I am also doing this recap to share these nifty car trays I made last year for my kids. They are able to eat on them in the car, draw, color, and even line up cars with these trays. They also have names and hand prints, yay for customizing! We all squeezed into Dale’s new car because it is the shiny new toy and we all want a turn in it. The kids liked all being together. In the gold ‘ole mini van all three cannot sit next to each other.
The big finish for this aquarium is this under water experience. You get to walk through countless glass tunnels with different climates of aquatic life. There is sharks, sea turtles, Nemo’s (no not clown fish, Nemo’s), they swim around, over, across, and behind you. The tanks are massive, and it appears to go on forever. All with natural plants, coral, rocks, and greenery for their fishes climate. . It is all magical to see and be under.
|Love this picture of Dale and Gavin|
I was there too. Whenever we go anywhere it looks like Dale is the hands on parent and I am never present. I am, I snap some pictures and then enjoy the time with my kids. Dale never thinks to pick up the slack and take a few of me. I had to shove the camera in his hand and direct him to take some of me. Proof that I am a Mom, am there, and have fun too.

After our fun weekend, we got the kids in the car and they proceeded to pass out for three hours. There was snoring and drool happening. I woke up a little embarrassed when everyone in the car was staring at my drool dripping mouth. Kidding, I am a lady who sleeps ‘ala sleeping beauty with my hair fanned out, and my hands clasping flowers on my chest. Like all ladies do. My kids, it sounded like Chewbacca was singing and a dog had his head out of the window with his lips and tongue flapping in the wind. My little angels, sleeping like a baby. They have officially crossed over into loud, no longer cute sleeping. They are messy, loud, and adorably exhausted.

That is our weekend recap. Not much DIY, unless you count that I did my own makeup. I have probably stained more wood then put on full face makeup. I won’t entertain you with the story of me thinking I could wear heels to the wedding. I attempted them, and looked like what I assume a penguin in heels would walk like. I am sure the stereotypical guy in heel walk is what I had going on. I am a flats, converse, or flip flops kind of chick. I wore flats with my dress, and rocked it thank you very much. My dress was feminine and had flowers on it, I am plenty of fancy without heels. In fact I think more fancy without heels, it would have been a mess with them.
|The boys got to work at the art table right when we got home.|
We got home, and I was a tornado of activity. I had everything un packed, load of laundry in the washer, and Nora was finishing up some homework within an hour of getting home. I knew Monday was coming and I needed to get it together. It is real DIY time now. I have a ton of projects we are working on, and lots of stuff going on with this blog behind the scenes. Hopefully soon things will be able to be revealed!
What did you do over the weekend? Anyone else obsessed with babies? And most importantly, are heels actually walk able? I did not see it possible, but some manage, some how. What am I doing wrong?
