Today I’m sharing my Wednesday which was actually documented on August 5th instead of this week.
I noticed that I didn’t seem to take as many photos today. And it was pretty obvious that Harper was hanging out with me while Hudson was downstairs with Jeremy most of the day. I also realized that I didn’t get one photo of Jeremy downstairs working which bums me out a bit. Next time.
One of the first things I do every morning once everyone is up is make the beds. I’ve always been a big bed maker. I like it when my (our) rooms look tidy. Plus it feels so much better to get into a made bed at night for some reason.
Then I make breakfast and coffee. Always coffee.
I recently bought myself a new phone case after having the same one with broken corners for three years. I love Rifle Paper and got this one on clearance for $8.50. I still love looking at it. So pretty.
It didn’t take long before toys were drug out all over the living room. Hudson played with the cars on his mat for about five minutes before asking if he could go downstairs and play Mario. Harper ended up spending about 30-40 minutes playing with it though.
Then she went outside with me to harvest some basil from the garden.
Since it was Hudson’s last week of summer break we decided to take the kids to Pizza Hut for lunch. It’s not our favorite, but the kids like it and they like trying to win stuff out of the claw machine. They didn’t have any luck today though.
Because the claw machine was a bust, we took them across the street to the Dollar Tree to pick out a couple of things. Sometimes that’s all it takes to make their day.
When we got home Hudson asked if he could watch Mario videos on YouTube. I said he could watch one. Harper likes to watch them too. I love this photo. It’s a perfect representation of their relationship. Sure they fight and argue, but mostly they are best friends and love spending time together.
I went out to water the flower pots which I had forgotten to do in the morning.
I feel like I’m always doing laundry or emptying the dishwasher.
After dinner we all went for a long walk around the neighborhood. Hudson wanted to ride his balance bike, so Harper had to bring her baby and stroller along.
Then it was back home for baths and getting ready for bed.
I absolutely love summer and am so glad to be capturing our routine this summer. This is such a special project.
