Friday night we layed low, rented a movie and just stayed in. I was not in a social mood due to some news I rec'd at work Thursday afternoon (more on that later). Frozen pizza for dinner and BFG the movie and then bed!
Saturday Steve and Piper headed to the store and Presley and I made a trip to Target and then we hung out before we headed to Adel for our nephew Austin's graduation party. We hung out for almost 3 hours (I'm pretty sure the party was over and yet here was the Goodrich family still hanging out talking and drinking in the driveway....typical!). We left there after 7 and headed to Ankeny for Jerry's birthday get together at their house! There were alot of people there, including my whole family and lots of friends, good food, good conversation....we hung out until almost 10 and then needed to get home and get the girls to bed!!
I actually set an alarm for Sunday morning b/c I knew we were all tired and we had to get up and out of the house by 9:45 (we rarely leave the house before 10 on the weekends!).
Presley had a birthday party for cousin Ava at Pump It Up (this is the 4th party we have had there in the last 2 months) but Piper couldn't go b/c she had her gymnastics Spring Fling.
Presley was crying when Steve took her inside the party b/c she didn't know anyone and she didn't really want us to leave, she really wanted Piper there with her.
Piper was in the car with me, crying b/c she wanted to go to the party! Lovely.
I figured with both kids crying it was going to be disasterous morning and neither one of them would participate in their scheduled events. Presley finally agreed to hang out at the party with Aunt Christie and eventually played and had fun. I can understand how it would be hard not knowing anyone but the birthday girl.
We took Piper to her Spring Fling (which was a totally different experience than Presley's last year..... http://thegoodlife-jgo.blogspot.com/2016/05/spring-fling.html ) She was definitely nervous but she did good! There were two groups of 5 girls and all the parents, grandparents, siblings were able to watch, clap and take pictures. Both groups went at the same time on different events, which is nice b/c not everyone is watching the SAME kid at one time.....however, Piper was the last one in her group to go and the other group was always done before hers, so everyone in the whole place was watching JUST her. We were so proud of her!
Her cartwheel, everyone gasped b/c they were impressed with how good she did!
Goofing around, waiting for her turn.
Getting her medal
So cute! So proud! Love that smile!
