Weekend Recall

Madagascar 3 was awesome. Aidan and I saw it on Friday afternoon, before the crowds hit, and really enjoyed it! Aidan even did pretty good with the 3D aspect of it.  Although he kept wanting to stand. . .

 We've been signing one of the songs that Marty sings ever since:  Circus Afro Circus Afro Polka Dot Polka Dot Polka Dot!!!  Okay you had to be there.

And, while we there, we saw a trailer for another movie coming out later in the month for Brave.  Looks fantastically fun!!!

Later that evening, we had dinner at Grandma and Grandpas and then headed into Herndon for the Friday Night on the Green concert.  We got a late start and probably shouldn't have gone, but we did have fun. 

We all slept in on Saturday and then Daddy took Aidan to a birthday party at Loudoun Sport Bounce.  Daddy had to work in the afternoon so Aidan and I headed off to the pool by ourselves.  It was a hot day, but the water was really cold because of all the cool weather we've had lately.  We could only stay 2 hours because Aidan kept shivering so much and his lips looked blue.

I had temporarily thought about taking Aidan up to Tarara Winery for another outdoor concert--there are some really cool Indian Caves up there--but I decided we had done enough for one day.  I'm really glad we stayed home because Aidan, uncharacteristically, told me he was really tired and wanted to go to bed at 8:00.  He was in bed and totally asleep by 8:30. 

Sunday, the boys slept in and I went off to church by myself.  Glad I didn't wake everyone up to go!!!  It was Bishop Sunday. . .nice service of Baptisms, Confirmations and Reaffirmation/Reception, beautiful, really. . .but really really looonnnnggg. 

Once home, I changed really quick into cool clothes and then we were off to the 159th Upperville Horse and Colt show. . .where we sweltered all afternoon in the first 90 degree weather we have had all season.  And where I only got a couple of pictures and none of the Jumper Classic!!

You'll have to settle for one of Aidan riding the pony. . .I swear he wears other shirts!!!

We had a lot of fun at the Horse Show and a 14 year old local girl from Upperville came in Second this year!!  We'll be looking for some of these riders when the Olympics start in August.

Aidan starts Summer Camp today at Winwood and then Mini Mites Skills on Wednesday night and then Mini Mites Summer League next Sunday.  Next weekend will be much quieter I think.  We need a quiet one. . .especially since Aidan and I will be travelling the weekend after that and then. . .BEACH time!!!!

And that's the way it was. . .June 8th, 9th and 10th, 2012

Sunday was hot here too. We are planning on taking Anna to see both of those movies. I got free tickets from work so I have included them into our summer time plans. The water has been beautiful up here so I bet you will have perfect water for your beach time.
