First off, Happy Birthday to Alan! We love you so much and hope you have a great day!!
I have fallen off the blogging bandwagon, ya'll. I have just lost all creativeness when it comes to trying to figure out a topic to write on, so I've just come to blogging monthly updates on Riley and a Sunday Social here and there. That's not enough in my opinion. I know most of our blog is our family and I'm sure(hope) ya'll are interested in seeing things about the girls about about things we are doing around this crazy animal farm. I will do better. Meanwhile, here's a mish mash of what's been going on lately..
-We took the girls to a nearby theme park a few weeks ago. It was a seriously spur of the moment decision as we were going to take them to a local water park but the more we talked and looked at the prices/hours, we ended up there. We wanted an all day event to get everyone out of the house and we wanted water. We researched and found the ticket prices to the theme park were more than half off(if bought online) starting at 4pm. Madison and Riley would be free. They were open until 10pm with the water park open until 7pm. 3 hours in the water park and then 3 hours in the theme park. We found out that Madison was big enough to ride about 10 rides so we went with that option. We got there right at 4 and headed straight to the waterpark.
-We went on our first date night since Riley has been born. We went 2 weeks ago and it was really nice. We went to Copper River and it was pretty good. After that, we went to Krispy Kreme for coffees and donuts. We have another one planned next weekend and I'm excited already. It's so nice to take out a few hours and enjoy just being the couple that we started out as. I don't even think we talked about the girls a whole lot. We did talk a lot though!
-Madison goes back to preschool in a couple of weeks. Trying to get her prepared with clothes, shoes, supplies and a backpack. Do you realize how hard it is to find a preschool sized backpack? We lucked up and found some markers today that are on her supply list. The school supply shelves are about empty.
-We are counting down the days until our vacation in a few weeks. We thought a late Summer vacay was a good idea and now we are kicking ourselves :) It's getting closer though!
