Weekend Wrap-up!

It's been a whirlwind weekend but it was a fun weekend.

Friday: I took the kids to a birthday party at Monkey Joe's. Of course, I showed up too early and the party was a late one! Carl arrived home from work while we were gone and mowed the grass. Evie was in no hurry to get in the bed since she had napped so she stayed up with us. Carl put Henry to the bed for the first time and they both did great! I love putting my babies to bed but it's so nice to have a break. Evie just chatted away until 10 in her bed and then finally fell asleep in the middle of an important conversation with all her stuffed animals.


Saturday: Both kids slept late and then we headed off to a morning birthday party at Chuckie Cheese. It was our first time taking Evie to Chuckie Cheese. I was pleasantly surprised by how clean and bright it was inside and it will definitely be on my list for a fun place to spend a rainy afternoon. Carl and I picked up some lunch on the way home for us and then we had a little picnic with the kids. Karen came to babysit our kids at 2:30. Evie was so excited that Karen was coming to see her and not just Henry. Unfortunately, that excitement did not last since Evie did not nap and was a complete disaster! Carl and I had a fabulous date. We went to the Ryman and then ducked into a bar to hear some music during a major downpour. Then, we decided to try out Prince's Hot Chicken which is a local favorite. We arrived around 4 and did not even receive our food until after 5. It's a cash only, hole in the wall with people from every walk of life. Let's just say, it was an experience! Hot chicken is too hot for me. We decided to check out the newly renovated Opry Mills mall and then headed home around 8. Both kids were asleep and Karen was happy to see us walk in the door.We highly recommend afternoon dates because the babysitter does all the work and then you can arrive home to hang out while the kids are sleeping.

Sunday: We were so happy to see our kiddos. This was the longest that I had been away from Henry and I missed him so much. We headed off to early church and then picked up some breakfast before heading back to the mall. Carl's jeans fell apart right when he tried them on at home. We came home to "slippy slide" and then Henry took a nap. Evie rested for a bit and then watched baseball with her Daddy. Courtney and Christian came over with their boys for a little bit which is always a real treat. We love spending time with them and Evie told me that was the favorite part of her weekend.

What a weekend! We packed it in and had a ball. Now, it's time to catch up on some sleep. Hope your week gets off to a terrific start!
