We had a great last week here in Phoenix. I spent a lot of it prepping for our upcoming trip to Utah. But it is also our last week (besides the week we'll be in Utah) before school starts so I wanted to be sure to have a lot of fun and soak up our time with Kate!
Tim had to work Sunday so after church we had a family movie night and watched Zootopia! The girls love it especially Kate. She loves Judy Hops and drew that cute picture of a carrot for Judy (see above). Kate also came up with and executed this awesome Captain America shield.
After Kate's constant asking I finally gave in and we made plans to have their lemonade stand on Monday! I had been hesitant only because it is so hot. But Kate really wanted to do it before school started. It was a little tricky to figure out when to do it. Our gated community is dead during the day. The only time we thought people would actually be driving by would be when everyone is coming home from work...but the problem is that's also the hottest time of day. Oh boy! Not that the girls needed tons of customers but I thought it would be pretty sad if they didn't get a single buyer so we set up in front of the pool so when people came right through the gates they would stop by.
Sunday night Millie complained that her tummy was hurting. I thought it was just another reason for her to get out of her bed so I let her lay in my bed while I finished feeding Henry before he went to bed. Poor girl ended up puking a bunch right in our bed but luckily Henry had finished eating and I was able to lay him down on the bed, he stayed asleep, Kate had already fallen asleep and I was able to take care of Millie and get her back in bed, then go back and swaddle Henry and put him in bed then begin the fun clean up of all the bedding. Dang Tim was at the hospital for it all.
I went to bed worried that we would have to reschedule the lemonade stand but Millie woke up totally fine so after a super fun trip to the laundromat the girls set up shop and had a blast selling drinks and treats! It was so fun! They ended up making $21 total and right away already knew what they wanted to buy with their money (Kate-a princess palace playset, Millie- a Figaro stuffed animal).
Henry grew up overnight this week! It seriously is breaking my heart. I came out of the kitchen to find this...
Henry learned to roll over from back to tummy on Monday July 25, 2016 and by Tuesday he'd figured out how to roll back from his tummy onto his back! This week he also realized he could reach the toys in his bouncer and is talking that much more and also drooling like crazy! A little tooth is soon going to be on its way!
|Some of our best friends invited us over to dinner one night to help me not go crazy! We love Lola and her family!|
|Millie wanted in on the action too!|

|Millie loves when Henry pulls on her nightgown!|
This month has been a tough one for our family! Tim was working in the PICU and his hours have been really long! We used his day off Wednesday to take the girls to Peter Piper Pizza! It's a favorite of theirs. Kate loves the dessert pizza. She calls it "treat" pizza. And both girls love getting a few tokens to play some games! Tim also took Kate on a daddy daughter date to the American Girl Doll Store!
|Walked upstairs to find this little impromptu sing along happening!|
|Look at this big guy!|
|Millie (and Kate too) love hanging out by Hen as he does his "tricks" as the girls call it!|
Thursday we headed to tot town for a good time and Friday we had friends over to swim! Tim finished his PICU rotation midweek and started a new, less demanding rotation (Thank goodness) and we found out he had the weekend off so we decided to leave earlier than expected and hit the road Friday afternoon when Tim got off. Utah here we come!
