What a fun filled weekend!

We had such a fun-filled weekend that I just have to share it with ya’ll.

It started out on Friday evening, when Max and I met up with one of my besties for coffee.  It was such a beautiful fall night, I was grateful to be able to be out an enjoy it a bit.  It was also great catching up with my friend, as it had been way too long.

Then, on Saturday morning the family and I went to Big Truck Day.  Big Truck Day is where a ton of big trucks park in a parking lot and the kiddos are able to climb inside them and play with the buttons and horns. Clifford, Curious George and a band were also there. Needless to say, Emmy had a great time! She chose to go into a fire truck, ambulance and garbage truck; other than that, she was very into Clifford. It’s funny, when I was young (and a bit still today) I was so afraid of anyone dressed up as something else, but Emmy absolutely loves it! She always has to go and hug anyone dressed up as something…which is good, I suppose as it has helped me face my fear. I, now, will not hesitate to go over and talk to a man dressed up as an oversized chipmunk, if that’s what my little girl wants me to do! 🙂

Anyway, when we got home from Big Truck Day, the fun didn’t stop.  Well, it did for a couple hours while Emmy napped…but soon after she woke up some of my other besties came over for a taco dinner party.  One them just had a baby a month ago and so I was excited to see her beautiful daughter again.  It was fun to see her and Max together, since they are only a couple months apart and will hopefully grown up being buddies. So, as you can imagine, the evening was full of great food, laughs and wonderful company.  And Emmy was a hoot and a half at the party.  There’s no doubt that that girl loves an audience, oh my goodness. ..

Then, lastly, on Sunday,  we went to the Afton Apple Orchard.  It is a fantastic orchard full of activities for the kiddos.  Emmy rode on the Moo Moo Choo Choo all by herself!  Being that it carries a dozen toddlers, that thing goes much faster than you’d expect! Plus, it doesn’t just go in circles, it takes off through the orchard…for what seemed like hours! Jeremiah and I had a bit of a hard time letting her go by herself. I think one of us was always looking down the dirt path watching for her return.  But sure enough, when she got back, the first thing she said, with a smile from ear to ear, was, “That was great!” I think she’s a bit of an adrenaline junkie…

So that was our fun-filled weekend with friends and our family.  After this weekend, I can’t help but to feel so grateful for my awesome, little family and my incredible friends. I am one lucky lady. xoxo
