Saturday Snapshots: Weekend with a 6 year old!

I'm linking up with Saturday Snapshots' linky party to share some moments from this weekend. My 6 year old niece, Chelsea, is visiting this weekend, so we are busy, busy, busy!

Funny Moment #1:
Driving to my house, we passed a strip club called "The Pink Pony." Chelsea, being both a 6 year old girl and a reader, shouts from the back seat "That store said pink ponies! I LOVE pink ponies! I want to go to a store called pink ponies!" Not that store, Chelsea. Not that store.

Chelsea wrote a story in the car. Other than the fact that she kept trying to show it to me no matter how I tried to explain to her what "rush hour" meant, they story was very touching. Especially because she KNOWS I love Dalmatians!
Funny Moment #2:
My hubby and I are looking for our first home, so Chelsea came with us to look at a house yesterday. Her house qualifications:
1. No bats in the house.
2. No dead animal smells.
3. No feathers.
Our realtor thought he could probably deliver if that's all she was worried about  =)
Then we got home and the child/dog antics began. The dog investigated the child...

The child investigated the dog....

I think they have become fast friends! The dog has certainly earned her title as Greatest Babysitting Dog EVER because she has worn Chelsea out! Actually, I think they've worn each other out...

Then we went to the park. It has a fairly new playground with the coolest toys! Uncle Tim and I were debating if we were too old to play  =) Look at this spins around really fast figure skater style!
And there was a ton of stuff to climb on! Uncle Tim eventually decided he was NOT to old to play.

Now that rest time is almost over, we are going to spend this cloudy day at the theaters watching How to Train Your Dragon 2 eating yummy movie theater popcorn!


  1. Funny moment 1 and 2 are hilarious!! I'm sure Chelsea is loving her fun filled weekend with you!

  2. Love the moments! I keep my nephew sometimes and I always have about 5 or 6 of these at the end of the day to share. I love how dogs are such great babysitter helpers. They have fun and so do the kids. Sounds like you had a great weekend! Let us know how the movie is!

  3. Amanda, this post just made me so happy! I LOVE the house qualifications. They sound perfect to me...especially since our old house was OLD and had bats. So yeah, she is right on there! NO BATS! The story was precious. It sounds like you are enjoying every minute! YAY!

  4. I wonder how many children a day drive by The Pink Pony and want to go inside. They probably think it's a My Little Pony shop. I think if I was buying a house I would have the same things that I would ask for. I don't want bats either. Your niece sounds like she's a lot of fun for sure!! Love all the photos!

  5. I love the dog and child inspection lol. When my son comes through the door I swear the dog checks to make sure he's still in one piece lol. I mean how could the kid be safe without him! Lol Great Post!

  6. I'm laughing out loud. Love the pink pony story. I also love her house requirements. Your niece is too precious. I'd love to see that playground. It looks totally awesome. Thanks for linking up.
