Project 365: Day 49 - Amazing Saturdays.....

So today was another amazing Saturday filled with fun, sun, laughing, jumping, painting, sliding, swinging, snacking, and passing out. The boys were invited out by their neighbor friend, to enjoy a full day of telling the moms where to go. And M and I took orders very well - after we stopped at Starbucks first! The day started with a trip to the Arts Festival and almost immediately, the boys spotted the bounceys. It was actually perfect, we could finish our iced coffees while they bounced away. The festival experience for the boys entailed their first ever snow cone, splashing in the square fountain (we had to apologize for that one), doing a little spin art, and picnicing on the church steps, at which point the boys decided they would create a roadblock on the side walk and demand that everyone stop at the "red light". They were allowed to pass only once the boys said "green light." Yeah, we had to apologize a few times for that one too.

After halting the agenda of several a passer-by, we decided it was time for the captains of the day to tell us where to go next. Playground, here we come! There's this wonderful park about two miles from our new home and we frequent it often. But this was the first time with our new friends, as they had never been before, and I could tell the boys were very proud leading the way. We stayed for about an hour and then the boys decided it was time for cupcakes and ice cream. And we were happy to oblige.

After the sugar rush, the moms finally decided it was time to take back over the day's agenda. Besides, the little men were wiped by that time and could pretty much care less what we did anymore. All in all it was another amazing Saturday. And as the boys and I get more acquainted with our new town and as we continue to meet new people, I'm sure these amazing Saturdays will be part of our regular routine. As a matter of fact, I'm counting on it.
