This past weekend was fun - so, so much fun. And exhausting - so incredibly exhausting. But awesome memories were made. Kids and adults alike had a blast and that's really all that matters.
I only worked a half day on Friday. I picked up C from daycare and headed down to my parents house. Camden was going to have a sleepover at Nana & Papa's house!! I hung out there for a couple hours and then headed to pick up our niece and nephew. Their birthday gift this year was a sleepover and some one on one time with Uncle Matt and I. Our first stop...a Red Wings baseball game - complete with pizza, hot dogs, ice cream, cotton candy, balloon animals and FIREWORKS!!!! It was a late night and the kids were out cold 2 minutes after we left the parking lot!!
Saturday morning we all got up around 8;15. We facetimed with our little man quick and just hung out. Matt left to get Camden around 9 and got home shortly after 10. While Matt was gone the kids and I played downstairs. The highlight was blowing up an entire bag of balloons and seeing who could get their balloon the biggest without it popping :) Once C and Matt got home we headed out for donuts!
Next on the agenda? The zoo. It was a quick trip but all the kids had fun. Kids and animals go together like PB & J - that's just how it is :)
After the zoo we headed home for some lunch and put C down for a nap. During his nap time we watched the movie Tarzan. Once C was up we were off again - this time to Canandaigua to meet up with Matt's sisters and other niece and nephew. We ordered pizza then spent the rest of the time swimming at the hotel pool. All 5 kids are little fish - they seriously had SO much fun!!! We left around C's bedtime and he fell asleep on the way home.
Sunday we got up, I gave Camden a haircut, then we all scurried around to get ready so we could be in Canandaigua by 10:30 for a birthday brunch for Matt's mom. I've gotta admit - we were all tired, and having Camden sit long enough to enjoy a meal out is tough. But we survived (barely...) After brunch we attempted to join the rest of the gang for a geocache. But Camden just wasn't having it. He was crying. He was tired. So we cut out early so we could get home. It was a fun weekend but dang were we all exhausted!!
