First Haircut

After being stuck in the house due to the cold and all the snow we've been getting, we were excited about having an eventful weekend. My MOPS group held their monthly Parents Night Out. We dropped M off at the church and went to dinner at the Cumberland Grille. We had never eaten there before and thought it was going to be a nice restaurant. It turned out to be a very laid back atmosphere and apparently is where a lot of locals like to go. The food was fine, but we probably won't go there again. There are definitely restaurants in town that we like more.
On Saturday morning M & I both had an appointment to get our hair cut. We had talked it up to her, and she seemed excited. However, when it came time for her cut, M wanted nothing to do with it! I even had a whole stash of candy for her to choose from for bribery! It came down to me just asking Kendyl to trim it as best as she could.
M was sitting with me first, but then wanted her Daddy. I guess she thought he would save her.

This is how poor Kendyl had to do almost the whole trim.

Right before she was finished, M finally decided to settle down and enjoy her candy.

After our hair appointment, we went to the YMCA to get M signed up for swim lessons. She took them on post from the Red Cross last year but didn't learn much. I'm hoping she will get more out of the lessons at the Y.
When we left the Y, we went to old faithful, the library. M loves her book,Bad Dog, Marley! and was excited to get another "Bad Dog, Marley!", which was actually Marley Goes to School.

The weather was really nice on Saturday so I went on my weekend run that afternoon. After M woke up from her nap, we joined friends outside on the playground.
Sunday morning was spent at chuch and then we went to Ruby Tuesday for brunch. Everytime we ride by there M asks if we can go to "the restaurant". On Sunday evening we went to our neighbors' house for dinner. We always have a great time with them so it was a nice end to the weekend!
