I'd say "Happy Monday", but that would be a load of b.s. I don't think I know anybody that actually likes Mondays.

It was a busy few days. On Wednesday night Tyler got home with Griffin and Zero, although Griff went straight to his other grandparent's house. Zero was very happy to be "home". On Thursday I had a doctor's appointment two hours away, and then we went out to dinner with some friends. From there we lost some bucks at the casino.

Friday was hang around the house and pool time with the dogs and with Griffin. The little stinker turned 5 on Wednesday and doesn't need any kind of swimming helpers anymore. He is so great in the water! Absolutely no fear of going under or anything, and he has a whole lot of fun when Grampa Kev is in there with him. While I might not be strong enough to pick him up and throw him, Grampa surely can. Poor Kev always gets a workout when Griffin is around.

Saturday was the big super hero themed 5th birthday party. Griff assigned me to be Wonder Woman, and Tyler had bought me a t-shirt with the symbol on it. It was going to be in the 80's, though, so she made me a tank top on Friday night. Good thing because it was hot out during the party. I did my nails blue with red stars per Griff's request, and I had the bat signal on one nail, which he really thought was cool. The entire mani was so  hideous I didn't even take a picture of it. But it made him smile, and that's really all that mattered.

I did make the mistake of letting Griffin go swimming in the morning. He ate lunch and went back in for a little while. Then while the grownups were getting ready for the party, this happened.
Baylee hasn't shown much interest in her new dog bed, but Griffin finds it super comfy. He slept for over an hour and was late to his own party.

It was a good party with good food and lots of great people. I think everybody went home happy.
I wanted to eat his face. And the cake. I settled for just eating cake.

Unfortunately, it looks like last week was summer. Now it's back to cloudy and much colder. It was in the 50's last night, it's about 70 right now, and the next 10 days don't look much better. 

So much for nice warm pool water. :(

Last week in nail group we were doing blue. I actually managed to wear 2 different blue mani's last week but never found a chance to post either one. So as usual, I'm late.

This is Barielle End of the Rainbow stamped with Essie No Place Like Chrome and my Uber Chic UC 1-02 plate.

I had a hard time getting pics of this one. There was just a ton of glare obscuring the butterfly. I finally gave up trying and just went with this shot, which was the best of the bunch.

This one is just "okay" for me. Almost everything I've done lately is just okay for me. I need to come up with something I'm going to love, dammit!
