Labor Day Vacation


We had a really nice labor day weekend. Well at first it didn't start out that nice. Josh had friday off and I had already committed to babysitting a friend's three kids for 11 hours to earn some extra money for our trip to Hawaii. Luckily I had Josh there to help me but it still was not fun. The kids were good kids but it was a lot of work and it makes me think I have it easy and maybe I don't want to have four kids. But I just keep having to tell myself that it is different when it is your own and also that it doesn't happen over night. You have time to gradually get used to all the little changes. But still it definatly doesn't make me look forward to my future life. But we made it through that day and ended up having a great weekend. Saturday we went to the Baysox minor league baseball game. I was surprised that Arlie was so good the whole time. But every time the big screen would come up with the crowd to make noise and get loud, these little girls behind us would scream a blood curdling scream at the top of their lungs and Arlie would jump into my arms and hold on tight. It scared her every time. But after the game was over they had a really nice fire work show. It was so fun to see Arlie enjoying them. She just layed her head back on Daddy's shoulder and watched the whole thing.
On Monday we went to six flags with our neighbor and her kids. We had a blast. We just went to the waterpark and they had a really nice waterpark for toddlers. It had lots of little slides and fun things to climb on and water spray. Arlie had a blast. She was grinning from ear to ear the entire time. She loved going down the water slide. We are going to get a season pass for next year. They are only like fifty bucks a peice. It is only 20 minutes away from where we live so we will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy it. We ended the day with a fun BBQ at a friends house. Now we are looking forward to our trip to Hawaii. We leave on friday. We can't wait. I bought tickets for us to go with my brothers for Josh's birthday. His birthday is on the 9th of September this Sunday so we will be celebrating it together in Hawaii.
