So I mentioned last week that I was crossing my fingers to get out of town. We didn’t make it to the original destination but we still got to go on an adventure! It worked out anyways because Friday turned into crazy town and nothing went to plan. Hayley is teething big time. Plus we’ve been fighting off some sort or sickness since Christmas. In the last few days she got really fussy and really stuffy. I panicked and took her to the doctor. I don’t know what it is about this winter but I am especially paranoid about the girls getting sick. I’ve seen so many horror stories about babes going from zero to hospital real quick.
Hayley was a trooper. The doc thought it was just the teeth making her sick. As long as there is no fever we are all good. I had to hurry and get home because Taylor and I went to Glowga at one of our local studios. It was so amazing and fun! I am working on a post all about Glowga and why you should do it once a month. It put me in the mood to start the hunt for Rylee’s birthday decor. Guess what she wants….wait for it….
SCARY RAINBOW PARTY
She came up with that all on her own. We haven’t even watched Coraline (I don’t even know if there are rainbows I’ve just heard its creepy AF). So here is what I’m thinking…
With some appearances from the spider in Charlotte’s Web.
I’m trying to convince her to have it be a “scary UNICORN party”. I found some cute rainbow/unicorn inspo. PS planning parties is the highlight of my year. Now that I am in my own house bring on all the parties.
We spent most of Saturday sleeping it off. It was the last basketball game for us Saturday morning which meant Rylee took car naps. Only her afternoon car nap had her sleeping until 7:00 PM. I usually don’t let her nap that long but we’ve been so off whack in the sleep department I let it slide. Baby Hayley’s been fighting the nap train too so I enjoyed the quiet evening.
MMR went fishing Saturday so Sunday morning when Rylee woke up she was so excited to hang out with Daddy. Especially because he designs her outfits. We’ve come up with a solution for her wanting to put stickers and color everywhere. Take a paper bag and make a shirt. I cannot take credit for this, it was 1000% MMR. I really lucked out with him ; ).
I’m showing you two pictures of Rylee in her cool outfit, only to prove we can take photos not shouting.
Then finally we left to head out to get some fresh air. I’m not going to lie I miss living far away. Don’t get me wrong I love being here close to family and friends but we use to do so much exploring. Or we would make our trips home an adventure and since moving back just about a year ago we have hardly done anything! SO MMR took Rylee and I for a quick 4-wheeling trip.
We went out to the desert right behind our airport and went for a quick ride. And by quick I mean a total of maybe 10 minutes. It was so cold…I was quickly reminded why I love riding in the summer and not so much in the winter. Rylee had a blast. Her need for adventure and being a daredevil inspire me. I am such a chicken.
After our quick ride Rylee and I hung out in the truck with the heat on while MMR and Aaron played around.
Don’t worry – he didn’t tip and Aaron didn’t run over. They’ve been playing this game for at least 20 years – and I’m not even kidding or exaggerating. By the time we left the sun was poking through and it kind of warmed up. Either way it was such a fun afternoon and is seriously making me so excited for real Spring and Summer!!
Baby Hayley hung out at Grandma’s. I was a little sad but it was pretty cold so I’m glad she didn’t come out. It’s all good, our next adventure will for sure include her. When we got back Rylee got to play with her cousins aka her best friends. She was impressing us with her video game skills. She was so happy she figured out how to make the car go.
And the last two things before I go…MMR took a smiling picture with me! It’s a miracle. I think I’m going to frame this one.
Then this popped up on my time hop this morning! I knew I was meant to be a blogger.
What adventures did you go on this weekend?!
Who has the day off?!
MMR does not – I’m kind of bummed
Do you play video games?!
We got an Xbox for Christmas and I bought The Sims to play but I can’t see the TV very well from the couch to play. SO…..
