Despite the lack of proof, we have been very busy! The girls and I plan at least one activity per day and the weather has been fabulous for outdoor play and walks. Today, we tested out a cool place that we've been scoping out for the winter months. It's called Recreation Outlet and it's a place that sells large play equipment and outdoor toys. They have the inside set up as a huge show room of all of the items and they allow kids to come in a play on everything! It gets a little busy, but it's going to be great for getting out some energy as the weather gets cooler.
We went today and had a blast. It was a little crazy trying to chase after and keep track of my two kids, amongst a million other playing children, but the girls enjoyed themselves and I certainly got a workout!
Since the only time I seem to be able to safely snap pictures these days is when the girls are "contained," here's a picture of my impatient girls at the car dealership, when we brought my car in for servicing. Thankfully, since they rarely get to watch TV, they were fairly enamored with the cartoons playing in the waiting room!
And one last picture to share! A few weekends ago, we traveled to CT for my step-sister, Kate's, wedding. It was a long drive and BUSY weekend, but as usual, the girls far exceeded my expectations. They were flexible with our travels and never got cranky as we kept them up well past bedtime for the rehearsal dinner and other events. They really are terrific during travel, which I very much appreciate!! Here we are at the rehearsal dinner. Don't the girls look adorable?!? Oh and I should mention that this picture was taken at 8:30 pm (1.5 hours past bedtime) and they are still smiling!
We are so excited to have some of our oldest friends, Paul and Rachel, come to visit this weekend. We have a fun weekend planned and I can't wait!!! Paul and Rachel are expecting their first child in February (a little girl!), so we hope to give them a quick taste of parenthood while they are here! And a huge early thank you to Grandma and Auntie Aubrey, as they will be on babysitting duty a lot this weekend, while we get out for some much needed adult time with our friends!! I promise to "try" and take some pictures!
