Game was great. Nene, Grandpa and Uncle Jay came to cheer like crazy with me. Matt did great and his teammates did well too. They are getting the hang of it. Unfortunately we did not score but we'll try next time. Matt got so close to scoring and I was on the sidelines trying to kick it in for him but apparently that doesn't work! Here's Matt's #1 fan...And the rest of us tie for a close 2nd...
We had a blast! So after the game we thought it would be fun to grab a bite to eat and Matt requested pancakes. We headed to the nearby IHOP and all was going well until (luckily we were all done) Marlie gave it up ALL over! Poor thing...it just kept coming. At one point Matt yelled "ugh it really stinks" and I think I apologized to the waitress about 50 times because it was everywhere. I feel horrible for all the people squeezed in like sardines around us that had not yet eaten. What to do? The cutest thing is little Marlie stripped of all her clothes on the way home...kept saying "I sorry Momma". Bless her heart. She had a 104 fever when we got home so Doug and I both spent the night up with her every 3-4 hours giving her medicine. Although she must have felt horrible she was so sweet and funny the entire time. Luckily she woke up Sunday morning in good shape!
The sweetest thing was when we woke up from our naps on Sunday our friends Evan and Annie had made cards for Marlie and put them up on our front door. It was SOOOOO cute! Thank you Evan and Annie...that made Marlie feel much better!
Sat night Doug and I managed to sneak away when the kids were ready for bed and meet our friends John & Ellaine (also old neighbors, also coworkers) for dinner. It was really nice and we had so much fun. I'm sure we were the loudest in that little quaint restaurant because we laughed the entire time. What a nice break from some of the fun craziness of life with children. Thank you guys we have to do that again soon!
