If I were in to rating days, this weekend would have gotten five stars (or ***** Starr's).
Friday night we went to look at a table I saw on Craigslist. The trip turned out to be a bust (scratches all over the top, much smaller than I wanted), but gave us a nice excuse to get out of the house. We ended up eating pizza with my parents and all got to bed early that night.
Saturday I did some errands and took the babies on a run while J and Addi helped my dad with a project at their house. We did some afternoon swimming and followed that up with our neighborhood block party. It really could have gone either way, but that ended up being a really fun time -- we have an awesome neighborhood with lots of young families!
Sunday was church, swimming for me and the kids, and a fantasy football draft for J. That evening we had J's birthday dinner at Red Lobster with his family.
Yesterday, the bonus day, we managed to cross a lot off of our to-do lists and still get some time at the pool. Last night J and I enjoyed a little time on the couch watching Monday Night Football and eating popcorn. It really is the little things in life, no?
And today we're back to the daily grind with renewed energy and optimism that it'll be a quick week. We have an exciting Saturday planned at the ISU vs. Iowa game. I should start planning/packing now.
Happy Tuesday, everyone.
What post would be complete without a picture of the cutest crawler I know? I could just eat her up with a spoon. :)
