Weekend full of fun

Friday night started off pretty slow.  Ryan was not feeling well most of the weekend so the boys and I watched a movie and tried to keep quiet so Daddy could sleep.  On Saturday, we had Aiden's 5th birthday party.  We had a lot of fun and he loved all of his gifts.  Of course, we had to start opening everything up as soon as we got home.  After a little resting, the boys and I went to the Mullet Festival for a little bit.  We have not been in years and I don't think we have been missing anything.  For those who don't know what this festival is, Mullet is a fish.  (we did see a few mullet hairstyles around which I thought had gone out of style a while ago.)  The boys did get to ride a few rides so that made them very happy.

                                       Aiden loved the sweet corn.  Can you tell?

After the Mullet Festival, we decided to eat at Wendy's and guess who we saw??? Yeah... I had to ask to.  It's Joe Nichols (Country singer).  He was the singer for Saturday night's concert.  He was very nice and does have a great voice.  (he sang Happy Birthday to a girl standing in line).  Aiden could have cared less about him.  He was more interested in the cop that was his escort.  Aiden talked his ear off for about 5 minutes but he did learn everything he could about him. (you can actually see him behind Joe Nichols in the gray hoodie and the cop is now bent down talking to him).
 So... do you see a difference in Ethan??

He is the big boy that had his first sleep over on Saturday night at a friend's house.  He did great! We didn't even get a call at bedtime to pick him up.  Then, he came home on Sunday and poured himself a big glass of  milk all by himself!  This may not seem like a big milestone to most folks but this is a first and I am so very proud.  My boys still ask us if they can go to the bathroom at our house.  Is this normal???  I am thinking not but we are trying to get them to be a little more independent these days and this is a first big step towards the right direction.
On Sunday, we went to church and then off to another birthday party at Fat Daddy's.  We are becoming regulars at this place and will visit again this coming Saturday.  I have about reached my max of the arcades but the boys love it.

Sunday night, the boys and I stayed up late and watch Home Alone 2.  They think these movies are hilarious.  I love to sit and listen to them laugh. We stayed up way past our bedtime and now I am exhausted and having a hard time keeping my eyes open.  I hope they are doing a better job of concentrating at school then I am at work.
