We went to Chuck E Cheese per Aidan's request. His parents tell him that when special guests come to visit that they can take him to Chuck E Cheese...smart parents! If you know me personally you know that I am not a FAN of Chuck E Cheese. I think Brian and Chad enjoyed the visit to Chuck E Cheese as much as Aidan did. Aidan and I went on a ride together and it was a neat ride, even though I thought it would have scared him, but it didn't... in fact we rode the same ride three times in a row. That evening we enjoyed a game of Phase 10 Master's Edition and brownies. I love brownies, but these brownies were very RICH. Note to self do not use dark chocolate fudge icing.
Our next adventure was the ZOO. I got to hold Drew in a moby wrap the entire time, which I loved and we walked around the ZOO looking at all the different animals. If you are a new mom and you don't have a moby wrap you should get one they are great! We saw Bears, Reindeer's, Monkeys, Giraffes, Zebras, Birds, and much more. The most interesting part of the trip was Aidan... he was so funny! I don't know if he was tired or just scared of the animals. He would scream if he did not want to see something... keep in mind everything was behind a cage and could not get Aidan, but he screamed any ways. Which is so funny because he loves animals. It will be interesting to hear if they go again and see how he reacts next time. Here are a few pictures of our Zoo Trip!
That evening Amie and I made Jalapeno Chicken for dinner and took more pictures of Drew while he was awake. While we made dinner the boys played corn hole and enjoyed the nice weather. Chad and I are grateful that we choose to go to Sioux Falls this weekend as the weather was nice there and we have heard that all it did in NWA was rain! Okay back to our visit we finished the evening playing another round of Phase 10 and the big winner was Amie. The rest of the evening we just helped with the boys, played, and held baby Drew. Our evenings ended late every night and we were up early. In fact last night at 11:00PM I was in Aidan's bed laying with him because he was scared and around 30 minutes later he was asleep, how can you say no to a three year old asking you to sleep with them... I can't. I hope you enjoyed the short version of our trip to the Hansen Family.
We are back in NWA and enjoying the evening with our sleepy dog Bella. She had a great time with her sitters and was so happy to see us. We are blessed to have Amie, Brian, Aidan, and Drew in our lives. Going to Sioux Falls was a needed visit for us, we needed a break from our life in NWA. I appreciate all the love and support the Hansen Family give to us each and every day. I wish you a happy and restful week ahead Amie and Thanks :)
I hope that every family enjoyed the long weekend.
