One of the only things I had planned during my vacation was to have my niece, Peyton, over for a sleep over. I was excited. Probably just as excited and a certain blonde 4 year old.
I had plans. BIG plans for us! I was going to buy the movie "Hop". Have you seen it? It came out in theaters last Easter. Such a cute movie. Unfortunately, it didn't get released on DVD until 2 days after the sleep over. *sigh* oh well.
After I picked Peyton up, we went to the store to get toppings for our homemade pizzas, rent a movie and pick out what we wanted for dessert. She reaaalllyyy wanted to see Happy Feet 2 so of course we got that.
There's a duck pond close to my apartments so the kids always ask if we can feed the ducks. This time I was ready for the question. The minute we walked in my door, Peyton was asking if we could feed the ducks. Along the way we met a super sweet cat that was hanging around near the duck pond. Peyton was hoping it would follow us home. I kind of was too.
She colored in the Dora coloring book I got for her. We made out pizzas together. While I was taking pictures of her pizza she tells me " You can make your pizza next and I will take a picture of it". She also told me we were going to make smiley faces with the pepperoni.
I dropped her off and cried all the way home. I know she's 4 and she probably didn't mean the words but they did make me sad. I had been looking forward to this for a couple of weeks. In the end, she told my sister in law that she had a lot of fun at my house. I guess we will try again in time. Overall it was a lot of fun and I am glad I got to spend that time with her.
