Wenatchee Bound!

This last weekend Katie, Mom, Macy and I headed east of the mountains for a blitz trip to see Heidi and her family. 7 Brides for 7 Brothers was showing at an outdoor amphitheater we love and Mom set up a girl's weekend get-away weeks ago. We left pretty early Friday morning and headed to Alderwood Mall first since Mom had a couple errands to do. We got there before the mall opened, though, so we enjoyed some lattes and a cinnamon roll while we waited.
We had lunch at The Sultan Bakery, and then pulled over in Leavenworth to walk around and let Macy stretch her legs.

This town holds a lot of memories for our family. We used to go camping every summer and have stopped here since we were very little to get our picture taken and have ice cream. It was boiling hot this day (I think 96 degrees or something ridiculous) and I felt about 120 degrees being pregnant!

We got to Heidi's and the triplets were all down for a nap! Katie and Mom hung out with Heidi and Sharon outside and I opted for the air conditioning inside and caught up with Luke while Macy explored the coolest toy room known to man. :)

When the girls woke up, they gave Macy a present. Sooo sweet, it's her first baby doll! She loves it! I was telling Heidi recently that it's annoying Macy's birthday is Dec 29 since I would love to buy her new toys now, you know, big stuff. I don't want her too spoiled, though, and make myself wait but there are so many things you could do with 6 months between big holidays instead of 12!

Before we knew it, it was time to sing "The Dinosaur Song!" This is the cutest thing ever. It goes:
We are the dinosaurs marching, marching
We are the dinosaurs what do you think of that?
We are the dinosaurs marching, marching,
We are the dinosaurs we make the earth flat, we make the earth flat.
We stop and eat our food
When we're in the mood
We stop and eat our food at the end of the day
(At this point, Annie was over it and sat down to read a book!!! Hahaha!)
We stop and take a rest
Over in our nest
We stop and take a rest and then we move along...

You just got a GLIMPSE of this toy room. They have a whole storage unit with labels like, "Musical Instruments," "Dress-Up," "Balls," "Cars and Trucks," not to mention the kitchen, strollers, babies, stuffed animals, books, drawing stuff, easel, cars...Macy spent hours in this room!

After a very full day and a beautiful, YUMMY rib dinner and corn on the cob, it was off to the tub for the girls.

These pictures really do capture what it's like there. SO much fun, SO crazy, SO loud. :) I love it.
Saturday was a PACKED day full of fun. Sharon and I held down the fort while Mom and Heidi went on a walk and Katie slept in. We traded shifts about 10 and Katie and Sharon took over kid duty while Mom, Heidi and I went to one of my favorite stores ever called "Real Deals," and then hit the Wenatchee Costco which is about 100 times better than ours in Bellingham. That store is incredible!!!!

All the kids were eating lunch when we got back and went down for a nap and the rest of us and Luke got to swim/float/lounge by the pool. It was SUCH a delightful day, not too hot, just so fun to feel like it was summer and relax.

Macy woke up first (had a little poop episode in her pack and play...let's just say no onesie and good thing she was a little constipated and the poop was more pellet-like than anything) so she got to come and swim for a little while.

That girls LOVES to be in the water. We all took turns holding her and splashing with her and she was so happy.
When we were done swimming I took a shower with Macy thinking that would be time productive since we were going out that night and she needed a bath too after all the sunscreen... Just when I soaped up my face, the water stopped. She had turned it OFF! I was feeling around like a blind person and Macy is giggling and I first scald myself trying to protect her from the hot water and then freeze to death as I have soap in my eyes and couldn't see what in the world I was doing. She did the exact same thing when I had shampooed my hair and had my eyes closed. The joys of motherhood, I tell you. That is the LAST shower I take with her anytime soon. :)

Andy and my cousins KC and Jed and their two friends fed all the kids dinner and put them all to bed Saturday night so Sharon, Mom, Katie, Heidi and I could go out to dinner and to the show. The kids did awesome, Macy went right down and we had the BEST time out! I'll have to add a couple pics when I get them from my Mom since I left my camera home, but it was a great evening and super memorable.
We left for home early Sunday morning and stopped in Sultan for breakfast. Macy mostly licked this twist doughnut but she was very well behaved in the restaurant which was nice for everyone. :) Luke was there, he came home with Sharon so he could go camping with his Grandpa Craig this week and I think Macy thought she won the lottery when he got in the car.

At one point this weekend Luke said, "Someday I'm going to marry Macy!" My sister corrected him and said no you won't, you're cousins. He was a little bummed. :) So cute. They have the sweetest bond!!! Luke taught Macy how to hug this weekend. I love that she loves him.

She also got a new tooth Sunday! #6 on the bottom!
What a goofball. Macy is an awesome traveler. It makes me a little sad to think it's going to be awhile before we go back over to Wenatchee. The pass is terrible in the winter and we're going to add another munchkin in only about 3 more months. Can you believe that? Wowza, I need to get going on that nursery!
