Aquatica fun!

Had a great weekend with my girls!  My hubby was working all weekend so we got to spend some quality girl time together.  After Camryn's soccer game Saturday morning we headed over to Aquatica to meet our friends.  We stayed for hours, almost stayed until the park closed for the day.  We got home around 5p, showered and then off we went to do some shopping.  The girls wanted new nightgowns and they need shoes for the cruise so we were on a mission.  Can you believe after going to FIVE, yes FIVE stores we didn't walk out with one single thing?!  I couldn't believe it!  I was shocked!  

Sunday we laid low for the most part.  We started our day off with a yummy breakfast at First Watch, then off to work the hubby went.  We attempted AGAIN to see if we could find the girls nightgowns, but no such luck so home we went.  We spent the rest of the day crafting and hanging out watching princess movies.  I even squeezed in organizing some of my cabinets in the kitchen.  And the bathroom cabinets in the master bath.


I am bummed the weekend has come to an end... but only 13 more days until our vacation, woot woot!

Last soccer game

Yesterday was the last soccer game for the Spring 2013 season.  What a great season the Purple team had!  We kicked some serious butt today!  Great team work!  It took literally until the last practice and game for Camryn to actually get into it.  But hey better late then never, right?  So I am thinking Cam will be returning to soccer after all.  :-)

Countdown is on!!

Ahhh I just LOVE getting these emails!  We are getting sooooo close... now we are down to 15 days!  I am so ready for our vacation, well not packed but mentally I am ready!  I am so looking forward to 7 days of pure relaxation!  I am so excited that I already booked a trip for next year... :-)

Payten's 5 year check up

Last Monday, Payten FINALLY went for her 5 year check up.  Due to lovely insurance they wouldn't let me schedule it unless it was at least exactly 1 year from her last well visit.  Grr!  

Our visit started out great.  They weighed her (33 lbs - 6% percentile), checked her height (39 inches - 2% percentile), asked her a few questions about what she knows, and then off to the exam room we went.  As you can tell by her percentile's she is going to be a peanut.  But when you put both her weight and height together she is in the 53% percentile :-)
I should have known better then to make an appointment for first thing Monday morning.  It was pretty busy so we waited a bit.  To make the time go by faster my hubby decided it would be fun to blow up a rubber glove and hit it back and forth in the room.  Ahhhh he is like a BIG little kid :-)
After a while the doctor came in, did the usual check up and asked Payten if she knew her abc's, if she could write her name, and a few others.  Before you know that was over and then the nurse came in for the dreading vaccines :-(.  Payten was all happy until after the first shot, and by the third she was so mad at us.  She cried for a few minutes and even said to us as the tears were falling down her face "I thought you guys loved me", that truly just ripped my heart out :-(.  Of course then I had to explain that it was important she got these so she could stay well and protect her against bad germs.  I felt horrible :-(

Unfortunately since I had to get back to work, off to school she went.  Luckily she did great at school and it wasn't long before she totally forgot about those dreaded shots!
On her way to school :-(

Magic Game

Okay its safe to say this month is going down at the worst blogging month ever :-/.  Every time I try to get on here to write a post I get distracted.  Good distractions of course!  My husband has been really busy work and rarely home these days so I've been spending quality time with my girls and loving every minute of it!

Before our crazy week started, the hubby and I did get to attend the Magic game of the season.  Our friends are huge Chicago Bulls fans so of course we had to go together!  The Magic lost of course, horrible this season but it was a great night out to start the crazy week!

Our Weekend

It's been crazy over here!  Which is why I have been MIA!  I am hoping to play catch up this week but it seems like this week is turning out to be as crazy as last week :-)

Our weekend was pretty relaxing.  Friday night was supposed to our monthly Bunco girls night out but since so many had to back out we did a girls night out Bonefish style.  Haha.  It's one of my favorite places so of course I didn't mind.

Saturday was an early morning for us.  Camryn had an 8:30a soccer game.  So needless to say we were up by 7a.  Not fun to be up that early on the weekend!  After the game the girls and I went over to ChickFilA for breakfast.  The hubby was working all day so it was a girls day.  We came home after ChickFilA and as I did some spring cleaning the girls enjoyed some time playing outside.  We squeezed in a short nap before heading to a few stores.

Sunday morning we headed to our favorite breakfast place, First Watch.  It's just so yummy every time!  Then off to Aquatica we went.  The sunny wasn't beaming but it was still really nice.  We got to hang out there for a few hours before the girls were exhausted, then home we went.  The rest of the day was a blur as we attempted to clean the garage, oh joy!

Our weekend

Saturday was a usual Saturday... started our day off at Camryn's soccer game then home for some lunch and hung home most of the day.  Worked on some house projects.

Sunday was a birthday party day!  We celebrate Peighton's 5th birthday!  The girls had a blast!
