What a Weekend!

I could not have asked for a better weekend!

John and I had such a great time at the Memorial Tournament on Friday. We walked around, and then we went and hung out at one of our friend’s houses. What happens is that the majority of houses along the course rent their houses out for the week of the tournament (for a nice price) to businesses to host their parties. Our friend rented his out to a couple businesses, so we got to go in and hang out and drink and eat as much as we wanted! We sat at a table and drank until about 5:30 and then headed home. Then we went out to dinner with my parents.

Saturday morning Ryan let me sleep until 8:00! He has been getting up every morning between 6:00 and 6:30, so 8:00 was heaven! Kylie and Josh were over at my parents’, so we cleaned up and I cleaned out my closet (still trying to make sure all maternity clothes are out and all the clothes that are now too big for me). The kids came over around 10:30 and we had a wonderful breakfast that John cooked for us. The weather was already so gorgeous!

The plan was then to go strawberry picking. So we put sunscreen on everyone and loaded up the car. We headed to a farm that is about 25 minutes from our house. Once we got there we found out that they were out of strawberries! I was so mad! So we tried a different farm, and the u-pick was closed…opening back up on Monday! So we headed back home and the kids took a nap while John and I cleaned up, did laundry, and then sat outside.

When the kids woke up we decided to go on a bike ride. Ryan did wonderfully in the pull-behind thing! We went all the way to the park and then Josh and Kylie played for a while. I even put Ryan on the swing with me a swung a little bit!

We ordered pizza for dinner and then started a fire and hung out with the neighbors for a while. It was so relaxing! Josh ended up staying with my parents again, and Kylie snuggled with me in my bed. Ryan was up twice that night, which was a pain because the second time it was 5:00 AM and I couldn’t figure out why he was up…I had fed him and changed him and he was still crying. After about ½ hour he finally went back to sleep.

At church the next morning Kylie got to go up with her class to sing some songs. She was by far the smallest one up there and she was so adorable!

After church we went home and grilled out some hot dogs and stayed out the whole day! It was so beautiful outside!!! I realized when I looked at the table we had brought out at lunch time and saw the chips and stuff still on it at 7:30 PM that it must have been a great day to not even have gone back inside! Ryan got in his baby-baby pool for the first time and loved it!

I made an awesome salad for dinner (the recipe was completely made up by me which is rare), and I stuffed Ryan full of bananas (both baby food and mashed up real ones) in hopes that he would sleep through the night (it worked!).

I hope this week goes by fast so that we can have another wonderful weekend!
