Jared and Eli went to the Father and Son’s Campout and Walker left for Disneyland. That left Alayna and I home for a fun Girls’ Weekend together!!!
We started out with Alayna’s Cupcake Club! Her and 3 of her friends rotate homes once a week and the Mom’s teach them about making cupcakes. It’s different each week and the girls have had a lot of fun over the past 3 weeks. Next week will be their last meeting.
It was our turn and I taught the girls how to use fondant. They could hardly stop eating it long enough to put any on the cupcakes…LOL! This was Alayna’s masterpiece! I love the roses! 🙂
After the other girls went home we decided to have dinner at Olive Garden and get a movie from Red Box. It was a low key evening together just chatting and laughing!
The next morning we got up bright and early (since we were left with Jared’s car which the a/c doesn’t work) and the temps were supposed to be up to 100!!
We decided to fuel up by going to Bosa Donuts! MMMM!
We wanted to get some fun crafts to do later so we stopped by the Dollar Store and picked up a few things! 🙂
This is a glitter picture. It was quite complicated and messy. It certainly required adult help…I don’t’ know how they expect children to do this. It was hard!! LOL! It was fun to work on together though and it only took us an hour…maybe two… 😛
Alayna said it was “tradition” to go see the Gilbert Temple when the boys go out of town so we made sure to make a visit!
After the Temple the temp was already starting to get pretty warm so we decided to cool off and head over to the movies and see Rio 2.
The movie was pretty cute and even though we pigged out on Icees and popcorn we were ready for some real food and grabbed lunch at Rubios.
Then we headed home and cooled off in the pool!
I love having a pool now! It was just what we needed after driving in the AZ heat all day!!!
We finished off the night by making chocolate chip cookies and watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. I love spending quality time with my sweet girl! I’m so blessed to have a precious daughter. I love you to pieces Laney!!!! 🙂
