How about a little weekend recap? There are some weekends that we don't do a single thing and then there are others that are just busy, busy! This was one of the latter! :)
During the visit her teacher let her sit down and make a ladybug craft. She was so excited and couldn't wait to show it off when we got home. I'm going to miss her during those mornings but I know she is going to love every second of it. I'm sure Adelyn and I will enjoy some one one time as well.
Since we were all dressed and looking decent, we decided a few selfies were in order. :)
Later that afternoon we went to swim with E's friend Kinsley. The girls ended up spending most of the time playing in the mud.
They did finally run through the sprinkler a few times, though.They're both becoming little California girls.
Emerson is obsessed with hammocks so Jesse hung this one up between the stairs and the door. Emerson calls it her nest and we hung out in it for a while.
That afternoon we had a birthday party to attend so we headed to Target to pick out a gift. I usually make Emerson ride in the basket but we had plenty of time so I let her walk around. She spent some time arranging the car air fresheners and smelling candles.
The birthday party was in our friend's beautiful backyard so Emerson had a blast running around and playing. When I looked back at the pictures from the day I just couldn't believe how big she looks. When did my baby girl get so big?
After the birthday party it was time for another selfie- this time Daddy was included but Adelyn was sleeping and missed the fun.
We ordered pizza that night and E went to bed early since she missed her nap.
E has been telling me that her Sunday school teacher told her to bring her Bible to church so she was adamant about bringing it this week. She was so proud carrying it in.
And Adelyn was happy to be there too, I promise!
After church we stopped by Walgreen so I could grab a few things. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Easter bunny was there and they were offering free pictures. Of course I had to go get the kiddos and bring them in.
We attended a housewarming party for some friends from our community group. It was lovely but this was the only picture I got:
The highlight of our weekend was a church event called As Yourself. The intent behind it was for us to get out and bless others as we have been blessed. We all donated money anonymously and then split it up among our groups. We were told to go out into the community and find a way to bless someone. We ended up going to Target and buying gift cards. Jesse and I headed over to the baby aisle and found two different couples to give them to. The girl that I approached seemed shocked and got teary-eyed. When she asked me for a hug, I wanted to cry too. It was a really neat experience and I hope we get to do it again soon! We are SO blessed to be part of such an amazing church.

As you can probably guess, we were all pretty worn out by the time we got home. It was a busy, but very blessed weekend. With just one more to go until Jesse has surgery and is back on crutches, we are trying to make the most of every second.
I hope your weekend was blessed as well!!
