This Saturday went from the original plan of being a “nice, slightly busy” Saturday, into a “running around like a crazy person” Saturday. Originally, Greg was to take the kids to Lowe’s for the Build & Grow clinic, while I enjoyed some ‘me time’ and then we were to go to a birthday party that afternoon in Yellville. Well, Greg ended up having to work, so I took the kids to Lowe’s. He totally lucked out last week with the Jewelry Organizer…it had like 11 nails…no biggie.
I on the other hand, had to deal with 29 nails, sliding parts, a hinge, and stickers…OMGosh.
Kara whacked her finger with the hammer, causing tears & a tiny drop of blood which required band-aid. Trinity hammered the hinge nails in crooked which made it not ‘transform’. She had to get a new front end from the lady and start over. Kylie broke hers at the very end, but it still works, she just has to be careful with it when it is in ‘Lowebot‘ form. Overall they did a great job and had a good time.
We then headed a few towns over to Yellville for our friend’s kids’ birthday party. She somehow managed to have 2 kids on the same day 2 years apart…which equals one party…genius. After miscalculating how long it would take me to get there, we were the first ones there. Kids enjoyed coloring Yo Gabba Gabba place mats, relentlessly driving everyone crazy with the noisemakers,
eating delicious birthday cake with blue frosting,
playing ‘Pin the eye on Muno‘, and Giraffe Limbo.
I only got one good picture of the birthday boy, and not a single one of the birthday girl. The kids were having a blast and were all over the place.
Overall, everyone had a great time at the party, and it was wonderful to spend some time with my buddies even though it consisted of mostly kids laughing, screaming, and blowing noisemakers.
Even though today was psychotically busy, I would consider it a total success. I guess I wouldn’t mind it too much if every Saturday were like today, as long as Greg was included in our fun. =)
