Wow, we had a busy weekend and I am still recovering! To start the weekend off, Joe and I got to go on a date night!!! YEAH!!!! We had not had a date night in a while and it was definitely needed! We went out to dinner and then saw the movie "Date Night." The plot of the movie was a little stupid, but if you could over look that, it was really funny!! It was good to have a good laugh! Of course while we had our night out, the boys had their night "out" with their favorite babysitters Joi and Robbie. They were so excited about them coming over that they were shoving us out the door! They had a night full of fun including riding their bikes and scaring Joi to death!! We both agreed that they ride their bikes too fast!! Here are a couple of pics she took of them that night.
Then on Saturday morning, Joe got up nice and early to go play ball all day. We didn't really have much planned for the day, but once I found out Joe was going to be at the ball field from sun up to sun down, I decided we needed to come up with something fun to do. So my mom and I took the boys to the zoo. We have had a membership to the zoo for the last year and the boys have loved it. On Saturday night they had a members only night so we thought we would check it out. I think it is safe to say that the boys favorite animal to see is the elephants because we had to go see them at least 3 times throughout the night, but my favorite sight of the night was the lion. Every time we try to see the lions they are sleeping on top of their big rock and you can hardly see them. This time the male actually got up and walked around quite a bit. He came right up to the glass several times!! I was just so excited about seeing him up close that I had to post this picture!
The boys were so funny looking at the maps. Please notice that they are upside down, but they still clearly pointed out the animals they wanted to go see!
After we visited the animals, we went to the members only night. I think I had higher expectations, but it was okay. There were a lot of people there and it was a little unorganized, but we had fun anyways. They had different characters that the boys got their picture with and then each character had a story time.
We then waited in line for 45 min. for the boys to get their faces painted! After waiting in line for that long, Luke wanted a snake and Cade wanted a rocket. I did not wait in line that long for a squiggle line and a rectangle!!!! We were going with something a little bigger than that! I finally convinced them to get spiderman and they loved it!!
They looked so cute!
Of course they had to immediately turn into spiderman so they were shooting web at each other and everyone else!! :)
Luke's face in this picture cracks me up!!
Finally, we made it to Sunday and planned to go to church and then just rest. Well.....my dad called that morning and asked if we wanted to go to the lake after church....how can we resist that!! ( I can't get it to stop underlining everything...sorry!!) So after church we spent a very long but relaxing day on the lake. The boys LOVE going to the lake. I actually didn't take any pictures while we were there on Sunday, but these are some pics from a couple of weeks ago when we went out.
So after all of this craziness, I was pretty much out of commission yesterday. I was exhausted and had a headache all day....it was worth it though. I had such a fun weekend with my boys!!
P.S. I thought it would be fun to add a poll to the blog to see what everyone thinks the sex of the baby will be. We find out in a few weeks so make sure you put your vote down!!
