We had a rough start to our week but it ended on a high note and that's what I'm focusing on!
The kids are always so cute with our dog and Brayden is always asking me to take their picture :)
Tuesday Miss A had her gymnastics class and all was going well until the end where she fell and hit her gums on what I'm not even sure, but there was lots and lots of blood and tears. My poor girl!
Thankfully the pain was short lived and we were outside playing later in the day :)
Wednesday night we let Brayden stay up a little late to get some one on one time and me and him did a craft and had the best time!! This boys love language is for sure quality time
We had a playdate with my SIL and the kids had tons of playing at our favorite place,the Carousel Room! (poor A looks like she's missing a tooth but it's just her injured gums)
I also went and volunteered at Brayden's school for the book fair (so thankful for my Mom watching the girls so I could do this!)
I tell ya, elementary school kids are so funny! Most of them walked in to the book fair and went straight to the little toys they were selling and I would need to remind them to go pick out some books otherwise their parents might not be too happy. Some kids even had notes written on their money envelope from their parent telling them to make good choices, LOL!
Here's what Brayden got (thankfully since I was there he only bought 1 toy, a football pen, lord knows what would have happened if I wasn't there!)
The girls and I played at the park while Brayden had soccer practice, Ella's new favorite thing ever is the tire swing!
Thursday night was Ella's turn to stay up late and we did some crafting. We put together a Halloween chain which was a super glittery mess but we still had fun :)
Last week before we left for preschool, Ella asked Avery if she wanted to go to school too - of course Miss A said yes! So Ella gave her a mini backpack and A was so happy. I didn't realize what kind of damage we were doing by letting Avery pretend to go to school because in girlfriends head there was no pretending!
When we got there she even went in the bathroom with Ella and washed her hands and then she headed straight for the door. I don't have a picture taken after I told she couldn't go because she was in full out melt down mode! That taught me never to actually play school again on the way to Ella's school!
Thursday night we had Brayden's conference at school and we were so happy to hear all the great things his teacher had to say! We had to laugh though because she told us he is surrounded by chatty girls at his table and they all have crushes on him. Too funny!
Friday, Rick took off since Brayden was off and we headed to the mall for lunch then off to Gameworks for some fun, then ended at a new ice cream place where you basically make your own ice cream sandwhich with your choice of cookies and ice cream, YUM!!
|of course we had to feed the alligator as we passed by Rainforest Cafe|
We had such a fun family day!
Saturday morning was visiting day at Ella's dance class so I got to sit in and watch, she was having so much fun!
After dance, we headed to Brayden's soccer game but most of time was spent at the park of course!

Hope you all are having a great start to your week! See you tomorrow :)
