Especially this time of year with MY family. So lots we did last weekend, and lots to do coming up. My goodness. Well, on Friday I ended up staying home with Emily. She woke up crying and felt hot so we took her temp and it was 101.5. Eek. I took Connor and Taylor to daycare and kept Emily home with me. She was acting fine all morning. She ran two errands with me. We ate lunch. She went down for her nap right away and when she woke up, she was not a happy camper. Took her temp again 102.0. So off to the doctor who diagnosed her with an ear infection. Prescribed antibiotics and off we went.
Bigi came over and spent the night since we were all going to Day Out with Thomas on Saturday so we got the kids ready for bed and left for a couple hours to enjoy some time alone. Went down to the beach and walked the pier and then got some coffee (hot chocolate for me =) ) and walked up and down main street, then headed home. It was a nice distraction.
Saturday woke up, got everyone dressed and fed and were out the door! The kids LOVED Thomas. Well maybe not Emily so much but that was because she still wasn't feeling good. The all got to pick out something at the Thomas gift shop. Connor got the breakdown train and the girls each picked a toothbrush. Hey, I'm not going to argue! We left Thomas and headed to a nearby park we saw and ate lunch. It would have been a nice park except for all the graffiti everywhere. Oh well. We quickly ate and then headed home because Connor and I had to head up to Victorville for Dylan's 6th birthday party.
Got home (all three kids feel asleep on the way home) and then I grabbed a few things and off Connor and I went. It was a bowling party! How fun. I haven't bowled in FOREVER. And it sure showed. LOL! Connor even did better than I did (although in my defense I didn't have the bumpers in the gutters!). After the party we headed over to Melanie's to visit for awhile since we were there. While we were at the bowling alley, Connor found a new friend. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this in the past but he ALWAYS gravitates towards older girls. And this day was no exception. Melanie's sister has a 10 year old daughter Grace who Connor instantly started hanging around and playing with. Even after the party when we went to Melanie's. Too funny. And she didn't mind him at all so that was nice too. =) We ended up leaving a little after 10pm so I didn't get home until after 11pm. LONG DAY!
Sunday we slept in a little (very little) and stayed around the house all day. We did go for a walk to the park and the kids played there for a little over an hour. They loved running, climbing and sliding. And Connor befriended another girl that was at the park. Well, she tried to befriend Taylor and Emily first but they would have nothing to do with her. =D
So that was our weekend. This is going to be a very busy week ahead. We have a Holiday on Wednesday and then Grandma is coming on Thursday. Friday we are going to head to the Aquarium (I hope that's ok if you are reading this LOL!) and then Saturday will be a relaxing day before Sunday which is when we decided to do the kids birthday party. Yes, all three at once. Yikes! At least I get it over and done with right?!? Meanwhile, this week I will be busy getting the stuff together for the birthday party since I have done exactly NOTHING so far. I ordered plates, napkins and goody bags but I have to fill them, order cakes, get some appetizer type food together etc. At least I don't have to clean or set up. But still it will be one hectic week!
I'll share pictures from this weekend soon! Just have to download them from the camera. Hopefully tonight!
