Last week Marissa got to have her first sleepover. I can’t even describe how excited she was. I was pretty excited about it to. I just kept thinking that this was my first opportunity to be a “cool” mom and I didn’t wan to mess that up :).
We started our adventure out at the local public pool. They offer a free swim every Thursday afternoon and it is only a few minutes from the house, so that is pretty hard to pass up. Sadly it was cloudy and windy so they didn’t want to stay long.
We loaded up the car and headed home to play and watch some T.V.
Next came dinner, cheese pizza of course! They were so cute they sang, chanted and made up songs about cheese pizza all the way to the pizza place.
I think this should totally count as Marissa’s first photo bomb.
After we stuffed our faces we headed downtown for our local Third Thursday Artwalk. I was a bit nervous about taking them down there. I was worried they would quickly get bored and not have fun. I couldn’t have been any more wrong. There were LOADS of kids activities this month.

June 19th also happened to be the day that Sonic had milkshakes half price all day. How could we pass that up on our way home?!
We got home late and went to bed. They were so well behaved I heard them giggling for about 10 minutes then they were both sound asleep.
The next morning they ate breakfast outside on the patio and watched a few cartoons before it was time to go home. They were so bummed their time was over. They told me last night in bed they had wished the sleepover could last 100 days.
What an awesome time we had. So much fun, such great kids. I couldn’t have imagined it going better.
On the way home Marissa was a bit bummed and quiet and then she said. “Mom? When can we have a sleepover again?” I know there are lots more sleepovers to come over the next 10 years and I smiled as I said soon.
