Family Fun Weekend

Family Fun Weekend

We made one weekend into a family fun weekend (sort of impromptu…this wasn’t a planned thing) by doing SUPER fun stuff for 3 days after Remi’s nap.

It started on Friday.  Tyler decided to keep her at home because he was off work and wanted some time with her (he’s a great daddy!) and then in the afternoon, we hit up the Monkey House.

She loves this place. It’s just full of inflatables, and she loves to run and jump. She even made a cute little friend with a 4 year old girl.


She just loves this big green slide, and lucky for her, her Gigi will willingly climb it 100 times with her!


From the Monkey House, she went home with Gigi for the night- so Tyler and I got a date night! We went to dinner at Rolando’s and then we saw Hobbs and Shaw – the new Fast and Furious spin off. It was funny and, of course, Tyler LOVED it.

On Saturday, she came home and we all ate lunch and she napped (for like 3 hours).  While she napped, we cleaned the house like crazy (yay for a clean house). And after nap, we took her to the big movie theater to see The Lion King!

We had attempted Frozen at a smaller not-really-a-movie-theater place in town but to be honest, she was restless and I wasn’t in a good mental place then and so it was anxiety-inducing all around.

This time around, she was a little restless but made it through the whole movie!  She ate LOTS of popcorn and M&Ms, and only took two potty breaks. (Pro tip: This theater has movies before 4 pm that are like $4.38, so it’s a great way to try a movie with a kid and not feel bad if you had to leave early)

The movie was cute, but since it was 90% the same as the original, I’m not really sure why they remade it.


Sunday morning, she had her LAST day in the church nursery! She’s loved her classes there (and we’ve loved watching her enjoy it) but it’s time to move to the tots class. She’s ready. She’s gonna love learning songs and stories and doing more crafts.

They had a little pajama party for the kids, and we had to grab a picture on their cute photo wall.


After lunch and nap, (another long nap…we had to wake her after 2.5 hours!) we went to the water park! Mimi took this fun picture of us.


She had to warm up and figure out she was brave and the slides were fun. But then she had a blast. She went down every slide in the kid’s area, swam the lazy river without a tube, enjoyed the wave pool big waves, and just had a blast.


I’m so thankful we can sneak in family time when we get it! (But thank goodness, Tyler’s schedule is back to “normal” now from the summer crazy).
