Girls Just a Wanna Have Fun!

This past Friday I didn’t have school! YAY for the wonderful much needed break!… but Ande did have school so Jessica and I decided to take Ande lunch to school. Although she was very happy and excited about us taking her lunch.. she was however embarrassed and didn’t want me & Jessica to eat lunch with her & her friends. Go figure! 
So Jessica & I decided to eat by our lonesome and went to the Park for a picnic. The weather was amazing (low 80’s) …. and once again, the ducks and geese were aggressive. But that didn’t stop us from feeding them and then running away from those pesky little geese. After our little picnic, we walked to the library and read books as well as played in the kid section.

I had a several errands to run so Jessica & I went to the grocery store and did several other things. I then decided to go back to Ande’s school and take her out of school early. Of course she was pleased with that.
We then went to meet my sister Sylvia & her daughter Amanda at the theater where we saw the new Hannah Montana movie. Surprisingly, we all actually liked it and Jessica stood still for the ENTIRE show. Jessica & I have now jumped on the Hannah Montana bandwagon! Yee Haw! There were two songs in the movie that were tear jerkers.  Sylvia, Ande & myself were trying to hold back our tears to hide them from each other… then we realized that we were all secretly crying. Kinda funny! Anyhow, the two songs were Butterfly Fly Away & The Climb.  The other song that was super fun was The Howdown Throwdown. How long do you think it would take you to learn that line dance??


After our movie we decided to walk through the parking lot to Texas Roadhouse. On the way to the restaurant we stopped for pictures or to do silly things. It turns out that I apparently have NO idea how to climb a tree! But give me a break… at least I failed trying!

Jessica was really as scared as she looked!

After dinner, which I got for free because I “nicely” complained about the poor eating experience and this time it had nothing to do with my children’s behavior. ha ha.. Anyhow, we slowly wobbled back to our car that we left on the complete opposite side of the parking lot. We just stood by the car and talked and talked and talked some more. Somehow we started doing those hand/song thingamajigs that we did back in grade school. We were trying to remember how we used to do the Dr Pepper song back in the 80’s…. Do you remember that one? Anyhow, we almost got it, but still need to work on the hand moves and the correct words. I know it sounds super silly, but we actually had a nifty time!

After our fun time in the parking lot – we went to Target to walk off all the food we ate. We were there for a couple of hours. CRAZY! Then it all hit us at the same time… we were all exhausted so we decided to head home around 9:00 pm. It was a super long day but it was so much fun to hang out with just us girls.

Amanda came home with me which made Jessica super happy to have someone to play with all weekend. They played a lot of board games… jumped on the trampoline… colored Easter eggs, made resurrection cookies and just hung out.

On Sunday we went to church and then went to my aunts home for yummy dinner (ribs, carne asada & ham) and an Easter egg hunt for kids and adults. The confetti eggs are the funnest but messiest.
