Monday we also went to story time at the library--it's our new favorite! Caroline loves the songs and stories they read and is working on participating and being attentive (ha!). Who are we kidding. She loves singing and crawling around during the songs. I figure the more we go the more she will get into it. Also C got her first pair of shoes. There was a sign for buy on get one free at Target but apparently it was an old ad but they still gave us the deal. We got four pairs of shoes and she only likes one. Oi vey. Shopping for this girl is going to be a feat. We also enjoyed an evening in the park--one of my favorite things ever.
Wednesday I had a major headache. I haven't had one like this in a looong time. It got better and C and I went over to Kenzi's to watch Liam and Luke. It was so easy and Caroline had so much fun with Luke. They play so well together and just follow each other around which makes my job really easy. Luke got tired and fell asleep in my arms! It was the sweetest thing ever. I got home and Ben sent me to bed to sleep off my headache. Ben snuck off to get things to make dinner. That night Ben made dinner himself (I got to choose...what a treat) and he rented Spider Man (the newest one) which was one of my favorite movies that we've seen recently. It was nice to have a date night sponsored by my man.
Thursday we went to the zoo. I met Camille there so she could get a zoo pass for a bargain. I decided C and I would walk around and we had the whole zoo to ourselves!!! Including all of the lions that were out. It was so cool! They haven't had all 7 lions out since we've been going to the zoo. It was quite the site to see.
Friday I can't remember anything big that happened. Ben came home early from school and Caroline was adorable. We went swimming around noon and the water was perfect. It wore Caroline out and she took a good and much needed long nap. We went to Red Robin for dinner and the lettuce wrap Banzai burger was the bomb. I think its my new favorite at Red Robin. Oh, we also started our dogsitting gig! We are watching Charger--he belongs to our neighbors and so far so good.
Saturday Ben went to study for his test the Friday before Labor day we also prepped for Sunday dinner with the Clarks. It was a relaxing day and nice to not have a lot going on.
Sunday was a little wild. I had a presidency meeting at 10:30 and then we had church. Our friends blessed their sweet baby and Caroline had fun reverently playing with Ruth and Will during sacrament. Sunday School I went to the new member class because the ac was out in the regular room (which is also the relief soceity room) Then we found out we were going to Relief Society for the third hour. That's when the mama bear in me came out. The Relief Society room is super small and packed and with so many people in there plus young women there was no way I was taking my child in there---or wanting the girls to go in there. So we working it so everyone came into the air conditioned Young Women's room. It all worked out! Afterwards, Ben drove Caroline and I home and then he drove back to church for a Elder's Quorum meeting. Talk about crazy. He was gone and I finished getting dinner together. Once he came home we worked on a few things together and then Mia came over! It was fun to have adult conversation with some friends and watch our girl's play. Caroline really wants to play with Ella! So bad that she crawled in her carseat! haha! Someday soon she will get to play. Caroline also decided to walk with a ball in her hands and go backwards down the stairs. She grew up so much today and this week!
