Such a fun weekend we had!

We went to a birthday pool party with our cousins...that was fun, although as soon as we got there, Leighton insisted on going in the pool and because, obvs she can't swim alone (although she thinks she could), yours truly had to sport a bathing suit for all the fam to see. Still a little uneasy about that, but I did it for the happiness of my daughter (I'm a good momma, ha-ha). She was jumping off the ladder within 10 minutes. And then...we couldn't get her out of the pool - just cried and carried on when it was time to get out.

On Sunday, we went to the Huckleberry Railroad, which is about 20-25 minutes from our house. There are train rides and paddle boat rides. There is even a small amusement area consisting of a ferris wheel and a merry-go-round. So fun! Another cool thing is that during Halloween, they decorate the train as the Huckleberry Ghost Train Express, have trick-or-treating for the kids, a straw maze, an enchanted forest, an old fashioned magic show and yummy cider and donuts! I am really looking forward to taking Leighton there this fall!

The train!

All aboard!

After our train ride adventure, we had dinner at The French Laundry in Fenton. If you ever have a chance to go there, do and stat! Not only does it have a Parisian flair that I adore, but they have the best sandwiches and salads around. De-double-lish!

How cute is this?
