It was my baby sister Emily’s “makeshift” bachelorette party yesterday. Emily, Sarah, our Mom and myself created some masterpieces at the Mad Potter, got pedicures at Mitchell’s, had a brief shopping interlude, and then dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. One sister (Sarah) is carting around a Zofran pump to ease her extreme nausea gravidarum (morning? sickness) – and the other sister (me) has been mentally weatherbeaten over the past year. You should have gotten married when you were 21, Emily. Your sisters were a lot more “fun” back then!
Not to say we didn’t have fun yesterday!! I had an awesome time, and I hope you did too, Femily!
Meanwhile, William and Nora were holding down the fort.
Papa came over for a little bit and then took the big kids swimming.
Today was equally as busy! We celebrated Oma’s birthday with brunch this morning. Happy Birthday, Oma! We love you!
We came back home, and hung out for a little while.
And then I took Gavin and Greta to the swim club for a late afternoon swim and pizza. I LOVE that Gavin placed our pizza order under the name of “Batman”. When it was ready they called over the loud speaker, “Batman? Your order is ready.” We couldn’t stop laughing!! We shared our pizza crust with THREE sparrows!
Once back home Nora and I went on an evening walk. We did almost 2 miles until Nora put in an urgent request to come home. Daddy had to come get us in the car as we were a little over a mile away from home. She wanted the rest of her order that I forgot to bring with me.
The big long busy weekend continues on into tomorrow – William and Sophie are taking Gavin and Greta to King’s Island!! Nora and I wish we could come! 🙂
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance. (Jude 1:2)
