Our Three Day Weekend

Monday, July 21, 2014
I've been out of town most weekends visiting my Grannie, but this weekend we stayed home and it was a non-stop three day weekend. I think that was especially good b/c I got a lot of awesome kiddo time in, but also I didn't have time to sit and think about how things were going in East Texas with my Grannie.

Friday (which was my Friday off) we were up early - I had a hair appointment and we decided to get Emma a new shorter cut, too! I was cringing see all that hair on the ground, but she loves it! And now that's it's done I have to admit I really do think it's pretty cute!!
Emma's new haircut
After we (the girls) got our hair cuts we headed to Bouncing Bears and Emma & Aaron played and did tandem flips and ran and jumped and jumped and jumped!

I would like to say they wore themselves out, but honestly they were still ready to go! We grabbed a late lunch with Geddo (my daddy) and they continued to play at Chick-fil-A for another hour or so...I would love to have that kind of energy again!

Afterwards we made it to get Aaron's haircut, too and a few more errands before heading home. Daddy finally took Aaron's trainging wheels off this bike this weekend, too and I have to say he is a pretty quick learner!

Aaron was so proud & kept asking, "Are you so proud of me?" Oh yes, so very proud!! It's also a good workout for daddy! LOL
Saturday was spent splashing around in the water most of the day and I didn't take a thing with me, so I don't have any pictures at all! The first half of the day we were at Splashtown with the neighbors and the second half of the day we grilled & played outside with our other neighbors! We really are blessed to have such great friends living on either side of us!
When I was in Broaddus I had turned off my Sunday morning alarm clock and forgot to turn it back on, so needless to say we slept late on Sunday and didn't make it up in time for church. After we finally all did get up and moving we headed out to Trader's Village. I haven't been there in years and honestly can't remember if Emma had ever been there. I know Aaron hasn't...they immediately found some fun things they wanted! I was on board with Emma's find - I wouldn't mind that swing on my back porch either, and while Aaron's find was so adorably cute, I am not ready to bring a rabbit into the house!!!
Found some stuff they wanted right away...
I did consent to a few other things they found! We've finally started upgrading Aaron's room to a big boy decor and it's a sports theme of course! So JJ Watt, Nolan Ryan, & John Cena have found their way upon his wall - along with a few other finds! Emma found a nice stretched canvas for her room too with the characters from Frozen and her own little John Cena action figure. I didn't know if she was going to keep it in the package or open it at first, but five minutes after being back in the truck she had it open! LOL
But this is what they left with!
"You can't see me!!!"
"You can't see me!!!!"
Daddy loved all the sports memorabilia, too I have to say...I asked a couple times if he was planning to move into Aaron's room, too!

It was a very, very full weekend and I'm so grateful for all the fun! We had a lot of great family time! This week is also going to be a VERY full week at work, so I hope that means that it moves fast!!
