a little of everything

Instead of sharing our weekend review, I'm sharing a little bit of fun Mia and I have been having in the last couple weeks because.... we are still soaking up the "weekend" with Eric! After almost working the last 30 days straight (I wish I was kidding) we are in the middle of soaking up FIVE whole days together! It's heaven! 
Speaking of heaven... Arizona has given us the most gorgeous weather the past two Friday's! I'm talking a high of 70 plus rain! I'm pretty positive this isn't the norm for Arizona weather in May so I soaked it up! The first Friday I met up with Aubrey at the zoo... along with the rest of Phoenix... because the weather was just too good to pass up! I assumed that would be the last time we'd be able to enjoy being out (and the animals, too!) until Fall! Mia was having a bit of a rough day (she came down with a fever that night, no other symptoms, so random!) and wanted to be held the whole time. I love the snuggles but girlfriend is gettin' heavy these days! So when Emery was ready for snuggles with her momma, Mia gladly took over Emery's stroller! She curled up as tightly as she could and reverted back to baby talk and whining... silly girl! She's taking all the tips she can from the little ones on how to act like a baby again, ha ha! But she loved the animals and of course her favorite part was the carousal ride!
We have been keeping busy with a ton of play dates while Eric has been so busy at work, and I'm so grateful for how many amazing friendships we have made already since moving to Arizona just over 3 months ago! Splash pads, baby pools and chalk have been occupying a lot of our time as well. It's a good thing we love the water so much since we will be living in it this summer :)
So far our weekend fun with Eric has consisted of lots of daddy/daughter play time, walks around the lake while searching for ducks, movie night with air popped popcorn, eating at the Cheesecake Factory (I can't believe it's taken us over 3 months to finally go eat there!) and... motorcycle browsing. Yeah. Eric's on a motorcycle kick and it looks like he'll be picking up a new hobby in the next year (I'm really crossing my fingers that I can get him to hold off from buying one until 2016) Of course Mia think it's GREAT! "Bike, daddy! I want a bike!" Heaven help me! Hopefully I take more pictures in the next couple of days because I've been too busy soaking up family time to take pictures, oops!
P.S. Eric and I stayed up until midnight  one night watching Interstellar... we all know how big of a deal that is since I'm pregnant and my toddler doesn't sleep in, right?! What a waste of precious sleeping hours, we hated it! I know this movie is old news (Eric and I have a long list of movies to catch up on) but why did everyone love it so much?! We really don't get it!

So glad you are enjoying time together with Eric, I know how much you miss him when he's working. How fun y'all got a zoo trip and hooray for nice weather.

UGH, don't get me started on Interstellar. No idea HOW it got as much buzz as it did...it was way too long and just blah.

30 days straight?!?! That's crazy!!

Glad your family got some good quality family time :-)

Sara Holt said...

Oh girl, been there done that. Kevin had four days off within a four month period. So glad you've been able to have a little fun with friends while your hubby has been working. Here's to hoping the weather is a bit more comfortable (;

Emily said...

I've been avoiding Interstellar because it doesn't sound half as amazing as everyone makes it out to be. I'll go with your take on it!

Brittany said...

I haven't seen Interstellar yet, either! I'm happy that I read your review because I'm pushing it farther down the list. Enjoy your precious time with Eric! :)

High of 70 is so cold! Haha. Glad you have 5 days to spend together!!!!!!!!! And I still haven't seen Intersetellar but I've only ever heard great reviews besides yours haha.

Courtney [Sweet Turtle Soup] said...

5 whole days!!! ahhh amazing. I've yet to see Interstellar butttt not sure I want to either. I didn't look overly entertaining to me.

Alana Livingston said...

I'm so glad he finally got a few days off and you guys to spend a few glorious days together!
OMG, her dress is so cute!!

Evelina said...

LOL! I don't get the love of Interstellar either! Definitely not for me. Enjoy your super long weekend!!

Erica Jenkins said...

I'm a fan of movies, but i just don't want to watch that one. I'm gonna miss this random beautiful weather! Its a total fluke and im gonna be sad to see my electric bill start to sky rocket now. ;) SO awesome you had so many day with Eric!

Kasey Sutgrey said...

Yay to Eric being home for 5 days!!! Isn't it funny how staying up until 12 watching a movie is out of the ordinary! Enjoy your time together!

Christy said...

I've never even heard of Interstellar! haha! I don't have cable and we don't get out much. Oops! Glad you're enjoying so much family time! Sounds amazing!

Jenn said...

Yes to 70 degree days! And having a bunch of family time! Love it :)

Hannah said...

What a nice break for you to have some cooler weather to enjoy, and that Eric is home for a few days and can just hang out with you two! Enjoy these family days!

And Intersteller... I know. I felt like I wasted half of my life watching that movie and was so mad I stayed up to watch it! I do not get what all the hype was about, it was not for us.

Sarah said...

30 days! That's crazy talk! How did you do it? You deserve a big bowl of ice cream and a massage :) Enjoy the time together. And I don't think we've seen that movie. Good to know you didn't like it...such a bummer that you picked that movie to stay up late to!

Sara Elizabeth said...

So glad you are getting some much needed family time.... love Mia's cute little pigtails!! Officially knocking Interstellar off the list now... That's really too bad though. :-P

Shaunacey Bonneville said...

making a note to say 'no' if Brent asks me to watch that movie!!

Yay for family time, we had some this weekend and it was so nice to just hang out as a family!

Desiree Macke said...

So happy to hear you're finally getting some much needed family time!
Your days sound like they are bursting with fun.
As for Interstellar… Scott keeps suggesting we On Demand it and I keep dragging my feet. I know how long it is, and sleep honestly sounds so much better. So, I'm going to have to kindly toss this review in the next time he brings it up. :)

Lol! I just HATE it when I stay up for a movie and it is dumb. That seems to happen every single time I watch a movie too :(.
