Oh man, this week (and maybe next) will go down as some of the best of the summer. And summer hasn’t even really started yet!!!
I love surprising our kids with special things. Partly because it heads off the “is it time yet? how many more days? is it here yet?” that happens when kids know something is coming. Partly just because it is so fun to see their faces when we spring a fun event on them out of nowhere. This past week we got to do two biggies and have another coming up this week. Too. Much. Fun.
Ryan and Silas don’t get near enough time together so I got them tickets to see Wild Kratts live. Silas loves the show and I love him loving it because he always comes to me with fascinating animal facts. We went to the zoo last week and he told me something about nearly every animal. He had no idea he was going to get to go to the show and was so excited to see his two heros in the flesh.
Friday was Hannah’s birthday. Although we went out for ice cream that night we didn’t really do much to celebrate. That is because the real celebration was going to be on Saturday but she didn’t know it. After finishing off the soccer season she came home and we shared the news I have been keeping secret since October (and almost spilled the beans more time than I can count).
WE WENT TO SEE TAYLOR SWIFT IN CONCERT!!
I know the cool thing to do here would be to pretend that this present was all about Hannah. But mama loves her some TSwift. And it lived up to the hype. We had so much fun. Going to a concert with a nine year old is the best because you can sing at the top of your lungs, dance like a maniac and she thinks it’s awesome. What a great memory maker for us both. Now I just need to figure out a way to be her official blogger and follow her tour around the country. That’s a thing right?
ps. I have a lot of sponsored posts this week because I have gotten a bit backed up trying to survive the end of the school year. sorry in advance but I think they are some fun ones you will enjoy.
