Weekend Snapshots

in All Posts


The weather took a turn for the cooler this weekend.  I loved it!


This weekend, we made an epic train track…


Blew out birthday candles at 7:00 AM for no reason…


Slept. A lot…


And ate really awesome food, like these enchiladas…


This corn, spinach, and egg scramble…


Squash delicata, which I made in the crockpot (chopped and seeded pieces for 2:30 hours on low with cinnamon and a dash of olive oil – super easy!)…


And Oh She Glows Date Bars!


I also squeezed in two great workouts – a 2.2 mile walk and a 750 yard swim.  After I swam, Henry and I met up with my friend Brandi and her two kiddos for some fun in the water.  We stayed in the pool for another 1.5 hours.  Henry was practically delirious afterwards – nothing wears a kid out like water fun!

Pregnancy Shelf – perfect for toddlers to sit on.


And last, but not least, I started to tackle the organization of our slightly-scary storage space. I found a ton of old photos, including this awesome pic of my Dad doing a sprint triathlon in 1984:

Seems like this is the transition between the swim and the bike.  Lovin’ the cotton tube socks.


I also found this photo of 2.5 year old me (awesome rocking horse dress!) and compared it to Henry’s recent picture – we look so much alike!

Hope your weekend was fab, too!

    I went for a short walk and run today in the nice cool fall weather. Take advantage of it!

    “nothing wears a kid out like water fun!”

    Lol that is the truth. Its good to have water and a snack for them right after they get their clothes on. Loved the pictures and brief descriptions.

    I started reading your blog while I was on maternity leave and always look forward to your posts. Love the birthday candles for no reason. Little things that make the day special and fun for kids. Henry’s face in the pregnancy shelf picture is priceless.
