Friday Favorites

Wow!  What a week!  We have been crazy busy and now it's already Friday.  I'm going to link up again today and post my Friday favorites with Andrea, Erika, and Narci.

Today is the last day of school for my kids and we are excited!  Our local swimming pool won't open for another week or two, so we have time to chill out at home before we start spending our days there.  Once it's open, we spend a lot of time there since it's only open until the middle of August.  Having only 2 months to enjoy a pool... we hit it up as much as possible.

Isn't this sign cute?!  I think instead of hanging it, I would prop it up on my mantle during the summer.
We took the kids up to see Dan's parents last weekend and thought it would be fun to let the kids try and roller skate.  They ended up used roller blades instead as we heard they are easier to learn on.  This was the first time for all of them, and it's always fun to see them try something new.

My sister and her family just got two new kittens and Emma is loving them.  The orange tabby who they named Blaze, is just the cutest.  Emma will pick him up and walk him around and he just falls to sleep practically every time.  She is in love and feels that she needs her own.  I have informed Dan that there is a very good chance that kittens are in his near future!  Haha!  ;)

Gracie and my niece had their last dance of the school year.  
They are now onto 8th grade!  Eeek!  I have one more year before they head to High School!   Maybe one more year will help me feel ready for that, but at this point  I don't see how I'm going to be able to let her.  I was excited to go to High School, but the thought of sending one of my kids into it.  No thank you!  :)

We have finally been getting some of the rain that we've been needing.  Along with it, we had one of the prettiest rainbows I have ever seen, and a double one at that.  We were on our way to drop the girls off at the dance and I didn't have my camera, so I had my sister sticking her head out of the sunroof in my car trying to capture a picture.  
Random fact:  There isn't a single stop light in our whole town.  Actually there isn't in our whole county.  I believe there is one yellow flashing light in the county and that's it!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Yes 100% to that sign. And that rainbow is gorgeous!

  2. love the double rainbow! rollerblading is so fun. I kind of want a pair now as an adult :) Happy Friday!

  3. I grew up in a small town in Idaho that didn't have any stoplights until recently. I love small towns like that!

  4. That's awesome that there are no stoplights! MT looks beautiful where you are. :) And that rainbow is awesome. I hope y'all have a great summer!! Have fun with the kiddos!
