Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  Linking up today as always with Narci, Andrea and Erika =)

Today is my Friday and it's Friday!  My hours are really off today, I came into work at 2am, and I get out at 9.  I stopped to get a coffee on my way in  today and they didn't have any.  Seriously, how does a Dunkin' Donuts not have coffee?!?  And they're open 24 hours a day.  

My first stop at 9am when i'm out of work is the Coffee Shop! =)

We had a really good week, and a lot of time spent with family from out of town.  On Wednesday we had a lobster/clam feed at Brian's uncles house. 

Everything was delish =)  And the kids had a blast playing together in the backyard.
Alyx and her cousin Colson got along amazing!

Someone gave them a bag of Cheetos, but Alyx wouldn't let Colson hold them.  And he was perfectly fine with that.  She would hand him by one.  It was super cute =)

Emma has had an amazing week at Summer Camp.  She is actually upset that today is the last day for it.  They have kept them so busy all day long, and she comes home at the end of the day completely exhausted.  She is also doing online virtual summer school through her school, and she has been doing that in the evenings.  She's definitely been busy.  But i'm proud of how well she is doing =)

The rest of our week has been filled with randomness.  We've spent lots of time with family.  Lots of cookouts.  We had an amazing steak and veggie dinner the other night that Brian cooked for us.

Who knew marinating your mushrooms in Italian dressing was so good?!?  It's going to be a staple on cookout nights from now on =)
