I love the weekend. Who doesn’t? Here’s a phone dump of how mine went!
On Saturday, Alex came home and we went right to dinner for his birthday with his mom. Friday I had talked to my pediatrician who had told me to start testing the waters for me for dairy so that we can test his diaper right away when he comes in for his 12 month appointment. So that means I was more or less free to eat what I wanted at dinner.
We went to a restaurant near my MIL’s that was our favorite when we lived there. If you live within 2 hours of Drew’s Bayshore Bistro, GO NOW. It’s amazing. You need a reservation since they are always booked but it’s so, so, so worth it.
I didn’t take any pictures at dinner, but I DID take a picture of myself eating my leftovers just a few hours later 😉 Much to Cooper’s dismay, I kept it alllll to myself. P.S. the menu is always changing, but they always have shrimp and grits. Get them. Now.
Sunday is always my favorite day of the week. It is Alex
s only guaranteed day off, so we get quality family time. I woke up with Ryan early this Sunday. We ate breakfast and played while daddy slept. And this happened.
Obviously nothing happened, but my God it looks like any day he’s going to stand up, say “see ya later mom,” and run off to college. Excuse me while I go cry my eyes out
After a trip to Chipotle for lunch, we decided to pick up Cooper and break in the B.O.B on a walk at the park. We got it about 2 weeks ago, and have been dying to really break it in. Apparently to Alex a walk in the park means a 5 mile hike. I was wearing TOMs, and Alex was wearing Sperry’s so I’m sure we looked weird to anyone passing us. (Though, he doesn’t even own a pair of sneakers other than skate shoes and does everything in either jeans or swim shorts, so this isn’t really weird attire for him. Big ol’ weirdo.)
Momma did the downhills and the flat parts, but daddy insisted on pushing the stroller up the inclines. Coop and I used it as a chance to run up the hills while Alex sweated it out and Ryan laughed at us both.
I really, really, really love these three.
Also, I was having a gooooooddd hair day.
We ended the day with a beautiful sunset on the drive home from the grocery store and chicken pesto pasta at home.
It was a great weekend with my little family. Good moods for the little man, wonderful weather the whole weekend and quality time together. What more could I ask for?
How was your weekend? What was your favorite part?
