President's Day Weekend

We had a great long weekend! Travis was unfortunately out of town for work, so my mom came to Charlotte to help me parent while he was away! 

Friday afternoon, it was so nice out, we took the kids to the airport overlook to watch the planes!

Lucas was so excited that he was shaking!!! He stared at the planes with this much intensity the whole time!

My mom has an obsession with Dunkin Donuts coffee, so we all went there for breakfast Saturday morning!

Both kids were super excited about their donuts! #breakfastofchampions

Saturday afternoon, we had Mary Scott's birthday party!

Ella wasted no time getting her face painted and a balloon made!

Then Minnie Mouse arrived!! Good news, she and Ella are still best friends (if you remember our trip to Disney World, Ella only smiled in the pictures with Minnie), and Lucas even got brave enough to give her a high 5!

...But most of the time, he just watched her from a safe distance. 

Ella had so much fun dancing with Minnie! 

Oh, and Mickey Mouse was there too!! 

Of course Lucas was so sad (along with his 4 girlfriends) when Minnie and Mickey had to leave! 

On Sunday, we went to the mall. Our Pottery Barn Kids is closing (tear!) so everything was marked down 60%!!! I definitely got some good deals in there! But also in PBK...Lucas lost his shoe. 

Oh just look at him. He knows what he did!! (anyone else think of this when you read that?! ha!)
 I was so irate...1. because he lost not just any shoe but one of his $55 Sperrys that he wears pretty much every day, and 2. this is the second time we have been at the mall and this child has lost ONE shoe. I would rather him lose both shoes, because what the heck am I going to do with one shoe?!

Luckily, I found these at Gap that happened to be on they work for the time being! 

{Oh and (2 days later), I found the missing Sperry!!! I was taking the stroller out of my trunk and the shoe somehow fell out with it! No clue how that happened or how I did not see it before...but yay!!! Lucas has 2 Sperrys again!}

After that mall adventure, we said goodbye to my mom and made a sign for Trav after nap! (Ella's idea!)

Yesterday, Ella didn't have preschool so we met up with one of her friends for some bowling!

It was super cute! We went to Sports Connection, and did the "mini bowling." They use a smaller ball and only play 5 frames...which was perfect for my kids' attention span! Plus it was only $3, so yay! 

Lucas decided he didn't want to wait for the ball to reach the pins...he would just go down there and knock those pins down himself!

He did this about 3 times, so of course rather than yelling at him, I pulled out my phone to take pictures! Because it was kind of funny...and also I was glad we didn't get in trouble. 

Ella loved it! And please notice Lucas behind her, throwing all of the bowling balls on the ground. 

And there you have it...a fun long weekend with my favorite little people! Of course we missed Trav, but big thanks to my mom for coming and keeping us entertained!!!
