Weekend Update - Fun in the Sun

Last weekend, we did nothing on Friday despite my best efforts.  I was just beat.  Plus, I knew we had a busy weekend ahead of us.  On Saturday, Little Miss and I woke up early and went to Target for some birthday presents.  Then, we went to her friend's birthday for some fun facepainting and general 6-year-old chaos.  Super hot and super crazy.  Lots of sugar.  Afterwards, I promised her we could go to the toy story to use a gift card.  She carefully made her choices, and we walked out with Operation, a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD, a Winx club doll and something else that I keep forgetting.  She is very good at making decisions when faced with "you can get all of this or one of this" or "you can get this but then we need to put some items back".  I just have to stop her from buying things she already has.

On Sunday, we went to the water park for another birthday party.  Little Miss had fun with her friends, but she mostly loved the water slide.  I was shocked.  She doesn't swim, but she loves the speed and water.  As soon as we got there, the big bucket dumped all over her and the water feature.  Once she got over the shock, she was all over.  I didn't bring her flotation device hoping the peer pressure would encourage her to swim more.  It mostly worked.  

So, the weekend was a lot of fun but exhausting.  I fell asleep watching our Sunday night show as a matter of fact, but it was worth it because Little Miss had a smile on her face the entire weekend.

Baby stayed home with Husband, and I believe they had a lovely time as well, just not as much fun as a water park.
