Both kiddo and adult fun this weekend

Both the kids and mom/dad had fun this weekend. Saturday Landon turned one and the weather couldn't have been more perfect! The kids had a great time at his party.

Then we had lots of fun playing outside till grandma came for a night of babysitting. They ate pizza, played with lots of bubbles, threw sticks in the creek, swung on the swing....had a great time while mom and dad went to dinner and a hockey game!

Kim and Gary have a great tradition of getting us hockey tickets each year and this was a game to get into the playoffs! They were down 1-0 going into the 3rd and came back! However, they needed 2 other teams to lose and they didn't - no playoffs :(

Sunday was rainy so we hit Easton for some shopping and chipotle. My dad is out town this week (no sitting the kids) so he stopped by for some kid time. After dinner and an ice cream cone, we painted, baths and they are snoozing. Busy weekend!

I use this blog so family can see what's going on with the kids but to also rind myself what the kids are into and doing....semi baby book till I can record it (which all my friends know my kid books still aren't printed but just sitting on my laptop rrrr). Heres a few things that come to mind:

Jack 2.5 years:
He doesn't say "doing" he says "do-ding". Example: Wiley what are you do-ding? Or Stop do-ding that daddy. So cute.
Sings more songs: the theme song to caillou (he's obsessed), old Macdonald had a farm, 10 little monkeyed jumping on the bed, even sang the "nah nah nah" song when the white sox hit a home run while watching a game!
He likes money and says he needs to buy does he know money?
Sits in his bed and reads books to himself
Actually will count things on a page to 5 (though he counts much higher)
Will say whatever letter you point to
Claims his favorite letter is K

Riley 13 months:
Obsessed with the "is your momma a llama" and "brown bear" book. Says ba on the lamb page and moo on the cow page!
Does this weird clear her throat thing repeatedly...I think she likes the way it feels
Is really digging sesame street!
Says "wow"
Loves to flop onto pillows
Loves to play peak a boo to you (hide her face)
Puts her hand up and squeals bc she wants to hold your hand while walking.
Sits in chairs (big girl ones)
Carries her bookbag while walking to class.

Southern road trip

Last Thursday we headed south for my cousin Jessica's wedding in Savannah! I love that place so was looking forward to it but the drive down wasn't very fun!! In WV I said "did you grabbed our clothes for the wedding?" whoops! they were hanging in the doorway..strike 1. About 1 hour later we were stuck in 2.5 hours at a standstill in a blizzard...strike 2. Finally we get to north Charlotte, NC at 11:15pm, we stop at 5 hotels-booked! We go to the next exit...all booked! Strike 3! Well we decide to go to south Charlotte and what do you accident at 11:45 -standstill for 30 mins! Strike 4....ya that's not even possible. We all have to exit and thank goodness a nice hotel that's NOT booked is there :)

But after that, the rest of the trip was wonderful!!! The rehersal dinner friday night was at the marina on the island my grandparents and aunt live on. Was very nice. They even had a private trolly from downtown savannah to the venue so jack got to ride it (Riley and I drove ;). After hitting the mall on Saturday we had a super time at the wedding...was gorgeous!

Sunday we went to the GA railway museum then drive 1 hour to Hilton head. The condo was perfect! First flood, patio, 2 bedrooms, In a great gated community on the beach with a wonderful family friendly pool. We had bikes delivered to the condo so didn't need the car at all - we biked everywhere! So much fun. We are totally going back!!!
