The curse of not being able to sleep past nine still. Late last night like 2:30am Natalie and I were talking about going to Ihop for breakfast at like 10am. It's amazing how...attached I am to a subject when I fall asleep. Waking up with that being the only thing on my mind. Got up and decided to invite Nate who invited Phil. So in the end there was five of us. Phil, Nate, Me, Natalie & Arthur. Ihop! yay. I was the last one to get there. Shock. I sat on the end being the loner. Yay. I ate Natalies big mushrooms from her skillet. :D
I broke my flip flops the only pair I brought to Logan. Great. I stole me mothers for the time being. After breakfast Natalie, Arthur and I went to the mall to do some maternity shopping. Expensive place. Nate said he was 'busy'. Pff. Whatev. I guess I seemed hesitate to go in the store cuz Arthur pushed me in and said "Enter the threshold of motherhood." Hilarious. We waited around while Natalie made her decisions. I stated my opinion on pregnancies an' stuff. The fact that I want a sleeper bra and a tummy sleeve. The lady there said people wear tummy sleeves without being pregnant too. Don't give me ideas.
Anyways, while we were waiting and looking Arthur found a pink dress he thought I'd look good in. May I remind you we were in a maternity store? But he kept bugging me to try it on. So I did...when the lady mentioned I could put the 20 weeks belly on underneath the dress. If only I had boobs. So I dressed up all pregnant like. We took pictures with the phone. Me and Natalie being pregnant together. Sent to the parentals. Mother didn't think it was funny.
Then we went to JCPenny and there were swimming suits on a sale rack in front. I looked at them and they were sizes 16 or something, but they must've been like junior or kids sizes cuz that wasn't a 16. Arthur found a pink two piece with polka hearts all over it and showed it to me. He wanted me to try it on. It was only five bucks and it looked like it would fit even with a kids size. So I carried around. They made fun of me for a bit so I just fine I'm putting it back and walked away while Arthur yells back to me "no! try it on" and I said no and he yelled "please" and I don't think he normally says that... so I said okay and tried it on. Scary. It fit. So I bought it. It was cheap. :D And I didn't bring my swimming suit this weekend. The time it took Arthur and I to get a swimming suit was less than Natalies time in getting a swimming suit. But she did get more than just that.
Then I went back to the their house and called me Mum. Found out Dad had almost cut his thumb off and was at the Instacare place. Great... I think he likes the sight of his blood cuz he does that a lot. Good thing he's not like his brother and passes out at the sight of his blood. Then I took Natalie to work and stood in line forEVER to buy a stupid cheap two dollar pair of flip flops to get me back to SLC. Then I went home and announced that Mum and I should go swimming like we planned about two weeks ago.
That ended up bringing the whole family....Dustin, Scott, me, Mom, Dad and Alex. We all jumped in the car and went swimming at Sky View. That brought back memories. Hookin up that TV with the Xbox. mwhaha. Anyways... We raced across the pool and actually had a game of basketball together... We never do activities like that. It was kinda cool. That everyone could participate in some way. Something everyone enjoyed. We went in around 3 and got out around 5 or something like that. It was kinda funny how we all decided at the same time that we were done swimming.
We convinced Mum to get FireHouse pizza. :D Washed my hair, went to pick up pizza, came home and we snarfed. We were all starving after those activities. I had wanted to go to the movie Kung Fu Panda with Mum but they only played matinees and we missed them while swimming. But swimming and movie was the agenda for Mom and I. But I thought pizza was good enough. Them old folk dont do as many activities in one day as they used too. heh. But Alex wanted to go to a movie. So we decided on Indiana Jones.
I have already seen it - but it was one that Mom would take the time to see and Dad would almost even be interested in and Alex hadn't seen it... it worked out good for accommodating everyone...except me... But still it was only 3 bucks to get my family together. I think it was worth it.
So much for hanging out with my mom. hah
No, It was an awesome day spending it with family. Actually doing something that we all enjoy and having fun an'...stuff. It wasn't someone doing half an activity and then leaving or someone being busy or having "better things to do" during the activity times... it was nobody had anything to do and so we just kept making up stuff to do til the end of the night.
I like busy days like that. Never have time to sit and rest but maybe thats the best part about it. Because it rarely happens with the family. If only Dallin and Loryn were there and Mindy and the kids.
Little immediate family reunions. I love those kind the best.
