I've never known any trouble that an hour's reading didn't assuage.

Weekend Update - Hot Hot Hot
Last Thursday, Little Miss spent the night with my family - Mom, Dad, Sister and Nephew. She thinks her older cousin is the best thing since sliced bread. Today, she announced that he knows EVERYTHING. Plus, he's the nicest because he made her breakfast (which was quite impressive even if it was cereal), got her a red popsicle, and gave her a Silly Bandz. At dinner, she wanted an orange popsicle because that's what he likes best.
This has to be some of the hottest weather I can remember. Maybe not the hottest, but it's been right up there. So, it was perfect timing that Little Miss was invited to a birthday party at the water park. On Saturday, she was so excited that she voluntarily crawled into bed for a very early nap and was all ready to go to the party. It was so cute to see all the classmates see each other outside of school. They mostly played independently, but they would occasionally play with each other in between playing with their parents or eating pizza or cupcakes. The cupcakes were absolutely adorable, and Little Miss ate hers with absolute enthusiasm. It was embarrassing, but at least she enjoyed herself. After, we went home with a goody bag (a cute little shovel and pail set with a beach ball, bubbles, and other items inside) and giant monkey balloon. Another note: I was thinking of getting a pinata for Little Miss's birthday. I no longer think that's a good idea. Toddlers and a stick are a bad combination. Plus, the pinata at the party NEVER BROKE. The dad finally just ripped it open and flung the candy everywhere. Below is video of Little Miss giving it a whack.
On Sunday, we mostly ran errands. We needed a new suitcase so hit up the mall. Then, we went to the toy store, the bookstore and the baby clothes store where Little Miss got new rain boots. I'm sure I'll have pictures of those considering she wears rain boots 4 out of every 7 days.
Very busy weekend, but it was fun. We have some busy times coming up so it's nice to see Little Miss being cooperative or at least being able to communicate why she isn't happy. I'd like some down time now but tomorrow is Monday so back to the crazy grindstone.
