*I put a few pics in the past few posts if you have time to take a look back...*
Let's see, what a weekend we had! So very busy - packed FULL of family time (YAY!) and baby snuggles (woo hoo!) and a few "very firsts" for my sweet and oh so active Mary Louise and David.
We decided to take a trip to the zoo!! Now, the zoo is one of my favorite places. I've always loved it. Brent has taken me to more zoos in more cities than I can recall off the top of my head. We've been "that couple" more times than I can count- the ones without kids - the ones that stick out like a sore thumb amidst the school buses, mom jeans, and dirty yet rosey cheeks and grins. To say that I was excited to FINALLY bring Mary Louise and David to the zoo is SUCH an understatement. We really had a great time...
On our way home, we stopped by the very end of a very close friend's birthday party. It was perfect timing really - the last 20 minutes of the party so the children there were much more interested in Zoe's gifts and the fun jump than the babies. We stayed inside and chatted while the kids played outside...though we did catch the last few minutes of the mini ponies and brought Mary Louise and David over for a quick peek. Mary Louise, true to her sweet personality, was pretty apprehensive the about whole thing while David actually sat proudly on the tiny saddle and grabbed the horn! The owners were very sweet - a family whose daughter and son in law has just found that they were expecting twin girls.
The party favors were build a bear type gifts and of course they saved some for Mary Louise and David...
On Sunday, we went to church - Brent is the head of a small cooking group and it was their Sunday to cook breakfast. It went well, the babies did reasonably well for the service - unlike last Sunday when halfway through, we finally called it quits and left because they were just so very rambunctious! We went home, and enjoyed a quick visit from our dear friend Shane who was passing through on his way back to Texas, and enjoyed our afternoon together.
The week has been EVEN BUSIER than the weekend! The babies are so incredibly active now that I have trouble using my pumping time as blogging time as they are in constant motion and need of something. (Hence the fact that this blog entry actually began on Sunday!) Couple that with my running mind current lack of focus and it doesn't exactly make for easy writing.
Anyhow, it's done now...and I got the upstairs bathroom functioning and organized yesterday during Abbey play day!
