We had such a fun weekend this past weekend.
The past two years we've asked the grandparents to give the girls a "something to do" present instead of lots of toys and "stuff". This year, Paul's parents got tickets to the Disney Jr show (Mickey's Magic Show) at the Colonial Center. The girls were so excited! We started our Friday evening with dinner at Chick-fil-a and some playground time and then headed to the show. I wasn't sure how Ruthie would do but she did great! She was really entertained by the happenings on the stage and also very interested in the people around us. Paul had to take her out the last 10 minutes of the show as she was done but other than those 10 minutes she was a trooper.
By some random fluke I ended up not scheduled to work on Saturday. It's been so long since Paul and I were both at home on a Saturday and it was so nice to spend the whole weekend together as a family! Dance Theatre of Columbia which is based out of our dance studio is performing Wizard of Oz this year. On Saturday morning they had a fundraising breakfast so we took the girls to meet the characters. They weren't so sure about it at first but Emmie quickly warmed up and by the end of the breakfast Ellie was ready to have her picture taken too!
