We are still slowly recovering from the weekend over here, it was jam-packed & a little exhausting, but so much fun! We kicked it off Friday with a trip to the waterpark, it has been so insanely hot here that being near water seems like the only option. Like usual, Waverly had a blast & burned off a ton of energy (going down the slides head first), while Avalon mostly slept in the solly, fitting in an awake time just long enough to dip her little toes in the water.
For the record, my mom meets us on most of our waterpark days now that I am outnumbered. I’m thinking that by next summer I will be able to handle both girls on my own there, yet I’m sure I’ll be eating my words once they are running in two different directions away from me. 😉
Saturday, we took a big family trip to the amusement park! It was my parents anniversary, plus my husband & I had been wanting to take Waverly to the Sesame Street attraction that they have there as part of her birthday gift, so we had been planning this trip for a while. Honestly though, I got a little nervous the night before, the forecast called for major heat, plus I wasn’t sure how baby-friendly walking around a park all day would be. Yet we ultimately decided to go, packed our car full, & took the hour trip early Saturday morning.
I am so, so glad we ended up going, the girls shocked me with how well they did & Waverly was in pure heaven the entire day. She loved the Sesame Street attraction like we thought she would, but also loved all the other kid rides just as much & did not turn one down! It was so much fun watching her discover something new, she seriously could not contain her excitement. Avalon did great too, we took breaks in between rides to get her out of the heat and so that I could feed her. Plus, my husband & I even got a chance to ride a roller coaster together while my parents watched the girls, overall, such a fun, memorable day!
And lastly, our night. We had planned on leaving early to get the girls to bed at a normal time, but ended up staying later so that we could see the fireworks show (which Waverly was actually excited about, after hating them on the fourth a few weeks ago). While we were waiting, my husband went on a roller coaster with my brother while me & the girls stayed down to watch. Waverly was so cute, every single time another car came down she was convinced it was her daddy, yelling (screaming!), “hi daddy, I’m down here, come & get me!” each time. Afterwards, she told us “her guys” were up there (they come everywhere with us) & started yelling to them. It was so incredibly cute, a moment I will remember forever for sure.
Also, she loved the fireworks this time. 🙂
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
