The Weekend of We Did Not...

This weekend we had a relatively quiet weekend. Finally. So we took the time to do a few things that we will never admit to. For instance,

We did not put our son down for a nap and then proceed to play with his remote control truck for over an hour!!

We did not allow our son to swim in his underwear, teach him how to shoot a water gun and then let him shamelessly spray the dogs (who were good sports) over and over and over!!

We did not get ready for bed Saturday night and then at 9 pm decide we needed ice cream so changed back into our regular clothes and head out to the local ice cream hangout until 10 at night, shamelessly eating banana splits and waffle cones!!

We did not stay out with Daniel's Aunt Amber, Uncle Stephen and Parker until past bedtime Sunday and then on the way home go by McDonalds and order. I would never order a large Dr. Pepper that time of night (I really wouldn't but I was craving it), and then order a large sweet tea for Troy and apple juice and apple dippers for Daniel. Then proceed to stay up until 11 PM.

We did not (Daniel and I) take repeated photos our ourselves and laugh like crazy each time...

And here's the proof...

LOL! Love the photos... put a smile on my face. I was just thinking before I came here that I hadn't had a post to read from Rachel in a little bit. I'm glad I saw this!

Goofy times with mom and dad will surely be a lifetime memory!! Sometimes it isn't WHAT you do - it's how it's done :)

Your we did not go get ice cream, led me to go get ice cream last night. I mean, I didn't, but we did. :-) Love the self portraits - those are way too cute!

Aww! I love it! Your post made me smile... the pictures are too cute and I love the picture of Daniel with the big smile while holding his apple dippers! So precious! You guys are such a fun family, I always love reading your posts!

Jill said...

I love it! Very sweet!! I've taken to letting M swim in her school clothes after we get home to save changing into a bathing suit and then right into PJs. Cutting out the middle man, so to speak. Maybe I should just strip her down though...that makes more sense!

Too funny! You all sound just like us...going out before bed (or even past bedtime) to get a snack and ordering large dr. pepper/sweet tea late at night! I love it! I hope you all are doing well! Great pics, too!

Vicki said...

Good for you! I'm glad you "did not" have a great time not doing all those things! Fun, fun, fun!!! Way to live a little!
