Well, another weekend that went by incredibly fast, but what else is new? We had so much fun and the weather was gorgeous all weekend.
A found Cubs tickets for Saturday and we decided that we’d bring S with us. A little back story: W does not like going to baseball games. I hope that eventually changes. On our way home from school on Friday, Uptown Funk came on the radio. I said “Shake it, W!”. To which he responded, “One. I do not want to dance. Two. I do not want to go to the Cubs game.”. Umm, how old is this kid?? Holy attitude. So W went to my mom’s house and the 3 of us went to the Cubs game. I love going to Wrigley Field! S was great company and we had a good time. Thanks to Facebook, I realized that we had gone to a game on the exact same day 4 years ago. I was pregnant with W at that time and had to repeat the photo with S. SO much can change in 4 years!!
Sunday was crazy busy. We went to church, Starbucks, and the grocery store. S napped and then we headed to a local forest preserve with Addie. Poor Addie never gets to go anywhere anymore so we thought she deserved a treat. We had a great time walking the trails. I wore S in the carrier and my goodness, that guy is heavy. After that, we dropped Addie off at home and headed to another trail near our house. S got to walk this one since the path was straighter and sans hills. Annnd of course, W decided his legs were tired so I ended up giving him a piggy back ride. And from there, we decided that the boys needed a playground so we visited a local park. Three parks in one day! I was exhausted.
Not gonna lie – it was tough getting out of bed on Monday. I think I’m too old for three park trips. J So we played at the house. The boys played in the pool and I made a ranch chicken, bacon casserole for dinner. I finally figured out how to get A to eat a casserole!! 1. Add bacon. 2. Don’t tell him it’s called casserole. Seriously though, we both LOVED it. So yummy!! It was a nice, relaxing end to a three day weekend.
We were supposed to take my mom out for a birthday lunch, but she caught the boys’ colds and was pretty miserable. :( Oh yeah, did I mention that we’re a week into the school year and both boys already have colds?!? We’re screwed…
