Friday night my brother and his fiancee came into town, but didn't get to the train station until 11:30. Trav and I were in bed about 10 minutes after he walked them in the door.
Saturday Gwen slept until 7 and woke up singing! It was a nice way to wake up. Started getting ready, then got Ethan and Elise up, and were out the door by 9ish to head to the Celtic Classic.
We met my parents there and proceeded to eat Celtic foods (Sheppard's Pie, Haggis, Sticky Toffee Pudding, etc), listen to Celtic music, and watch some of the Highland Games. I had to stop and see my favorite cookie man, and get some Welsh cookies.
|Gwen's favorite act. Sisters who played guitar, fiddle, and drums;|
and danced jigs. They all had blond hair, and blue eyes like her!
Gwen made friends with this police officer who was there to keep an eye on the crowds. He was so great with her and explained was each piece of his equipment was for. She has been saying for a few weeks that she wants to be a police officer when she grows up and work with the K9 unit, and this just made her want that more!
It was a really great day. We headed home, ate a quick dinner, then got Gwen to bed. We were all in bed pretty early that night.
Sunday, again, Gwen slept until 7 and woke singing. Gosh I wish we could just let her sleep until 7 everyday! She's in such a good mood then. ::fingers crossed for finding a new house soon::
Got up and quickly showered and got dressed. Woke Ethan and Elise up so they could say goodbye (they were walking to the train station an hour or so later), then headed out the door to the March for Babies. Trav's company forms a team every year, and I finally got to join them this year.
|These two, with the holding hands! Gahh, my heart!|
It was fun, though hot. We were back home before 11, and besides laundry and some cooking we were mostly lazy for the rest of the day. We all needed it at that point!
Everyone was in bed early again, and now we are on to another week.
It was a beautiful morning, and there is a beef stew cooking in my crock pot right now; so as far as Mondays go, this was a sleepy, but good one. Hope your weekends were as full and fun as ours!
