Good day! This awesome breakfast took me just a few minutes to throw together thanks to meal planning and cooking ahead. Wahoo. I knew there was a good reason that I was cooking until 9:30 PM on Sunday!
Speaking of the weekend, people keep asking me what I did and Iâ€™m not really sure â€“ it was one of those Black Hole Weekendsâ€¦ know what I mean? I think we mostly just hung out and ran errandsâ€¦ But thanks to my iPhone, I do have evidence of one really fun outing. We went to my sister in lawâ€™s boyfriendâ€™s house and played in his INCREDIBLE backyard. Seriously, this place is a kidâ€™s dream. He has a slack line for tightrope walkingâ€¦
â€¦ An amazing tire swing, ATVs, a zipline (IN HIS BACKYARD), and a little farm! Complete with chickensâ€¦
And very friendly goats, one of which really wanted to take a selfie with me.
There were lots of toy cars for Henry to organize. I love the way he lines up toys like this â€“ it is so adorable.
And there were real cars, too! Did anyone else REALLY want a Powerwheel as a kid? I lusted for one so badly. The battery in this one was kind of flat so my awesome SIL pushed Henry around the backyard â€“ that was no joke! That thing was heavy. Aunt of the Year!
LOL to Claire charging through the grass. I see so much of Henryâ€™s daredevil personality in her alreadyâ€¦
Our evening of fun concluded with an excellent dinner on the patio. Henry keeps asking when we can go back to Mr. Richardâ€™s â€“ that house put ours to serious shame! And it almost made me want to move out to the countryâ€¦ Almost!
Hereâ€™s todayâ€™s to-go lunch in my stainless steel bento box <— I loved Henryâ€™s so much that I got a bunch more for the whole family.
Oh, and if you saw this post on my Instagramâ€¦
You know that weâ€™ve been having kiddo sleep troubles. Claire is getting both top teeth AT THE SAME TIME (poor dear) and Henry has been coming into our room multiple times a night. Thereâ€™s not much I can do about teething (although I would like to try those amber necklaces â€“ anyone have real success with them?), so I was mostly taking to Instagram for bigger kid advice. I tried putting a baby gate in front of his door and explaining that it was going up as a reminder to stay in his own room (he could, of course, just knock it down) and so far â€“ SUCCESS. Wahoo. I love it when the solution is so easy! It usually isnâ€™t so.. thank goodness!
What was the best thing you did this weekend?
