My mom flew in on Thursday night, but we didn't get back to our house until 10:30pm, so we had a quick catch up and then headed to bed.
On Friday, we took Amelia to Southland pool to go down the waterslides. She absolutely loved it again! It was less busy this time which was nice. I think the best part was watching my mom go on the big wrecking ball type thing they had. Haven't laughed that hard in a long time! Trying to remember what we did for the rest of the day- not much I don't think. Hung around the house and made dinner at home.
On Saturday, my mom helped us pack up some boxes and Brian made us a waffle breakfast. Amelia was entertained the whole time by playing and drawing on a box! It was pretty cute. In the afternoon, I put Amelia down for her nap and then headed out to get my hair done. My roots were so bad! That night, my mom watched Amelia so Brian and I could go on a long overdue date night. We went to The Keg and had a delicious dinner!
Brian went biking on Sunday morning, so it was just us girls hanging out. I'm trying to remember what we did during the day- struggling to do so! Ooh I know, I let Amelia play with pudding in the morning which ended up being more eating it and getting it everywhere, haha.
My mom made us a big early Thanksgiving dinner, and Alison and Justin + the kids came over in the afternoon. Brian's mom also came down from Edmonton for a visit, so we had a big full house. The kids played so well together and Amelia loved copying everything Delainey did. Pretty sure I'm still full from that dinner.
On Monday, we took Amelia to the zoo and had a fun time! Amelia loved seeing all of the animals and absolutely loved the gorillas and bears. It was so cute! Pretty sure the grandma's had as much fun - they were chasing each other with leaves and climbing on the bear statues. Can't take them anywhere!
On Tuesday, we decided to head to the mall, but Amelia threw an epic tantrum ten minutes after we got there, so we quickly headed home. She ended up falling asleep on the way home and then having a crappy nap once we got home. The weather turned windy and cold, but we decided to brave the park for a bit to get out of the house. That night, Brian took his mom out for dinner and to a concert, so my mom and I made dinner at home and hung out watching This is Us- this show has potential!
And just like that, another visit was over. Why does it have to go so quickly?! For those that have your mom living close to you, I am jealous of you!
