Our Weekend

We had a great weekend, despite the frigid temperatures! We started our weekend at our friends, the Anderson's home. We had a yummy dinner with two other couples while the kids ran around and played. Such fun!  And Ethan, the boys BFF, gave them the sweetest piece of art for their bedroom.  I will take a picture and post soon, hubby is hanging it tonight.  Thanks E, we love you!!

On Saturday, we took P&K to Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus, holy MUCH fun! We were a bit worried that the two hour show wouldnt hold their attention, but they did amazing!  The boys sat in our laps for the first hour, and after intermission sat in Grandaddy and Grammy's laps. It was nice for P&K to sit in their laps so that Aaron and I could watch their sweet faces and reactions to different things and it gave me a chance to get some pictures!  They were so excited to see elephants, tigers, all the lights, motorcycles...the circus circa 2011 is more like a Broadway show, not like what we went to as kids!!  P&K also had there first taste of cotton candy, needless to say it was a hit!
Paxton still trying to figure out what this cotton candy thing is all about!
Grammy, Grandaddy, Kellen, and Paxton
So the hat came with the cotton candy.  Since we are totally obsessed with all thing Curious George at the moment, this hat is a hit!!  I introduce, Kellen...the man in the yellow hat!
Yellow hat. Check.  Cotton candy.  Check.  One happy little fellow.  You betcha!
 On Sunday we headed to Ila's first birthday party in Huntsville, she is the daughter of my cousin Wes and his wife Elizabeth. She is adorable, we had a great time, P&K thought they were on the receiving end of new gifts...little did they know ;-)!
P&K finally realized that their Great Uncle Tim has his own set of wheels...that they wanted to ride all afternoon!
Sweet Ila! We love you Ila!
