weekend highlights

We were able to enjoy a special weekend because aunt "mee-mee" came to visit! Eric's sister, Amy, flew down to spend the weekend with us and we were able to soak up the perfect amount of fun and relaxing with her here! We didn't make any crazy plans since it was such a short visit and hotter than heck outside, yet it feels like it was such an exciting weekend!
  • Friday afternoon we picked Amy up from the airport... which was not soon enough for Mia's liking! Eric told Mia that night before that she was going to the airport to get Aunt Amy, so I reminded her the next morning when I got her out of bed. Well she cried and cried when I took her for a run instead of "drive in your car to the aiwport! I want mee-mee now!" ha ha! 
  • Eric got home the same time as we did and Mia was in her happiest happy place having mommy and daddy home, PLUS a visitor that would be sleeping at our house! Mia loves having company as much as we do! We went to dinner, did some shopping nearby then called it a night!
  • I had to take Mia to swim lessons Saturday morning so Amy came along, then we stayed at the pool and did some fun swimming of our own. Mia loved checking out a new pool and the best part was that she was so obsessed with Amy being there that I just got to relax and enjoy the weightlessness of being in the water :) Best auntie ever to enjoy get splashed by Mia over and over, ha ha!
  • After swimming and lunch, Mia went down for the longest nap which means that Amy and I got a little shut eye as well. Getting a nap in during the day is something that needs to be documented, ha ha! I need to start fitting time in for a little nap each day to give my body a rest! We had pizza for dinner and just relaxed at home the rest of the night as it was really too hot to go out and do anything (100+ degrees in the evening? Yuck!)
  • Amy had an early flight Sunday morning and we were sad to see her go! Mia hasn't stopped talking about mee-mee since she left!
Aside from having a special visitor, this weekend wasn't anything but plain ol' ordinary and maybe not even blog worthy, but it was a weekend for the books! The perfect amount of girl talk, fun and relaxing... plus we can't ever get enough family time in! I hope we get more visitors soon!

Visitors are the best. I practically bribe my friends and family with the promise of food. I'm still not sure how you're dealing with the heat, but I commend you.

Visitors are the best! Even if you did nothing, it was still something with someone you love! Love Mia wanting to go to the airport!

How stinking sweet! Spending the weekend with family and not really doing anything too crazy are the best ones! I bet "mee mee" was loving the crap out of her!

It sounds like a lovely weekend! I totally agree that you should just get as many naps in as you can, they are so needed! Mia looks so much like you in this picture!
