I live for the weekends and luckily this was a good one! I was so so tired Friday and really hoped for a good night’s sleep. Naturally, S woke at 5am on Saturday morning. I can’t even remember who went to get him from his crib, but one of us brought him back to our bed and by some miracle, he fell back asleep. I actually got to sleep (with the exception of the 5am wake up) until around 7am. It was glorious.
I took S to school and once again, we both had a great time. S got lots of compliments on his hair color and his mocs. J While S and I were at school, A took W to swim lessons. Apparently W’s swim instructor said W was doing really well and complimented his swimming. I’m so proud of him. I just want him to be safe in/around water, but I’m so happy we’ve found an activity that he enjoys.
Saturday evening, we attended church and then went to the chili cook off immediately following mass. A picked up McD’s for himself and the boys, even though I think S would’ve been just fine with hot dogs and chili. We had fun trying the different types of chili and visiting with our church friends.
Sunday, we went to Starbucks and then I took W on a date. J We went on a tour of the Jelly Belly warehouse and visited the Jelly Belly store. We had to wait a while for the tour and there was a long line of people. W mentioned that he had to go to the bathroom (of course!) and I told him that if we went, we’d have to go to the back of the line. I asked if he could hold it and he told me he’d try. The tour consisted of riding a little train and it would stop every few feet so that we could watch a video on how jelly beans were made. I could tell that W wasn’t interested in the videos, but he liked riding the train and seeing how big the warehouse was. When we got off the train, he exclaimed, “I held my pee the entire time!” Haha! He later told me, “I didn’t like that the train kept stopping. I was thinking I have to pee, I have to pee…”. Bahahahaha. After visiting the bathroom, we checked out the store and W loved seeing all the different types of jelly beans. He chose gummy bears as his treat. I know… you’re supposed to choose jelly beans at the Jelly Belly store… oh well. After that, it was off to the Rainforest Café for lunch. We had so much fun chatting together, taking in the scenery and sharing French fries. I really enjoy spending time with him.
Once we got home, I tried to clean up a bit (pointless) and A and I caught up on This is Us (what’s with the horse guy?!?). Minus the political atrocities (which I’d like to discuss at some point, but it just makes me want to cry), it was a really great weekend.
