Last week of S-U-M-M-E-R!

 We are beyond sad, but it's the harsh reality. Summer is almost over!! It's so hard to believe! Monday morning, alarms will ring, backpacks will be packed, and schedules will be followed.
But until then, we are doing our best to savor every last drop of what's left of our wonderful summer!
This week, we've tried to fill every minute with FUN, FUN, and more FUN;)
It's our one last hurrah!

Monday, we spent the morning hanging out with friends at...
Sky High!
I had purchased several groupons for the kids months ago, and since then they had been burning a whole in my pocket.  Monday's weather was wet and soggy so it just seemed like the perfect time to have fun inside!
The kids had a BLAST and are already begging to go back!
  After a morning full of jumping fun, we headed over to the mall to enjoy lunch 
and some more play time!

Tuesday, we headed to the $1 movies. 
This was Addy-Kate's very FIRST trip to the theater and she did so well!! As long as she had her bottomless box of popcorn in hand, she was content to sit for hours;)
 After the movies, we stopped by Wendy's to redeem our coupons for FREE frosty's!
On Wednesday, we headed to our library to meet the Bobcats mascot, Rufus!
Rufus was there doing a program to promote reading and literacy among children! He put on an AWESOME show, and at the end of the program each of the kids got to visit the Bobcats bus. The bus was set up just like a library inside and the kids got to pick out their very own book to take home!
 How cool is that!?!?

After the library, the kids asked if they could visit the "little red caboose" which is parked right next door. With no where else to be, and nothing else going on...I said, "sure."
This time next week, we'll be running here, there, and EVERYWHERE!! But for now, I'm happy to stop, savor, and ENJOY these fleeting moments left of summer!

I love how you show how to go do fun things with your kids on a budget- what a great idea to check Groupon for local kid's activities.

We have 1st week of school down & under our belts now ;-) but looking at this makes us long for summer again! Looks like you are enjoying summer to the very last drop! And we realized that we totally didn't make it to SkyHigh this summer! Will have to plan a trip for fall!!
