Spoiler alert: I survived the weekend with the kiddos!
On Thursday two of Matt's best friends from high school arrived for a very long weekend of golf. The three of them were all on the golf team together in high school and still get together every now and then for a round. For this trip they spent their first two days at Pinehurst, a course Matt has always wanted to play.
On Friday they returned to Charlotte. I stocked up on lots of local brews for the evening, along with some pimento cheese and duh, pirates booty! We grilled out and let Caroline stay up as late as she could make it (9 pm'ish)! Then the guys went out on the town and I caught up on all my TV shows that Matt hates.
On Saturday we bounced around to as many activities as I could think of to keep the kiddos entertained. I wont bore you with all our errands but Caroline said the highlight was the Chick-fil-A indoor play place...and ice dream.
Meanwhile, back in golf land...
On Sunday we attended a 3rd birthday party at the splash pad for our friend Douglas. My mom told me I was brave for taking both kids solo but I think the more appropriate word would be "insane." Ha.
I dressed the kiddos in their brightest swimwear and relied on help from other friends who were in attendance! Caroline was like a ping pong ball at the splash pad so I barely let Thomas down to play so I could stay on my toes keeping up with Caroline.
Pretty sure we had to have more than a dozen "we share the splash pad toys" conversations in the span of an 90 minutes. Oh, and conversations about why "we don't pour buckets of chlorinated water on brother's head."
Overall, the weekend was super fun with the kids and it was kind of nice to have them all to myself, especially Caroline who usually prefers her daddy. Late Sunday afternoon Matt walked through the door with an iced coffee and a gift certificate for a pedicure. He's the best. And that was a wrap on our weekend!
