Friday night, the kids and I headed out to dinner and ice cream with a friend. We hit up our usual Chilis and then headed to Destin Commons to play and have an evening treat. Izzy no longer likes to sit on the bench and watch the kids play. She wants to scoot herself all over the playground like a big girl. She waves and greets all of the watching parents and then takes off on another adventure. The kids are great with her and helped her on the slide or through the tunnels. She was in big girl Heaven!
Saturday, was a gorgeous day! Sunny with a nice breeze. Izzy and I sat outside on a blanket while Daddy planted. Yep, that is what he does on a daily basis. Our yard is a work in progress but by the time he is done with it, he is the envy of the neighborhood. Neighbors stop him all the time about his yard and it makes him one proud Man! Whatever makes him happy, right?? I am just happy that I don't have to do it.
We also had a tea party (Thanks- Steph for the set!) Izzy is really getting into pretend play. It is fun to watch her little imagination come alive.
Owen was nice enough to let Izzy borrow his floaty. Mommy went cheap and Izzy kept tipping over in the one we brought. Lesson learned...
We, of course, had to get everyone lathered up with sunscreen. Izzy was looking spiffy after hers was applied. She has to get sunscreen from the top of her head to her little toes. Sister is fair skinned with red hair so we don't take any chances.
I love weekends like this... family, sun and lots of fun!
*Let us not forget what Memorial day is truely about... we are so thankful for all of our soliders who have served and are serving our Country.*
