Knowing that things would be getting very busy with the arrival of a new baby, we tried to spend some days with Bryson and Ashlyn.
Both kids have become pros at making countdown chains for any big event in our lives so the arrival of Mimi, Papi, and a brother needed chains:
I got to spend an evening celebrating our baby with the girls from my small group:
We spent our last weekend taking each kid out for a fun activity. Bryson and Zane went to eat dinner, then went to the races:
They were on their way home and happened to be passing the Mudcats Stadium just as the Mudcats were shooting off fireworks for 4th of July weekend. Zane pulled over, got out some chairs, and they enjoyed a fireworks show:
While the boys were at the races, Ashlyn picked Zaxby's for our dinner:
Ashlyn has been wanting frozen yogurt for a long time so that was our next surprise in our evening:
Shopping is always fun for girls so we also made a stop so Ashlyn could spend some of her piggy bank money on whatever she wanted. She was very proud of everything she bought:
Finally, we rented a movie and headed home to have fun with her new play-doh and play some Connect 4.
I think both kids really enjoyed their special evenings and I know Zane and I loved getting to spend some quality time with the kids!!
