"employee" summer picnic :)

after making 8 trips to woodbury in two weeks for appointments going out for lunch once paid off! :)
my sister tina & i went to chipotle one day and dropped our business cards in the drawing for a free lunch. guess who won?? this time i did!! :)
i say "this time" because tina won lunch for 10 back in december and we just happened to be out shopping with my mom for her birthday and we were going to take her out for lunch anyway, so that was a nice little bonus! {that time we had nicci & kaylee jo with us though!} tina called our lunch her "employee" christmas party! we has so much fun at lunch that day. :)
last week i was super excited when i got the call that i had won lunch for 5 at the stillwater chipotle. i called my mom and sisters, tina & amanda, and invited them to my "employee" summer picnic. :) even greg was able to join us since he works in the area.
we had a nice lunch together! {we missed nicci & kaylee jo though!}
after lunch we went to target & cub. since we went for lunch, i might as well get the grocery shopping done for the week! :)
the boys spotted the weinermobile from target, so once we got to cub we had to get a picture! :)

what a fun day.

on a side note...
after i checked out at cub, i was waiting with the boys by a bench, for my mom to finish paying & bagging her groceries, when this cute little old lady came up to me holding a melon and asked me if i bought a melon. i was confused thinking- did i leave one when i was bagging my groceries, did i have one on the bottom of my cart & forgot to pay for it??????

after a second i said no i didn't buy a melon.

so she asked me if i wanted one. she said they were 2 for $3 and she wasn't going to pay full price and only get one so she bought two, but could only eat one, so do you want it??

still confused i said sure, she handed over the melon, i said thank you SO much, put it in my cart and she was gone.

so thank you again cute little old lady at cub, i appreciate your generosity!

have a good day!!

{project} work & father's day :)

we have been spending lots of family time working together on a {project}, here are the boys on Memorial Day Weekend:

even the on the last day of school we went shopping for {project} materials.
{can you see jabin in the van??}

at IKEA poor jabin was going in the bathroom while a man was on his way out and jabin got smashed in the face by the heavy door. :(last weekend we worked on the {project} some more. we had to go to menards twice in one day and had a pizza picnic as we took a quick break for supper at 9PM! it was getting late and evan decided he couldn't stay up any longer and curled up on the futon & fell asleep. jabin stayed up until midnight. greg & I wanted to go to bed at 11:45, but jabin wanted to stay up 'til MIDNIGHT, so we sat in the kitchen and waited for all three clocks to change to 12:00. :) then went to bed.
Father's Day wasn't any different. we spent the morning working on the {project}, i was clear coating doors, evan was sawing up styrofoam and jabin & greg put shelves together.

in the afternoon we went to a graduation party & menards for more {project} materials.

the {project} we are working on has helped keep us busy{er} these last few weeks. i can't wait to share the rest of the details of the {project} and finished {project} pictures!! :) it will be SO nice when it is done!!
