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...
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!
