What a great memorial weekend! We started our weekend with a much needed date night. It was such a wonderful night…for us and the kids. Our friends Sharla and Roy took the kids and they had a blast. When we went to get them, about 11:30pm, they were still awake. Looked exhausted but still awake. The kids LOVE going to “Sharla’s House”! At least once a week, Braden asks if we can go see Sharla. It is really cute :)
We spent most of the day playing outside and helping Brad with the front landscape. He completed it on Sunday and it looks perfect. Better then I even imagined it would. Brad worked so hard and it shows. The kids, Gavin and I headed inside to take a little nap after Kim and Kevin dropped Gavin off on Sunday. I knew the kids would be up late enjoying their slumber party. After naps we had dinner and headed to the park to play at the splash pad. The kids had a great time running around getting wet. It didn't take long though before they were asking to go to the ice cream restaurant. After ice cream it was time for bed. Brad moved Ellaina’s bed into Braden’s room so they could all sleep together. The kids were actually pretty good. They didn’t fall asleep until around 10:00, but at least they all stayed in their beds.
In the morning, we ate and played around until heading to the pool for some swimming. I really wanted to take the kids to Kung fu Panda 2, but we were hesitant since they were up so late. We had mentioned it to the kids, so it was decided. The movie was a nice way to end a nice family weekend (except for Braden’s movie theatre accident).
