We started out Friday at the Cowboys Stadium with my sister and brother-in-law...in a suite for the Tim McGraw concert, and some sort of Cowboys Hall of Fame thingy for Emmit Smith. (I'm not a huge football fan, so that part was boring) But the concert was awesome, that stadium is unreal, and being on a ground level suite on the 50 yd line is unbelievable! Hopefully we behaved ourselves well enough to be invited back (but that's questionable with my sister and I together!)
Saturday we had a celebration at my sister's for my mom's 70th birthday! This has been a very, very, very long year for her, so it was indeed a birthday celebration!
Sunday morning, we attended a special needs play date at Holly's. I forgot my camera, but I'm sure there are pictures floating around the blogosphere somewhere! We had a very nice time meeting friends we've talked with over blogs or Facebook. It's hard to explain to others the family we have found among other families who are in the same boat one way or another! I think we all share the same sense of humor about things. And as Catherine said...it was a nice break from "normal!" There were lots of laughs, and talk of Dr.'s and therapies, we did a book/toy swap, and discussed lots. It was a good time! We hope to make this a monthly thing... and Kendall needs to redeem herself...since she hadn't had a nap and was really fussy the whole time.
We booked out a little early because Kam and I had to get home so we could make it to the Jonas Brothers Concert! This was Kam's first "real" concert. He had a blast with his friend Brayden, his little sister and her friend. They lasted a lot longer than I thought they would. It was hot, but that didn't stop them from dancing and playing air guitar while looking at the screen. Kamden's throat hurt from singing so loudly! Everyone was pooped and fell asleep on the drive home! I think Kristin, Brayden's mom, and I were more exhausted than the kids after our hour and a half in traffic. We also definitely earned mothers of the year awards when we led 4 kids jay walking across a busy street to the car where we parked to avoid traffic! On the driveway out of the lot, we saw 2 pit bulls eating out of a garbage can right where we had just been! Thank goodness they were too busy scrounging to come after the 6 of us! I don't know what I would have done!
It was a busy weekend, but a really good time! Next weekend I fully intend to stay home, watch movies, and be still!
