What a FUN weekend in Cleveland! We had such a good time hanging out and doing ALL of the things OUTSIDE. That’s right, we had pretty much perfect weather and hung out outside from Friday through Sunday.
First, I was able to take off early on Friday and surprised FW at daycare pickup early. We hung out for more than an hour at his favorite playground and it was glorious.
Then, on the way home from the playground we picked up pizza and ate it on the porch for dinner.
LM chewed on her crust for a while. She has been teething for … months now? We’re still waiting for one of her top teeth to pop. She has had 3 teeth forever it seems!
Saturday morning, FW helped me make some muffins.
Then, while B mowed the lawn, FW and I did some weeding.
That afternoon, we headed over to my friend Emily’s house for her son’s first birthday! LM loved the food.
And their dog!
FW loved the kiddie pool.
After the party, it was nap time. Which meant it was time for me to do some more baking!
And when the kids woke up, it was pretty much time for dinner. We ate it once again on the porch.
After dinner, B built a fire and we roasted marshmallows.
And since it was such a nice night, B and FW decided to camp out in the backyard.
Sunday ended up being super low-key. Nobody slept well Saturday night (in the tent or not), so we were all a little grumpy in the morning until nap time. The day included some meal prep, naps for all, and more meals on the porch.
And, a stroller run for the entire family! We hadn’t all run (the 4 of us) in AGES and it made me so happy to be out with everyone.
And per usual, we spent the night at B’s parents’ house, enjoying dinner with B’s family. They have a swing set, so FW got in some more swinging before we ate.
And here we are, back at our week. Weekends go by too fast, don’t they?
Questions for you:
- If you had the chance to take a half day of vacation, what would you do with your time off?
- Have you ever camped out in your backyard?
