happy sunday to you.
i feel really on the ball...getting my weekend post out on sunday.:)
i think it might be a with it kind of week...kind of has to be...my baby is going away.
mama needs to be on her game 24/7.
planning meals and cooking them...plus all the other stuff i do.
i know most of you do the meal thing every day...so i will get my inspiration from you!!:)
on with the weekend...
we had a wonderful friday, and a good friday always counts as part of the weekend around here.
aubrey and i spent friday with some good friends at the university expo.
the girls had so much fun.
the girls got to see many different kinds of insects, bees making honey,
dig for fossils and touch lots of animal bones.
my girlfriend and i joked that their favorite part was the car seat-free bus ride and playing on the big tree while waiting for the bus to pick us up.:)
it was a fun day filled with lots of smiles.
on our way home aubrey and i took all the back roads.
the day was just perfect.
our favorite bumpy bridge ride was extra wonderful today.
friday night riley went to a birthday party.
it was a sleepover but she had decided earlier in the week that she wanted to come home after dinner and the movie were over.
well...we got a call around 9:30 asking if she could stay and sleepover....!
oh goodness...a big mama moment i was totally unprepared for.
i knew this day would come soon enough....just didn't think it would be that day .
she asked so respectfully and confidentially, that we decided to say yes.
then i hung up the phone and cried!!!!
we decided not to tell janey who was waiting up for her because we knew there would be tears.
and there were.
saturday morning she crawled into our bed asking where riley was.
when we broke the news....she cried and cried.
i think it had more to do with not getting to share this first time experience with her big sis.
i think she thought their first sleepover would be together. :( honestly, so did i.
it felt so strange in the morning without riley there to do all the saturday morning stuff with us.
when we caught a glimpse of her walking across the street (at least she was close-by) the girls ran to greet her.
i can't tell you how much i love this picture!
she had a good time.
and i am hearing things about seeing a 3 something on the clock before they went to sleep!
but that explains why she fell asleep on the floor saturday afternoon and doesn't remember being carried to her bed for a 3 hour nap...slept till 9:30 sunday morning and took a 2 hour nap on our bed sunday afternoon.
oh the price we pay to party!!!:)
janey and i dreamed of bathing suit weather and then got ready for party number 2 of the weekend.
the big girls were so excited to visit their old stomping grounds...little gym...and aubrey was as fearless as ever. we went for pizza afterwards and had such a wonderful time.
the big girls slept in till after 9 sunday morning.
dave went for bagels and we enjoyed a quiet morning with this peanut.
she loves her bagels...and sharing daddy's cream cheese.
when these two finally woke up they went straight to their favorite things.
sunday afternoon janey had party number three and got to swim her little heart out.
riley played a groggy-eyed soccer game and we spent the rest of the day chillin' with a blankie and arthur.
and we ended the weekend with...
i thought of you nicolle when i took this sangria shot
dave's exotic scallop and pancetta pizza
i stuck with pepperoni and cheese:)
our weather was so glorious we couldn't have asked for a better spring-teaser weekend.
