Tony had to work today, so the kids and I went on a 2 mile bike ride, and Noah did great! He had to get off to walk his bike up the bigger hills a couple of times, but he rode most of it - I was very impressed. Chloe had the best ride of all - she got to sit back and relax on the back of my bike. After lunch, we again enjoyed the nice weather with one of our favorite springtime activities:
The kids are now napping, and I'm going to relax myself. Tonight i'm heading out to a girlfriend's house for our annual Girl's Weekend. Unfortunately, Girl's Weekend has turned into Girl's Overnight for most of us this year, but i'm excited to at least get one night/morning with some of my closest girlfriends. Afterall, you're never too old for sleepovers...
I'll leave you with my most recent layout made with CMK's gorgeous April kit. You guys will recognize the story, lol. For those who missed my last post and don't feel like strolling down, here is the journaling for you:
Although these photos are of you, this story is actually about your brother and how your friend Mr. Doggie came to be. There is a toy machine at Safeway that Noah always asks to play - the kind with the crane where you hit the button to lower it to try to win a stuffed animal. Well, the stuffed animals are the big prizes, but when you don't win the big prize, a second, smaller crane closes down on some candy on the other side of the machine. On this particular day, I gave your brother the dollar to play. So he moves the crane, hits the button and down it goes...picking up a stuffed dog! You and I were so excited for Noah, congratulating him for winning the dog. Your brother, however, was anything but happy - he started crying hysterically, screaming "but I wanted the candy!!!" Needless to say, you ended up with sweet Mr. Doggie and your brother - well, he's lucky that his mama is a sucker, as I gave him another dollar to purposefully lose that time!
A big thanks to my girl Doris for letting me plagiarize her by stealing her "good things come to those who lose" line ;-)
Also wanted to mention that my sweet and very funny friend Lisa is doing a RAK on her blog to celebrate her birthday (see... I told you she was sweet!). You can check it out here.
Happy weekend, everyone! Hope you are having a great weather weekend yourselves (and finding time to play!)!
