Really Fun Weekend Together

Really Fun Weekend Together

It seems like lately we’ve sort of been on the go every weekend (and to be honest, March was BUSY and May will be too!), so a fun weekend at home was just what we needed.

We got an impromptu invite to our friends the Hensons house for dinner.  The girls all played, the adults chatted and then we had a special celebration.  Remi has been sort of hit or miss with sleep, so we were discussing what reward she wanted if she slept all night long without waking or leaving her room- and she was VERY specific.

“A happy cake. For daddy.  With sparkles (sprinkles) and fire.  Singing to daddy Happy Birthday!”

Well, when we got the dinner invite, I told Ashley, “Long story, but we need a cake tonight.  I can pick one up.”  And she said, nope- she would make one! And it was SO good.

We sang to daddy and ate…

This yummy strawberry cake.  We brought candles and sprinkles to make it just what she asked for.

Saturday was a little chilly and it was supposed to rain that afternoon. So we took advantage of the morning without rain and hit the park.  Bless it, She wanted her dolly to swing, too.  I remember bringing my dolls along as a girl. I love that she does it.

We ran into one of my friends from work (and her husband, who Tyler went to school with!) and their girls…and they played for a while. Remi did have a 2-year-old meltdown when Avery got on the swing she wanted, but it was all good.

Momma worked out while Remi and daddy bought a new lawnmower. Then we had lunch…where this CRAZY kid HAD to get on stage and dance.

She’s so fun and brave.

We hit Sam’s for some shopping then came home for nap and playing.  Daddy had to work overtime that evening, and since it was raining, we snuggled up in Momma’s Big Bed to watch Sweet Pea Beauty.

Daddy texted us to go outside and look in the late evening to see the rainbow!  Remi LOVES rainbows!

We tried taking a picture with the rainbow, but it washed out.

Sunday morning, she was playing so sweetly and independently and I was doing some housework after getting ready for church.  UNTIL SHE DID THIS and colored herself blue!  She went all the way up to her knees, her elbows and feet, hands and face.  SO MUCH BLUE.

After church and lunch, she and I left for the afternoon.  We hit the park (much nicer weather on Sunday!).

Then we went to see my dad.  She is so sweet with Grandpa. She was showing him her pocket and her shiny shoes.

And then we stopped for the first snow cones of the year!  She didn’t love them last year, but she happily ate her blue one.  I see many more snowcone dates in our future!

I am so thankful for some downtime without travel or too many plans. It was a fun weekend together.
