So last week my Dad was in town from California (business trip). I miss my parents so much. This May they will have been gone for 1 yr already! I can't believe it. Of course the Children were Thrilled to see their Pap-Pap! He brought lots of tooth decaying goodies, and also took them on a shopping spree. Where you ask? The Greatest Place on Earth! Or, close to it, The Disney Store! Oh did they have fun picking out goodies there! I was a little sad I missed it!
Audrey picked out a Sleeping beauty set with dress up dolls. She calls prince charming "Prince Charlie". It's too cute! Here is a picture of her just loving Princess Aurora.
Christian picked out some really neat little remote control cars from the movie Cars. (what a novel idea) :)
My dad left this past saturday and it was such a crazy day! He had to leave here around 1pm to make his flight and we had to leave around 2:30pm to make it on time to a wedding. So, long story short. My dad drops the rental car off and sees that Christian's booster seat is still in the back! We have 20min to make it the wedding on time. The airport is 20min away. My dad can't leave the seat at the airport so he rides back to the rental office to see if they will hold it for me to p/u. At this point we are all running pretty late. The wedding was at 2:30 and it was already 2:45pm. I am waiting to hear from him to see if they will hold it and he finally calls back. He missed his flight! I felt awful! But said not to blame myself, he also left his keyring on their keychain, he would have had to go back anyway. So we head to the wedding (incredibly late). But we had such a good time! Even Daddy got some dancing in.
So after our craziness things just got backed up and we had a lot of schoolwork to catch up on. We have very "spring-like" weather, with all the rain and grayness. But today we got a break! 74 and SO sunny! So we went out side and went on a nature scavanger hunt. It was fun, and the children LOVED being outdoors. Something about that Fresh spring air and sunshine, it does a body good!
Here are a few photos from our fun.
Wilding sticks and Bubbles:
Sandboxes and Nature bracelets
and of course, Chalk Board fun
And the last one (I promise) With Pap-Pap:
(with potty-training-pants and all)
So, this has turned into the worlds longest blog. So sorry! :) yet, not really. Ok, so I am off to enjoy the rest of the day!
