This past weekend Garrett and I decided to just SLOW DOWN! We have been so busy on the weekends lately that it has been easy to get wrapped up in entertaining guests, cooking for large crowds, going here, going there, etc, etc that we feel like our kids have gotten the shaft (as far as special attention goes). So we decided to spend the entire weekend doing special activities with them! No house work, no hours playing on the internet (until after they were asleep :)), no extra projects to work on and so on and so on. We all had a blast together! The boys are at such a fun age too! They both have very outgoing personalities and love to dance to loud music, run fast (or in Jett's case, walk fast), play any kind of sport, jump on the beds, play with trains, watch movies, eat popcorn and pizza pockets, and laugh like crazy!!! I love them both so much! They make my life complete!!!
We started off Friday by taking Cruz to his favorite store, Barnes and Noble, to play with their train section and to pick out a new train for his set. Lucky for him (and because I'm a huge sucker!) they were having a buy one, get one half off on all wooden Thomas trains!
Then we picked up Daddy and headed North to PF Changs to have some dinner. We got Cruz to eat all of the rice because we told him that Kung Fu Panda ate rice!!! (Mommy = 1 Cruz = 0) And Jett ate everything that we put in front of his face! :)
Then we went home and played with our new trains. Daddy made a giant track in the living room for all of us to play on!
Saturday morning we woke up and Cruz helped me make breakfast. Then we put on our suits and headed over to the Earlywine pool for the afternoon. Cruz was so excited to go down all the slides and one of his T-ball buddies, Alex, was there so he was in HEAVEN!!!
Jett and I rotated time in the shade with drinks and snacks and time in the shallow end playing with the fountains.
Then we came home, cleaned up and spent the evening in our jammies!
Sunday morning we went to church and lunch. Then on the way home we stopped for a family of geese that were crossing in our neighborhood. They boys thought this was just so awesome!!!???
After some naps, Cruz and Daddy went to the Warren to see Transformers (no we dont have any pics, Thanks G!) While they were gone Jett and I had a small fiesta of our own!
We practiced taking facebook profile pics of ourselves! Cheese!
We practiced all new tricks!
And we ate suckers for dinner! YUMMO! (yes, I do realize that I will not be winning "mother of the year" for this decision but I don't care, we had fun!!!)
I'm just a regular chick trying to be the best mom, wife, friend, aunt, sister, employee and neighbor that I can be! My life is full of excitement right now and I'm trying to slow down and enjoy every single moment of it!!! I've been married to my high school sweetheart for six years and we have been truly blessed with two of the most precious little boys I know! We are so fortunate that God is present in our lives everyday and has provided us with far more than we could have ever imagined!
Thanks for visiting our family's little story book!
