Fun Weekend!

So this last weekend was pretty fun! Friday night we met a group of friends at the beach – had a picnic and let the kids run around and play. It’s always so pretty watching the sun set over the ocean. I love this Friday night summer tradition! (Oh – and how is Addison’s cone head hair looking? I had a cute little pony tail with a bow and she tore it out before we even made it to the beach. Seriously…why do I keep trying???) Then on Saturday after Addison woke up from her nap, Kenny and I decided last minute to head to Sea World for a couple of hours…beauty of season passes! We had a fun afternoon with the kids. In this first picture we had just arrived at the park – Addison had been in the stroller for two minutes and was straining to get out. Ellie has been to Sea World so many times that she grabbed a map and was planning our itinerary. Goes without saying that Kenny was the only one I could get to smile for a picture. So typical!

Ellie’s favorite Sea World stop is the flamingo’s. I don’t really understand why, with all the sharks, whales and other cool sea life, flamingos are her animal of choice these days!
Come on Addie…work with me here!

So the only downer of the weekend was our movie selection. We watched 27 Dresses Friday night and can I just say that this was the LAMEST movie! I’m all for a good chick flick, but this was just stupid. Too fake and predictable. Kenny and I each had our laptops out after 15 minutes (I rank TV shows and movies by how long we watch them without pulling out the laptops). Saturday night’s movie Sense and Sensibility was a little bit better but not as good as last weekends movies, Becoming Jane or Pride and Prejudice (we’ve been on a bit of a Jane Austen kick lately – it’s definitely summer!). Hopefully next weekend we’ll do a little better in the DVD department! How was your weekend???

xoxo, Erin

  1. Beautiful picture at the beach! I couldn’t go but Marc was going to take the kids. Well I left with all the car seats! Ooops! Got a few text messages and phone calls! Such a fun weekend Erin!

  2. Love the beach picture. We decided to go on our date rather than go to the fun get together. That alone time is just so necessary you know???

    We rented License to Wed this weekend. It was pretty cute. Not in the Jane Austin category, obviously, but it was pretty funny.

  3. The first picture of the fam with the sunset in the background is beautiful….make me a copy so I can frame it….Addie’s cone head hair and all! I just love it!
    Wish today was Friday morning so I was just getting my sweet girls up for toast and Miss Spider :)

  4. Erin! So, I have checked in on your blog here and there, but have just been to chicken to leave ya a comment, until today. Just wanted say hi. Your girls are sure cuties. The oldest one looks just like ya! Hope all is well with you and fam.

  5. Hey Sis – fun weekend indeed! Beach time, Sea World, movies… no fair. Shawn worked and Claire and I were trapped inside because the weather was crap. She crawled after the dogs and kept getting covered in their filthy hair and I didn’t bother to shower until Sunday night. We haven’t rented a movie since 1984 and the weather here continues to suck! You and your perfect weekend… if I didn’t know all the work you do during the week I would be calling foul! ps. Still loving your capris :)

  6. You girls with these darling blogs have made me into a blog stalker.. You don’t know me but I am in Bunko with your cute mom and Nancy Gubler got me started with “reading” these blogs. Your mom brought her new picture of her adorable grandkids to Bunko last week to show them off. She is sooooo proud of her kids and grandkids! She just beams when she talks about you. She loves you all very much and you should feel lucky to have her as your mother as I am sure you do. You have a darling little family!!!!

  7. You have the funnest life. That beach picture is incredibly beautiful of your family. Good to know about the movies. I have to agree with you on 27 Dresses, very predictable. You were smart and did something more productive than what we did, we actually watched the whole bloody thing.
    I love seeing your blog. Tell Carly hello.

  8. Cute pictures of your cute family. I just love you guys and love to check out your blog to see what you’ve been up to. In a few days I’ll be able to talk to you in person to find out what you’ve been up to. I’m excited to hang out with you when you come to St. George. We have to plan something fun!

  9. Erin! so glad to see your family picture getting so many compliments! Please tell me who your photographer is! OK, looks like a great weekend. And, I was glad to hear you were watching Pride and Prejudice, because you know I love that movie.

  10. Ok Erin,
    It’s been a while since I’ve been in the blog mode. But after today, I’m all caught up on the life of my best friend, Erin. Cute, Cute, Cute. I loved the stories and the pictures. Yes, summer is the best!! I’m glad you guys are having so much fun..
    Life is good with us too. We are getting ready for Emma’s temple sealing in a couple of weeks, can’t wait..
    So here’s our big news…we might be adopting again! Ahhh!! And here’s the crazy part- she’s due the middle of August. AHHHHH!! I don’t know if I’m ready to start again. The babies will be 8 months apart. We are meeting with the birth mom in Salt Lake this weekend.
    This adoption came totally unexpected and unplanned. But that’s the fun of adoption, it’s never planned (which is the ONLY thing in my life that doesn’t get scheduled and planned to a T)!! So..I’ll keep you posted on what happens. It’s a wild story, I’ll call you and catch you up.
    Talk to you soon Cutie

  11. I have to admit, after reading some of your posts, San Diego is awesome. I sometimes wish we lived down there. We need to visit you guys. Tell Kenny the bicycle race is on.
