Summer Fun Has Begun!
My parents stayed the night on Sunday & spent part of the day with us on Monday. My Mom & I took the kids to Target in the morning for their promised oatmeals - they were all (especially Addison) not in a great mood that day & it wasn't a very pleasant trip. I was quite dad when my dad surprised us & showed up at the store & took Addison with him to look around.
The kids were also exhausted so we went back home, put the youngest down for their naps & Addison into rest time & my mom & I went out to the mall. Mom deemed it my birthday outing & bought me some sweet new necklaces, & (more) coffee with a key lime tart at Barnes & Noble (where we ran into Erin & her family!).
She also bought me a gorgeous maxi dress. Seriously beautiful. I also bought myself a new shirt - the same one my mom was wearing while we were shopping, actually, I love it!
Doesn't my mom look fabulous?
My parents left around 2:30 & Addison fell asleep a short time later. I think a lot of her bad mood was tiredness. Of course, then she wouldn't fall asleep until 11:30 last night.
Today, she was miss grumpy off & on again, but, I kept her awake & the kids & I all even went to the pool this afternoon. It was quite nice!
I finally put Addison to bed around...6:00. She was so beat that she fell asleep within minutes. Unfortunately, I think I made a little too much noise & she woke up 2 hours later. It's now almost 11 & she's wide awake again.
