I hope everyone had a great week. Thanks for checking out my weekly series, Week in Review, posted every Friday. Enjoy a recap of how the week went down, and tell me about yours.
1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
Cafe Kacao. One of my oldest friends (She’s not old. We’ve been friends for a long time.) was near-ish OKC recently. So she swung into town and treated me to brunch at Cafe Kacao, a small Latin cuisine restaurant on 23rd St. I didn’t get any pictures because the stupid memory on my stupid phone was full, and I was too hungry to wait. But I had some flank steak eggs Benedict with a side of fresh fruit that I am still thinking about almost a week later. If you are ever in the area this place is worth your time, even if there’s a wait.
2) What post should you check out?
I’ve been sharing a lot of posts from my friend Kristen recently. She’s just been putting out some really good content, including this post about why and how people forget their babies in the car. I know my guts wrench anytime I hear of this happening, but her article sheds some understanding on why it happens and what we can do to prevent it.
3) What’s been going on this week?
I have been trying to take the kiddos on mini summer adventures. We used our Joey Passes to get into Andy Alligator’s Water Park for our first time. I hadn’t taken the kids sooner because I had it in my head that it would be some huge place that would be hard to keep track of the kids at. It wasn’t though. It’s really a perfect family place. It’s not too big to lose people. It’s not too small to get bored. The kids liked the lazy river, which was nice and relaxing for me. This mama is a fan and so are the kids.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
Are you tired of me saying I’m going to see how I feel and play it by ear? We’ve got lots to do but extra rest sounds nice.
5) Did you miss this post?
I Tell People What Gifts to Give my Kids. Have you ever done any requests for your kids’ birthdays? Was it received well? Did people listen?
6) What did my kids create?
A wagon. I thought the garden was a bust this year and haven’t had the energy to tend to it like I need to. After a few rainy days though it was overran with cucumbers! The garden is at the back of our decent sized yard. So the kiddos loaded the cucumbers up in their dump truck to make trips back and forth to the door with our bountiful harvest.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
