Louisville Weekend

This weekend Alan, Ewan and I went to Alan's parents' for the weekend. Alan's brother, Chris, and his fiance, Megan, and her son, Jayden, drove in from St. Louis for the weekend. They hadn't met Ewan yet, so they were excited...well Megan was at least! We got in Friday evening and were exhausted so we stayed up until they arrived and then went to bed. Poor kiddo was so tired he only woke up once all night.

Saturday we stayed around the house and Alan's other brother, Bob, came over with his wife, Danielle, and their younger kids, Gabbie, Grace and Kate. We played with the kids all day long, except for a trip to Best Buy/Walmart, where Alan and Chris bought Nerf guns for an all out battle later in the evening. When they were gone, Danielle, Gabbie and I attempted to go ride horses in Iroquois Park...except that the stables are now used by the Louisville Police! Oh well, there's always Pokagon for me!

Alan's dad grilled hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken for dinner and it was yummy. I haven't had a burger since July so I was very much looking forward  to it. After dinner Bob, Chris and Alan had their Nerf war with the kids while us girls were innocent casualties...well at first. I decided I was going to stop the war one dart at a time and started slyly collecting them, but then I decided to get in on the action as well. I "borrowed" a gun and started shooting at them from the kitchen with the help of Alan's dad. I was eventually found out though and then they attacked me! They're going to be finding darts for months ha!

Chris and Megan had to leave early this morning to go back to St. Louis but Alan and I stuck around for a bit. Right as we were getting ready to leave, Bob called and wanted to know if we wanted to meet them at the zoo. We had discussed maybe going to the zoo when we got back to Evansville since it was so nice today, so we decided to use our zoo pass in Louisville since we get in for free there too. I'm glad we did! We all had a good time and Ewan didn't sleep through all of it either. I'm really glad I got him sunscreen last week because he definitely needed it! I feel so bad because he got a little burnt on his head, I will definitely be getting him a hat this week! I, on the other hand, should've used his sunscreen, but I didn't think about it until we were leaving, because I got fried! I do this to myself every year, you would think I would learn...

And now, a few pictures from the weekend, well today because I didn't take any yesterday...I really need to work on that, but that's a post for another day :-)
