What a roller coaster weekend we had. I say roller coaster "weekend" but it was really a roller coaster child. The Little Guy was nothing short of all over the place (it turns out he was getting sick). When he was happy it was great, but when he was mad it was nothing short of nightmare-ish. We stared the weekend with the annual pool party at the Keele's ward. This year I had to miss dinner, unfortunately, because I was still at work put I met up with everyone right as they were getting in the water. As usual, Julie did not want to get; so as usual, I put her in charge of pictures. Remember how the Little Guy loved the water last year (you can look at the post from the same party HERE) we even did a Mommy and Me swim class last year and it was so fun! He was just super scared this time around.
Spencer took him down the slide (which, again, he loved last year) but it was a huge bust this year.
Everything was cool in this picture and he was actually smiling as he went down but as soon as they hit the water he stared screaming. It all got even worse when Spencer slipped and they both went under.
The Carlsons were there too. Baby Everett is getting so big!
I don't like to brag, but I was a pretty cool mom. I didn't give up and we continued to stay in the water just him and I. In the end, he was having so much fun and was even trying to swim by himself. Oh yeah
In fact, he didn't want to get out even though he was shaking cold. Here he is just shaking but still wanting to play in the splash pad
He finally got cold enough to let us wrap him tightly in a towel and have him sit with Grandma for a couple of minutes.
That brings us to Friday. He is usually with me when I am getting ready for work but he ran away and in a matter of seconds had gotten a pencil and done this.
Later that night we went to Tuccanos for my birthday (yeah for birthday cards that allow us to go eat there twice a year. For my birthday and then for Spencer's)
It was probably one of the best time we have had at Tuccanos. Not only was the food delicious but we also had the best waiter and meant servers. It was such a great time.
Here is a cute video of him playing with his water
Saturday (after a much needed super cleaning of the house) I got to watch "The Hundred Foot Journey" with Julie, Kristi and Alenia. It was so GOOD! It was just a beautiful movie. We all came out of theater thinking "Wow, that was just great". Here's the trailer (as I think everyone should see it)
Sunday: The Little behaved so good in Church! It was amazing. On top of it all, as soon as he got home we went to take a nap. The trouble stared when we had to wake him up to go to the Keele's house for dinner. He was super grumpy the entire time we were. To make matters worse, on the way home, it stared raining so hard we had to pull over
He didn't like that. In fact, he didn't like it so much that once we stared going again he started freaking out and stopped breathing. Spencer pulled over to the side of the freeway and I jumped into the backseat (slamming my shoulder against the car seat) to get him breathing again. It was nightmarish. Oh our child... why does he do these things to us. He is such a joy one second and such a menace the next.
Unfortunately this year we are not going to be able to go Lagoon :( but I'll keep posting our fun times as they happen
