Exhausted! AKA - Thank Goodness for Long Weekends!

I think I will be spending a lot of time over this long Labor Day weekend sleeping!!!  The past two weeks have been exhausting.  Last week we were on vacation from work.  We did some day trips with the kids to enjoy the end of the summer before school started andI think I will be spending a lot of time over this long Labor Day weekend sleeping!!!  The past two weeks have been exhausting.  Last week we were on vacation from work.  We did some day trips with the kids to enjoy the end of the summer before school started and we shopped for school supplies and clothes.

The clothes were mostly for Phoebe as the boys uniforms were ordered already, but the school supplies were for everyone, and boy did that ever total up to a hefty sum.  Back to school season must be to Staples, what Christmas holidays are for every other store.  We did also have to buy more stuff for the boys as I didn't know they could wear shorts in the beginning of the year and that they needed an outfit for gym class once a week.  Old Navy was completely out of navy blue shorts, but Target had six pairs in a size 5, which will be perfect.  I always do laundry mid-week as well as weekends, so they only need three days worth.  

But the fun stuff we did as a family was great!  We took them fishing off the coast of Cape May.  It was just a four hour boat trip, which is perfect for their attention level right now.  They also really needed a hair cut in these photos:


We also got the opportunity to see two bald headed eagles that made their home on the New Jersey shore.


Both boys did catch small sharks.  They needed to be put back into the water.


After fishing, we went into town (Cape May) for lunch

Mid week, we took the kids to a baseball game in Philadelphia.  It was the boys first baseball game.  They got to run the bases on the field after the game was over.






It was a fun week, but between the excitement of last week with stuff to do and this week with going to school, I'm exhausted!  I got caught up a little on sleep last night, so now I'm off to get my vegetable garden weeded and cleaned up!  I started this morning with the boys outside with me and it was tough as they kept getting mad at each other.  I'm going to try to leave them inside for some quiet time this afternoon and I'll go out and get the job done!

Sheesh! Relax :)

Hope you got your garden sorted - I know what it's like when the kids get ornery!

Ha! Busy busy busy and packed!!! Hope the boys enjoyed their first baseball game and I'm sure running to the based must have been exciting for them
