Final Days of Girls Only: We Add Dad!
With only two days left before Mr C returned and the days of just being the girls went away, we decided we needed to pack in all the fun we could. Thankfully, Dad was able to join us for the final day of fun though, as he likes to point out, he is not a girl.
Friday, the girls and I got our hair cut which, for Miss M, meant cutting 4 inches off the bottom and for Miss A it means, for the first time in a very long time, she's sporting bangs. A few months ago, we switched our hairstylist and we now go to a good friend from Dance who cuts hair in her home. What a fun way to support a mom who wants to stay at home with the kids. Both girls are loving their new cuts and they look adorable.
The weather was perfect for a trip to the Zoo so we packed a picnic basket and took in a few of the highlights of the zoo. The joy of Zoo membership is you can come and go for a short time and not feel bad if you spend more time on the Carousel and feeding the fish than actually looking at the animals. Just saying.
Saturday, after Miss M's softball game, we decided to capitalize on the perfect weather to go to an outdoor art festival. While we aren't really in the market for Art, we love to wander about looking for deals and will take any opportunity to have some fun. That's just what we did. Have some fun. We made our own "art," enjoyed a snow cone, and, of course, did our favorite thing; people watch. The most unique part of the whole show had to be the Quick Artist who made a "masterpiece" in five minutes time.
Now that's talent.
All in all, we had a great time just us girls and dad, but we were thrilled to welcome Mr. C back home on Saturday night.
