Wild Weekend!

Ahhhhhh! That's how I am feeling right now as I have just curled up on the couch with my lap top and a glass of wine. I am exhausted!! I'm not exactly sure why. I mean we had a pretty busy weekend, but it wasn't THAT crazy. I do have to say that I am PARKED out! We hit a park EVERY day!!
Friday started off with a picnic in the park. The weather has been absolutely fabulous, and we are taking full advantage of it! We grabbed some blankets, picked up some KFC, and headed to the park. Malakai and Leila are so cute to watch play. He automatically goes in to protective mode over her. He makes sure she makes it up the stairs okay, and lets any "big" kid know if they are being too rough around her. I love to watch their brother/sister relationship blossom right before my eyes.

I promised Malakai on Saturday that we would try Tilles Park. However, by the time we got there, it was pouring down rain. It wasn't a cold rain, so I thought what the heck. Some of the best memories I have as a child is playing in the rain. I got the kids out of the car, and that's exactly what we did, ran around in the rain. I wish I had captured the moment with a few pictures, but I wasn't sure how my camera would handle getting soaking wet!! We had a blast, and for that half hour, I truly felt like a kid again. What a great feeling :)

Saturday night I headed to Wapango for a little girl time. I had never been here before, but quickly learned that their Pineapple Cosmo Martinis and Black Bean Spinach Enchiladas were TO DIE FOR!! Good thing I was driving or else I probably would have had WAY too many!! Thanks girls for a fabulous evening!!

As I was walking out the door, I couldn't help but snap a pic of my babies. They were so cute :)

Tonight, we decided to hit the park, yet AGAIN, to take advantage of the weather. I should probably find some new outdoor activities, but it's free, and my kids LOVE it! This time we grabbed their swimsuits so we could take advantage of the splash pad! I actually got a half way decent picture of both the monkeys together!! It only took a million tries!!

Here's to Monday! Blah!


Side note: Just as I thought that no one reads this thing, I was proven wrong! Kristen picked up on my pity party when she read my Funk-y town blog and showed up unexpectedly on my door step Wednesday night to take me to dinner and a movie! How exciting was that?! It is a 3+ hour drive for her and she had to leave at 7am the next morning! I truly am blessed with fabulous friends!! Thanks Kristen! 18 years of friendship and counting :)

Best AND Worst thing since I last blogged: My kids are BOTH going to KC for a week on Friday!! Malakai is a pro at this, however, it will be Leila's first time and I'm a nervous wreck!!

I am SO jealous that you can go to a park right now!! Rylee is 8 months and has never been to a park! Poor thing! Glad you got some girl time and hope you are out of funky town! Cute pics!
