Fun with Grammy...

We have had a nice weekend hanging out with Grammy. We went to T-Rex Cafe yesterday (always more fun for Bryn than the rest of the group!)and to a local farm where we picked some green beans and bought a couple of mums and pumpkins. Today was Grandparent's Day and it sounds like everyone had fun. Grammy got to hang out with Bryn in her classroom and eat lunch with her and do whatever it is that kindergartner's normally do (I wouldn't know - my kid surely isn't going to tell me!).

The twilight tour at the zoo was pretty neat although Bryn started complaining about halfway through that she was tired and wanted to be carried...sigh. Sometimes it would be nice to get through an activity that we plan for her without her complaining about it...

On a Bryn bright note, she did stay in her own bed all night last night and only woke me up once. I didn't even actually mind since when I got to her room her hands were on the floor and her legs were on the bed and she was quite stuck! It's hard to get too upset when your kid manages to fall only halfway out of bed.

On Saturday we went to a Homemade gourmet party - we brought different meat and $25 and prepared meals for the freezer. The spices and a couple of additional ingredients were provided and since we have a small family, I ended up with 8 meals. Kinda cool...

The last bit of excitement was that the bug man showed up today to spray and set out some spider traps...he wasn't supposed to be here until Wednesday, but since he was originally scheduled for last Friday and I totally forgot and wasn't home, I figured I didn't have much of a leg to stand on as far as protesting appointment times!

We're off to the park this afternoon and then will be painting the pumpkins we got yesterday...too much excitement around here!

My mom's a "grammy" too. Sounds like you all had a ton of fun! And if you ever figure out that whole "getting through a super fun event planned entirely for child" without said child finding something to whine about, please let me know...Gray could definitely stand a dose of that cure!
By the way, I never know if you come back to read after you comment...but I left you comments over at my blog.

What a neat idea for a party! I would love to go to something like that!

I'm glad y'all enjoyed your weekend and day today! David's off this week since I have surgery, so today feels like the weekend around here.

Hi Kara. I just had to pop over to tell you how your "if we have another NICU baby..." comment broke my heart! I know that is has to be absolutely IMPOSSIBLE not to think about that possibility, but it just made me sad. I wish that you were able to enjoy your pregnancy without all those fears and worries! Know that you're in my thoughts and that good vibes and wishes are being sent your way. I truly hope that this time things will be MUCH BETTER, both for you and for your sweet baby!

Sounds like a lot of fun stuff going on with you guys :) Love that they have Grandparents Day at the school.

The Homemade gourmet party sounds cool too. Must be great to have all of those meals made :)

Painting Pumpkins, that's the best of all! Can't wait to see some photos :)
