Ya'll, Jack turned four this past weekend. FOUR. I now have a four year old kid - no longer a baby or a toddler - where the hell does the time go?!? This edition of Weekend Snapshots is brought to you by Jack's first Ferris Wheel ride at his birthday celebration at the Kemah Boardwalk. Make sure to link up with me and Ariana at 3twentysix for our Weekend Snapshots Link-Up and share the love!
Saturday: Jack's Birthday!!! We started off the day with a birthday breakfast at Denny's before heading down to the Kemah Boardwalk. I had to wake Jack up because we'd spend the day before out at an amazing pumpkin patch and wore him out, lol. When we made it down to Kemah, the boardwalk midway was super crowded and overwhelming for all of us, so we browsed the shops for a while before riding some rides. We started at the arcade, went to Build-a-Bear, and ended at the candy shop - perfect shopping for a 4th birthday! When we got done with the shops, Jack had a blast running through the fountain with some other kids - yes, it's still warm enough here for him to play in a fountain in late October. Most of the water kept missing him, but when some would get him, he'd run over to us and yell, "Water got me!!! Ha ha ha!!" and go back for more. Then we rode the carousel and Ferris Wheel before hitting up Bubba Gumps for dinner and cake. After dinner, it was back to the midway to ride the train. Jack wanted to ride all the big rides, but he's not tall enough yet - I swear, that kid has no fear! We found a kid's ride he could go on that raised you up in the air and then bounce-dropped us, and OMG, he LOVED IT!!! The first few times he rode with me (I have to admit, it was lots of fun), but then he got brave and rode it all by himself (they grow up so fast, lol). And finally, he had to ride with Crazy Mimi (yes, that's what he calls my Mom). I'm pretty sure he rode that thing at least 10 times in a row! I can't think of a better way to celebrate turning four!!!
Sunday: My folks headed back to Shreveport on Sunday so Mom wouldn't miss the premier of The Walking Dead (side note: I'm still feeling emotionally compromised by that episode - so sad), and I headed to the last day of the Blog Elevated conference. Even though I was only able to go to the Friday night Blogger Speed Dating (so fun!) and the Sunday sessions, I learned so much great information and met some really awesome people! I don't have too many pictures of the conference, but we did eat an amazingly delicious lunch at one of the speaker's sessions. I love Blog Elevated so hard!
So what were you up to this weekend? How's the weather where you are? While we've finally gotten a "cool" front down here in Houston, we're all wondering where the actual Fall weather is. Link up with us and share your weekend shenanigans! Have a great week!!!
