about last week

we did a few fun things this last week.
last wednesday i had my cousin come over 
to watch the girls and ronnie and i with two of 
our friends went to a royals game.
its always fun to drink a little beer and cheer on 
our boys in blue.  #raisedroyal

ronnie has also been working on my mudbench again.
(yes, he took a month-long break.)
in fact, right now he is downstairs caulking at 9 o'clock at night.
sorry, not sorry.
i'm hoping we get everything primed and maybe even
a first coat of paint on this weekend.
fingers crossed.

we met my parents, my brother and his girls for
dinner on sunday night.
they loved spending time together and eden came 
back for a sleepover and i'm pretty sure they weren't 
snuggled in bed until 9 or after.
brette definitely has to talk about, and show
eden everything when she's over.

we were supposed to take the camper down
to the lake this weekend but since the forcast
shows nothing but RAIN we decided to cancel.
ronnie is super bummed but i'm totally down to stay home.
its a lot of work to get everything bought and
packed for a weekend away.
and i'm not looking forward to testing out how well 
the girls will do sleeping together.
we don't want to take the pack-n-play this year so
that means the girls will be bunking together and i'm just
not sure if reid is ready to share a bed.
we shall see.
i have garth brooks tickets (wahoo!) next weekend, so
we can't go anywhere then.
but we do have plans to drive down to bennett springs over
mother day weekend with another family so
that should be fun and ronnie will be happy.
(happy mother's day to me?)
then of course we go down to the lake every memorial day, so
we'll actually be campering twice next month.  yeehaw. 

in other news, brette, reid and i went to the dentist today.
(i never said it was exciting news)
i was dreading it but it actually went quite well.
brette was a little scared and super shy, but
she followed directions and let the lady clean her teeth.
the previous times we've taken her in, they just take a look, 
but never actually work on anything.
she did great and was so happy about her new princess toothbrush
and shiny teeth.
she asked to see them in the mirror and was a little disappointed 
that she couldn't see any difference.
but i'm just glad she came out smiling.
reid did... ok.
she opened her mouth to let turnbow look, but
when he put his finger in there she started crying which
 just made her mouth open wider and he got a better look.
it took all of 30 seconds.
i'm going to keep taking her just like i did with brette
so she gets used to going and hopefully has no fear of it.
i know as a kid i D R E A D E D the dentist.
(still do, kinda.)

so that's all that's really going on right now.
planning a busy summer and trying to get 
BOTH girls enrolled in school. 
(more on that later.)
i'm excited for the next few months and 
i'm ready for may.
