It’s officially the start of summer! The Catton family is so excited to have some amazing summer adventures! We started off this weekend with a Frappacino stop at Starbucks before we headed to one of my field hockey players’ grad party.
Saturday morning Brian woke up and did a 10 mile run while I stayed home with Princess Lola. When he got back we went to our favorite breakfast spot for some yummy food!
I got buttermilk pancakes and turkey bacon. Then….
We have been dying to take Lola swimming so a friend suggested we take her to the creek near the Willows on Skunk Hollow Trail. She was hesitant at first by then dove right in. There wasn’t much swimming but jumping through the creek was fun!
Afterwards, Brian and I headed to the Philadelphia Outlets and got some shopping done! I was so excited with the steals I got. Some stuff from Gap, Under Armor, J Crew, and Van Heusen! Needless to say I am so happy with my new summer finds!
Then Brian and I drove out to Cherry Hill, New Jersey to have a date night at our favorite restaurant. We also had a 25% off coupon so that was part of the reason we headed out there.
I got my favorite bacon cheese burger with onion rings on top. After we headed into Old City Philadelphia to this awesome ice cream shop that has been seen on the Travel Channel. We went here the day we got engaged.
The Mt Vesuvius! It is vanilla ice cream with homemade brownies chunks, whipped cream and a bit of graham cracker on the top. I love how they mold the ice cream into a volcano.
Monday morning we walked downtown to the Radnor Memorial Day Parade! We were so proud of Lola she was such a good girl and met a bunch of new friends.
Lola wanted to see the antic cars too!
After the parade we bummed around the rest of the day. We just sat around and read our books. I am trying to finish Running: A Love Story by Jen A. Miller. Thankfully I am almost done and it is such an awesome book! I highly recommend it!
Anyway, I am sad to see the long weekend end but looking forward to so many fun summer antics!
Yes, mommy this weekend got me a big tuckered out!
