Our Weekend.

Saturday morning we were all in our bed just laying around, watching tv. I turned to Rodney and said, do you HAVE to work today? He said not really. My suggestion. Let's go visit your mom. REALLY? He said. Yea, lets go, let's just go and surprise her.

So off to Chicago we went. It was nice to get out of the house, and go on a little road trip and just 'get a way'. We had a lot of fun... Rodney's mom was very surprised and greatful that we came up for the weekend.

Once we got there, the girls were into everything under the sun of course, had to check out what Grandma was hiding. Lyric came out with one of Grandma's wigs. Holy flash forward to the future, both the girls tried it on, and the laughs could probably have been heard from around the corner we were all laughing so loud.

Grandma also has a nice keyboard in her living room, normally Lyric is the first to attack it, she just loves to play on it. This time tho, Aria could NOT get enough of the keyboard, she turned it on and just played and played and played her own little songs, and sang with it as well. I decided to teach her how to play 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' her favorite song, she couldn't get enough, I swear we were playing it over and over for about a 1/2 hr or so. I let her try a few times on her own, and after a while she actually picked a few notes up. I think that I'm going to have to brush up on my piano cause it's been years, and get a keyboard and start teaching the girls how to play, they both adore music and Aria seems to have a nak for it at the age of two picking up a few notes of twinkle twinkle and playing it herself.

The girls had a lot of fun just hanging out with Grandma. Lyric even went to Church with Grandma on Sunday, she actually had a lot of fun, sang, danced and met a lot of kids she said. I really didn't think she'd want to go, or even have any sort of remote fun, since Mommy is so against any form of 'church'. But she asked, so she showed the interest I allowed her to go. My Mother In Law had a really cute dress there that she had for my niece Nevaeh, so Lyric got to wear that along with a pair of new sandals that my Mother In Law bought both the girls.
Here we are before Lyric left for church, she looked just too adorable.Coincidently, Jay Z and Mary J. Blige were in Concert that Sunday in Chicago. If I had planned this EARLIER in the week (before Wednesday) and had let my Sister In Law know about it, I would have been at the concert as well. She had an extra ticket. HOW SAD! I missed a great concert. Oh well, we all still had fun and a great time. We're now planning for our first family vacation to Atlanta Georgia this summer.
