Life lately

I feel like I haven't blogged much about whats actually going on in our lives lately. My posts have been pretty short and to the point. I am totally lacking blogging time but I think its time for an update.

First lets start with our weekend, I know its Thursday and I am now blogging about it, LOL. Friday night was a quiet evening, the hubby went to play poker with the guys and I hung out with the girls. When they went to bed I got to work on a few projects I had started. Sometimes its nice to have a evening like that!

Saturday we took Payten to dance, left a little early so we could head to the beach to meet my parents and aunt. After a beautiful beach day we headed to this yummy Seafood restaurant to celebrate my parents birthday, aunts birthday and my parents 30th wedding anniversary. They had all you could eat crab legs, my fav! Well my dad, mom, aunts boyfriend, and I all ordered them so our entire table was filled with crab legs.... after they were all on the table the girls FLIPPED out. I mean Payten jumped into my aunts lap screaming that they were going to get her. I was trying so hard not to laugh and console her but it was hysterical. Of course Camryn saw the way Payten was acting so then she became hysterical as well. This will be something they won't live down, EVER! :-)

Sunday morning we had breakfast with my parents and then headed home to get a head start on the house chores. It was a quiet day at home. The girls got to play outside with the hubby, while I caught up on laundry and other chores :-)

It was a great weekend! I love when we get to spend time with our family! Although it wasn't the same without my sister :-(

So whats been going on around here. . .

Payten is loving school! She is learning a ton lately! Everyday she comes home with something new she learned and I love hearing all about it. She has homework, yes I said homework 3 nights a week, sometimes even 4. But its fun homework. She asks me everyday to do it, so that's a good thing. Wait til shes older and not wanting to do her homework! So I guess I will enjoy this now :-)

She learned her dance routine for her recital in June. Its super cute! I can't wait to see the costume when it comes in next month. They are going to look ADORABLE! We are actually looking into a new dance school next year due to scheduling. Saturday mornings just aren't working anymore. Its too hard. I am going to be visiting a few schools in town to see what they have to offer.

Camryn.... ahhh Camryn! She is definitely in the TERRIBLE two stage! About every other day she gets a bad report home from school saying she isn't listening. The best one was that she tried to pull the fire alarm on Friday!!!! What is she thinking?! I can tell she is going to be our hand full, that's for sure!

Cam has recently transitioned to a toddler bed. I am not sure if this is a good or bad thing. Some nights are better then others but I am hoping soon she will get the hang of it and just stay in ALL night! Next on the list is potty training! Oh joy! Waiting for school to give us the go ahead but I am thinking VERY soon!

Camryn will be joining dance next year. I am trying to decide what type of class she will attend. But I am leaning towards the tap/ballet combo. She wanted to dance so bad this year but because of her birthday she missed the cut off :-( Next fall will be super busy for us!

It's nice to actually blog about whats going on... maybe I need to do this once a month! I'll have to add this to my monthly to do list!

Hope all is well with everyone! Ready for the summer?! I know I am! I love the fun and the sun activities!!! Happy Thursday!

Your mom and aunt look like twins! Moo loves crabs. I don't ever remember her having a freak out session. My niece did however and she's three years older, but once she tasted them she got hooked. LOL.
