Oh boy. You know it's been a long, busy weekend, when you are ready for bed at 8:44pm on a Sunday night.
But, I can't complain because it's been a really FUN weekend! Friday, we took our kids to the state fair. The "big" fair is in September, but they do a quick 4-day weekend in the spring that's fun for the kiddos. My mom and sister bravely took all 6 kids early in the afternoon, and then we met them there after work. Things can be summed up in rides, food, rides, animals, rides, and more food. Brett had a minor meltdown at the end, when he wanted just one more ride and he'd used his all up. And by minor, I mean a full on cryfest that included Adam hauling all 70+ lbs of him, up over his shoulders like a sack of potatoes, out to the car while the whole world was watching.
Sometimes being a parent is a pretty humbling experience.
Saturday was a beaaaautiful day, so we sent the kids outside and made them stay there! I'm serious. They HAVE to play outside unless they have a broken limb or are bleeding. We got some cleaning and party prep done and finished errands.
In the afternoon, I took the 3 littles to a cute birthday party for a sweet 2-year old boy. (He's betrothed to Brylie). #sorryfellasshestaken
Saturday night was date night! We got a babysitter and had a wild night at the football auction for the hubby's football team. Well, it wasn't exactly wild, but it was really fun!
Finally, Sunday, was Jake's birthday party. I'm planning to do a whole post on it, but a couple sneak peek pictures. Starting with this one of Jake and me. I can hardly believe how old he is and that I can fit into his jerseys! I mean, hey, if I can't share clothes with my daughters yet, my sons will have to do! ;-)
The party was at a local high school (where the hubby coaches football). The boys had the BEST time playing football and hanging out with each other. Lots more pictures and details coming soon!
