A Very Wet Weekend!

Well I think this weekend was the busiest and least restful weekend we have ever had. My weekend started on Thursday because little Camilla wasn’t feeling well and so Kendra stayed home to comfort her as only mommies can. My Thursday went by super fast with just Evelyn and I stayed super busy. Lately Evelyn has decided to sleep until 8- 8:30 in the morning (going to bed at 7:15ish) which I am fine with except… Her afternoon naps are shorter… So you either get one or the other. Don’t get me wrong, I love her awake, playing time so much but that is all that is accomplished… But this is motherhood, right folks? I love being a mom so much and wouldn’t trade it for the world!
Anywho… Friday rolls around and it is Fair day at Ovilla Christian school which means Aaron is off. Got to love those school holidays! So we took advantage of having a lazy morning and I fixed a hot breakfast (which doesn’t happen very often these days). Aaron and I worked around the house and got some stuff done which is always nice. THEN… Friday night Aaron and I got to go on a date to Shakespeare In The Park and it was really fun. Iris and Richie were sweet enough to watch our little munchkin so we could get out alone. We got to have dinner at Applebee’s (two entrees for $20, great deal) and then we went to watch Macbeth in the park. The play started a bit late and so when 11pm rolled around we left a little early. We did get to see most of the play and we had great seats.

Saturday… We decided to make this our fair day, really bad idea. We both knew that there was a 80-100% chance of rain and yet we still decided to go, with a baby, and only one umbrella. We really wanted to go because it was the only day that my brother and sister-in-law could go. So we went and it was raining and raining and raining. The rain never stopped. We should have guessed by the looks of things and (hmmmmm) the weather report 🙂

Anyways… Believe it or not we still had fun. We saw a dog show, had some great fair food and we even got to take Evelyn to see all the animals (she loved it) which I will post more pictures of soon. We even sat in on a blender demonstration with the Dodds and got free smoothie samples! By the end of the day we were sopping wet, Evelyn was really tired and so were we for that matter. We couldn’t stop though, we had a birthday party to get to (Richie Harp “grandad” turned 60). We stopped and got a much needed In N Out burger and headed to the party…Iris did a great job and I think Richie was kinda surprised 🙂
By Sunday… Well we had a very tired baby (no naps and staying up late) but we had an ordination to get to. Our dear friend Matt Odum was getting ordained in Denton (our home a couple months ago) *tear*. Sunday morning we went to Denton Pres and got to see old friends and enjoy church. By the end of church, Evelyn was melting down, she needed a nap but Aaron and I had to eat and so for the first time since she was a little bitty girl, she fell asleep on me in the restaurant and stayed there the whole time (while I attempted to eat my salad left handed, I only spilled a little bit).

Then before the ordination Aaron really needed a haircut and so we were able to drop by Katie and Lou Korom’s house. Aaron got a hair cut and we got some play time with Nola, they had fun together!

After that, we headed to Nana and Pops so that I could finish baking some stuff before the evening and Evelyn got to hangout with Nana for a couple hours. Evelyn has a blast with Nana 🙂 once again on the road, we made it to the church and Evelyn lost it… So sleepy. She took a little cat nap in the car before the service and that helped to get her though, I went and got a Starbucks to get me through. The service was wonderful and Matt is now ordained! Very exciting. Evelyn played hard with her friends Nola and Ava and ate lots of carrots and other food. Then we drove home and Evelyn had another late night but…. She made up for it this morning by sleeping until 9:15am and then taking a 3 hour nap and then going to bed at 7:15pm, all I can say is she better be rested tomorrow! I on the other hand am still awake but I should be in my bed asleep… But come on people, this is the only time I have to blog and I should be working on my etsy inventory! Always so much to do.
Alrighty, bed time!
P.S. can I just say how I am loving the weather and can’t WAIT for the first real cold snap (should be this weekend)…. Yay fall!
