Weekend Review...Plus Some Funny Pictures

We'll start with the funny pictures...Amelia is at such a fun stage right now.
--She was trying to say "cheese" but it came out as this...we need to work on smiling and looking at the camera at the same time.
--Amelia is crazy about cellphones. She wants to talk on the phone all the time but she wants to talk to someone. We usually try to call daddy because he'll talk to her FOREVER but if he isn't available, she talks to Siri.
--Keeping clothes on sister is proving to be more and more difficult. She loves to run around in nothing more than her diaper. Our little lady is definitely not modest! Also notice the blanket...it doesn't leave her side for very long. She's our little "Linus"
Now onto our weekend fun...
Friday at work was so slow so I decided to take off a little bit earlier than usual for some much needed time with my girl. Jason was on call so we decided to grab dinner from McDonald's and head to Cocoa Castle (a super fun wooden playground).

We made ourselves comfy in the shade, opened up our dinner and just enjoyed the park!  Amelia really likes their cheeseburgers and fries, especially when she has something to dip them in. She'll eat just about anything as long as she has something to dip but she didn't need anything to dip her burger or fries in (that's how you know she is a fan).
After a few quick bites, we were off to explore the park.

One of her favorite things to do at the park is swing and at this park they had a swing that was for older, disabled children and Amelia thought it was the best swing ever. There were baby swings right beside the bigger swings but she was insistent on going in the big, green chair swing.

We played and played until our hair started getting sweaty and curling in every direction. You know it's a good day when your hair curls up from all the sweat. Nothing sweeter! 
We headed out and Amelia was determined to carry the cup of ice to the car. She looked so big walking along the sidewalk with her super large Styrofoam cup from McDonalds.
Saturday was the day of my surprise baby shower so my mom did her best to keep us close to home so we could get in a good nap before the festivities.
On our way to pick up Lacey so she could get her car (or that's the story I was told), Lacey text me and told me that she had to shower. Since we were already in the car, we made a small detour to the park. Amelia looked so dang cute!  We snuck a little ponytail and a bow in her hair and she actually forgot all about it at the park.
We played there for about 20 minutes and loved every second of it.

We finished up our Saturday at the baby shower and visiting with our family that made the drive to come to the party.
Sunday was our day of rest. Aunt Diane spent the night and Amelia loved playing with her...they were so cute to watch!
We also ate WAY too many s'mores!  These were party favors from the baby shower and they were so yummy.
Our weekend was so good!  We were able to spend some good time together with the girls and we had a good day with Jason. Thank goodness this Sunday was one of his 4 days off this month!
