R&R weekend

On Thursday afternoon my dad & I followed each other back to Hull for a long weekend of R&R. Emily rode with him and I had a sleeping Lincoln the whole way. While I spent a lot of time resting mentally and physically, Emily had all kinds of fun adventures. On Thursday night she went to Uncle Wade's (a.k.a. "Wave") family farm to see 3-day-old lab puppies and baby pigs.

On Friday morning Auntie Abbie & Uncle Wade took Emily to the pet store in Sheldon to pick out some fish for Abbie's 5th grade classroom. Emily had a blast looking at all the animals and took her job very seriously when it came to transporting the fish and introducing them to their new home. (Side note: It was a rather odd feeling sending Emily off with someone while I stayed behind with nothing in particular to do. Usually I'm the one dropping her off so I can run around like crazy getting something done. I guess that's what it's like to send your kids to school.)

After lunch I painted Emily's nails for the first time. She chose red for her toes and pink for her fingers. I think I need a little more practice (or shouldn't try to take a picture with my left hand while attempting to paint with my right hand with a stiff breeze blowing my hair in my face!).

My mom stayed home with the kids on Sunday morning so I could actually enjoy a church service. We then had a family dinner. Lincoln wore his new cow outfit especially for Grandpa Boote. They really bonded over the last week. I think it had something to do with all the hours Lincoln spent sleeping in Grandpa's arms. :o)
