Weekend Shenanigans - Family Fun in the G

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Another weekend is in the books!  It amazes me how fast the weeks and weekends go by when you're on break.  I looked at the calendar and realized I only have about a month left until it's time to head back to school.
Seriously.  Don't make me throw up.
I guess a month is a long ass time but there is a ton of stuff that needs to get done in that month.  Like redecorating three bedrooms and preparing for a little bundle of joy.  
No big deal.


This weekend we headed up to northern Indiana to visit family and attend a wedding.  We decided to go up Friday afternoon and leave Monday afternoon.  I have to say it was the best idea ever.  There was hardly any rushing to see people and we actually enjoyed ourselves.  But can I just say, however, that weddings are much less stressful without children involved?  Yes, I love my children beyond words but Kurtis and I spent the majority of the wedding standing by the stairs, making trips to the bathroom and chasing little feet that continuously ran and ran and ran.  Cohen is also a danceaholic and I can't tell you how many times I told him he had to get off the dance floor because it wasn't our turn yet.  And of course it was during the most inappropriate times like when they did the Father-Daughter dance, their first dance, a slideshow -- it was Cohen's dance party wherever he was really.  I can only imagine how many pictures I accidentally photo bombed.  We were exhausted by the end of the night, but Lola's middle of the night wake up party from the previous night didn't help either.  Can I get an AMEN for parents though?  They had no problems getting up with the kids the next morning so we could sleep in.  Sometimes I wonder why they don't live with us full time.  
And then I remember - because that's not reality Kait.  

We ended the weekend with some quality time with my parents and Cohen's favorite Auntie Rah Rah as well as celebrating our sweet nephew's 2nd birthday.  I can't tell you how fun it was for Sophie, Cohen and Lola to be able to spend time with all of their cousins in one place.  Sadly we don't do it enough and we all agreed it needs to happen more than just during the holidays.

But now it's Monday evening and I'm ready to take on the week ahead of us.  First order of business?  Taking the plunge and ordering the big double stroller.  This is a big purchase my friends not only because it costs an arm and a leg but because it's starting to get real.
Oh. Snap.

Have a fabulous week!  Crossing my fingers for a gorgeous 4th of July!
