Another great weekend!! It all started Friday when Waylon and I sent the kids to school and mulched the yard together. It was kind of fun to do something different and active together... for about 2 hours.... then I was over it! :-) We finished up around 3:00 and since the kids had an event at school that night at 6:00, we spent some time down at the pool together after we were done. It was nice (and very strange) to have a little bit of down time!
At 5:45, we took off to the kids' school for a 'camp out'. They had tons of food and lots of activities including games for families to do together and even a storyteller (a parent volunteer), s'mores and a pie eating contest good for one free week of tuition - I tried to get Waylon to participate in that one but we were too slow on the uptake and other families volunteered first. :-) It's okay though - it wouldn't have been a fair fight if Waylon was in the running. :-) It was really nice to get to know some of the parents a little more and the kids had a blast. We ended up staying until almost 8:30 cause it was so much fun!

Here is the storytime - I told Noah to go sit a little closer so he could hear and this is where he ended up! :-) Kylie had to join him of course.
Saturday was a fun day but I took no pictures if you can believe it! We had a lazy morning and then went down to the pool and spent the rest of the morning there as a family. Kylie had her first Mommy and Me swim lesson (Noah's start this Wednesday). It was really good and I think she is really going to enjoy it! We stayed for a while and the kids took a pretty late nap. I went back down to the pool after we got them to bed - maybe a little too much sun time for me. Woops!
After naps, we loaded up to hit BJs for some necessities. We decided to head out to the Crossroads area and then hit our old favorite Mexican place for dinner. We called Janet and Frank to see if they wanted to meet us for dinner last minute and luckily they were available!! Noah and Kylie were both so excited to see Maddie and Mason!! They actually behaved fairly well at dinner - or well, Frank might have gotten the brunt of the craziness. :-) After dinner, they ran around outside of the restaurant for a while and Kylie decided to sit in a puddle and even put her hair in it!! :-) We just took off her skirt on the way home cause it was soaked! The drive home was so fun and silly. We were all dancing and singing to the music on the radio. It was such a fun moment as a family. I had promised popsicles at dinner so we had those when we got home at 8:30 - another late night!
Today was super fun, too! Father's Day!! I had been planning a surprise for Waylon and it was almost as much of a surprise for the kids. I didn't tell them cause I didn't want Noah to spoil the surprise. I had planned to start the morning a little earlier with the kids but they both slept until 7:30 so we got a little late start but it worked out. Kylie woke up on her own and I took her in to wake up Noah. He looked at me like I was crazy and closed his eyes again. Then Kylie got right up in his face and said, 'Mooorning!!!' It was so cute. Then I told him what we were going to do and his eyes popped open.
We jumped in the car, jammies and no shoes, and took off down to Dunkin Donuts. Noah thought it was so funny that we were going in our PJs. :-) As we were leaving, Waylon texted me and asked if he could get up - he knew I was planning something. I told him to get showered and get back in bed! :-) We got some donuts and coffee and came back home to bring him breakfast in bed. The kids were so excited about eating in our bed. We now have chocolate in our bed but that's okay. :-)
After presents and cards, we kicked him out to go play golf with Jason! I got a tee time for him at a course in Pittsboro (on a recommendation from a coworker who plays all the time). I think he enjoyed getting out and playing. After he left, we talked to Grammy and Papa for a while on Skype - the kids had fun showing off for them as always. They like to pull out all their toys and show it to them - like they've never seen them before! :-) Today is also Grammy and Papa's 40th anniversary! Wow.
While the guys were out playing golf, Megan and Ryan came over to go to the pool. The kids had a blast but it's always busy trying to keep up with both of them on my own! :-)
After naps, we got cleaned up and waited for Daddy to get home so we could take off to Nana and Grandad's house to celebrate Father's Day with them and Andrea, Sean and Savananh. Always fun times!

Notice Kylie's dress - my parents got this for her when they vacationed in Italy!
