Another Busy Weekend

Another weekend gone too fast, but at least it was a 3 day weekend for me! Third one in row, I could get used to this, but unfortunately this week is a full 5 day week, wahh!!

It started on Thursday. Mr. had a recording session at the house, so after the gym I headed over to my parents. When did she get big enough for riding this?! All by herself...

Sitting in brother's high chair, barely reaches over the table, but it works.

It was my brother's birthday, who lives in Vegas, his wife finished making his cake while we were talking to him, so we all sang him Happy Birthday, and then sent him this photo, in case he forgot what we looked like.

Mini Fox didn't get her evening nap, and fell promptly asleep in the two miles it took to get home. Scratch that, the first 500 feet of being in the car, we didn't even get out of my parents driveway before she was asleep.

Thursday night, this came out! Not too late to join in on the fun!

Friday morning we went to a friends house for a play date. Her daughter loved Mini Fox and was constantly giving her hugs, too precious.

All the kids, I love that Baby Fox is giving his sister a little kiss

Mini Fox discovering shadows, she kept trying to grab the light

This guy, has eaten 4 pieces of toast with butter this week, this is 4 more pieces of toast than he's ever had, recording this milestone, perhaps next step is an actual sandwich.

Baby Fox and I butted heads, literally, it hurt...a LOT, so we got out the "owie hand and owie foot"

But had to laugh at ourselves cause we were being so dramatic

Saturday I went to the gym before the kids got up for a personal training session (free with my new membership, yes please!). I did the stair climber for the first time, wow that's a workout! I'm still walking funny.

Afterwards I went home and collected Baby Fox for a Costco run.

He's proving to be helpful these days!

He actually got it under the basket by himself, I will have to bring him on more Costco runs.

After naptime we headed to a party in LA, the traffic was CRAZY, it took us 50 minutes to go 20 miles...ugh. But we eventually got there.

Gotta get dressed up for the party. Actually Mr. picked out her outfit, he claims she did...I have my doubts.

It was a kids place that had all sort of stuff to do.

Can you guess the theme? I'll recap the party tomorrow.

Then we headed to my Aunt and Uncles for dinner with some of my cousins. It was so much fun seeing everyone and watching Baby Fox with his little cousin, is just too cute.

Playing Duck, Duck, Goose, I somehow kept getting picked as the Goose...

 This is Cutie #4 from Cousin #3 (did you get that?) Cutie #4 kept wanting to "hold the baby"

 Dinner, surf and turf, yum!

Cutie #4 really wanted to feed Mini Fox dinner, did a pretty good job if you ask me.

Dessert, Aunt G spoils them! Ice cream and muffins for dessert.

Some horse play before Cousin #3 and family left


Good-byes, I love how much they get along and love each other. Reminds me of me and all of my cousins growing up.

We stayed the night there and to our amazement everyone slept till their normal time, miracles do happen!

Mini Fox getting her daily dose of prune juice, you know to keep things flowing...

Back at home and watching How to Train Your Dragon before naptime.

She was giving me the best kisses! I love it, every wet slobbery one of them.

This guy took a 3.5 hour nap, when we actually woke him up...which turns out was a mistake because he was then up till after 11pm last night. Luckily he is REALLY good about just staying in his room on his bed waiting for sleep to happen. Next time, we'll wake him up after 2.5 hours! All that playing last night must have really tuckered him out.

Cause sleeping on the floor is so much better. I checked in on him and he was sleeping like this, I went to the grocery store and came back and he was in the EXACT same spot. Good thing I didn't wait for him to go to the store.
That pretty much sums up our weekend, we had a great weekend and wish that every weekend was a 3 day one!
