Goings On  

Posted by: Julie in ,

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had great 4th of July.

We had a really fun time at my Dad and Mom's. We had BBQ, Baked Beans, Slaw and Corn on the Cob. For dessert we had apple pie and ice cream. How very American!

After dinner the kids and Gram had a big time playing with the garden hose.

They started out keeping the ball in the air with water but it quickly turned into a free for all!
Even that little 3 year old got in on the act!
After the water fun was done, the kids got a warm bath followed by ice cream!
The children have all officially met their reading goal for the Summer Reading Program.

They each read 45 books or long chapters so they all won all of the prizes. They received:

*Chick-fil-A Icedream coupon

*Pavilion ice skating pass

*Chick-fil-A Kids Meal coupon

*Be Creative paint sheet

*Certificate of Completion

*Toy mini video camera

*Voucher to a Greenville Drive baseball game

Way to go, kiddos!

I can't wait to take the kids ice skating. I took the older 2 a long time ago but they really don't remember going. My 6 yr old has never been. It should be interesting to say the least.

We're really looking forward to the Greenville Drive game, too. Two really nice outings for practically free (mom and dad still have to pay, of course).

One day this week we're going to the FREE movies to see Horton Hears a Who and hopefully Thursday I'm going to take the kids to the Upcountry Museum.

We've never been and they are having an exhibit called "Eyes to the Hills: Travelers Rest to the Dark Corner" . The exhibit interprets life in Northern Greenville County from early settlement through the Great Depression. We may just follow that outing with a free lunch at Chick Fil A and a Free Ice Cream Cone thanks to the coupons they earned with the summer reading program :o)

All in all, it should be a pretty fun week for the Monroe's :-)
