Weekend Update

Saturday Matt helped our friends, the Lake's, move and I watched their daughter Brenna who is a year older than Maddie. I got to experience what it would be like to have 3 kids. We played inside and out, walked to the park, ate lunch, watched a movie, went swimming, and played in the toy room. Let me tell ya, I was beat. Matt said he was beat from all the heavy lifting they did, but I was exhausted as well. Sunday after church we decided to go to the zoo in Topeka. On the way there, Matt got a speeding ticket (ouch)! But that did not detour from us having a great time with the girls. When we got there, we got some train tickets and a pop and popcorn and rode the train through Gage park. It's a much bigger and nicer train than Emporia's. Then we walked to the zoo. We decided not to bring the stroller this time and see how the girls would do. Surprisingly, they both did pretty well. Maddie actually asked to be carried before McKynzie did. When we got there, they gave us a map of the zoo. We always give the maps to Maddie and tell her to tell us where we need to go. Well....this time around, little sister also thought she needed a map so Kynzie was walking around the entire time carrying this big map all spread out so that she couldn't even see where she was going. She looked so cute, I wish I would have gotten a picture of it. She held onto that map the entire time we were there. After the zoo, we went back to the park and played on the playground then went and ate at CiCi's Pizza. It was a good day with them and we just realize that among all the crazy things happening in our lives, the girls are still our main focus and we need to enjoy all the time that we have with them because they won't be this age forever. :(
