Weekend in Review

We packed a ton of fun into this weekend!
Friday night after work we went down to Dublin for The Dublin Irish Festival. Despite the heat, we had a great time eating good food, listening to Irish music and playing with the kids in the Wee Folk area.

Now this is a way better view than in my stroller!
We waited in line for about an hour for Grace to do this. I was so proud of her for being so brave!

On Saturday, the men went to the Super Bike races at Mid-Ohio. So my mom, my sister-in-law, and I took the kids to the FREE splash park in Powell. I have to say I was a little disappointed in how little the kids wanted to play. Grace was more content squirting all the other kids with the water gun. Gauge was fine as long as mommy was holding him. I debated on taking my bathing suit....because....well I just hate wearing one. I'm glad I did, otherwise they wouldn't have even put their pinkie toes in the water.

I'm not so sure about all this water!!!
Gauge playing on the playground.

A "Real Train" went by while we were there. Sadly, I think that was the highlight of the trip for the kids.
After we left the park we took the kids to the mall. Gauge was in dire need of a new pair of tennis shoes. I wanted to go to Stride Rite because I know they make wide and extra wide shoes. I'm tellin' ya, this boy has some seriously fat little piggies. Stride Rite wanted $40-50 for a pair of shoes. You have got to be kidding me! I don't even spend that much on my own shoes and mine are done growing. So off we went to Penny's. They sell Stride Rite brand and I got a really cute pair for only $23. Now I just need to figure out a way to keep them tied.

To end our busy weekend, on Sunday we celebrated my nephew's 8th birthday with food, and more outdoor fun.

Whoo, I'm tired!!

  1. Gauge is TOO cute, Lacie!

    My youngest has square feet, so we have to do Stride Rite, too! We actually have an outlet nearby though so we make the trip there and save a ton of $$$!

  2. fun weekend!

    what!?! JCP sells striderite that cheap...!?!

    you don't even want to know how much we laid down today for two pairs for jade! actually it was a gift card from the in-laws...but still!

  3. So you finally got to go to the splash pad! My kids were a bit timid the first time, but the next time we went, they all ran right in and had a blast.
    When I was a hairstylist, I had a lot of clients that went to the Dublin Festival and they all said it was fun; glad you enjoyed it.
