Still catching up! Here are some thing to remember during this short but very long week!
Me feeling kinda terrible – which seems to be the theme the last two weeks. *Note to self: Do not wait so long to go to the doctor
Mimi keeping me company
I came out of the shower to find 3 of them snuggled in my bed
dinner table dancing
Stage rehearsal for Zooey’s recital
Dimitri finally got a new bike!
Mindcraft convention on the couch
Us making fun of our kids who have really been into you tube videos that start out with “Hi Guys!”
Mimi – hours of entertainment
A little pre-recital photo session with Miss Z. I haven’t touched my big camera in forever it seems and it was really fun to take her downtown and let her play while I shot. I was terrified she would fall and mess up her outfit or rip her tights, but it was all good!
I was a backstage mom at the recital..so keeping track of 12 little dancers for about 2 hours! It was highly entertaining!
Out to dinner after the recital. Ethan using chopsticks for the first time made me giggle.
A family bike ride. We didn’t really check out the mileage on the trail when we headed out and Zooey kinda gave up so we had to turn back around. Eeek! Next time I will either make sure the mileage is appropriate for the kids’ age or I would put Zooey in the bike trailer! I was proud with how far the kids did make it.
Ice cream after the bike ride!
I will be back with another one soon! Happy Sunday!
