Last week we spent almost every minute we could handle, away from home. We were quite busy visiting the Giggle Factory, MN Zoo, a couple new parks (which were totally awesome!) and even spent most of one whole day running errands and grocery shopping. I honestly love it like that, the busier the better...I'm not one to really sit around our house, and really the kids aren't either. So after trying to rack my sleepy head last night for something to do today I came up with nothing, but I figured we would figure something out. So this morning when Braden was down for his nap Alexa and I decided we were not going to get in the car at all for the entire day.
We started with manicures and pedicures. I did my toes this weekend and Alexa was simply dying to have hers painted too. So I gave her a little pampering! Here she is with her newly painted finger and toenails. She was very excited, can you tell? :) She always has her toes painted but we don't do her fingers all that often so when we do she loves it. Everything she did throughout the day she did with her hands kind of tilted towards her so she could she her pretty pink nails. :)
Can I tell you how much fun it is to have a girly girl who loves doing girly things with me!? She is only TWO and I already have a blast doing "girl stuff" with her. She is always up for some hair and wardrobe makeovers. If she's this fun now I can't wait until she's a teenager! Matt might need a second job to keep up with our shopping and pampering! :)
After Braden woke up we decided to pack up the stroller and head into town. First stop: the local library. Which to be completely honest is nothing to brag about, but we like it anyway...it has (some) books! Alexa had fun picking out her books for the week and wanted to read them all before we left...maybe to make sure they were worthy of coming home with us? I don't know! :)
Braden immediately found the toy area and dug right in. It didn't take too long though for him to realize how fun it would be to walk along the book shelves and pull books out and throw them on the floor. Time to leave kids!
On the way back home we found a new park we had never been to, which was pretty cool. Alexa was in heaven...it was fun! Only downfall...no swings, which is Braden's favorite. Besides it keeps him entertained and away from eating rocks. Oh well.
