O-what a weekend it was! I think I finally understand why my dad always said he needed to "go back to work to rest up!"
Saturday was a trek to the library for Toddler Story time with "Mr. Jim" (chances are good that Mr. Jim is a long lost cousin of Mr. Rogers...). The kids seemed entertained by the singing and dancing - so hopefully we can partake in the remaining 3 sessions. If you are in the Fort Worth area and have a toddler - you should totally plan to join us! http://fortworthtexas.gov/library/info/default.aspx?id=94986
Happy Mother's Day!
I still find it unbelievable that I am a mom...harder yet to believe that I'm the mom to TWO amazing kiddos. I found myself today just thinking how lucky I am that Brianne and Bryce are mine - love them sooo much! And while being a mom is the hardest job in the world - I'm convinced it's also the BEST job in the world. While the mountains of laundry and never ending pile-up of dishes and chores could drag us mom's down - we don't let it. We push thru the clothes folding and counter cleaning and focus on the good stuff: quality time with the kiddos. Seeing Brianne learn new things, hearing Bryce giggle, watching the two of them play together (which lately has become fighting over toys....) - that is the kind of good stuff that I can't get enough of.
The good stuff for today was lots of family fun. Delicious french toast for breakfast - compliments of the hubby. Opening a belated b-day gift created tons of entertainment!
Warning: Disregard the dog barking away during this entire video clip....anyone want a pug? :)
Rockin' Elmo is great! :) Thank you Auntie Michelle and Uncle Mike!!
Then checking out Dog Agility World Championships - those dogs (and doggie owners!) had serious skillz! Brianne LOVED watching the dogs zig and zag and leap around the arena.

|Yes - that sign really says "Therapeutic Canine Massage" - and that dog is enjoying such a thing. Craziness....but after seeing the hard work of these dogs - I'd say they deserve this!|
Relaxed around the house for the afternoon - and the kids 'helped' fold the laundry.
Dinner was a picnic at a local park. Tried out our new bubble machine and enjoyed lots of laughs on the swings.
So yes....I do believe it's now time to go back to work so I can rest up!
