Happy Monday! I hope you’re all faring well after the dreaded spring forward this weekend. While I love the extra daylight in the evenings, it’s always rough when your body feels like it’s waking up an hour earlier on Monday. Losing an hour of sleep Saturday night also sucks.
This weekend everyone was well here, the weather was perfect, and we didn’t have any big plans, so we spent the weekend outside, lounging, getting a few things done around the house, and spending lots of time with family.
Friday evening’s weather called for pizza and beer out on the back porch, and we let the kiddos play in the back yard until it was completely dark. We turned on some tunes, turned on the twinkle lights, and let them go! Give those kids some bubbles and sidewalk chalk and they’re in heaven.
Saturday was spent getting some things done around the house. My goal for the weekend was to get the kids’ closets completely cleaned out and ready for summer. They’re both growing like weeds, so we’re still in the stages of them needing entire new wardrobes each season. We have already bought several things for Olivia for summer, and while Jacob now wears a uniform, he still needs some clothes for the weekends and for church, so I was able to see what still fit them and get a better idea of what they need. Now to go shopping!
While I was cleaning out the closets, B was at his tennis match so I had no one to help me keep them in line. Thankfully, they played like sweet little angels the entire time. It was a Saturday miracle! And sorry for the grainy picture, but – no fighting! Had to be documented.
While we were cleaning out closets, my dad got to take the ride of his life! For Christmas this past year, my mom and brothers and I bought him a trip to Nascar at Atlanta Motor Speedway so he could drive one of the cars! Now, he’s not actually a huge Nascar fan, but he’s always loved cars and racing, so we thought that he would love it. And he did! He got to do 16 laps in the #1 car and he topped out at 132 miles per hour!
We had originally planned to go watch him, but the weekend originally called for rain, and we weren’t sure how many people were allowed to go with him, and by the time everything was confirmed, Brian had already committed to playing in his tennis match, and I was not about to road trip it to
alone with two kids. Especially that early in the morning. I hate that we missed it, though, because
Daddy had the ride of a lifetime and Jacob would have gone bonkers if he had
gotten to watch. Fortunately, my mom
took a ton of pictures and a video. Doesn’t
he look like pro (and so handsome) in
his suit? Atlanta
Saturday we spent the evening at church, followed by Mexican with my fam where my dad regaled us with his tales of racing from earlier in the day.
Sunday, oh Sunday. I just love me some Sundays. By now you probably already know that we usually go to Brian’s mom and step-dad’s house for lunch and then to my parents’ house for dinner… it’s our family day and one of my favorite days of the week! Yesterday was no different. We ate too much delicious food and then spent the afternoon letting the kids play in the dirt, pick wildflowers, and blow dandelions followed by naps and then more delicious food and family time with my family.
It was a very welcomed weekend after our sick weekend last weekend, and it was much needed as fuel to get through the upcoming week and weekend where B has to work. Boo!!
Enjoy your week!
