We had a wonderful weekend and I’m sad it had to end. Quite a few times, I thought to myself, “Enjoy this time. The weekend will be over before you know it.” And I thoroughly appreciated every bit.
Saturday, the weather was perfection. Sunny and in the mid-seventies – it could not have been better. We decided to do another picnic/park adventure. This has quickly become one of my favorite things to do with the boys. W gets to play and S is fairly content laying on a blanket under a tree. We were at the park for about 2 hours and then headed home. I think the rest of the afternoon consisted of mowing the lawn and grocery shopping. Lots of fresh air for all of us!
Sunday was our usual church and Starbucks outing. W took a long nap and A stayed home with the boys while I cashed in some gift certificates for a manicure and pedicure. Afterwards, I felt AWESOME. A little pampering goes a long way. I stopped for a S’mores Frappuccino on my way home. I definitely enjoyed escaping for a little me time. It’s been several years since I’ve had a pedicure and I rarely leave the house alone. Once I got home, I made mostaccioli for dinner per A’s request. It was such a great day. J
Monday, we tried to take a family walk, but got rained on. W took an early nap (yes!!) and then we head over to A’s brother and sister-in-law’s house for a Memorial Day cookout. W LOVES his cousins and had so much fun playing outside. The food was delicious and we all had a great time. When we got home, W informed me, “W all worn out playing cousins.”. LOL! I love that boy.
And a big thank you to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Both of my grandpa’s fought in WWII and I thought about them throughout the day.
