Ugh, Monday...getting up this morning was TOUGH. Not just for me, but for Little Miss. At first, I thought I was just tired because Littlest Miss has recently been sneaking downstairs, crawling into bed and velcroing herself to momma all night. Sleeping on 3 inches of bed means little or no sleep for this momma.
But when I had to wake Little Miss up at 7:45 this morning and was largely unsuccessful (i.e. I carried her all the way downstairs and got her fully dressed before she even started to stir) I knew I couldn't blame my exhaustion fully on the Velcro baby. At the very least, the weekend activities must have had something to do with it.
And alas, with Loli and Pop coming up for the weekend, we were definitely always on the go, which meant lots of fun...
1. Saturday Morning
After gymnastics, we headed to our favorite Saturday morning activities -- the splash pad, park, farmers market, and lunch at Twisted Root. Everyone had a blast, even though it was hot and shade was coveted.

2. Productive Afternoon
After getting home, everyone kind of did their own thing. Littlest Miss napped. Little Miss and Loli got prettied up.
And Pops and the Husband worked on the house.
While us girls lounged around and supervised.
3. Birthday Party Fun
One of our friend's daughter turned 2 so we headed to their house for a low-key birthday party. Given that its August in Dallas, some pool time was much appreciated.
4. Puppy Love and Lounging
After the party, we headed back to our house and just relaxed for a bit just the five of us (and Wrigley) before heading to another neighbors house for a bit.
5. Breakfast Treats
Loli surprised us all with yummy breakfast goodies Sunday morning. She spoils us all so much. And we cannot thank her enough!
6. Cow, cows, and more cows
After breakfast, we headed to church and then to the Feedstore at lunch. A friend recently told me that if you ask them for scraps, they'll give you food to feed the cows. What no one told me was how smart the cows are -- as soon as they saw the white bucket, they came running. Seriously. Check it out:
And once they got to us, all they wanted was the food:
Not only was feeding the cows a great experience for the girls, but it was a great way to end our weekend with Loli and Pop.
Thanks for visiting. We love you and miss you and wish we could see you more!
