Past Weekend!

I am going to try and type fast since I haven't updated in so long, but I am ready to go to bed!!! We started off Friday morning by going to SciPort with some neighbor friends of ours and had a great time. SciPort has a toddler area and we stayed there the whole time, with the exception of MY child escaping through the gate and trying to explore other areas. He also tried to climb onto one of the water exhibits....twice. Nice:). We then went to Chick-fil-a where they were having cow day(cow is now one of Jake's most favorite words) and Jake rode the cow train. He had a blast. We tried taking a picture with the cow mascot but to say he was scared is an understatement(all the pictures are on my photo website). We went home tired and took naps!
That evening I took the kids to the pool and Landry was loving the float while Jake was wondering around the food area bringing me old icees. Figured he was hungry so we decided to take a break for pizza.

Saturday we had a birthday party for Melanie Nolen that afternoon. Matt was out of town and I really wanted to take both babies, so mom and dad came over and mom went with me to the party. They had a good time and I am becoming aware that these birthday parties are serious business. I have already booked Jake's party for DECEMBER and the first date I wanted was already booked....come on people:)!!!! We got home from the party, put the babies in bed, and went to eat at Ernest's and boy was it yummy! Got home WAY too late and Jake was up at 6am. No rest for the weary!!

Sunday was busy as I heard our new preacher speak(we have been searching for over 2 years!) and he was really good. Then went out to Aunt Lou's for lunch. Poor Landry has not been feeling good and cried the whole time we were there. So we didn't stay long and ended up going back out there late in the afternoon so Jake could see the cows and ride the big tractor with Papaw. He LOVED it! I did not have my camera and was very upset.

Monday was LONG and I took Landry to the dr. where they gave her a shot and an antibiotic. She seems to be feeling better today after her early morning nap. I ended up taking her to MDO because she woke up smiling and I really needed a small break.

Last, we found out about 2 weeks ago that they are dissolving Matt's chronic constipation division (he is in pharmaceutical sales) and placing him somewhere else in his company. This means we may have to move to Ruston. I have been in Benton for 7 years, we met here, have a GREAT group of friends, I love my job, we have the kids enrolled in their schools, love our church family, I could go on and on and on. So needless to say we do not want to move, but we find out tomorrow or the next day. Please be thinking of us!!

Jake in deep thought on the cow train at CFA. He loved this thing and it really is cute.
Just before we went swimming. Jake decided he would give Landry some attention and you can tell it was resciprocated well!

Mom was quite HOT but hung in there while Landry was taking everything in!
