It was another great weekend in CLE, and it was nice to have a weekend to ourselves with no weddings or big events planned. Which meant we of course ended up packing in tons of fun activities into the two days.
Friday night started with an impromptu birthday celebration for B’s brother. We went to the Flats for pizza, beer and bocce with the kids to celebrate FW’s uncle John.
After dinner, we got to take a walk along the water with FW’s cousins.
Saturday, we started off the day with a walk (me and LM) and bike ride (FW, B and his grandparents) to the farmers market.
After picking up some veggies for dinner and taking in the music, we headed home. Because we had some fun activities planned for the rest of the afternoon – FW and I were going to my Ladies Craft Beer Society together! My friend Reanna was hosting and she has a large property with bees, chickens, goats and more.
FW loves animals and couldn’t wait to see the chickens and the goats. So, after I hung out with the ladies and completed my craft (the macrame plant holder FW is holding), it was time to explore!
FW LOVED the chickens and goats. He was able to feed them both and follow them around for a while. He really enjoyed the farm and now of course I want some chickens!
Saturday night, B grilled up some veggie burgers and veggies we had gotten at the Farmers Market. I love farm fresh meals in the summer!!
Sunday morning started with a stroller run for the family- B took LM and I took FW for a 3.33 mi route. After we finished, we decided to keep running another 1.5 or so miles to literally run some errands. I was pooped (and FW’s face shows how I felt).
Sunday afternoon included some pancakes for FW. He even helped make them.
And naps! All around.
Followed by yard work, groceries for the week (and a little meal planning/prep) plus cleaning. This totally counts as cleaning, right?
And to end our weekend, per usual, we enjoyed Sunday dinner at B’s parents’ house. FW and LM are so lucky- they got to see Grandma and Grandpa 3 days in a row this weekend (and 4 days for Grandma, who babysat on Thursday!).
Some questions for you:
- What types of chores, if any, do you do on weekends?
- Do you take naps?

I wish I was a napper but i’ve never been good at it!
I remember macrame from the 70s! If you wait long enough, everything comes back around. The fresh summer veggies look delicious! The rare time I’ll nap is on a float in the pool. Thanks for linking!
I was just going to say what Holly said! It seems like all the fun things from the 70s are making a comeback. Looks like a fun week. I used to nap when the boys were napping. I don’t nap now but I do rest during the day!
I love grilled veggies in the summer. I bet that was so fun for your little guy!
