must try and track some down! Hope you have a relaxing Hump Day!

Tara said...

I am totally in for a game of hopscotch, just give me a buzz! Cute photos and kids you have there sweet Kasey! enjoy your hump day! :)

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

I've decided I need to head this week to the craft store for some fun things to do. Mine are already complaining they are bored. We went for ice cream yesterday too but unfortunately for my waistline I need to find some calorie free fun to do with them. ;)

Your town looks so charming, just from those few photos. It's in Illinois, right? My boyfriend grew up outside of Chicago, but I've never seen a quaint little place like that anywhere around town! Love it!

Yum! I miss Grahams! Eat some for me next time you go.

Graham's looks delicious! I'm moving to the Fox Valley next month from the East Coast, and I'm trying to get excited about it... I will have to check out Graham's. :)

A perfectly enchanting day. Thank you for sharing those lovely, sweet photos.
