Twin overload! This past weekend was the perfect mix of visiting and productivity. Sarah, my sister, braved the three hour trip with my favorite twins, Abigail and Emalyn, in tow. Then my Dad showed up the next morning. Hooray!!!
The entire weekend was one for the books. The weather was gorgeous during our beach outing (even Penny tagged along and made some new friends) and we snacked on brie (my new buy-it-for-every-event obsession) while the girls napped. A less than ideal trip to Red Robin ended happily with balloons until Granda dropped the baton (sorry, I’m fresh off of an Olympics kick) and Emalyn watched it fly into oblivion through tear filled eyes. You already know he made up for it with over a dozen balloons and an extended bed time that same night. I hope those two remember that night forever…something tells me they will.
Sunday was filled with thrift shopping where the girls made out better than anyone taking home a $5 art desk and 22 books. That is not a typo.
Big shout out goes to mi padre for hauling mulch and drywall for us while he was here – 2 projects in desperate need of completion that may never have gotten done without him (seriously, our breezeway has been without a ceiling for approximately 5 years). Thanks, Pops. :)
