week and weekend wrap-up

We've had a great week and weekend.  Earlier this week my in-laws were passing through and brought Morgan this:

(By the way, doesn't her smile look a lot like this one?)  She loves "motorcycles" (as she calls them) and finally has her own. :)

Also this week was our spring game.  I didn't realize how much I missed football until we were on our way to the stadium.  I got all giddy and nervous like I do on Friday nights. 

DK in coach mode.

Happy to see her daddy after the game.

Talking to Uncle T during the game. 

I wish I could say she sat there and watched the whole time.  She did the complete opposite 95% of the time we were there.  Thank God my in-laws were there, too.  When we're all together, we basically take turns entertaining her in our own little ways.

Also this week my little one and I had dinner out twice -- just the two of us.  HUGE.  Danny and I usually don't go out to dinner with her because...well, she's two.  And it usually is too stressful, so we just skip it (or wait until we have a sitter).  And I absolutely don't take her to eat when it's just me.  However, it went a lot better than expected.  :)  Maybe it had something to do with the fact that we didn't have to wait long for our food (went to a deli both times).  We have to try it again soon.:-)

This weekend we initially had a full schedule -- playdate, baby shower, birthday party, and date night.  Some friends from work and I were going to get our little ones together Saturday morning but decided to cancel since rain was in the forecast (though it never rained).  We went to a birthday party later that day, though.  I didn't get to attend the baby shower unfortunately.  It was at the same time as the birthday party and about an hour away. I couldn't resist taking Morgan to the party.  I knew she would have a blast.

The birthday girl, Kelsey!

It was a luau/pool party.  The weather wasn't hot like expected, so a lot of the kids skipped the water play.

These two crazy kids didn't mind, though, and got in the pool anyway.  They had a blast, so I guess that's all that matters.  That's Kelsey's big sister, Kendall.

After the party Saturday, Morgan went over to play with her friend KJ while DK and I had date night.  She and KJ love each other, so they had a blast.  My friend Martha was baking brownies, and she said Morgan walked into the kitchen and said, "I smell 'cupcakes!'"  She is definitely my girl! :) 

DK and I went to see Jumping the Broom and had dinner at a local seafood restaurant.  Are we the only ones that base date night plans on whatever Groupon, Living Social, etc. deals we have?  Between the two of us, we have movie tickets, numerous restaurants, ice cream, yogurt, and whatever else we see that works for us.  We'll probably never pay full price for date night again!

We've been playing a lot of Little People this weekend, too.  I was in the toy section recently and saw this bus (which happened to be from the Little People line) and said, "Gotta have it."  Morgan LOVES looking at buses every morning and points out every one (and I mean every one.)  I ask her where the buses are going, and she'll tell me they're "taking the kids to school."  Sometimes the buses are "going to Miami."  Yep.  The local school buses go to Miami some mornings.

Turns out she loves Little People. Lots if imaginary play.  You should hear the conversation she has with them.  I've seen LP toys a lot but never thought about getting any (Morgan's more into drums, guitars, books, and puzzles).  She likes them so much she even remembers their names.  I'm a sucker for it all so I went back and got her the Little People house - ha!

I had a few other things to blog about but my mind keeps wondering back to all the things I need to do today.  So it'll have to wait 'til later.  Have a great week!
