fall friend time

friday night we had our friends becky, jeromy, and their daughter linnea over. we ordered pizza and the girls played and entertained us with their dance moves :) after dinner, we took a trip to freestyle yogurt for dessert. so crazy that it was still in the 70's outside! it's sure cooled down now. it was a fun night hanging out with them and especially fun to watch linnea and azalea's little friendship develop.

saturday morning azalea and i went to her last "learning to talk" research study at the u of m (for this year). she was not super into the activities, which made things difficult, but they are used to that with the 2 year old crowd. azalea refused to do one of the activities all together (because the headphones were "scary"), oh well. we got our $ and went on our way ;) she and i both napped in the afternoon, then we stopped by my parents' for a visit. in the evening, we went out to our friends liz, joe, jake (5) and max's (2) for dinner and a bonfire in the backyard. it was a little chilly out, but we wore jackets and gloves and of course the fire kept us warm. the kids had a blast sliding down the slide into a big pile of leaves and of course there was some s'mores action as well. yum! such a fun night!


sunday morning i met up with kelli at caribou for a little catch up time. azalea stayed home with thatcher, so kelli and i could actually...catch up. haha. i got a hot apple blast, which isn't on the menu anymore, but they said they could still make - yum! thatcher was gone all afternoon and i was productive during azalea's nap. i did a bunch of cleaning and then took a little nap myself - the best of both worlds. we all just hung out at home the rest of the day. aside from a couple tantrums azalea was so cute. i had so many moments this weekend where i just stopped and was overcome by how much i love my family: snuggling in our bed in the mornings, when azalea and thatcher bake together and dance around the kitchen, when i put azalea to bed at night and she is so giggly and full of love. my heart is so full and i can't believe it's about to be even more full in the next few months.
