I was dreading this weekend. I had promised Big Boy (nephew #1) that we would have our very first sleepover in 'two weeks'....which I had stretched out into two months because Big Boy isn't great with time. We finally booked it a couple weeks ago, and then Adams accident happened and I wasn't sure if we could do it. However Adam continued to do well, and I wondered whether or not I had the energy to do it. But the weekend came anyway, and I found myself with not only Big Boy but Little Boy as well for the weekend. I was terrified.
However, it went incredibly well. We took Big Boy to the aquarium on Saturday while Little Boy went to Grandmas. The Aquarium was awesome....as always. I just love, love, love it there.
I could spend DAYS gazing into those tanks, watching the fish swim and the coral and sea weed sway. Any baby we have will have a sea life nursery - that's something we always knew. It's just so mesmerizing and relaxing. I think my dream house would be an underground house with windows looking into the ocean, so I could lay in bed and watch schools of fish swim by.
Big Boy had a blast and Hubby loved it too. Such a fun day!
We finished off the day with a play and some dinner at Grandmas and I brought both boys home for a snuggle, and bed. Little Boy went to sleep early, but Big Boy stayed up to cuddle and watch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
He feel asleep and hubby carried him to bed. The next morning began with early morning baby snuggles (the best!) in bed with Big Boy. Then we had pancakes and peaches, and packed up our stuff to head to the beach.
It was the perfect day. Sunny, warm and with a slight breeze. There were lots of waves and the water was cool, but nice. We just swam and relaxed and played, such a nice way to end the weekend.
Of course, we brought home most of the beach with us when we left....but it was a fantastic day and ended in the sleepiest bunch of boys....and Aunts!
