What a great weekend!

My weekend was such a blast, I wish I could have another right now :-) It started out on Friday evening by going to my neighbor's house for a happy hour. I know I gush about my neighbors a lot, but boy are we lucky!! We have all become good friends and really enjoy hanging out together. We had some appetizers and drinks and enjoyed getting to wind down after a busy week. I came home around 9:45 as Chloe just could not make it any longer, but Tony and Noah stayed out until midnight! I know, we get parents of the year awards for letting our 4 year old stay out that late, but he was having a blast and not acting tired at all, and we don't do this very often.

We went to Dutch Wonderland the next morning, and now I know why everyone raves about it there! Since it's a family amusement park, it was so clean and pretty, and it was a blast! I thought the rides would all be really tame, but there were plenty of rides that we went on that gave us quite a thrill!! And let me tell you, my son definitely takes after me and not his wimpy daddy in his amusement park, thrill-seeking ways, because he never once got nervous or felt dizzy, sick, etc. He is hardcore! Even Chloe and my 2 1/2 year old nephew had plenty to go on, so it was a great day for everyone!

Yesterday we stayed in and relaxed. Tony worked on building the wooden playhouse my parents got Noah for his birthday, and I had to go to Noah's preschool to clean. Since it's a co-op, we are assigned one weekend day a year to do a thorough cleaning, so I worked hard yesterday :-)

I have another Scenic Route layout to drop off. I'm really loving this Sonoma line - the colors are gorgeous!

Journaling reads: By 18 months, you already had quite a decent vocabulary, although you didn't say all of the words correctly. Oatmeal was one of them. In a quiet and sweet tone, you said "eat me." I used to joke that given your temperament, it was quite possible that your mispronunciation was planned! :-) At 21 months, you now say oatmeal correctly , but I must confess that I miss hearing "eat me"!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, too!

Charlotte Cramer said...

Let me just say that I LOVE this Layout!!! The colors are gorgeous and I love the 3D flowers!!!!!! I am so glad you guys have fun neighbors!!!!!!

Stephanie Rice said...

I LOVE the colors in that LO!! So pretty! And your work is beautiful as always.

Isn't it sad when the kiddos start saying things correctly? Andrew still says "f" for any "tr" words so we still get a good laugh when he says "truck" but most of his Andrewisms are slowly disappearing.

Renee Lamb said...

hee hee! i love your layout first of all. and second - so glad y'all have good neighbors! And I don't think it's bad that he was up that late. It's only once in a while. Our kiddos stay up that late every night when they are here visiting! LOL - big hugs girly!

Lucy Edson said...

Oh, don't feel too bad about the late night! My dd likes to stay up late any time I let her! lol And she seems fine. ;)

Love those photos on your LO!! Adorable! The pom-pom trim is fab!!

Jen said...

What a wonderful weekend. Couldn't we always use another? ;)

Love this layout! It is sooooo darn cute!

Andrea Amu said...

Fun weekend for sure! I was just at the outlets across from Dutch Wonderland last Tuesday... glad you all enjoyed yourself.

Another cute page, girl!

Kelli said...

Had to drop you a line and see how you were holding up after witnessing two TERRIBLE Sox games over the past two nights.

Last night was just embarrassing. I am trying to keep the faith but if we don't pull out all the stops for Thursday we are sunk.

Hope all of your fingers and toes are crossed. I AM happy Dice-K will be on the mound!

doris said...

"eat me" that title is totally cracking me up. as is your comment abt your wimpy amusement park dh. ha.

Diana said...

Finally was able to view your blog and loved all the newest pictures you posted. I too "loved" when they brought Noah out in the wagon, you could see how special he felt!

Of course how could we ever forget Chloe's pronounciation of "oatmeal", that will forever stay ingrained in our heads, way too funny!
