Our Weekend v.9

The first weekend of May was spent with warm weather and birthday parties. 

Friday before I went to work I took these pictures of Soph at daycare. She is always so happy in the morning and especially when she sees her friends and her grandma.

Friday evening after work we went to dinner with some of our friends and Sophia. I was so proud of how well Soph behaved. We always get nervous about going to dinner because we never know how she'll act but she was pretty good when we went. She loves my friend Jesseca so I think that's why. Or because of this Elmo App I purchased for her that let's her facetime with Elmo. Perfect for toddlers.

Gary had to work this weekend so Soph and I headed into town to run some errands with my grandma and aunt. Then my my mom, Soph and I headed to TJ Maxx. We go there almost every weekend! Sophia and I made some silly faces on our way there.

After TJ Maxx we headed to Riley's 1st Birthday Party! Riley's mommy and I have been friends for a few years now. We cheered together in high school and have been friends since. She doesn't live in town anymore but had her daughter's birthday party here. Soph and I were so happy to see the them both and of course her family too. 

Sophia had a great time. After the party we waited for Gary to get home and then spend the evening with him.

Sunday morning we woke up early when Gary left for work. Then we cleaned and cleaned. I haven't put away my winter clothes yet so that's exactly what we did. It always feels good to put away clothes and go through my closet. Soph helped and pretended to fold clothes with me. We then headed into town for another birthday party. The weather was so nice out for the party. We spent all afternoon outside, it was perfect. Sophia took walks holding hands during the party and cooled off inside.

After the birthday party we drove around and looked at some houses. Gary and I like where we live now but it's too far from town. I also want a neighborhood for Soph to grow up in with more children. I found one that is perfect! The nice family even let my mom, Soph and I walk through it. It's got a perfect backyard and we even know the family that live next door! It's pretty much my dream home now. I'll have to beg Gary now. But we'll see. Soph got to try her first slurpee while we were house hunting and she loved it.

And now it's Sunday night and I'm exhausted. I love having fun busy weekends though especially when the weather is so nice. Soph is passed with her daddy while I catch up on here. This time next week we'll be in VA Beach so I won't be posting an our weekend post. I actually won't be blogging at all. I'm going to relax all week but I'll still be taking lots of pictures, don't worry!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
