Monday we celebrated Ava's 8th grade graduation. It was s fun day and our little fashionista took ALL day to get ready. Thankfully I was off work so I drive her to get a mani/pedi and then to my friend Rachael's house for hair.

Friday we had our June craft night. This month we made organic body scrubs.
Saturday Ava and I woke up early to participate in a color run. It is our second one and we had the best time! We "ran" with my friend Rachael and her two boys. I say "ran" because it was a 5k. We walked all of it and our group was the second to last group to finish. We were so slow because Rachael's boys are little (2 and 3) and they wanted to walk instead of being in their stroller.
Last Friday and Saturday my friends Rachael, Ashley and I competed in Art in Bloom. It's a flower arranging competition that pairs artwork with flower arrangements. We choose a challenging piece that wasn't my style at all.
Last week was a hectic week for us! I have so many things to post about but sadly not enough time to blog :-( Ava had final exams and Brock had a busy week with his summer job. We were also able to sneak in a few fun things.

Ava and her class went to an amusement/waterpark for their 8th grade trip. She had a fabulous time!
Before the trip Ava's two besties spent the night at our house. Here they are bright and early in the morning ready for the trip.
Ava loves rollercoasters! Ava went with her friend Olivia on her first rollercoaster ride.
They rode rides all day long and had a great time!
She has finals this week and next Monday is her 8th grade graduation. I can't belive she's going to be in high school next fall!
Saturday we left for our girls weekend getaway! We had an amazing time and I am so thankful that I have these fun friends to do adventures with :)
Here we are in the car headed to Saratoga!
We stayed at the Gideon Putman and it was divine. It was a splurge but worth every.single.penny. It was an amazing hotel and I want to go back and bring Graig, Brock and Ava. I think they would absolutely love it! We choose to stay here because it's within walking distance to the Dixie Chicks concert which was great for us!
Here we all are at lunch! There were 20 of us total so lunch was crazy but so fun. Here are a few of us at lunch.
After lunch we headed back to the hotel to get ready for the concert.
Me and my roomies plus Stephanie who came to use a curling iron in our room.
A lot of people came to our room to hang out before the concert. Here we all are before heading out to the concert!
Once we arrived at the concert we took a big group picture of (almost) all of us!
The concert was SO great. We had lawn seats which were so fun. We got to dance and talk and we all had the best time!
The next morning we took a picture in front of the hotel before we headed to breakfast.
We ate a quick breakfast at a bagel shop and then headed home. Of course we stopped for one quick picture before leaving Saratoga.
