For the first time in a long time, I had no plans for the weekend, well at least it started out that way :)

With the flood going on, Lizzie's mom asked me to take her so that she didn't worry. They live on our farm and thought their home would be flooded, so I took Lizzie on Wednesday afternoon and she stayed with me all weekend. We collected Campbell also and they stayed busy playing Barbie's, taking care of their webkins and their babies, watching movies and laughing. We also painted nails, went shopping and made cookies.

On Saturday, Campbell had a birthday party for a girl in her class and it was at Jump Planet. It was a really cool place with tons of blow up slides and bouncy houses and the kids were so excited. Cooper and Lizzie got to jump too and it was pretty scary to watch Cooper. He is so little compared to the other kids and I was afraid he was going to get trampled. He just loved it and was doing flips like crazy and was totally fearless going down all the slides. The kids were so tired and Cooper was so warn out, that he fell asleep on me during the opening of presents. After the party, we headed down to South Center to have dinner with Jay and his parents. The kids were really good at dinner but were all fast asleep on the way home!

Sunday morning we got up and met my sisters and brother at Trophy Cupcakes. We haven't been there in a long time and they always want to go. We spent the rest of the day relaxing at home while it rained all day long. I made a pot roast and eventually took Lizzie back to her Mom.

All in all, it was a great weekend. Kids really do make everything more fun!
