Fun Weekend Getaway

June 10th, 2014 Melanie Posted in Family, Hailey, Hunter, Rich, Vacation No Comments »

We took a last minute weekend getaway over the weekend.  I like being able to plan ahead and Rich likes to be spontaneous.  Rich asked me on Friday evening if I wanted to go away that weekend and I really didn’t want to, but I knew it would be fun for Hailey and Hunter.  So, I said yes and then rushed around the house getting ready to go.

Our hotel had an indoor water park.  We have been to the Great Wolf Lodge before, so I think we were all kind of expecting it to be like that.  It was much smaller, but still a lot of fun.

There was also an amusement park across the street, which Hailey and Hunter loved!  Since I’m about 7 months pregnant I couldn’t actually go on any of the rides.  But it was still fun to watch Hailey and Hunter have fun.

A mini version that Hunter could ride.  He looks very nervous.

Hunter did not like it!

Hailey was awesome and went on all the little kiddie rides with Hunter.

It was pretty hot out so we decided to head back to our hotel to try out the water park.

Hunter loved the water slides in the toddler area.

Later that evening we got ready for story time- Hunter did not want to wear his pajamas out of our hotel room, so he wore his clothes to story time.

Scooby Doo helped out with the story.

The next day, we headed back to the theme park for more fun:

We played for a little while there.

Afterwards we did a few more rides and then went back to our hotel for more fun in the indoor water park.  It was pretty empty and Haiely and Hunter were able to just do what they wanted without waiting.  They had a very fun weekend and even though all of the walking was really hard on me, I was glad I agreed to be spontaneous!

Hailey and I had a girls day, it was so much fun!!  We started out having lunch at Friendly’s.  Yummy and so nice to just sit and talk to my little miss.  She is growing up so fast.

Livin With Me

After lunch we went and saw Monsters University.  We loved it!

Livin With Me

We finished up our girls day by having our nails done.  It was such a nice day and Hailey made me so happy when she said it was the best day ever :-)   And I agreed- it was a perfect day!!

Livin With Me

Hailey and Hunter love playing the piano.  Hunter also loves wearing his hat and sunglasses all the time.

Rich had a little fun with us while we were working on an art project.

Hailey had to try out the eyes too!

And that was the end of July :-)

Front Steps Renovation

June 28th, 2013 Melanie Posted in House, Rich No Comments »

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you have ever been to our house then you know that the front steps leading up to our front door were a mess. They were very uneven and needed to be redone.  I didn't get before picture, but I took one soon after Rich started the work.

Livin With Me

You can see where he started digging to build the new steps… the old steps have dirt piled on them that he dug out of the ground to build the new steps.  You can kind of see how crooked the old steps were.

Livin With Me

Here are the new steps all beautifully built.  Rich put a wall where the old steps were and filled it in with dirt.  The flowers were waiting to be planted.

Livin With Me

This is up at the top of the stairs, it goes along the front of our house.

Livin With Me

Deciding where to put the flowers.

Livin With Me

I don't have great luck with flowers, they never seem to do very well for me.  Instead of just using the dirt that Rich dug up from where our new steps are, I thought it would be best to use some Miracle-Gro.  Some good products to use are: Shake n’ Feed Moisture Control All Purpose Plant Food and Moisture Control Potting Mix or LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit. We shall see how it goes :-)   If you have your own little fun garden projects, you can check out The Gro Project to start your own story.

Livin With Me

Here are the completed steps with the flowers planted.

Livin With Me

I'm hoping the flowers will do well!  Don't forget to check out Miracle-Gro on Pinterest too, so you can get some gardening ideas!

Family Pictures

June 12th, 2013 Melanie Posted in Family, Hailey, Hunter, Me, Rich, Vacation No Comments »

We took some family pictures while we were at the beach.  I’m convinced that when you see pictures of families on the beach that they can’t really be taken on the beach.  It was so windy, so all of us had hair blowing every which way.  And everyone was either squinting or wearing their sunglasses.  Anyway, I still think we got some good pictures!
