We had a very busy and fun filled long weekend. Saturday we spent the day at Baka & Deda's house. The girl's love playing at the park, so much that at times it is really hard to get them to go home.
On Sunday we met up with Elizabeth, Angi and Ivan at the racetrack for some more fun. They had so much for the kids to do. Olivia took her first pony ride and loved it! She was so excited to be on the pony that when it was time for her to come off, she almost started to cry. I think we might have to do something like that again soon.
Avery on the other hand wanted nothing to do with the pony's. It's times like this that the differences in their personalities come out. She's a lot more cautious of things and usually needs to see her sister do something first before she'll do it.
After the pony rides we headed inside got the girl's something to eat, and then we were off to the craft room. All three girl's LOVED using the sparkles to decorate their Elmo picture's. I don't know about Elizabeth but we were picking out sparkles from the girl's hair the next day. Even after they had a bath!Then came the bouncy castle. Again, Elizabeth and Olivia were right in there having a blast while Avery watched from the sidelines. Next the girl's got a chance to feed some animals. They all LOVED doing this even Avery.Next the girl's all got their faces painted. Elizabeth & Avery decided they wanted a little critter on each cheek. When Olivia sat down for her turn she told the lady that she wanted to be a kitty cat. "Nothing else" she said.Look at these three cuties!!Then came the fireworks! This was the twins first time seeing fireworks so of course Brian and I were really excited to see how they would react. Olivia laid back in my arms with her face up to the sky watching them, and I noticed that Avery covered her ears a few times because of the noise. We probably should have brought the girls ear plugs. Something we'll have to remember for the next time.

To end off the long weekend on Monday we drove up to Grandma & Grandpa's house for dinner. Uncle Mike, Auntie Jennifer, Jack and Noah were all there. The girl's had a lot of fun playing with their cousins. Jack taught the girl's how to hit a baseball, so now all they want to do is play baseball!! We hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend as much as we did!!

Hi Guys,
Thanks for sharing those wonderful memories of your long weekend in May 2008. It was so evident that everyone involved over the 3 days had a great time, including us!!!! Thank you so very much for sharing your Monday with us and the rest of our family. We really did enjoy having you all for dinner and the day. We will have to make sure the girls keep hitting the baseball with the bat next time at Grandma and Grandpa's. We look forward to many more visits throughout the summer and for sure right into the fall. Next time maybe it's out to the driving range for a few hits and for sure the golf cart to look for Bambi's in the woods and hopefully the weather will co-operate a little bit more as we get into the warmer months. "Avery" - Abbey is missing you so much!!!!!
Love you all so very much....Grandma, Grandpa and Abbey.
LOL being sent your way.....
