Weekend Wrap-Up

We've been having a lot of "best" weekends lately.  This past one was no exception.  The weather fantastic and we really enjoyed being outside! 

Thursday

Since I don't work on Fridays, my weekends always start on Thursday evenings.  You will never hear me complain about this.  :)  This particular Thursday evening started just like most evenings do...with Katie Wynn pulling my cookbooks off the shelf.  I really can't count how many times I've picked these up.

Dinner that night was spaghetti.  This was Katie Wynn's first time to have it.  I stripped her down, put some on her tray, and really prepared myself for the huge mess she was about to make.  What really happened, though, is that she didn't want to touch it at all.  Nope.  No messy hands for my girl.  Instead, she insisted that her daddy feed it to her with a fork.  And she did not understand how it could be "all gone" at the end of dinner.

Friday

Mid-morning on Friday, I put Katie bug into her crib for a nap.  I listened while she played awhile before going silent.  When I went in to check on her and make sure she was asleep, this is how I found her.  At least I think she's in there somewhere.  

We had big plans for a zoo trip that day.  My mom had both Bren and Parker (both age 5) with her so we figured it would be a good outing for everyone.  We had SUCH a good time!  Those two five-year-olds are a hoot to listen to when they're just talking to each other.  Excuse the tons of pictures I took of them - these are mostly for their parents to see!

 We had water ice for a treat.  Can you tell what color Bren's was??

They begged to get in the fountains at the end of our visit, so we finally gave in and told them they could get their FEET wet.  Don't you know they were completely soaked by the time we left?!  Katie Wynn was not feeling it...I wonder if the loud fountain reminded her of the loud ocean??  After such a fun afternoon, she crashed hard on the car ride home!

Saturday

I think I mentioned in my last post that, in addition to pulling cookbooks off my shelf, KW is also a big fan of emptying my bathroom cabinets.  Every morning, while I'm trying to get ready, she helps herself to whatever's in my drawers and throws them out everywhere.  This past Saturday it was the leftover nursing pads from back when she was first born.

The Fighting Irish had an early afternoon game on Saturday so I dressed Katie Wynn in her Notre Dame gear.  She spent some time that morning playing in her chair and getting ready to yell "Go Irish!"

Since the weather was SO incredibly nice outside, we loaded up and went to the Farmer's Market.  I know most people at the market are there to buy fresh vegetables and other food, but my favorite part is getting to pet the puppies!  We really wanted to take this long-haired dachshund mix home with us.

After the ND game (and a sad loss), we had to switch to Razorback gear so we could call the Hogs!  Sadly, they weren't able to pull out the W either.

After dinner, Katie Wynn entertained herself with her cars.  Crashing cars isn't just for boys, you know.

Sunday

Sunday was pretty uneventful.  It started with a skeleton in my closet and ended with crazy hair in the bathtub!
