as you know, if you've been reading this blog for a while, we are the champions of squeezing waaaay too much into a weekend so that we don't feel like we're missing anything. this tends to mean that by the time the weekend is over i am too exhausted to blog, then i feel guilty and i plunge into a shame spiral about blogging. and that's ridiculous. so before too much time passes and i forget everything that happened, let me tell you about our incredibly busy mother's day weekend.
luckily for me, i got to spend mother's day with this rock star:
|it's a locket made out of a hinge! i get legit compliments on it all the time! also, check out the sweet jewelry box!|
dear penny: thank you for making me a mother. this is the best job i've ever had.
about a month happened in between here, and then we had father's day weekend!
on saturday, we decided to head out early to the aquarium, which has recently reopened after hurricane sandy. we got some bagels and headed out! we measured penny, and found that she is smaller than an emperor penguin:
|did i make that dress? why, yes i did!|
penny is now addicted to lemonade.
after lunch, penny wanted to head to the rides. it turns out that she is a twirling, spinning speed demon! i can't imagine where she gets it from! we ran into a neighbor that we haven't seen in a while, so penny had a ride buddy her own size, which makes it all so much more fun!
on sunday morning, penny gave alex the present she made for him at her grandparents' house, and i made us all pancakes. we spent the morning watching monsters, inc, had lunch at a street fair, napped, then spent the afternoon with the zalben family.
thank you for sticking with me to the end of this post! phew! this weekend penny will be a flowergirl in cousin nicole's wedding, and then on monday camp starts! busy busy busy!
