I wanted to provide a little recap of A’s birthday weekend before time got away from me. It was just the perfect weekend and I hope A had the happiest of birthdays.
We started the day with grocery shopping. Nothing particular to note here other than it was just W and me. W picked out a birthday card for A with a dog on a lawnmower. The lawnmower moved every time the card was opened. W and I couldn’t stop laughing throughout our entire shopping experience.
The weather was beautiful – high 50s in late February is practically unheard of in the Chicago area. We decided to head out for a long walk with the entire family. It was great to get some exercise and fresh air. On our way home, W started picking up random trash in the neighborhood and insisted that we bring it home and recycle it. He made A carry home a large piece of cardboard to put in the recycle bin – so funny.
After that, we headed out for pizza with the entire family at A’s favorite pizza place. The boys were good despite a long wait for pizza and we had a great time watching A open gifts and scarfing down cupcakes.
We finished off the night by watching a couple episodes of New Girl and dreaming of summer Cubs games. J
Sunday was our usual routine. We were early for church for the first time in a really long time. I dressed the boys alike and they looked so cute.
The weather was nice and we were able to take a long walk once again (no trash brought home this time), play outside, and even grill out for dinner.
A and I were able to watch a bit of the Oscars, which was funny because we’ve hardly seen any movies and I had never heard of most of the nominees. “Bridge of Spies? I thought that was a James Bond movie??” Since I’ve stopped nursing/pumping, I’ve had a little more “free” time and it’s so nice to relax at the end of the day even if it’s only for a couple minutes. It was a wonderful end to a great weekend.
And now we have a few inches of snow... Chicago weather... sigh.
