Catch up time
Sorry for the delay in blogging. We had a crazy busy weekend!!! The bad news is Gavin is off the wagon with potty training. He has had many peepee accidents after going 5 or 6 days straight with out one!!! Bummer!
Saturday, Patrick was post-call and also had interviews for the new class coming next year. he got out, slept for about 2 hours, then we were off to a friends' birthday/costume party. Sophia just turned three and has some of her closest friends come celebrate...check out the cool outfits Aunt Peggy and Uncle Hank got our kids!!! And the coolest part was Evelyn was Minnie Mouse and GiGi (Sophia's little sister) was the girl born on the same day as Evie right next door. Too cute they were!
Sunday, Patrick was on call again - but actually got to come home for a good bit of the day. We had breakfast, cleaned, shopped and did yard work. Our lawn mower finally bit the dust so we had to borrow a neighbors to finish. He finally did get called in during the afternoon. And now since Evelyn is only down to one nap (usually 3-4 hours) I have lots of free time to chill with Gavin. So we emptied out the pumpkins so we could carve them on Monday when Daddy got home!
Monday we went to the zoo with Ashli, Nathan and Carter; Cara and Hailey; and Becca, Sophia and GiGi. It was chilly (you'd think it was the next coming of the ice age by the way I dressed my kids), but there was no wind and the sun was out so it was great! We ended up staying for almost 4 hours!!! The animals were all out and having fun - especially the penguins who put on a great show for us. It was like a movie where they would swim by super fast and jump/dive out of the water and spin in the air and land back in the water. It was so cool! I have never seen them do that before! The kids got a kick out of it - and I think the moms did too!!! The tiger was out and trotting right next to the glass and the other animals were all very active as well. Very fun! When we came back, Evie slept and Patrick, Gavin and I carved pumpkins. Patrick and I made drawings first and Gavin picked which ones he liked best and wanted us to make. Then he decided to draw some himself. He made one happy face and one sad - it was so good! Overall a great extended weekend with as much time as possible with Dad!
