Weekend Wrap-up

It was another busy weekend which has left us more tired than refreshed. That's just life with a 19 month old. Evie woke up bright and early at 6:30 on Saturday. She saves her early mornings for the weekends lately. Carl did a few things in the yard and then we went out for a bit. We had breakfast at Chick fil A and then went to the Franklin Farmer's Market. I LOVE the Farmer's Market. All of the fresh produce, the old men playing in their band, the rows of baked goods and the festive atmosphere. Carl was looking for green peanuts and they were fresh out. He settled for some silver queen corn and we got the peanuts at Publix. Not quite the same but Evie does not know the difference.We went for a long walk and watched a little of the soccer invitational complete with bounce houses and a Cinnabon stand. Soccer is big in Brentwood!

   Evie was not happy about nap time but finally went down. I think she's ready to go down a little later and it has just taken me a bit to get the message. She finally went to sleep and Carl put together the bench in our kitchen. I had a welcome home party for my friend Carol so it was a good excuse to make some guacamole. Evie was still sleeping when I left. It was good to see all the girls and eat some yummy cake. Carol was surprised! We had told her it was a baby shower for another friend of ours so she came with a baby present for Amy.

    Carl and I had tried to get a babysitter. Our babysitter has a boyfriend and as Lindsay said, "that's the kiss of death." Our thoughts exactly. Carl grilled some pork and we watched a little football. I fell asleep on the couch! Typical Saturday night at the nest.

     Evie slept late this morning and we had a chance to read the paper. We headed to church and Evie was the only kid in the nursery. Not sure what the deal is around here but the nurseries never have anyone in it.

   We came home for nap time and then went to the zoo to see the flamingos. Although, the monkeys were defnitnely the star of the show today. They were jumping from limb to limb and making all kinds of noise. Everyone was hanging out at the monkey exhibit which gave us a chance to scout out the flamingoes. Evie loves those funny pink birds. Did you know that flamingos are born gray? They turn pink from eating shrimp. It started raining while we were at the zoo so we cut our trip short. That's the beauty of a membership, rain is not a big deal because we have already gotten more than our moneys worth out of the membership. I have a feeling we will go back soon to see the pretty pink birds. Evie had fun pointing out the airplane and petting the baby goats. 

     We just tried to keep up with Evie the rest of the day! Hope you had a fun weekend.

  1. I have a love/hate relationship with busy weekend. A zoo membership is a great investment, I wish we had one closer. Have a great week.
