We had a great long weekend! I went out to dinner with some friends on Friday and Avery wanted to put makeup on too.
Saturday morning we had a birthday party at a gymnastics place.
The kids had so much fun. Ben is a regular monkey. They both jumped, climbed, and swung for an hour and a half.
After nap time we went to Gigi and Pepaw's to swim and watch the first OU game of the season.
On Sunday Rob played golf and uncle Stephen and I took a long walk/jog to the park.
SO HOT. It was nice to spend the rest of the day cooling off in the pool.
Ben is getting much more comfortable playing around in the water. He has come a long way from the beginning of the summer when he didn't have any interest in getting in. Avery has also improved dramatically this summer. She can now dive to the bottom of the deep end (12 feet!) and swim nearly the entire length underwater.
On our bonus day off I took Avery to lunch and to see Maleficent.
We watched the trailer and several clips from the movie and she assured me she wasn't going to be scared. Well, she was pretty terrified. Hopefully she's not scarred for life.
Rob and Ben stayed home and smoked ribs for dinner. Ben loved them. So did Avery (ribs are a favorite of hers).
Super fun weekend!!
