Friday, August 27th I babysat Max. Kaitlynn and I picked up MawMaw after she got off of work and met Cynthia, Annabelle and Alayna at the Zoo for Jungle Boogie. We had perfect weather! It was a lovely evening. We ate dinner and then decided to pet the stingrays. Kaitlynn and Annabelle had fun at the fountain and the mister and got soaking wet. We saw the bears and the penguins (outside since the inside exhibit was already closed). We went to the kids' craft table and the girls made some pictures. We sat over by the sea lions and listened to the music the rest of the evening. The band that played was Bottom's Up Blues Gang.
After leaving the Zoo, we all went to Wendy's and had Frosties. Yum! We closed the Zoo down and then closed Wendy's down. It was a late night!
Saturday, Dave, Kaitlynn, MawMaw, Cynthia, Mike, Annabelle, Alayna and I went apple picking. We couldn't have had a more gorgeous day! We picked apples (Honey Crisp and Jonathon), walked through the market and then put a reservation in at the Country Restaurant. While waiting for our table, the girls played in the little play area and participated in some of the Radio Disney stuff. Annabelle and Cynthia participated in a crazy dance off. Cynthia won for craziest parent dance! I think it helped that she had the loudest people (Dave and I) cheering for her. We had a delicious late lunch! We made sure to save room for frozen custard and then the girls played in the play area some more. We spent all day at Eckert's. We were so exhausted!
We came home and just kind of vegged in front of the TV. Kaitlynn wanted to watch bull riding. She was laughing so loud and saying look at that cow dancing with that person on him! It was so funny to watch her reaction.
Sunday, we missed church. We were all so exhausted! Of course the rest of the day, I felt horrible for not going. Thankfully, I can watch the podcast later. We watched Annabelle and Alayna for Cynthia and Mike. Kaitlynn and Annabelle had a tea party, put a zoo puzzle together, watched Snow White, had a snack, played cars, played on the sit n spin, played hair salon, played with the shape sorter, played dress up (just with the dress up heels), played with one of Kaitlynn's horses, drew a picture of a hummingbird feeder (while we were filling our hummingbird feeder back up), doctored the horse, fixed the horse's hair, did some more artwork, put a princess puzzle together (with Dave's help)and went outside and played in the sand box. Kaitlynn had to take a couple of time outs / breaks because she had a few meltdowns. I think she was just exhausted. Also, the girls hanging out 3 days in a row was probably just too much for them. When Cynthia came to pick the girls up, Annabelle melted down, too. Needless to say, the rest of the evening was spent just relaxing.
