Weekend Fun

I'm so sad that the weekend is already over. We had such a great one, but it went by way too fast. Here's a little bit of what we did:

Emerson and I hit up the library for story time.

Then we headed over to the park to play.

We finished our morning with a little picnic and duck feeding.
That night we made a family trip to Costco. It's a dangerous thing to do when you're hungry. We definitely stocked up.
Jesse and I decided we wanted to get out and do something but we didn't feel like going back into the city so we decided to head to an old mining town about an hour away. The drive was pretty intense with lots of curvy mountain roads.
Once we made it we decided that we needed to eat. We stopped a barbecue place and it did not disappoint.

There were tons of cute boutiques and antique stores but I'm sure most of you know how that goes with a toddler. She just wanted to walk and look around so we only went in one store for a second.
We did, however, take a ride in the horse drawn carriage. It was a 15 minute tour of the town and it was really interesting. Jesse stayed back with the stroller so he became our photographer.
 Emerson was SO excited! She kept talking about riding the horse and saying his name over and over (Billy!)

And since the town is known as the apple pie capital, we had to get a piece. It was AMAZING! I really wanted to buy a whole pie but I knew that I would end up eating it all so I refrained.

 A mouth full of pie:
When we got home, Emerson had a special package waiting from Mimi and Pa. She was thrilled!! Thank you Mimi and Pa!

We got up early and got ready because we were determined to make it to the early service at church. After scrambling around and getting ready in super quick mode, I looked up the service times and realized that it started at 9:00 and not 9:30. Ooops! So we just hung out at home, read the newspaper, and played until it was time for the late service.
Emerson did great in the nursery again and I really enjoyed the service. I'm still not quite sure if we have found our church home but we will definitely be returning.

We ate lunch at Rubio's (YUM!) and then headed home for Emerson's nap. While she was sleeping I ran out to do some Easter shopping. I have a feeling the Easter bunny is going to be very good to Emerson this year. :)

So that was our weekend. I am sad to see it go but I am looking forward to the fun activities we have planned this week.
