Mom Mom and Pop Pop Visit

Another exciting couple of days around here!  Kayden has been entertained by two of her favorite people: Mom Mom and Pop Pop!  Thankfully they endured my silly schedule of teaching in 2 places and my usual running around as well as Kris' many many phone calls and late nights.  We managed to squeeze in a trip to the park, a dance class and a meal at Eggspectation.  If you haven't tried it yet, they just opened last month at the Village at Leesburg and their extensive menu is sure to please. Plus, you can get breakfast all day....who can complain? Here are a few photos that show our adventures:


"Mom Mom you play with me?"
Funny....we couldn't figure out why Kayden was attached to Pop Pop the entire visit.  Could have been the popcorn bribery early on.
They told me they took her to the park....and yet this was was snapped somehow...was Kayden behind the camera while the kids played?
swinging with Mom Mom!
Showing us her yoga moves that her friend Priya demonstrated during class today!!
Ending the fun day with some brunch at Eggspectation!
It was sad to see them go, but Kayden has a new sheep friend "Wooly" (thanks, Mom Mom!) that will keep her talking until we meet again!

And then there was one.....

Just thought I'd share a first in the Johnson house today.  We had a leftover at breakfast. 


Can't believe this ooey gooey cinnamon goodie was passed over by Kris hollow-leg Johnson, Kayden Sweet Tooth Johnson and, well, myself.   Poor lil' guy. Maybe he'll get lucky later today? There's definitely a chance for him.

Daddy rocks!

So, after an exciting day of dance class, Spanish lesson and being good for Mommy, Kayden decides to hit Daddy up for a game of bowling...topped off with a "PRETTTTTTY PLEASE?".  And that was all it took.



Could you resist this PRETTTTTY PLLLEASE?




She rolls!



She scores!


Jumping right along to Friday.....

Friday is....GIRL'S DAY! Packed with Gymnastics and lunch and total silliness!
What's this about SNOW on Sunday?  Here's what the Johnsons think about that...

Dancin' the day away

Kayden in her "Fairytale Ballet" Class today with Miss Samantha.

And this one is especially my favorite:  Don't you tell me how to dance, Mom. Miss "Manfa (Samantha) is my teacher!

Tappin' in the Sunshine

That's right!  What's better than snacking on a Z Bar, holding Doggie tight and tappin' in the sunshine today?  Absolutely nothing:)

Spring Fever

So this weather made us a little crazy to get outside today!  Kayden and I had a "gearl's" day beginning with the "Egg Place" (Eggspectation) for breakfast.  She enjoyed placing her napkin on her lap like a proper lady, and eating the green and orange melon fruits.  We ended the event with another successful potty trip.  Yahoo!  We are one whole week strong with NO accidents and no pull ups (not even for naps or nighttime). So maybe with the $$ I'm saving I really could get that new iPad that she's (I mean I've) been drooling over.  Just sayin'.

Next, off to Gymnastics at our old favorite activity place JW Tumbles.  Kayden is doing MUCH better this time around with the structured circle time and following directions.  Love seeing how excited she gets when she knows that it's Friday, and that means activity day!  




Did I mention that it was 75 degrees here today? Yep...we had to take advantage of it!


So, off we went to find some lunch (with Daddy, of course).....

Where did we end up playing some hide and seek?


at our stompin' ground,  Del Rio, of course!  We had Saul (our fav. waiter) and some Summery Spirits to celebrate the occasion: A Nice Day. Finally.



See ya later, Winter!

Charlotte Trip

Oh How we love Charlotte!

Nothing beats eating ice cream cones, in shorts, in February, OUTSIDE:)



And of course, we had to stop and get a cupcake :)






Our Beach Trip

While checking out the Myrtle Beach area, we slipped away for a bit to catch some sun and splash in the freezing cold water.

Kayden LOVED the sand

Spring is in the air!

A day at the park, after-dinner ice cream cones, booking outdoor activities...ahhh..SPRING is in the air!  We are anxiously awaiting our 70+ degree weather this weekend and are stocking up on the necessities (ie: Ribeyes for the grill, wine...of course, ice cream and anticipating some much needed family time.  It seems like we have been on overdrive overload these last few weeks since our mini-cation to the Carolinas. So much to do in the short days that lack extra hours. Well, at least it's staying lighter longer and my kids don't have to dance in the dark anymore:)
