Ella was playing at her Grammy Nancy's on Friday, so Eric decided to surprise me by taking the day off & whisking me off to the lake again. My sister was still there with her in-law's for the week & invited us back out to go on the pontoon for the afternoon. It was such a gorgeous day that there was no way we could pass it up!

We did have some great festival food for lunch though!
After the festival, my mom & I ran to Party City to get the supplies for Ella's upcoming birthday party, then she had to leave to go back & meet my dad. #boo Ella & I definitely didn't want her to leave, but at least I know the next time I see her it will be because Olivia is here!
I ended up falling asleep after my mom left, and it was glorious. I never take naps, but when I do, I feel amazing. Eric woke me up around 5 though so that we could go out for a fancy dinner.... at Olive Garden.
I swear, Ella ate her weight in breadsticks! She absolutely loved them & ate a ton of my fettucine too. Somehow, we still went home with enough leftovers for lunch the next day too. Hence, why I love Olive Garden.
Our plan was to eat, then hit up Costco for a bunch of bulk supplies we know we'll need once Olivia arrives. We don't want to be running out to the store every 5 minutes, so it seemed like the reasonable thing to do. But... Costco closes at 6 on Saturday & we had no idea that was the case. Thankfully, the employee checking cards at the door took pity on us & let us in. So we literally had 10 minutes to get everything... and there were no samples! This is how Ella & I felt about that...
We finished off our wild Saturday night with snuggles in "mama's bed" while watching Sofia the First & admiring Ella's new princess back pack that came in her box of Pull-Ups.
By the grace of God, Ella slept until 7 on Sunday morning, so we all got a laid back start to the day. We ate breakfast, took showers, and got ourselves ready for a family trip to the zoo. Ella absolutely loves it when her daddy gets to join us & was over the moon to show him all of her favorite things!
We spent the rest of the day grocery shopping, napping, tent building, & grilling! We're all hopeful Olivia will be here soon, but until then we're happy to hang out just the three of us :)
