The number one thing Morgan does not like is sleep. She gave up naps before she was two. She still has quiet time but only falls sleeps about 1% of the time. She won't even fall asleep in a car anymore. She purposely chatters away in the back to keep herself awake. When we are at friend's house late, we will put in a movie around bed time for the kids. All of them are asleep at the end except for our blurry eyed anti-sleeper. If she is up late, she is still awake at her normal time in the morning. There is no sleeping in. She simply does not like sleep! So when this girl told us on Sunday that she wanted to have a nap (and then did!), we knew we must have had a very busy weekend.
Friday I meet Sarah, Hannah and Caleb at Monkey Bizness since the kids had a day off of school. For 2.5 hours, the three of them played hard racing through the obstacle course, running up and down the slide and chasing each other through the nets. After Monkey Bizness, we headed out to lunch. Caleb and Morgan are still the cutest thing together. Caleb taught Morgan how to play tic-tac-toe. Caleb asked for a boaster seat, but Morgan didn't want one. That was until after he got his. Caleb was so sweet and gave Morgan his seat. After a while they decided they both wanted one so they hunted down the waitress together, to ask for another one. For two alpha and hyper kids, they play so well together every time.
On Saturday, we met JoAnn, Eddie and Logan at the Western Stockshow. We went last year, and Morgan sat watching cows being judged forever. Again, she wanted to watch the animals in the arenas. This time it was the horse weight pulling contest so it was a bit more interesting the cows. Every animal that we saw, she wanted to touch - even the long-steer cows which looked pretty intimidating. Her favorite thing was the pony rides. She did a great job walking around and looking at everything for the whole four hours. She really wanted to see the bulls, but those weren't out. We decided that next year, we need to get tickets to the rodeo show. There were tickets still available for Saturday night, but the show didn't start until 8 pm.
Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera for both of these events. I need to get better at remembering!
