Weekend Wrap-up!

Sweetest, silliest little princess in town!

Our Olympic picnic from Friday night.

We had a fabulous weekend. Our best in a long time. It was busy, busy but lots of fun.

Saturday: It was my turn to sleep in which is always nice especially after staying up to watch the Olympics. Evie decided it was pretty cool and made it to the end although she kept saying that she was watching the "puppets." After Henry's nap, we went to the pool for the morning. There were hardly any people there and the water felt great. Evie had a ball going down the slide and watching Carl swim a lap.We came home for nap time and then headed to see our friends, Maura and Tim and their children. Evie and Abby have known each other since they were born so it's so special to see their relationship growing. Evie is such a bossy little thing and enjoyed having lots of new pink toys to play with since they have three beautiful little girls. We had a yummy dinner of kabobs and a family recipe for dessert. Chocolate Smush cake and it was delicious but most things chocolate are worth eating! We were late getting home and the kids went straight to bed. Carl and I were not far behind them.

Sunday: Evie slept until 7:30 and then Henry slept until 8:30. It was Carl's day to sleep in this morning. We decided to go to Costco this morning to pick up some supplies. Evie quickly spotted a costume from the movie Brave so of course we let her get it. She LOVES it and looks so adorable in it. When, we put the wig on her, she asked, "Where did my blonde hair go?" Everyone went down for naps and then we headed to our next door neighbor's house for a pool party. It was really fun catching up with all the neighbors and checking out all the work that has gone into this pool over the last several months. It's definitely an amazing outdoor living space with a kitchen, fireplace, bar and TV not to mention the beautiful salt water pool. Carl and I have decided that maybe having a pool would not be so bad after all. We have never really been interested in a pool because they are so much work but it's a lot easier than it used to be as technology has changed. Carl got the scoop! Evie and Henry enjoyed themselves too especially since there were lots of chocolate chip cookies. We came home for a quick shower and dinner then a little playtime before bed. It was such a great weekend and I am sad that it's over already. We are already looking forward to next weekend with the Williamson County Fair. Evie has spent the entire weekend telling us that she is going to ride "that roundy thing" all by herself. That's a Ferris wheel in case you were not sure.

  1. I never got around to e-mailing you back again, but I needed the several laugh out loud moments that yours provided. So glad to know that so many things are universal! I'm loving Evie in that wig! When she doesn't sleep at nap time, do you give her something in her bed, or does she always go down with books or toys? Our pool was very dirty Saturday night, so I have started pushing the pool idea too.
