i went home this weekend. it was a great trip. we were celebrating dakota’s birthday and mother’s day. i got in on friday night and i got to see aaron and jessie for a bit after they got home from the rodeo. the riverfest put on the rodeo and apparently it was terrible. the bulls just weren’t bucking.
saturday morning mom and i headed to imagine that! the best toy store ever. we got dakota his birthday presents. i got him a little hand puppet-hard hat harry. he’s pretty awesome. the boys came over right as we got home and we played out on the new deck and shot dad’s new pellet gun. (although it looks more like a sniper rifle!) just like when we were kids, i’m still the best shot. we mutilated a couple paper targets and a diet dr. pepper can. it was fun! that night we headed over to adam and abbe’s for dakota’s 4th birthday party. it was john deere themed and we had a great time! abbe made yummy quesadillas and a tractor cake. we played t-ball and the little boys pushed their new plastic mowers around in the front yard. (i was banned from hitting the ball after i hit it onto the next door neighbor’s roof. oops!) later, we were treated to a dance session to the song “move it!” from madagascar by the boys. they are so cute!
sunday we headed to church in the morning and had lunch at mom and dad’s for mother’s day. everyone was over and we had some good family hang out time. we had to watch the “bat video” because jessie had never seen it. (if you don’t know what the bat video is, i’m sorry-it’s hilarious!!) we left a little late for the airport and i was worried i wouldn’t make it. i’ve always wanted to run through the airport, but i don’t really want to be late for my flight. i was afraid my bag wouldn’t make it, but it did and all is well.
