Last weekend Ingrid and I had girl's weekend. Brendan left on Friday morning to take Otis camping up north, so it was just us gals until Sunday afternoon! I picked her up from school and we went to McDonalds and got a happy meal. We did puzzles and played games without a little brother stealing pieces and putting them in his mouth. We went to dinner Saturday night and got frozen yogurt. Just the two of us, out on the town.
In all reality is was not as fun as I thought it would be. I never realized how much Ingrid and Otis play together. I focus so much on the bickering and hair pulling (Otis has a death grip!) that I don't realize how much they actually keep each other entertained. Ingrid would get bored really easily, she wanted me to play non-stop, where usually she can find something to do no problem. We had a good time, but we definitely missed the dudes.
The reason we didn't go with them was because Ingrid's school picnic was that Saturday. She really wanted to go, and since she just started there, I thought it would be fun to meet other kids and let her run around. It was pretty fun, they had a few bounce houses, a little station to make bracelets, a hair spray station where they sprayed you with colored hair spray, which made me sick just being a little down wind from it. There was food and popcorn and sno-cones.
She loved the race bounce house! It was a little obstacle course, going through a tunnel, over a little wall, up a ladder thing, and down the big slide. She would've stayed on that thing all afternoon but it was so fun there was a huge line all day.
Can you tell she liked it??
We had fun, but we sure did jump on the guys when they came home and gave them both big hugs and smooches. I kinda like my family!
