The fun I would have missed


Here are some fun things that happened over the weekend. Things that I might have missed if I had been at a conference (you know….that one….BlogHer). However, Mr. Serious did say that we should make it a goal for next year! Woohoo, NYC here I come. Who’s going to help me get there?

Back to my point…what I would have missed…

Aunt Emily came for a visit. Just look at that greeting.

#2 doing her army crawl and towing a car and a block bag around with her. She brought it all the way into the dining room.

#1 diving onto the kitchen table to help Aunt Emily clean it. What is it with this girl and cleaning? If you leave a spray bottle out, she will use it.

#1 putting on a headband like a rock star (which totally reminds me of my very first post).

And, not that I could ever forget, but we have documentation of #1’s first toilet cleaning. She was seriously in there for over 15 minutes. Just scrubbing away. She loved it. And, please believe me when I say this was totally her idea.

#2’s first splits. I guess she was channeling mom’s younger dancing years with this move.


And, an adults night out. A friend came over to watch the kids, so Emily, Mr. Serious and I could go out.

This one might be a framer!

It was a great weekend, and I truly was happy to home to enjoy my family.

    Sometimes I get frustrated or upset when I don’t get out of the house for an event, getaway, etc. Instead of dwelling on what I didn’t get to do, I try to make it a special time with my kids and focus on what I DO get to do, with them. Looks like that’s what you did here too!
