If you stopped by looking for Tell Us Something Good, I regret to inform you that we will no longer be posting that blog hop. I thought it was a great idea, since focusing on the good in our lives is always a good thing, but unfortunately, it never caught on. I am still doing my best to focus on the good in my life, and there was a whole lot of it this past weekend!
We had no plans for the weekend, which is unusual for us. On Friday I casually mentioned to Andrea that we should meet up at the splash pad on Saturday, but no firm plans were made. We slept in a little on Saturday and shortly after we got up, we decided that we would head to the park to play in the splash pad and have a picnic lunch. I sent Andrea and my other friend Kristen a text, and by 11:30, we were all headed to the park. Rylie was so happy to see her friends Angelica and Cole!
The kids had a such a great time! This is the same park where we had Bryce's first birthday party. OMG I can't believe that was almost a year ago! Anyway...the park has a great playground that is mostly shaded, and a splash pad. The kids love running around in that ice cold water! Of course I have a TON of pictures to show you...
We took a break from splashing around for a little picnic lunch. The kids had PB&J sandwiches, blueberries, strawberries, Cheetos and juice boxes. They must have worked up an appetite on the splash pad because they all ate really well!
After lunch, the kids were right back out on the splash pad!
Once the kids had their fill of the water, they got dressed and played on the park equipment until they were so tired they just couldn't move any more!
As we were leaving the park, I invited everyone to come over and swim later. If nothing else, it forced me to straighten up my house! We came home and the kids rested up for the pool party while Brian and I cleaned up. Cole and his mom came over, as did Angelica and her mom and dad. We had a great time swimming and hanging out. We had Chick Fil A for dinner, and I decided to bake some cupcakes for dessert. I don't have any pictures since I was in the pool too, but I'm sure you are all OK with that after the overload above!
We slept in Sunday and before I knew it, half of the day was over. We finally got dressed and headed out to Babies R Us around 3:00. We had a bunch of rewards cards that we needed to spend. Rylie had fun picking out some new clothes, but for the most part, neither of the kids wanted to be at the store. We left there an hour or so later and decided we were going to be brave and try to go out to eat. Surprisingly, the kids did really well and we all had a great dinner at Mimi's Cafe. I did take a couple pictures there just because.
I am usually such a planner and don't do much on the spur of the moment. We had such a great weekend, though, that I am learning that unplanned fun can be the best kind of fun. I can't wait for another great weekend like that!
