Weekend ramblings

*This weekend was a whirlwind. City wide garage sales wielded some fantastic bargains while seeing fun sisters (hey there Ang and Joanna!) Thanks to "Aunt" Kami, we got some early deals not to mention the kids got to love on her for a bit. 

*Saturday, Ek and I headed to a wedding (Congrats Stephani and Trevor). The rest of the family had colds so a girls night it was. I believe Ek danced from 8:30-11:30, only stopping for water and cupcakes breaks when needed. We dragged ourselves home at 12:30, this tiny dancer came home naked with a fist full of glow sticks. Now I call that a flipping party :) (side note: I returned home with my clothes on and no glow sticks)

*Sunday, Max and I decided to have a little bonding time as well. His time was not as grand. It involved Walmart and oil change/tire rotation. Seeing as it was Walmart combined with my luck, we were there for almost 4 1/2 hours.  What you say? Let's recap. WALMART FOR 4 1/2 HOURS WITH A 3 YEAR OLD ON A SUNDAY! Here are some highlights.

-bathroom trips - 8

-McDonald's trips - 2 (never thought I would say I'm so happy there is a McDonald's in our Walmart)

-time in toy aisle - 1 1/2 hours

-toys played with - ALL

-saving grace - seeing Kami and Jace. We may have followed them around for awhile. Kami has bodybuilder arms now from carrying one tired boy.

-movies watched on phone - 2

-employees complained to in auto department - 4

-items discovered that we failed to buy when we got home - 2

-times tried to just take car and make a run for it - 2

-sunglasses tried on - ALL.

Needless to say if you can't find something at Walmart. Call me. Chances are I can tell you aisle and price.
