I can't believe today is Monday and that the weekend just flew by. We were kind of busy but nothing too crazy.
Henry had a Birthday party on Saturday, it was a roller skating party. He had so much fun! It was cool how they created these "walkers" for the kids so they could skate more easily. It's kind of funny watching your child skate, and it also brings back a lot of memories. As soon as I walked in, I flashed back to my basement circa 1986, when we would skate in circles for hours around it. I tried to tell Henry that we would skate and skate and skate and just wave to Grandfy and swing around the beams. He thought I was crazy but I it was my memory.
Here is a video of Henry skating.
Henry fell asleep on the way home from roller skating. Mary the one who really needed the nap, did not. She had fun picking on her brother while he continued to sleep on the couch.
Sunday, Charlie and Steve went skiing up at Liberty. They left pretty early so it was me and the kids for most of the day. It was a good day, Henry is very happy playing with his Star Wars guys and Mary, well, she loves the pantry and pushing her baby stroller.
After her morning nap, we headed out to the Red Store, aka Target. We needed some essentials...diapers and baby food. Of course you can't leave Target with only what you went for, it's just not possible. Got a few Birthday gifts and picked up a few other things.
After that, I high fived Charlie in the driveway and Mary and I headed to Maryland for her pictures. She fell asleep on the way over. We got there and she seemed fine but then she lost it. I'm pretty sure she ate close to entire container of puffs. We were doing anything to get her to smile. Finally, I played Elmo and she stopped and stared. It worked for a little bit.
I brought a cake thinking we could get some great pictures of her doing a cake smash....ummm yeah, no. Just cried. I even put puffs in the cake so she would dig them out, nope not even that worked. So, pretty interested to see what Helen got. She's amazing so I'm sure she got some great ones. She sneak peaked us this one.
Yeah, can you tell she was just crying in this picture? This was her last outfit of the day so it looks like she was a happy camper - lies, I tell you.
I will end the post with this picture from this morning. She was very happy and just wanted to give hugs or eat my phone, whichever we would let her get away with.
