It's all about family!

I am a little sad that, as I write this, it is Sunday night. This means our fun family weekend is officially over. We didn't do anything extra special or fun, but it was fun just spending so much time as a family and doing things we use to do before babies! And, to top it all amazing husband didn't leave us for one cigarette the entire weekend! (Tomorrow will be an entire week smoke-free!)

Saturday morning we ate breakfast and headed to Wagoner to their Summerfest event. We didn't know much about it, but it was only about a 20 minute drive and it was a chance to get out and see some new sites. Unfortunately, it was quite a disappointment. It was suppose to start at 10am, but we arrived at about 10:30am and the carnival rides were not going, the concessions were not open and only a few vendors had arrived. We had passed a farmer's market and a lot of for sale signs along the way so we headed back. We got the best sour cream peacan coffee cake as well as some produce from the farmers market. We then drive around looking at some homes for sale in Wagoner county and Coweta. We we got home we ate lunch and took the boys on a walk. Our neighborhood builder is starting a new subdivision with bigger homes across the street so we went to check out the new model home. Right now moving is just wishful thinking. We feel as though we are busting out the seems in this home. As the boys grow older and/or we have additional children we will definately need additional space. After enjoying some fresh air, we put the boys down for a nap. After doing a few things around the house mommy and daddy decided they needed a nap also! It felt great! I very rarely take a nap and it was so nice to just relax on the couch and take a little nap. After dinner we took the boys out to the backyard and introduced them to their slide. We have had this slide for months but, obvisiouly, the boys weren't ready for it yet. We decided it was getting close to time and we wanted to see how they would react. They seems to really enjoy it and wanted to investigate how it all worked! I think this will be a hit this summer as they continue to grow.

This morning we had biscuits with some blackberry jam we bought at the farmers market yesterday - mmmm, so good! After the boys took their morning nap we left to do a little shopping. The boys each rode in the front of the carts today - this is a new event, and it seemed to go over well! Ashton and Ayden let us know when they were ready for a nap and we headed home. While they napped we got some work done. This evening we had a favorite for dinner - El Salvador's Mexican! We are sorta in a rut and always get the same thing but, today we each tried something new. And...we both loved our selections! After we put the boys to bed Jeff headed down the street to a new sno cone stand we found and got us each one. When he come home we sat out on our front porch one the bench my dad made and ate our first sno cones of the season!
On a side note: Ayden has been quite the chatter box since early on. He doesn't say real words yet, but continues to make new sounds every few days lately. Both boys have been saying "mamamama" and "dadadada" for awhile, but never seemingly associated with us. This weekend that seems to have changed. Ayden is definately calling me "mama" and maybe even calling Jeff "dada"! This is another one of those things that just makes a mama's heart melt!
