This past weekend was a busy one for the Gumula's. Friday night John and I went out for dinner and drinks with our friends to celebrate my birthday. Grandma and Papa were in town to babysit Addison on Saturday so we could take Connor to Monster Jam. So we utilized them while we could :) We started the night at The Lounge and bar hopped from there. We had a lot of fun!
On Saturday we had some of John's relatives that live in Tampa over for a little BBQ. This was the first time we have all got together since we lived here. It was great visiting and catching up. Around 3:30 pm we took off for the Monster Truck show. Addie stayed home and got some undivided attention from Grandma and Papa. We had pit passes that were from 2 - 5 pm. The actual show wasn't until 7 pm. We figured we could just tailgate with all the rednecks in between. Connor loved seeing the trucks in person. His favorite was Grave Digger. I think he had more fun tailgating though. We were there with two other couples and their boys, all around the same age. They had fun playing with their trucks. Connor also had a blast playing football with the guys.
We headed to the stadium when it was time for the show. As we got closer Connor could hear the trucks revving their engines. I just wish I could have captured the look on his face when he first heard it. He was so excited! We had great seats and Connor didn't give us any trouble with his ear muffs. He even got to try cotton candy for the first time....and loved it of course. We all had a great time!
Sunday morning, my actual birthday, we all went out to brunch. The kids were super good. I was expecting a little bit of grouchiness from Addie as we arrived at her nap time, but she didn't fuss one bit. Before Grandma and Papa headed home we had cake. Connor and Daddy made me a special blue cake (Connor's favorite color) with chocolate chips of course! He even helped put the candles on it :) I had the best birthday weekend!
On Sunday while playing out back Connor started digging in the dirt. What was he doing? Building a monster truck pit! How cute it that? Addie had fun playing in her play house.
I have a rediculous amount of pictures to share. Click here if you have the time. A big thank you to everyone that helped make my birthday so special!!! :)
