Life with Lucas {Week 9}

Lucas has officially taken over this blog...and I am ok with that! 
I mean, just look at him!

{Don't worry, Ella's still my best girl and will continue to bombard this blog, too!}

We wrapped up our time at my parents' last week by coloring...

...having a very eventful dinner at the Mexican restaurant in their town (think: terrible 2's to the on the wall, toddler under the nightmare.)...

...and teaching my dad about Paw Patrol. Ella is so into Paw Patrol; it is getting a little out of hand!

We drove home last Friday. Thanks to a wreck on I-85 and then hitting rush hour traffic in Charlotte, the 3.5 hour trip took us FIVE hours. Ugh. 

Trav also got delayed on his flight back to Charlotte, but by 9 PM we were all home and happy! And not traveling anywhere for a while! 

Saturday morning, my friend from Ohio stopped in Charlotte on her family's way to Hilton Head! Every restaurant had a pretty big wait for brunch, so with 5 kids between the 2 of us, we just took them to Chick Fil A! 

Ella did not seem to mind, especially since she consumed 2 big packs of ketchup there. Gross!

Look at all those babies!! Yep, Ang has twins!!! 

Sunday we didn't do a whole lot. We needed a day to just recover from our travels, do 180 loads of laundry and clean my disaster of a house! 

Monday, we finally made it see Finding Dory!

It was Ella's first time seeing a movie in the theater (and obviously, Lucas's as well) and she did great! And look how excited Lucas was about it!
The movie theater we went to was are just $5 weekday mornings and each theater has these huge lazy-boy type chairs so you can spread out a little bit and kick up your feet. Highly recommend going here if you're in Charlotte (it's the one in Carolina Pavilion on South Blvd, behind Target)! 

Tuesday, we celebrated Lucas's 2 months with, you guessed it, another doctor's appointment!

The clinic we have been going to for his hemoglobin checks has these masks with Mickey Mouse and friends on them. Ella always wants to wear them when we are there!

Lucas did so well that we don't have to go for another check up there until the end of August!!! Woohoo!!!!

Wednesday, we went to story time!
I am so sad our library will be closing next week for 18 months due to renovations! We are definitely trying to soak up our time there!

This next week we have NO doctor's appointments!!! I can hardly believe it! 
This will be the first week I do not have to drive up to the hospital area since mid-April! (The hospital, my OB and high risk OB, our pediatrician, my derm and Lucas's hematologist are all within a 5 minute vicinity of each other)! I don't even know what we are going to do with our free time!!! 
Happy Friday! :)
