Happy Monday! We had a schizophrenic weekend in terms of weather. We started off with some sunny and 70 degree weather and ended with 30s and rain. Thus is Cleveland’s spring!
With the warm weather on Friday, it was the perfect day to enjoy a brightly colored smoothie.
Our carefree Friday ended early though, with a call from daycare to pick up a sick FW. So we spent time on the porch with a sick toddler — at least we spent the afternoon outside enjoying the warm weather.
We continued with pizza for dinner on the porch.
Saturday morning started with a trip to the lake to watch the fish and the geese. FW seemed to be feeling a little better.
FW loved looking at the fish, but here’s a picture of the geese.
Then, it was time for brunch for me!
My friends are the best; they threw me a little sprinkle to celebrate baby #2, and I am so grateful.
That afternoon, we had plans to go to an Indians game. B and I were going to drop off FW and go out, just the 2 (or 2.5) of us. But things changed when FW’s fever turned into a stomach flu when he threw up while sitting on my lap. Toddler sick with a stomach virus and fever does not make for a good combo. We hung out with him the rest of the afternoon and he seemed to be feeling a little better by nighttime.
Since B’s mom already had plans to watch FW she came over after we put him to bed and B and I went out to dinner. It was our first grown up date in a while and it was fun! We had a pretty good meal at Trentina, followed by some ice cream.
This was our dinner – see that candle? It was made of beef – so when it melted you dipped your bread in it!
Of course, I had room for dessert. Cookie butter ice cream – even though it was 30 degrees (B thought I was crazy).
Sunday was a pretty lazy day. It involved lots pouring rain, so we stayed inside with FW while he recovered. We did do a little shopping and I finally got to take advantage of this!
That evening, we had dinner at B’s parents’ house and celebrated his sister’s birthday! FW loved singing happy birthday – it’s one of his new favorite songs!
We also watched the Cavs game … sadly, they lost, but FW had his gear on.
Some questions for you:
- Are you watching playoff basketball?
- Did it feel springlike near you?

It was cold and rainy here today as well. I didn’t even leave the house. Sorry to hear that you had to deal with a sick child this weekend but glad to hear he is feeling better. Your dinner looks so yummy!
Sorry your little one wasn’t feeling well this week. Hopefully all will be better next week and no one else will catch it.
Ice cream and pregnancy just go together …regardless of the weather! Lol
My husband is originally from Cleveland so we had the game on yesterday. Sorry your son was sick but glad you could still enjoy a dinner out! I am totally fine with eating ice cream in 30 degree weather as well:)
Sorry to hear that FW is sick! I’m seeing some stomach bugs in my clinic–hopefully, this virus will burn itself out quickly!
In answer to your question, I woke up to snow. I’m going out for a run later to shake off all the anxiety I’m feeling about the weather!!!
I always have room for dessert! So cool about that candle, LOL. Wonderful gesture by your friends for welcoming Baby #2! Hope FW is feeling back to his normal self soon.
