Rain Rain Go Away

We have had some seriously rainy weather this week.  I emptied 3 inches out of my rain gauge this afternoon. All from the latter half of the week.  We have had big storms all week and we even had hail one night.  Thankfully it was small.  It’s already sprinkling again and looks like we could get more storms and rain all day tomorrow.  Our yard is a big mess.  It’ll be awhile before it dries out and we can go out to play!

We had a pretty boring week but a pretty busy weekend.

We did all the normal things this week.  Gymnastics on Tuesday afternoon.  After class was over we headed to Dewey’s bakery – the best bakery in our town – and got our free pink lemonade cake square.  They were giving them away free to celebrate the first day of spring.  Both kids fell asleep on the way home.  I carried Lindy inside and she stayed asleep on the couch.  Then she fell off the couch.  What a rough way to wake up from a nap!  Wednesday I had a March of Dimes meeting so Drew picked the kids up for me.  Thursday Drew took the kids to choir practice. 

Friday afternoon the fun started.  Janice came to watch the kids while Drew and I went to the 2pm showing of the Hunger Games!  We’ve read all the books and loved them.  I liked the movie a lot and Drew hated it.  The camera angles were a little wonky but I got over it.  He didn’t.   We got back home and Janice left to pick Mike up from a car dealership and then we all headed for dinner at the ice cream shop.  Drew left there and headed to an event at Wake that night. 

Saturday was a busy, busy, busy day!  Will and I headed to a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese’s at 12pm for a boy in his class.  I’ve never been there on a Saturday and I hope I never go back on a Saturday!  Whoa!  It was a mad house.  Will still had a great time playing with everything.  He liked the thing you crawl up in and then crawl all around the most.  I ended up giving away his coins because he was only wanting to play in there.  We left there at 2pm and we met up with Drew and Lindy and Mimo.  Drew dropped Lindy off with us and then Mimo and the kids and I went to our second birthday party for our friend Riley.  It was at a gymnastics place.  They started out getting to play in a bounce house and then they let them run wild in the gym part.  There were 30+ kids running wild!  They all had a blast but I had to save Lindy a couple times from being taken out.  It was great to have Mimo around to help me out!  We left there, headed home, ate dinner,  and then Drew and I headed out to the UNC School of the Arts symphony.  Although I was pretty sleepy from two birthday parties, I managed to stay awake.  It was really neat and it is so impressive that they are just in college.  Everything we’ve seen at the UNCSA is fantastic.  Mimo watched the kids and spent the night with  us so we could go listen to the music.

Today we had church and the kids’ choir sang and rang the hand bells.   The hand bells are the neatest thing.  The bells are all different colors and then someone stands up in front with these cards.  If your color is on the card, you ring your bell.  Will does a great job at it.  Lindy can’t see the card that far away.  We gave her the same color as Will and we told her to ring when  Will rings and stop when Will stops.  She did pretty good in the beginning and then she turned her back and pretty much just rang away.  Will did throw his bell behind him one time but he picked it up and kept on ringing.  I’m glad Lindy didn’t follow him on that part! 

After lunch we had a March of Dimes fundraiser at CiCi’s pizza but I don’t think we did very well.  We didn’t have a great turnout of people we know and we got in trouble for telling people walking in to the restaurant to mention the March of Dimes. oh well. We tried!

Here are the few pictures I took this week.
