Here we are.....fresh off another weekend. Could we not have had just one more day? Not that we even did anything really exciting. But I could have used a day to squeeze in a nap, or taken advantage of Chris being home and taken a long shower that included washing my hair. But alas that is not the case...what up Monday? Shall we put the re in recap?
Friday night we let the kids camp out in the living room, aren't we just defying the laws of fun parenting? I know. The boys thought it was the coolest thing, and Avalon just thought it was fun to walk in and out of it no less than 100 times (not pissing off her brothers at all, nooo). Childhood thrills can take little to no effort, and I liked it. The boys made it all night in the tent, and Avalon made it to me getting to the fifth step on the stairs to say---nope! Please escort me to my king size bed where I belong. Smart girl!
Saturday we took advantage of the 40% chance of rain (which we saw not a drop) and spent the day outside. We picked up some fruit at the farmers market and made our way south to Kincaid Park. We explored trails, Pierce made a solid attempt at killing me by making me carry him for two miles. I bribed him with a pony for him to just walk a few more steps but he refused by laying on the ground. Pretty sure my hip bone is bruised from the unknown number of rocks that he was carrying in his pockets, which we HAD to bring home because they were his "fwends". Thank the hiking gods for a large pile of dirt that allowed me to recover for a solid hour while the kids frolicked in the dirtiness! At that point they could have been playing in horse manure and I would have given it a high five! Like I said, childhood thrills!
Sunday we gave in to the noise surrounding our house and climbed the hill behind our community to watch the air show. We live right next to the air field, so the boys get to see the planes fly by almost everyday. But for the show they were flying a little lower than usual, and rocking the sides of our house. The boys were going nuts inside so getting them closer to the action was a must. I am not even sure if we were allowed to be where we were. I didn't see any 'restricted area' signs, not that I even pay that much attention. But we were the only people out there (call us antisocial). We were right at the end of the runway and the views were incredible. The noise was insane! The boys brought their toy planes and mimicked the maneuvers on the ground.
It was a good weekend, filled with family time which centered around child memory making. Chris we be gone again soon, so hopefully this is what the rest of our weekends together will look like! Except maybe with a nap or two thrown in there....
How was your weekend? More importantly how is your Monday going?
