Weekend Wrap-up: Camping, Hiking and Annie!

Hope you had a fabulous weekend! We sure did! Henry has been feeling a bit under the weather. He even took two naps this weekend - very unusual for our little guy!

Saturday: We spent the day at home with the kids. Carl put up his tent in the backyard. That was a BIG hit! They had a ball playing in there, eating a snack and pretending to camp. Carl grilled some pork tenderloin for dinner and Henry thought he was being tortured because he had to eat three green beans! He decided three green beans was a small price to pay for 'smores by lantern light. YUMMY! Carl and I stayed up way too late working on a project for work. It was fun to do something out of the norm together and learn about how others view my amazing husband!

Sunday: Henry seemed okay so went on a hike. Let's use that term, hike, loosely though. Maybe we should call it a walk. It was a beautiful day at Radnor Lake. Evie loves hiking and even dresses the part. Henry prefers riding on his Daddy's shoulders. We went to Krispy Kreme after our hike. Have you tried their new apple fritter? It is good - really good! One of the local high schools put on the show Annie this afternoon. We met two other moms with their kids for a fun afternoon performance. It was LONG - three hours long but outstanding. It was a good reminder that we live in Nashville because high school plays where I come from do not come with a 12 piece orchestra and amazing talent like we saw this afternoon. Even the set design was above what we were expecting. Costumes were beyond phenomenal - they were perfect! Evie and I are big Annie fans. Henry did really well and took one for the team. He liked that there was a real dog playing Sandy and said "Hi Doggy" when she came on stage. Everyone thought that was pretty funny! He fell asleep towards the end on my lap and woke up during the standing ovation. What a delightful way to spend an afternoon with my two favorite kiddos! Evie is going to be so excited in the morning because I found my old Annie soundtrack. Cannot wait to see the movie when it comes out again in December. Cameron Diaz is playing Miss Hannigan. That should be an incredible movie!Everyone was sound asleep by 7 so that is surely a sign of a successful weekend. 

Make it a terrific week!

  1. Oh Annie is my favorite! I introduced Aubrey to the movie and she is already in love! Oh and I can totally relate on the vegetable experiences...nothing is more dramatic than a toddler who has to eat a few bites of greens!
