Mother’s Day Weekend

TheBoys_May2013_ 014It has been a busy weekend for our family and a good one too. I could probably start on Thursday night! There was a Mom and Knight dinner at Chick-Fil-A and the boys and I had a special “Date Knight” there. They had activities and cool swords for the boys-they had so much fun!

After school on Friday we jumped in the car and headed to appointment and then stopped with Grandma and had Subway. Sam (easily) finished off his own foot long (with ALL of the fixings like mine so it’s more like a salad with bread) reminding me why we don’t go to Subway (I can’t afford that many foot long subs!) We rushed home in time to get the boys ready for the Stake Father/Son’s Outing and got them on their way. They were so excited and happily jumped in the car and waved goodbye!

TheBoys_May2013_ 016Saturday morning came early, along with baseball, lunch at Costco and then naps (thank goodness). While the little boys were napping Sam, Nathan and I played Settlers of Catan, which Sammy is really enjoying, (he even read the box and saw the expansion packs that were available and promptly asked for one for his birthday—or if not, he said, he could ask Santa for one, no big deal! ;) )  We decided to celebrate Mother’s Day early and Thad planned a little outing to Downtown Disney. We let the boys play at the LTheBoys_May2013_ 015ego store for a while and then ate dinner at Rainforest Café! It was yummy and the boys had a blast!

Sunday we enjoyed a beautiful morning at church and the boys got to sing to me (well, to all f the moms) and of course I cried. I got Benny boy to sleep for a while in sacrament meeting and then when he woke up Thad took him to Nursery which made my life SO EASY! I can’t believe he’s old enough to go (but I sure am relieved!) I am missing my mom but she’s enjoying a nice river cruise in Norway with my dad and some friends! I fixed some pasta with meatballs (I’m okay with cooking as long as I don’t have to do the dishes :( those are the worst!) and corn on the cob. YUM! (Plus, if I cook I get to choose what we eat, right?!)

And oh, I forgot, some fun news for Mother’s Day? We’re expecting again :) and this time it’s a girl!  The boys are beyond over joyed and you should have seen the twinkle in Thad’s eye on Friday when they told us! He has been giddy ever since. I think that he has been patiently waiting for his princess. :)
