Action Packed Weekend

So I stayed up late so I can bring this post to you. You're welcome, but I'm tired, so feel sorry for me. This weekend was jam packed, but it felt like a really long weekend because we did so much, but they were all really fun things, so it just felt like a great weekend all around.


We had a BIG Friday and went to Costco...we decided to do a family trip, family trips anywhere always makes it more fun.

Hey look I took a picture in a grocery store and I wasn't standing next to the alcohol. I swear I never buy it.
 The kids LOVED when Mr. would push them really fast. You can't tell from the pictures, but they are laughing hysterically.

This doesn't really convey anything, but Mr. is kissing Baby Fox, and Mini Fox just wants to be close to Baby Fox. Baby Fox really likes coming to Costco because sister can sit right next him. When we go to the regular grocery store she gets put in a carrier and he always tells me she would rather sit next to him. So I guess that means we'll be shopping at Costco only from now on.

We got home ate dinner and had some time to watch Frozen


Busy, busy day! It started out with swim lessons for both kids. Baby Fox is doing great, he's swimming on his own, and last week went the length of the entire pool. This week he couldn't because the pool was too full of people. Although it doesn't appear that way in this picture.

 Mini Fox watching brother's swim lesson before her own, she's trying to get both feet in one sock...

Now her turn, she did great!

After swim lessons, we went home and Mini Fox went down for a nap, Baby Fox and I headed over to my parents for some lunch. We went to In and Out, yum! Then we headed back to their place to put Baby Fox down for a nap, so I could watch a movie with my mom.

In case you were wondering we watch a Hallmark Hall of Fame, love those cheesy chick flicks :)

Baby Fox woke up and was in a good mood

Meanwhile this girl was at the park with her Daddy having fun.

Saturday night Mr. and I headed out to a fun game night with friends.Before the games start, although we played this dot game, where each person got a set of sticker dots and had to put them on people without them knowing, whoever emptied their dot sheet first and had the least amount of dots won! No one trusted each other for a good 30 minutes.

I can't remember what game we played, but we lost and had to take a shot.

Break from the game playing

We played this other game where everyone got a playing card, and if you had an Ace you were the killer and if you had the King you were the Sheriff. Well the Ace won...he killed off the Sherrif and won the game, he's announcing himself as the Ace.

Pictionary up next, our team won!

So the other team had to take a shot.

And of course no game night would be complete without some flip cup...again, Mr. and I rocked at this!

So question for you guys, we're hosting the next game night, any super fun games out there I need to know about?


We did the coolest thing on Sunday afternoon. I had bought a simulation flight package on Living Social, and it was super cool. It was actually a gift to Mr. and my dad but I wanted to get in on the fun.

We got a 15 minute lesson on the controls.

The we suited up

And headed to our "fighter jets"

My Dad in his fighter jet, all ready to go.

I'm all ready to go

 We got to shoot each other down, it was awesome. I got Mr. a was awesome.

It was a super fun experience but one that I probably wouldn't want to repeat. I did get a little motion sick at times...

After we got back we got ready for some friends to come over. I know I told you super packed weekend!

Mr. made some ice cream

I made a strawberry pie (okay I bought the frozen Marie Calendars crust), but I did make the sauce and cut the strawberries.

The kids had a great time playing

Baby Fox picked out Mini Fox's outfit for the day

Before dinner we wanted to get a shot of the kids

 Mini Fox was not happy. she's not into group shots

And then dinner came...and everyone was happy. Yummy Thai food.

Happy Kids

We found out at dinner one of the families is moving away...not far, but far enough that we can't do quick play dates any more. That's okay though, we told them they were NOT getting out of our Halloween festivities.

Since one of the families is moving away, let's take a group shot! I think it turned out pretty good considering there are 12 people in it.

And that my friends is our action packed weekend! What did you do? Anything fun and exciting?
