Our weekend



We had a good Memorial Day weekend. Saturday we went to the Pungo Strawberry Festival (yes, our evil cat is named Pungo) and had some good bbq, strawberries and funnel cakes. Yum-Yum-Yum. Emma wanted to walk (not ride in style) so most of the time we were holding her hand so she could check out everything. We left by 4pm-she was getting hot and cranky so we high-tailed it out of there, strapped her in the stroller where she proceeded to SCREAM at the top of her lungs down the road until we got to the car. And the cops directing traffic decided they were going to look at her to see what the fuss was all about and that just ticked her off even more! I guess she had a good time until the very end-oh and Dolly-Doll went with us too :)
Funnel cakes are YUM-O!
And then came Sunday.....we went up to see my in-laws and nieces who were camping at Cherrystone on Virginia's eastern shore (its the part of Virginia that is on the Del-Mar-VA peninsula) and that day was a freakin' disaster. We risked going sans nap in hopes she would sleep in the car. Nah, that didn't happen. I tried to get her to sleep in the stroller and she screamed Da-Da at the top of her lungs for about 1/2 hour (Da-Da took the kids paddle boating) so then she was tired and pissed off. Finally, we tried to feed her lunch and she threw her plate of hotdogs and cheese on the ground. Then I had enough- off with Da-Da she went in the motorhome to take a nap in the bedroom. She snoozed about an hour until my niece screamed to Nana about Emma sleeping with her stuffed bear. Ugh-kids and their lovies/bears :) We took them all to the pool-that was the only part of the day that no one was whining or crying. A couple more meltdowns from Emma, a quick dinner and then Chad and I had enough for the day.

Oh yes, the cart came with us too.....
Monday was pretty uneventful. I took her to our pool later that afternoon in her crab float that she wouldn't let me stick her in last year and we cooked some chicken and corn for dinner. I like no-drama days.......sometimes we need a break from our little drama queen.

Sounds like you guys had a good weekend, minus all the meltdowns, LOL! You have definitely got a drama queen and sometimes I feel like I have a drama king. :P Does Emma hit? Gavin's new thing is to hit everyone! He gets mad at you and hits you in the face. I don't know what to do about it. We do time out, but he just sits there the whole time trying to get up. YIKES! Kids, you gotta love 'em though, right? :)
