I Heart Fridays!

I LOVE Fridays! I look forward to them all week. Derek is off work every Friday, and he ususally takes Ella Grace and me out for lunch and for some shopping. Today was a little different because he had to go to jury duty this afternoon. So, Derek took us to Mimi's (I thought about you Kelly!) for breakfast. I love their blueberry muffins, and so does Ella Grace.

Then, we went to get Evan a trampoline that was on sale this week. Evan is a jumping maniac! He loves to jump and seeks out the opportunity most anywhere including beds, couches, benches at the airport...anywhere! I have always been terrified of trampolines because I watched an episode on Dateline where they featured horrible accidents that had happened while children were jumping on trampolines. I can't remember the specific statistic, but there were more entries to the ER that year for trampoline accidents than anything else! Some were really scary! Well, the one that was on sale is not a huge trampoline. It is only 8 feet and includes the safety net. It's also closer to the ground than a big trampoline, so I feel like it is a little safer. Plus, it is only for one person at a time, so we don't have to worry about several kids in there bumping into each other. He is going to LOVE it!

After picking up the trampoline, it really started to rain. We made a quick trip to Kroger and headed home. There is something about stormy weather that I like. It is so snuggly when you are inside and it is dark and rainy outside. EG really didn't know what to think about the thunder. She would just look at me like, "That scares me but I'm not going to cry because it's ok, right?" So sweet.

So this is what we have been up to this rainy Friday...

Watching it rain

Loving on Momma

Playing with Daddy

Riding Daddy's back

Wearing pajamas on our head like a hat. This girl LOVES accessories!

We have a busy weekend. Derek has drill (whaa!!!) and we have church, gymnastics, and a birthday party. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Oh, and how cute is this swimsuit??? It's all my favorite colors together...chocolate brown, green, pink and blue! $10 at Target thank you very much! Gotta love a bargain! :)

The trampoline sounds really fun! It's a rainy Friday here too - and totally welcome because it cools everything down a bit :)

And I've got to have Scott look at my blog - your comments keep going to my spam folder! I can't figure out how to tell it you aren't spam!!

Happy Friday!

The trampoline sounds like so much fun! I am sure that Evan will enjoy it. Your little EG is precious! I love the pjs on her classic.

Glad ya'll are having a great Friday! I think trampolines are pretty dangerous, but we've had ours since Christmas and the kids LOVE it. I think it is such great exercise for them too. I even like to jump! :)
I LOVE the pic of you and Ella Grace!!
How do you keep your hardwood floors SO clean? I need your secret. :)

Oh, and yes you do need to introduce Miss Ella Grace to purses!! She will love filling them up with stuff. :) Ella puts anything with a handle (buckets included) over her arm and tells me "bye". :) Girls are fun!!
