Today our family did something for the first time. We split our family up three different ways and went in all different directions. Our day:
8-10am Everybody up and get ready to go.
10:30am Grandma Kathy picks Cara up for the day. They went to church, lunch, to grandmas, and then to do some shopping.
11:45 Matt, Meg, Eli, Brady, and Allie leave the house and head to Sunset Bay. We drop Allie off with Grandma Sandy and Grandpa Ron at their cottage. Allie wasn't feeling well again today, a little fever and runny nose!
2:30 Matt, Meg, Eli, and Brady continue driving to Erie PA to go to a birthday party. Happy Birthday Carter.
6:00 Arrive back at Sunset Bay, Burger King in hand, and give the boys a quick dinner at the cottage. Matt, Meg, Eli, Brady, and Allie drive home.
8:15pm Arrive home where Cara is already asleep in bed. Get everyone else settled and ready for bed.
Brady report: My once completely reserved and clingy mamma's boy was a happy-little-partygoer! A few minutes spent warming up and he was walking all over the place even amidst quite a crowd of people. Minnie Mouse was a surprise guest at the party and when Brady saw Minnie, he bolted away from me waving, and saying, "Hi Minnie, Hi-i-i-i-i!" The new tradition of backseat bickering continued part of the way home from Erie. Today's debate, does Daddy drive a van or a car. Of course, Daddy usually drives his car, but on family outings he is the captain of the awesome van.
It sounded something like this:
Eli: "Daddy drive the blue van."
Brady: "No! Daddy drive the black car!"
Eli: "Daddy drive the VAN!"
Brady: "NO! Daddy drive the car!"
Eli: (almost crying) "Daddy drive the VAN!"
Mommy: "Who wants to watch an Elmo DVD?"
A great time was had by all! What a busy weekend. Matt and I are tyring to get the house in some order since we really slacked on household chores. All in the name of fun...bring on summer!
