This weekend we went to something called the Frisco Fest where we live. They have it every August and it's kind of like a mini fair that takes place downtown. There are lots of activities for children, live music, food, and merchant booths...and I was surprised how much bigger and better it was this year. We walked there Saturday morning and did a round, it was a little warm so we came back home. After dinner, we normally always take a walk, and we decided to do another round and I am so glad we did. It was much cooler and we were able to enjoy the sights. As we were heading back to come home, we happened upon a pony corral, and I asked Ella if she wanted to ride a pony. Well, she did, and she LOVED it. We kind of had a mini-meltdown when we had to leave. Her pony's name was Banjo.
We had a full day Saturday with two trips to the Frisco Fest, a side walk coloring extravaganza, and a trip to the Academy that just opened in our area. Wes was really happy to hear we were getting an Academy. I have a feeling that it will become one of our weekend outings.
I have to share a funny from Ella. A couple weeks ago, she scratched her finger doing something, and ran to me crying that she had a boo-boo. So, of course I kissed it to make it better and this was our conversation
Ella - "Mama, I need a headband"
Me - "A headband?, I don't think a headband will make it feel better"
Ella - "Yes, Mama!!! I NEED a headband!!!"
I'm a little puzzled at this point, so I go to the medicine cabinet and pull out a band-aid.
Ella - "YES, YES, YES, a headband!!!"
Me - "Ooookkkkk, a headband" with a big smile on my face I wrapped her finger in a band-aid
About 5 minutes later Ella came to me and said "Mama, thank you so much for the headband, I feel sooooo much better!!"
GOTTA LOVE IT!!!
Yesterday as I was cooking dinner, I had just finished feeding the twins and as "dessert" I usually give them pudding or yogurt....it also buys me a few minutes because they love "eating" with their spoons and love pudding or yogurt. Not long after I got them all set up, I hear "Ahhhhh, ahhhh, ahhhh!!!" from Molly (yep, by now I can decipher the crying and whining). So I go to check on them and I find the problem. Ruby has decided she would eat BOTH bowls of dessert. This is becoming a common problem. So, I think I will be separating them from now on. : )
Hope you have a wonderful LONG weekend!
Keep the Faith,
