It's been awhile since we've last blogged ... so let me fill you in on our busy weekend and our exciting week to come!
On Friday we left for Kansas City right after David got off work ... we were as anxious as ever to get there, because we haven't been for months! This was Abby's first road-trip, and she was such a good girl ... she sat on her little towel next to Hayden and he pet her and made her feel safe. :)
Cousins Ailee and Hayden were reunited and it was like they'd never been apart ... they immediately started playing, chasing one another throughout the house ... you could definitely tell that Ailee was excited she had a new walking buddy ... and Hayden was just happy that he could keep up with her now!
Hayden was enamored with the metal cylinder "thingie" (scientific term) that turns the fireplace on and off at Grandma and Grandpa Kinnan's ... in this picture he's showing Grandma that if you take it out ... you can put it back in ... one new thing about Hayden ... he is obsessed with those toy blocks that you fit through the holes ... so this kept him busy for hours!
Hayden also got to hang-out with Grandpa Kinnan ... and showed him his new-found trick ... pointing ... it has replaced the whining (well, almost replaced) when he wants something ... here I think he's pointing to the car keys ... maybe wants to take Grandpa's car out for a spin!
Friday night Grandma and Grandpa babysat while David and I went to "Late Night with Bill Self" in Lawrence. The fieldhouse was absolutely packed, and we had a blast! David will elaborate on his thoughts for the upcoming Jayhawk season ... although I was raised a Jayhawker, David is the biggest fan I've EVER seen! :)
Grandma and Grandpa got to watch Hayden Saturday evening for a little bit when David surprised me with an early birthday supper at the Cheesecake Factory! He relieved me from drowning in my schoolwork for an evening of food ... shopping ... food ... cheesecake ... and precious time with the man of my dreams! :) He is so thoughtful and such a gentleman, and we had the perfect evening! For supper we shared an entree ... saving room for cheesecake, of course! He had a brownie sundae cheesecake and I had the tiramisu ... it was heavenly ... delicious ... mmmmmmmmmm, cheesecake!
Gotta go to M.O.P.S. (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) at Westview soon ... then to Anthony Middle School for observations. David is in Paxico (east of Manhattan on I-70) for training all day.
We'll write more later!
Love and God Bless!
